    Great scenes in disappointing movies

    The most brutal and most memorable moment across both Jurassic Worlds.
  2. Adama Traore fee agreed with Wolves apparently, I'll save my judgement until the window is closed and who else we sign. But at the moment its a shitter that we have sold three of our best Bamford, Gibson and Traore. (Two of the best players in the championship in there respective positions for me, in Gibson and Traore.) We were over dependent on Traore is the second half of last season, but there was a reason for that, because we have no one else who could create chances.
  3. Bamford gone, Traore and Gibson looking like they might leave, looks like we are doing our best to flog all of our best players before the season starts. I don't begrudge Gibson leaving, he deserves another crack at the highest level, but please. Not. Burnley. And not for 13M.

    Avengers: Infinity War - April 2018

    Watched it again last night, what a bloody brilliant movie. New number one for me. Thanos is money, the fight with Hulk at the start sets him up perfectly as the biggest bad of all. Ebony Maw was dispatched with very easily though, after such a great fight sequence in New York.
  5. I don't live in Middlesbrough so I don't see many games, but from what I did see, I'll be massively disappointed to see him go, even at 18M. His decision making has improved massively over the course of the season particularly since Pulis has come in, if that continues to improve, at 18M you have a weapon of a player which may even be considered a bargain in the current climate. I don't think there is a full back who can handle him 1 on 1. Aston Villa realized this in the play off, Hutton kicked lumps out of him and they surrounded him with players and even then he still provided the threat. It would be season breaking for us if we lost him now.
  6. Not particularly optimistic as a Middlesbrough fan. Best I can hope for is shit Pulis football gets us promoted and then we sack him, try and bring someone who will play football and then probably get relegated because we then have a squad that has been built for Pulis football and cant play any other way.

    That 11 man team did have some pretty tidy set pieces like.

    I'm not online much these days but give me a shout too.
  10. It would have been better if Delores was played the exact same way as season one but a ruthless killer at the same time. "Why on earth would you ever be frightened of me?" then snaps a few necks. I think she did it once is the season when she set a few party survivors up to hang and said "Have you ever seen anything so full of splendor?"

    World Cup 2018 Sweepstake!

    Fucking Croatia! Whilst I'm happy my sweeps team got to the final. I wish they didnt get to the final. I might just put £50 on France to win it.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    He is never going to be either of those three players, in terms of consistently producing something out of nothing, being that spark of magic, beating players with moments of brilliance. I think he is a bracket below those guys. I see him more along the lines of a Cavani, Lewendowski, Diego Costa, Type of player, someone who needs players around him to do there jobs and give him some chances. I dont mean that a diminishing way, they are top out and out goal scorers, I just dont think he is in that top bracket of player you mention. I think the reason his influence faded was the move to more counter attacking play, it was Sterling who became our out and out striker in the last two games, and they just happened to be Kanes worst games as he dropped deeper and deeper.

    I think you may need to lower those expectations.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    I dont understand this perception of Wilshire being a creative force. It all seems to stem from that one great game against Barcelona about 8 years ago. What seems to have happened in all of our games, we started off well and then struggle in the second half as we dont have the energy in our midfield. Alli certainly isnt suited to that role or this stystem, and this tournament he has probably been the one player who has been consistently off par. Personally, I dont think this system is all that, its worked well against some of the lesser teams but I think there may have been a little bit of arrogance in England's mentality of we will stick to our tactics and we will beat them, even though we were coming up against a much better Midfield force in Croatia. I think we needed the extra bodies in there, whether that was being bold and switching to a midfield 4 or adjusting the personnel. It'll be interesting to see how this system develops overtime and wether more teams figure us out or wether tweeks are made to give us a plan B and C. Its all easy to say in hindsight though, even though it ends with a tinge of disappointment, its been a great tournament for England.

    Football Kits 2018/19

    That is a great looking kit! (Spot on with the LUKE association you mention like) I got excited when I saw shirts in the Middlesbrough shop without 32Red on, so disappointed when I realized they were kids sizes only.
