    The Americans: The Final Season (Spoilers) pt. 4

    So Stan's girlfriend is just his girlfriend, and he's not actually stuck in a honey trap?
  2. I thought this episode was pretty weak stuff, a result of the frankly terrible decision to stagger the books. Compared to the thrilling events of the past few episodes, everything here just felt a little bit dull.

    Please, God. Anything to save us from another revolting Stretch Armstrong impersonation by CR7.

    Football - To Russia with Löw

    Trophies won in the last five years: Unai Emery: 10 Pep Guardiola: 9 Jose Mourinho: 4 Antonio Conte: 4 Jurgen Klopp: 2 Mauricio Pochettino: 0 I'll say the man likely knows his way around a dressing room.

    You say that, but if the manager just doesn't like Marmite, then he's not gonna want to buy 300,000 jars of it every week.
  6. I imagine part of this deal involves having a chat with Netflix. Bezos will want it all, and rightly so. If they've got any sense, they'll chuck it up there a season at a time. If ever a story was written to be binged, it's this one.

    The interesting question will be his position on Ozil. I reckon he's toast.

    I'm not concerned by the perceived budget limitations. Not sure the squad needs that much work. I'd be happy if we just replaced Xhaka and Mustafi. Actual tactics and actual coaching, along with a dramatic reduction in the size of the players' comfort zone, are gonna improve us no end.

    In the looming context of Mikel Arteta, I'm absolutely delighted with Emery's appointment. Despite Ian Wright's bleating, the guy is a proper manager. Tactician, disciplinarian, winner. Just what we need. Here's a good piece by Amy Lawrence.

    I tried to watch Dune a couple of months back. Holy shit, what an appallingly terrible movie. One thing that seems to be a constant with Lynch is deliberately terrible acting. I guess this is a stylistic choice of his, but I can't imagine why the actors on his projects go along with it.

    He's a freakin' hack. His success is one of the most bewildering things in the history of humanity.

    Laurel or Yanny?

    I have it on good authority that this is a CIA operation. Anyone who hears YANNY is a victim of the MK Ultra program and has just been activated.

    Football: CLeaning up

    I think millions of football fans will disagree with you. No, they didn't. They used English refs to fuck with the best teams.
