    Magic: The Gathering

    Sorry it's a bit late @Tourist, but the planeswalker decks (Tezzeret, Ajani, Nissa) are intentionally pretty well balanced and should play nicely with each other. The Nissa vs Ob Nixilis decks you got are what's called a Duel Deck, which are specifically designed to be played against each other. In theory, they would be your best bet for a balanced game. There are a bunch of other Duel Decks, but they've recently stopped producing them, so if you want more I'd get them soon.

    No doubt he'll be hounded off social media now.

    I can only imagine the Arsenal fans felt the urge - first game under a new manager, and most of the crowd fucks off early.

    Keita's fucking sexy, absolutely loving him already. Trent aside (we'll forgive him as he had a very short break), it's been tidy so far. Just need Firmino to score and I'm happy.

    Clashing with the pitch is probably not as bad as I've made out there, it's more distracting than anything else. Kit clashes can be horrific though, there have been times that I've had to differentiate the teams based on positioning and body shape, and green kits (and kits with 2 hard colours like Bournemouth and PSG) are the worst offenders.

    Rllmuk Fantasy Premier League 2018/19

    Jimenez and Pereira happily picking up points whilst sat on my bench, De Gea letting a soft goal in right at the death, and Son is going off to the Asian games which somehow slipped my mind. Yep, typical start to the fantasy season.

    Any green kit can fuck right off. Being colour blind, it can be hard enough watching at times anyway, without some gang of cunts prancing around in their green kits on a green pitch, often against another team wearing red. Fuck off, green kits.

    Premier League 2018/19 season final table predictions

    1. Manchester City 2. Liverpool 3. Tottenham 4. Manchester United 5. Arsenal 6. Chelsea 7. Leicester 8. West Ham 9. Wolves 10. Everton 11. Crystal Palace 12. Fulham 13. Burnley 14. Newcastle 15. Watford 16. Southampton 17. Bournemouth 18. Brighton 19. Cardiff 20. Huddersfield League Cup: Tottenham FA Cup: Manchester United Champion's League: PSG Europa League: Arsenal The team I had most trouble placing was United. With Mourinho having a nervous breakdown (no doubt to be followed by him fleeing the Travel Tavern and driving to Dundee in his bare feet), and Pogba possibly being gone before kick off on Friday, I think they'll struggle. However, just as with last season, the squad on paper is still very strong.

    I've joined with Merseyside Red. I did my team a couple of weeks back though, so I'll have to tinker with it.

    SNES Mini

    I got one yesterday, it really is lovely. I'm a little disappointed that it only has the first DKC though, so I'll be hacking it at some point - which just opens up the possibility of adding Turtles in Time, ISS and whatever other shite I wasted my youth on. Can't wait

    Alien: Isolation

    Bought this the other day, and it's bored me to tears. Having not played much over the last few years, I've a pile of other games to get stuck into, so how long does this take to get going? I saw something suggest it's about 7 hours, which is way too long. For reference on where I'm up to, I've just picked up a hacking tool that I need to find a flux capacitor for before getting a lift to Seegson, while hiding from the guys I nabbed it from.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Sad now. It's been said, but Alli should have been hooked for another midfielder to drop in beside Henderson, because once he got crowded out, the game was gone. The team was essentially 5 defenders lumping the ball up to 4 exhausted attackers, only to see it come straight back. Shortcomings aside though, it's a tremendous achievement. Hopefully Southgate can push on, and start bringing through some of the players from the younger teams, who have tasted success and likely have a better sense on how to see out a tournament. I'm genuinely excited to see how we line up after the World Cup.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    I'm likely not the only one here, but before this tournament I was something of a lapsed England fan. I'd keep an eye on the qualifiers without actually watching most of them, and of course I'd be there come the big tournaments, but after so many years of disappointments and petulance disguised as PASHUN from the likes of Terry, Gerrard and Rooney, it's been hard to truly care. I didn't feel represented by the team at all. Which is sad, because I owe my love of football to the national team. I was 9 in 1996, and whilst I followed the club game (I remember being utterly heartbroken by Cantona's winner in the cup final that year), I could take it or leave it. There were more important things. But then the Euros happened. My God, what a tournament that was. Hideous keepers kits, dentist chairs, the goal from Gazza, that fucking brilliant song - it was so easy for a kid to get swept up in it all. I watched every minute of England's games, leaping in euphoria after each goal, and again after beating Spain on penalties. I was crushed after the semi final, but it didn't matter - I had fallen in love with the game. Not long after, I went to my very first match, watching on as Steve McManaman - my favourite player at the time - scored twice in a 2-0 win over Arsenal. My dad dug out (or more likely found in a charity shop) an old Crown Paints Liverpool shirt - I was retro before retro was a thing, and I wore it at every opportunity. My parents bought me a proper Premier League ball, and every day I'd take it to school, every kick of the ball feeling vital. France 98 rolled around, and there was no fucking chance I wasn't wearing the shirt - and sure enough, for my birthday in May, there it was in all it's reversible glory. And this summer, something special has happened. All of that feeling, born from Euro 96, has come back. Over the last couple of years, Southgate's managed to get rid of the egos that permeated the England team, and built a likeable team, a team that we can be proud of. And somehow, despite a perceived lack of quality (and maybe with a bit of luck), they've got themselves a real chance of winning the whole bloody thing. Win or lose tonight, it doesn't matter - just as I did in 96, there's a whole generation of kids who have fallen in love with the game because of Southgate and his team. Let's hope that they bring the big golden monstrosity home with them - they deserve it, even if only for making this miserable old bastard believe again.

    It's not that bad really. Given his new role as more of a goal hanger, and that Portugal crashed out of the World Cup, I can easily see him playing (and well, at that) for another 4 years. £22 million a season (plus his astronomical wages, of course) is pretty good for one of the best players of all time.
