    Video capture + motion detection recommendations?

    A bit of an obscure topic perhaps, but hoping the SoSH hive mind might be able to point me in the right direction. My dad loves watching bluebirds and successfully watched his local pair have four successful broods last summer. For Christmas, my family all chipped in and got him a Hawkeye HD...

    Coaching Carousel - Winter 2015/6

    There's always rumblings about potential changes, but it feels like there are quite a few massive changes happening this year. The recently-confirmed "Pep-stakes" have only made the game of musical chairs more chaotic. Changes that have already happened in the past month: Pep Guardiola's...

    EPL Game Thread 9/12-9/14

    Everton absolutely taking it to Chelsea. Up 2-0 after 22 minutes and could have had a couple more if not for some great saves.

    Premier League Predictions 2015-16

    Less than 48 hours until the Premier League season begins.   Top Four I see the top four teams as very close to each other. It's really difficult to determine where to place each team, and there's no order that would come as a surprise to me at the end of the year. That said, here's my best...

    Chelsea 2015-16: No Way, Jose

    Jose is at it again.     Now it is true that Chelsea haven't net spent much money this summer, or last year (due to sales of Luiz, Lukaku and Schurrle) but they might be the only club that doesn't really need to. Sometimes that happens after net spending £267 over a four year period.   Never...

    Summer Transfer Prediction Thread 2015

    The overwhelming majority of summer transfer "news" is baseless speculation and rumor-mongering. Here's your chance to make haphazard guesses about where players will end up so that if your random guessing is better than someone else's random guessing, they will think you know more than you...

    Arsenal 2015-2016: The One That Got Away

      The 2014-2015 season was a success for Arsenal, almost without qualification imho.     Yes Wenger played fast and loose with defensive depth and it cost the team last fall; yes there was an embarrassing loss at home vs Monaco that de facto knocked them out of the Champion's League; yes the...

    Best coaches in the world

    The news about Klopp's resignation got me thinking about where I would rank him compared to other top coaches. This is always a tough thing for me to get my head wrapped around, and I honestly don't watch enough soccer outside the PL and CL to have an informed opinion.  How would you all rate...

    What an awesome Sox game last night.  No surprise most of us missed the Swansea-Everton 1-1 tie at 7:45 am.  And if you want a game between two teams known for high-tempo pressing, Monchengladbach-Dortmund is on right now.   Coming up in the EPL:   Saturday 10a - Southampton-Hull 10a -...

    Game Thread March 21-23

    Last games before a two-week international break. Oh how I loathe those.  From the club's perspective, it's two weeks with a far less qualified manager who has far less incentive to worry about a player's fitness.  It's two weeks with travel to potentially far-flung places (London to Buenos...

    Most hated 11

    Not exactly a thread with hard-hitting analysis, but one of the joys of fandom is assembling a group of "villains" that you root against.  Here's mine.   Vertonghen - Pepe - John Terry - Ivanovic Robben - Busquets - Nasri - C. Ronaldo Diego Costa - Adebayor   Coach: Mourinho   Ashley Cole, Mark...
