  1. Next City Manager?

    Feel sorry for whoever gets the job - with Rudkin in charge of recruitment it will be like trying to cook a vegetarian banquet on Ready Steady Cook, only to find out some jumped up failed youth coach has brought a bag of ingredients containing 8 packs of Richmond sausages and a multipack of Monster Munch.
  2. Science Quiz

    I just completed this quiz. My Score 30/100 My Time 161 seconds  

    I loved the pre-PS3 Gran Turismo games, and I enjoyed the Forza games on the 360 (never had a PS3). I'm back on PS4 for this gen, was looking forward to GT, mainly for the tracklist, as the GT games always had a better list of tracks than Forza. Just googled the tracks, and it looks like a very scant list. No Monaco, Fuji Speedway, Silverstone, or much of anything beyond the ever present Nurburgring. https://www.carthrottle.com/post/here-are-the-full-track-and-car-lists-for-gran-turismo-sport/ Alsace – Village Alsace – Village II Autodrome Lago Maggiore – GP Autodrome Lago Maggiore – GP II Autódromo De Interlagos Blue Moon Bay Speedway Blue Moon Bay Speedway II Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit Brands Hatch Indy Circuit Broad Bean Raceway Broad Bean Raceway II Colorado Springs – Lake Colorado Springs – Lake II Dragon Trail – Seaside Dragon Trail – Seaside II Fishermans Ranch Fishermans Ranch II KYOTO DRIVING PARK – MIYABI KYOTO DRIVING PARK – YAMAGIWA KYOTO DRIVING PARK – YAMAGIWA II Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit Northern Isle Speedway Northern Isle Speedway – Infield Nürburgring 24h Nürburgring GP Nürburgring Nordschleife Nürburgring Nordschleife Tourist Layout Sardegna – Windmills Sardegna – Windmills II Suzuka Circuit Suzuka Circuit East Course Tokyo Expressway – Central Inner Loop Tokyo Expressway – Central Outer Loop Tokyo Expressway – East Inner Loop Tokyo Expressway – East Outer Loop Willow Springs International Raceway: Big Willow Willow Springs International Raceway: Horse Thief Mile Willow Springs International Raceway: Horse Thief Mile II Willow Springs International Raceway: Streets of Willow Springs Willow Springs International Raceway: Streets of Willow Springs II
  4. Can't have both games on Christmas Eve, the traffic would be an absolute nightmare. It's already bad on Christmas Eve because of the last minute shoppers, when you add in all the Tigers fans driving in their Range Rovers from their homes in Nottinghamshire, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire, plus all the Man U fans driving up from London and Torquay, and it's going to be an absolute cluster****, especially when you consider our roads are so bad (#thankssoulsby) that it only takes one broken down van on the ring road to basically shut down the entire city centre for a morning.

  7. Is Shakespeare the right man for the job?

    Oops. Sorry, didn't read enough posts back. I couldn't agree more, Stoke were quite flukey in both those games, and demonstrated that by getting pantsed against Chelsea.

    See Stoke their result against Chelsea.
  10. The Tinder Thread

    Worrying stuff. Tinder holding 800 pages of info on the author of that article, including details of when she was talking to 16 matches concurrently. God knows how much info they hold on me. Oh yeah, no need to panic
  11. Is Shakespeare the right man for the job?

    And in Shakespeare's matches so far, he has played them 10 times out of 19, more than 50% of the time, and he has one league win against Liverpool (plus a cup win against them), so it's not zero points every time. If you extrapolate the points from Shakey's full run over a season, you get a 54 point season - not a relegation scrap, even with that poor form against top teams. That's despite those appalling midfield and centre back shortages he's had to endure, plus effectively sacrificing 2 out of those 19 games (10%) to prioritise the Champions League last season. There's no point me talking about this any more though. People have made up their minds.
  12. Is Shakespeare the right man for the job?

    I'd like to see him given at least half the season - that's a fair shake, playing all teams once, and gives a good idea of how the whole season would pan out. All things are relative though, if we start getting thrashed by teams like Swansea or Southampton, as Ranieri was doing, then he'd obviously have to go. If performances are generally good and we are slightly unlucky in a few games then he deserves a bit of patience.

    Standard Bayern behaviour . Is it good? Is it in the Bundesliga? Buy it, eliminate competition, stroll to title again.

    Wahey, so you've once again expanded the window to include the maximum number of losses. Did you know that if you ignore all the games he has won, then he has won no games? Terrible stats, what a loser. Can't you get it through your head, that his stats are being skewed by a small window of games which are disproportionately made up of games against Top 4/5 teams, the most difficult teams in the league to play against. Lets talk his full league record: P 19 W 8 D 3 L 8 The losses are against Man City, Man Utd, Spurs, Arsenal x 2, Liverpool, Everton and Chelsea. These are difficult fixtures, even the top clubs don't get out of fixtures like that without losing a few games. Klopp played Man City and got absolutely spanked,Arsenal got thrashed by Liverpool, Chelsea beat Spurs. He has not lost a single game against opposition outside of that traditional "top 7" group. Shakey will start picking up wins, when we start playing more of the teams from the bottom end of the table. We have been dealt the hardest set of opening fixtures out of any of the Premier League teams, and despite that, we are still not bottom of the table. Our form will recover, we only have Man City and Tottenham left to play in the first half of the season, every other fixture is against easier teams than what we have faced so far.
  15. Is Shakespeare the right man for the job?

    I win in 9 does look bad. Wonder why you picked 9 games as the sample size? Oh, because if you'd chose 11, then you would have have to include 2 more wins. The 3 games from the end of last season also include a 1-1 draw against Bournemouth where we had a goal that was a foot onside disallowed, and a 2-1 loss away to Man City where Raheem Sterling scored an offside goal that was incorrectly given, and Bobby Madley managed to cleverly see a double hit penalty whilst completely not seeing any encroachment into the box by defenders before the ball was hit. If the officials had done their jobs properly, we could have won both of those matches. Can we not forget that we played all 3 of those games with a central defence of Benolouane and Fuchs, as Rudkin's botched recruitment meant we had completely run out of centre backs as well? A theme that is being repeated this season as well, as we are down to our last few central midfielders AGAIN, for the second season in a row. We did try and start yesterday's game by attacking, we had the first real chance when Vardy got in behind, and Mahrez volleyed over on the rebound. Liverpool were trying their best to force us back as well, we weren't passively retreating into our own box, we were forced back by good attacking play and individual defensive mistakes. Despite how "defensive" our first half was, we still scored a goal, had another disallowed, and had 2 more chances for Okazaki (the botched Mignolet clearance and the header), plus the Vardy/Mahrez chance. Here are the whole of last season's Shakey results. The guy didn't just have a "new manager bounce", he had the best run of form by a new English prem manager ever, figures that weren't far off the likes of Guardiola. He got thrashed in 1 match by Spurs, in which we were fielding a makeshift central defence and midfield due to injuries, and the thrashing was largely down to sacrificing one of his 3 centre backs to try and mount a comeback by bringing Gray on (incidentally, the kind of change that all the Armchair managers on here were saying was a massive mistake when he didn't make it in the Atletico Madrid game). The form tailed off a bit during the crowded period when we had the Champions League tie to prepare for, when we rested players to give ourselves a good chance, which again, which is what most people wanted at the time. Still, should have beaten Palace, which we would have done if Benteke's foul on Benny had been spotted on the equaliser. Other that that, he beat all the teams you would expect to beat, and only lost narrowly to the big teams (Spurs excepted). That has carried on to this season, we haven't been humiliated at all, and were not far away from getting something from all the big teams we have faced. Our performance against Huddersfield was poor, but we are the only team to score against them at home (and along with the Hammers, the only teams to score against them at all), and we still took a point away, and if Vardy had got that open goal, could have had all 3. 26.
