    Just read that Sheffield Utd might be putting out some academy players tonight.
    Whatever changes Ralph makes, and he did alright with the changes against Newport, I hope we have a scare free evening so that I can concentrate on watching Manhunt, with Martin Clunes. First episode was spellbinding.

    Unfortunately the commercial channels and BBC iplayer aren't available here in the Netherlands I'll have to see what I stumble on whilst surfing the net and catch up from series 1. We'll watch Silent Witness part 2 of this week's story.

    Re the footy, I'd like to see Tino and Kyle in combination on the right, Romain and Moussa on the left with Armando plus Adz or Che up front.

    I'm sure Ralph will be thinking something very similar ahead of the game tonight. If we get the job done in 90 minutes he might even be able to catch up on Vigil on the coach home. He will be taking this one very seriously.

    Going by Lyanco’s Instagram, I think he’s got the nod for tonight. He is quite clearly bonkers though, so who knows?

    I feel like this is a rookie question but is there any way of getting Solent radio if you are nowhere near the analogue catchment area? Last time I tried, the digital feed cut out during the game.

    I hope SFC send out as strong a team as possible to win this tie as a winning culture breeds confidence.

    I'd expect to see a similar team to one that battered Newport in the last round.

    The Saints' OS usually has a 'live' commentary (a few seconds lag), which is basically re-broadcasting Solent's commentary. I've tried listening to the radio, and the web site commentary, to see if they are the same (hey, I don't get out much, since the restraining order), and the commentaries are the same, but a few seconds apart.

    Right, back to watching this paint: It won't dry on its own...

    If you get a vpn and switch it on with an IP address for the U.K., you can get BBC iplayer, can’t you?

    I’m in the U.K. so it’s a bit of a moot point. However, I have a vpn program called “NordVPN” where you can ‘point’ your IP to a particular country (I generally keep mine to the U.K. so I can get things like iPlayer with no issues). If you have a U.K. IP address, then, I would have thought (I’m no tech expert) you can sign up for iPlayer with the Beeb, then access it …..
    Hopefully someone on here who’s more techie than me can tell me thus will work or if I’m talking pure bollocks!! :emoticon-0102-bigsm

    I haven't had any luck with VPNs. I get an "it appears you are using a VPN so **** off" or similar message.

    Just tried it from here - utter bastards :emoticon-0121-angry
    They want you to disable the vpn before you can access iPlayer :emoticon-0101-sadsm
    Well, then, with a vpn, you can do what I do to avoid adverts, download a torrent from somewhere and play it via a usb stick. Not strictly kosher admittedly (though I don’t bother with movies, only tv programmes which I can get through the tv, generally, anyway) - my daughter, who works in copyright, refuses to discuss it with me :emoticon-0112-wonde, but my view is that it’s harmless.
    And, before anyone says anything, I absolutely refuse to download music that way. I’m still old school, so I buy CDs, digitise them on to my iTunes and listen to music that way.

    Che to play the full 90m, he needs to grab a couple. I see him as being roughly equivalent to Armstrong. I think Broja will turn out to be a cut above the rest.
