  1. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    Another 4-0 win. Was a close game until the last 10 minutes where they just fell apart. We didn't play great but we looked more solid once Herrera was subbed on. We drew 1-1 with Everton twice last season in the league so it's nice to get a win over them. Koeman talked shit about us a lot last season for no reason but he clearly has a big job on his hands. Very little pace on his side, and he signed a bunch of players who don't seem to have addressed Everton's biggest problems. Rooney was surely not meant to be the Lukaku replacement, they needed to go a spend that Lukaku money on a quality striker. I'd say Giroud would have been a good signing for them but he doesn't address that pace issue either.

    Manchester City look like they could do the business this season. They hit Watford for six earlier today. I didn't watch the Liverpool game but they drew 1-1 so I assume their defence let them down as per usual. http://www.football365.com/news/klopp-no-better-defenders-out-there-than-the-ones-i-have His teams play great attacking football but Klopp clearly hasn't got a scooby-doo when it comes to organising a defense. I looked at the Liverpool subreddit and they were saying somebody didn't mark the far post (might have been near post I forget which). It's clearly not just the players that are the problem anymore. Not that I'm complaining though.
  3. Flaws of Goat Format. What would you change about it?

    You can beat most of them fairly easy though if you use a side deck, or even just come up with loops with Magician of Faith to break down certain setups if you have the right options to add back. I don't think they're such a problem, and even if they were if you just played 3/5 matches instead of 2/3 that weakens them even more. These kind of decks tend to excel in g1 usually. Mind you I'm not that good at this format so maybe I'm missing something.
  4. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    Roy Hodgson has been announced as the new manager of Crystal Palace FC.
  5. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    Celtic fans will tell you Celtic Park is the biggest home advantage in world football but it's a massacre out there; PSG 3-0 Celtic. Not so easy when they are facing teams stronger than the EFL League 1 to beat up on. 1-0 at half time against Basel, we've dominated the ball and stopped them from barely getting out of their box but we've created very little. At least Young could put in a decent cross unlike Valenica. Fellaini isn't a great player but he has his uses so I can see why Mourinho would want to keep him.
  6. I think ACP said on Discord that he amended his will to give $20 to Silver if he died in Hurricane Irma.
  7. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    The first managerial casualty of the season award goes to Frank De Boer, lasting four Premier League games with Crystal Palace. Embarrassing from the club as a whole.
  8. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    I don't think it's 50/50 in any way personally. Puts Eric Cantona to shame.
  9. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    I think it was a red. For sure the ball was there to be won but Mane had both feet off the ground, not just one. He had no control over the challenge. For me it's a red, I'm not sure why Gary Neville feels so strongly otherwise. He blatantly kicked him in the head at the end of the day, certainly very dangerous.
  10. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    Liverpool's record against the top six under Klopp and City's questionable centre of defense make it too difficult for me to predict anything other than a Liverpool win. I'm going for 3-1. Mind you, Liverpool's back four is hilariously bad. How on earth does Klavan still get into their side lmao.
  11. I just found out Baboon used to work in the damage step but that got a ruling change later on, great card though.
  12. Maybe it's just me then. I still think drawing those Insect Knights and Neo Bugs must have been just awful when people were summoning Troopers or Stratos against you. Green Baboon could revive itself when it died from battle right? I remember there was a ruling change on it but idk if that change was part of this format or not. I can't remember exactly what the change was but I do know the card was supposed to be bananas before at the time and was still a very good card afterwards. I see two people who have voted for January 2014 but nothing else. Please vote for a second format or I wont know if I should really count those two votes. Even if you don't care about Troop Dupe or Tele DAD you can just ignore them when the rotation arrives at those formats.
  13. Troop Dupe has taken the lead on Jan 14 now. I like Jan 14 and think its is fairly balanced but maybe people have had enough of Gears, Water and Fire Fist over the last few years at this point. Water did always have the advantage against them in the end. PCM didn't top 8 US Nats that year strangely. Maybe the shitload of D.D. Crows caught up with the Destiny Hero engine. GK Spy was everywhere in top 8, even Machine Beatdown added them + Raiza's. LaDD was out in time for Nats too right? Funny that people call this Troop Dupe yet achine Duplication was a dead piece of shit half the time because the only target was Card Trooper. I also distinctly remember one guy at my locals called Faisal always doing well with Demise. Idk how anybody could play that shit with a straight face when you're running 4-6 vanillas. I've no idea how it won even one SJC. It looks inconsistent on paper but maybe Manju + Senju + Sonic Bird package made up for drawing the occasional Neo Bug lol. The deck never really worked out for me personally. Also were those old Demise players allergic to Reckless Greed? Jar of Greeds everywhere in Demise lists from what I can tell. Maybe Reckless was on the f/l list at the time. Was J-Hero an OCG thing? I'm assuming J stands for Japanese. I only recall T-Hero at the time.
  14. CSOC is legal in TeleDAD.
