  1. Sex Education season 3 drops tomorrow. Pumped for that. As for Dexter, I watched the trailer and I'm cautiously optimistic. I believe the guy that was involved in the early good seasons of Dexter is involved in this reboot (Scott Reynolds). Agreed on seasons 1, 2, and 4 being amazing. I watched Wind River again over the weekend. Can't recommend it enough. It's on Netflix if you haven't seen it before.
  2. I like the Saul move. We got a Jorginho and Kante scare against Liverpool. Just Kovacic behind them with Gilmour on loan. A necessary move and not a bad buy option either. Speaking of Kante he left the French squad due to the ankle injury he aggravated Saturday. Glad cooler heads prevailed. Thought Deschamps was gonna run him into the ground this week.
  3. I watched all the Netflix Fear movies the past couple weeks. Overall I enjoyed them. The first two kinda emulated slashers for the years they took place in, and the last one showed more-so the origin of the story as a whole. I'm a sucker for anything taking place in the 90's so the first one was my favorite.
  4. Steelers adding Melvin Ingram on a one year deal. Injury prone and 32, but if healthy he's an asset on the edge. We'll need that with Dupree going to the Titans and Highsmith coming into his second year. I'm sure TJ Watt will be happy.
  5. Not too shabby. Almost unfair how they'll be compared to the success that Vegas has had.
  6. I agree. Werner leading the line isn't exactly an abundance of goals based on what we saw last season. Need some backup. I'm hoping Werner can improve on his scoring with a competent coach and an actual preseason without restrictions. May just do him some good.
  7. Yeah anything we get from Silva is house money at this point. I just don't like the idea of offloading talent in their early 20's in a position that we've had trouble with in recent years till Tuchel's arrival. What if Tuchel has a shit season, gets sacked, now we're stuck with Rudiger and Christensen that were wildly inconsistent prior to Tuchel being hired? That makes me uneasy. Either or, I understand the need to raise funds for big transfers, so worth the roll of the dice. Wouldn't it make more sense for them to sell Haaland now opposed to next summer when his release clause triggers for a far less amount? That's why I'm saying from their perspective to take about 100M or so for Haaland, get CHO and TA, let them prosper, and sell them if they wish for a ton of money like they've done with Dembele, Pulisic, Auba, etc. I get that their performance isn't guaranteed but the Bundesliga will likely be more welcoming to goal scorers opposed to PL.
  8. Was disappointed that W Earl Brown wasn't cast as Bill. I wasn't counting on a lot of voice actors to play themselves in the show (though they did with Marlene), but Bill/Earl Brown seemed like a slam dunk considering his HBO ties. I have faith nonetheless. Based on the description of Pierce playing a rebel in a quarantine zone, would venture to say he is playing some form of Robert.
  9. Very well would could be. I still think highly of CHO but wonder if/when he'll ever get a solid chance that isn't dependent on injury/match competition. The system we run now doesn't do him much favor being tucked inside, or playing at wing back. Also reading that Marc Guehi may be on his way to CP permanently. He played well at Swansea last season and I was looking forward to seeing how he'd progress this year. He'll be the second young academy CB we send off permanently after Tomori. Rudiger, Christensen, Silva all have one year left on their contracts so I'm not a fan of sending the young talent away, but one must afford Haaland somehow I suppose.
  10. Chelsea reportedly offering Tammy Abraham and CHO as part of the deal for Haaland, rejected from what I read. I'm biased here, but from Dortmund's perspective, I can see that being a lucrative deal. Tammy and CHO are 23 and 20 respectively. I can see a world where they go to the Bundesliga and do quite well putting the ball in the back of the net. Young talent is what Dortmund do best with. They get TA and CHO, they have a couple productive seasons, and then flip them to a bigger team. I just wonder what the cash is once we would throw TA and CHO in. I would imagine Dortmund would still want 100-115M.
  11. Late to this but enjoyed the game Saturday. Thought Chelsea were the better side and should've scored a couple more goals. It's fucking comical at how predictable the misses from Werner are. Was watching the game with my dad who doesn't give a damn about the sport and even he commented about the first half misses. At this point we pretty much spent good money on a guy that's not going to rack up the goal tally he had in the Bundesliga, but his speed still creates chances, so it's like you have to play him. He's not gonna get much more time though. Already talking about replacements up top. Impressive how quickly Tuchel remedied our defensive woes which have plagued us for the past couple seasons. Set a record for least goals conceded in the CL with 4 in 13 games. Yeah, we didn't play the most offensively gifted teams in the knockout stages, but the improvement was evident. Didn't have a challenging group either. Felt bad that Thiago had to go out but pretty much split halves with the guy that filled in superbly for him when he went down some months back in Christensen. Rudiger was dominant as he's been since Tuchel took over. The main gripe I always had with him was his errors, which seem to be in the past for now besides the own goal he had when we made the manager change. Chilwell/James have done well at wingback, which was both new to them this year. Don't prefer when TT puts Azpi at RWB as it seems like a more natural position for James and better suited for his age, but he's played incredibly well and was happy to see him lift the trophy at the end. True leader. Can't forget Mendy either who may have been the best signing last summer when you consider how terrible Kepa was, and the amount of clean sheets Mendy has put up. You don't see the mental errors from him in particular. We've proven on a given night we can play with the best in the league as we've beaten City 3 times now in the past 6 weeks in 3 different comps. Just need to prove next year we can keep up August-May. Would like to see us get a legit striker that will score goals and not an expensive utility forward like Werner. The Declan Rice buzz won't stop, and think he'd play well in our midfield which would likely mean letting Jorginho go. I prefer Kovacic to him. Would loan Gilmore out to get playing time. Unsure what to do with CHO as the guy can't get on the field and I don't think the current system favors his skillset out wide. Ziyech is also another question mark. Paid money for a guy that gets to play in cup competitions. Need to offload Barkley and RLC imo. Still think we need another CB as even though AC, Silva, and Rudiger have played lights out under TT, one is gonna be 37 and the other two have shown a lot of inconsistency in their time at Chelsea. As for Conte, surprised to hear the links to Spurs. Didn't get the impression that he enjoyed England. Talked a lot about his family and missing Italy. Guess he's running out of options as all the other posts have filled and he seems to have a 2-3 year shelf life with a club. Hope he has the same fate there as Mourinho.
