    The Lowdown ... The Neapolitan's (Townies) are preparing for Christmas, however it has not been a crime free November. Disgraced Camorra (Mafia) capintesta for and Cliff Richard lookalike, Riccardo Scogliera was caught siphoning money away from the organisation. Unlike other Mafia structures, Camorra operates a holocratic structure, flatter without a pyramid of hiearchy. Camorra isn't one family, it's not even one fundamentally aligned organisation but a group of clans independent of each other representative of a larger organism. Scogliera had, with the use of the duplicitous clan banker begun rinsing already laundered money from the Camorra De Crescenzo's. As expected the rather ill conceived deception was discovered and retribution swift but incomplete. Tied to a chair, with Cliff Richard's mistletoe and wine playing in the background, Paolo De Crescenzo began removing Scogliera's toes with bolt cutters and finished by dragging barbed wire across his face blinding him in one eye and all but in the other. Yet, during the torture, someone of unknown identity freed Scogliera and led him away. The Neapolitan's are enjoying a somewhat easier existence with their only concern being Christmas. Specifically a celebrity is flying in to switch on the Christmas lights in Vomero, a greater police presence is expected which itself yields further concerns given their propensity in accepting bribes from crooked Neapolitan's and Camorra alike. Also a disagreement over who will be donning the Santa Claus garbs has broken out, an outside mediator has been brought in to broker peace before Christmas and ensure the right person dresses as Santa Claus for the Vomero fete. Known Game Objectives: Neapolitan's as always you need to have slain all of the mafia before the end of the game. Additionally you are currently locked in conversations regarding the election of Santa Claus for the Vomero fete. At any point during the game this election can be triggered and you will be called to pick your Santa. De Crescenzo's of Camorra your objective is to eliminate Riccardo Scogliera and the individual hiding him. Riccardo Scogliera you have to survive to the end of the game, you will need to use all of your experience as capintesta of Scogliera Camorra to survive. Game Roles: Neapolitan's whilst predominately standard vanilla characters, some pack additional punch De Crescenzo's of Camorra [HIDDEN CONTENT] Riccardo Scogliera [HIDDEN CONTENT] The Banker [HIDDEN CONTENT] Vomero Police Officers [HIDDEN CONTENT] [HIDDEN CONTENT] [HIDDEN CONTENT] And once elected ... Santa Claus [HIDDEN CONTENT] What is not included in this iteration? The Joker Role ... so don't ask!

    Hello everyone, I have to say this comes as a huge surprise and I'm very thankful for your support. From the first day of my arrival here it was very important to me not only to see the people as usernames but as HUMANS. Humans like me. I like to think that this is one of the main reasons for my popularity and that I am perceived as one of you. Of course, I didn't just want to rely on that alone and hence I worked for months on my plan to make @nudge part of the staff. Special thanks go to @SirBalon. Without even knowing it, he was a huge help to me.

    Hello everyone. I know it's been a while since my last update and I must apologize for that. I received a lot of messages and calls after the big news yesterday and I therefore I felt that I needed to make a statement now. I understand that you feel betrayed and I'm still shocked, too. Nevertheless nobody has to worry about me. I will not accept any offer today or in the future to join the staff. I will continue to be the voice of the ordinary people and I won't forget my roots. That is a promise. YOURS, Lars

    As always I try to give it a bit of time before responding to these threads, just as I did after the Chelsea game with different emotions. Always try to have a level head in responding instead of raw emotion coming out the ground. Ultimately yesterday was highly frustrating - as we didn't turn up, again, and we were the second best team on the pitch for the majority of it. It's such a shame that our worst performance of the season seems to keep coming at the Emirates and for some reason Pochettino never seems to learn his lesson. It was always going to be a tricky game when Pochettino decided to stick Foyth in there instead of Toby. I'm all for the rotation and having faith in young players, but in a derby game like that it was no place for Foyth. He should have played the experience of Jan and Toby. We were all over the place at the back though. Hugo was really poor, had no command of his area and he just should not be captain, it doesn't work for me. Jan was diabolical as the experienced centre back. Stupid penalty to give away, lots of errors and then the sending off. I haven't seen the tackle back, looked harsh from my seat but either way I don't think he needed to let the ref make a decision there. Particularly because Mike Dean is an absolutely shocking choice for these games. No control of the game whatsoever. I thought Foyth actually grew into the game unlike Jan but he was equally poor first half. Davies and Aurier also really substandard. Just so many simple mistakes defensively and offensively offered nothing. Sissoko has been class recently but this wasn't the game for him. We needed Winks in there alongside Dier to get a bit more control on the ball. Eriksen was largely anonymous, as was Kane as he had absolutely no service and was just living off scraps and hopeful punts up to him. Son was our best player by a considerable distance and Arsenal couldn't really handle him, but we needed somebody to step up with him. I really think Pochettino has to take a fair bit of criticism for yesterday. For some reason he has a bit of mental block when we go to the Emirates and doesn't learn. Team selection was wrong but then his inability to make changes cost us. After the two half time subs by Arsenal we really needed to regroup, but he failed to make a change until 13 minutes to go when we were 4-2 down and the game was over. He's a wonderful manager, but he definitely has his blind spots. We didn't lose because we didn't have the players or the squad, we lost because we were out thought and outfought yesterday and for me that is inexcusable. I did have to laugh at the Arsenal fans and subs reaction to Dier's goal though - having just seen Aubameyang do the same in front of our away support, having watched people like Henry and Ian Wright give it to us after scoring, to react like that is pathetic. Dean to blame here also for not booking Auba, no idea what he was thinking but he was clueless all match. What is telling though is the reaction from Arsenal fans at the stadium and afterwards on social media, from the players also. You can see how the times have changed in North London by their reaction to winning a derby. It used to be expected them, a formality, but now it seems to be the opposite. I don't think I've seen celebrations like that or a reaction to a derby game for some time. I'm not quite sure why the reaction for the Son pen, you can clearly see on the replays he treads on his standing foot, stupid tackle and pretty easy decision. Same for the one for the freekick, he literally is trodden on the back of the foot. Just a shame we weren't able to capitalise on such a good position at half time. On the banana incident, it's disgraceful and I can assure you the guy was dealt with severely. It wasn't too far from me, and the guy was abused and pushed around by our support before being taken out. I'm on the Panna line of thinking that is likely not a pre-meditated thing and that it probably wasnt meant to have the connotations it did - but either way it's bloody moronic and I'm glad he will face full retribution. I've been going to Spurs for 20+ years and never seen or heard anything of the sort, it's not really our style - so it's really shameful that we've had this happen. Goes back to my original point though - how did Dean not take the heat out of the situation moving Aubameyang away from there and booking him for his blatant antagonising celebration? Overall incredibly disappointed to lose to them like that. More so in the past because we know we could and should be beating them and to collapse like that is Tottenham of old. We can't say we deserved anything from the game and credit to Emery for his changes which Pochettino just failed to respond to. Too many players off form yesterday and seemingly failing to understand the magnitude of the fixture. The celebrations for the goals were the only highlight of the day - scenes in the away end were spectacular. I stayed until the 3rd minute of injury when I finally gave up hope of any sort of recovery. Oh well, onwards and upwards - hopefully get back on track on Wednesday night. COYS

    I went to Bochum v Aue yesterday. Our fans and theirs have got a little friendship of which I know a lot of the people involved, so this time I went along and my god I got a treat with that outcome. Aue took the lead in the 2nd minute after Bochum should've probably gone ahead within about 20 seconds. From then on they just defended and frustrated Bochum - eerily similar to watching Leicester actually seeing a limited side go away to the more talented one and completely stifle them. On the hour Bochum got a penalty and Hinterseer whacked it against the post. One of those where you just think it's not going to be their day. But they got the equaliser with 15 left through Weilandt, and in injury time he scored again so Bochum won 2-1. Genuinely celebrated that goal a lot more than I thought I would. Their fans are a welcoming bunch and I kind of understand the whole friendship a bit more. I'll be going back I reckon. I've been to three German games now and all three of them had a match deciding last minute goal.

    Without doubt our best performance of the season - only disappointment was not converting our array of chances to really hammer them. Would have been nice to stick 5 or 6 past them as we should have but will settle with the dominant performance and 3 points. Thought we were sensational - and as eloquently put above as usual by Luke we just seemed to be far more up for it than they were. We really set the tone from the kick off - we pressed them high, we got stuck in and we had an intensity to our game I haven't seen for a while. It's absolutely no surprise to me that our best performance of the season came when the front 4 were Kane, Son, Eriksen and Alli. That is without doubt our best attacking quartet and we need to hope they can stay fit because it's as good as anybody in the league when they play like that. Kane was back to his unplayable self. When he dominates like that he's the most complete centre forward around, the focal point you need to hold the ball up, win fouls, bring others into play and obviously score. He should have had another couple too. That was also the best I've seen Son play this year, he terrorised Luiz and Jorginho whilst Eriksen was pulling all the strings. Alli has adapted his game so well, he doesn't get the credit for being more than just a shadow striker but he's playing deeper and having far more influence on games. We really miss him when's out and he sets the press so well. Special shout out to Moussa Sissoko too. He's been transformed over the past couple of months and is a valuable member of the squad. It certainly helps that he's getting a backing from the fans now that he didn't have before but turning into a cult hero. He works so hard, and that energy he gave us on Saturday was essential to allowing our front 4 to play. The tackle on Hazard after he made up about 10 yards ground was synonymous of the effort from him and the whole team, but really endeared himself to those there. He's definitely best in the middle of the park and not shoved out on the right wing where his technical deficiencies are more apparent. It's absolutely no surprise to me that our performance at the weekend came with no Dembele and no Trippier #StortsKnows Finally - it's nice for just one weekend for people to have sat up and taken note. We've been written off again this year, as ever, but apart from City we are as good if not better than all the teams in this league. We've had mass rotation this year, no signings, so many injuries, no stadium, the majority of our games away from home, with 14 home games still left this season - yet find ourselves 3rd and 5 points off top. We have not always been pretty this season but certainly effective, but now with players back from injury, we will hopefully go on our annual run around this time where we are at our best. North London derby next weekend too which is massive for our seasons, will happily take a point now if offered but optimistic about the direction we are heading in. As for Chelsea, that was really disappointing from their perspective. Won't try and get a handle on the specifics because I think Luke and others have covered that very well - but they did not seem to be able to match our intensity. The game was won through the middle of the pitch and they just couldn't handle the press and the speed at which we played. Kante was anonymous out wide and Jorginho/Kovacic just seemed so slow around the pitch. Willian wasteful, Hazard ineffective and Morata no threat at all in front of goal. Luiz was a liability and whilst Kepa kept you in it he also seemed very shaky, which can be expected from young 'keepers in big games. I'm sure they will regroup and go back on a winning run, because there's loads of talent there, but I think we also showed weaknesses to Sarri. Lets hope he's not a quick learner and we didn't poke the beast, just as we did to Pep when we beat them a couple of years back.
