Why oh why did I not put my life savings on Leicester tonight? Surely one of the most obvious results in recent history. Liverpool cannot work out how to play lower half teams and will always, without fail, give the opposition a sniff of a few goals. Lucas at centre half? I'm a 36 year old pub player and I would fancy my chances against him!

No doubt we'll wallop Arsenal on Saturday now and things will be rosy again.

Ordered. 5 discs delivered for £17.49. Amazing value

About 3 hours into Mafia 3 and enjoying it. Reminds me a lot of GTA Vice City for some reason.

Well stoked for Red Dead 2 and The Last of Us 2 when they eventually come out!

Cheers Grant. I hadn't thought about just getting the cable out on an ad hoc basis. To be honest I don't play online that often but I suppose it's worth getting all of the game updates etc that come out.

Now to start looking for a 10m Ethernet cable. Thanks again.

Random PS4 techy question. I'm with virgin media and used to have a small blue ethernet cable running from the virgin wifi box into the PS4- allowing me to go online, get updates etc.

I've recently moved the lounge around so that the TV and PS4 are at the other end of the room, but the virgin box is still in the same place as its restricted by where the wifi cable comes into the room.

Can I simply buy an extra long ethernet cable and run it from the wifi box to the PS4 or is there a neater way I can do this without loads of cables running across the room?

As you can tell I'm not that tech savvy!

Is Klopp still bringing home the prem and the champions league along with Robert Lewandowski within 3 years? You know? Like he said he would. LOL

When and where did he say that?

Quite a few hours into Tomb Raider on PS4. Really enjoying it, absolutely loads to do and amazing graphics to enjoy

Sean - sent you a PM

^Just tried to pay for a subscription and there is a message on the main page saying they are having trouble taking debit/credit card payments. Tried to go for a 24 hour subscription as a taster - will try again another time.

I bought a subscription for mystreams.tv mate.
All HD screens, any amount of channels, every conceivable sporting event live with perfect stream. Sky and all the yank channels etc.

70 lids for 6 months. Opens for membership once a year, not sure if its still open. I joined last month.

Is Sky Sports included? Registered with them but seems US-centred? I'm only really after Premier League games, not too fussed about other sports


all sky sports channels included mate

Thanks. Will give it a try.

Nick- thanks for the tip, will try a month subscription to mystreams first and see how it is.

I think I have Tomb Raider, Watch Dogs 2 and Battlefield 1 coming my way for xmas.

Really intrigued on watch dogs as I spent time in San Francisco this year so will be cool to see how they've done it

On the SoundCloud iPad app, am I right in saying that you are unable to view any info about a track or set I.e. A tracklist? Every track/set I view doesn't appear to have any tracklist? But it does if I log in via Firefox for example

Same as the iPhone app, you can only view tracklists etc on the desktop version

Cheers Matt, bit of a pain that!

Going through that list, I have heard of 49 of those djs but of that 49 I have only heard 9 of them either live or radio mixes. Never heard a Dixon set yet!

Special mention for Chris Sutton on MOTD. Comfortably the worst pundit ever. Sounds like Sasha on LNOE. Right up there with John Barnes.

When he first started commentating for the BBC last season I thought that too.....but kinda used to him now and he's not the worst. I like that he doesn't try and sugarcoat things like most of the other guys - clearly says that Alli conned the ref for the Spurs penalty. Danny Murphy or Jason Roberts would be sitting on the fence with that one probably.

I did watch the Barca Real match yesterday and had my first experience of Ray Hudson commentating. Wow. How anyone can stand that for an extended period of time is beyond me!

Looks like being yet another amazing game from Rockstar. Cannot wait.

Have never heard one of his sets. Any recommendations for a first time listener?

I don't watch too many movies, but did pick up some 2nd hand films recently which I enjoyed.

Gravity - visually stunning

Drive - very good IMO, helped by an excellent soundtrack

The Bourne Legacy - woeful. Didnt really know what the hell was going on in it? And I was a big fan of the first 3.

Do these guys actually do any stand up though? They just seem to rotate between TV panel shows. 8 out of 10 cats, mock the week, taskmaster, would I lie to you etc. These shows are on every night and I swear it's just the same 10 people on rotation.What a life!

Just returned from Ibiza this morning after a 3 night stag do in Playa den Bossa.

We had a great time and a cracking laugh BUT there were some things that really got my goat.

Firstly, the prices.They really are taking the piss now. 80 euros for a ticket to Pacha to see David Guetta (I didnt go, just saw the tickets on sale). 26 euros for 2 beers at Ushuaia, where the only beer they sell is Heineken. Everything and anything is a minimum of 10 euros. Surely it's got to implode on itself soon?

Secondly, the commercialisation. It is so much more prominent than I've seen it before. Posters of DJ's on the roads, DJs advertising watches, after shave etc. Do me a favour

We visited Ocean Beach, Ushuaia and Amnesia. Ushuaia was a joke. Some bellend called K$Mir (or something equally tragic) prancing around acting like he was this amazing technical DJ, playing some absolutely rotten music. And 5,000 people going mad for it.

Had the 'privilege' of watching people following Wayne Lineker around Ocean Beach, posing for selfies and hugs.

However we had a great time at Amnesia last night, Fatboy Slim was in his usual party mode. Also heard some great tunes at our poolside bar, which was rivalling Bora Bora for atmosphere.

I'm back again in 2017 for another stag do, I'm starting the saving now!

Doesnt matter what day it is. Coverage of it always seems so underwhelming, especially when considered against the hype that it generates.

I sat and watched about 5 minutes of Jeff Lynne's ELO. Dear God, thousands of people standing there as if the end was nigh. It looked and felt awful.

Is it just the TV coverage or does it look like the audience are not enjoying themselves?

Every year I catch snippets of the festival on the BBC and when they pan to the audience it always looks like a bunch of people standing around chatting to each other. Not 'aving it, not dancing, not singing along. I'm talking about the main acts obviously.

CD8 is superb, the mix from Pig & Dan into BOg is brilliant.

On the whole, I wasnt a fan of disc 4 or 7 but the rest of them are very good. And to be honest, the whole 9 disc package is a great set from start to finish - its actually finding the time to listen to them in order!
