Yes it probably was but I'll just copy my reply to a tweet from someone who was 'end of the world' pearl clutching.

RE: Arsenal 21/22 season

4.0
Lovely result and we didn't really play that well till the third went in.
Nice for Heath to get her first goal as I didn't really think she was on her game.
Could have been a bit of a come back if not for Zinsberger who pulled of some really good saves.
Not sure who got player of the match but Kim Little had the match by it's short and curlies.

Arsene Wenger. Invincible coming out soon

I'm sure if I was offered the chance I'd go but you'd actually get a longer weightless experience for considerably less cost on NASA's vomit comet.

"I think it's hard in the first few episodes to get to like them"

Given how hard I found it to get into Wandavision I'm wondering if I'm being conditioned into having a shorter attention span than ten or fifteen years ago before a social media world of two and three minute clips.

Is anyone else finding this or now that shows can go on forever and episode lengths are flexible on streaming services are they taking longer to tell their stories and not editing as tightly as they used to.

Dialogue sharp enough to cut yourself on and top actors with invisible directing, the best kind, that doesn't get in the way of the story.

RE: [VIDEO] The Expanse (SyFy)

Got through a couple or three episodes of series one and kinda stopped.
Keep meaning to go back to it but I didn't really give a toss about any of the characters.

RE: Black Widow

So it's now up for free with the Disney membership and I caught up with it last night.
Maybe 6.5 out of 10
Good with all the usual smash crash.
Some decent smart mouth dialogue but I don't think the sisters sparked off each other anywhere near the usual Marvel standard.

Definitely a full point deduction for Winstonovitch with the Bethnal Greeonograd accent.
There had to be somebody better than that. I kept waiting for him to tell me the odds of Romanov winning.

Looks like there's something being planned for the Widows the way they left it.
Probably not with Johanson though even though it looks like they've kissed and made up.

That was fun.
Everton really trying to press hard at the beginning but it didn't work properly and they couldn't keep it up.

RE: Most morally bankrupt takeover since the Glazers?

The latest HIGNFY had a tweet displayed from someone commenting that Saudi are putting more money into Newcastle than they did into 9/11.

Don't be put off by the fact this is a link to an Arsenal blog as the whole article is on the general situation and how Newcastle relates to it.
You might find it interesting.

Yeh.
I don't think we'll see him lining up again though a couple of matches pay for play in the Crappybow cup would be nice.
Just a good influence on the youngsters while he gets his badges and maybe save a few quid by keeping his opinion of the LWC a bit quieter. 🙂

RE: Arsenal 21/22 season

Bloody annoying match.
Yes Barca are a fantastic side but we didn't start playing until about 65 mins in. Pretty well a given that they would have loads of possession and we'd have to hit them on the break but far too hesitant and nervous when we got the ball.
Ref not up to much and way to fussy. Same number of fouls from each side but we get six yellows to Barca's one, including one for the manager who it's fair to say was not amused at some of the decisions.

I hope we give it a bit more of a go on the return leg.

So Tory Boy Pierce is trumpeting that only 10,000 EU drivers quit.

"2 Results does not a season make, and didn't beat much"

Three.
Four if you want to be over generous and include the Crappybow cup match and while the results were nice, particularly stuffing N17, it was watching what seems to be coming together.
As for not beating much, that was pretty well the LWCs first choice line up.

Let's just say I'm a lot happier than I was a couple of weeks ago and quite hopeful.
