    Its like a weird feeling because of the virus I feel and also because we were so far ahead.
     
    I still got slightly upset when the Chelsea final whistle happened (and I know friends who went the ground haha) tons of fireworks went off around my house but it still felt muted and I just kept thinking like town would still be jumping now.

    If you read Zonal Marking its pretty good at explaining obviously the different tactics of the strongest teams in that "era" of country domination but Barcelona's press is what inspired Klopp (I can't remember if it was Rijkaard's or Guardiola's but I'm sure it was Rijkaard's) but while Barcelona aggressively fought to get the ball back to control the ball again. Klopp's ideas also being inspired by Rangnick's fast transitions. Bundesliga already being heavily counter-attacking Klopp's press is counter-press basically its countering the counter attack exploiting the transition from defence to attack. The entire chapter though on Guardiola trying to adapt to the Bundesliga and every team being counter-attacking is awesome.
     
    Liverpool's main thing is that its fullbacks are its playmakers (unlike say a number 10) Liverpool especially use a cross-field ball but unlike most teams doing it say fullback to midfielder or attacker its fullback to fullback (as seen in Salah's goal)
     
     
    Its why United had a better game because they basically man marked the fullbacks which is crazy to think about.

    Felt good to get in a day of board gaming today.  I enjoy winning, but most of the time I enjoy playing the games and hanging out with friends more. However, today I was excited about getting a win in Lords of Hellas to start things off. I finally got into the groove on how to play the game. You really need to set multiple things up to happen at once, otherwise your opponents will see what is happening a mile away and block it in one move. We also realized we were playing one of the special actions wrong, which caused the games to be longer. Today it was a decent 2 hour length.  Also won at Godfather and KoT, so my drought of winning looks to be over  We also played 5 Minute Marvel which is a fun game, but it's pretty easy until the last boss battle with Thanos.  I picked it up to play with my niece, but I am going to have to extend the timer.

    Picked up a bunch of board games as gifts for friends (Arkham Horror Card Game, Consulting Detective and 7 Wonders) they went down well.
     
    Been debating a game for myself, Imperial Settlers or Concordia etc I am unsure.

    So we ended up at our friends’ place yesterday because a tornado ripped through town and demolished our power. We are fine and have power again but we killed time with games.
     
    First play of Spoils of War, which is basically Liar’s Dice with loot and special powers. Really great, lots of yelling and swearing.
     
    Then Modern Art, which we used to play endlessly back in the day. Still one of my favorite auction games ever.

    * For the final conclusion, it is only right to offer the floor to Gary Neville, and his best bits on co-commentary.
     
    “I’m absolutely fuming watching them.”
    “Three or four of these Arsenal players want to leave… Who wants to buy them?”
    “Xhaka has just tried to backheel the ball to his goalkeeper in the six yard box. Try to put words to that if you can.”
    “I can’t believe what I’m seeing here.”
    “It’s a well-told story that I’m not a Liverpool fan, but this Arsenal side deserves a battering. This is the most disappointing Arsenal you could possibly wish to see.”
    “The general attitude, and lack of respect towards the shirt by three or four of them. They (the Arsenal fans) must be livid.”
    “I’d stick them all up on the transfer list.”

    In Wenger’s post-match press conference, he stated that “this is not the time to get emotional”. For the Arsenal manager to utter those words after a former Manchester United player was left “absolutely fuming” by the performance is the final insult.

    Spurs did well this season, would prefer their DVD of good games than watching more of the putrid shite Mourinho put out this season.

    I thought Ronaldo had a poor game but he gets the winning penalty sign off and another thing to add to his second movie.
