I am gonna be frank, it can go take a long walk off a short pier.
It’s just a terrible idea by the rich clubs designed to keep them earning the big bucks and take the lions share of the TV money.
I think it shows that football has strayed too far from the fans and what they want.
Let’s face it, the way things are now, more than ever it feels like a massive stitch up with the big six wanting to ride roughshod over everyone else in the Premier League and their desire to get more money because they are the big stars of the league.
I think it’s time that football and the organisations called their bluff.
Explain the consequences, but enter into no further talks, I strongly suspect that this plan is tactic to get more money from the Champions League. And if they continue on this route, the day after the season ends, expel them from the leagues, and dock them 30 points.
And if they want back in, they start at the very bottom.
I am out sick of the big clubs throwing their weight around and demanding the lions share of the money, trying to dictate the direction of the game, and only seeking to dement their dominant position.
As fans we need to say no to this and stop enabling them.
They want their own league with blackjack and hookers, fine, they can piss off and have it, but they don’t get to play in our league.
I have lots to say on the subject, but, boy am I mad about it and I don’t think Lindsay and Megan would appreciate all the swearing.
I managed to pull together the last parts for Megan’s PC this week.
And on Friday I built it, using some bits cast off from mine and some select budget pieces.
The build she has is:-
- CPU:- Ryzen 5 3400G
- Motherboard:- ASUS ROG Strix B450-F
- Memory:- Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 3600mhz DDR4
- SSD:- Crucial P1 1TB
- PSU:- Scavenged 10 year old EVGA 750w (this will be replaced first)
Not a particularly amazing build, but she wants to run The Sims 4 with it and it should show ok at that.
Future plans for it, will be to add a GPU and a Capture Card.
What I Am Modelling
I started off the week by painting the terrain from Pariah Nexus, which involved a lot, and I mean a lot of drybrushing.
Before finishing off the terrain from Kill Team Arena.
I then started on the Heavy Intercessors and the Captain with Master-Crafted Heavy Bolt Rifle for my Blood Ravens.
But whilst various stages of those were done, I painted the last of the 3D printed terrain that Nikki printed for me.
And I painted the Battlezone Objective Set for 40K, which is going to live in the Vigulus based table I am soon to paint.
On Sunday I got the Heavy Intercessors and Captain finished.
That means everything from Pariah Nexus is painted.
I then painted some bits for Zone Mortalis, a bunch of supply crates, fuel barrels and pipes, but I will show you pictures of those next week.
So what’s coming up for my next week?
