  1. Seeing as we've finished the other bracket game and it was a success, I have managed a way to do another one. So this is the R+L headliner bracket tournament (Leeds started in 1999 so headliners since then, not including this year). Had to include a preliminary round thing to awkwardly fit them in but it should work. The game is not "who put on the best headline set?" because nobody has seen all of them. It's just "who is the best act to have headlined so far in that time?". Voting windows are midnight to midnight and there are two ties to vote on per day until we reach the quarter finals. However, the qualifying round has an odd number of ties and today isn't a full day so vote on the first three ties until the end of tomorrow (00:00 Saturday). Those ties are: The Prodigy vs. Queens of the Stone Age The Killers vs. Arctic Monkeys Mumford & Sons vs. Paramore Same tie-break rules as last time; it's all on the first person who hasn't yet cast their vote to come along and cast their vote to decide. Also no new accounts signing up just to vote cos that's weird - at least throw a comment in another thread or something to make it less obvious. Finally if the qualifying round thing is confusing anyone, just know that: Saturday will be Smashing Pumpkins vs. The Charlatans / Biffy Clyro vs. The Strokes. Sunday will be Muse vs. The White Stripes / Razorlight vs. Franz Ferdinand Monday will be Pixies vs. The Libertines / Pearl Jam vs. Fall Out Boy Tuesday will be Disclosure vs. Foals / Foo Fighters vs. Iron Maiden Wednesday the first round proper will start and you'll vote on the first two ties in that round. Have fun. Let me know if you need anything explaining.

    It was a good free kick but giving one away in such a position during the late stages when defending a lead is tantamount to a mistake. Not saying those errors will affect them going into the next game but it did happen and was a part of their game. It’s a little reminiscent of that E.A.S.Y headline from the 2010 draw.

    I feel like Spain are the best team we’ve seen going forward, but even they conceded three in various poor circumstances. Big day for Belgium and England to put their case forward tomorrow.

    Yeah Gucci lad said as much. Don’t particularly agree, seeing as it supposes that the 1st and 2nd team in Group H are no different and that a Mexico team on maybe 9 or 7 points would be a cakewalk. If Germany (and Brazil now) are showing faults then let’s have them rather than trying to put off all the big teams until we surrender at the semi final stage. The tournament so far is showing that it’s all to play for.

    Loving the succession of the big boys being unimpressive.

    2019 Headliners

    Nah come on. I'm not president of the Noel Gallagher fan club (cos I'm vice president) but the man is an absolute unit and even his latest, apparently commercially disappointing album gets to no. 1 and sells copies quicker than Foo Fighters, Kasabian, Muse, etc. so to say he's as big as a third down act or the classic ropey sub choice is daft. And this is a guy who, by rights, should barely be selling albums at all because people generally go to his gigs to hear old songs by his old band.

    2019 Headliners

    Forgot about that one. Perhaps he'd support the right act then, like, but I think the ego is definitely in play when he could make a bunch of money supporting Kasabian or Kings of Leon at IOW or R+L but chooses to be the star of the show at Tramlines or YNOT.

    2019 Headliners

    If they could get him in that slot they absolutely would. I would think they'd be happy to have him sub. It's just that he's clearly not interested in playing support for anyone. He still sells out arenas, still sells albums in massive volumes, and he will carry on doing that for the foreseeable future. Anyone suggesting that because he plays events headlined by Friendly Fries or whoever means that he's only as big as those acts and could only attract the same level of crowd is clearly out of touch with reality.

    I updated one the other day so that’s not it. But yeah, there’s only two stages with any running order yet so a clashfinder is of little use at the moment.

    Depends who’s on at the same time. Tame Impala were up against things like The 1975 and Chvrches, so that started off with a very small and attentive crowd which quickly and quietly found itself surrounded, like off The Birds. Think they might do well before AOR forebearers Fleetwood Mac.

    2019 Headliners

    He already chose the life of headlining any old field jamboree over sub slots at major festivals, didn’t he? And he will always have a place at those I reckon. Liam’s at his peak popularity right now anyway, and he knows it else he wouldn’t have crammed four years of moneyspinning slots into one summer. Could easily be the case that he’s either doing the same as Noel in a few years or nothing at all.
