It can, quite definitely, be worse, much worse. Where have you been for Chelsea's season? That is much worse than anything Moyes ever oversaw.

Chelsea have scored 20 more PL goals than man utd over the last 2 seasons and have only scored 1 less this season despite being the absolute worst in their 15 years history

Don't disagree

I'm a NY Giants fan. Believe me, I agree and can relate

European main stream beer > American ditto

For craft beers, though, I think I'll have to agree that the US kills it.

Do the US craft beers have live yeast?

Re: English Football 2015-16

Is Bells out of Michigan considered craft or mainstream? Obviously it's not like anhueser or coors but it's not really local either. Or Sierra Nevada?

Re: English Football 2015-16

No doubt results and performances would improve in the short to medium term (while still being boring as **** though) but the man is on the verge of a psychotic break, would need 300m+ to solidify the bus and would leave behind a squad full of 30 y/o's when he finally gets forcibly committed to the asylum.

Can't stand the **** and sincerely hope we look elsewhere.

If you're calling that mainstream then American mainstream > Euro mainstream. But for the purposes of this discussion I'd define mainstream as American beer that is available in Europe and vice versa. So like MGD, Budweiser and Coors Light, which makes the discussion not even worth having.

The smaller breweries are getting bought up more and more. But we still don't get Bells in NJ which is hard to believe. Their Two-Hearted is as good as readily available beer in the US as it gets.

Curry played 78 games in 12-13 as opposed to 23 in 11-12. They got rid of Ellis in between who is a cancer in general and a horrible fit with Curry. Bogut played 12 games in 11-12 and Curry getting 1 year older at age 24 is a much bigger deal. hope that helps.

going to put myself a stop to the derail here

When that amazing ashes series was on going (Like 2005) everybody became cosumed by cricket. We swapped footy and the astroturf for cricket that summer.

Needless to say we all sucked except that one guy who gets shoved in net every time (Because he's crap at football but actually plays cricket) but it was magnificent that i naturally bowled a googly (Despite not knowing what one was) . Cricket kid was well impressed even if it was only 15mph

So a player raised a teams win total by 24 games. It's almost as if it a great player continuing to progress will coincide with his team continuing to progress. And Luke Walton (!) started the season 24-0 with said team.

It seems like the squad is going to need a pretty big overhaul to get back into the title race. If they make a big mistake and go with a manager that "knows the club" like Giggs, they are only a few bad transfer windows away from becoming the new Liverpool, imo.

Hopefully Pellegrini is going to get a decent job after Man City exit this summer. Seems like a decent fellow, his teams play attractive football. And that hair.

no it all makes sense to me. warriors went from a bad coach to a bad coach but their results improved dramatically because the roster had much more quality over 82 games. then the warriors went from a bad coach to a good coach with the same roster and minor differences in individual qualities and their results improved drastically too. the example you gave is dependent on player quality, the one i gave is dependent on coaching

No. NBA coaches are by far the least relevant of all sports. Luckbox top 3 player itw and roll the balls out.
Lol at the idea of baseball strategy when traditionalists get upset you move the fielders around on a defensive shift.

You probably think RBI's are truly indicative of a successful baseball player.

I'm glad you guys are getting this baseball nonsense out of your system now and not during international break, that would constitute cruel and unusual punishment.
