vlc is good.....used it across the years a fair bit.

but I use GOM Player this past year or two......excellent (no need for additional downloads). 

and the other free player I use, is Media Player Classic Home Cinema.  Also excellent - and the best to use when a video's audio is low and hard to make out (which is sometimes an issue on laptop's speakers/audio card).

the only format I struggle with, across all the players, is flac.  Mind you, I can never figure why any music fan puts audio into this bizarre format. 





In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

Big game today to test our progress. Hoping for a win but even if we lose as long as we put in a shift and a good performance I'll be happy.

Come on you redmen!!!!

I'm going for a one nil to the pool.

An unlikely Skrtel header from a corner.

Oh and for Torres to pull his hamstring

Doing his ex-Atletico team mate a favour?
Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

maybe.

I was starting to celebrate - before realising the net wasn't bulging.  And I could not figure why.

I am afraid the talking point at half-time was this awful miss.

It was a tap-in. 

Now I know some *tap-ins* are far from simple (and the know-nothings in the media don't appreciate that).....but this was a simple one.  Surreal. 

Ronnie Rosenthal is somewhat off the hook now.

It's definately 'more' at the moment. What's that 4 in 5 games?

Roy found us a diamond.

Still not convinced he was.  Roy said on numerous occasions he'd not had time to really scout players properly in the short amount of time he'd been at the club prior to the Summer window shutting.
Also, he mentioned something along the lines of finding out where his best position was (in one of his 'infamous') interviews. And if he'd known all about the player, at least enough to feel confident in paying the money we did, why play him so badly out of position?

Poulsen and Konchesky, for obvious reasons. Jones had been a target of Fulham's previously.

I think there were a few players that had been scouted by Macia, who he knew to be strong choices of Rafa's and Pursestrings went with it. Likewise, Joe Cole. England international on a free transfer seemed like a 'no-brainer' to our 'football managing' MD.

I'm not trying to put Roy down, but Meireles is not in the price band of players he would have known about through his Fulham days, and the limited time he had available and all the comments he's made about the squad doesn't seem to stack up that he saw what was needed and had time to decide who fitted that criteria.

you could well be right, Tes.  Maybe a Macia find.

i love him, Tes.  Best volleyer of a ball at the club, imho.

As for the 1-0 result.

The King always rules in London.

The estranged former prince sulks away into the dark winter night, grasping his 20 pieces of silver in his boney hands.

That game has aged me ten years!!!!! Great performance. Outplayed them all over the park. Soo proud of the boys. Kenny has worked magic with this team. Closing down all the time and never giving up. Every single player played well. Actually they didn't just play well they were all immense.

 A special mention for carra who was out of this world. Who's saying he's past it now?!!!

This new formation suits the players we've got down to the ground.

Absolutely over the moon!!!!!!!!!

I did feel a little sorry for Fernando today. Strikers only have a 10-13 year career and he's over half-way through his and hasn't won anything at club level. I can understand why he has left. All his Spain team mates have won honours with their clubs except him (and Pepe of course) and he must be desperate. He can't afford to wait for us to rebuild.

That was a brilliant performance today. Reminds me of how we played in spring 2009 under Rafa. Who would have thought Kenny could turn things around so quickly? Praise must also be given to Steve Clarke. And all without our two new buys.

Just 6 pts behind a CL place now but probably 9 given Spurs have a game in hand. More than gettable given current form. Happy days indeed!

Feel sorry for Torres?!!!!! My bottom. He deserves all the crap he gets. The disrespect he showed us on plastic flag tv will never be forgotten. I'd love it if Chelsea fail to qualify for the champions league next year and we qualify instead. Hope his remaining days are filled we hamstring pulls and broken legs.

A fantastic display from the lads.  Played with intelligence and composure.
