  3. Goodreads Reading Challenge/General Bookery

    Granted that it was a good length book to do it with, but I knocked off The Ocean at the End of the Lane in a single evening because I could not put it down - I did so about 3/5 of the way into it but then had to pick it back up and finish it before I slept. All of the Gaiman books that I have read so far have done that to me and I'm saddened that I think I'm at the end of the ones that will have the feeling and flow that I want.
  4. Premier League 2017/18

    I say it again: Wenger is morphing into 3rd season Mourinho.
  5. The January Transfer Window - 2018

    Sky Sports reports that Chelsea ARE interested in signing Andy Carroll on a permanent transfer.
  6. Premier League 2017/18

    Philadelphia was always a better choice anyway.
  7. Premier League 2017/18

    Newcastle takeover is OFF.
  8. The January Transfer Window - 2018

    Tottenham have joined the race to sign Norwich City midfielder James Maddison, the London Evening Standard reports.
  9. What bands do you hate?

    Other than the songs Mr. Roboto and Grand Illusion, I don't really like Styx, either.
  10. TV Shows With Complete Arcs

    Arguably, Mad Men fits the bill. You just have to take it as an existential overall arc - which was pretty much the intention. Lady Dynamite might also fit this. It appears to have ended early (it’s still unclear why), but there’s a meta-narrative across both seasons that wrapped up nicely.

  12. Premier League 2017/18

    I agree 100% with Wenger on this one. He is a disgrace, it’s not just against us though. In general, he is not good enough to be refereeing at the top level, not even close. He doesn’t help his own cause by being the epitome of arrogance. He makes decisions with the sole objective for him to be in the discussion post-match. I don’t see how he can referee an Arsenal match in the future either.
  13. The January Transfer Window - 2018

    Exactly. Worst part was that he was proven completely right when he won the league at the first time of asking. Sometimes you have to look at yourselves, and unfortunately we’re not at that place anymore where players believe they can flourish and have their best years here. We’re too stagnant and there’s not enough accountability. Look at Alex Iwobi. He will be another. With the right coaching, he could be an unbelievable player, but I just can’t see him improving enough under Wenger’s management now, and that makes me sad.
  14. The January Transfer Window - 2018

    This is pretty much the same for me. I was so pissed off that we stuck by him through all his many injuries and he has one injury free season that was amazing and he immediately fucks off to United. With hindsight maybe he was just ahead of the curve. I don't begrudge him, or Sanchez, Ox or even Nasri for leaving to improve their own careers and win trophies, I'm just frustrated that it never seems to happen at Arsenal. The recent FA cup wins have been amazing and I am grateful for each but man, I don't think we've ever been a million miles off the premier league title, squadwise. Injuries and bad tactics just plague us.
  15. Final Fantasy

    Putting those speed up buttons in these remake games is the best thing ever, huh? Starting FF12 wasn't tedious at all and I'm looking forward to using the feature to grind and get from point A to point B.
  16. EWR February Update?

    So just got through reading the whole "Hi everyone" thread...wow; anyways, not sure who is going to take up the reigns on the updates, but I would be happy to help in anyway possible.
  17. General Gaming Thread

    Remember how we talked about the new hospital tycoon game that was straight-faced and lacking in Theme Hospital-esque silliness? This one's aiming to do it the right way.
  18. General Gaming Thread

    Cuphead isn't the game I'd judge myself again, it's built to be hard - haha.
  19. General Gaming Thread

    I traded in Wolfenstein for Lego Marvel 2 and I am a lot happier
  20. General Gaming Thread

    While playing Cuphead I discovered I'm real bad at video games anymore. My hand eye coordination has atrophied and I can only play PC games (like WoW) and Minecraft and be any good. Speaking of Minecraft, bought it for a third system.. I always get sucked into it.
  21. TV Shows With Complete Arcs

    Vince Gilligan said he didn't always have things mapped out exactly but for the most part, Breaking Bad's episodes served only the purpose of moving the story forward.
  22. General Gaming Thread

    I fucking hated that one. I had to lower the game to the absolute easiest difficulty to get past it, it's just horribly, horribly designed.
  23. TV Shows With Complete Arcs

    Sons of Anarchy, depending on who you asked (mostly if you asked Kurt Sutter he'd say there was no filler).
  24. TV Shows With Complete Arcs

    The Shield
  25. The January Transfer Window - 2018

    I only meant Arsenal to United and vice versa specifically, I had forgot even RVP and Welbeck to be fair, I seem to remember the van Persie transfer didn't go down well at all.
  26. The January Transfer Window - 2018

    What I would say, is with the majority of those, we did sell at the right time and their best days were behind them. Toure, Adebayor, Nasri, Clichy and Gallas all definitely fall into that bracket. Although Clichy and Nasri went to have success in terms of trophies, I wasn’t particularly unhappy in the end as we had a perfectly capable replacement for Clichy and Nasri was just a prick. When it comes to Cole and van Persie though. Sigh. On the Ox sale, I’m completely fine with that one. We have had him on our books since he as 17 and he just hasn’t developed as we thought. There is a heck of a talent in there somewhere, he just doesn’t do it enough and when he does get on a decent run of form, he’ll get a niggling injury, be out for a few weeks and he’d have to start all over again. Getting £35m(?) for him was a good bit of business and I certainly won’t begrudge Liverpool if he does turn out to be a real solid first teamer. Sometimes a player just doesn’t fit certain surroundings. The main reason van Persie left was as he didn’t agree with the way the club was moving forward, at the time I had bought into all this talk about us being able to compete once the stadium was paid for and thought van Persie could have shown more loyalty and seen it through. Now we are where we are, and I can see exactly why he made the decision to leave.
