  1. Do games ever come back on GamePass? I started playing Hades but got sidetracked for a bit and now I've gone back to play it and realised it was taken off last month. I'll probably buy it if it's not likely to come back on for a few months.

    I wouldn't say lunacy, maybe a bit overpriced but he's a very good player and you'd hope we'd get three solid years out of him. RVP was 29 when when we bought him, and we paid £24M and that was 10 years ago.

    From the BBC Sport Gossip page: I get that he's not saying he wants to leave because of the unpaid wages situation, but I don't get why something like that would be leaked unless he genuinely doesn't want to join United?! Feels to me like we just need to move on now, and try and sign Ruben Neves and Antony.

    He can also do this!

    Reminds me of this, which I actually had when I was a kid.

    The Martinez, Eriksen and Antony transfers are all dragging on forever too, Eriksen is on a free for gods sake, how hard can it be?

    You would hope so, at some point they need to balance this out...! In None Out Paul Pogba - released Juan Mata - released Jesse Lingard - released Nemanja Matic - Roma, free Edinson Cavani - released Lee Grant - released D'Mani Mellor - released Reece Devine - released Paul McShane - released Connor Stanley - released Paul Woolston - released Dean Henderson - Nottingham Forest, loan Edit: Brentford, Leicester and Chelsea are the only other Prem teams not to have signed anyone yet.

    I'll admit I saw very little of Brandon Williams at Norwich last season, but it sounds like he did pretty well. I like his attitude, I wonder if Ten Hag might give him a chance?

    Sounds like the Antony deal is getting closer (£40m, club officials in Amsterdam today to finalize deal) and the De Jong deal is stumbling, Man City are apparently interested and rumours the player is interested.

    The way things are going I wouldn't be surprised if we fail to sign any players before pre-season starts, and Ten Hag walks away before we've even kicked a ball.

    Yep, meant to mention him but you're right, he's been great and the goal was nicely taken, wasn't an easy finish but he made it look easy.

    They've looked dangerous going forward. Sancho has played okay, Elanga too. Matic has been tidy and played some nice passes. Bruno hasn't done much, I'd be tempted to take him off and put Lingard on, see if he puts in a performance that shows he wants to stay at the club.

    We are getting royally screwed over by the officials here.
  14. Well I dithered a bit but I've finally made a decision and ordered a Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo today! If anyone's interested you can get 20% off (max discount £75) at selected sellers at Ebay until end of today with code "BAG20". So I get it from the Peter Tyson Ebay store for £424 in the end. Just need to get a pre-amp now and I'm good to go. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/234311602782
  15. Thanks @Lovelyman that's reassuring to hear. I have some Cambridge Audio S30 bookshelf speakers. I think ther were £130 for the pair so a budget speaker, although they reviewed well and they sound nice: https://www.whathifi.com/cambridge-audio/s30/review
  16. Thanks for that, as for my plan, probably somewhere between the two. I have two daughters who are big into their music at the moment and keen to start collecting a bit of vinyl, but are both unlikely to use it more than a few times a week (plus one is currently at uni). I'm keen to start buying some of my favourite albums (mostly 90s alternative stuff) and will probably put a record on maybe every other day? I haven't got loads of disposable income though so won't be building a huge collection, at least not in the short term. I could probably stretch the budget to £600 including a separate pre-amp if it was going to be a good investment. I'm trying not to go down a rabbit hole with this but even just googling "phono pre-amp sound quality difference" brings up a whole host of opinions! I'm also concious that I'm going to be putting it through an AV receiver to start with and some fairly budget speakers so they will obviously limit the sound quality too.
  17. I was looking on Sevenoaks and they have a couple of interesting deals. They have that NAD C 558 with a NAD PP4 phono pre-amp worth £169 for £458 (saving £110): https://www.sevenoakssoundandvision.co.uk/p-370402-nad-c-558-turntable-nad-pp4-phono-preamp.aspx They also have the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo with a free set of Sennheiser CX wireless earphones (worth £119): https://www.sevenoakssoundandvision.co.uk/p-50962-pro-ject-debut-carbon-evo-turntable.aspx Would it be a noticeable difference in sound quality between say the Behringer pre-amp and that NAD one? Or I guess if I got the Pro-Ject I could always sell the headphones on here or Ebay to bring the cost down bit?
  18. Thanks for the responses @Lovelyman and @cubik . My amp doesn't have phono so looks like I probably will need a pre-amp, I know of Behringer from guitar pedals, interfaces etc, so will happily get that one if I end up getting a turntable without one built in. The NAD looks interesting, not heard of it before but I have heard people mention the MT85 so will look at that too and try and narrow it down! Thanks again!
  19. Hi, wasn't sure which topic was best to ask this, I'm looking to get a turntable and could do with some advice please? I've got a budget of about £500 as that seemed like it will get me a reasonably decent turntable, and maybe one that I can upgrade in the future if needs be. After a bit of research it seems these two are popular at this price point: Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo or the Rega Planar 2. I already have some stereo speakers (Cambridge Audio S30) and an AV receiver (Yamaha RX-V373) that I feed my Xbox and Switch through to my TV. What I'm wondering is: 1. Is the AV Receiver going to be good enough sound wise or do I need to invest in a proper Stereo Amp for music, something like this? Cambridge Audio AXA25 2. Should I worry about having to manually change the rpm on the Rega Planar 2? I've never owned any vinyl or a record player so I've no idea how often I'm likely to need to change the speed and if it's going to be an issue! I'll only be buying albums so mostly 33 from what I can gather? 3. Is there a forum favourite player at this price point that I should be considering? Or is one of those two a better option? Thanks!

    Maybe just the agent doing his thing? Get United interested, start a bidding war, and force Chelsea to pay a higher fee/ wages even though Chelsea is his nailed on first choice?
  21. Argos have stock this morning: https://www.argos.co.uk/product/8448262?clickSR=slp:term:xbox series x:1:283:1
  22. I'm the same, I ended up changing to custom controller config and not having anything mapped to right stick click as I got so fed up with myself for doing it!
  23. I’m in but whenever I try and add it to my basket it just does nothing, says my cart is empty edit: says out of stock now
