  1. UK Politics: The Overton Defenestration

    You just know you've done well when people have to deny that you likened someone to Nazis.

    Not sure at other moves, but my 2165 Machamp with Bullet Punch and Cross Chop isn't all that great.
  3. Pokemon Go: Generation 2

    I'm powering up one at the time, but the 4000-4500 category doesn't feel all that cost-efficient. Should perhaps prioritize to power up the 2000-2500 category now.
  4. It opens up for continuation within the same world, but the storyline that starts in book one ends in book three.
  5. Football: Reds Rising!!

    I was only watching the second half on Sunday (family visit), so I've got an incomplete picture, but what struck me was how little penetration City played with. Except for the individual quality of the players, they sort of looked like us from last year - all moving the ball and no attempt at getting in behind or stretching defences. Sure, we contributed by staying deep and working hard, but a team of City's quality should be able to break through and at least create chances. The second problem, which also mirrored ours from last season, is that when they're caught on a break, they are extremely vulnerable. Most players have already moved into attacking positions, so there is a lot of space at the back. Add to that that their CBs aren't all that great one-on-one, and that Bravo isn't top drawer, and you have a problem. The issues in attack I think are temporary, or game-by-game - most games, they will break through. The talent they have up front is immense. At the back, though, those problems look more long-term. I would argue that a whole new back four and a keeper is needed (perhaps save Stones, if he can get a leader beside him - I still think he can be good), plus perhaps N'golo Kante.

    Not sure about that part, this article includes the phrase " The Cameroon centre-half retired from international football in 2015 but the national team coach Hugo Broos has attempted to call him up for the Africa Cup of Nations." And I do believe that if the rule goes, so does the international championships, at least in their current form. Doesn't make it a good rule, mind.

    Just a heads up: Mexal is an Arsenal fan. The only Tottenham fans here (that I remember) is Slick and Iceman, and they don't post often..

    Very happy for Tom Davies - he doesn't look out of place in the PL. Good to see people coming through the academy. Also very happy for Lookman, who got six minutes in his debut, and scores. Excellent assist from Stones.

    And we've confirmed Schneiderlin. I like that. Good player, early business.

    Reports say that Hull are solving their problem by loaning striking sensation Oumar Niasse from Everton. The man has scored goals in the U-23s (where he was placed by Koeman after looking like sh*t in the preseason), so I fully expect Hull to be out of trouble by early February.

    It's a strange world, being an Evertonian this year. Looks like we've more or less concluded three deals already - Ademola Lookman from Charlton, Schneiderlin from United and some bloke named Ishak Belfodil from Standard Liege. Now, this being Everton, I wouldn't be surprised to see one of the latter fall through on something, but we've been more active than I can recall .. ever. And Schneiderlin especially will be an addition we need, given that Barry really can't play the high pressing game and Gueye is off to AfCON.

    Will probably lead to a WC sort of like the EC this summer. Too many uninteresting matches. It will make the skipping of matches a lot easier, though.

    I actually caught a Dragonite in the wild (around 1200 CP, so a bit easier). Took quite a few razberries and about 50 Ultra balls.

    We're out of the FA Cup. Ah, well, hope we'll improve next league game. Couldn't see this one, listened to it a bit, and it seems we're struggling to contain other teams defensively. The presence of Barry is noted.

    Btw, since the author is around, I was wondering if the Finnish-sounding names and umlauts is a tip of the hat to Tolkien? You may not be his biggest fan, but you're in the running
