  1. WiFi Boost

    Looked at that too. Gets very good reviews as does the Linksys one. I specifically wanted the 4 ethernet ports and the dedicated backhaul but depending on mrdave's requirements they're probably more or less equivalent
  2. WiFi Boost

    I bought this recently https://www.amazon.co.uk/NETGEAR-System-Coverage-Network-Satellite/dp/B01KVRRSNI/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1512398228&sr=8-3&keywords=netgear+orbi It's not cheap but it's absolutely transformed our Wi-Fi coverage. We a fairly large 3 story house. One unit on the top floor, the other on the bottom. Strong coverage EVERYWHERE. All the deadspots are gone. The units also have 4 ethernet ports each which means you can connect non-mobile devices (TV, XBOX/PS4 etc) directly to the system. It has a dedicated channel for backhaul so is much faster than apparently similar alternatives.
  3. Craig Forsyth

    I agree he wasn't great. He's about 75% of the player he was before the injury, which still makes him better than Olson. I'd stick with him for now because it's only by playing that he's going to get back to the player he was. Prior to the injury I can barely recall him EVER getting beaten. Baird's a safe option but would offer little or no attacking threat down that side.
  4. Radio Derby Sportscene

    He certainly did. I remember listening to one match where Richards and to a lesser extent Hall referred to referee Steven Lodge as "The Mincer" rather than by his name throughout the entire match. Completely unacceptable even then...

  6. Hillsborough - Six Charged

    Perhaps a reprise of "The Truth" would be appropriate, since it actually would be this time.
  7. Official: Tom Ince joins Huddersfield Town

    Who said anything about hating Ince? Never met the bloke. It's based on watching him every home match for the last two seasons. So based on direct observations - the absolute opposite of 'pre-conceived ideas'. My pre-conceived idea when he signed was that he would be a top player at this level, based on what he'd done at Blackpool, and I was delighted when we signed him permanently. It's the evidence of watching him play that has led to the conclusion that I'd be happy to see him go.
  8. Official: Tom Ince joins Huddersfield Town

    I'm probably in a pretty small minority here but personally I'd be more than happy to see Ince go. He's undoubtedly got a lot of talent but he's just not the kind of 'team player' Rowett's system requires. For example, if he PERSONALLY loses the ball he tracks back like mad, determined to try and win it back but if someone else gives away the ball he often doesn't bother. In other words it's all about him! His decision making with the ball is similarly self-centred. He freqeuuently shoots from absurd positions when he has little or no chance of scoring with team-mates in far better positions. To compound this, he also sometimes decides to try and pass for no apparent reason when he actually IS in a good shooting position. Weimman, Russell and Anya are all hard-working team players who will fit with Rowett's team ethic much more than Ince ever will. Hopefully we can use the money we get for him to strengthen further in the wide positions. Sell sell sell...
  9. Finsbury Park Mosque Incident

    Maybe the underlying problem is not religion itself but hard-right ultra-conservatism? I doubt the perpetrator of this latest atrocity is any more religious than Thomas Mair was. ISIS are effectively ultra-conservative hard-right Muslims. They're no more representative of the vast majority of Muslims than the DLF were/are representative of the vast majority of Derby fans. Perhaps religious belief makes it more likely that an individual will hold hard-right, ultra-conservative views but it's a tiny minority that do and they're certainly not one and the same thing. See for example the attached I came across recently... https://public.tableau.com/profile/neil.richards#!/vizhome/MuslimPopulation/Dashboard1 What's needed is for liberal, tolerant, pluralistic people in ALL communities to work together across community boundaries to defeat this. The alternative is a continuing spiral of senseless killings...
