    Premier League 15-16

    With Chelsea's implosion there's a good opportunity for someone else to have a run at the title and Leicester have given themselves a real chance. My hunch is that they'd be vulnerable to Vardy or Mahrez getting injured, but they have the opportunity to strengthen in January. Leicester have got...

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    Episode VII is pretty good.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    Am planning to go, not sure when. The buzz seems quite promising, so I'm more optimistic than I was a couple of weeks ago. I thought the trailers were good, but were definitely pitched to entice people who enjoyed the original trilogy and thought the prequels were crap.

    $149 GTX 750 Ti Plays Titanfall better than Xbone

    I doubt the GTX 750 Ti could support four monitors, unless they were CGA ;) I had to upgrade my BIOS because I got no video output with the card in, either from the motherboard or the GTX 750 Ti. I have an Intel i5-2500K (Sandy Bridge) in a Asus Rock Z68 motherboard. I switched to the GTX...

    $149 GTX 750 Ti Plays Titanfall better than Xbone

    I've been running one for a while now and haven't had any problems. You may not be surprised to hear that I've mostly been been playing Elite so can't comment on its performance with any other games ;) I have an i5-2500K and had to flash my motherboards BIOS in order to get it to work. The other...

    $149 GTX 750 Ti Plays Titanfall better than Xbone

    So the new Maxwell cards are finally out. Anyone thinking of upgrading? I'll wait until the price comes down as I'd like to know what the recommended specs for the OR are going to be before buying a new card. Plus I guess I might want a 4K monitor to go with a new card and I think I'll need a...

    Steven Moffat/Matt Smith Doctor Who

    Yeah, I agree. It was alright, but nothing to get too excited about.

    Steven Moffat/Matt Smith Doctor Who

    That's a bit of miserable comment, unless he was joking of course. I guess everyone loves it, because it was a great episode and introduced the only truly memorable villains since they rebooted the series (as far as I can recall). If you're hankering after David Tennant then apparently he's...

    The Hobbit

    I suppose it was reasonable to cut out Tom Bombadil for the sake of brevity, but Tom Baker would have been perfect... I enjoyed the films, but thought they could have replaced all the pointless 'go west' stuff at the end for the Scouring of the Shire.

    US Olympic team uniforms scandal

    I think that was the Czechs. They also had blue brollies, so I assume that the welly and brolly combination was taking the piss out of the British weather. So top marks to them!

    US Olympic team uniforms scandal

    Well I don't think USA was anywhere near in contention for the gold medal for worst outfit of the parade, that had to be between us and the Swedes. Stella McCartney's ensemble was terrible and Sweden look like they forgot and picked something up from Next instead.

    More bad calls at the Blown Cup -- Is it time for goal line technology?

    It does matter to the refs cos if they make a stupid mistake then they go home as well. I would be surprised if the refs that refereed the England/Germany and Mexico/Argentina games get to do another one this tournament. Reffing the World Cup final is a pretty big deal. There's a certain Russian...

    World Cup 2010 : who's gonna win the thing ??

    We had our revenge of sorts in 2002, I just don't want a team led by a man who cheated at two World Cups to win another as a manager.

    World Cup 2010 : who's gonna win the thing ??

    Nicely prescient. Best or only team won. Dear Germany. Please beat Argentina in the quarter-finals.

    World Cup 2010 : who's gonna win the thing ??

    I have no problem with this either, having supported Everton for more years than I care to remember I fully appreciate the pinching of a jammy 1-0 win. However, in the game the other night Greece had to win in order to get through and they didn't even bother to try. They might as well have not...

    World Cup 2010 : who's gonna win the thing ??

    The Greeks should be banned from playing football. I can't believe they made me cheer an Argentine goal. How on Earth did they win Euro 2004.

    World Cup 2010 : who's gonna win the thing ??

    I think the Uruguayians may have been a little lucky with their first two goals. The first one was going over when it left Forlan's boot, but took a deflection off one of the SA defenders. For the penalty, I think the ball took a touch off an Uruguayian player on it's way through, the guy was...

    World Cup 2010.....USA v England....

    Oh don't. The Sun was apparently giving away 5000 of them earlier in the week. Next season's going to be a nightmare. Don't worry about Lords though, they already ban musical instruments, fancy dress etc. Although they do make an exception for that 'beautiful' MCC blazer of course...
