  1. What was the last film you watched?

    guardians of the galaxy. great film
  2. Stock Market Investing

    Hmmm so where do I start? Can osmeone link me some content to watch. I have a steady income and I'd like to take advantage of it. I'm getting around £9-10k/month gross, and in my job I can sometimes have up to 3-4 hours a day free (in which I'd like to study another means to investing my money). The tax at the moment is really killing off my salary so I'd like to invest where I can.
  3. dumebells on balance imo are better. easier to target and fix imbalance issues, if used correctly activate core just as well, better more natural ROM, etc.etc. legs day is tricky because getting dumbells heavy enough is really hard. legs day: dumbell stiff leg deadlifts goblet squats with dumbell lunges with dumbell hip thrusts (kinda need a barbell or very heavy dumbells) leg press leg curls leg extensions
  4. sure rei. Chest: DB Flat press DB Incline Press DB flys incline DB Flys flat Back: DB rows DB Rows with your chest against the bench at an incling, keeping your arms close to your torso to mimic a T-Bar row DB upper back rows (pulling from your rear delt) DB single arm cleans (godly excercise for mobility and power and function) Pullups Reverse grip pullups DB lat pullovers Shoulders DB shoulder press DB Shrugs DB rear delt flys DB lateral raises Arms DB hammer curls DB curls normal DB concentration curls DB tricep extensions over head DB kickbacks Dips This is as long as you have heavyish dumbells. if you're stuck with only <20kg dumbells, life is a bit more complicated from a back + chest perspective.
  5. Nintendo Switch (new console)

    yup you are pretty much right. then if you factor in portable skyrim etc. it becomes ridiculous for people like me who can't afford time infront of the TV a lot. I've sunk 10+ hours into cold steel 2 at work. if i was to play it on PS3, i don't think i'd ever complete it. Once a proper Fire Emblem game comes out (hopefully without the cashgrabbing which fates did) plus Portable Pokemon, it will literally explode. I want to buy Nintendo stock simply for that. This isn't even factoring in the inevitable Super Smash Brothers and Mario Kart which will come in the next few years. Third party wise I'm still comfortably worried tho. Its sad bigger games have got dumped (dark souls 3, kingdom hearts 3, ff 15). I honestly thought switch might've gotten some form of <720p version of these games. It would have been VERY tempting given the portable aspect to actually complete bigger longer games. I kind of can't wait for the 3DS to die so Nintendo can pump ALL their resources into the switch. I think the loss of the two screens might be a bit of a pain tho in keeping exclusive 3DS franchises exclusive as its not a simple case of "why not" port these titles to bigger consoles.
  6. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    its the INCONSISTENCY thats the issue. we see similar challenges week in, week out in the middle of the park go unpunished if the contact isn't as severe or there.
  7. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    i'd actually go as far to say our defence is so bad that once we go down to 10-men, we are most likely to lose/concede. I think we're also a team who really need 2 goal cushions.
  8. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    idk. the guys head was quite low. i really think its a 50/50 decision given how the english game is refereed. I think in the true laws of the game (and how its played in spain + italy + france) thats a red card. However in the english game in the middle of the park with the midfielder not coming away with an injury, its a caution/yellow. the inconsistency and leniance in refereeing in the premier league is honestly a shitty excuse for "best league in the world". it leads to a more physical and less technical league. Its the reason why english teams fail in the champions league, england fail in the world cups etc imo. I think we were far too wasteful before the first goal. Also our defence is simply a fucking joke. Our whole back 4 apart from Matip wouldn't be a second string back 4 for any of the top 4 teams. Klopp messed up not playing Coutinho. With him in our side I think we would have tidied up this fixture within the 30 minutes honestly because city were there for the taking with their defence as much of a shambles as ours. I really really dont like can/wijnaldum/hendo together. I really would much prefer 2 out of the 3 of them and soemone with a bit more cutting edge to compliment them. our front 3 looked electric and loved them as usual. TBH I saw us losing this game anyway due to TAA. He looked so fucking nervous, i saw him inevitably fucking up anyway. u cant win the league with a defence like this and looking at the expected top 6's sides, I think we will really struggle to top 4 this season with this defence too which is scary and sad as our attack is just so ridiculous.
  9. what are your top 10 tv shows? excluding anime The Wire Narcos breaking bad House Its always sunny in philadelphia Curb your enthusiasm South Park game of thrones stranger things west world prison break s1-2/friends/spartacus s01/arrested development/house of cards (lacks bingeworthiness)/nip tuck (lacks consistency and quality) narrowly miss out quite liked modern family/community but feel phialdelphia + curb hit the spot more. ive watched daredevil s1 + better call saul s1 and thought they were overrated but good. given the introduction of netflix, i feel like our lists can all vastly differ now. combined with the plethora of pre-netflix originals. currently watching narcos episode 5 s01, think it will break my top 10. its like a mafia film but over 2 seasons, insane quality.

    https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2016/06/3-reasons-why-littlefinger-is-way-worse-in-the-sho.html https://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2017/08/29/why-that-game-of-thrones-death-you-loved-was-actually-a-tragedy/#4662517c7ace http://www.tvguide.com/news/game-of-thrones-littlefinger-death-books-george-r-r-martin/ its pretty obv to me LF and varys are far too intelligent, intricate and subtle for the TV producers to properly deal with. and once they were left with those two in their own hands, it was always going to end poorly.
  11. Game of Thrones TV Show

    We watch different shows. If you can't see the difference between LF S01 and the sorry excuse for LF now then there is no point further discussing. They didn't outsmart shit. I still don't see what in the world the siblings did that was clever. Sansa just decided to out him infront of everyone for what she already knew. Arya and her had a little squabble behind closed doors, Bran is sapped of all personality which makes the revelation that he is the night king even less fulfilling when it eventually drops and he dies. ---------------------------- The complaint of 90% boring 10% cool stuff is fucking retarded and really draws the line between viewers and their tastes. These are the same people which probably find The Wire boring. Give them a fire breathing blue dragon and they're happy with whatever BS is thrown their way. Thats fine, everyone has their tastes but its not when GOT has been for its first few years.
  12. Game of Thrones TV Show

    RIP Little finger and Lord Varys They've been dead since the show ran out of book content. LF converted from political mastermind who a deep sinister love for Stark women to creepyuncle2k17
  13. Game of Thrones TV Show

    Little finger is one of my biggest annoyances. I really thought he'd do something huge and everything he was doing behind the scenes was leading up to it. Instead he ended up just being a slimey guy taking advantage of children across the land and having a specifically soft spot for sansa. Jamie I agree is BORING as hell and I agree totally on Cersei too. S01/S02/S03 alluded to a lot of characters having the potential to have MUCH more of an impact on the plot. However its kind of turned into the Daenarys and John Snow show (versus the Night King). No doubt its fan fiction and still good fan fiction with a huge budget. At this point, I no longer care who gets the throne. I expect some cheesy ass ending. John Snow will either get the throne but more likely die a heroic sacrifice with some stupid plot twist that him or Bran are the Night King through some weird GOT logic. They'll probably face off in some shit sword fight which will suck because NK has just shown some ridiculous magic/strength to down a dragon with one javelin. Still not sure if I'd be completely surprised if the GOT writers just gave John Snow Super Saiyan Blue. Also Bran's change in personality has really made him a lot less endearing. Its as if his personality has been sapped from him. Arya's recent personality transplant is also quite sad. She was a real survivor before, now shes just a bit pig headed and... well weird.
  14. Game of Thrones TV Show

    what main plot points? they used possibly shittest dumbest methods to give nk a dragon and kill lf. my friends from work told me got is like mcdonalds now... full of shit but tastes so god damn good and i kinda agree with them.,
  15. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    I agree. If Mahrez is available for anywhere near the quoted prices (Wtf 45 m???) then he is a STEAL and match winner. I'm thinking a slight upgrade on nani in regards to that match winning squad player winger who you know has the potential to be a world beater if they get a bit of consistency. Tbh I think only his attitude last season has stopped him from earning a big move to a huge club.
  16. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    way way way easier said than done. what you're explaining is tactically much harder to do than you're saying. in an IDEAL world every defense would love to work like that and every offside trap would also work in tandem and every CB pairing would have one closing down, one covering space but you need to make compromises for solidity when you lack the quality. City NEEDED fullbacks as in they had none on their books following their mini exodus. if u were to pick between 50M on a fullback or addressing ur midfield balance or ur lack of a striker.. i think ud do the same. City's late bid is kind of borderline ridiculous tbh. Sanchez will need to perform this season given he wants a transfer away but 60M is big enough money to get in a replacement. Idk why wenger doesn't just go for someone like Mahrez and have faith in lacazette/giroud. They're not going to win him titles but they are solid enough to challenge for top 4. I'd happily trade Sanchez for any of their front line but im guessing thats not on the table. Even a cheeky Sturridge bid would be quite a smart idea but a bit of a gamble from an injury standpoint.
  17. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    blind is solid as fuck. can do a lot worse than him at LB. attacking very very lacking but mourinho loves being solid over being attacking and i think hes addressed your most pressing needs very well (CMF/ST). shaw needs to either flourish or fuck off for u guys now. i can see him thriving at a club where they dont mind a lazy pussy. mourinho just doesnt put up with that shit. he has/had definite quality but extracting that seems to be quite painful at present. arsenal are fucked up. sanchez should go based on his smirking and general fucked up attitude but they should have sold him earlier in the window. idk why barca aren't just signing him as a stop-gap for next season if we are playing hard ball with coutinho. arsenal if at all possible should have definitely taken sterling. sterling in today's market is worth way more than 60M but I personally believe that was never an option for city. City's forward line is now definitely ridiculous + they have an EXCELLENT second string young side sterling/sane/jesus w/bernado behind. if sanchez going stops us getting lemar, i will be a bit gutted if i was lemar, i'd wait out for a move to us instead. arsenal are just such a terrible move for any player at present. AOC is a very very interesting buy. a player who really does ooze class on his day but im not sure how tactically aware he is. i hope hes not the english more versatile mouassa sissoko where he looks worldclass at times with ridic athleticism and technical ability but lacks everywhere else. his actual output is shocking but his chances created etc. are good but so was downing's. regardless at worst he will be very very decent as a cover option for out-wide and the middle and hes very young. if he can learn to play LB, we will be onto a winner but thats probably being a little crazy. I personally see AOC as our long term milner replacement. i wish he was a bit more tactically astute and defensively rounded as I'd love us to have a park ji sung type player (which milner basically is at the moment).

    it all seemed really stupid
  19. Game of Thrones TV Show

    lol nah, it was just horrid and terrible. everyone was acting far dumber than usual, especially LF. LF had no clear beneficial motive to wanting arya dead. it was just the shittest storyline in GOT next to "capture a wight". IMO GRRM does have an exit strategy, its the TV show writers that don't.
  20. Game of Thrones TV Show

    what better shows are on? [i only have black sails on my list. ] i still think got is one of/the best show on TV but its just a totally different show from s01-04. this is a fantasy style action show now. s01-s04 were like tv crack, it had the wire levels of intellect in a fantasy setting with clear confines of realism within a fictional universe + attack on titan levels of consequence... with equal emphasis on each thread! if i were to rate episodes i have one rating against for what GOT was like (this season's ep averages 6-7s...) and a rating for just how good the episode is as a standalone TV show episode (in which case its a lot of 9s and 10s)
  21. Game of Thrones TV Show

    what did u like about it this whole arya vs sansa thing made no sense to me i dont see how they got one over little finger either. it seemed more like sansa just finally had enough of littlefinger and outed him after acting w/arya for no reason given arya has the whole faceless thing and LF is one of the most intelligent characters in the show and sansa has ridic levels of exp by now, they could have constructed a lot smarter storyline. i thought that was actually one of the worst aspects of this season i liked ep 4. jamie should have died vs drogo tho. like legit eaten. also is tomrund invincible or did he die end of finale? i feel like if that was actually them killing him off, then why not let him die in ep 6?
  22. Game of Thrones TV Show

    lmao wrong article. google game of thrones forbes season 7 or some shit
  23. Game of Thrones TV Show

    they killed off littlefinger cos they didnt know what to do with him their whole storyline tricked us rather than him, the worst type of storytelling. Even the finale where they were trying to be smart was dreadful. everyone makes NO sense in regards to actions which is just a bit sad. https://www.forbes.com/sites/unicefusa/2017/08/01/breastfeeding-gives-children-everywhere-a-healthy-start-in-life/#6c522502473a that article was quite good at summing up some of what i am dissapointed about with this season. im watching black sails s03 and its excellent. its like the opposite of GOT. starts action and visually and gets serious/intelligent. whilst GOT has decided to do it in reverse.
  24. Game of Thrones TV Show

    finale too predictable. it was just good.
  25. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    gini and can especially were ridiculous. this is without coutinho + lallana. our squad is ridiculous from an offensive sense, attacking + in midfield from an attacking sense. Salah + Mane are just CRAZY. Add in Firmino's telepathy and its ridic. I will say tho when Sturridge came on, you could see hes clearly not on their wave length from a teamwork perspective. not hammering the guy, afterall he scored but he lacks the edge they have with their interplay between eachother and hes got some catching up to do if he wants to challenge firmino for the middle. its just sad that we have the shakiest/most individual-error prone defence by far in the top 6 and possibly even top 10 teams. karius looked shakey as hell, moreno was a bit better but saw one misplaced pass in first half which was just horrible. obviously we can't sort this out in time so we're instead hoping klopp transforms the guys we have got into great defenders. i can see the potential in all of them and hopefully cleansheet today does everyones confidence the world of good. we NEED Can to sign this new deal. if he doesn't, we'll lost a potential 100M centre mid. I'm thinking the money we wanted to put into keita would be better put in defence and maybe just spending more time developing Can. Theres nothing this guy can't do well.
