|They Shall Not Grow Old - Peter Jackson|
at 13:15 17 Oct 2018
Anyone else keen to watch this?
Been seeing lots of clips on Social Media and I have to say, it looks truly mesmerizing. Hit the Cinema yesterday but looks like it's just a one off showing. Will be broadcast on BBC1 on 11/11 for the centenary and has been brought to schools across the UK.
Can't wait but I reckon it's going to be a very sad insight.

As it was judged, was a f*cking penalty all day long. What a bollocks decision that was.
Reminded me of the time Lee Cook was hacked down in the Milwall box at the Den and the ref sh*t himself before waving it away.

Another Leicester like surprise package this season?
Play with a lot of condence and look like a team that knows what it's doing and with a player named Success, you cant go too far wrong. Totally bossed Spurs in that second half.
Terrible to think back when we won the Championship there in 2011 and where both clubs are now, worlds apart. We blew our chance and theyve absolutley nailed theirs.

I've encountered a ridiculous problem and for life of me I can't solve it.
I bought a new Desktop PC a year last year. The perfectly good working Monitor I had on my old PC does not work on my new PC. It just does not pick up a signal from the PC and just gives me that blank screen bollocks. My monitor only has one VGA input socket. I've tried...
VGA cable from my PC to the Monitor = No signal
HDMI to VGA adapter cable to the monitor = No signal
Display Port to VGA adapter cable to the monitor = No signal
Tried the same monitor on my brother in laws PC via VGA = Works like a dream.
I've tried my PC on my brother in laws Monitor via HDMI = Works like a dream.
I've done about £30 now in trying the different variants of cable connections and all to no avail. Has anyone got a solution other than buying a new bloody monitor, or can anyone diagnose what the problem is?

New foreign owners, FFP restrictions- rumours of Bruce being replaced by Thierry Henry., what could possibly go wrong?
|So come on then, 1990 - Your memories|
at 10:49 11 Jul 2018
I drove past my old Middle School today on my way to dropping my son off to nursery. It seemed rather apt as I was a pupil there in 1990 as an 11 year old kid the last time England reached a world cup semi-final. Shell suits were in, trainers were bling and naturally there was always one kid in the class who had the latest Nike Air's and the Official astronomically expensive England shell suite whilst most kids had to settle for market knock offs and Gola's on their feet. I remember the whole thing being very exciting back then. The hype, the Italy 90 Subbuteo set my older brother and I have gone 30/70 on at Woolworths, me with my pocket money and him with his vastly superior paper round money and that Orbis World Cup 90 sticker binder which my brother still has to this day.
I did have vague but fond recollections of the previous world cup in Mexico four years earlier but during that tournament, often had to give the England matches a swerve as they were on too late in an evening. So Italia 90 was the first time I was following a World cup with all my friends as genuine England fans knowing the players the teams and the expectations - it was brilliant and seemed like this would be the norm. England doing well in tournaments, being one of the top nations and Gazza of course had captured everyone’s attention. West Germany was always going to be a massive ask and I remember being transfixed to the old Toshiba wooden boxed TV in our living room as the two sides thrashed out that 1-1 draw. England had saved their best performance for that match and gave it everything but the luck deserted them when it mattered most. Tears in the evening but going into School the next day we were all so proud to be supporting England and wanted to see much more of Gascoigne. Ridiculously, I was 19 the next time I’d see England at a World Cup and football and life in general had changed so much.

Here we go again, the media begin their obligatory hatchet job on England right before a major.

Anyone use Philips Hue at home?
I'm thinking of installing it bit by bit in my house. Although the initial outlay is quite expensive (light bulbs at the end of the day) the trickery and overall ambience of the colour and smart synching looks superb. I've a home bar and this looks like a real winner compared to halogen lights currently in use. I'd like to start there and progress to the whole house eventually.
|Off Topic - Family Trip to Disney Land Paris - Is it all that?|
at 21:01 10 Jan 2018
Never been that fussed with Disney Land but the wife has always wanted to go and our son will be nearly 4 by December 2018 when we're thinking of going and has been banging on about Disney Land for the last year as he see's the ads on TV and is into Star Wars, Micky and all that jazz. We tricked him last Spring on our annual trip to the Isle of Wight, telling that Back Gang Chine was Disney Land and I think he bought it but this year, it's unlikely to wash. (I realise 3 years old is quite young for a once in a lifetime trip but we're needing to take advantage of term time holidays before he starts school)
Getting a self driving (ferry included), self catering deal for 4 nights 5 days coming in for £990 for the three of us on their website which includes a couple of minor extras. I'm tempted but thinking 5 days there might be overkill, I was bored at Chessington and Peppa Pig World this year after a few hours.
Anyone been, any tips, do's and don'ts and is it really worth the spend?

Thought after 2007 we were through with all this. But yet here we are, a small club drifting towards League 1 without a paddle. I was in my early twenties in 2001 and enthusiastic but now I just cant be arsed. Ive not been at all this season, a decision derived from finacial reasons more than lazyness but as much as enjoyed it in the past, Ive not missed it and instead been going to watch my local non league side where you can buy a cheap beer in the clubhouse take it outside and drink it with the other sad bastards watching non league football. I enjoy it. After you can have a little bit of banter with the players in said clubhouse. I get in for a good cause of a tenner and kids under 16 are free with an adult. If QPR toss off the FA Cup next week as per usual, I think I'm done with it for a long time. I'm sad to say it but I just dont get the vibe I used to.
|Kenny Dalglish DVD|
at 20:23 19 Dec 2017
Had the flu since last week so within the compounds of my pit having missed all Christmas social festivities this year, I've treated myself to some DVDs as a present to myself - Kenny, "89" and the new Micky Flanagan release. Just watched the documentary about Dalglish and it's very very good. I always thought he was a cold miserable bastard but it does enlighten you to what a decent bloke the man really is as well as what a great player he was too. Some of the footage from his Celtic days is excellent. It's a very well made documentary and you by no way need to be a Liverpool fan to appreciate it. Of course there's the obligatory footage of QPR getting torn a new one at Anfield in 87 I think when Bryne dallied on the ball before letting Barnes have a field day with the Rangers defence. Much of the it is related to Hillsborough as you'd guess but again it emphasises his persona and the impact the tragedy had on him at the time and no doubt will for the rest of his life. To think he was there in the players tunnel that day not knowing where his son was for sometime with the knowledge that he was in the Liverpool end somewhere, harrowing stuff. Overall I thoroughly recommend this DVD.
"89" was interesting too but not as well put together as Kenny I feel.
