  1. Re: Official Manchester City Thread Agree with Stuart, Demichelis will get the blame because he looks like an aging fat wrestler but Kompany being 5 yards deeper than the rest of the back four is where the chance originates. Demichelis probably just goes to ground instinctively. 0-1 is far from a disaster given the circumstances, incidentally.
  2. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread Albion have been painful to watch in clusters for a while now. I don't think he'd have turned it round, his selection and ideology today and last week were that of a scared, safety first manager. The Villa game was about as well as we've played in the last couple of months and adequately summed up some of Clarke's achilles heels. We never really settled on a game plan at 2-0 and then he dithered and chose to be reactionary when Lambert made the triple sub that changed the game despite the fact that everybody in the ground felt the momentum swing almost ins
  3. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread To play Devil's Advocate for a moment, is it not at the very least an anomaly worth investigating that black coaches are statistically hugely underrepresented. The pertinent question being why and unfortunately there's no easy answer, and certainly not one that will stop some people on either side of the debate becoming instantly offended and vitriolic. It simply can't be that they're less proficient and I don't buy that they're less interested in coaching, maybe that's true of some black ex-players but the statistics suggest that interest alone can't acco
  4. Re: When Sir Alex Leaves who will be Manager ? x2. How unexpectedly lovely to see TalentSearcher still beating his Mourinho drum. Some things never change.
  5. Re: The Official NBA Thread I don't think the Suns will be -that- bad this season. Probably lottery bound but I'd be surprised if they trouble the Cavs, Raps, Bobcats and maybe even Jazz or Hornets for worst record. Nash is still Nash even if he's a step or so slower. Gortat is one of the better centres in the league and they have decent perimeter players that can shoot the ball like Dudley, Hill and Frye. It's a terrible roster going forward (beyond Markieff Morris, anyway) but then any organisation that was actually interested in rebuilding rather the bank balance would have traded Nash whe

  9. Re: The Official NBA Thread Watching the Clips is going to be like highlight reel central now with CP3 tossing the ball up for Blake. Really kind of wish they could have gotten him without dispensing of one of Gordon or the Minny pick though. They're building something potentially special there for the first time in an age and Gordon is developing into a great (if a little short) 2 guard. And that 2012 draft is stacked. Can't really complain with a core of Paul - Griffin - Jordan though, even if they're overpaying the latter and the former only has one meniscus. As for my Magic, it's all ba
  10. Re: Rate/Discuss Recent Films You HAVE Seen If you ignore everything he did in the noughties bar Inglorious then yeah' date=' sure. Not that he did a string of -really- terrible films or anything, but his work post-Jackie Brown was underwhelming a long time. [i']Drive[/i] was the last thing I watched and it was hugely enjoyable. Pretty sure I have a man crush developing for Ryan Gosling who is ridiculously awesome, and a more conventional one for Carey Mulligan, who's ridiculously cute.
  11. Re: Right now i'm listening to... (no football themed songs) 8JwXCBi-Eh8 I adore this album a stupid amount.
  12. Re: The Politics Thread Aye, and Mussolini always got the trains running on time. You can find good in most anything if you try hard enough, it's whether that good outweighs the (in this case enormous) amount of bad. They were also both massive tools, for the record.
  13. Re: Any good books suggestions? I hope you've read it, it's one of my favourite books. I love it so much I bought the t-shirt, literally. As for recommendations, what you've suggested isn't really my forte but William Gibson might fit. Coincidently I finished this today, it was even more wonderful than I expected.
  14. Re: The Blizzard Whoops. Apologies at my tardiness, haven't been around for a while. If you like Gab Marcotti and James Horncastle I'd imagine it's right up your street. Issue Zero is but a dim and distant memory as I only got the digital copy but the first two proper editions have been great. I particularly loved Sid Lowe's interview with Lillo, who is a fascinating character, in #1, but the stuff on le Harve, Jonathan Wilson's Bilardista piece and Tim Vickery's column were all great too. And of couse The Ballad of Bobby Manager makes for a nice change of pace in both copies. I haven't fin
