  1. Anyone Watching A Good Tv Show?

    Well, I'm miles behind on Black Mirror, which I'm watching in order, and have just finished watching the one called 'Shut Up and Dance' which was certainly pretty brutal. They're all entertaining, but they are a bit variable in terms of quality, which I suppose is true of all anthologies. I think the overall standard is extremely high really. The 'White Bear' episode @Shropshire Lad mentions is one the best so far IMO.
  2. Ross McCormack

    Judging by the video posted on the previous page, he doesn't even have to worry about defenders closing him down, let alone kicking lumps out of him. Is it really as tough as you're suggesting?
  3. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    Oh don't get me wrong, I agree he was always trying. I don't think he was being lazy, just that his movement wasn't very good for a while. He's got a lot better in recent games, it isn't just about our tactics. I think he's a real confidence striker.
  4. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    I completely disagree. There were a number of games where his movement off the ball was very poor.

    Stoke is part of the West Midlands region, but it's hardly a rivalry. It's halfway to Manchester.
  6. The Film Thread

    Yes, The Running Man is excellent! A good example of how to do an action movie that's still based around an interesting premise and worth watching. See also: Total Recall. But Commando is an essentially plotless movie that seems to only exist as filling between quips. On to comedy: Wayne's World Napoleon Dynamite

  8. James Chester

    That's interesting. Might well account for why our CB's were (unusually) our weak link yesterday.
  9. Ahmed Elmohamady

    He's been a very good signing and Elmo right, Hutton left seems to work very well. That being said, for those who care about such things, he's definitely our Prime Hoofer these days.

    I wouldn't count out Burton yet. They've known they would be down there all season and they won't be too disheartened to be bottom just on goal difference. They're only two points from safety and they are capable of beating some of the weaker sides in the division. About two months ago, it looked very much like 3 from 4 going down (Burton, Sunderland, Birmingham, Bolton). All four are still in massive danger, but they've managed to drag Hull, Barnsley and Reading very much back into danger, and at this point I think it could be any three from that 7 (though Reading do have a better squad and should probably be okay in the end, but their form is horrible right now).
  11. Watford

    They should have let him go to Everton, but I can't say I blame them for sacking him. He was obviously making eyes at other clubs, and their form is abysmal. It's all very well being 'ambitious' and 'upwardly-mobile' but it only works while the results are at least decent. They could still get relegated this season.
  12. January transfer window 2018

    We need a striker, and Ulloa fits the bill perfectly. I don't know who we're going to find otherwise. Big worry for me, this.
  13. James Chester

    The phenomenon of 'players who are too good for the Championship but not good enough for the Premier League' is well understood by most people in the context of strikers, with Dwight Gayle looking like the latest example. But I don't see any reason it can't be extended to CB's, and there must be an argument about Chester in that regard. Certainly in the Premier League you would have to assume that his mistakes in the last two matches would have been punished by goals, rather than embarrassingly poor shots.

  15. Fans Consultancy Group Meeting

    Yeah, I assume that there's an increasingly large number of people like me who just don't bother going to the outlets any more. It's beyond ridiculous how slow it is.,
