    The dieting thread

    You can't target fat loss in a specific area unfortunately. Where it's stored and where it comes off first is entirely genetic. All you can do is remain in a calorie deficit (which might need recalculating at a lower weight) and the weight will continue to drop. Resistance training and consuming adequate protein will help preserve muscle. You don't have to be chucking around massive weights at the gym - body-weight exercises or yoga are good alternatives. I'm down just over three stone in total now - it does get a lot harder the less you weigh! You've just got to stick with it and accept slower losses.

    Has Anyone Booked a Holiday Yet?

    Please report back when you've been as I'm heading there to stay with a mate for two weeks in July
  3. Despite a relatively short stint at the club, a bona fide Leicester legend. Scored some of my favourite goals of the title campaign and generally just seems to have life sorted. What a bloke.

    Lets have a (Non Sport) Podcast thread

    The Peacock and Gamble Fubar Podcast is great. Funny, long, and their interaction has improved over the years in my opinion. If you like this, the great thing is it will open the door to their large back catalogue of podcasts from different iterations which will keep you going for ages. Which leads me to... The Parapod. Ray Peacock (off of Peacock and Gamble) and Barry Dodds discuss paranormal stories. Ray is the questioning sceptic and Barry the excitable fool. Quite a bit like the parts of the old Ricky Gervais podcasts when Karl Pilkington used to tell his far-fetched stories, although with less bullying. Really picks up in season 2 - Barry's manic laugh is amazing. Off Menu Podcast. Ed Gamble (off of Peacock and Gamble) and James Acaster invite a guest on to discuss their dream meal, choosing a starter, main, side, and dessert. It's a fun concept to think about and the reasons each guest gives are often interesting and/or amusing. Beef & Dairy Network Podcast. A scripted show performed like it's actually an informational podcast centred around the Beef & Dairy industry. A bit different, but worth persevering with for a few episodes to see if it sticks. The Horne Section Podcast. An absolute must if you like Alex Horne's shtick on Taskmaster. He performs musical comedy with his band and involves a new guest each week. Much funnier and more entertaining than that description sounds. If you don't have the Thick & Creamy song stuck in your head after a few listens there is something wrong with you.

    What grinds my gears...

    Like Todge, I avoid any of the pre-match, half-time, and post-match analysis. It's never particularity insightful and frequently infuriating. I don't need anyone else to tell me what to think about the match, and teh experience is more enjoyable for it. Anything that is worthwhile can be found on social media afterwards. If I've got mates round, we pretty much perfectly time a game of Fifa during the half-time time break

    Puel In / Out Poll (12/01/19)

    Wagner quit because of the stress/pressure. Absolutely no way he comes here where that aspect will be far greater than he experienced at Huddersfield.

    What Game Are You Playing At The Moment ?

    I just picked up Doom in the recent PSN sale and although I'm not very far in it's well worth £5 of anyone's money. Nothing particularly new or inventive but jolly good fun nonetheless and expands on the old Doom lore. Currently flitting between that, Hollow Knight, Batman Arkham Asylum, and LA Noire - an odd mix but I can't seem to settle on a game since finishing the Witcher III!

    Puel In / Out Poll (12/01/19)

    Despite the results, the recent performances have really encouraged me that he knows where our issues lie and is moving the team in the right direction. For the first time I can say I'd definitely like to see him stay beyond this season. Whether or not he can outlast the somewhat toxic environment that some fans (and possibly players?) have created is yet to be seen.

    Spurs Away Post Match 3-1

    I thought we played well today and on another day we'd have stuffed em. I thought Maddison was poor and has not been at his best for a while. Tielemans showed him how to play with creative purpose and accuracy - best debut I've seen in ages. In the next game I'd consider going with a front four of Vardy, Barnes, Gray, and Ghezzal who I thought had his best all round 90 mins in a city shirt. Maguire and even Ricardo also not quite at the races recently, but today's performance does illustrate we're only a couple of key signings off a really good team. I've always been fairly ambivalent about Puel, but more leaning towards giving him as much time as possible unless we're dragged towards relegation. Oddly enough though it's been the last couple of losses that have made me want to see what he can deliver with this group of players beyond this season.

    Brighton and Burnley both playing hoofball toss. Lovely finish by Chris Wood though after a mistake from Dunk. Heaton has made a couple of really good saves - amazing how much better they've been since he's come back into the team.

    Looks like the wind is going to have an impact on the games today. Absolutely pathetic defending from Scotland there after a decent start.

    Absolutely superb piece from Daniel Storey on football hysteria: https://www.football365.com/news/the-2018-19-premier-league-title-race-expose-the-fraud The passage that sums it up best: "Even away from the worst elements of supporters, a general mania exists that is enough to give you a migraine. Melodrama and hysteria now come as standard as clubs and managers lurch between crisis and glory like a runaway train and supporters delight in both according to their loyalties. No longer is it enough to wait until the end of the season for medals and trinkets to be handed out. Why bother, when you can scream and scream and scream until you’re sick after every match. And you can."

    England played like the last 12 months didn't happen. Very much looking forward to the rest of the tournament!
