Anyone watched "The Edge" on amazon prime? It's about England Cricket's rise from 7th in the test rankings to 1st, but focuses heavily on the mental aspect of that.

I enjoyed it. I liked the KP documentary on Sky as well I think Hussein interviewed him really well in not shying away from asking the tougher questions. It would have been interesting to see Prior, Flower, Anderson and Broad involved in it though.

Just finished Season one of Mindhunter on Netflix. Season 2 already available.  Seems a good show giving early insight into the FBI's BAU.

Season 1 is awesome, while season 2 is slow and not very informative about famous serial killers or their psycology... It's more based around one specific case... No more spoilers, sorry...  Season 2 is worth a watch, but I find season 1 better. Here's hoping season 3 will be a killer!

Everyone has to see the Joker Joaquin Phoenix was phenomenal in it.

I love how you can see the transformation in his performance, he really emotes the changes in the character. That scene where hes walking out of the subway station after "the incident" (wont spoil it) is one of the most simple, powerful shots I think I've ever seen when put into context of what we had already seen up until that point, where hes suddenly just exuding cool and is finally comfortable in his own skin. I got *** goosebumps.

A great character profile I thought, been recommending it since I left the cinema

The Sinner on Netflix is really really good. Deep, eerie and with great actors and actresses!

I'd give it 8/10 on the very critcal scale ?

Good thread

I enjoy any films, box sets regarding WW2

The last WW2 film I see recently, which I've seen numerous times is The Pianist, great film & sad, in itself, Adrian Brody is the main actor in a Jewish family of 5 living in Poland during the German occupation 

It's presently on Netflix & I will no doubt watch it again soon

The last box set I seen & enjoyed emenselly was Peaky Blinders, excellent, before that Band of brothers, awesome

I can't watch films, or box sets that's got no chance of having any sort of reality in it

Does anyone else hear a certain piece of music and just tear up? This sounds ridiculous but there's a Ford Focus advert on at the moment with a brief classical sounding piece in it. Turns out it's by the utterly fantastic British musical collective The Cinematic Orchestra, two pieces called "Arrival of The Birds" and "The Transformation" originally written for a Disney documentary about flamingos of all things!

Perhaps a different form of tearing up in response to music but this made me laugh my tits off when one of the streams had it on.

Great piece of music, but if anything it makes me feel chilled and tranquil, rather than tearing up.

 

To get the waterworks going requires something like this...

I was saddened to hear the news of the loss of Matt Chipchase from Young Rebel Set yesterday. He was a very talented local musician. 

 

 

Yes I was shocked to hear this. Such a good band and a nice guy by the sounds of it

    • But even if Warnock stays then all we are going to do is build a variation of a Pulis type of team? Then when Warnock goes after 1 season the new manager will come in and want to change and adapt. How can the club not see that we are just repeating the same old mistakes with managers and building teams?   Karanka was successful because he was allowed to build a team over three seasons with solid recruitment behind him but one that fit his tactics. All that will happen if we knee jerk from manager to manager is we create an unbalanced squad who ultimately we wasted wages on because they won’t play.    Id rather go for someone who will be given money and time but have a proven track record of building teams with a certain brand of football that the fans will like. Even Chris Wilder lost his first 4 games as Sheff Utd manager in league one, so it doesn’t have to be straight off the bat success. Even if the big bucks aren’t there then coaching and getting the best out of players is paramount. I’d rather pay more money for a coach like Bielsa than a marquee signing.  
    • It was hardly a massive change last summer. We signed 3 league 1 players and the first team squad hasn't changed that much. This summer however we are finally rid of the high earners that didn't really offer much on the pitch. There are some serious wages going out of the club. A perfect opportunity to build a balanced squad - but how many times have we said that over the years.
    • Woodgate didn't make us competitive as he was way too inexperienced, so maybe it would be a decent move to have Warnock assist when we do interviews. Obviously it won't be necessary if we are talking to experienced managers like Hughton, but if we target young or foreign managers, it might be a good move to have someone experienced assisting with interviews. I can't for the life of me imagine Gibson and Bausor asking the relevant footballing questions about how the manager works on a day to day basis and how he prepares his squad for games. You need someone who can really grill the potential manager with relevant questions.
    • That would have been a very "typical Boro" moment - one of our guys getting sent off while the ref remained blind to all the shenanigans from Millwall.
    • That is my worry too. Hopefully, if Warnock keeps us up and decides he fancies another season, he might be able to convince Gibson its time for a change of plan...or even to have one in the first place...
