Re: Overrated cities?

I found New York to be an ugly, dirty, surprisingly soulless shithole . It's like a giant shopping mall, which I suppose is fine if that's your thing, but if you're not into musical theatre there's nothing there that can't be found in any other major North American city. I will concede that it seem...

Re: End of the Monopoly? Instagram and WhatsApp to be removed from Facebook ownership?

Definitely needs to be broken up. Still don't know why they were allowed to buy WhatsApp.

Amazon also should be broken up. AWS should be split from the rest of the company.

Re: Player of the decade

Parisse ahead of Read? Even Heaslip was better this decade.

Big fan of BOD but he retired in 2014 and spent 2012/13 either injured or with a shit ireland team. Surely there was a more deserving second centre.

Re: Bulldog Memorial Cup: 2020 Masters

For all the hype, Bryson does not hit that much further than the others. Rahm is usually within 20 yards of him and his second is usually closer to the pin.

Really weird watching lads get eagle putts with no roar from the crowd.

What makes him such a great manager? Spending 200 million on attacking talent?
I think there's very little evidence he has done much to the shape this team. He inherited a team that finished 3rd under Sarri and then struggled to finish top 4.

Re: The OFFICIAL English and European Football (soccer) thread

Everton won't win it. Squad depth isn't there really to last a full season. If 2 of Allan, Doucoure, Gomes, Digne or Rodrigues are injured for a prolonged spell, the team will really struggle.

Top 4 is a real possibility since a lot of the top teams seem so inconsistent
