  1. Let's have a films thread.

    I and everyone of my star wars loving mates really disliked it. Leaving aside the geeky stuff like the messing up of the series lore, you have some really horrendous moments and scenes (Leia flying through space is actually worse than anything in the prequels) and important information is not revealed (how did Kylo get involved with Snoke? Why is the first order so much better equipped than the Republic forces?) Now you can wave some of this away as nitpicking but key to making TLJ just a bad movie is the whole Finn Space Casino plotline. It's awful, ultimately pointless and it takes up around a third of the movie. It's not like it was a short scene like the rubbish tentacle monster things in Force Awakens. It totally floors the movie and the numerous other terrible moments just add to it. I await the Red Letter Media review of this with baited breath. I really struggle to see how they'll manage to pull this back in episode 9.
  2. Some balance in the media ....

    There's another good article in the guardian https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2017/feb/24/claudio-ranieri-leicester-city-hardly-madness
  3. Matty James/Andy King

    There is definitely some overestimating of James here, I seem to recall him being not much more than a superior version of Andy King with no real stand out qualities. Even so views on his past ability is just opinion really. The key problem is surely that he has barely played for 16 months despite, if I remember, starting training again in December or January. Generally players who make a successful comeback from an acl injury do so in around 9 months. Much like Tunchev at this point he's unlikely to come back the same player.
  4. It's this lack of off field incidents that makes this pale in comparison to the NBC and Lineker docs. Football wise other than the Sunderland player kicking the ball in his own face everything I wanted was pretty much included. But off the field there's nothing, No madcap Ranieri press conference quotes, no mahrez winning the pfa award, no pundits making tits of themselves, no Boccelli. Surely some of these could have been included, there's just no context at all outside the games. Most criminally of all theres no footage from vardys house. Just straight from the man utd draw to the Everton game. It's still a great watch but it should have been so much more.
  5. It's ok and I was grinning through most of it. All the goals obviously and the majority of major moments from games are there. Maybe it's the nostalgia talking but I don't think it's as good as some of the 90s highlight videos. Feel it would have been better if a narrator was adding some context to the games and if they had used more SKY or BBC commentary as a lot of it seems to come from Foxes player and frankly it's radio roots are pretty apparent. Also I'm not sure what happened with the audio for Man City away but something is definitely off with it. Not watched the extras yet but they are pretty lengthy. Tragically Boccellis performance is not among them.

    Well frankly I'd rather shit in my hands and clap than support the Unwise Owls Spurs/Scouse international XI this summer so **** em and hope they go out asap. I'm following this guy's team!
  7. Release Clauses

    They are really uncommon for English clubs and there was exactly no mention or rumours of Kante having one when he was linked with clubs during the January window. It's media bs.
  8. What made you laugh (This season)

    Fuchs and his quite brilliant videos. Surely the most genuinely funny City player ever!
  9. England Squad

    I heard Wilshire has pulled out of the squad. Injured himself falling out of his chair when he saw he'd been included.
  10. Kante

    I've no idea whether tribal football is a reputable source but for what it's worth...
  11. For me at least, even more than lifting the trophy, this was the moment of the day. The image of all the flags going around the ground with that brilliant, beautiful music playing is something that will stay with me for the rest of my life.
  12. Morgan is GOD

    With the exception of the frankly world class Kante, Morgan has been our most consistent player this season and now for me definitively replaces Matt Elliott as this club's greatest ever defender. Love the man!
