WHO Poll
Q: 2022 Summer Transfer Window - How many 1st team players will we sign before August 6th
a. None as Sullivan will wait until the last week before he gets his scattergun out the cupboard
b. A couple of freebies paraded as superstars, usual hype to follow
c. I'm more optimistic as surely they know we need to strengthen, 3-4 with decent money spent.
d. Who gives a toss as we have a great squad already, I've already ordered the new replica kit, socks and all and can't wait to wear it at our first game, down the pub of course, I bleed claret & blue

Advice Required - Televisions
Had the kitchen ripped out, wall down, proper job
Mojave Desert dust storms are clearing and as it approaches completion I want a television out there

Problem being, I don't have a Scoobie or inclination to read spec's which I won't understand - in my day things plugged in the wall were turned off, not 'powered down'

So I consult the wisdom of WHO - what do you blokes recommend?

So, what I need

1/Something that works off the wi fi to pick up BT Sport, to which we subscribe, and streams to which I don't
2/Reasonable picture quality
3/Ability to connect to X Box for when my lad comes over and wants to run his games through and his Sky 'access'
4/Ability to connect to a lap top
5/Sound system connectivity

And of sound systems, is Sonos the wireless way forward?

Apologies for being a Luddite, but in my childhood TV's had push buttons, three channels and the leap of technology was colour, Channel 4 and teletext

Thought the general opinion on sound n vision stuff was to wobble off to Ritcher Sounds and ask there.

I forgot that so thanks for reminding me.

I've had a four slot Dualit with with 2 toasted sandwich holders for about 20 years now. What do you think I am, an amateur!

I remember that Sir Trev effort, stuck in the stanchion (tremendous long lost football word)

I saw Gazza score against THAT goal against the Scotchers on the banks of the Wye, 15th June, awaiting the midnight start to the season - watched upon a little pocket tv thing that I acquired a batch of

Life and tv's were a quite simple thing back then

I remember watching Sir Trev score THAT goal for England in Hungary on a 6 inch b&w tv with manual tuning (like an old radio). Picture quality was crap, it was like there was a snow storm in Budapest, but it's one of my best remembered goals from watching on TV.

Funny you should say that Easy old son
What do you blokes think of Sonos?

And, more immediately, what about these Firesticks? Took a look and there are various, what do I need?

Don't need a kettle, just having a Quooker installed and the toaster is bought, a Zwilling

Well done Crass, you'll never regret it. Never go cheap on your TV, laptop (or PC) and your kettle. Buy cheap, buy twice.

Re: Advice Required - Televisions
Crass I've got a 65 inch Panasonic from a couple of years ago and it's a great TV. As I have to show clients their videos I edit for them in as high as possible quality I've also got a Naim and ATC surround setup that cost eighteen grand.

However, my brother bought a new telly this year and wanted me to hang it on the wall for him. LG make virtually all OLED screens (the best possible quality) and then sell them to rival companies that put their own electronics in them.

He got an


...and my jaw dropped straight from the box to the wall. You can't really tell how good a TV is until you get it home and it's not surrounded by other tellys but somehow LG have made a TV that's straight out of the box better than my calibrated Panasonic.

£1600 at Richer Sounds.

I went with my mate to visit his sister's place in peckham when I were a lad and they had one of those and shown us how placing tin foil on one side made the machine think it's a 50p coin.

One can only imagine the fun to be had each visit to that estate when the company came to collect the coins from the system.

The brother in law gave us the telly to take down the stairs and challenged us to smash the screen "bet you can't smash the screen" he told us offering no incentive whatsoever other than the pure bliss to be had from wanton destruction, which gave us much needed play in throwing rocks at it for a few hours.

The spiritual growth from this early life lesson was immense.

Anyway Crass, with all the confusing array of options kindly volunteered here, don't forget to specifically ask the man in the shop "for a telly, that can do stuff and things" and you shouldn't go too far wrong.
