    The Witcher on Netflix 2

    That may be a problem.

    This is more about his size, really, but perhaps Michael Clarke Duncan would do as much? Or is he too old now, I can't remember.

    Rothfuss XIV: The Slow Regard of Luna Lovegood

    I remember having heard something about a second trilogy. At the time, as I recall, it was accepted fact. Then, of course, the books didn't come as advertised, and all talk about it disappeared. And we're left wondering if there ever will be a conclusion, and whether we'll read it. For me, it seems my "bet" that JV Jones will deliver her next book before Rothfuss is looking better by the day. Hah!

    This thread makes me sad. For humanity. Also, for not seeing Idris Elba as Geralt. That would have been amazing. (Side note, I always imagined the "White Wolf" part to refer to Geralt's hair..)

    Football: Remain in Europe

    Fun game 2019, we have Stekelenburg, Baines, Jagielka on outgoing contracts, in addition to loan signings Zouma and Andre Gomes. Should I guess, Stekelenburg is gone. He's very good when he's good, but he's unstable, probably too expensive and not getting younger. Baines seems to be losing his place to Digne, which doesn't bode well, but we have no cover. Unless someone steps up, or is bought, we'll probably extend. Jags .. I think he's gone. He may get an extension, but he would effectively be fourth choice by then, I think (behind Mina, Keane and Holgate). Would keep Zouma if we can, Andre Gomes is still injured.
  6. Not how I read it, but YMMV. I've enjoyed her other two novels as well, but for me this was a step up.
  7. Would love to know why. Themes, structure, characters..? To me, it does in some way remind me of the part of my childhood where I grew up in Ethiopia. Now, given that I'm white, I cannot claim to be on the inside of local culture. But a lot of the Nigerian scene is recognizable, even from half a continent away. May also help that my relationship with the US is from afar. IDK.
  8. I just finished Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's Americanah. I loved the hell out of that book. Trying to think of negatives, but no - it was, for me, a thoroughly excellent read. Reccomended.

    Football: Sarri state of affairs

    Certainly possible. That gives him a year, at least, to show Silva that he should be a part of this team, or, alternately, Silva a year to show Lookman that he really should stick around. I'd like him to stay, as I think he can be really good, and Walcott, while scoring, doesn't look convincing so far.

    Football: Sarri state of affairs

    Think it's a combination here. Lookman was rumoured to be unhappy last year, before he went on loan. Wasn't too surprised - he wasn't getting game time, and the team was imploding. Plus, he fit Samuele's teams (at least) like the word "integrity" fits Trump (yeah, f*ck Samuele. Still.). Then he goes to Germany, and succeeds. I reckon I'd be happy (if that was me) to continue there. However, both Brands and Silva have spoken highly of him, and clearly want to keep him, so - given he has a contract - he has to stay. But now he has different competition - Richarlison and Bernard, plus Walcott. Difficult. Add in that we've played more minutes with 10 men than 11 away so far, and the fact that he's really not the best defender we have in midfield, and I can understand why he hasn't gotten a chance yet. But I can also understand that he wishes to return to where he was succeeding.

    Strange game. Silly by Richarlison, then we suddenly play well - on the counter, something we really didn't do last year. But we're struggling at the back, especially with Keane not being fast enough for the high line we're playing. That said, I really hope he's not seriously injured. And I hope we'll continue looking entertaining. After Samuele, even these draws feel like heaven.

    Football: 3rd Season Meltdown

    Summer is over, and again I am filled with irrational hope that Everton are going to improve and challenge for something. It doesn't help that United look unfinished so far... Richarlison looks good, at least.

    We will blame this on the skin spy in yellow. Also, on our generals, who failed to snuff out the Zeum danger.
  14. I would think so. Had I truly cared for my country, I would be furious. Anyway, General Krychowiak strikes for the Ordeal. The Zeum are in disarray!
  15. Surprise attack down our left flank. Enemies hidden in sorcery charged down our forces and struck a blow.
