  1. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    British gas bombard me with calls about a smart meter for months, i give in just to stop the calls. And then when he arrives i find out that because my cooker is unsafe(won't light itself) he has to cap my gas supply. Thank God I had a plumber coming anyway to look at my rads, otherwise he was gonna chop the local pipework to bits and cap it. Note to self, next time tell the company harassing you offering something for 'free' to get ****.

    Well fp1 told us little, other than the McLaren is properly slow. Every team other than sauber had a driver go almost a second faster than Alonso, who seemed to be running relatively problem free. Ferrari clearly playing some games at this point.

  4. Battlefield 1

    Just popped this on after not playing any games in a couple of months. Should have eased myself into something else, couldn't hit a barn door, amazingly I still went positive playing assault just running at objectives. Was missing people about 5 metres away.
  5. New TV advice

    I just got myself a 55" 4k hdr LG for £650 and have to say I'm incredibly impressed. The upscaling in particular is brilliant, I've only got standard terrestrial atm whilst I wait for internet, but the comparison from SD on my old 47" hd TV is unbelievable. The picture is fairly crisp even with the SD inputs on a bigger screen compared to noticeable blur on my old set. Whilst I'm still not sold on there being enough 4k content the prices are very reasonable now. Saw a samsung quantum dot hdr1000 suhd? Whilst I was looking as well and the colour definition was unbelievable even next to a hdr TV, twice the price for a smaller TV though.

    The removal of the token system is a start, but as Honda are proving it's benefit is reduced if you can't test it properly.
  7. Formula One - 2017

    Considering the relatively short amount of time f1 is on TV the coverage of pre season testing is ridiculous. Arguably the most interesting time of year because of the unknowns and there is no way to watch it and little speculative insight. I know the greater secrecy likely means more surprises at the first race, but surely they're missing a trick here to create a bit of hype and excitement. Personally just hope the McLaren is competitive at some point this year, and we see a few teams fighting it out. No doubt Mercedes will just walk it again though.

    I don't think you can point to his first 12 games and praise him for a 'minor miracle' just because we've been dreadful since the turn of the year. We didn't win much under RDM but we didn't lose much either, there wasn't a giant chasm missing, a bit of composure in the last 10 minutes would have done. Our drop off in form has been unbelieveably bad. I don't know if you've read the interview above but Bruce sounds desperate, I appreciate how honest he is, but it's obvious he knows you can't spend the amount we have and keep losing week after week, he has at most 3 games to get a result imo. If we do end up changing managers I'd like them to be here with at least 6 games left in the season, just to be able to properly assess the squad.
  9. Sam Johnstone

    If this guy was our player no doubt people would be more willing to give him time to prove himself, but as it stands he's a short term loan, and as he arrived we had our worst run of results of the season with him making poor performances. At this point even if he turns it around it will mean little for us(unless our results are unbelievable), and he won't be here next year for us to benefit. I don't see what we have to gain by persevering, that's why I'd rather see bunn in and as soon as playoffs and relegation are an impossibility give sarkic or others some minutes. If Bruce does stick with him I hope when our season is dead we do try to give some more youngsters game time ready for next season.

    Stupid by grealish, but I still don't understand the subs, took away any possible threat we had in a game we needed to win. Disappointed.

    If there was any doubt, Johnstone is trash. Jesus wept

    This co-commentator is garbage, Latest useless comment "If he hits it on target it's in"

    Just looked at the table thinking if we won the next two we've still got a hope.
