The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: The Film Thread
The Commuter. I wasn't expecting much from this based on the previews but it's probably the best film I've seen in ages.
A proper thriller; with a plot and everything.

Really sorry to hear that. I lost my dad at the same age; far too young.

The Carillon fall out will impact on small companies and impacts on a couple of friends.
That's just one company. Just imagine the possible impact of Brexit.

How the f*ck does the Managing Director carry on getting paid till October while smaller companies go bust and staff get laid off with nothing. It stinks.
Again; just like Brexit, it's those at the bottom of the pile that generally suffer the most from economic fallout. I agree this stinks; but remember when YOU had a choice which way you voted.

It's definitely at the Music Glue end.

2.9 / 2.5; which if I understand correctly suggests I lack empathy. Not sure what to make of that.

12/12.  You'd almost think I was the son of an English teacher.

If the odds change much more I think Donnybot might self-combust.

Quick someone put a 50p bet on.

Bellend

I'd like to think he's got some information that the NK nuclear capability is in fact more bluff than reality and some psychological profiling on KJ-U to justify this approach. But I suspect he really is just a monumental dickhead.

Empty it into a neighbour's bin.

Too much effort. Swap the bin.

The context determines who the best choice is but it is never discussed, except on here.

Really? because the club's internal discussions aren't in the public domain you assume they aren't happening?

Do the club even know what they are looking for?
 
Let's assume that they do; a more pertinent question (most) fans seem to overlook is perhaps what can they get?

We bought a handful of players for between £0.5M and £2M each, and then SOME PEOPLE are outraged that these players are not smashing the division yet, or at all.

Yeah - but all you need is a plan B. Any manager should know this.

Merry Christmas from El Salvador.
Here we all sit down for the traditional Christmas lunch around 9/10p.m. om Christmas Eve. Don't ask me why; it's a local tradition that I am stuck with but have never enjoyed, nor even got used to. There's usually a party before the dinner but afterwards almost every guest f*cks off home to spend midnight with their Mums. Party-poopers! The whole El Salvador Christmas experiencel pretty much goes over my head & sucks.
Christmas Day however, we spend on the beach, which I can handle,
Anyway, fellow scroats, do enjoy your own festive activities & I assume we will all come on board Boxing Day suitably optimistic about our match prospects.. 

I will, as local tradition dictates; be going to  Poole beaches (Bournemouth Beach in Poole, NOT Poole Beach to be precise) on Xmas day. I suspect the experience won't be exactly the same as yours.
