For all the talk of how good this generation of golfers is Koepka is blowing them all away... Tiger esque really he’s been phenomenal hard to see anyone bridging the gap or to see Brooks come back the field.

It’ll make for a boring tournament but that’s the fields fault and certainly not Koepka’s!

Didn't want play last time round, i wouldn't give him the option this time round.

I presume you wouldn't want Shane Lowry playing either.

Brooks flying

p***k!! He always ruins it . . .

I actually don't mind him except the fact that I never bet him when he wins!! Have J Day/Rahm/Oosthuizen this time which is very different from my regular Rory/Spieth bet but that's been a busted flush for a while now.

Black Mirror June 5th!!!!

The cast looks very decent with Topher Grace/Miley Cyrus/Andrew Scott/Anthony Mackie.

It will hopefully be better than Bandersnatch which was alright as a concept but never really took hold.

This is what a team player does.

Not about Sean Cox apparently. It's about the fighting between Liverpool and Madrid fans in Kiev. We all remember that, right??

Not as good a story though as making a tenuous link to something different and more outrageous ... they’ve little to be getting offended about the Scousers!!

I remember loving Heroes for the first 2 series then it just got too complicated and fizzled out . . . same with Prison Break.

GOT could have done with a few extra episodes to flesh the thing out but it's still great TV and better than anything about at the minute. Although Chernobyl made a strong start last week!

May I ask what have the SDLP and the UUP done wrong in comparison to the extreme parties in the North?

It’s not as is the SDLP have murdered anyone, have they?
Genuinely curious.

It's how you sell it . . . Sinn Fein could never have the support of ordinary Nationalists when the IRA was still engaged in armed struggle. When they gave it up Sinn Fein portrayed themselves as the peacemakers who wanted a United Ireland through political means.

SDLP never really pushed for a United Ireland hard enough so they lost a lot of support that way and once they lost big personalities like Hume and Mallon they were always going to struggle. McDevitt offered them some hope but then he was too principled for stepping down for something which in todays politics would barely cause a ripple!!!

Likewise the DUP were hard liners taking a back seat to the UUP crying down the Good Friday agreement but then there were 29% odd against it and mostly Unionist so they hoovered those up and then went into Government with Sinn Fein anyway!!!

Think I would rather watch paint drying.

Any word of a candidate’s debate? These candidates need to be properly exposed. Could play to Morrice’s strength

Sure they were all on UTV last night!!!

Naomi will be getting my vote. . .

Yeah, when there's 4 seconds on the clock, they should really just keep working away until they get an open look or a simple layup.

Same in American football. I mean, nobody should ever try a hail Mary when there's an open slant route to pick you up 4 yards. Or try an onside kick. They almost never work.


Slightly missing the point I feel. Reaction to it sends out the wrong message "Kawhi called the series" was the main comment. Meaning he took it into his own hands and decided - I'm going to win this. He got lucky. Sports media is full of all these terms like clutch and bottler which are largely bullsit narratives. He's probably a victim to this and felt he HAD to do this as he's the big name player. I strongly disagree with it.

That's what American sports is about "big players make big plays".

It was class and we've seen Lebron/Jordan/Steph make these types of shots in the last moments of games. . . sure they've missed plenty but Kawhi had a second on the clock and nothing to lose in going for it so why not??

Really disappointed in that episode. I called the Mad Queen thing along time ago as there were many many hints at it. However, the plot was so clichéd and corny. The moment Euron came out of the water to meet Jamie and Clegane bowl had me reaching for the vomit bucket.

The whole valuquar prophecy went to shite and then fact that the dragon somehow managed to neutralise all the scorpions within minutes when last week they were sitting ducks was stupid. Also, since when has dragon flame turned into war grade explosives? Blowing out 20 feet block walls like they were made of matchsticks.

Overall, a load of shite.

You’ve gotta love GOT when people think the flames the dragon breathes are too unrealistic!!!

I’ve been really disappointed with this series. Far too much focus on the visuals and too little to the storylines. Cleganebowl was straight out of a poor Hollywood movie. The early series were brilliant due to the intricacies of the stories and the plot twists. This series much more predicable.

Go on give us your prediction for next week so . . .
