  1. Just over 6 years since I took my son to his first Leicester game. We lost 2-1 to Charlton but ended up winning the Championship that season. The following year was the great escape where we won 7 of our last 9 to stay in the Premiership. Next year we win the bloody thing. Following year we get to the quarter finals of the Champions League. Then two top 10 finishes and the death of Vichai. @Naysonymous, if you have even a tenth of the enjoyment I’ve had with my son watching Villa, I guarantee you’ll have an absolute ball. Hope you have a great time tonight. Just remembered, that wasn’t even his first game which was when England fluked a 1-0 win against the world champions, Spain, at Wembley.
  2. Laporte out for 3/4 months. Kompany struggling at Anderlecht. Jan swoop for Kompany? Otamendi has always been a bit of a liability and Stones must still be suffering from the Nations’ League nightmare.
  3. The pitch looks great, Smith will be in for so long they’ll put him on a map of the Oval. I love watching test cricket but when our batting is so dumb it’s really frustrating.
  4. It’s a disarmingly enjoyable and sweet book without being cloying. I’ve read quite a bit out of my normal genres this year and that and Normal People really impressed.
  5. Batshit crazy game. Keane has looked shaky at the back and Maguire conceded a poor penalty. Going forward we look like the Harlem Globetrotters, at the back we look like we bought the defence from Derek Trotter.

    Pokemon Go

    Last week I got an Unown on my 2nd 10k, then caught 2 shiny gligars. Must have clicked on 300+ Sentrets to no avail. My whole focus though is getting every Pokemon in the Pokedex, whereas my wife wants all the shinies. So whilst I want a Farfethc’d and a Kanga, she is after all the shinies. I gave the game a break about a year back but the August events got me back into and it’s been great for my health. Walking 150k a week now which is really impacting on my general fitness and made the post-Summer work return fairly pleasant.
  7. There’s a Back to School sale which has got some great stuff for £3. Over 300 titles, including the Complete Short Stories of J G Ballard. Just the 63 hours of content... Might dabble in 1Q84, Toast on Toast and some Max Hastings.
  8. I was at the game as well and was really impressed with the standard of keeping; Spurs keeper was excellent throughout. Ji So Yun played the No. 10 role perfectly and constantly made a huge amount of space for herself. Erin Cuthbert also looked fantastic when she came on. Great atmosphere, the general level of organisation was really impressive too. Worst part?

    Gears 5

    The last 3 levels I’ve played, I’ve completed the level and then got to the end cut scene. Once this has played out the screen has then gone black. I can seemingly still play as my character, fire, use Jack etc. but the screen is blank. Repeating the end of levels is starting to grate. Then when I go to load the checkpoint up again, the game has me stuck in a loading scene. Only solution is to back out to the dashboard and restart.

    Gears 5

    I haven't had any crashes, glitches or save point deletions. Looks lovely but the AI is Ken Dodd daft in places. Went into an area crying out for stealth and one of my fellow lumps blunders in front of me smashing a chair whilst I'm trying to stealth into position. Not that the enemy heard the chair break. Right next to them.
  11. If you thought the OG for NI was bad last night, the OG that Wales have benefitted from is hilarious.
  12. I read it over the Summer. Entertaining throughout, quite open in places and he comes across as a bright and amusing guy.
