    Okay, I'll hold my hands up, I obviously missed that first post. Although I really don't know how you construed my reply as implying it was possible for a black man to be Luke's son.

    For the record, I had no idea that you thought the character would be Luke's son; how the fuck would I?? In my last post I had to jump to this conclusion, essentially for your sake, but you really didn't make it clear that that was what you were on about (until you edited one of your posts). All you said that you were disappointed that he didn't "fit in" because of the "key information" that was his skin colour.

    Being black limits his possibilities?? Do you not read your posts before pressing submit? Are you just assuming that every character in the new film is directly descended from a character from the old films? Because, as I said before, we have hardly any information about the new characters, therefore I see no reason to think that they should "fit in" based on their skin colour.

    Well there's one key bit of information... he's black. Uh, what? Are you seriously saying that you're disappointed that there are black people in Star Wars??

    Nah, all the refs are useless. Plus, they get far too much protection thanks to the rules that were put in place when they were a bunch of part time volunteers. Hopefully, once we're shot of Blatter they can get some help from technology, although if Platini gets in it might get worse rather than better. All credit to Howe and Elphick who were both very diplomatic in the post match interviews. Quite a few managers and players would've been screaming bloody murder!

    Got away with that! Bournemouth will feel very hard done by.

    PWM Fan Controller Software

    Can anyone recommend a software fan controller? For some reason one of my case fans likes to chug away at 100% if left unchecked, even though my temps are fine. I used to use the program that was supplied with my motherboard but it doesn't work in Windows 10. I've also tried SpeedFan, but it's absurdly unintuitive and I can't seem to make it do anything at all.

    Surely there's not enough information for us to know how any of the new characters fit in with the established ones? I don't necessarily think all/any of them have to be related to the existing characters.

    Will he be the first manager to be fired this season? I wish, but I think the Chelsea fans would riot in the street (again!)

    I wonder which random member of the backroom staff will incur Jose's wrath for today's result.

    I always thought it was a stupid idea (one of many!) in the prequels to state that Jedi couldn't have families. They pretty much established in the originals that force sensitivity was hereditary, so why would you limit the amount of prospective jedi? Or was there some sort of creepy, emotionless breeding program going on behind the scenes?

    Yeesh, how ugly is Everton's away kit?

    It's only entrapment if a police officer tells you to commit a crime, then arrests you for it.

    Yeah, I agree. They're just generally a bit lame. Must be making some money though as a sequel has already been greenlit.

    Saw Fantastic Four today. I didn't think it was as offensively bad as a lot of the reviews seem to suggest but it's pretty weak. For one thing, very little actually happens. The whole film seems to be a setup for another inevitable franchise and consists almost entirely of the origin story which, of course, we've already seen in the previous films. There isn't even any real conflict until about 15-20 minutes before the credits roll. I also saw the new Mission Impossible recently. It's more of the same Tom Cruise action stuff but it's all very enjoyable. Rebecca Ferguson's accent got on my nerves a bit though; it's not terrible, just slightly off. Also, the repeated use of Nessun Dorma in the score was a bit weird, but I'm not sure if it's just because I associate it so heavily with football.
