  1. The TV buyer's guide

    This will quickly turn into a Samsung vs LG/Panasonic/Sony fanboys thread. I still maintain that you can't beat an LG or Panasonic for picture quality.
  2. The TV buyer's guide

    I will be disappointed on the day that my Panasonic plasma gives up. I look at TVs in Curry's and don't see anything better than it unless you're willing to part with upwards of £2000. Considering it only cost me £750 with a bluray player thrown in 6 years ago, I'd rather not let it go just yet. Blacks are far superior on it compared with what's available at its price now, you really need to go top end to notice an improvement. That being said, it all depends on your budget. What are you willing to spend? You can't beat LG/Panasonic for picture quality on top end TVs imo. Or do you want a Samsung with all the smart apps thrown in? I'd go for picture quality over smart apps every time but make sure you look for a TV that does SD and standard HD well since that's what the majority of sources broadcast in. I'd like Netflix in 4K but I'm not willing to shell out on a TV for it just yet and don't fall for 4K demos on panels which will look nothing like when you sit down and watch the TV at 9pm on an evening.

You can guarantee a decent price. Richer Sounds might have a few deals on. Try there.
  3. Stoke (H) Match Thread

    Adidas Power Soccer. You could always score goals like that. Butland must've been playing the classics.
  4. Stoke (H) Match Thread

    So lets put Albrighton at RB who's been playing **** all game in his natural at RW. But it's ok, he's on a yellow. No danger there whatsoever. And James, perhaps he has time to make a forward pass now.

    Has James made more than one forward pass in the game so far?
  6. Fallout 4

    I've finally finished the main story of this whilst trying to take my time and reach level 50 before this happens. Unfortunately, I'm level 45 and feel that the game was badly let down by a poor ending and I'm not sure I can be arsed to finish up yet more locations, more raiders, more mutants and more mirelirks just to get the required XP for level 50 and chalk off that achievement. There was little choice in deciding how things ended up imo. Sure, side with a faction of your choosing but then get taken down a series of quests with little option to change how things pan out in the end. I went with the institute and was left underwhelmed by it all in the end. Some things the game does very well but the story telling aspect, as with many open world games these days, was poor.
  7. Stoke (H) Match Thread

    Silva and Iborra are miles ahead in every department over James. Strange not to be playing a full strength side - but maybe that's a sign of how far we've come. The bench is ridiculously strong.

    I'm beginning to believe.
  9. The 50 Worst Premier Players Ever!! (by FourFourTwo)

    He played well as part of a central three. He was used as RWB on occasion but struggled there. He was decent and pretty quick. Impey and Savage eventually played RWB.

    Owen didn't exactly handle those balls well did he? Slow starter.
  11. V The Blades - Match thread

    Wait 20 minutes and try reddit soccer streams. Alternatively, watch beIN Sports 4.

    beIN Sports 4.

    Looks as though there's a few streams via reddit. beIN Sports 4 are showing it.
  14. Player Meet & Greet/Signing Session

    The bottom line is had this been a paid event, you would have expected a lot more. As it stands, a free-for-all is exactly what you've got. The club take the high ground, it's free, we can do what we like, if you don't like it tough. The headline from the club even reads "City Trio Enjoy Popular Signing Session". Who exactly are they catering for, the players or the fans? It should read LCFC fans enjoy signing session meeting players they look up to and cheer on week in week out. Now, as fans, the question we have to ask ourselves is would you rather it be something you paid for, if in return you knew exaclty what it was you were getting for your money? I'd expect many fans would say yes to that, for example pay £8-£10 to be given an allotted time, something activity based around current and past players, a few autographs on a print perhaps and then a photo with a couple of players to finish. Heck, they could even charge additional for the photo, just like the elves do in the grotto! Why restrict it to the club shop? The ground has lots of function rooms it could stage something like this in. No problem. Organise it for the summer, end of season. No, no you say. Too sensible! Who exactly is running this side of the club?
  15. Player Meet & Greet/Signing Session

    Look, it's not overly difficult to organise is it? The system for this is exactly the same as it is when you take your kids to see Santa for example. Or, at least, it should be. You book online, pick a 15 minute slot and go at your allotted time. No need to queue, no panic, just turn up when you've booked your time. Join the conveyor belt of people and have an enjoyable, relaxed time. But I'll stop talking sense right there. The shop at LCFC doesn't do sense.
