  1. Richie was lucky Mawson didn't make a meal of it and even Richie himself says he was lucky not to be sent off. As for Mane, I'm surprised there is any debate at all. He had his foot dangerously high and kicked a guy in the face. Red card all day long.
  2. I thought they absolutely nailed just about everything in this episode. It goes up there as one of my all-time favourites. I loved all the interactions at the Dragon Pit, especially Sandor's face-off with his brother and the Tyrion-Bronn-Podrick reunion. I hope those three get to work together again in the future. Littlefinger is my favourite character in the books, so I was a bit gutted to see him killed off. But it was the best way for him to go, reduced to a snivelling wreck by the woman he trained. I do think he should have been able to argue his case a bit better though, taken by surprise or not. Jaime finally standing up to Cersei and telling her where to stick it was sweet. The look on her face as he walked away from her was totally perfect - kudos to two fantastic actors for that scene. And the Tyrion-Cersei scene was also really well done. The Wall coming down. We all knew it was coming but it was still spectacular to see. UnViserion looked amazing and the Night King is going to take some stopping. I just hope that Tormund survived the Wall falling. I am so hyped for Season 8 now, the wait is going to be unbearable.
  3. The Wall will fall at Eastwatch, taking Tormund and Beric with it. Dolorous Edd (if the show remember's he's alive) will arrive in Winterfell with the bad news. Arya kills Littlefinger, though I really hope I'm wrong. I want LF to survive the series. If only the "good" characters survive the Great War it would be too unrealistic. Some of the bastards have to survive, and LF is my favourite bastard. Cersei refuses to help with the war in the north so Jaime deserts her and heads off to help by himself.
  4. I see Stoke fans are still booing Ramsay for having the nerve to get his leg broken by Shawcross. Real classy, those guys.
  5. Conte is coming over all Mourinho in his post-match interview. He said before the season he wanted to avoid a "Mourinho season" but it already looks like that hasn't worked. He was moaning about having had players sent off in their last three games and sarcastically suggested they start practicing with ten men in preparation. Perhaps he would be better off teaching his players better discipline?
  6. Come on Burnley! We want five! Liverpool look like they are competing with Arsenal for the title "team with the biggest gap in quality between defence and attack".
  7. I loved just about everything about this episode. Having three Starks back together was great; their interactions were believable considering all they had been through since they last met. I actually thought the dialogue was pretty strong throughout the episode. The battle. So much about the battle was awesome. The Dothraki charge, the Lannister tactics and the way they got blown out of the water by the arrival of Drogon. Bronn using the scorpion to wound the dragon and prove it isn't infallible. Theon and Jon's scene was nice, to see Theon get a tiny bit of forgiveness. Now if he could just save his sister and get some more redemption ...
  8. I'm happy with the new Doctor. Jodie Whittaker is a great actress and having her along with a new show runner should freshen things up. As much as I liked Capaldi Doctor things have been going a bit stale for a while now. A complete reboot and (hopefully) toning down the overly complicated stories seems like the way to go.
  9. i love watching tail enders. Broad gets 2 sixes then Anderson gets one of his own. Great fun out there.
  10. I have no faith in Ballance. He sometimes looks solid but you always know that he has that failure in him at all times. Root and Ali were fantastic. Hopefully they can push on today and take the score nearer 500 to really put the pressure on SA.
  11. Only Fools and Horses Blackadder Father Ted Red Dwarf Spaced It's tough after the first three because there are so many others I could name but OFAH, Blackadder and Father Ted are, IMO, head and shoulders above the rest.
  12. In fairness, a certainty of ineptitude is still certainty of a sort.
  13. How do Arsenal expect to win anything when they lose their best players? I have just found out they have released Yaya Sanogo! They don't stand a chance now. Hopefully Sanchez can step up to fill the void.
  14. Ruth Davidson for PM! Just about the only Conservative to come out of this with her reputation enhanced.
  15. Goldsmith has won with a huge majority of 45. It's weird to think that there was only 1 hung parliament between 1945-2010, and now we have had two in three elections. Good work, Mrs May. You turned a relatively strong position into a virtually untenable one.
