RE: [VIDEO] The Orville Season 3

That's more like it.
Now who's going to have it legally over here?

EDIT: Answering my own question it looks like it might be possible to watch it with a UK Disney subscription but via VPN for USA or Canada.
I'll suck it and see on June 2nd I guess.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 21/22 season

Monday I will miss the first half probably without even a phone signal. Depends what I find when I get signal back whether I watch the second half.
I need to retain some trace of sanity.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 21/22 season

No Cedric is not up to it but that was a really soft penalty as for Holding.
Any suggestion the sending off was down to a young team doesn't wash, he's 26 and he was a loose cannon from the whistle.
You could tell by the grin after one tackle with Son he knew what he was doing, a deliberate attempt to wind him up.

I gave up watching after the third goal and just followed it on a live blog, masochism isn't my thing.
Still one point in front but Newcastle away is definitely not going to be a breeze and you'd have to say the other lot are favourites to get two wins from Burnley and Norwich.
Everton may still need a win on the last match to stay up as well.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 21/22 season

I've got a lot of time for Guillem Balague whenever he's on the radio.
Never short of a common sense attitude.

Interesting article, though containing no bombshells, certainly fleshed out the picture of the man.

Quote:
he needs to address such things as his behaviour on the touchline
Comment was made on one of the pods that it was noticeable that in the Leeds match he was much more controlled so let's see how that lasts.

I think there's a bit of a kickabout due shortly so if you'll excuse me I'm just going to pull out what hair is left and start chewing my nails.

RE: FIFA and iPod RIP

Just got my 6th gen out of the drawer and charging it up.
Probably haven't used it for at least 7/8 years so fascinated to see what's on it.
Being an old fart probably still 90% of what I listen to now.

Next job find some ear buds (no Bluetooth).

EDIT: Now playing. Caro Emerald. Not that long since I listened to her, still on my Electro Swing playlist.

So much on the to watch list.

I stopped after episode 1 of series 2.
Stunned by the first series I thought it was just a mess

Wondering if I should revisit.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 21/22 season

He was at a good enough angle to pull a yellow out straight away, just a lousy bit of refing for my money though TBF apart from that incident I thought he did all right.

Absolutely amazed Rapinha, for it was he, stayed on the pitch.
Not that getting down the ref's ear was a red but he looked like he was going to clean out the next Arsenal player he came across.

Bum clenching, palm sweatingly horrible.
We so nearly naused that up completely.

How the hell they thought VAR was needed for that tackle by Ayling leaves me dumbfounded.
Red? it was nearly blood soaked vermillion.


Let's hope we lulled them into a false sense of security because any Tottenham player watching that will have been thinking 'We could have these'. 

I hope we don't play into their hands and press high because they love hitting teams on the break.
We start with a point let's make sure we don't finish with less than that.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall if they had a good long lunch with each other.
Also wonder how often, if at all, they get the chance to see how each other works.
I'd love to see us finish with a win but I don't think Chelsea will stumble in the last match. If they were down to 9 players Emma Hayes would come on the pitch and slide tackle the ref to win it.

Leeds aren't going to be a pushover either, as Arteta's just said they're fighting for their lives. I've a sneaking suspicion though that they will be the ones going down not Everton or Burnley.

Their player Green put a studs up over the ball challenge on Walti which should've been a red.
McCabe kicked the ball at Green while she was still on the ground, not that hard but Clemaron raced over and started shoving.

"you can watch a number of league games on the internet and BBC."

That's helped enormously along with the fact you're now watching matches with decent multi camera coverage.
When I started watching it was just one camera on the halfway line and if it dared to rain you'd see sod all.
You'll probably have to start paying for some matches as the free coverage DAZN provide is obviously to drive up an audience before they ask them to open their wallet/purse.

That's a bit manic.

They don't have it on that edit and the club don't seem to have it up yet but see if you can find Katie McCabe getting carded after a ruck with a Spurs player. Takes no nonsense that girl. 😄
Taken over my favourite player spot since DvD left.

Have you seen the latest Arsenal local trader ad

Even the voice over at the end is keeping it Arsenal, that's Clive Palmer who does a lot on various podcasts but is a regular on The Arsenal Vision podcast.
Very intelligent guy who manages a youth team to a reasonably high level.

RE: [VIDEO] Moon Knight

Did we enjoy that ride?
I did.
Stepped a bit outside the usual Marvel fare and was all the better for that.
Oscar Isaac was outstanding and May Calamawy was given the opportunity to own it a lot more in the last episode and took it with both hands.

I suppose you could say it was what the role required but I found Ethan Hawke a bit monotone all the way through.

Hey Ho for series two.
There's got to be one, budgets and world disasters permitting.

Something I may have missed?
Only saw the second half.

Work interrupted football as I had yesterday off while they fitted a new steering column.

Aren't City getting really Spursy.
They could trip up and let LFC take the league after that shock.

Spurs missed a pen in the last minute but check out Foord's goal to make it 3.0 it's a peach.

One to go but let's concentrate on Leeds first.

RE: [VIDEO] What are you listening to now??? (Music recomendations)

Louis Dunford.
His track The Angel from his EP Popham

Just bought the EP £3.99 but the track can be had for 0.99P.
I should point out that in these days of streaming I never buy music but this was a must have.
So evocative of the area he sings about, North London, and going mental as the Arsenal diaspora are adopting it.
Think Billy Bragg but with a better voice and more musical

"Stressful winning ugly game best left unremembered"

There are things I'd like to remember, apart from the three points.

Mike Dean refing an Arsenal match and nobody's mentioned him in any summary I've heard. He actually missed an opportunity to make it all about him and not only didn't send off Ramsdale but got the decision right by carding Bowen for a dive.

Rob Holding's first Premier league goal and the first time he's scored since 2016. A helluva solid defensive performance as well.

Saka the wonderkid showing maturity in game management and taking a yellow for a deliberate nip at the heels (twice) to stop an attack.

Eddie, although he missed, creating some good chances and being fast and alive enough to run onto a couple and winding up Declan Rice an absolute treat near the end.

Next match we have to hope we stay on form to beat Leeds at home and Liverpool are still desperate enough to stuff Tottenham at Anfield.
Which would mean going into the Derby 5 points ahead of them.

We've still got to go to Newcastle though which is a very difficult trip as evidenced by Liverpool only winning by the one goal.

In our hands though but I'm not risking any money with the bookies on us doing it.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 21/22 season

Just as an update strongest rumour seems to be Gabriel Jesus at City and a strong outsider would be Cody Gakpo who currently plays for PSV Eindhoven.

Arteta and Edu have shown fairly strict adherence to what value they put on a player so whoever they are if they're over priced they wont be buying them.

Not for me.
There's too much baggage to come with him into a young team and I think we can do better.
He's not exactly been pulling up trees lately.

There was a small ripple around Tammy Abraham the other day.

We're going to be linked with pretty well every youngish striker this summer as our need for probably two of them is well known.
