    NJPW World (Streaming Service)

    More Kota Ibushi comments. Seems like he's finally gone exclusive to New Japan and is making it his number one priority. (Source) "I really wanted to lay my cards out and shut down the ‘what about Ibushi?’ talk. Osaka was that chance. The Ibushi institute is on hold, I’m exclusive...This is the last decision I will make in my career. I’ll end my wrestling career in NJPW". Also, on Omega; "Kenny wants to change the world with wrestling. I think to change the world with wrestling, New Japan is the best place to do that. That’s where he and I differ. I can do all that here. I’m all the places I’ve been, NJPW is the highest level...He chose his path. Good luck to him and I’ll be doing my best on my path. We might be together again one day, and I think it’s fine to leave it like that. It’d be cool to be Golden Lovers again one day, although by then we might be too old to use that name". With the top of the card looking a bit drab right now in New Japan, investing all that stock in Ibushi and cashing in with a world title reign would be a significant step in the right direction.

    Can't wait to see Noel do a gypsy promo in front of a brick wall, while he soaks his hands in petrol.

    Thanks for the quick reply! I think I'll give them a shot then. Is it easy enough finding a seat or should I get there early?

    Random Thoughts III.

    Bringing this over from the YouTube thread as I've watched this match last night. And boy oh boy, does it fucking deliver! My MOTY so far, and it's going to take some beating. Everything from the entrances, Starr's ring attire, the crowd, commentary, the match itself... Quintessential pro wrestling. The card is really bloody good too. I've got three more matches to watch later on and I think it's going to be my current show of the year after it's all said and done. OTT are going to have a brilliant year if they keep at this level. Possibly the best company in Europe.

    He's going up against a guy called Lord Blackwell. I mean, this is just incredible.

    I go every month, they are usually a lot of fun. ZSJ is on the first one, and both PAC and ZSJ are on the one on the 31st. Same talent, you'll see Chris Brookes, Aussie Open every month and some shite (Kurtis).

    Can anyone let me know what the shows at the Cockpit are like? I went to the Bristol show and wonder how it would compare to that? Do they use the same talent? I'm debating whether to go up for a road trip to the Northampton show (lured by the poster more than anything else) or try one of the March Cockpit shows instead. Thanks

    Getting too heavy is something I just can't understand, as @Stylin_and_Profilin said, clubs these days can monitor players' diets and their weights and fitness levels so carefully. Any increase in muscle mass would surely be carefully managed. Apparently not in Lukaku's case.

    The cookery thread

    Few bits from me over the last week. Top left is a leek and potato fritatta (with red pepper and feta) that I made for lunches. Next to it is a bach of spinach and ricotta rolls I made. Pre-made puff pastry but otherwise just cooked and cooled the spinach and mixed about 200g (pre cooked weight) with 250g of ricotta, 100g feta and some nutmeg and italian seasoning. Bit of egg wash and parmesan on the top. The two bottom picks are home made fudge. My missus loves fudge so I made it for Valentine's day obviously. Was hard work to constantly stir while trying to get it up to 115 degrees c but I was chuffed with the result. It was a bit too sweet in the end and I wish I'd used brown sugar for a better colour but a good effort if i say so myself. I ordered from a US website called nuts.com a while ago and it's just arrived. I was looking for the mint choc chips to use in cookies and brownies and could only mind them in the US. Given the postage was over $10, I thought I'd fill up the order. The balls are Coffee & Cream malted milk balls. They're really good although it's that fake yank chocolate so could be better. Mini peanut butter cups which the kids love. Also got Astronaut ice cream (pic below). That's weird stuff. It's rock hard to bite but then as it melts in your mouth, you get a really authentic flavour. Crazy shit.

    He's alright to bung on near the end to defend at corners and stick in for cup matches you don't care about. But you can't even bring him on at the end to clobber clearances at so he can control them, win free kicks and waste time. Because despite all his bulk he seems to possess absolutely no strength at all and it was telling they preferred Sanchez at the end of the Chelsea match, who's about half his size and showed far more strength than Lukaku did in that role. Unless he's getting a diet of crosses or balls fed directly into his feet in a channel and a free sight of goal, he's useless.

    He said during Christmas he had a few days off and realised his mind was starting to betray him again, so basically just dived straight back into training. So long as he knows when he's slipping and gets working out, he'll be fine. He calls running his "medicine" because he realises it's impact on clearing his head. His conditioning must be very good, at the minute.

    Bellator Thread - Bellator 215 (Feb. 15th)

    Bellator are wasting no time with this Welterweight Grand Prix. MVP Vs Lima is going down in May. Also on the card, Jake Hager goes 2-0 as Coker matches him up with a JW conquistador, A.J McKee Vs Pat Curran, and Chandler defends the 155lb belt against Patricio Pitbull. That's a damn fine looking card right there. https://www.mmafighting.com/2019/2/19/18232088/douglas-lima-vs-michael-page-jake-hager-return-set-for-bellator-in-may

    Indeed. He said Belgium needed him to bulk up, for some reason. The Kak isn't good enough, technically. He's hardly the most clinical of finishers and his lack of ability to control a bloody football kills good build up play and can slow the team down. He's decent running onto things, or was, but he's a bit immobile now he's huge.

    Minor News & Random Shit

    Yushin Okami is the latest signing by ONE. https://www.mmafighting.com/2019/2/19/18232584/one-championship-announces-signing-of-yushin-okami It seems like it would be a good fit for him at this stage of his career. There aren't many ranked WW or MW fighters that he would be fit to beat in the UFC these days, I wouldn't think.

    Yeah Paul E knew what he was doing. On that, I find Heyman an incredibly fascinating character. I would love a book of his. You would probably need 7 of them, and to hell with a fact checker!

    In reality, I presume it's to avoid burning through the same old shit that's been dreadful for a year. In kayfabe, I can only come up with it's part of the McMahon's promise to shake things up and as they're not assigned to anyone until the next draft, they can float.

    Why are these new lads on both shows? I'm so glad I only watch the odd PPV, this is all headache-inducing.

    I really want Shane to turn on Miz. If he must be on the shows, he should be a douchebag like all the other McMahons. Plus Shane getting his redemption against the slimy Miz is no fun. Who cares about that? Turn Shane into a dick. Have him parade that Best in the World trophy like it matters. Have him reprise his training videos for an undeserved shot at the World Champion. Bring back the Posse. Looked a resonable show in the YouTube highlights. Only thing I didn't like was Andrade facing Black with no build up and losing. He shouldn't lose this much. Cesaro and Sheamus made Johnny and Tomasso look tiny. Good work from The Bar backstage though. Cesaro looked comfortable for once. Genuinely forgot Sanity was a thing. I don't like Mandy Rose. She's no Liv Morgan.

    Another factor is Labours refusal to accept the full IRHA definition of Anti Semitism as generally recognised by most people for a long time. then when they finally adopted it they added a clause saying that "this will not in any way undermine freedom of expression on Israel or the rights of Palestinians". This additional clause is not included in anyone else acceptance and is viewed as a caveat enabling the Labour party members to say what they like about Isreal and Jews in general and hide behind "freedom of expression". It doesnt help his cause when Corbyn wrote to the Bishop of Guildford defending Stephen Sizer and calling him an "Active and well informed individual" Stephen Sizer was the guy who wrote the article " 9/11 - Israel did it"
