  1. The 'Jose intentionally gets sacked' theory is false because a key dependency (how well LVG might do last season) was wholly out of Jose's control. Jose didn't know that LVG would under-perform, lose the dressing room, etc. And funnily enough, he was worse than LVG on both counts.
  2. RDM did lead CFC to a FA Cup and CL trophy. Pretty impressive by my books.
  3. Apparently, he doesn't own his name??
  4. Something is wrong when a MANAGER'S image rights are an issue. At all.
  5. I like Jose. Can't help it to be honest as the bloke has charisma in buckets. However, whatever's happened he's now gunning for CFC, City, us, etc and I think he'll do so single-mindedly. I think he'll put sentiment about CFC behind him except, tbh, where he can use it to sow doubt before matches, etc. I get the connection that Shedenders have with JM but, respectfully, he has set out for himself and is now at the helm of a side that a lot of us dislike a lot. He'll commit to Utd fully and, in that sense, what's done is done and a new situation, and JM as an adversary, faces us all.
  6. I was checking the BBC re. tonight's games and this was their headline: http://m.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/35806578 I am a bit surprised that he's been charged by the FA with Improper Conduct but I need to learn more about the charge.
  7. Fwiw, I'm impressed by Willian. He's worked hard, and shown commitment, this season and is a real handful when he's on his game. Pretty impressive (the poaching aside) :-)
  8. I've thought that today's event might happen for about one week. That said, it is a shock. In all honesty, the turnaround in CFC's fortunes is one of the biggest surprises in football in my lifetime. I still can't get my head around it. I am sorry that Jose has gone. I'm sorry for you chaps too as I know he meant and means a lot to most of you.
  9. I'm pretty sure you'll like it Teritus. It was very enjoyable.
  10. Slow West. A western with Michael Fassbender and Kodi Smit-McPhee. It is a gripping story and a beautiful film aesthetically. The basic story is that the daughter of a Scottish crofter emigrates to the USA in 1870. McPhee, the son of the local landowner and enamoured of the girl (Rose) follows her. As he moves Westwards, he is joined by Fassbender who he pays to see him safely to Rose. However, Fassbender (and others) have their own reasons for wanting to find Rose. It's very good and an untypical Western.
  11. To be honest, that's a good point. I hadn't thought of it that way before but he must have been that age.
  12. I suppose it could seem that JT is commenting negatively about what one might call 'journeyman' players. Savage didn't have a bad career as such. He gained a reputation as a dirty player and was and is a self-publicist. As a pundit, he's honest and he'd probably accept that players he criticises are not always going to take it.
  13. Just watched Terry's part of the presser. Brutal and honest but Savage dishes it out so he has to take it. The journalists laughing proves Terry's point.
  14. ^ Film recommendations are tricky but 'Anatomy of a Murder' (1959) is very good. It's mainly courtroom-based and James Stewart is very impressive. 'Great Expectations' with John Mills, Valerie Hobson and Alec Guiness is excellent and atmospheric, if you don't mind Charles Dickens. 'The Third Man' with Orson Welles, Trevor Howard and Bernard Lee is crime-based and compelling. It's a notably stylish film in making good use of (then new) camera angles, lighting and shadow etc. Mean girls is very good however. :-)
  15. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is very good imo.
  16. Damn. Sorry...my mistake :-( (He's only in the film for about 5 mins too...)
  17. Too true, sadly. I thought it was just bearable until Jim Carrey's character died. After that it was dreadful.
  18. I hope it's good. My concerns are mainly based on the trailer - it is pretty thin and short. Perhaps there'll be longer trails later on? I'm not hopeful though, fwiw. I think your idea of keeping the concept of the original series but with newer characters is a good one.
  19. Christ. I'd forgotten that film... I don't know why they bother to remake something that's v good anyway.
  20. Well, that looks sh*t tbh. Please leave classics alone!!!!!
  21. I liked Chappie. It did lose its way a bit in the middle as you say. I did not see the end coming at all (until just before) so that was good. I liked the actor who played Chappie's creator. A strong performance as he could easily have turned in a lazy depiction of a 'geek'.
  22. The New World; The Big Country; Chisum; A Bridge Too Far; The Dambusters; Zulu (farsands of 'em).
  23. It was. It was a tough watch but I'm glad you saw it; it was emotional at the end.
  24. Just watched 'Kajaki' on DVD. It is a new UK war film about what happened to a group of soldiers guarding the Kajaki dam in Afghanistan in 2006. It is a very impressive film; quite different from your average US war film (I don't mean that in a negative way about more usual war films) and it really brought home what our soldiers sometimes endure on our collective behalf. Recommended.
  25. White House Down. I don't know what I'd have thought of the film if I'd seen it without first seeing 'Olympus Has Fallen'. It was a good watch but a 6 or 7 out of ten.
