    Forest 2018/19 thread

    I don't really need any help to get annoyed when it comes to Forest but thanks anyway  There must be close to 100 players from the last 6 or 7 years who could give that same interview......

    Burton away in the cup

    Anyone who doesn't pick their best team deserves to go out. A place in the quarter finals at stake and they don't even want to get through

    What Have You Been Watching?

    I'll have a go with Sally4ever over the next weeks or so. Have you listened to the Joan and Jericha podcasts? If not, I think you'll like them, it's a kind of agony aunt radio show with Julia Davies and Vicky Pepperdine
  4. I've had basically no internet for over three weeks. It's been unbearable

    What's wrong with the UK?

    I find it amazing anyone would criticise the presence of a couple of women in football coverage, after 60 years of exclusively male coverage populated almost entirely by smug and lazy dullards and halfwits. I thought Scott and particularly Aluko were both excellent at the World Cup - head and shoulders above most of the male 'experts'. What I liked best was the fact they'd clearly done research on the teams involved. Such a contrast to the usual 'analysis' we get. It's not long ago we had Hansen and Savage openly laughing at the very idea of even knowing any of the Slovenia players' names. Football puditry, on the bbc in particular, is such a closed shop old chums together environment that any woman who gets through is going to have be twice as good as a man needs to be. The standard is appallingly low so any women coming in can only raise the overall level. Hopefully the days when you could just turn up knowing absolutely nothing about the very thing you're going on television to talk about and just wing it because you played a few games for Liverpool 30 years ago are coming to an end..........

    News chit chat

    There's been more outrage over burning a replica Grenfell Tower than there was over the actual one. Was anyone ever arrested over the actual fire or are attentions now being focussed on the burning of the cardboard one? I wonder how many serious crimes have gone unreported or investigated while people get all worked up over something slightly offensive taking place at a private party

    What Have You Been Watching?

    I watched the first series of Walking Dead but left it that that as I wasn't impressed. I might expand on this later, or I might not. What I liked about Stars in Their Eyes was how after the performance Kelly would really over sell the whole thing eg. "Well, you certainly won't be going back to the factory on Monday". Yeah, because there's going to be a million pound record deal and World tour lined up for some middle-aged bloke who was on itv for five minutes sounding a bit like the guy from Kajagoogoo

    What's Lviv backed today.

    Swansea 62.5, it's a buy. Get on.
  9. As dreams has come up I'm going to take this opportunity to post this again which I liked by former camgirl, sexy mime, and gnome enthusiast Aella. People should probably follow her on twitter, if only for the polls. "When I was a child, I was terrified that when I grew up I would forget what it was like to be a child. I saw adults, all of whom I knew had once been children, ignoring my attempts to communicate that things were very important to me, or offhandedly giving me torturous punishments and remaining unaffected by my pleas. I knew they never ever would have treated me like this if they’d remembered what it was like to be a child, and I was terrified that I would become the same one day and do the same to my children. So I sent myself mental letters. I knew I would forget my experiences, so I imprinted messages with a stamp of “this is incredibly important even if you don’t feel it anymore” I ritualistically would recall these messages and honor their importance in order to preserve them across time and my growing up. This is how now, I have ‘messages’ in my mind from my past self, saying things like “children are real humans and their pain is real” and “don’t underestimate how important things are to children.” – I don’t remember my dreams very well, and when I, right now, remember being in a dream, it is vague, unreal, and like the images flicker out beneath me. If you asked me if being in a dream is as real as real life, I would say no, not really. Except I have messages, the same sort my child self sent to my adult self. The messages say “I know I am in a dream, but this is no less real than your every day life. These sensations are real. I can feel pain, cold, hunger, joy. I am looking around at the room and it is the same. Do not forget this.” The most vivid thing I take out of my dreams is that message, and that really freaks me out". In other news, would anyone like to recommend a broadband provider? Sky has gone shit
  10. I have a standard dream where I'm lead into an odd situation and get increasingly provoked to the point where I have to kill someone. It usually features an odd mix of people from my past I haven't thought about in years and minor celebrities I've seen on tv recently. A favourite example is appearing on 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire' and doing well until I got the question "What's the best song ever?". I went for what I knew to be the correct answer - 'Violent Mood Swings' by Stabbing Westward* but Tarrant ruled it wrong and declared it was something or other by, I think, Steps. I can't remember the details but I refused to accept I was wrong, not because the question made no sense and there wasn't a correct answer but because I was definitely right. Tarrant was refusing to even discuss it properly and kept making stupid jokes at my expense to get cheap laughs from the audience. This went on for some time until eventually I simply beat him to death. What I like best about the dream was that it wasn't from my point of view at the time but from my point of view at home watching this happen on television. So not only had there been no repercussions from openly murdering Chris Tarrant but that itv had decided to just broadcast the episode as normal * I don't actually believe this to be the best song ever, although I do feel it was the best from the four options provided at the time.

    What Have You Been Watching?

    Why would anyone start watching it now if they didn't watch it in the previous 50 years it feels like it's been going? Can't I tempt the two of you to watch Oz instead?...
  13. For a lot of people, they just don't like Karanka so it's not so much they want him out as they never wanted him in the first place. They don't like style of football or just don't rate him or whatever and he hasn't done anything to change their mind. That's fine. However anyone who was happy to see Warburton sacked and happy to see Karanka appointed, yet now wants him sacked is frankly a bit of an idiot.

    Karanka - sack or keep

    Keep. He should get, as an absolute minimum, until the end of the season. If you're going to give a manager millions to spend and let him ship out virtually everyone and build en entire new squad you should at least see it through. To sack him in October would be mental.
