  1. Premier League 2017/18

    Don't encourage him, it's a sickness!
  2. Sky Bet EFL 2017/18

    Dino scored in the first ever football game I attended, legend. The fact he's appointed manager now tells me Westley won't be involved.
  3. Great Tennis Ball Debate of 2018

    Green. I also thought that dress was blue & black.
  4. Formula One 2018

    Ah cool. I hadn't heard the name before so wondered what the significance of it was.
  5. Formula One 2018

  6. Vince McMahon to relaunch the XFL

    Just what we all need, three football leagues all in America. Bet Vince is fuming.
  7. Sky Bet EFL 2017/18

    John Marquis is excellent. Big step towards safety for us tonight, and a win in a Yorkshire derby on the tele to boot.
  8. General Television Thread

    I didn't even know you could just block someone's retweets rather than unfollowing the entire account. I've given up on a few folks who do that a lot.
  9. General Television Thread

    I don't tend to follow people I like from active TV shows for that reason. On Instagram it's not so bad actually, but Twitter you're just asking for loads of spoilers unfortunately.
  10. 2018 NFL Off-Season Thread

    Hey that's my birthday. Pretty good season opener, especially with Cousins leading the Vikings offense for the first time.
  11. EWB PL 17/18: Prediction League

    With you being in the lead, you could just not hold any until the end of the season now and declare yourself the winner .
  12. Sky Bet EFL 2017/18

    Glad Westley is out of a job again at least.
  13. What Did You Watch Today?

    Just watched Focus on Netflix, I don't get how I've literally never heard of this film considering it topped the box office, came out only 3 years ago and starred Will Smith. I always love his movies so I'm usually all over a new Smith flick. Anyway, it was a good watch. Tried to be too clever for its own good at times and didn't quite hit all the marks but was enjoyable enough and the scene at the ("definitely not supposed to be the") Super Bowl with BD Wong was terrific, worth putting the film on just for that.
  14. EWB-FPL Draft League 17/18

    Due to the truncated fixture list this weekend, one of the scores was 7-2 . Well done to @hugobomb for that victory over @Loz that has cemented 3rd place. Got to feel for @Jimmy, who got the 3rd highest score overall but lost 40-19 to me as I top scored with 40 thanks to Big Cenk (on his debut for me) and Robertson. Of course @DMo Salah is still maintaining that 5 point gap behind after an impressive win over bottom-placed @Baddar, 37-3. @MadJack meanwhile went clear of @Moses Julep in 6th with a 12-5 win. These are all good rugby scores! 7 games left, which I think means only the top 3 can now mathematically win the title and the money! Oh, also we are at the point where everyone only has to play everyone else once more, and for me that starts with Dave in a big clash at the top next week!

    Cenk Tosun is good.
  17. 2018 NFL Off-Season Thread

    Tyrann Mathieu's been played by his agent, leaving us because he thought he could get more money then having to accept a 1-year deal for less money than we were offering him as a restructure. Also, it seems everyone we're signing has a big injury asterisk next to their name. Like, they're all decent signings if you're playing Madden but in reality we risk half the team going down injured within weeks of the season starting.
  18. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    I know I'd be okay with you playing your reserves in the derby, do that! Actually, that'll be even worse when we inevitably lose, so maybe don't.
  19. UEFA Europa League 2017/18

    I just read that last time these sides met each other, the guy who actually poisoned Litvinenko attended the game and they found traces of polonium at the Emirates Stadium. Good luck with this one guys .
  20. The England thread

    Young's done pretty well at Man Utd this season, and I'd say should easily be the #2 choice behind Bertrand as it stands. Rose has barely played all year and after that, who else is there? Luke Shaw? Young's keeping him out the Utd side too.
  21. The England thread

    Fair enough, can't argue with that since you no doubt watch Henderson play a lot more than I do. We are short on options at that position though which is the problem I'll agree with you if he plays a significant amount of time over the two games, but otherwise I think putting your one experienced keeper who is actually playing (Forster & Foster are nowhere near contention and Heaton has been injured) in the squad with three youngsters is a good move, especially when you can name 27 guys. Plus it might motivate Hart to see what he needs to catch up with should Moyes give him the shirt for the rest of the season. Not only that, but he's one of the 'Taxicab Four' in the West Brom squad, so on that basis alone I wouldn't be picking him, he doesn't deserve it based on character or performance.
  22. The England thread

    All the Twitter goobs losing their mind make me laugh. People moan at every single squad either because it doesn't feature their favourites or because certain scapegoat players always get picked. Southgate gets called a 'yes man' and 'spineless' yet he's picking players in form for clubs like Burnley, Swansea and Bournemouth, leaving out people like Cahill who probably would be locks under Hodgson even if they weren't getting in their top 6 side, and he's trying to implement a playing style that is totally alien to any previous England side ever thanks to our seemingly eternal penchant to play 4-4-fucking-2. Joe Hart? Well there's 4 keepers and 3 of them are youngsters with next to no international experience. Hart provides that veteran presence in the GK set-up, it's a simple move and one well worth doing when you're picking a massive 27 man squad. Jordan Henderson is getting a load of flack too, I'll assume because he doesn't play the 5 Hollywood balls that Shelvey sends flying every game, and because we actually don't have a wealth of great choices in that position. People expect us to suddenly find a Busquets or Gundogan with a British passport as if that's ever going to happen. The only inclusions I question really are Livermore slightly, and Danny Welbeck. But it's a 27-man squad anyway! I'm hoping he starts with Rashford up front to give him a chance to show what he can do properly since Kane is out, make him the focal point with Alli, Sterling and either Lingard or Chamberlain providing support.
  23. Premier League 2017/18

    The TV deal is so massive now that ticket prices should absolutely be getting cheaper. It's a disgrace really.
  24. FIFA World Cup 2018

    We're now not sending any ministers or royal family members, which I'm fine with. Aside from this spy thing I don't think we should've anyway due to the entire Russian corruption in sport thing and the manner in which they won the bid. Same goes for Qatar, if we even qualify.
  25. WWE 2K18

    All good then, probably a bit the wording and also my interpretation being off. As you were, keep the updates coming @=BK=!
