    Transfer Window Summer 2018

    I really don't see us getting more than 3 loans in. Centre back, left back and striker / right wing forward.

    Irreverentad's Relationship Advice Thread

    Maybe also just try and focus on one date as it comes and don't look forward too much. I started dating a girl in April and it was too close to when I had ended a long term relationship ( only 6-8 weeks afterwards ) but with no rush, no pressure and enjoying a social evening I focused on removing any sense of "after X dates, I should make a decision etc" and luckily after a couple of months things progressed naturally. I don't know how how long you are into the dating process before you get nervous / scared etc, but is it feasible for you to make a strong conscious effort to focus your mind on the present moment of each meet up?

    Ratings & Reactions: Yeovil v Villa

    I only saw the first half fully and brief bits of the second, but it doesn't sound like we improved much. That first half was megalodonshit. My sympathies to Yeovil. We needed the cavalry to rescue us. I know hourihane scored, but he was so, so bad. The second string side can't have any complaints about not getting in the first team, but at least we have another match where these guys will have another chance. New keeper - understandable nerves, but he was decent kicking early on, handled it well at times and of course saved a penalty and clean sheet so he can go away feeling a bit happier with himself. Doyle-Hayes was ok, tidy-ish with safe passing but guilty of wayward crap like everyone else. Tuanzebe, wasn't too bad at times, but also seemed to switch off at times. Elphick, absolute islandwaste that lad. Cheerio, won't be playing for us again I would wager. Another centre half in on loan please. de laet didn't stand out too much, but I don't think he did much badly from memory. Andre, needs more game time, and Rushian was unfortunate to be stranded, and chasing godawful balls.

    Match Thread: Yeovil v Villa

    This is the first bit of football I've seen us play live since last season. Christ it's bad.

    Hourihane has been absolutely dreadful

    New keeper fancied a random dive for no reason pretty disjointed so far but not too surprising. I expect us to improve as we go on

    Formula One - 2018

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/formula1/45188028 Shame, but not surprising I suppose. If he can't get a proper drive with a non rubbish side, I'm not surprised he's packed it in, it's been so depressing seeing him trundle round the back of the grid like this. Don't know how much this is McLaren incompetency versus the regulations to blame

    Cricket: General Chat

    I don't think he should serve any further suspension penalties after this now though, even if he's a dick as I think pre-emptively being suspended from the Ashes took care of that. However, I don't see him starting the next test, as no-one deserves to be dropped. He'll need to earn his place back

    Micah Richards

    and as has been mentioned it also saves a ( little ) bit on costs associating with training, food etc. Not very much, but frankly on the very safe assumption that no one in their right mind will sign him, even paying him up 95% of his contract is worth it

    Pre Match Thread

    starts for doyle hayes, the other keeper, RHM, and Bree please. After that I don't care too much, but I'd like to see younger players get their chance. Win would be good for momentum so perhaps don't need to go overboard in changes, as I do subscribe to momentum, plus an extra game to work on gelling the players can't hurt.

    The Meg Such stupid dialogue, such silly fun. Enjoyed that.
