Re: The Computer Games Thread

Anyone play Kerbal Space Program? Just doing the tutorials at the moment, which have obviously been designed to make rocket science seem really easy.....

I'm sure when I start trying to do my own they'll all crash immediately!

Think it's going to end up being quite the time sink....

Re: Cycling

I like Tom Dumoulin, I liked his response after the Cavendish incident several years ago, and like that he's always been in very transparent teams. Did you ever watch Clean Spirit, theadore? Based on the Argos Shimano team at the 100th tour with Kittel and Degenkolb as leads. Has some interesting in...

Re: Cycling

Say what you like about him but Froome is making today's stage one of the most spectacular days of racing in modern times (EuroSport's words not mine!) Lone attack, 80km's out, nearly 2 minute gap on the virtual leader Dumoulin (Yates has completely imploded today and is nearly 20 minutes off the p...

Re: Ticket Prices

How do Rovers stand in the league table of ticket prices? I have a pal who supports Macclesfield and he paid more for non league football last year than I am paying for Championship soccer in 1918/19. Something which we should be grateful to Venkys for. Can't help thinking that if someone else boug...

Re: Ticket Prices

I wonder if ticket prices were so dear due to the suspension of pro football?

Apparently we finished bottom. Sigh.

Re: General Election

Yes there's the possibility of contaminants caused from fracking. Scientists are generally undecided yet as to how bad they are. But the same applies to other energy sources: oil wells leak and cause major health issues, perhaps we should compare those to a drug that affected pregnancies to cause de...

Re: General Election

Do you know what's really made Scandanavian policy work so well? Tiny populations. As for democratically elected; do you really think the Labour party elections are democratic? How much do you pay to be a voting member again? :yeahright: I ised to have more respect for Corbyn, I actually thought he ...

Re: Cycling

Thought it would be closer than that after the TT. Good ride by Yates, and Dumoulin perhaps a shade fatigued from his efforts so far.

Probably makes for less exciting riding over the final week, but we'll have to see who attacks him!

Re: Cycling

Froome wins a stage, the Beeb goes nuts, then he has loads more time put into him. Hah.

I reckon Yates will just about lose the pink jersey on Tuesday's TT, but if he can keep his form, should regain whatever defecit (which should be small) in thr big mountains next weekend.

It lacks midfielders full stop. I suppose Delph and Young can also cover further upfield, but I'm struggling to see why he's taking 6 full backs. Not that it will make much difference.
We're going to play two on each side.
