    He wasn't fit and his appointment stank of shortsightedness and fear in the FA.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Well said. I'm watching really for the first time with my lads (8 & 6) and it strikes me that the team, how they play, what they talk about and how they conduct themselves is much more important than the result. It's really hard to justify to a kid why "giving bad fouls" is OK. The terms "gamesmanship" or "game management" sound empty to kids, and rightly so. Harry Kane does wonders for the team, in the same way a young Lineker did. Mexico 86 was when I fell in love with England and I hope my boys do too (we didn't win it then either). For all the individual talent of the golden generation, their biggest failure was that they didn't play that well as a team. The perennial Lampard/Gerrard discussion was emblematic of that, as were Rooney and Beckham's moments of petulance. Sven didn't ignite the powder keg of potential, he just aimed to manage it, stop the egos blowing it up and hope for the best. Southgate seems intent on pushing it in a certain direction, using what firepower we have, building a system and acting as a stuard of the team and nation, maybe for the king to one day emerge. This time we're going to get out of the group and if we get to the quarters, by that time, then it's just a flip of a coin decided on small moments, managing substitutions, discipline and most of all playing for each other. Fucking hell...we're going to have a good tournament. Just let that sink in for a bit.

    The only time my train information board has been a) accurate and b) capable of illiciting joy.

    The BBC commentary team are seething at the German performance. It's almost as if they are livid at Germany for never playing that crap against England.

    Wonder Woman 1984

    There's something other worldly about her in those movies. It's a combination of lightning, the stop/start slow motion and that she smiles alot. They shoot her like a portrait. I dunno, she's got that Monroe/Hepburn radiance. I'm actually pretty convinced they made her in a computer with bras on their heads.
  6. Sure. But the Wii U is horrible and my Switch is in my bag.
  7. I'd like to see: Galaxy 1 and 2 HD version remakes. Advance Wars Some new shit.

    E3 2018: Playstation Conference - NO FFVII

    I've chuckled at some of the "broader" commentary around TLoU 2. Women kissing - boo! It's against the laws of God Cut to mass murder - look at the graphics! Back to women kissing - boo! God judges you.
  9. Whenever I've watched a Predator movie, I've never thought "these alien hunter fellas are alright I suppose, but if there were bigger I'd totally be made up".
  10. The first one had heart and tunes. My lads liked it. Vaguely optimistic.

    Where the hell is Pixel Junk Monsters 2? Someone needs to do a continuous dance outside Q Games.

    Is your local cinema terrible?

    The cinema is Woking is a fucking hole. The seats are terrible (and basically laid out flat). It's not often I wish ill on a business but there are so many things obviously wrong with it it, that it deserves to go out of business. When a Vue cinema in Staines is a better option, you know it's poor.
