    SouthStandDan got a reaction from Alpha in 'It's a long season'   
    I look back at Fulham a couple of seasons ago. They were 15th at the start of December and went on that storming 5 month unbeaten run. I see no reason why we can't be higher than 15th in the table by December. When was the last time Derby had a fantastic start to the season, under NC when we won a few games in a row?
    Not counting the Forest game since Cocu didn't take it seriously, Brentford are the only team to properly boss us around this season for the whole game. Swansea we could have won, West Brom we should have beat them, Bristol City we gifted them a head start.
    Another fan at work said this reminded him of Pearson's start to the season. I disagree. Every game we played with him in charge, we looked terrible in every minute of every game, it was embarrassing to watch. We are nothing as bad as that start. I've seen much worse than this.
    Chin up folks!

    Played the PES 2020 demo last night. Seriously impressed with the gameplay. It feels much slower and realistic than FIFA ever has. For example, ground passing isn't all flat to the turf, if you hold the button for long enough, the ball goes airborne and is aimed at thigh height (like it would be in a real game if you smashed it hard to a teammate). Finishing feels tougher as well and the goalkeepers don't magically forget their positioning unlike FIA.
    Think PES has found the niche in the market, a good single player career mode. It'll be a brilliant alternative for gamers. Go for FIFA if you want to play more online i.e. Ultimate Team and for playing with mates. For hermits like me who don't have many gamer friends, PES looks to be my choice this year.

    SouthStandDan got a reaction from taffyram in EFL order independent valuation of Pride Park   
    Good on the EFL for investigating this.
    Shame they couldn’t investigate clubs like Bury who were clearly on the brink of the abyss. Complete incompetent halfwits. Too busy worrying about clubs like us who are financially stable...... seriously who runs these organisations? If they’re that bothered about the valuation of a football ground, they can quite easily start looking at these dodgy owners who aren’t keeping their clubs in the black.

    Haven't played a football game since Fifa 17. Used to buy one every year but I'd say ever since they bought in UT, it's very stale. At least FIFA 20 they've had a look Volta (Fifa Street Mode) which does look fun and something a little different. But all gaming now is online based and that's why I don't play games as much now.
    Many developers don't care about single player campaigns anymore, when was the last time Fifa had a decent career mode? It's been broken for a long time, because they've focused on Ultimate Team, requiring gamers to spend even more money to buy good players. I hate that in gaming culture. I want to buy a great game, then have the choice of buying additional content, not buy a half arsed game (Star Wars Battlefront) and find out you need to spend another £20-30 to have full game access.

    Looking forward to PES 20. 
    There was a brief period where Fifa was the better game but back to Pes now. 
    I just download the option file for pes and it's all kitted up properly anyway. I think Fifa looks great right up until kick off. It sounds great too but pes is just a better game. When you've made it look licensed and official then you don't really miss the presentation of Fifa. 
    Fifa scripting seems worse too. You can always tell when the AI will score.

    SouthStandDan reacted to Dappled Ram in The Politics Thread 2019   
    So once again David Cameron is nowhere to be seen having been the architect of this disgraceful mess. Why he didn't do his research and realise that the country would be split virtually down the middle is unbelievable. If you won't like the answer don't ask the question! Out of the people who bothered to vote the majority voted leave albeit a small majority. At this point surely common sense would suggest that they work together to get us the best deal. History teaches us that when people are united they achieve more. However our politicians behave like spoilt children throwing their toys out the pram and they continue to do so. Their behaviour shows contempt for democracy and it is very difficult to see where we go from here. We must be a laughing stock with the rest of the world. As has already been said the majority of parliament have no intention of delivering on the referendum so why are we going through the farce of trying to negotiate any kind if deal. They lack the guts to say they really want to go against the people's referendum. What I find so sad is the number of people who are so disillusionedthat they say they will never vote again.

    So in the incoming election next month, I'm not voting for any party. None of them have convinced me they will sort out Brexit. I'll listen to my independent candidates in my local area and hear their ideas.
    Sick of this mess. Every time I wake up in the morning, I feel like Bill Murray. £70-80k a year these MP's get paid? Couldn't lead a shift behind a bar these lot. Absolute drivel.
    Independent it is then.
