    Gavin and Stacey is iconic amongst my generation.

    I get the feeling that Brienne's number is up. Her being made a knight and her comment about dying with honour felt like the end of her story.
    I also got the feeling about Jorah. His work is done, having re-established Daenerys' trust in Tyrion.

    This is ducking brilliant so far (45 minutes in). I’ve had a smile on my face for about half an hour. Even Ghost has had some screen time.

    Why have they lined up the army OUTSIDE the castle walls? They’ve got dragon glass in the arrows & spears plus 2 dragons. No need to risk the soldiers when they can hit them from behind the walls. Jon Snow is no Hannibal Barca it seems! They all deserve to die! #teamnightking

    Game of thrones is the reason I see a silver lining to Alzheimer’s. One day I’ll be old and get Alzheimer’s, and then I can watch game of thrones from the beginning, and be shocked and surprised all over again. 
    For clarity: Alzheimer’s is terrible,  it I’m a glass half full kind of guy.

    I thought the last series was brilliant. Yes, they chucked any semblance of time away; yes, were wasn't anywhere near enough Ghost (direwolves > dragons) and yes, they shied away from killing off the mid but I thought the whole spectacle was unbelievable. It was completely batshit crazy and I loved every second of it. The death of Littlefinger was beautifully satisfying as well. I hated that rick.
    Cannot wait for the John-Arya reunion. And I'd rather Brienne get with Tormund than Jaime tbh. 
    Any predictions?

    Who else is getting excited? I'm on Season 5 Episode 8 of my rewatch. Can't wait for the 14th/15th April now.
    Oh, and boring people like @David, who can't comprehend the fact that not everything on television has to be real, shouldn't waste their time on this thread. Go to the handegg thread if you have to.

    Football is crap. Pathetic athletes, pathetic organisations running it... it's just pathetic. 
    I've got bored of it with all the ******** like this and 8 Barcelona players injured by one plastic bottle. 
    You can bring the game into disrepute by posting something on Twitter but rolling around on the floor because you were nearly touched is fine. 
    Other thrilling examples of football along with simulation include time wasting and excessive force. You can't forget the odd bit of spitting, biting and all those ferocious head butts. You can tell a referee to feck off and scream in his face but you can't criticise him in an interview. 
    It's all total balls. Like when the football community comes together. Fake. As. Fook. 
    Total over reactions to everything from everyone. 
    Complete circus of nonsense. I find the vast majority of football games very annoying. 
    Even watching some see you next Tuesday try and steal 2 inches on a corner or 2 meters on a throw in.... I mean ffs. 
    "Behaviour like that doesn't belong in football"... it's the most pathetic sport out there. I can't stand Rugby but it's got less ******** than football. Football is the exact place for idiots, cheats, thieves and thugs. It punishes with one hand and encourages with the other. 
    Trash game

    Agree it's across a number of sports. Cycling and track and field athletics have been utterly ruined by it too.
    Top level fighters are getting caught, and they're getting short bans in a sport whether the elite may only fight a couple of times a year anyway. Canelo? Tyson Fury?

    Alpha I understand this is a forum and people have opinions but sometimes those opinions can be seen as abusive and totally unproductive.
    All players have bad games but some seem to take the brunt of bad performances more than others which is what pisses me off.
    Keogh, Lawrence, Forsyth, Josefzoon....all take the flack for a bad performance but people like Mount, Bogle and Waghorn can do no wrong even when they clearly have off days.
    My issue is that if you say these things on a forum I’m guessing you also say these thinks on match day which helps no one.

    So the forum should be a place of cheerleading? 
    Are we here to talk about football or to stroke egos? 
    If I think Joe Bloggs is crap then this isn't the place to talk about his performances. If Joe Bloggs is a striker and has scored 1 in 20 then I should really focus on that 1 goal and then maybe thanks to this forum he'll sort himself out?
    Are you assuming that people that criticise players on here are not encouraging them at the matches?
    I don't get this forum cheerleading thing. There are moaners that find negatives in everything and there's people that find positives in everything. There are balanced people too. It's a forum built on opinions. Give out scripts and watch it die.

    If all those people love him then why would you or him care about a few people on a message board. He isn't forced to read this. If he reads negative posts then he can read yours too. 
    I'm with revel. I don't think he's much good either. I keep seeing stuff like "Well  Frank Lampard who has won xyz thinks he's good and I think he knows more about football than you" 
    Cool. 
    So... if we say he's great then that means feck all either because I'm not a European Cup winner. Basically our opinion carries no weight. So what difference does it make whether we are "behind him" or not.
    Although I do insist on always asking if it's not possible to think he's crap but still get behind him on the matchday. 
    I mean I'm not hanging around his house booing him while he's mowing the grass. I'm on here talking about Derby with you lot. If Tom wants to read it then that's up to him. Who signed up here to massage the ego of any footballer? I'll swap jobs with him. You can say what you like about me. I wouldn't be reading this. I'd be crashing a Lamborghini or harassing glamour models. I'd appreciate support but haters are part of the game. Fans and haters are part of all sports.
