  1. I respect the guy for remaining dedicated to Villa throughout some incredibly difficult personal times, but this was the right decision. Hope they've got someone else lined up and we can get them in quickly.

    John Terry

    I'm not surprised he's going, didn't think he'd stay if we weren't promoted. I'd love to know what his influence was like in the dressing room; I suspect it was massive, and you can't put a price on that.
  3. The match played well to Stephanie's strengths, letting her get some sneaky attacks in while accepting the fact that she's not a pro wrestler. Kurt looked better than he did in his Shield guest-spot, but he hasn't been particularly mobile in a while and honestly I worry for him every time he's in the ring. One of the things I thought the match did well was manage Angle's injuries while still making him look effective. Rousey meds more time to improve on the mic, but her fighting abilities were never in question. Yeah, this was one of my two matches of the night (the other being the Intercontinental title match).
  4. When the brand split first happened Smackdown was by far the better show, and when Raw improved and Smackdown worsened I heard it was because they moved some of the Smackdown writers across to Raw. Assuming that to be the case, I'd move thosr writers back to Smackdown and let Shane Captain that ship and give Raw to Trips. The McMahon kids have always had a problem with putting themselves over at the expense of wrestlers, so that could be a problem, but Trips seems to know how to build good matches regardless.
  5. I enjoyed WM34 a lot more than I thought I was going to. Rollins-Balor-Mizz was always going to be great and they didn't disappoint; I think Rollins might well be Raw's most valuable player right now. The women's matches were all well wrestled, but I didn't like the end of the Flair-Asuka match at all. First they made Asuka look weak, and then they interrupted Charlotte's celebration to make it all about Cena. Rusev losing sucked, especially on Rusev Day - and wow, Randy Orton looks like he can barely be bothered any more. The booking on Reigns-Lesnar was awful, typical "make Roman look like superman" bullshit, so the ending came as a real surprise - and given the negative crowd reaction it wouldn't surprise me if the rumours about Vince calling an audible were completely true. Styles-Nakamura was a shock dud, although the heel turn might fire Nakamura's up a bit. And how close did they come to messing up Daniel Bryant's return? Way to massage your own ego, Shane. But for me the real surprise was the mixed tag match. I was dreading it; watching two old men, one non wrestler and one debutant go at it was not a prospect I was looking forward to. What we got was a really entertaining, well paced match that told a coherent story and allowed everyone to play to their strengths. Rousey looked great on offence, and I particularly liked her "I'm just going to back in there and continue beating up your wife" line to Trips. If the stories about Trips taking a personal hand in this match's planning are true then it's only more proof that Vinny Mac should hand over the reins.
  6. Imagine the stink that MOTD would have kicked up if it had been anyone other than good ol' honest lad Troy Deeney trying to crush Joe Allen's head like a grape. Not got him on for an interview tonight, Lineker?
  7. Enjoyed Summerslam a lot; loved the main event, great match between Bliss and Banks, good tag-team action, decent stuff between Styles and Owens, and some great lines from Cory Graves on commentary. If anything, seeing the two brands side by side really demonstrated how much better the Raw commentary is - even Booker. Plenty of bad stuff too, though - I almost feel asleep during Corbin/Cena, which isn't great for your opening match, and what was the point of the Orton/Handsome Rusev match? Best moment - Cesaro vs beachball. Worst moment - The Heartbreak Kid, Mr Wrestlemania, dressed as Colonel Sanders. Can't JBL give him some stock tips or something? Guy must be desperate for money.
  8. Never get your eyes tested at a non-priest optician - they'll shaft you every time.
  9. Wait wait wait... IF we lose the next match we COULD be bottom which MIGHT lead to Bruce being sacked? Wow, they really nailed down the facts with this one. Thanks for the brilliant insight, Daily Star journalist!

    It's pretty easy to jump in anywhere, my first episode was thirty-something, although I remember laughing particularly hard at episode 59, Candy Apocalypse. It's very not safe for work, mind. The only time I've seen him do that is on Cats Does Countdown, so... kinda? One of them will read out an advert, then they all try to unpack the situation that might lead to someone wanting to sell that particular thing, or request that particular service, or so on. It's funnier than I'm making it sound.

    A quick mention for Free To A Good Home, just back after a six-month hiatus and funny as ever. Two Aussie comedians and a guest (also a comedian) pick apart listings from Gumtree and Craigslist. I love it, although it's caused me some embarrassment from laughing out loud in the street and while shopping.
  12. I read an interesting thread on reddit earlier about the way Jinder is being portrayed to the Indian audience: https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCircle/comments/6p626u/spoilers_i_watched_the_battleground_main_event/?ref=search_posts

    Doctor Who

    Well, two-headed actors are a little thin on the ground.

    Doctor Who

    Because it's Doctor Who. It's got an established fanbase, some of whom will watch regardless of anything they do to the main character, so trying something a bit different is still far less of a risk than gambling on a brand new character with zero brand recognition. As a sci-fi fan in general and a Doctor Who fan in particular, I couldn't care less if the Doctor's a woman now. The ability of timelords to regenerate as a different sex is firmly established in the show's lore, so as long as she's a decent actress I don't see what the big deal is. All she needs is some decent scripts, and frankly that's more of a worry than anything else.
  15. Nintendo owned 49% of the Rare stock. When it became kind've obvious that Rare were looking for someone to buy the company wholesale, Microsoft jumped in and bought up the rest, leaving Nintendo with no real option but to sell their share. Even Rare's founders aren't sure why Nintendo didn't buy them, given how well they'd worked together the past. I've always had a soft spot for Rare, what with them being a local company. Seeing them reduced to making crappy Kinect games makes me sad.
