  2. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    Moreno and Henderson are so shit it's hilarious. Liverpool lead 3-0 at the break only to draw 3-3 with Sevilla. Spurs top their group with Real Madrid finishing second, a fantastic achievement. They are surely one of the better sides in the competition. EDIT: I just found out that the Sevilla coach Berizzo was diagnosed with prostate cancer, awful news. Apparently the Sevilla players found out at half-time, maybe that's what inspired their comeback.
  3. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    The UEFA Champions League draw for 2017/18 season takes place today at 17:00 BST at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. The managers of each of the 5 english sides in the competition have now completed a minimum of one season at their respective club, meaning that managers like José Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Jürgen Klopp and Antonio Conte will no longer have any excuse for a poor showing after having had a chance to build their team with two summer transfer windows. With the astronomical amounts of money now in the English game, English clubs are expected to perform better in the competition now moreso than in the last 5 years or so. Below are the seedings for each pot and the country the club represents. Pot 1 contains the title holders and the champions of the top seven associations based on their 2016 UEFA country coefficients. As the title holders, Real Madrid, are one of the champions of the top seven associations, the champions of the association ranked eighth are also seeded into Pot 1 (regulations Article 13.05). Pots 2, 3 and 4 contain the remaining teams, seeded based on their 2017 UEFA club coefficients. In each group, teams play against each other home-and-away in a round-robin format. The group winners and runners-up advance to the round of 16, while the third-placed teams enter the 2017–18 UEFA Europa League round of 32. The matchdays are 12–13 September, 26–27 September, 17–18 October, 31 October – 1 November, 21–22 November, and 5–6 December 2017. A total of 32 teams play in the group stage: 22 teams which enter in this stage, and the 10 winners of the play-off round (5 from Champions Route, 5 from League Route). Qarabağ and RB Leipzig will make their debut appearances in the group stage. Pot One: Real Madrid (ESP) FC Bayern München (GER) Juventus (ITA) Chelsea (ENG) Benfica (POR) Shakhtar Donetsk (UKR) AS Monaco (FRA) Spartak Moscow (RUS) Pot Two: Barcelona (ESP) Atlético Madrid (ESP) Paris Saint-Germain (FRA) Borussia Dortmund (GER) Sevilla (ESP) Manchester City (ENG) Porto (POR) Manchester United (ENG) Pot Three: Napoli (ITA) Tottenham Hotspur (ENG) Basel (SWI) Olympiacos (GRE) Anderlecht (BEL) Liverpool (ENG) Roma (ITA) Beşiktaş (TUR) Pot Four: Celtic (SCO) CSKA Moscow (RUS) Sporting CP (POR) APOEL (CYP) Feyenoord (NED) Maribor (SLO) Qarabağ (AZE) RB Leipzig (GER) Arguably it is preferable to be in Pot Two rather than Pot One this year. Who do you support, and what would be your ideal group stage draw?
  4. Justice League

    The Flash was awful, holy crap. The way he runs is very goofy. He's suposed to be the comic relief but he's not very funny. How on Earth are they going to do Flashpoint in the very first Flash film? Cut scenes where you could tell there was meant to be a little more dialogue. Needed 30 more mins. Cool cameo by a certain character. CGI was also total crap on Cyborg, Steppenwolf and The Flash. Really let the film down. No character development for the villain, nor did I feel I learned that much about Cyborg. Aquaman wasn't as bad as I feared. Ending was a little unsatisfactory; villain defeated and... film's over? The world just got invaded by aliens, correct? Should be a bigger deal imo. 2-3/5. Affleck wasn't as good as in BvS either.
  5. how do i block people

    nevermind i figured it out now
  6. I suggest we remove the heart cap because it's taking forever to finish this.
  7. Troop Dup Format - March 2007

    Yeah but the last SJC was in August and had Tactical Evolution which nobody really plays with in this format since the Zombie deck is more associated with the format after.
  8. Troop Dup Format - March 2007

    I just checked Metagame and Yugioh Wikia, Green Baboon was released July 15 but the last SJC pre-TAEV was July 14 (SJC Detroit, 2007) so I'm pretty sure that I can't make Baboon legal unless you just wanna play a format that never even had a premier event. Guess I'll just pick US Nationals 2007 for card legality, along with the ban on prize cards that we do for all Lives.
  9. Troop Dup Format - March 2007

    I think I will do a Live of this format after the war season ends. Tempted to pick some SJC pre-TAEV for card legality though because I know a handful people like Baburn.
  10. Justice League

    I read a second 1/5 review yesterday. Fuck this. Also apprently Joss Whedon liked a tweet saying Steppenwolf is a terrible villain. He probably knew the film sucked even before it came out, same with Ben Affleck. The Flash is supposed to be an adaptation of the Flashpoint story. Maybe that's what they need; use that as an excuse to change everything from actors to directors and try desperately to course correct.
  11. Thor: Ragnarok

    The third and (presumably) final installment to the Thor franchise of the MCU. Doesn't quite feel like Thor to me. Did they show too much?
  12. Justice League

    Comes out this Friday. Most nom-spoiler reviews I've read say the film is mediocre, although the Telegraph gave it 1/5. CGI supposedly bad and they don't explore Cyborg's character much at all. Maybe they should have left him to the Teen Titans instead. Maybe Ben Affleck is right to try and back out of playing Batman. Sad part is that even if this sucks I know I'll be there to watch the Batman film and Wonder Woman 2 anyway. Bring on Avengers 3 I guess.

    Was this a ranked match?
  14. Goat Duel Review Thread

    Interesting that you posted this because I was thinking of using the replays to post-commentate my own or other people's games to try and figure out what I did wrong. I just wish it showed the opponent's hand too.
  15. Thor: Ragnarok

    So did anybody actually go see this?
  16. The Premier League 16/17 season saw Antonio Conte’s Chelsea run away with the title but the competition is sure to heat up this year with all top 6 managers having now completed their first full season with their squad. Who will win the league this season? Signings: Arsenal: Alexandre Lacazette, Sead Kolašinic Chelsea: Ethan Ampadu, Tiemoué Bakayoko, Willy Caballero, Álvaro Morata, Antonio Rüdiger Liverpool: Mohammed Salah, Andrew Robertson Manchester City: Bernardo Silva, Ederson Moraes, Kyle Walker, Danilo, Benjamin Mendy Manchester United: Victor Lindelöf, Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matić Tottenham Hotspur: N/A 16/17 Season Review Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side marched to victory in the league after making a change in system accelerated by the 3-0 defeat at the Emirates which exposed the frailties in Conte’s initial 4-1-4-1. New signing and 15/16 league champion N’Golo Kante helped Chelsea’s counter-attacking style by acting as a ball-winning midfield alongside Serbian Nemanja Matić to initiate counter-attacks quickly. A rejuvenated Victor Moses and new signing Marcos Alonso functioned as the essential wing-backs to make forward runs in behind defenders, or make space for Pedro, Diego Costa and Eden Hazard. However, an inability to sign key targets such as Alex Sandro as well as the sale of Nemanja Matić to Manchester United have left Conte disappointed at his club’s transfer activity so far. Mauricio Pochettino established himself as one of the best coaches in the league this season after leading Tottenham to a second place finish, and the first time the club has ended the season above bitter London rivals since the 94/95 season. The brilliant pair of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweirld formed the backbone of the strongest defense in the league, while full-backs Kyle Walker and Danny Rose allowed Spurs to move their play wide and make overlapping runs for Cristian Eriksen and Son Heung-min, who were given freedom to make runs inside. However, the club has made no signings so far this Summer, and with most other top 6 clubs strengthening it may become more difficult for Tottenham to challenge this coming season. Pep Guardiola's Manchester City were the favourites going into the season. Signing Claudio Bravo, Leroy Sané, İlkay Gündoğan, Nolito, Gabriel Jesus, and Oleksander Zinchenko (who subsequently left on loan), Guardiola transitioned City's style of play into a possession based team using passing channels and slow build-up play to help dominate and break down the opposition. After a disappointing league campaign finishing 3rd, as well as losing in the FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal, fourth round EFL Cup knockout against bitter city rivals Manchester United and a Champion's League last 16 defeat at the hands of Leonardo Jardim's brilliant AS Monaco, Pep Guardiola will be sure to reinvest heavily this Summer to ensure a more successful season. Guardiola has fuelled further speculation by stating that his squad needs a “little more” to compete on all fronts after an initial five signings. Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool have once again finished in the top four after doing so in 13/14 thanks to the heroics of Luis Suárez. Klopp's exciting "heavy metal football" resonated with the Anfield faithful who seek return to the glory days of the 80's. Playing fast attacking football with a high line and high press, Liverpool would win the ball further up the pitch and quickly overload the opposition. Liverpool showed they are as good as anyone in the league with an excellent record vs the top six, but a potential title challenge was halted by inconsistent form against the lower half of the table. Following the sale of Neymar to Paris St. Germain, Barcelona have a large transfer war chest to spend on Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele and Liverpool’s Phillipe Coutinho who has reportedly already agreed personal terms with Barcelona. Arsène Wenger remains in a job after a horrendous 16/17 season which saw his Arsenal side finish outside Champion's League qualification for the first time in 20 years. Despite an FA Cup win, the season was one of Wenger's worst and calls for his resignation had been louder than ever. However, having signed a 2-year extension it would seem Arsenal fans have become resigned to another season under his leadership. Having signed left-back Sead Kolašinac and striker Alexandre Lacazette, Wenger may turn his attention towards Leicester City's Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez who has requested a transfer from the club following a disappointing season when compared to his 15/16 performance, or OGC Nice’s Jean Michaël Seri. Mahrez, however, has also been linked heavily with a move to AS Roma. Despite strengthening, Wenger may still find it difficult to keep talisman Alexis Sanchez who seems determined to leave the club and move to Manchester City. A horror contract situation whereby Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Özil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all have 12 months or less left on their contracts has also been described by Wenger as “ideal” for generating competition in the squad… Manchester United - now managed by José Mourinho - enjoyed a successful season, winning the EFL Cup and Europa League to qualify for the Champion's League's Pot B. Despite a disappointing league campaign in which a plethora of draws stalled his side to a 6th place finish and an FA Cup last 8 defeat at the hands of Antonio Conte's Chelsea, Manchester United fans are satisfied with the season and feel the rot has been stopped after three painful seasons following the Sir Alex Ferguson era. The pressure is now on for Mourinho to mount a challenge for the league title thanks to the financial muscle of the club which has allowed them to spend upwards of £75m on former Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, and £35m on Swedish Benfica centre-back Victor Lindelöf. A failure to sign French striker Antoine Griezmann following Atletico Madrid's transfer ban this Summer, as well as Internazionale’s Ivan Periŝić had held up Mourinho's transfer plans. However, the recent signing of Nemanja Matic (£35m + £5m) will surely add balance and discipline to Mourinho’s midfield, allowing Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera to play in more advanced positions. 17/18 table predictions: 1 Manchester City 2 Manchester United 3 Chelsea 4 Tottenham Hotspur ------------------------------------------------------- 5 Liverpool 6 Arsenal ------------------------------------------------------- 7 Everton 8 Southampton 9 Leicester City 10 West Bromwich Albion 11 Bournemouth 12 West Ham United 13 Stoke City 14 Burnley 15 Newcastle United 16 Crystal Palace 17 Watford -------------------------------------------------------- 18 Swansea City 19 Brighton & Hove Albion 20 Huddersfield Town What are your predictions?

  19. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    Another good win for us over Benfica, though I missed the second half unfortunately. Making Blind take a penalty was surely a message to our attackers(particularly Lukaku and Martial) to get their act together on penalty duty. I just watched highlights of Chelsea vs Roma, their defending is hilarious. Starting to think Griezmann is surely on his way out of Atletico either in January or the Summer. A poor start to the season and Atletico are basically out of the CL, idk what's left for him to play for at the club. He's playing like somebody who just doesn't want be there anymore. I hope we can still get him, would be a fantastic #10 and take our attacking play up another level with his exceptional movement.
  20. May 2002 - Yugi vs Kaiba Format

    I think this format is pretty good and I wish there was more of a following for it. I'd love to do a Live for this but I don't think there's much interest. When I've played it I often get punished for misreading their set and wasting Trap Master or De-Spell. In terms of deck building I don't think there's much to do because the card pool is small but the gameplay isn't too bad.
  21. Well that was a "Quik-Fix".
  22. Barclays Premier League 2017/18

    We didn't play great yesterday but our defense held resolute and a mistake from Dier let Martial in to win us the game 1-0. The 3-5-2 could be the future of our team, I wonder if that's what Mourinho was planing on with Perisić as the left wing-back.
