Quite impressed with the kid who plays Martin/Stamm and the production design of Deutschland 83.
Also getting sucked into Humans, the AMC/Channel 4 show about androids.
NBC Cancels ‘Hannibal’ After Three Seasons
Watching the replay of the Chile vs. Mexico game on beIN. The first half just wrapped up and I'm feeling winded just watching the players run around at a blistering pace. This experimental squad...
Hope Solo for 2016.
Luis Enrique, sockless. Tut tut.
Hoping we get to see a great game today. Women's WC kicks off today too!
Some may find this new podcast a bit twee for their tastes, but I'm really digging Starlee Kine's storytelling prowess on Mystery Show.
How a curmudgeonly old reporter exposed the FIFA scandal that toppled Sepp Blatter
My favorite bit from this piece
Wasn't expecting sports politics to spice up the ho-hum end to the season.
Haven't a clue why I can't log onto this forum from devices other than my personal laptop, but...
Who else wept at the glorious spectacle on display today in the CL?
Christ, how do I upvote this beauty?
Will FSG court Klopp to Liverpool? I can't see 'em trusting Rodgers w/ more money for players. Plus, Klopp has oodles of experience with European competition and is more likely to draw top talent to...
Tactics Tim doing good work in recent weeks. Breaking Spurs' hearts, rekindling Benteke's form, and finally, lighting a fire to and stamping on that insipid Stevie G FA Cup birthday narrative. What...
Jürgen Klopp: I‘m not taking a sabbatical. I was no longer the perfect coach for Dortmund
In other words, a shout out to the PL clubs: come get me!
Come on you Arsenal and United fans, sing it to the tune of "White Christmas"

so there's more to Ancestry.com than the ads you see on TV?
Ancestry.com is quietly transforming itself into a medical research juggernaut
Yours is the first mention of Kane in this thread. Let it be the last.
Yes, Rakitić, Modrić, Mandžukić, Ødegaard, etc. are all lovely footballers. But if I'm being honest with myself, seeing the odd glimpse of Niko Kovač on the sidelines is the real reason I've tuned...
^ won't be attending this year. Enjoy though, and take pictures!
this bummed me out
PSG vs Barca (rematch of the group stage)
yet another Madrid derby (Real probably ain't too happy to be facing Atleti again for the umpteenth time in under a year)
And time to stick a fork in it, the last remaining PL team in European competition just got washed out.
Insound Shutting Down: Online music retailer closing doors after 16 years
Miffed that Fellaini didn't get red carded for his persistent fouls though.
A pity that Schalke came sooooo close, but weren't able to pull off a miracle at the Bernabéu today.
Another vote for A Visit From the Goon Squad. I think you'll really dig some of the writer's references to 1970s punk rock.
The Gunners are going to Wembley!
FA Cup Semi-Finals
(Bradford City or Reading) vs Arsenal
Aston Villa vs (Liverpool or Blackburn Rovers)
Squealed with delight when Amazon confirmed last night that my copy of this book had shipped. Finally, a new novel after a long wait.
Any tips on deworming songs from Empire that get stuck in your head? I didn't sign up for this nuisance.
Searched for any prior mentions of Channel 4's Cucumber and found this in the Gays Only...
Well...what am I supposed to do with this MoPo party mask now?!
Even knowing that they'd likely succumb to a potent side in the next round, advancing to the QFs would have been a nice checkbox to tick. The first goal conceded could be classed as unlucky; the...
Which stings more -- loss to spuds or this?
Is Bayern playing Bielsa's favorite formation (i.e., a 3-3-3-1)?
If I could nick a player from the PSG lineup to put into my team, it'd be Verratti. I have a soft spot for tiny midfielders.
Today should be fun.
PSG's Starting XI: Sirigu, Van der Wiel, Silva, Marquinhos, Maxwell, Luiz, Verratti, Matuidi, Lavezzi, Ibrahimovic, Cavani.
Chelsea's Starting XI: Courtois, Ivanovic, Terry,...
a period drama set in India? that's like catnip to me. thanks for the tip.

Delightful from Emre Can. Will probably get a call-up from Jogi Löw soon.
I can't breathe. Broad City, wow.
Ha, yes! It's my guilty pleasure. Cookie, man, I can't quit her.
The deal finally completed today, VW Wolfsburg paying €32M plus add-ons for Schürrle. Crikey.
Remember Bellerín's first start at Dortmund where the entire midfield was overrun because of Dortmund's gegenpressing? I still wince when I remember that game. So weird to see Dortmund immersed in a...
Ah Özil, you don't know how much I've missed you.
Bellerín's goal celebration is just as adorable as he is. The Héctor Bellerín bandwagon starts here.
Stoke's tiny forward Bojan ruled out for the rest of the season due to an ACL injury suffered during yesterday's FA Cup round

Still a long way off, but I'd like to see an FA cup final between a PL team and Boro.
My Spanish is abysmal, but I think what this tweet means is that Wenger has finally signed an extra CB....
With Sturridge back in the fold soon, it is possible. Assuming that Chelsea and City are locks for the top two spots, you'll have to count on Southampton (no European football), United (no European...
Did you lot actually cheer City's loss or hit playback on a track of recorded fan noise instead?
The starting 11 for Man City or Arsenal? I'll admit, I wasn't expecting the performance Arsenal...
