well, that was miles off :roll: sordid affair, though there were clear chances on both sides the teams were creative mainly in finding ways not to score

Re: Futbol '22-'23

peace! :D i didn't mean to suggest conte had ordered his men to leave nice spaces outside the box for shooting, and yes, final passes were abysmal and then also kulu will return ... many recent first halfs have looked like this, though, with energy levels pretty low when opponents have the ball, sta...

Re: Futbol '22-'23

hm. dropping really deep but still being afraid of catching an opponent's breath is maybe not a promising tactic. the most worrying thing though is if the half-time dressing down no longer works.

Re: Recently Watched Films 2022

Are you a Herzog fan in general, Lutz? I think you have to be one, i.e. prepared to accept those numerous eccentricities, to get anything out of his stuff. I remember enjoying this - I was rather surprised in fact to reread my own somewhat excessively elogious comments above - but I do take your po...

Re: fade-outs

hi, thanks, it's cool somebody is enjoying these. yes, it's still working in some browsers/on some devices, on other's there's just a black rectangle. these are flash-embedded so it's only going to get worse.

Re: Futbol '22-'23

who needs city as a litmus test when they have sporting. also leicester had better x-goals while being convincingly beaten? i think you're right spurs do look tougher ... at least after the break with a good chiding by conte still ringing in their ears. happy for son but can this continue when folks...

Re: Futbol '22-'23

of course it's totally unfair donetsk were allowed to play in camouflage.

marco rose. yawn. i guess it will more or less work. it's about deferring becoming a mid-table team season by season now.

spurs' results are so much better than their game.

I can"t see the image (can you stick it in here, or send a link?), but you said something about Brialy.. intrigued! Pop it up, let's have a look oh no! i checked on a different browser and can't see the videos myself (something to do with flash no longer being supported i wager). so time to pack up...

Re: Futbol '22-'23

that chelsea game was fun. spurs were so bad but we never feared they'd lose because (for obvious reasons) chelsea have such a shaky backline. i don't think tüchel can fix them (though he can make them run such pretty paths), he'll probably have used himself up being up-beat and dignified during the...

Re: fade-outs

nothing remarkable about the fade-out in itself, just that it's part of such a well thought out structure. first the whole thing seems to meander, offering a couple of half-hooks before it settles on "if you won't go with me" as the proper hook, alternating it with different parts, then dissolving t...

Re: fade-outs

ok, the most spectacular thing here is how much the band don't get the groove of the original ... i thought maybe a bunch of ofays, but no it's cornell dupree, jimmy johnson, etc. the ofay up front (of black saint and sinner lady fame) and his fidgety soloing style don't help but still. the fade-out...

Re: fade-outs

not the biggest fan of his later work, but this is a killer song. livin' ain't easy when you're black and greasy. and it has a programmatic fade-out: first the band fade to leave the singer indeed out here all alone, spookily, and then they return so everybody can fade out into the sunset together. ...

Re: Futbol '22-'23

i have no clue but it's hard to believe in all the renaissances supposedly on the menu ... spurs will hit a rough spot again and conte will find it beneath him to work their way out of it ... i don't believe in arteta enough to think he can build a great team, nor in ten hag that he can solve man u,...
