Thanks For Sharing
Adam (Mark Ruffalo) has just reached the 5-year mark in his sex addiction sobriety with help from his sponsor Mike (Tim Robbins). New-comer Neil (Josh Gad) seeks out Adam’s help hoping that he’ll be his mentor, but Neil doesn’t have the same maturity and continues to harass women at work, on the street, and on the subway. Adam has also just met Phoebe (Gwyneth Paltrow), who might be perfect for him, but Adam hasn’t been in a relationship since he recognized his addiction to sex, and Phoebe doesn’t date addicts. As Adam navigates the romantic relationship waters, Mike struggles connecting to his former drug-addicted son who has just returned home, and Neil develops a relationship with another woman in his sex addicts group, but a platonic friendship might be exactly what he needs.

New boss excited by Fratton challenge
Portsmouth Football Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Kenny Jackett as first team manager.
The former Watford, Swansea, Millwall, Wolves and Rotherham boss has signed a two-year deal at Fratton Park.
The club are in advanced talks with Joe Gallen – who has worked with Jackett at QPR, Millwall and Wolves – about becoming assistant manager.
Jackett said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for me and I’m looking forward to getting started. It’s an exciting challenge.
“This club has a passionate fan-base and they can be a 12th man for us. Hopefully we can build on the momentum of last season and continue to progress.
“I can promise that I’ll work as hard as I possibly can to make sure that we can bring success to Portsmouth.”
Blues chief executive Mark Catlin added: “We’re delighted to announce Kenny as our new manager – he ticks so many boxes for us.
“He’s managed big clubs with big expectations in the past and has plenty of experience of getting sides out of League One.
“Kenny also has a history of implementing strong structures to move clubs forward and this was key in our decision-making process. We’re excited about him bringing his philosophy of development to Pompey.”
Jackett spent his entire playing career with Watford and later enjoyed promotion success as a manager with Swansea, Millwall and Wolves

Also on that very first day I announced the arrival of Kyle Bennett and Kal Naismith to Portsmouth and a year later (2016) I had indicated that Kal Naismith had been a disappointment. A year makes a lot of difference and now Naismith is currently one of our best players
