    I love how cumbersome the social feed thing is when it talks about tactics and formations. "ANYONE ELSE THINK 5-1-2-2 SWEEPER DM WB IS THE WAY TO GO?"

    Don't think you could really say anything bad about Cech to begin with but this is just so great, given the circumstances.
  4. What Did You Watch Today?

    There's a part of me that feels a lot of the praise for Gary Oldman (while he's obviously very good, no doubt) also just owes a large debt to the make-up and prosthetics. Cause people love it when an actor disappears in to a role and you can't even recognize them and all that kind of thing, and here it's the case but with a big helping hand that makes it seem better or somehting? If that makes sense? Not sure I'm articulating it properly.
  5. General Movie Thread

    Johann Johansson has died. Which seems to have come fairly out of nowhere, dunno what happened, he was only 48. He was a great composer though, his scores for Sicario and Arrival were amazing.
  6. What Did You Watch Today?

    Phantom Thread: Absolutely loved this. Feels like I was predisposed to liking it because Paul Thomas Anderson is my absolute favourite filmmaker and he hasn't made a film I haven't liked (or loved, like There Will Be Blood and The Master). But it really is so good. Daniel Day-Lewis is great, no point even mentioning that really, but Vicky Krieps and Lesley Manville are really great too. I actually think Reynolds is the weakest of the three main character, not in terms of the writing or performance, but he feels setup to being this domineering figure who needs to be in control and everyone subservient, but then Alma tests him repeatedly and doesn't really just settle for his shit the way he wants, and it becomes fairly clear that Cyril is very much someone who, even when he's being childish and going mad, stays composed and won't put up with his nonsense. AND JONNY GREENWOOD'S SCORE. I'm rambling. Is good. Watch it.

    Can't really settle on a save, so I just started a game and took over City halfway through the season cause Pep got sacked. They were 8th when I took over and even though it's just a nothing save, it's led to one of my favourite season endings ever just for amusement alone. Don't see how Manchester United as a club recover from this tbh. We were top for literally one matchweek and it happened to be the title decider in which we ruined United fans dreams. Then again in the FA Cup Final. Then again in the Champions League Final. Just fold lads. Half tempted to just go mad until I get bored and just sign all the top boys. Front three of Dybala, Aguero and Icardi or something.

    I've seen it a few times but in the social feed when there's an item about a player getting injured, one of the reactions to it is quite often "This is so unrealistic!" and I honestly have no idea at all what it means? Like, how does that make any sense as a response to news about an injury?
  9. The January Transfer Window - 2018

    Arsenal are apparently interested in either David Luiz or Kostas Manolas. SO Arsenal. Most clubs would just sign the good one.
  10. The January Transfer Window - 2018

    I love how transfers now are making it seem realistic for when in FM you enquire about a player and they come back with SIX HUNDRED MILLIONS PLZ
  11. The January Transfer Window - 2018

    And Arsenal
  12. The January Transfer Window - 2018

    I kind of feel like even Pep was caught off guard by just quite how well City have been so far, so he kind of went from wanting Sanchez last Summer, to not really being that bothered now, certainly not enough to shell out that much money on wages. No real secret that their defence is probably their weakest area though, Stones, Otamendi, Mangala and a perpetually crippled Vincent Kompany are probably not a good enough bunch of centre backs for City really. At least next years FM will be different with not everybody trying to sign Laporte anymore.

  14. What Did You Watch Today?

    Few things I've watched lately; Lady Bird: Adored this. Just really lovely. Saoirse Ronan is just never ever not great, thought the relationships with her friends and particularly her parents were really quite affecting and sweet. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri: Also very much enjoyed this, generally a fan of Martin McDonagh anyway and loved In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths so I felt like it was always likely I'd enjoy this. Frances McDormand is great, Sam Rockwell is Sam Rockwell aka great, Woody Harrelson's character wasn't what I expected, in a good way, quite a sympathetic character. Pretty impressive bunch of films those McDonagh brothers are putting together. In Bruges, The Guard, Seven Psychopaths, Calvary, this. The Killing of a Sacred Deer: Unsettling as fuck, just relentlessly so. I was so uncomfortable the whole time and a bit on edge. I liked it but it's not one of those films I could say I "enjoyed". Just the music and the weirdly deadpan dialogue, and even the cinematography at times just create such an unsettling atmosphere the whole time. The Disaster Artist: Don't know how I feel about this? I generally don't get the weird cult around The Room anyway so maybe I'm not the target audience to "get" it, and if Tommy Wiseau is anything close to how he's portrayed in this he's at best annoying as all fuck and at worst absolutely fucking horrible? Also couldn't tell if Dave Franco's hair and beard were, in the world of the film meant to be something the character was wearing for the role but then it became clear it wasn't and I kept getting distracted by it because it looked terrible to me.
