    I don't know why, but I'm really looking forward to this weeks 'Brawl For All' episode. It feels like it will be more lighthearted compared to previous episodes.

    Probably because its light hearted and you can fully enjoy the ridiculousness of it guilt free. At least that is why I am looking forward to it.

    He probably was considered the favourite just because of the timing and the recent form they’d both shown. Martin was coming off 4 straight knockout wins whereas Leben had lost two on the bounce. It’s a ‘what have you done lately?’ business. 

    Right time right moment. I like that snapshot into the time in honesty. Really hits the nostalgia funny bone. I've been rewatching some of my favourite fights from around about this time sporadically with my wife the last couple of nights.

    Wondering where one if my personal favourites Tyson Griffin vs Frankie Edgar is going to place. Was my go to fight to show interested non-fans for years. 

  3. Watched the Leben vs Martin fight last night and I was surprised that the commentators made it seem like Martin was the heavy favourite going in.


    Was this accurate? Obviously Leben retrospectively and with his TUF appearance has a far more lasting memory and I only had a fleeting knowledge of Terry Martin so I was surprised by that.

    It's all good.

    On a resolution front I've (re)subscribed to a few Patreons (not naked lady ones, although I was tempted) and bought an unglodly amount of art work from stay at home cons to support artists I love as their con income streams were torn out from under them.  I don't have enough wall space for 1/10th of it so everyone's getting art prints for Christmas :)  I'm not sure that my 75 year old aunt is going to really love the Rey from The Last Jedi print but she can always betroth it to me in her will.

    Done something very similar. Not a huge con goer but had a couple planned for this year so spent most of what expected to art.

    Part of one of my all-time favourite moments In wrestling, when him and regal were both shitting their pants and trying to get the other to climb a ladder because they are proper wrestlers and panto villains. 

    IIRC that was the match which had another of my favourite moments in Joey Mercury's face imploding. 

    If it wasn't nominated that would be an excellent shout for great but minor moments that don't get mentioned enough.

  6. I'm certain I've mentioned before that I'm an NHS employee and live in Scotland so I'm sure this isn't relevant for the majority but I just wanted to say to those Bagpipers playing whilst everyone was clapping at 8...... your spoiling it for everyone.

    The thing I'm dreading the most about this whole situation is the town centres the day we're told the lockdown is over, businesses are allowed to reopen and we can all go back to work. It's going to be absolute carnage. It'll be like Mad Friday times a million. 

    Honestly mate the joy at things beginning to return to normal is going to be followed with a flood of relief and ecstasy without trying to exaggerate.  I cant wait.

    Yep, he was our replacement for Nicolas Anelka when he moved to Real Madrid. We signed him to be our main striker and at the same time we signed some winger called Thierry Henry. 

    Andy Cole came through our youth ranks and only played one league game before we sold him to Bristol. 

    @Frankie Crisp curiously, I don't remember Davis at Palace, yet I remember him at Barnet!

    Ok I feel a touch better, I was thinking he had joined end of career and had missed it.

    I was bored once and put together some 'they played for them?' XIs. Some of my favourites include:

    Davor Suker- West Ham

    George Weah- Chelsea AND City

    Jim Leighton & Andy Cole- Arsenal 

    McManaman- City

    Pletikosa- Spurs

    Mancini- Leicester (they also had J-Lingz and Kane on loan. And Cambiasso, but I remember that vividly)

    Materazzi- Everton 

    Andy Cole at Arsenal. Mind fucking Blown.

    I don't think you're dicks, but after yesterday's PM address I would definitely stop that arrangement going forward to be honest. As hard as it might be. I know it's not the same, but face time them with your fairy daughter regularly instead. 

    Echo this 100% . Not selfish and incredibly difficult but its things like these we all need to sacrifice for self isolation to work.

    If your parents are anything like mine and well you need to be the one to make that decision to protect them.

    I'm just happy to hear that spraying medicine in the air works! Im off into the garden to spray my inhaler around, might even leave a few paracetamol lying about to make sure

    I know you are joking and it is in no way aimed at you but it just reminded me. I work in Primary Care and I've encountered several people who are unable to access there inhalers due to people over ordering there there normap volume or ordering inhalers they don't actually need.

    It won't protect you against Covid and the people who do need it may not have access to what is essentially life dependant medication. So if you are one of those people doing this from the bottom of my heart please stop being a selfish cunt.
