    So, after trying to fill the void of football, I’ve been watching old City matches from dvd, blu ray, sky planner in anthology album & date order. So far up to 2010 from 2002 I would conclude the following:


    Richards was actually a decent defender before becoming a tv personality!

    Bellamy seriously underrated

    Unlucky with Bojinov injury

    Loved Petrov

    How exciting was it when Robinho signed!

    Shook hands with Shinawatra at M40 services – excited at the time, but wouldn't be now!

    What a loon was Adebayor!

    Who were those fans in Blue Moon Rising and their bloody van!

    Loved Tevez

    Michael Johnson , what a player and so sad he didn’t make it

    So excited by Elano signing.

    I thought Joe Hart was our goalie but lots of matches with Shay Given in goal, My memory is f**cked up!

    SWP still had it on his return

    Unfortunately it’s true But McManamananamna did actually play for us!

    Thank goodness we replaced Corluka with Zabaletta

    I look like Sven!

    Tomorrow's viewing, happier times!

    While I concede that he appeared in our shirt I cannot agree that he ever played for us!

    Good man. chin up pal that's the spirit.

    Myself I have ordered Trivial pursuit and a compendium of games to entertain me when I am trapped in the house with the wife, she probably says the same thing about me. Our microwave broke 2 years ago and we replaced that it's being picked up today and the good lady is as excited as a kitten in springtime ( It's the normality of buying the unit that she likes I am sure)

    In addition I have gone mad on ebay ordering PC cases RAM and SSD's so that my unfinished projects can be completed, there are motherboards and power supplies littered around the house in boxes that will finally get an outing where someone might make use of with Netflix or **Cough some other platform.

    Agree about Bellamy, he was better than we credited him, he was a twat at times but he certainly could play.

    Is it really as easy at it looks on you tube to build a pc? I do fancy doing it.

    It's very easy, it's modular mainly. The challenge only lies in making sure you get a decent power supply to power your components and that those components are compatible, getting bang for your buck kicks in after that and you do that by narrowing down what you actually use it for.

    PSU
    Motherboard
    RAM
    CPU + Cooler
    SSD (Hard Drive)
    Graphics card if you don't want to use an APU or Intel HD Graphics that are built in.
    And install an operating system.

    Take about 3 hours to build including installing the operating system and you get a lot of satisfaction because you learn along the way and you actually did it yourself.

    *It gets a little more complicated if you add an AIO (Water cooling system) or raid arrays but it's achievable even for a novice. give me a PM if you want me to suggest parts suited for you or ask on the board there are some very capable people on here.

    Cheers mate I’ve asked a few questions at overclockers, depends on what budget I go for.

    I always ask a customer what they need/want it for and work it from there, overclockers can be a great source of information specially when you become adept at the basics and you then want to tinker, updating bios, dual booting, running virtual machines and servers.

    People who are gamers like to get the best parts they can afford and it can get very expensive, fair play to them if they can afford it, most other people can get a pretty good rig up and going for under £400 with some future proof built in.

    Ye I mainly play world of Warcraft to relax myself so I don’t need a huge amount of power I’m far too old for these FPS games these days.
