  1. All ifs and buts I know, but if Ferrari matched Rosberg's strategy after the red flag, I am confident Nico would have had the pace to beat Vettel. The tactical error probably only cost them second to Lewis. The Merc is still at least a couple of tenths faster when all is equal, minimum. Their botchy start has made it look like the Ferrari's are closer to them than they actually are, to my eye. Alonso's crash was seriously scary. The worst I've seen for a while. The fact he was able to just slip out and walk away with little more than being winded was immense. Huge credit to the way these cars are designed. My man Roman taking points on the Haas debut was wonderful to see too. A bit fortunate that the strategy worked out, but still, outstanding stuff. I'm pleased they are able to compete with the midfield on pure pace as it is shows that new teams can get somewhere if they do it right.
  2. The Villain <3 Absolute love those collections of promo's Marty did. So much time for him.
  3. I wonder if anyone has changed there minds after tonights results :lol At this rate Chelsea can win the league!
  4. F*ck! You're right! TOMMY F*CKING END. Tommy End is f*cking legit. Never, ever been disappointed when watching him. Tommy End vs. BT Gunn is one of the best matches I've seen live.
  5. Yeah Kaylee has worked NXT before. She's been over in Japan recently too. Noam has been at it so long and is so good that while continuing to gain more and more experience around the world would no doubt do him good, I think you could stick him in anywhere, be it NXT or wherever and he would do well. Seems to me like the perfect fit for the Cruiserweight tournament.
  6. Guys like Big Dave and Damo do nout for me. Cant seem to get into these big guys whatsoever. Hard to explain, but whenever there on I'm just really not interested at all. However I am right there with you front and centre on Havoc and Noam, both have become to of my absolute favs. Especially Jimmy. When I first got into ICW I wasn't that sure about him and he quickly changed that around in the last couple of years with his heel turn, his Progress run and the ultimately his comeback as a babyface for ICW. All great stuff, I marked like a bitch watching online when his new music for ICW hit and he returned at the London show. Should have been there. As for Noam, he's just really, really great at wrestling. Simple as that really. Could watch him all day and anyone who knows me knows I'm about the furthest from a "workratez" guy as you can get. Another guy who I would love to see in the Cruiser thing or NXT is BT Gunn. A bit like Noam, I could just watch him wrestle forever. Book Noam vs. BT in a long running feud and I'd wet myself.
  7. I about had a brain aneurysm watching Sterling. So, so shite.
  8. Premier League Winners - Leicester City 2nd - Arsenal 3rd - Spurs 4th - Man City Relegated - 3rd last - Bournemouth 2nd last - Norwich Bottom - Aston Villa Champions League Winners - Barcelona Runners up - Bayern Munich Europe League Winners - Dortmund Runners up - Sevilla FA CUP Winners - Chelsea Runners up - Arsenal Championship Winners - Hull Runners up - Middlesborough Playoff Winners - Burnely For the first time, at this point I really do fancy Leicester to win it. No European football distractions, fewer games and a really solid run in. Next four games are West Brom, Watford, Newcastle and Palace, while teams around them have to play in Europe and each other. Could be almost home and hosed by then.
  9. Most open secret in football but I cannot deny I am not excited. Never been a Pep fan but he's as close to a bonafide star in the managerial game as you are going to get and to have him in my favourite league in the world is exciting. I also think it will create a fun summer as he is sure to have a strong budget to play with to bring his own guys in, which could have knock on effects all down the chain. Fun times ahead. Just Simione to Chelsea and Jose to United and we have a few dream duels right there.
  10. Past it and the right decision. He's on 200k a week. Suspect he would probably take a pay cut to stay but I would still move him on and get young blood in. Especially with the major regime change coming in the summer, Terry represents a by gone era a fresh start and clean break will be good for everyone involved.
  11. Agreed. The cat is well and truly out of the bag. It was fun to stay up and have a drink to while it lasted, but the ship has sailed. Also, United, City and Chelsea aren't going to be doing business when they are all likely to have brand new regime's in place come the summer, and Arsenal are Arsenal. So really, it was painfully clear that none of the big clubs would be doing any sort of business today, so they whole thing was just blah right from the start.
  12. Truly spectacular dedication to the burial of Randy Orton. Bravo.
  13. AJ stole the show for me. Proper marked out for him coming in as early as 3 to make his debut. Totally down for him vs. Kev. Overall it was a decent show and I though the Rumble match itself was pretty good aside from the outcome. I would have rather just see Roman overcome all the odds rather than HHH winning. Neither scenario is what I would have liked, but being presented with a choice of the two, I'd have taken the former. The only thing I think they missed a trick with is not having Joe come in and have something with AJ. That would've been cool. Oh and I thought Brock's elimination was a bit underwhelming. By all means have the Wyatt's eliminate him. But he should have had a mega rage at ringside and just go back into the ring and get Bray and destroy him. Taker/Maven style. I would also say is I think that might have been the last chance for Daniel Bryan. If they weren't prepared to clear him for the Rumble when he has been, for all intents and purposes, more or less healthy by every doctor other than WWE's standards, then I don't think they will ever clear him.
  14. Caught some TNA on Challenge tonight. Its not actually been that bad, admittedly I've only seen about half a show, but it seems to be, more or less, making sense. c Clearly lacks star power though. Althought Ken Anderson is still doing the asshole gimmick five years after I last watched, when he was still doing it. Lol.
  15. Everything except Rugby. Literally everything. In no particular order: Football Cricket Darts Formula 1 Snooker Golf American Football A little bit Tennis (I only really turn up for the big games)
  16. He was the first person to declare that he had entered, not that he was the number 1 entrance. They tried to stress that at the time, but its understandable that it was a bit confusing. First Raw I've watched for a while, it wasn't bad. I actually thought Jericho was more or less on good form all night. I guess having not seen for a while it made his same old material pretty decent. Heyman was absolutely great on the mic too, but thats a given. I liked the brawl at the end. I love Lesnar going after both Reigns and the League of Nations. Heel or Face, doesn't matter, you get in Brock's way, you gonna die bitch. Its exactly how he should be booked. I love Bray and I'm glad he's being put in a strong position going into the Rumble, but I wish he would have been booked a lot better over the last year or so. He's been booked so poorly at times that it makes it tough to suddenly believe him as a viable contender and a threat to the beast that is Brock and the champion Reigns, who by the way, is still god damn awful on the stick as a babyface. Jericho carried that opening segment, if it was left to Reigns and Sheamus it would have died on its arse. Elsewhere, I enjoyed the Divas division. Becky Lynch impressed me alot with both her speaking segments and Charlotte is about 200% better as a heel with Ric as her old man, heel manager. They sold that match to me, having not seen any of their feud up until now, I want to see their match at the Rumble based on only a couple of segments. I'm into it, so good job by all. Also, the New Day rocked. Obviously.
  17. Austin is a perfect fit for Southampton and £4m is a relative bargain in the current market. He'll score goals wherever he goes.
  18. Dire game. One of the worst I've seen in a while, but a huge three points for United and LVG, they were definitely second best. Four goals recently for Rooney too, he's starting to find his scoring boots a little. Still think they'll finish in the top four. They aren't pretty but they do get results when playing badly alot of the time.
  19. Sunderland are still massively odds on to go down. I think there is a huge chance they'll stay up, Big Sam doesnt do relegation and most importantly they have goals in that side with Defoe and others up top. Think the bookies are writing them off far too soon and I wouldn't be against having a little bet on them to stay up. At this stage I think Swansea could be in serious peril to go down with Villa, and then maybe perhaps Norwich. Just have this hunch the North East teams are gonna be ok.
  20. I caught a little of the BDO. Not much mind, but a little. Scotty is easliy the class player in the code, he won his semi 6-1 and the final 7-1 for goodness sake! I'm desperate for him to have a crack at the PDC but it looks like now that will probably never happen. Some big names in that list at q-school. Just goes to show the standard of darts the younger guys coming up are producing, that it is forcing a lot of these older guys, who have been perhaps resting on their laurels a little bit, off the tour.
  21. Definitely a strange move. I mean, they are desperate for cover due to injuries and at least he's English, knows the league etc, but yeah, he hasn't be very good at all the last couple of years. I heard yesterday that Liverpool are signing Joel Matip from Schalke on a bosman in the summer. If that goes ahead that is very nice business by Klopp. He would immediately become their best holding midfielder/centre back and to get him for free would be top stuff.
  22. Kind of hope Swansea go down just for being a shambles in sacking Monk and not actually having any idea what to do after that. How you can sack him and just replace him with a caretaker until the end of the season who has no managerial experience while EPL safety is on the line boggles my mind. Would be lovely karma if they went down.
  23. Antione Griezman will cost £50m not a throwaway £10m on a punt buy. I wouldn't have though they'd have that money kicking about in January, and with all due respect, won't be leaving Atletico, who are top of La Liga, for a team who isn't guaranteed (or all that likely in my opinion) to be playing Champions League football next season.
  24. Darts from gods. Just ridiculous, Aidy vs. Gary tomorrow. Should be an absolute perler. Bring it on.
