    Wow. I know I poopooed Federer a lot in this thread back in September, but damn, I was wrong. I guess you should never count him out. In hindsight, this 6-months-break worked extremely well for him, it allowed him to recover physically and more importantly mentally (similar to Ronnie O'Sullivan in Snooker a couple of years ago). In his absence he got to experience life away from the tour and it made him more relaxed than I've ever seen him. He has nothing to prove and thus has no pressure on him now and that makes him stronger than many of the other top players. I'm intrigued to see how far this comeback takes him, but as long as he keeps playing like this, he should continue until he's 40. Djokovic on the other hand, will probably retire soon. Or maybe take a 6-months-break as well, I think he probably needs it at this point.

    Well, I've been trying to do that, but players only seem to really start scoring points once I've sold them. Edit: And now that I've bought Coutinho he of course goes ahead and injures himself in the very first game.

    Well, I started out really poorly, but the last couple of matchdays have gone really well for me, I might even reach the cup now. Unfortunately my squad value has dropped to about 97 £, is the rest of the money just gone or would it go back to 100 if I were to play the wildcard? There's a couple of midfielders I'd like to buy, but I just don't have the money for it.

    Walking Dead Season 7 (No comic Spoilers)

    I don't mind so much splitting the gang up, as long as the show checks in with everyone each episode. Kind of like GoT did it in the early seasons. I just tend to not care as much about people I don't see for a month and they rarely do anything worth an entire episode with the characters they split from the main group.

    Walking Dead Season 7 (No comic Spoilers)

    I agree with the marathoning, I watched 1-3 in about a week and actually thought season 2 was the best of the bunch. I would be ok with stretching it to 12 seasons if they don't do that dumpster-bs again. I'm one of the few people who liked the cliffhanger last season, but Glenn dying this time didn't really have an impact on me other than going "It's about damn time". So, the conditions under which 12 seasons would work for me are: - no more fake-deaths - explore this whole Negan-thing over more than a season, since it's kind of interesting to see Rick not be in charge - don't spend one episode over here and the next one over there, just merge all the characters together. I don't want to sit through a pointless Abraham-and-Sascha-are-hiding-in-a-house-episode again, those are lame

    I'm kind of disappointed we never met that woman from the airplane again. I mean, what was the point of those 16 minutes of nothing during the last twd-season?

    And Murray is #1 now, since Raonic withdrew. This is great, I like Murray and he deserves this.

    Well, this is just my personal opinion, maybe he will be stronger than ever next year, but I personally feel like his best days are done and we'll see whether that is the case. The only thing we know is he hasn't been playing particularly well lately, by his own standards. What I meant in regards to Federer's break was that his body clearly couldn't keep up with the strain he put on it and that's why he took a break. This is a concern. Before this season I believed that Federer should keep playing as long as he is a) healthy and b ) in the Top Ten, but one of these conditions is no longer there. For someone who has been playing throughout his entire career without any longer injury breaks, it could be quite difficult for him to come back. We just don't know how he will recover from it, I could see anything from total disaster to total dominance for a few months followed by him flaming out. I tend to believe the former will happen, but either way leads to him retiring next year. Once again, this is just my opinion, and maybe Federer will rise to number 1 again and take another 17 Grand Slams, who knows, I would be happy about that, but this is just how I believe things will turn out.

    I say I'm going to win 30 Grand Slam titles. Saying so doesn't make it true. He needed a break, which is why he took one, and I think it will be difficult to get into the right mindset again after half a year. Federer is still pretty good, but rapidly declining, which means he won't be able to keep this up. He had a good run, but now he has to admit that it's over. He has no unfinished business whatsoever, he can look back at his career proudly and has achieved everything except an Olympic Gold Medal in the singles event. There is no way he will achieve that, so there's no reason to continue. Djokovic peaked in the last couple of years but will now go the same trajectory Federer did some time ago, which means his dominance will slowly but surely be over. Arguably, the last few months have shown some weakness, and that will continue, ending his career in about 3-5 years. You are right about the young talents, they will soon overpower the old guys and start a new era of tennis. I think we could see a domino effect, where the top players of nowadays will retire one after the other once the young ones start winning some slams.

    Federer should retire. He's achieved everything he can and he's just going to get progressively worse. There's no point in him continuing now that his body is starting to be more and more fragile as he gets older. Instead of ending his season he should've retired altogether, but of course he's going to try a comeback next year and then say "Fuck it, I'm too old for this bs." Djokovic will probably follow him soon, I don't think he'll keep up this level for much longer and he's past his prime already.

    It seems so. At least we're both doing reasonably well so far. I was debating whether I should start a new thread for this, maybe more people would've seen it.

    I just realized that Djokovic has played 2 matches and is in the semi-finals. wtf?

    How are four of my players injured, after using up my transfer? How is that possible?

    Fave moment in AFFC?

    That was really funny. I'm rereading this book right now, and Cersei's chapters are always a big highlight for me. Among all the Kingsmoot-nonsense and the like.

    I just joined. My knowledge of the Premier League is very limited, so I'm a little unsure how I will do. Edit: Is this like in the Euros, where you can make substitutions inbetween games of the same matchday?

    Rank the 6 seasons

    4 was really awesome and adapted my favorite part from the books, which is the second half of a Storm of Swords. 2 was great, with Tyrion in charge. 1 is really iconic. 3 was a little slow, but okay. 6 was very inconsistent, at times it was great, but at other times it was just the worst and uncomfortable to watch. Those are the five seasons that have been good. Let's not talk about the other one.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 609?

    There was a one-minute-tracking-shot at one point with horses crashing into each other and a whole lot of mayhem. I love that kind of stuff, because they didn't have to shoot it that way, it's just much more difficult, but they did it anyway and that's awesome and for that I would've given this episode a 10 regardless of what else had happened.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 610?

    This episode was a solid 8. There were a couple of great scenes, but the Sand Snakes are back, and therefor I can't give it a 10. The end of the season would've been a great moment for a montage, and they didn't go for it, so that takes another point away. Arguably though, the entire episode was kind of a montage. We didn't check in with Brienne, and that sucks. She once again didn't really have anything to do the entire season. We also didn't see what Euron is up to. That's why a montage would've been great, you could've shown a quick shot of every major character and where they are, starting with Cersei in the throne room and probably ending with the shot of Dany's fleet.
