  1. Paddy's "Things that cheer you up"

    Good work! I’ve lost about 18 kg since mid summer, gone from very much out of shape to feeling as physically fit as I was at 18 and still played football five times a week. I play coy about it, but every little comment cheers me up.
  2. Anyone Watching A Good Tv Show?

    Godless is very good. I got the RDR feeling, too.
  3. Ratings & Reactions: Leeds v Villa

    There are some. Our defending is generally excellent, and I think Grealish is showing signs of being the player we all want him to be. Lansbury returning with a goal is very welcome news, with Hourihane looking like he needs a rest. I have never shied away from criticising Steve Bruce’s Aston Villa, so if I can find positives, I’m sure you can too
  4. Ratings & Reactions: Leeds v Villa

    I’ll take the point, and we more than deserved it despite not playing very well. I’m slightly annoyed we didn’t win, though, because with a bit more quality upfront, we would have. Leeds didn’t impress me at all - our defenders deserve some credit for that, to be fair.
  5. Match Thread: Leeds v Villa

    Yeah, I like the kid, but we win this game with a better striker.
  6. Match Thread: Leeds v Villa

    Already should have been, imo.
  7. Match Thread: Leeds v Villa

    Nah, I don’t see it. They are very beatable.
  8. Match Thread: Leeds v Villa

    Need to change it up for the second half. Our attackers have been awful. Still, no reason not to get anything from this. Leeds really aren’t very good. A bit more quality on the ball and a bit more commitment going forward, we can score one or two quite easily.
  9. Park Life: AVTV Live

    The app has never worked for me and streaming on my (admittedly slow and old-ish) laptop has been extremely patchy. I’m happy to pay good money to watch the games but the service provided should be far better. Maybe it’s just me and my slow laptop, but having the streaming site constantly load twitter messages and graphics doesn’t seem like a good idea.
  10. Ratings & Reactions: Villa v Ipswich

    This needs to stop. I didn’t sign up to be a glory hunting fair weather fan.
  11. Gym Routine

    I lost 16 kg between July 1 and mid September. More than I needed to, but it left me room to bulk up and add a little muscle while trying not to add the fat back on. I’ve been doing stronglifts since then and progressed nicely, even if my weight has remained surprisingly steady at 88 kg. My muscle mass has increased but the fat percentage has, to the naked eye at least, kept falling. I was really happy with all of that, which is why I’m now in a bit of a pickle: Yesterday, I did my lower back with some poor form deadlifts after two weeks off because of a nasty cold. I’m in quite a bit of pain and have concluded I can’t do squats, deadlifts or rows again until my back is better. Judging by the pain I’m in today, that might take a while. So now what? I want to keep working on my chest and shoulders, so hopefully bench press and shoulder press is still on. Should I take up cardio work again, which was on hold while I was doing squats three times a week? and add some stretching/agility drills? Or do I simply wait a few days and start from scratch while focusing on proper form?

    I usually spend an irrational amount of time every game being annoyed at fellow fans’ need to criticise their own team. It’s the same at my local team in Norway too: there’s a family that sits behind me that spends the entire game moaning about how shit we are. Even at 5-1 up one game they were at it. You wouldn’t believe their almost gleefully expressed despair if a ball is played backwards or sideways. At 5-1 up. Why? Why can’t some supporters find it in their hearts to actually support their team?
  13. World Cup 2018: Russia

    Yep. I have a big, green soft spot for Ireland but Denmark have a much better side playing much better football.
  14. World Cup 2018: Russia

    Heja Sverige!
  15. Ratings & Reactions: Villa v Sheff Wed

    Start O’Hare and Grealish next time and we might look like a football team. Promising signs from both of them. It’s looking more and more likely that Hogan won’t be a success here. I’m sure he’s a good player but it’s just not happening. I hope Terry isn’t out too long. I’m certainly no fan of Steve Bruce but today was just one of those days that happen and you need to move on from and forget.
  16. Match Thread: Preston v Villa

    Right decision by Bruce. Shame, as Davis was too much for them.
  17. Match Thread: Preston v Villa

    I’m not sure that’s right.
  18. Match Thread: Preston v Villa

    Seems fair enough. Never a red, though.
  19. Match Thread: Preston v Villa

    The football really isn’t great but it’s been been enough to be comfortably better than them. As happy as I am with the result, I hope we step it up a notch after the break. That being said, much better from Onomah today and, playing the way we do, Keinan Davis is such an important player for us.

    ‘Zackly. It’s a pointless suspension. Kershaw v Keuchel should be epic. Damn you, time difference!
  21. Baseball 2017

    The optics matter a great deal here. Appealing wouldn’t reflect too kindly on the Astros either.
  22. Baseball 2017

    Powerful message there, Manfred. Racism is bad, but missing a WS game would be worse. Didn’t want to punish the 24 other players? Eff right off, you spineless tw@.
  23. Baseball 2017

    The Astros are a team full of a-holes. Yuli Gurriel needs to be suspended.
  24. Keith Wyness

    I don’t know, but General Krulak might know who to ask. (Open the tweet, scroll down to the end)
  25. Baseball 2017

    They certainly are and they’ve earned it. It’s a team full of incredibly punchable faces and unpleasant personalities, though, so I wish them no luck in the Series. The Yankees aren’t ready yet. Coming so close already is way ahead of schedule. They’ll have learnt plenty from the experience and ready to have a go again next year, and by 2019 they’ll be unstoppable.
