  1. You do not make a substitution for them to take a penalty with their first kick. You'd think this would have been drilled into the heads of managers after this summer. Utterly moronic.
  2. The difference a clinical striker makes! Immense performance from Mendy too. 3-0 doesn't reflect just how tough that game was.
  3. Well that's the game f**ked. Congrats on the ref for making it all about him.
  4. Utterly disgraceful the situation with the seats not being ready. First game of the season after a Champions League win and some of most dedicated fans can't see it. They should have reserved some regular seats the second it looked like it might not be finished in time. Leaves a real bitter taste in the mouth. Champion's League group stage tickets? It's rarely difficult to get those, in fact they generally have to do all sorts of offers and discounts to sell them anyway. They're rarely the most thrilling games and they're played at pretty awkward times. A lot of holders I know aren't fussed about attending those and would have infinitely preferred the first home game after 'normality' and a Champions League game.
  5. I think that's about the worst run of fixtures starting a season I can ever remember. Ouch.
  6. Since then I've also completed the Sub Zero expansion/semi-sequel. That was a huge disappointment, it's worse than the original in just about every way. Not quite sure why they felt the need to take a game that had a creepy sense of isolation, then decide the player character should be a talkative teenage girl who wisecracks like she's in a marvel film. You don't need any of the vehicles except to save time as you can swim even the deepest parts of the game with ease thanks to all the oxygen plants and bladder fish everywhere.
  7. Gave it another go.... Got hooked. Been playing it non stop and I've now completed it. The game becomes a whole lot more rewarding and less tedious once you've got a big base set up with all the tools you need. Also realised saving the game whenever you're at 'safe' spots means you don't have to deal with the frustration of losing vehicles.
  8. They've been carried hard by Bruno and received some very favourable VAR decisions at perfect times.
  9. In a penalty shootout of incredibly bad keeping, perhaps it was fitting the only save would be from a keeper's shot.
  10. Some terrible keeping in this shootout. 16 in a row scored...
  11. Bought Subnautica because I wanted something else like The Outer Wilds. Not really gelling with me. I like crafting games but the tiny inventory, everything needing batteries, all vehicles permanently destroyed if they take too much damage, food and drink... it takes any enjoyment out of the game having constant tedious busywork.
  12. I find it embarrassing we had to rely on Spurs. We've a team full of attacking players all hoping that someone else will step up and score.
  13. How the hell are we the team going in with 2 yellow cards after that? That aside. sh*t again loads of chances all of them taken weakly. Fast movement doesn't work against teams that stick 9 men in the box for most of the match.
  14. They consider Hoddle to be the main Chelsea pundit which is annoying. Joe Cole is becoming much more active, the hair transplant has done wonders for his career.
  15. VAR is good. The implementation is not. The whole "clear and obvious error" is not being implemented well. One week the ref will go over to a monitor and check a replay 10 times looking for contact before eventually changing their decision, the next week we get that farce with the penalty yesterday where in 5 seconds they decided it wasn't a clear an obvious error awarding a free kick the other way for a stone wall penalty. The way Offside lines are drawn is hopeless and shows a complete disregard for how margin of error works. It should be like Cricket where the decision has to be past a certain threshold or else it's "ref's decision"
  16. Resident Evil Village was very good, played it non-stop over the weekend. Blended together RE4 and RE7 really really well. Just wish it was longer than 10 hours. Definitely feel I got my money's worth playing it though, no filler and it was creative from start to finish.
  17. To injury prone and for the money they'd want for him, too old. Not that they'd ever sell to us anyway
  18. And Leicester will have one shot on target and score. It's nailed on at this point.
  19. We're f**king cursed. Everything about this screams "not going to be our day" again. And I'm just fed up of VAR going against us constantly.
  20. If that first goal hasn't confirmed the suspicions of people tuning into Women's club football for the first time, the scoreline certainly will have. This was heralded as a defining moment in the Women's game in England...
  21. Most important time of the season and he starts rotating the squad. Confidence will now be low for two must win games that we can't afford to rotate for. I'd rather tired legs with a confident mindset than the insane amount of pressure they must be under now.
