not so, Ed. I took a bird to the game a couple of seasons ago when we beat you 3-1. suffice to say I got my oats that night

Did you take her up the Arsenal?

was going to take her up the London Eye but thought better of it as she had just eaten

Mills - the B Side to Perception is better, surely?

Went last year had a cracking night

Ed's entitled to his opinion. After all, his beloved Blues get an absolute pasting on here and rightly so. They don't even have a Tube station with their name on it, sure sign of a runt club with no meaningful position within the framework of London footballing history.

Even their nearest station favours their local rivals

Thought the battle for 4th place was a good game.

why do the media still tout Liverpool as top 4 contenders?

...and West Ham as a team who won't be fighting it out in the relegation spots

they do though?

The profit model has changed, but the mentality of the artist most likely never will.  They've got to put a roof over their head and food on the table.  Making music takes time and costs money (albeit less than 10 years ago)

I understand that, but what difference does it then make to them to give a track that isn’t currently available away instead of letting it fester in digital hell? None whatsoever

Sad indeed. Especially since I'm always willing to pay for stuff i like/want.

absolutely - theres shitloads of stuff that is not available digitally that I would gladly pay money for

Do most of you still use mp3's when buying digital? I think in this day and age with internet speeds being as they are and drive space costing far less then it once did, it is an insult that mp3's is still the default and that you have to pay extra to get a lossless format.

Lossless formats should be the default (again).

completely agree with you, although Im really anal when it comes to things like that. cant remember the last time I bough an mp3

The 22 minutes+ 'water-break' bollocks pissed me off during the West ham game today - now watching MotD it seems like every game was subject to it...

That shit can fuck off.

What was this about?

Just because of the 'heat'?

It was fucking embarrassing being back in London two summers ago when they were making panicked announcements on the tube about looking after anyone who faints and advising people to drink water. It was fucking 29 degrees, not 49.

more americanisation of the game, friday night football and now time outs. awful

Some great comments here. Allow me to pitch in with a slightly controversial question: who really considers the financial aspect of what an artist receives when they stream or download material? If you really really wanted a track but you knew the artist wasn't getting fair do's money-wise, would you flat out deny yourself having it?

This is an ethical issue right to it's core.

you'd like to think that the artist really really wanted you to have it too though right?

Let me answer your question with a another question - bad form I know but fuck it eh...

How many artists consider the fact that, as they sign their contract, all the emotion/sentiment/effort/love/skill that they've invested into their work will count for nothing the day after the contract expires and it (potentially) becomes obsolete and (theoretically) unavailable to any cunt on earth?

the feeling I get is that a lot of artists would let their work rot in some far away HD somewhere than people would have it for free

If you're an up and coming artist being approached by a label - don't sign their contract unless you're happy with ALL the terms being offered - once you sign it you just look daft if you subsequently try and whinge about lack of money from streaming revenue.

yep this is it - there was an article a few months ago, I forget who wrote it, but it was replying to all the people digging out Spotify for their 'unfair' treatment of artists when in fact it was their signature that had enabled Spotify to use their music in the first place. Blame the label not them.

FWIW Im with Grant - I also happily pay £10 a month for the convenience of it, and I also plough a lot of money into Traxsource when I can, buy the odd physical cd ( Live In, Balance etc. ). Artists can bleat on about Spotify all they want, but it just doesn't wash with me Im afraid.......

So would any club that has a bottomless pitt from which to buy from, Ed.

There's no gravitas in it, so stop pretending that there is.

Spurs can't manage it though Yant.

That's because you're small, sh*t and no one with any minerals wants to join you.

Sh*t club, sh*t fans and in a horrific part of London.

Good luck with that.
