Finished Batman Arkham Knight recently which was really enjoyable, absolutely loads to do in the game to keep me interested.

Gonna wait for Uncharted 4 to come out I think. Never been into the Metal Gear Solid games.

What is the next Rockstar game?

The BBC sportsday feed reverting to type again today, with their expert journalists posting pictures of empty press conferences for this weekend's games.

And I forgot to add the rise of the 'heat map'from matches, showing where the players were running to and from. So useful and insightful FFS!

Welcome to American-styled news reporting, fellas - where 'the news' is all about filling content and creating excitement over absolutely nothing, when instead they could be reporting about what's going in places like Benin or the Central African Republic, bu who the fuck cases about Africa, eh?

CNN are the bloody worst at doing this. I honestly don't give a flying fuck about the latest Kardashian breakdown.


Yep this is the way it's going sadly.

The world does not need 24 hour news channels.

I forgot to add the 'gossip' column on BBC sports football page. I could handle it when it was about transfers, but it's morphed into a load of claptrap about what footballers tweeted the day before. Oh and the latest Paul Pogba update which was the same as yesterday....

The BBC are really getting into gertcha territory these days.

It used to be that it would have to be a pretty major event for the 'Breaking News' banner to unfurl itself; now it's getting an airing 5 or 6 times a day, the latest being 'Paula Radcliffe denies cheating'. Is that really essential, breaking news?

Then there is the online sports coverage, especially on match days, where they seem to generate their own sports news by interviewing their own journalists, or asking people to tweet questions to their 'expert' Phil McNulty. All finished off with a cheeky pointless tweet from Lineker, who'll add something useful such as 'That Aguero......he's not a bad player you know'

Gary - gertcha!

13. Cookie - Choose Me (F.O.S. Mix 1) [Z Records]

An amazing track, looking forward to listening to the rest of the mix!

Fair play to Wenger. Not spending for the sake of it, especially when you see how the prices are going. 50m for Cavani really?

Not one mention of Luton which makes me wonder how it gets voted worst place in Britain?

The area around Anfield is the worst place I've been in in the UK. Had to walk about a mile to the ground and we were hassled by about eight 10 year olds threatening to stab us etc.

I have had a PS4 for about a year now and have no complaints with it. It's a slick machine - starts quickly, easy to navigate round and has loads of apps for videos etc. Some great games are starting to come out now such as Batman and then Uncharted 4 next year.

I borrowed an Xbox One from my nephew for about a month earlier this year and was so underwhelmed with it. A lot slower than the PS4, especially for installing new games - always had to wait absolutely ages for them to install and load. I'm glad I never purchased one


im going to frinton on sea today .

can any other board members beat that ?

I think I can, I'm off to the Linslade canal boat festival later. Trembling with excitement already!

Against my better judgement I viewed 'Benefits by the Sea' last night on ITV and was treated to the story of 'Disco Dave' who gets £140 per fortnight in benefit and spends every single penny on alcohol and fags.

In his earlier days he was a burglar and stole to fund his drinking.

Now at what point do we say enough is enough and stop giving out free cash to people like him?

One of the guys who posted on social media said he was in the middle of an 80 hour shift. Is that legal?

Agree with point above, I don't think doctors are the problem

£6m for Schweinsteiger is superb business.

Can someone ban Greg please. He's brought the mood right down in here.

He's right about Slovenia though. That mix stunk of Ginsters Beef and Onion pasties.

Sorry guys, there's always one isnt there!

Is there anyone who doesn't like this?

If there is, they should be killed.

Hands up over here.

I can see that everybody is giving this a massive thumbs up but I just cannot get into it, and I've played it a good few times.

Whereas with London there were so many memorable tracks on each disc, I didn't get that vibe with South Beach.

Slovenia, Miami and South Beach are my least favourite of the series so far

I wonder whose bright idea this was

i read about this yesterday - literally wtf

if Milner is the standard of player we are looking for to wear no.7 then might as well give up now

Never understood the fuss about wearing a shirt number that was previously inhabited by a club legend or not. Does it really matter? More media nonsense I reckon.

Inherent Vice - finally got round to watching this the other night. Trailer made it look really interesting but I found it hard going. Couldnt really tell what was going on for large parts of it.

I'm planning on watching The Master which also has Joaquin Phoenix in it - its been out a few years but I never had the chance to see it, and I've heard good reviews

Thinking about fucking it all off now and going to NOW TV, tbh i'd rather head to the boozer to watch the games i actually wanna watch.

Yep pretty much, 7 quid a month for Now TV rather than rather than whatever Sky are charging now, much better value

Arent the sports extra though? I have purchased the day pass for Sports for £6.99 but obviously thats just a 24 hour thing; is it £7 a month for the other stuff i.e. entertainment and movies?

I played a midweek night at my student union bar, was about a 4 hour set which was really tough at the time because I'd only previously ever played 'out' for about an hour at a time, and so a longer set was really challenging. I was almost running out of records by the end, and to be honest I can't magine it had much of a flow to it!

Although to be fair, the BBC have chucked all of their resources at the FA Cup this season and given it so much coverage from day 1.

Still doesnt make me want to hear the thoughts of Phil Neville or Martin Keown though. Thank God Garth Crooks and Robbie Savage werent about!

Could you imagine how insufferable the coverage would be today if Liverpool were in it?

We should get neutral's backing for that reason alone.

Any worse than some of the coverage the BBC churned out today for Villa? The montage of Villa supporters spouting nonsense such as 'Win today, and we can die happy'. Bigging up Jack Grealish as if he would single handedly win the cup on his own.

The BBC sports page and its incessant coverage of all things to do with womens football. Does anyone care? It gets more coverage than other sports that probably have 10 times the fans and interest.

Today they had a 'Breaking news' on the homepage to reveal who had won the womens footballer of the year award!

I was at Pacha, Ibiza in 1999 and Seb was playing the main room. Bizarrely he played the Three in One mix of Cafe del Mar but proceeded to mix it out before the breakdown, despite the crowd clearly loving the track!

I was invited to a night last Friday  with him and Tall Paul playing, in a small town called Harpenden near Luton. Not exactly  noted  for its  club  nights!

Slightly veering from the original topic, but can anyone recommend any decent online resources that can help the average bedroom DJ in using equipment, what each of the functions does on a mixer, recording sets etc

I've had 1210s for about 15 years now but never really graduated beyond playing for fun. Never moved onto CDs or mp3s, and never actually recorded/uploaded a mix on the internet. I look at all the gear that djs use now and can't help wonder how it all works and how you learn how it works!

Just picked up a cheap Numark mixer and I am hoping to have a muck about and mix up some sets for home listening. Any resources available on how best to do this via laptop etc?

Thanks for all the suggestions btw lads. The reason I've plumped for Germany is that I had such a good time in Hamburg and was impressed by the country generally. It's looking like Munich is the front runner - been warned off Dortmund, lot of people saying its not all that bar the football
