  1. I much preferred when fans didn't talk about assists. It's a bullshit stat that has creeped in with afew other American-isations. There's always a bigger picture.

    Just a reminder Watch Dogs 2 is free this Sunday if you log into Uplay between 20:00 and 20:45. First one wasn't great, the second one is pretty fun to be honest.
  3. I'd kill for a Davie Weir like signing.

    Haha thankfully it's all working. Had a proper look about and there is no dodgy looking capacitors or burn marks on the Mobo either. As pissed as I was for the Corsair blowing in the first place... It's a sign of a good quality PSU if it blows and only kills itself.

    My seasonic arrived today, reluctant to plug it in now! 😂

    Haha that's the exact one I had. Aside from shitting it's pants I really liked it.. which is a shame. Absolutely no coil whine and it ran pretty quietly!

    Haha maybe they just don't like ASRock Micro ATX boards as that's what's in mine right now. A cheap b450 as I wanted to see what AMD have planned before investing. If it's taken the Mobo I won't be too bothered to be honest. Aslong as the GPU and CPU are fine.

    Gold rated bud. https://www.cclonline.com/product/297627/CORE-GC-650/Power-Supplies/Seasonic-Core-GC-650W-80-PLUS-Gold-Certified-ATX-Power-Supply-Unit/PSU1720/ Aye i've heard some horror stories with the CX range. I gave them benefit of the doubt as the TX reviewed really well. Pretty sure it's a Seasonic OEM too.. just shite luck I guess. Either way it's enough to put me off buying a Corsair PSU ever again.

    Nope! My 9 year old XFX Pro died earlier this year. No explosions.. just ran out of juice. Replaced it with a Corsair TX and it barely lasted a month before shitting its pants. Having looked online it seems i'm not the only one who had TX blow up after a month... Fortunately Amazon are taking it back and refunding me. It's actually a nightmare getting a PSU at the moment as everywhere is either sold out or selling above what the PSU is worth. CCL have a Seasonic GM 650 for 80 that I'll probably end up buying at this rate.

    My PSU decided to blow up today. Fucking shat myself. Hopefully get a replacement tomorrow.. I'll greet if it decided to take my motherboard with it.
  11. Perhaps money dried up was a bit of a bold statement.. however despite the increase in revenue i'm sure Chelsea still managed to post loses of over 100m. With FFP and Champions league football no longer a guarantee every season... they can't just keep spending like they used to. Youth development has became a bigger focus for them. Regardless this thread isn't about Chelsea.. it's about Rangers and at a push, youth development in Scotland.
  12. I wasn't talking about a specific club. It's always going to be tough for youths to break into a successful/big team because clubs and their fans demand immediate results. Players don't get time to settle... So it's always been easier and quicker to buy a player than it is to produce their own.. Overall there will always more failures than success stories when it comes to youth development. Regardless that wasn't my point.. There are still massive problems with youth development in Scotland(as a whole) with certain player attributes being wrongly prioritised. As Dirks said in that video... In Holland they look for technical ability, in Scotland it's all about Blood n Thunder. Whilst it's improved, i think we can all agree it's still very prevalent in our game. I don't overly include us in that... For all the things that went wrong with Warburton, his desire to uproot our youth system helped put some good foundations in place. Fact is we and the rest of the UK can and should be doing a lot better. PS Chelsea are also a terrible example. They didn't just try and buy a successful first team.. they tried to buy a stockpile of up and coming youth players too. (Matic, Lukaku, De Bruyne). Their own academy players never had a chance... It's only starting to change because the money has dried up.
  13. Aye the worrying thing is... 20 years on, Scottish football as a whole is still making the same mistakes.
  14. Following on from the Ex Youth Player thread... I thought some people might be interested in this. It's from 2011 and is a follow up to a series from the early 2000's, basically was following the progress of our youth set up. Shows the highs and lows of trying to make it at Rangers. (Charlie Adam, Chris Burke, Jordan McMillan) Please be warned the image quality isn't great, if you know of a better quality one please fire over a link.

    Aye, that's typically what PC gamers are aiming for at the moment. Plus it's a reliable brand(Corsair) so he's not just bumped you with a cheap knock off either. Though it will probably cap out at around 2666 Mhz as I don't think the motherboard supports 3000+. No harm for your PC and in real world terms there's going to be next to no difference. Once you get it, if there's anything you need to know just keep asking questions.
