    The Game Thread!

    Recently spent 2 weeks in Helsinki but the only home games were the day I arrived and the day I left 🙄. Turned down the chance to see HJK turn Schalke over in a champs league qualifier a few years back. The ticket price was ridiculous! Some guy named Pukki scored 2 that night 😉 I agree with you on Fifa. If they added the Finnish league, I would certainly consider buying it. So much more value to me than their new gimmick.

    As a guy who has been to a couple of HJK matches, I would love the Finnish league!

    Yeah, those fans are ***** but it's not like there aren't Aussie fans like that too. Remember Simon Jones 2003? Anyway, by the time he has amassed 1000 runs in the series and won the Ashes, I'm sure he'll get over it 😉

    It knocked about 20 years off my life that match and I also have no fingernails left. I hope to NEVER have to go through that again! Stokes is a legend and a hero!

    I don't know if anyone else has been watching the womens world cup but it has been brilliant. I went in to it with a lot of pessimism but the games have been very entertaining and high tempo with little stoppage in play. If you haven't seen any, I recommend tuning in to the final on Sunday.

    Thoughts after 1 seasons in career

    The AI development speed and silly driver transfers are the main things that are putting me off from buying the game. I would play solely career mode and although I'm not the 'ultimate immersion' guy, I want some sense of realism and this really doesn't do it for me. I'm happy the op has had a positive driver transfer experience but I've read way too many horror stories to convince me to dip my hand in my pocket. C'mon Codies, tone these things down a bit!

    This is fine in principle but what concerns me is that the 'maxed out' Alfa Romeo was not influenced by the player in a 2 year simulated career. It was completely AI controlled. If you play as you suggest, then you would most likely fall behind the other teams in this year's game. I didn't play last years' game but am seriously considering going out and getting this one but the ridiculous speed in upgrades along with the driver transfer issue is really putting me off.

    I think the final may be live on Youtube again like it was last year so you can catch it there possibly. Chance to make it an English European lock out tonight with Arsenal and Chelsea. #nobrexit

    Had a service/mot at Kwik fit once and it wasn't great. The guy serving was a prat and it took them 3 hours longer than they promised me. On the way home down the dual carriageway, a car pulled up beside me to let me know my wheel was 'on fire'. Turns out the idiots hadn't adjusted the handbrake correctly resulting in the pad rubbing against the disc. Had to take it back in and wait ages again for them to correct it. That was my experience anyway but not all centres will be that incompetent. Just don't go to Bletchley!

    Keep the faith. League 2 normally throws up final day drama and a great escape. The fat lady ain't sung yet!

    A 4 day weekend with weather like this in April is a blessing. Enjoy it everyone, I know I will 🍺🍺🍺

    Soft spot for Yeovil after 8 seasons on football manager. Hope they survive but also want Macclesfield to do well under big Sol. As for Spurs, as Gooner I don't want them winning the Champs League but a North London Super Cup would be amazing if we also won the Europa League!

    I've noticed it too. Morning UK time seems slow, especially around 5am GMT but by afternoon, it seems fine. This isn't just today, it seems to be an everyday occurrence.

    Do you seriously not know what an Uber driver is? You know, it's quicker and easier to Google something you don't know or understand than to wait for an answer on here.

    Speaking of Finland, my wife is going back there for a week to see her mum. Obviously I wish she wasn't going but I wouldn't dream of denying her the chance to spend time with her as she's getting quite old now. Get to go again in the summer myself too 😁
