Podolski header from a corner.  1-0 to the Arsenal!

I know that Coquelin's nickname is Le Coq but honestly it's Koscielny's hair that reminds me of a rooster's comb

Mr_H: iamreptar: any feed for the match today?

There's a couple on vipbox.tv as well.


Is that site better than firstrow? Some of the streams on here are absolute crap.

Half of one, six of the others.  Think it all depends on the streams they find.  Occasionally I find the same streams on vipbox and firstrow.
I do think Vipbox's is organized a bit better personally.

Specifically, I'll ask if it's worth downloading the desktop app for HD streaming.

Can't comment on the app, never used it.  I only watch the streams when I'm at work and don't want to download extra things here.

Part of me hopes Wigan goes down, just so we can say City lost to a Championship club.
 
2013-05-14 03:24:30 PM
Koscielny you suck
 
2013-05-14 03:26:43 PM
Szczesny...
 
2013-05-14 03:28:28 PM
Mike Dean is a useless piece of shiat.
 
2013-05-14 03:29:06 PM
Suddenly, a game of leap frog broke out...
 
2013-05-14 03:30:12 PM
MALONEY!

If Podolski jumps he blocks that.

Mr_H: star_topology:

On a tangential note, I just started playing Football Manager 2013. OH. MY. GOD.

I had to uninstall FM 2012...it was taking up far too much of my time.


Question:
Is there any real "skill" to the game or does it just scratch the itch of managing a club, wheeling and dealing, developing the youth squad, experimenting with tactics, etc?

I've started two campaigns, one with Aston Villa and one with Tottenham. I use similar tactics but still admittedly have a lot of homework to do on that, but it seems that it's all about personnel, there's no overachieving or underachieving ... My Spurs team scores a ton of goals while Villa's concede a metric ton of them, and I went on a 12 game winless run to start a season.

I think it's almost more of a numbers game (which I admittedly suck at).   I let the AI handle a lot of stuff and just slowly picked up individual bits.  I tried Tottenham and struggled, but found I had better luck when I went to a lower league team (Stevenage).  Probably cause there's less you have to worry about/less pressure?

There's so much to the game, it's probably best to learn small tidbits at a time.  I intend to load it up again, someday, when I have more free time.

Yes! COME ON WIGAN!

This is going to be a crazy, crazy half of football.
 
2013-05-14 03:53:54 PM
Crazy start to the 2nd half, both sides nearly scoring.
 
2013-05-14 03:54:11 PM
So much for a 'boring' game.  Sweet saves/plays/shots!
 
2013-05-14 03:57:43 PM
Ramsey is terrible.  Someone already pointed that our earlier, but christ it needs to be mentioned again.
