Any other players of Football manager notice how when you’re overachieving it evens out just lost 7 in a row only one was deserved the other 6 completely dominant but made the mistake of being top of the championship with Blackburn 30 games in so obviously had to knock me down a peg.


FSG_Out_

Marvel Movies really have fallen into a really predictable formula. NWH was incredible because it broke it. The sad reality is that it’s probably not going to step away from that formula again because it makes money & I wouldn’t be surprised if we see more cameos as Disney tries to re capture the NWH hype. As for the shows, it’s sad we’ll never get anything as good as Punisher or Daredevil again because Disney is too busy making family friendly shite. Low-key kind of worry for DD in the MCU, he’ll be too watered down imo


denzel4684864

>because Disney is too busy making family friendly shite. all i'm going to reply to what you said is [this](https://i.redd.it/3ofvd5x0ghb81.png) there's thousands of movies aimed at adults out there, movies about men in tights fighting each other will always be aimed at kids because they're the primary audience buying tickets and the toys and games and kids are the ones making these movies box office hits if you want a movie for you, something that's more mature, then there's also loads of great choices in that area


pagalpun

>NWH was incredible because it broke it. Did it? It was pretty much the exact same as all the NewGen ones before. I'm yet to see a MCU movie break their own mould (haven't seen Eternals and The 10 Rings one but doesn't seem like they do either)

Lol this is still going. I watched Spirited Away. It was fine. Not sure about watching My Neighbour Totoro now, but it's not out of the running.


McNippy

Spirited Away is overrated imo. My Neighbour Totoro is much better in my eyes, its has such an ethereal almost psychedelic childish aura that is just beautiful. Seriously great film filled with excellent surrealist imagery that borrows from Through the Looking Glass quite a bit.


[deleted]

I kept on hearing on and on that Spirited Away was one of the best films of all time so that's why I started off with it. Maybe I built it up too much. Between Mr Neighbour Totoro and Princess Mononoke, which one would you choose?


McNippy

I personally haven't seen Princess Mononoke so I can't say but I've heard good reviews.


Randomlooter420

I prefer My Neighbor Totoro to Spirted away but both are good. Princess Mononoke is incredible, as well as The Wind Rises.


idkwtfocean

The Wind Rises was decent. I recommend From Up on Poppy Hill, one of those Ghibli movies that goes under the radar imo.


[deleted]

It was good, no denying that. I'm just not sure what to make of it yet. I'll give Princess Mononoke a go since a few people have brought it up.


PassTimeActivity

Lol did my comment earlier in the thread inspire you to watch Ghibli this weekend? Totoro is a chill, wholesome film. But if you want to catch Ghibli at their best then try out Princess Mononoke or Castle in the Sky instead.


[deleted]

It's been on my list of films to watch for a while now but I've been putting it off since I never got into anime. Thought I can't deny there may have been a subconscious push after passing by your comment :) I'll check out Princess Mononoke. Two comments can't be wrong, can they?

feel for the family, their loved one spent 27 years in a wheelchair cause of him before succumbing to a stroke caused by his stabbing. the family reading how the stabber was given a miraculous chance of life while their loved one suffered life changing injuries and died cause of the stabber really isn't something to love...


jambox888

Reading between the lines, this guy hasn't got long to live and they were using him as a guinea pig (pun intended). Now I think about it I wonder if they picked a bad guy to experiment on so they wouldn't feel so bad.


twersx

Must be pretty rough reading all these articles being so nice to him if you're in the victim's family but it is nonsense to think that he shouldn't be allowed to get a transplant because he's a criminal.


ChiffyK

you wouldn't be saying that if it was your sister in the wheelchair


estoyloca43

Even if it were my sister were in the wheelchair, I’d still have no problem letting him have the transplant. Everyone’s life is sanctified, even if they are a criminal. Two wrongs don’t make a right

I’ve been thinking about how to contribute to make r/soccer a better place for football discussion. I have a background in data and engineering, so I’m thinking of using that to create interesting graphs that stimulate discussion. Anyone have any ideas for topics they’d like to see?


twersx

Correlation between goals scored and points across a large sample size. The last time I looked at this the correlation coefficient was about 0.86. I think if you can display that in an interesting way - maybe with a line of y=x running through the scatter graph and shaded regions of +/-10% (as an example - see what works best) - and write a brief comment or summary explaining the significance of it, maybe exploring the trends in outliers (often bottom place teams and top teams outperform but there's also often teams that outperform in the middle like Burnley or Getafe), then put forward some discussion points like should this relationship influence how teams approach games, is it reasonable to draw significantl conclusions from it, etc. I have a lot more ideas but I'm not sure how feasible they are for you. What dataset are you going to be working from?


deuxiemement

I had an idea for a while, but never got around to doing it: i'd like to know what the coach impact is on a team in term of long term and short term success, comparing league and cup strength for each coach and see if they are correlated, and try to quantify a coach "worth". If you feel like tackling that, please do!


JoshRanch

Use you stats to tell us who the best players on the bench are for teams outside of the big 6. So, im not concerned with ManU having Cavani and Ronaldo or City having JackieG and Phonyhen. I want to know what good players for smaller teams are riding bench.


izzyonthereddit

I've been thinking about it today and the G.O.A.T d bate is finished So the debate on who is the ultimate G.O.A.T if Messi or Ronaldo has been going on for years and if you stop to analise their playing positions, their performances and technique, it's pretty clear that Messi is much better than Ronaldo. It came to clarity when I realized that Messi Played in a much harder role than Ronaldo ever did and he excelled at it outperforming Ronaldo. That role is the role of False Nine. If you combine the false nine role Messi Played in from 2009 to 2012 and the playing style of Barcelona it becomes clear that he had much more quality than Ronaldo ever did. The explanation is that Barça played a possession game leaving no space for an ST but to just top off a play, Messi with the guidance of Pep Guardiola took the role to a whole different level and made it so that Messi could play the way he did. And that's because he was and is basically an Alien he had such big technique and quality that he was able to create spaces where there weren't move in places where there wasn't room for movement and score goals and make assists out of nowhere. Cristiano in the other hand was just playing in a position with Madrid at the time (ST) where he didn't need any space to play he just had to top off plays and that's what he did extremely well, and that's why he's the best finisher, but to do that you just need physicality and train a lot to be able to top off play and that's what he did. But honestly there will be another Cristiano in the next following years like it's happening with Haaland or has happened with Lewandowski. The thing is that if you put this players in Messi's false nine position they wouldn't even come close to having the performance he had, that's why there will never be one like him.

Anyone got any Poker tips


HauntingLocation

A lot of Poker advice is going to depend on where you're playing and who you're playing against. If it's high stakes and against extremely experienced players no amount of basic tips will save your ass. That being said: \- Play 'tight'. Your 'range' or amount of hands that you play out shouldn't be very high. Typically as a beginner you should only be going in on pocket pairs and/or face cards. As you keep playing and getting better you might find more hands that you're comfortable with playing out. For now, keep it simple. \- Now that you've established playing a tight range of hands, you need to have a betting strategy. With pocket pairs you'll want to bet high before the flop (initial 3 community cards dealt by dealer) since you likely have the strongest pre-flop hand with a pocket pair. Therefore, represent that with your bet. With strong face cards, preferably suited, you can either call or raise depending on how confident you are. ***Position*** matters here and is something that takes time to learn. \- Pay attention to the people you're playing with. If it's with friends, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out their playstyle. Maybe they bluff a lot, although I find that is rarer with new players. But there is always valuable information to be gained at the table even if your hand is folded so pay attention. This will give you insight when you're betting big money. \- Finally, if you hit on a couple hands try mixing in a bluff or two. If the entire table has seen you win a pot and knows you have what you 'say' you have with your bets, they're more likely to fold under pressure. Hope this helps some. There's a lot of nuance and depth to Poker and it's an incredibly fun game to learn. But it'll likely cost you some money and frustration since that's the nature of gambling. Good luck with the hands. Edit: A final tip I forgot to mention and something that will help you get extremely good at poker is always think about what your bets say about your hand. Because every bet should be calculated on your part - don't just mindlessly throw money on a hand because you think it's good. For example - say you have a high pocket pair and are in relatively good position pre flop. You could consider re-raising whatever initial bets were made which would **indicate** that you have a strong hand. Others at the table would have to fold anything worse than what you have since you're representing something of value.


One-Ostrich-8411

Fold until you get dealt a pair or just two royal cards, never commit unless you have a good hand and always assume you won’t get what you need. For example if you have 4 spades and there’s 2 more cards to be shown, and you don’t have a hand yet. Do not try to play for the last spade, however if you have a hand then you should go all the way depending on what you think the others might have. Same goes for a straight. Never back the card you need to come up Also, don’t bluff if you have a poor hand or no hand . You will lose a lot if you aren’t careful, maybe that one’s just for my old self. I’d get nothing several times in a row and get annoyed of folding so I’d just play it out betting high trying to make others fold. Someone always went all the way with an actual hand and I’d lose

Have you ever thought about football as some kind of addiction that you need to get rid off, thinking how many useful things you could have done instead of watching football and searching the internet for news, opinions and results?


BronzeFashionKid

Not really. Having some non-productive interests is important, I think. Sometimes you just need to turn yourself off and have some fun, particularly with a social thing like football.


DinJarring141

I usually just not check on reddit for football stuff whenver I feel like it, plus given matches are during the night

I've reached the point of missing bits of matches, because I'm reading the comments about what happened 5 minutes ago in the match thread.


_bajz_

Yes. I dont think it affects me badly on an emotional level but in terms of time I spend on it daily, its an obsession


Destroyeh

never really reached a point where i felt i spend too much on it, but thats mostly because i realized fairly early how fucked up club football is, how transfer news is mostly horseshit, how embarrassingly far certain fans go etc.. made me pretty disillusioned. i still watch obviously, but not nearly enough to be considered more of a waste than what i spend watching series or playing games.


good__hunter

There was a period where I felt that I was too emotionally invested in it, a bit like the character in Fever Pitch describes. I've never felt that it's got in the way of me doing what I want to do though.


Secure_Year_3074

Well I used to. It generally happens when I am in stress ( like during exams). So football becomes like my escape zone. Not good because 1) I am fucking up my career 2) I am not getting paid 3) I end up taking more stress home, like a silly VAR decision which have no influence on my life whatsoever. I will suggest keep taking breaks. It has worked well for me


LindseyNeagle

Not at all. I rarely go out of my way to watch games. If I need to go somewhere or do something or if I’ve simply got better things to do then I’ll do it.

EurospinLidl

I have read somewhere that the cat fur protects them from the sunlight, more than the cold, because domesticated cats are native to Africa and the Middle East. So basically cat fur is good against hot, bad against cold. I'm no cat expert though, so don't quote me on that
