    Everyone's a Wally! Yes, I remember that. The Great Escape was great. That style of game was quite rare in those days, where you had an aim but were free to do what you wanted within that world. I'm sure there's name for that style but I'm too out of touch to know what it is. Skool Daze/Back to Skool were like that and also great. Only if you got caught you'd get lines rather than killed by a firing squad. Did that happen in Great Escape? Or I might be thinking of Alcatraz Harry. I remember when someone told me about 'Back to Skool' and all the things you could do within it I assumed they were winding me up as it just sounded must too detailed and sophisticated, but it was all true

    Leeds' squad must have averaged about 19 players for the last three years while Forest's must be about 35. Might have something to do with it. Just a guess and Bristol City must have brought in over £50m just from Webster, Reid, Kelly and Flint in the last couple of seasons so I doubt they'll have any worries......

    Recommend a film

    I used to be heavily into the Kevin Smith films but didn't even realise this was out. I had the same thought as you recently, would I still enjoy watching these films that spoke so loudly to me as teenager into more "alternative" comedy as a settled responsible adult? I'm almost afraid to watch them for fear of finally confirming that I'm no longer the same person. As for Jay & Silent Bob, I seem to remember their first film was the Kevin Smith film I enjoyed the least. They work better as "lesser" characters who pop up to compliment the main story with Bob's words of wisdom or Jay's irreverence. A whole film of them was a bit much.

    Automania, Pyjamarama's, Everyone's a Wally, Herbert's Dummy Run and Three Weeks in Paradise were published by Mikro-Gen. Used to visit the Shop in Bracknell, so by coincidence met the owners and programmers of the games! By the way Everyone's a Wally many of the levels referenced real locations in the Towns including TSB Bank, Red Lion Public House and the Garage!

    One game I did like from the C64 and Spectrum days was The Great Escape. There were no levels or end game bosses, it was basically a simulation of life in a POW camp. Obviously the aim was to escape from the camp, but your guy had to be in the dining hall or exercise yard at a particular time of day or the guards came looking for him. You had to slip off from said locations to go and look for items that would help you escape, like plyers to cut through the barbed wire fencing or false papers for the outward journey, but you had to do it when the guards weren't looking else the guards would chase after you. You could hide items you'd found in your room or in a network of tunnels under the camp. That probably all sounds a bit underwhelming but the AI simulating the workings of an actual camp was ahead of it's time (this was 1987) and the game created a sense of peril very well in that you were always one step away from being detected or caught.

    Perhaps he wants a guarantee of match time which given we have Grabban holding down the main striker role we cannot give him that assurance .......

    I just wonder why we are not in for Wells and would watch him go to Bristol

    Don't know anything about the foreign guys but we're linked with Freeman and Wells... those two would strengthen a bid for auto promotion considerably. Talk of Wells being £5m imagine Freeman is going to be the same. How do the other clubs do this with FFP? Leeds/Bristol etc can't be rolling in dough.

    Being linked again with Luke Freeman too. If we get them all in, plus having signed Diakhaby, we should have plenty of creative options going forward.

    Report from France that Da Costa will sign for us within the next 48 hours .. Looks as though we're signing Farid Boulaya also . Both players will offer an upgrade on our skill / pace potential .

    Watching and hearing that loading sequence took me right back. I fucking hated that noise I found this on the iPhone App Store the other day i spent fortunes on this as a kid when we went to the coast on holiday there was a similar space game as well *edit - it was called space ace (the infanto ray )

    Championship chit chat

    I suppose that's true. Although there are a lot more team changes generally compared with Forest's League Cup glory days. A lot of sides make numerous changes if they have three league games in a week. But if football league sides do find a few extra cup matches such a chore then why do they persist with the EFL trophy? While we're on the cups it struck me this season that the scheduling of the FA Cup isn't helping regarding weakened teams. The Third round comes straight after the mad Christmas run of four league games in ten days, then Round Four comes after a rare full midweek Premier League programme. If they held both rounds a week later they'd come after virtually blank midweeks instead, surely meaning far fewer players would be rested.

    No Nuno da Costa in the Strasbourg squad tonight. No Jean Kevin augustin in Monaco squad, no Ibrahim sissoko in the nimes squad. Are we signing them all?

    I hope sabri is at Griffin park today. Thomas Frank ( Brentford manager) says he 'wants to win today and he wants to win on Tuesday in a big game' couple of injuries would be nice today to keep them out for tuesday

    Would like to see us go in for bright osayi Samuel ay QPR. Doing really well this season 22 years old pace in abundance good trickery and is direct. If he wasn't in Eberechi Eze's shadow he would be one of the players attracting a lot of interest. Big future ahead of him.

    Going to Leeds.

    There’s a reason our right flank is so devastating: two outstanding players linking up in a way we haven’t seen since Bonalair & Stone. Breaking up that solid interchangeable offensive/defensive effectiveness that Cash brings would be criminal. it’s replicating that talent & chemistry on the left that’s required.
