  1. Football 17/18

    It's great if you are a West Brom fan though eh @Hugh Jass, just having the chance of seeing some attacking football must be a nice feeling. Just a shame 1 of the games will involve United

    So New Zealand finally got its Government sorted today almost a month after their election. And despite National (torys) getting a bigger proportion of the vote, there is going to be a 3 party coalition to keep them out. Labour, NZ first and Greens going to give it a go. I'm really interested to see how this all plays out. Its already doing wonders for the NZ dollar to GBP exchange rate. Although it's only made a slight dent in the brexit hit so far.

    Precisely - and the main thing is, you get that intense hour every week, it's very rare to not have at least 2 or 3 games in that time slot that go the distance. I don't buy into a lot of the classic American sports hype statements, but when Scot Hanson says (and he says it every week) "the best hour in sports" - he's not lying.
  4. Moving to London- Advice Needed!

    I might not be the best person to answer this but I do know the area a fair bit. Sounds like your best bet would be to look east (or northeast) from Liverpool Street. Places like Mile End, Hackney, Bethnal Green (all in zone 2). They are all very close to Liverpool Street and would be a piece of cake to jump on a tube or bus in the mornings. I think 700 is quite realistic price wise - although prices may have changed so don't quote me on it. Take a look on www.spareroom.co.uk or similar flat sharing sites. The turnover of people in house shares in London means there are always places needing the odd housemate here and there, and it's a great way to have people you know. In terms of gigs, Hackney and shoreditch will have tons of stuff on every night of the week, but everywhere is easily commutable if something further afield takes your fancy. Also: if you play sports that's a great way to meet new people, there's always tons of friendly casual or competitive teams looking for players. I used to play football over Hackney marshes, teams always looking for players.

    Agreed. It is of course just the champions league equivalent of NFL's Redzone, which remains the best sports show on telly.

    Not dominate no. Compete, yes. Great result for Spurs, especially considering their lack of options due to injuries and suspensions. Plus the Dortmund game ending a draw means that one more result and they are safely through - either beat Apoel at home or even a draw with Dortmund should see them through (providing Apoel don't go on a mad one) Another game where Benzema misses golden chances. He may have a good goalscoring record - think I heard them mention he is now 6th in Madrid's all time list, but the amount he misses is unbelievable.

    Really digging daphni's album. That is all.
  9. Football 17/18

    Yeah I kept my mouth shout over the summer with his transfer saga, he obviously isn't worth the money being offered (is anyone?) but I really like him as a footballer. He's the sort of player that if he does eventually go to Barca he will look even better as well because of their style of play, less of a defensive responsibility and better teammates.
  10. Football 17/18

    I was swaying towards watching it, I've got to say. Not because I think it will be a good game but because the early Saturday game is the easiest live game for me to watch at the weekends. Its either that or get up at 5:30am on Sunday for the Arsenal game. Which now I've said it actually sounds possibly better.
  11. Football 17/18

    Right so opinions please: should I stay up tonight to watch the Liverpool/United game - I'm concerned it's going to be a 0-0 bore draw

    That is quite something. Personal favourite part: "inventing psychological problems for themselves in the absence of any real challenges or imperatives to grow as people" If it isnt a parady then let me be the first on here to proclaim: Knob.

    Going to try to get to the New Zealand vs Peru playoff game over here. Bit disappointed they didn't get Argentina, Chile or Columbia but should still be fun to see. I guess Peru is probably the easier of the 4, despite being 12th in the world rankings - but there's another thing that I'd put in a formal complaint about on the topic of things wrong in football. Crazy that a team like Chile who are 9th in those rankings haven't made it. I disagree with the attitude that the teams qualifying that are only there to make up the numbers are replacing teams that are making up the numbers. Chile not being there put pays to that for me.

    How WC playoffs can be seeded is beyond me
  15. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    That's one of the reasons he wanted to pack it in. He didn't enjoy singing lyrics he wrote when he was 18. Id love to see them again though, saw them once at benicassim, I think in there last year of touring and they were phenomenal.
