Good fight, Saunders did way better than expected but there was no way he was winning that fight with four to go after what had just happened.

I suppose all the hard men on this thread will be out for blood again over a guy with a broken face retiring on his stool.

Christ this Eoghan Harris interview is even better than the Maria Bailey one. McInerney allowed him to make an absolute twat (well, more of one) of himself.

Good shout on The Wire. I also only watched the first two seasons (the missus wasn't pushed about it, so it doesn't leave me much opportunity!).

Throw her in the bin.


I read that season 2 (the Polish dockworkers season) was probably the most poorly rated, and I thought that was excellent. So definitely must try to find some time.

Season 2 is outstanding and the importance of it and its place in the story only really comes out late in season 4 and then season 5. It was so radically different to season 1 that people thought it was poor in comparison.

Load of bollocks.

Who is H then? LOD has to be the most overrated programme this past few years.

Thought I was the only one left hanging. Worst finale to a big show I've watched.

Still nothing on the entire final season of GoT.

If you have seen Man in the High Castle on Amazon, then you wouldn't say this was the worst ending.

Watched the first season and thoroughly enjoyed it. Got to the end of the second and realised I didn't really know what was happening as I'd spent loads of it on my phone because it was all very boring. Watched about 10 minutes of the first episode of S3 and gave up completely.

Tennyson stopped badly in the first round. Stratton was meant to be an unknown who could punch and that's exactly how it turned out.

Anna Maxwell Martin is brilliant as Carmichael. Fantastic actress.. Highly recommend her show Motherland (written by Sharon Horgan and, originally, Graham Linehan).

So much faux outrage over this from fans. They'll still watch and fork out whatever insane subscription fee is required to do so on DAZN or whatever and they'll still buy season tickets and the stadia will all be full. Until fans actually start voting with their wallets, no meaningful change will ever happen. Look at the state of so many Newcastle fans and prominent Newcastle journalists trying to argue that there's absolutely nothing wrong with MBS buying the club.

Perhaps United fans can buy some green and gold scarves again?

Fans don’t want change. They want things to stay the way they are. The model where we can see 3rd tier Leicester City competing in the last 16 of the European Cup within 6 years.

Ffs. Third tier Leicester City who were bought by a Thai billionaire?!
Ah come on. What did that Leicester team cost compared to United/City/Chelsea teams?

Come on what? It's undeniably a great against-the-odds story. It's also undeniable that it was underwritten by external money that allowed them to climb the divisions. Pretending otherwise is daft

That the "opportunity exists" on an equal and shared basis is a complete fabrication. The opportunity only exists to historically relevant, large successful clubs, or those backed by wealthy benefactors, or both.

Leicester could only take that opportunity (an incredible achievement) due to having a wealthy owner. Swindon Town aren't winning the PL. Ever. Despite the fact that the opportunity exists for them.

This is laughable. Outrage over the rich wanting to be richer so fans can pretend that anything is possible, using Leicester as an example. Because that's what fans want. Fairytales.

As Leicester and Man City have shown, progress through the ranks has always been possible


Good grief, do people actually believe this pony?! Man City have shown what's possible? To who? Other clubs owned by petrostates?!

It's an absolute load of cliché ridden, poorly written and, at times, terribly acted pile of w**k. Hastings is basically written as a parody of himself these days with his catchphrases popping up multiple times every episode. Don't understand the hype about Mercurio as a writer at all. Bodyguard was shite too. The Wire this most certainly is not. Stephen Graham was the best thing by a mile about the show through its run to date, followed by Thandie Newtown and Keeley Hawes. Kelly MacDonald is crap.

None of which prevents it from being a massively entertaining, gripping and frequently nail-biting show.
