    Think I've lost 5 years of my life watching this England game. I could turn coal to diamond at this rate.

    Neither side been firing when on goal.

    France will be happy to face either of these to be fair.

    Think Wargames, the only way to win is not to play.

    Ah well, a step too far.

    Young squad did better than I expected, good show overall just a bit sloppy on the night.

    To be fair the only consolation is that we won't be the ones being humiliated by France on Sunday. We're not ready for them yet. Yet.

    Edit: On the plus side I don't have to listen to it's coming home being constantly sang by people who don't usually follow football. That song's been doing my head in.

    Especially since it pales in comparison to the best football song of all time

    I get the same problem. Heard a couple of groans, then it went strangely quiet...

    I'm annoyed at myself because I've been such a cynic and yet after that first goal I let myself believe. Never believe. Kill the fairies.

    2nd half showed Southgate's tactical immaturity. Back 3 under pressure, wingback can't get forward, needed to switch to 451, push the back 3 right and bring young to leftback, trippier and sterling on the wings, henderson holding, Ali and lingard forward supporting the giant forehead of Kane. But I guess a million hours of swos makes anyone a qualified couch coach.

    My million hours of SWOS told me that England should have tried banana shots from just inside the opposition half.

    Football's coming... NOPE!...

    They could still manage 3rd place, which England haven't managed since... well since the Women's team came 3rd in 2015.

    Getting called a c##t by an idiot with no understanding of their GDPR rights.

    Yes you do in fact have the right to a copy of your medical records, all of it, it doesn't even cost you anything. No you do not have the right to simply rock up to the Opticians and demand all of it there and then on the spot, I don't even have access to 'all the data' since I'm not the only guy you've seen. Nor do you have the right to order your medical records destroyed after the copy is handed to you (no really, they tried to tell me to do this). You especially don't have the right to be given expired, unsigned prescriptions so you can go and order shite off the internet, even when you get 'your data' you won't be getting that bit.

    On the plus side, when they demanded my name and told them I was J, they responded with I want your full name, to which I got to say my full name was J the C##t.

    Oh well, forwarded to legal, they did ask for a copy of their medical records after all...

    Although we are U17 and U20 World Champions. That's promising for the future at least.

    Royal Fail :grr::grr::grr::grr:

    Decided to actually put some effort in to gameplay recording and streaming, so bought a capture card put it in my 2nd pc and it doesn't get detected turns out my dad had damaged the pins in the socket :wallbash:

    So replaced it with a Ryzen 3 1200 and thrown an old 780Ti in it, put the capture card in and works great but then it turns out that the capture will only pick up audio through the HDMI.

    Tried various software of duplicating the sound so it goes through the HDMI and USB, but all it did was mess up the audio and the mic was playing all the sound through it so everyone could hear themselves.

    Way to fix it is to use a mixer with various cables etc, so ordered it all and 90% of it arrived no issues, but the Behringer Hum Destroyers that I bought of Amazon, should have arrived on Saturday but didn't so the seller has sent out another set, which again have not arrived although they may arrive today.

    Sent the seller a message on Amazon again this morning, saying that they have still not arrived and that they might arrive today but if they don't, that they would need to send replacement's via Special Delivery, I have offered to send a payment to them because it's simply not fair on them or myself that Royal Mail keep loosing them.

    That's assuming they've been sent. Had proof?

    Yes - one package going missing is (from a quick google) somewhere from 1 in 100 to 1 in 1,000. Two going missing (assuming independent) is therefore from 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 1,000,000... I'd be thinking that they hadn't even been sent
