  1. It's either that or stay the night in Marseille. Really sucks. We might have to do the same thing, but trying to get out of the stadium, get to the station and on the train before it leaves at 8pm will be tight. Poorly organised to be fair. The City to City trains should be running much later.

    Germany Provisional Squad (27 Man)

    I'd take Mustafi over Rüdiger, despite the latter having more pace. I can't see what Löw and some others see in him. I don't think he's that great. Then again I'm juding him on his VfB days. Haven't seen his Roma performances. I hope Weigl goes. He'd be rather useful as rotation in that midfield. So composed on the ball and extremely mature for his age.
  3. haha, that's fine. Can't image there would be much space in a mini. We're hoping to bail straight after the game too, but there doesn't look like many options. The official EURO 2016 train partner still shows last train is 8pm. Maybe we can catchup for a beer before hand. We will probably get there at midday.
  4. My mate and I are looking for accommodation in Lille for the 1st to the 2nd. Just need somewhere over night. You have a place? Got any recommendations or areas? Been sussing out airbnb places.

    Germany Provisional Squad (27 Man)

    I'd drop Basti, Rudy, Kimmich and Löw's lovechild Podolski for the final squad. I know Basti is the captain, but I think they need to move on without him. He's been poor and will hamper the team on the field in my opinion. I don't like the lack of proper fullbacks, but as Goldy said, Löw won the WC playing CB's across the back four.
  6. My mate and I will be at the Marseille game on the 21st, Ukraine v Poland. Want to drive us to Lyon after the game? haha.
  7. Anyone privy on the transport available after games? Went into my travel agent today to work out the trains to get from the places we are staying to the games. We have two games in Marseille, but didn't want to stay there, so are staying in Lyon for some part of our trip. It looks like the last train that goes from Marseille to Lyon is at 8pm. Doesn't leave much time to get from the game (starting at 6pm) to the station. Then the Quarter final starts at 9pm, so no luck there. I presumed they'd have public transport running late out of the cities for those who aren't going to stay overnight. EDIT: Figured I'd post what we have. Flying over from Australia to get in Paris on the 18th. 21st Marseille: Ukraine v Poland 27th Saint Denis: Knock out game 30th Marseille: Quarter 1st Lillie: Quarter Will be staying in Paris and Lyon, with ending a night in Lillie. Then off to Germany for a bit. Had 3 more group games but resold them because they were pants and mate couldn't get time off for that first week.
  8. Ah, so not 2nd season in game. Makes sense. They get taken over? On my game I regularly got €400m-€500m while at Dortmund, got a job offer from Real Madrid and Barca. Madrid willing to give me €450m, Barca €40m. Barca hadn't won the league in years.
  9. Does your manager stop aging at 81 years old, or did you have to keep editing his birthdate? I still play a 2014 save and my guy is getting to that stage.

    Band of Brothers

    Totally agree with what has been said. It's an amazing show, full of great performances. I've probably watched it around 6 times and it doesn't get old, unlike most shows. The Pacific was interesting and a scary depiction into how it was like but I found it hard to care much about the main characters. I think Sledge was miscast. I have the book, haven't read it yet though, but I don't rate Joseph Mazzello as an actor. I thought he failed at portraying Eugene's development over the series. I just didn't see him as a man/hard ass. He still came across as a bit of a b*tch, despite the dialogue he was delivering. Whereas in Band of Brothers certain characters portray a massive development in their character from the things they have seen.

    JJ Abrams to Direct New Star Wars Film!!

    I think the shots were poorly chosen and probably not in the right order. Just looked like them throwing scenes together. Starting off with the desert and the lone stormy just screamed fan video to me. They probably don't have enough material but I would have preferred something along the lines of 'Star Wars Battlefront' teaser. One scene, build suspense and intrigue. Release another 30 second teaser a month or two later, repeat.

    The Playstation 4 Thread

    Is Shadow of Mordor worth $60AUD? Looks cool, but also looks very repetitive. Think I could just wait and get it second hand down the track.
  13. Just a side note, haven't bought the game yet. Not sure if I will as there doesn't seem like many big changes from FM14 (besides ME) and I have a fun long term FM14 save. Anyways, is the manager/coach present at games yet? As in visible during 3D/2D games. Or do they and the coaching staff still not turn up?

    The Walking Dead *Possible Spoilers*

    *Spoilers* So, why did Beth stab the cop in the chest? Wouldn't the neck be the target? How did the cop lady shoot her when everyone was supposed to have their guns down/holstered. Think they should have made it so Carol died instead, as they seemed to have developed her to the point that there's nothing left. Beth had more to do, imo. Also agree that it was weird that Maggie didn't mention Beth at all. Not a big WD fan as I skipped a few seasons/episodes. Just seems the same stuff over and over. Meet a group, group has ulterior motives, someone dies, sh*t goes down. I thought the storyline for the cure would have been interesting, despite it being very obvious from the start that the redneck was lying.

    I mainly just listen to football and comedy ones. Find it hard to get into podcasts, as there's a lot of sh*t out there in terms of comedy, by my taste. I prefer odd, weird, stupid, Boosh style humour. Football Weekly (Well known. Been listening to this for years. UK focused, ofcourse.) Talking Fußball (I follow Bundesliga so this is a good listen. Can be hit or miss. Some of the guys can be annoying. Eg. Not great voices for 'radio'.) Comedy Bang Bang (Might be difficult to get into depending on your humour. Lots of in-jokes, plenty of guests and 'character' guests. It's a TV show, too. Pod generally out once a week. Episodes over an hour, some better than others but I regularly lol.) Hamish and Andy (light entertainment, Aussies, although they've just gone on 6 month break. Maybe watch them on YouTube to start. Can download old pods). U Talking U2 to Me (Scott Aukerman from Comedy Bang Bang and Adam Scott talk U2. Don't need to be a U2 fan. Entertaining.) Adam and Joe (Love these guys. Off the air but you can download old podcasts. "Bring a chuckle to my face") I'm looking for some more as only a few of these are active.
