  1. London will surely get a team sooner or later.
  2. The polyglot thread

    It's very hard. The tones make it very complex. I'm not even going to pretend I can read or write. I can recognize about 10-20 characters ha. It's basically a case of repetatively memorizing what the characters look like. There's no other system. That's how the children here learn it.
  3. 2019 Offseason Trade Rumors & Free Agency Thread

    Suns are all over the place with trash moves.
  4. The polyglot thread

    I've lived in China for 7 years so I have a fair grasp of it. Understanding is better than spoken, but I can certainly get by.
  5. The Runners Thread

    Signed up for the Singapore marathon at the end of November. It's a night marathon around Singapores downtown. It should be spectacular.
  6. The Runners Thread

    It's not ideal, but for that distance it should be fine. I don't think you will have lost too much in that month. Especially if you have still been training some over that time.
  7. What TV Show Are You Watching?

    Just finished season 3 of Peaky Blinders. Really loved the first 2 seasons, the third gets a bit crazy. Will crack onto the 4th soon.
  8. 2019 Defense

    I'm excited at the prospect of our newly formed D. It's basically a completely clean slate.
  9. This joke wouldn't have been funny even before Lebron went back to Cleveland, and won them a championship
  10. Official New Orleans Pelicans Thread

    You're right. Building like the Thunder is best case scenario.
  11. Official New Orleans Pelicans Thread

    Perhaps, I think the Pelicans should be prepared and want another year at the top of the lottery though.
  12. Transfers & Rumors: Deadline Drama!

    World record transfer fee. Astronomical wages. Yes, I expect a world beater. Pogba has not been good at United. He's replaceable. You said United will regret selling him, I strongly disgaree. Pogba is an attacking player. Uniteds attack ran through him. Those players carry teams because they're the best players in the world. Pogba isn't close to that level.
  13. Official New Orleans Pelicans Thread

    IMO, The Pelicans should trade Holiday for as many future assets as they can. Sucking for a year will set this team up to be potentially incredible down the line. See what Ball, Ingram and Zion can do and plan for the future. They should be in no rush to win soon. I think they should keep #4, but if they trade it, it should be for picks this year and future picks. Not vet players, imo. A trade for #6 and future picks would be ideal.
  14. Transfers & Rumors: Deadline Drama!

    You're ignoring the fact that he has also been trash for almost his entire stay at United. He had a good 12 game stretch whist the team were playing lights out. Then he fell off to doing nothing again. If you're that good, you carry your team. See Bales last season at Spurs and Hazard this season, as examples. Pogba is nowhere near either of those guys.
  15. Transfers & Rumors: Deadline Drama!

    The circumstances required for Pogba to play at his best are extremely difficult to replicate. For France, he's playing on a team that was significantly more talented than anyone they played, imo. He's given a free role to do as he wishes becuase he has the best CDM and another elite CDM to back him up. He also has M'bappe, Griezmann etc to open up acres of space. Not to mention that International football is played differently from club football. At Madrid, he may be a success because similar to with France, they out-team almost everyone they play. When the going gets tough. Pogba is nowhere to be seen.
