    I'd rid Pogba, Martial and Lukaku in the summer. They aren't good enough despite their combined £200m tag and the never give 100% and never will for the badge. How any club would want someone like Pogba is beyond me. He's an average footballer with a bad attitude.

    Best 16:9 Monitor?

    Cheers guys! The ROG Swift either PG278QR or PC279Q seem to be the best ones on the market and I've also been looking at the Acer Predator XB271HU which is also deadly with G-sync, 165hz and also under £500 now. The Dell S271DG is also on my list as reasonably priced with a good response time but only a TN panel. Is VA really not that noticeably different from IPS then? If so then that could open the doors to a few beefy Samsung ones that are very well-priced. Trouble is these days is there isn't too many places around on the high street where you can make a comparison side by side on the spot.

    There’s too much dead skin, we need players that truly want to play for the club. We’re slow off the ball, awful at creating chances and awful at finishing them. Fuck knows what we’re doing, it’s not fucking good enough that’s for sure!

    Best 16:9 Monitor?

    You screwed up by specifying that aspect ratio which makes people think you're talking about some oddball stuff, whereas 16:9 is the most common one nowadays, the kids today don't even know anything else. To be honest your list of requirements pretty much hits the Swift on the head, @phil bottle has one, I'm sure he'll chime in at some point. Gigabtye have also just launched theirs: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/gigabyte-aorus-ad27qd-27-2560x1440-144hz-ips-freesync-g-sync-tactical-gaming-monitor-hdmi-dp-mo-000-gi.html Your requirement for IPS is restricting you a bit to be honest, if you went for a VA you'd be opening up a whole list of more affordable ones which probably perform just as well, like LGs offering, which is 32" as well: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/lg-32gk850f-32-2560x1440-va-freesync-2-hdr-144hz-1ms-widescreen-led-monitor-mo-14z-lg.html#tech_specs

    This thread kinda got buried and I'm still having a dilemma resulting in a nosebleed with this. Any help would be much appreciated.

    PlayStation 5: Sony reveals first details of next-gen console

    Sony will definitely deliver again in this department but I wont make the same mistake in buying into the new gen from the start and will probably wait 3 years before even considering a purchase. The PS4 didn't really get going until 2016 and the first couple of years were a real struggle. I'll probably pick up a PS5 Pro😎

    Well, good you're not a sponsor then 🙂 True fans support their team through thick and thin. Plastic supporters can fuck off! (Reckon Man Shitty has room for more) Didn't get to watch the game today, but checked live results from time to time. United need to get rid of the primadonnas only bitching about money than playing football.

    What's Your Online Gaming History?

    Great updates above and all down to your great thread @Spacedeck. My gaming started far earlier than the days when I was bought my first PC (see my OG post in PPR for that) but I think my first ever online experience was on a dial up talktalk connection with Delta Force. It had a help guide that went over your keyboard so you knew which buttons to press and I managed to get a few sniper kills from afar with connection lagging all over the place. I used to keep playing offline with PC games like Hitman, incredibly hard and got past about 5 or 6 levels whilst playing Championship Manager (PC) and Super Mario Kart (SNES) round @Findmartin's house. The next online experience that pretty much solidified my console love as the beautiful Xbox and Xbox live. Having to live with an amazing Grandad most of my life that was just like my Dad meant he got a better connection with Sky and I ended up on a couple of games initially - Rainbow 6 (yes, the one where your team would listen to set commands) and Halo 2. Both games were incredible online, the trolling was an experience to hear, especially when I could hold my own and won games regularly in TDM and Control. Xbox Live was possibly the best thing to happen to me. It doubled my games overnight as back then, games would have fantastic offline modes and then an incredible online experience. Links 2004 (golf game) was possibly the best one I was for being really good. I could race through 18 hole courses in minutes scoring birdies and eagles on every hole. The connection meant I stayed loyal to Microsoft and got a 360. Played even more online. Then met the wife and going from a gaming front room with 4/5 TVs, all my consoles everywhere to nothing was...strange. but it's what I needed to grow up a little. Come 7 years later, family created, house owned, mum bought me a PS4 after not ever having to buy me anything expensive over the years. I cried my eyes out, played for about a year with work peeps and then Destiny happened. Seen Stretch play it via a Facebook like. And then it's been FG ever since. Best. Ever. Place.

    Magic Tricks

    Theres a YouTube star called Zak King that my lad watches and hes brilliant with his videos and trickery. Not exactly the same magic tricks but great to watch nonetheless.

    Notre Dame Cathedral on Fire

    Someone was in telly the other day arguing that 3 rich French families have given a ton of money to restore it and she felt they should've done it anonymously. I really don't see the problem in the fact they get a little publicity. Has anyone else got that money to give? I still dont know who they are so if it was such a big deal then wouldn't we here about them more? Another little example of the current PC culture imo.
  16. Oh I totally know that I'm the minority, I kinda like Jack of all trades, master of fuck all games. Equally, I now know how it feels like to be @phil bottle and his love for Fallout 76 It just goes to show, not all 'Games As A Service' can be saved after a god awful launch period. RIP.

    PlayStation 5: Sony reveals first details of next-gen console

    Like most of the past decade of gaming, it'll likely come down to who gets the best exclusives.

    How anyone can support the shower of shit that is United is beyond me. If I was a sponsor I'd be seriously considering my options at this point, they don't deserve to be a team.

    Everton currently 4-0 up against Man Utd! This will be 6 defeats in 8 for Ole sadly. 4 wins in a row for Everton I think which is some fine form especially beating Arsenal and Chelsea in that run plus West Spam.

    Wireless issue

    What router is it? And is the light flashing or constant?

    Wireless issue

    Funny issue. My internet lamp on my router is red, and should have been green obviously, but I still am online on mobile, PC and PS4. Did a speedtest and got 31/11 which is what I pay for (30/10). (500/500 fibre coming later this year finally!) Isn't this a bit odd?

    Crispys Controller Hospital

    Bit of an update. Working on one of @GazzaGarratts controllers. Replaced triggers, but there is still a dodgy analog controller that is jumping a bit. I've ordered a few and we'll see how they go. Should be ok, and hopefully another controller fit and well. My middle mouse button has been a bit temperamental of late. It's a Logitech G402. Lovely mouse but annoying when you try and use the button and nothing happens in overwatch. A quick bit of googling suggests it's an Omron B3F-1000. Ordered one off the 'bay for £1.21 but they sent 2, so 60p each. nice. First thing to do is find the screws, in this case they live under the mouse skates. I've got them off, but maybe I'll order some fresh ones as they have a few kinks in, they were well glued on there. Next phase is to locate the button. Easy peasy, it's the white one under roughly where the middle mouse button is. Tear down the mouse so I can get to the solder. Using my new super duper solder sucker to remove solder. It's a pain to do so no pics. I find the best way is to add more solder, melt it and then press the button on the sucker and it hoovers up the solder (it's a spring loaded widget). Now the button is removed. Clear the holes as necessary and insert new button. Now to solder it in place. The gloopy stuff is flux that helps the solder flow. Nice simple job, no new mouse needed and fixed for £1.21. I love to fix things and it's always nice to save having to buy something so you can put the money to other stuff.

    Destiny 2 Raid Revival

    Lol , he found a clan who were doing the challenge, joined it, got it done, got Rivensbane and rejoined FG. Tells me he’s the first in the clan to get Rivensbane, but I told him technically he wasn’t in the clan when he got it ! Back me up on this guys!

    Game of Thrones

    I finally got to watch it a little earlier today and it was as you said. It was a good setup for many of the characters and lots of things I felt could go either way whether they live or die.
