The PD king or this round is @Bluewolf who raked in a PD of +20 and was followed very closely by @nudge on a PD of +19. @Cazza gets a mention for lowest PD of the round with a -3 and @Pyfish gets the Mr. Consistent award by not having an PD difference between this round and the last. Are we going to see a new champion? Is Lucas going to retain his title this season? Or is there something devious waiting in Round 5 to upset the balance? Final round questions coming up at End-Of-Day. Thank you everyone for playing.

    Mont Tremblant was fun - went dogsledding and finally got to see frozen lakes again, something that is hard to spot nowadays in southern Ontario. Global warming is a thing

    Glad it turned out “okay” @Carnivore Chris. Look after yourself. I think I burnt out a couple of months ago with work and life. It reached the point of being very negative and snapping at my bosses and resulted in me breaking down in front of one of them. It all became too much. I took way more on than I should have been and I also bottled stuff up and didn’t seek support from others which resulted in an out of the blue moment or two. I also later developed a lot of physical symptoms that I’m still getting over but all testing I’ve had have come back fine. Stress and anxiety can have serious implications and we all need to take time to reset or switch off. I use this forum as an outlet I guess, sometimes going off and being angry at little things which I am not usually like in person. It’s quite a realisation that maybe all hasn’t been too well in the past. I have so many good things ahead of me and now I’ve moved into my very own home with my partner, I’m hoping this further helps me. Didn’t intend to post the above, but it’s important to just get things off the chest every now and then.

    2021 JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW INFORMATION: It's time to think ahead - the transfer window will be open in a matter of days. Will you jump straight in at the chance to move? Will you wait it out until the final hours? Will you stay put and accept fate? - The transfer window will open at 00:01 on 1st January 2021 and will close at 23:59 on 31st January 2021. - You can apply for a transfer via PM to Pyfish at any time during the window - A maximum of ONE transfer per person for the duration of the window - Transfers, on approval, will be posted in the Gloryhunter thread TRANSFER COSTS If you played last season, the options are a little different this time around: FREE TRANSFER to another team (via randomiser) 0 points TRANSFER to an OCUPIED team (your choice) 2 points BID for a move to an UNOCCUPIED team 3 points (min) More details on each type of transfer can be found below... FREE TRANSFER: If you opt for a FREE TRANSFER, you will be given a team via the randomiser from one of the following leagues: PREMIER LEAGUE - ENGLAND BUNDESLIGA - GERMANY SERIE A - ITALY CHAMPIONSHIP - ENGLAND 2. BUNDESLIGA - GERMANY SERIE B - ITALY LEAGUE ONE - ENGLAND SPL - SCOTLAND LIGUE 1 - FRANCE LEAGUE TWO - ENGLAND LA LIGA - SPAIN LIGUE 2 - FRANCE NATIONAL LEAGUE - ENGLAND LA LIGA 2 - SPAIN EREDIVISIE - NETHERLANDS For example, you could be currently at Liverpool but find yourself at winless FC Emmen in the Eredivisie via the luck of the randomiser TRANSFER to an OCCUPIED Team: You can choose to move, at the cost of 2 points, to any other team that is currently occupied by another player. For example, if Deadlinesman was at Manchester United, you could move there for 2 points to join him. BID for a move to an UNOCCUPIED Team: *NEW FOR 2021* - You can make a bid for a move to ANY team in the world that isn't currently occupied by another player. The only other conditions are that there is a minimum bid of 3 points and maximum bid of 10 points. Naturally, a more 'successful' team will require a higher bid, whereas any supposed 'lesser' team would only cost you the minimum 3 points. You can bid as many times as you like throughout the window but once a bid has been accepted, you cannot move again. For example, you could wish to move to the currently unoccupied La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid and you would PM me with a bid of 6 points and I would either accept or reject. @nudge, @CaaC (John), @Drew, @Tommy, @londonerlilie, @DeadLinesman, @Lucas, @Deco, @Bluewolf, @Eco, @Mel81x, @Stan, @RandoEFC, @Batard, @McAzeem, @Rucksackfranzose, @Dr. Gonzo, @Toinho, @Robbie

    Sorry for the delay people. I was going to let you know how my 'injection' went, but I gave been put on a lower list - mainly due to a blood test that shows a high level of antibodies and that somewhere between March and now I have had the virus, lived with and beaten it - not sure how, never had any indication that it was there and my 'bubble' of 3 of us are all tested positive with antibodies so we are somewhat safe for the moment. The nurse told me that there are more old people like me and that if it is easy for you to get a blood test then do it as there are quite a few of us feeling happier today! Don't ask why or how or anything - I just feel that my years in the RAF when they pumped all sorts into me in the Far East - including a visit to Christmas Island in 1957 seems to have strengthened my immune system somewhat. Watch this space (if you want)

    XG doesn't take certain intangible factors into account though. Example. Timo Werner is in 1-1 with a goalkeeper. He hits it straight at the keeper. XG will say this was an expected goal. However, we know it's not, as it was Werner. Shit metric.

    Probably Ridley's original Alien (1979). Fresh concept, I was very young and impressionable and it was very good considering the budget they were working on. Still gives me chills. Might even throw Carpenter's The Thing (1982) in there because apart from the animatronics the very fact that you have no idea what the ending could have been is great director/writing work.
