    Re: The Walking Dead

    i think they hold form to the comic and it will be Glen. Makes moving forward with the story more fluid.
  2. Re: And we miss Coachella, much like the deserts miss the rain.

    2010 was the first year I missed since my first in 2004. Not by my choice. This will be my 2nd missed in a row. Last year missed by choice (got married!), this year by finances. Sigh...I miss the...
  3. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Yeah, that looks like a panic signing, at best. I still think Mitro can get it done in the long run. I was also glad to see de Jong get some time. I think he was way under used by McClaren. Hopefully...
  4. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Rafa debut, another loss. Definitely some signs of improvement, though. Effort overall was there, and they maintained their shape much more cohesively. I also liked the fact that he didn't wait to...
  5. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Yeah, I wish it was sooner for sure. 10 games left is cutting it far too close.
  6. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    He has his shortcomings, but he is light years away from any manager Tyneside since Sir Bobby, and by far has the most hardware. Will command immediate respect. I think he is out of his depth at the...

  10. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I imagine that was tough to watch, especially when they did just about everything right in the first half (except score). Lack of clinical finishing doomed Arsenal, yet again.

    On another note,...
  11. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    No doubt! Few co-workers and I are going to a place near us that will have both games on.
  12. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Huge CL match coming up between Arsenal and Barca. Starting lineups:

    Arsenal starting XI: Cech, Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Ramsey, Coquelin, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Sanchez,...

    Re: The Phoenix Thread!

    Love Bisbee. Has a cool art vibe to it. Plus, there is a hotel there that is made up of old Airstream trailers. http://www.theshadydell.com/
  14. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Showing what it means to be a clinical striker...pure brilliance.
  15. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Holly Hell, my team sucks balls...2-1 loss to Watford. Why do I put myself through this every season?
  16. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    This could shape up to be one of the best group stages in recent CL years. Very even groups, pretty much all around. Agreed, Chelsea do get a fairly easy path, but most of the other groups are very...

    Re: True Detective

    Just really not good. Been a while since HBO has misfired on a series/season this badly. The show was trying too hard all season. I do enjoy the concept; hopefully they can get it right if a 3rd...
  18. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    True, although I see Stoke having a solid season. Hughes has them going in the right direction.

    Man, I would love for you to be right about my Newcastle!
  20. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Very bad piece of business, for sure. He should fit in well at PSG, though.

    Would love to see Benzema for your boys, but I still like their chances regardless. Theo playing more up the middle is...

  25. Re: And we miss Coachella, much like the deserts miss the rain.

    This will be the first Coachella I am choosing to miss since 2004 (I missed 2010 due to other reasons). My wedding is in early May, and we are paying for everything ourselves, so priorities and all....
  26. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    No thanks. It is pretty ridiculous that rumor ever get any sort of traction. I only hope the Goblin King (aka Tony Pulis) does not take over. I can only handle so much hoof ball.

  28. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    My boys take out Everton (sorry, Chris) and now the rumors are swirling about Pardew heading to Palace. Makes perfect sense for him, and I wouldn't mind seeing him go. He is very limited as a...
  29. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I caught the replay. Great match to watch. Pretty open the entire time with two very evenly matched teams. Barca does have some issues at keeper, though.
  30. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I would normally agree, if not sooner. Issue of course is Mike Ashley; he is all about his money/business. If he sacks Pardew, he stands to lose quite a lot of money due to the remaining contract...

    I was at the game, as well. I asked one of my friends who watched and he said it was complete BS.
  34. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Yeah, he definitely is. After last season he insisted they needed more players, and he got them (I would argue, and I think most agree that they still needed another striker and a CB). If they...
  35. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I can see them battling in the lower tier, yes. I do think they survive, though. I can see Pardew getting sacked prior to that, of course.

    Issue the De Jong injury creates is the 4-2-3-1...

    Re: True Blood

    The final season. while not being great, was nowhere near its worst (that being the "Terry being chased by a smoke monster" season). The first season and the 2nd are the best ones for me.

    The guy is crazy talented. So is Suarez. Teams have to decide if those players are worth the distractions, or not. I don't think Mario is, but if he DOES behave, a smart move for the Reds. Some...
  40. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Smacks of some desperation from Liverpool. I've never thought Balotelli was worth all the headaches.
  41. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Ok, prediction time. Season starts on Saturday. Here are my table picks...what are yours?:


    1. Chelsea
    2. Man City
    3. Arsenal
    4. Manchester United
    5. Everton
    6. Liverpool
    7. Tottenham
  42. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Nice, happy for Everton and Lukaku. He is where he is wanted, and he has proven he can flourish in Martinez's system.
  43. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    That is big, as Arsenal has been notorious for having multiple nagging injury concerns over the years. Hamstring pulls, etc.
  44. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Yeah, just read about it. "Failed" medical can mean so many things. He probably showed up out of shape. I am curious now ff Newcastle will submit an offer. I will say that when he was on the...

  47. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Welcome!

    Sanchez is definitely a great signing for Arsenal. If they play 2 strikers (or Sanchez just behind), that will free up Giroud to poach, as Alexis is much better at creating his own shot,...
  48. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Haven't seen anything official yet on it, but would be a solid move for Liverpool. Wish Newcastle could have done more to keep him, but I can't complain about the moves they have made thus far. I...
  49. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Ha, indeed. Debuchy should be a solid fit for Arsenal. When he first came on board, he tended to get a bit too forward and realized, rather quickly, how much faster the wingers are in the PL. He...
