  1. The performances are great, but 'genius who can be abusive' is a trope that is awful and not helpful. I know the movie tries to deconstruct that a bit, but it does not do it well enough. I have nothing against the performances and I usually like Anderson, but man, I think this movie has a lot of issues when it comes to the women in the film.
  2. Watched Phantom Thread - and man, how did people like this movie? How is called a masterpiece? Kristy Puchko nails this movie in this review. It is very weird to see the acclaim this film got. https://www.riotmaterial.com/p-t-andersons-phantom-thread-couldnt-come-at-a-worse-time/

    Sigh. I totally forgot it was the international break. Now I'm sad

    Seems to have been plenty of half decent calls for a penalty for City in this game.

    Man, that was a fun second half.

    Why would you even put out a statement through twitter. Juventus are clowns. I don't know who 'Mason Mount' is but I can't stop laughing at the name.

    Yeah, but they don't say no if the nomination is killed by 2 republicans ( this is obviously to take flake on his word)

    Yeah, it sounds like they're all a no unless this 1 week investigation takes place.

    It really is barely a surprise. Apparently Lindsey Graham got uproarious applause when he walked into a chamber of republican representatives

    I don't think he has the positional discipline, or if he does, he hasn't shown it in years. I also don't think he's good at setting *any* sort of tempo, or is as good technically as Xhaka is in picking up the ball and distributing it from deep. Edit: I think tempo is quite important, arteta did it when Ramsey played beside him. I know you don't like Xhaka, but for both our coaches, he's basically started every game since he's come into the team, which I think kinda shows his importance ( I do think criticism of his mistakes is totally fair though)

    Yeah, no, those two are very different players. This whole notion that Ramsey hasn't been used correctly in our team is kinda hogwash and basically from people who don't really watch Arsenal or Ramsey There just isn't place for him in a midfield two, every option is better because he doesn't give us *any* security at the back in a two, you need a 3 to play him, but if you play a 3, you need Ozil not to be one of them. I don't think Ramsey is good enough as 10, he never has been for us. He has the potential to be an important player, but honestly, I kinda have faith that Iwobi might step up in Ramsey's position.

    Kinda okay with Ramsey moving on, even though I'm probably his biggest fan on the board. Still not *entirely* sure he will go, but it looks like he will.

    I don't know. I think 1. The team is used to the runs he is making 2. He's come back *way* better after his injury last year, he's been playing like this since his return 3. It's actually not his runs that have been impressive, it's his build up play. He's holding onto the ball way better because he's way more physical than he was when he got here ( something Auba can't do, but again, Auba is relatively new) I don't think it has much to do with wenger or emery, I think it's more down to him getting used to the league & the team.

    Man, Lacazette is *way* better than I thought he was going to be. Rob Holding was good too. Maybe some day we'll start a game well.
