    NFL and NCAA Football 2018

    Great article (written before the weekend) showing just how bad Brady and the Patriots have been in Miami. https://www.theringer.com/nfl/2018/12/5/18126835/tom-brady-miami-dolphins-new-england-patriots

    League 1, 2, Non League Football 2018-19 Season

    I work in Coventry (near the Ricoh) with a Walsall fan. Should be a fun day.

    Wright has built a persona in the same way that Robbie Savage has (and Collymore hasn’t). Him doing serious stuff is a bit like when The One Show does a “real” piece - there to fulfill a few minutes rather than any real drive to do something.

    A movie watchers blog

    Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. Incredibly competent. Spectacularly efficient. Superbly average. 73%. There are lots of holes to pick if you really want to, because the story is based on something built up over 18 (by this point) books - the concept of Reacher having a daughter he didn't know about. In movie terms, this plot point is 105 minutes in. Anyway, this film has possibly the weirdest relationship to time I've ever seen. Reacher busts someone out of jail, goes on the run with them, ends up in New Orleans and disposes of the bad guys. This is done in what appears to be about two days, but the same time as the Big MacGuffin happens (weekly) and the same amount of time it takes a guy to get himself home from Afghanistan and develop a full blown smack habit and get kicked out of house and home by his wife. Meanwhile the bad guys have a command centre that is exactly like the Armys, which had me wondering for a short while how they managed to get from Washington to New Orleans in about 20 minutes. Also appeared curiously low budget (cf set reuse above), with some fairly obvious background CGI during the low rent finale. Despite all this, I enjoyed it. Because it's competently done by talented people, so there isn't anything obviously wrong with it.

    The same guy owns both teams and built it as a dual-purpose stadium.

    Not too easy. Just taking an axe to the legs of that moral high horse everyone seems to have climbed up on. Want me to post the clip of Klopp celebrating a hard tackle and encouraging the crowd to cheer?

    Yeah. Good job neither of these at the bottom connected.

    No he fucking wouldn't. Your own manager said it wasn't a foul. Gomez's injury was caused by him hitting the advertising hoarding awkwardly. And if Dyche has a team of thugs, then how come we haven't had a red card against us in nearly two seasons? Oh yeah, I forget, we're the cannon fodder, we're just supposed to let you waltz through, can't touch the player, don't you know who were are, we've got 'istory. Fucks sake.

    Klopp said it was a fair challenge. So, you know, go trawl Ben Mees Twitter posts or something,

    The Jack Reacher Thread

    Just finished Past Tense. After a couple of still reasonably decent outings, I really enjoyed this one. It's a little derivative of some other stories - something he's done before to be honest - but the two main mysteries were pretty good and came together nicely. By the end I also cared for characters who weren't Reacher which isn't something Child normally manages to pull off.
