    Football Thread 2017/18

    I don't really disagree with any of that. He could certainly improve both his finishing and decision making. The claim was that he has only scores that many goals because he's set up so much. That's obviously wrong and using shot conversion to demonstrate that isn't any kind of "stats game".

    Just a quick reminder for you that Sterling has had 78 shots (9th) and scored 17 (4th). His shot conversation rate is nearly 22%. Before the midweek games, that put him 10th in the league, fractionally behind Salah.

    ...which won Goal of the Season...?

    Sterling has obviously missed some very easy chances this year. Claiming that he only scores goals because he gets set up so much is still incorrect.

    10th best shot conversion rate in the league, just 1.5% behind Salah...

    What’s Bluepoint remaking next?

    As one also in the "big Soulsborne fan, never played Demon's Souls" category and seeing many others in it, it seems the obvious choice.

    The fear of forgetting is ridiculous. I leave furniture in weird places or objects in my inventory as reminders, which is eerily like real life I suppose. However, I do believe there's something to be said for the idea that when you start to maximin the game you are giving into the Joja nightmare - doing it for Harvey is a good reason though. Well, maybe not the petty bourgeoisie Harvey, Weinstein-esque manipulator of Maru. If it's Linus then we can start talking.

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance - Pure medievalism!

    People are complaining that this game, like many others, does not have enough non-white characters. Is it not fairly obvious?
  9. I agree with everything you have said. The first writer in my life that where it has genuinely saddened me that there is now a definite limit on the amount I can read by them.

    Dark Souls 3

    I found The Dancer one of the toughest bosses in the game. Using the arena and very judicious selection of when to attack is essential - the relationship between the latter and the speed of your weapon is especially important and made me appreciate that aspect of the game far more than I had beforehand.

    What is the problem with Rod? What makes him a trope? He is often comic relief and in some ways resembles the fast-talking black sidekick character, but he is demonstrated to be a skilled professional, albeit susceptible to flights of fancy and exaggeration.

    Not quite. Firstly, the no toss option is to bowl first, not bat first. Secondly, the no toss option in the County Championship is to encourage more spin-friendly environments rather than the traditional green tops rather than discourage preparing friendly pitched. Indeed, while there are some minor differences, there isn't much home advantage from conditions - certainly not any amount comparable to internationally. For obvious reasons, differences in relative strengths (e.g. swing v spin) tend to be far less significant between counties than between countries. If you introduced a similar system to Test cricket then it might help nullify swing-friendly countries but would be a waste of time in the subcontinent where everyone would want to have a bat anyway. Home advantage is still a big deal - perhaps a little more so now: http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/17967446/home-advantage-rise Personally, I enjoy the home advantage. Boring pitches (Melbourne, Trent Bridge a few years ago) are no good of course. India every now and again prepare some rank day one turner (Pune comes to mind!) which can be an issue because, unlike a bit of a grass on the pitch, that tends to get worse rather than better. However, the importance of different conditions is one of the best aspects of Test cricket.

    India in South Africa so far a refreshing tonic - an absolute green top with plenty of pace and bounce, quality batsmen scoring quickly and classic pervy cameraman shots of women in bikinis in the crowd.
