  1. As Greylien states above the stakes are so high in this day and age we’re talking about astronomic sums of money and as it stands this enthralling Premier League title race could come down to some tight rack of the eye offside desicion and that would be a dreadful way for it to end. The Premier League however have probably gone about it the correct way allowing the other European leagues sort of iron out the issues before they really implement it. The drama at the Etihad the other night was fantastic tv and thanks to the technology at the stadium it wasn’t really that confusing for fans who were attending the game. But if you happen to be at a stadium that maybe isn’t quite as luxurious then it can maybe a issue, and it’s really important that you don’t confuse the fans who are in the ground.
  2. Unfortunately my mothers a bit of a hoarder. Not to the extent that you see on these channel 5 documentary’s but it’s enougth for me to dislike going round to see her at her home. My girlfriend works in the community which basically entails making people whom are on their death bed comfortable in their final days. Hoarding is something that she encounters fairly often from what I can gather, maybe a generational thing.
  3. Went last night and not afraid to admit I had a tear in my eye at one or two times. Last time I left a theatre feeling anything like this was for Return of the King but the scale of this saga is so much bigger. Not sure how they follow this, they will of course but I’m really not sure how.
  4. AJ is the sort of guy who will always be nursing some sort of injury Heading into his last Wrestle Kingdom where he also wrestled Nakamura there was real concern that he wouldn't make the match due to his constant back niggles. In the end he was fine, put on a 4 and half star match and made his WWE debut less than a month later.
  5. Just watched night 1 before I head over to Blackpool this evening. The show was really fun, and the crowd were'nt overly interested in taking over the show. Everyone was given time to show off their skills heels and faces were easily defined. The venue looked fantastic McGuiness and Cole were great on comms. Even the attack on Gradwell from Dunne at the end worked so well setting up the dastardly heel v hometown face at tonight's show. Looking forward to night 2 a lot.
  6. I can definetly see some sort of link up with Progress. Along with Evolve they seem to be WWE's indies of choice. Rev Pro have some sort of working relationship with NJPW anyway. So it really is a exciting time to be a Wrestling fan in the U.K.
  7. Not sure I've got time for all the Rumbles in the next couple of weeks but did watch 1990 the other afternoon. Going to make sure that I watch Rumble 1997 over the weekend though given the venue of this years event.
  8. For what it's worth Meltzer gave Okada v Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 11 yesterday 6 Stars.
  9. There had been murmurs of something going down. The press conference itself was called last week and was thought it was going to be some sort of talent deal with ITV trying to lock down talent in the chance that WOS does well. WWE have obviously seen the reach that ITV has compared to Sky ad decided to retaliate pretty early for fear of losing a chunk of the market share in their 2nd biggest market. It's great for the talent involved and the Feds that are on side.
  10. Asuka is probably one of the best wrestlers in the company full stop regardless of gender. One of the things that hit me during Breaking Ground was one part where they were doing some "classroom" work. Everyone was paying attention but Askua was there not only paying attention but making notes as she went on. She's a student of the profession despite already having a pretty accomplished career I. Japan. She's only kept in NXT to help nature the younger talent. Frustrating for her but you can see the reasonings. Really not a fan of Charlotte at all. I do like Banks, and Emma or whatever she's called these days is vastly underrated.
  11. Next years Royal Rumble will be at the Alamodome in San Antonio 20 years since it was held there last with a gate of 60,000+ Must be confident of being able to shift a lot of tickets for this one.
  12. Looking forward to hearing this at the Barclays Center this weekend. Very good chance the whole arena could break out into song.
  13. Not only is Roodes NXT theme a great Wrestling theme. But its also a great piece of music to start your day to. Its also a gtret piece of music to go to the gym with. its also great piece of music to listen to post sex. its also a great piece of music to listen to once youve just split up with your boyfriend/girlfriend with. I'd go as far to say there is no task no big or small that this piece of music doesn't go with. I want it played at my funeral!!
  14. I believe he was asked to take it on a interim basis. He turned it down. The u21's did really well winning in Toloun this Summer. They did fail miserably in the Euro U21's last summer though and he had some pretty heavy hitters along for the ride.
  15. Unfair to judge the Justice League trailer to be fair. It was more of a show reel of what they've gotten so far. The films not out until November 2017 and is still in the early stages of shooting. I'm really surprised we saw anything to be fair. The highlights of what was shown was definetly the Wonder Woman trailer. On the Marvel side they showed some Guardians 2 footage and released a new Doctor Strange trailer. They also confirmed Micheal Keaton and Robert Downey Junior for Spider-Man Homecoming as well as Brie Larson as Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel. We also got a news on a 3rd season of Daredevil a Luke Cage trailer and Defenders teaser. The BBC also showcased a Sherlock season trailer, which is neat.

    Gotham - TV show

    Yeah I'd also put the 2 Netflix Marvel Shows that we've had so far ahead of this. Gotham does a lot right but it's let down by shoddy writing and could be probably do with being cut from its 20+ episode runs down to something more manageable.

    Gotham - TV show

    Found the 1st half of season 2 really really good. But felt it tapered off after the mid season break. It's probably one of the weaker "comic book" shows though.
  18. That I agree with but unfortunately their seems as if to be this expectation that the National Team manager has to be English. When the RFU and ECB were looking for new first team coaches in 2015 they went out and got the best men for the job ho both turned out to be Australians. What followed was a Ashes victory and test series victory in South Africa for the Cricket side. For the Rugby side we saw a Six Nations Grand Slam, test victory over Wales and a 3-0 whitewash of Australia down under. They were able to go get the right men for the job regardless of his nationality. Be it the in comparison failures of Ericsson and Capello the FA seem reluctant to go down that route right now. Ideally they would of been able to bring in someone like Klopp who prefers to do his management on the training pitch whilst striking a rapport with the fans. Which is a rarerity in Club football these days where most of managers responsibility seemto be managing the transfer windows and trying to temper fans expectations.
  19. They've also brought in Schurrle from Wolfsburg. I'd still expect someone to at least test them in regards to Aubmayang before August is out.
  20. Yet Hodgson had managed Liverpool and Inter Milan and Eriksson had managed Benfica, Roma, Lazio, Sampdoria and Fiorentina. All minnows of the game compared to the likes of Bolton, Blackburn, Blackpool and Notts County of course.
  21. It was a cushy job for Delia but the support never really took to him.
  22. Some day for Richie De Laet, played enough games for Leicester to qualify for a Premier League winners medal, but also picks up a Championship runners up medal with Middlesbrough.
  23. I enjoyed the show especially the main event and the Zayn/Owens/Miz/Cesaro stuff. The ending to the Women's match actually made me angry enough to swear at my TV. They're giving the women time to be able to tell a story now and these 2 women have had some really good matches recently. But for them to rake over the coals with a bullshit ending like this is just plain terrible.
