Hey all.
Looks like I didn't miss much of a game yesterday.
Usual blurb on last GW here
And our fantasy table

Mighty Mike Dean has it all to do & today could be his chance at Burnley. But then Taylor also has a gig this week at Everton, so Mike has to be on his game.
The ref's table stands thus

The Manchester Shifty game's on here first, so that's what I'll be watching.

I am a Bournemouth fan today, that was a ridiculous ruling.

not a single match is on regular TV and I can't get Peacock to load. 

I don't want to watch all the farking games on my laptop.

NBC can go choke on its pee cock in hell.

It's been confirmed that there'll be a trophy lift next week after Liverpool hosts Chelsea. Sounds like it will be something unique (from yesterday):

Do you have a TV with a browser?
If so browse to streamsgate dot tv & pick your poison.
Usually Weak_Spell is the most reliable streamer. Slight time lag but fewer pop ups than the rest

I have little hope because of Spurs' road record compared to Newcastle's home record.
 
2020-07-15 1:01:58 PM  
Ugh, choice of matches.  Thinking Burnley v Wolves, will be better than Newcastle v Spurs, but the channel's not coming through, so I may be forced to watch the latter match instead.

Silva opens the scoring
 
2020-07-15 1:06:23 PM  
And City already lead against the Cherries

fark you silva. what a strike though.

I still remember that Leicester title-winning final matchday with Spurs against Newcastle and I'm sure I don't need to remind you how that played out.

A bit like Leicester in that meltdown match, except the winning team was the one that went down a man.

Spurs' finish that year was atrocious.

Why does Howe stick with Ramsdale?
He is bad. Okay, his defenders aren't the sharpest tools in the shed, but Ramsdale has conceded 58 goals this season with just 5 clean sheets.
He couldn't go far wrong putting Boruc between the sticks surely?
 
2020-07-15 1:17:40 PM  
Geez, Spurs.  Do not let Jonjo Shelvey that kind of a run!
 
2020-07-15 1:18:58 PM  
Spurs just cannot keep possession
 
2020-07-15 1:19:48 PM  
I've got it on my laptop. But I need that to work. So it's a radio broadcast.

LG was supposed to have the app for smart TVs on day 1.  

Well... that was a lie.

Kane is guarded 3 on 1 and you still pass to him?!

Peacock launches on PS on July 20.
 
2020-07-15 1:24:19 PM  
But you're right that I could log in via the shiatty Playstation web browser.  

Surprisingly not via the shiatty LG TV web browser, however.  Couldn't run something on Peacock's website.

Or even a smart phone.
You can usually cast it to the TV anyway

Peacock app not on Roku / Samsung.

That's right.  I am still using the NBC sports gold

Lucky you, it's not launching here at all. Crave TV here may carry some programs, but not live events (and I'm not paying for Crave either, so ehhh)
 
2020-07-15 1:28:02 PM  
oh what a finish from Son, from almost nothing!

And it's already been confirmed that the PL gold stuff will be on Peacock next season. So we all might as well get used to it.

Dubravka having to give his all to stop that strike from Son.

.... and the Playstation shiatty browser is outdated, too. 

Thanks for having me log in to tell me that.

Maybe my 2-year-old TV doesn't have it and LG just isn't telling me why. 

I did find 12 movies and TV shows with Peacock in the title.
 
2020-07-15 1:33:03 PM  
Moura cannot find either Son or Kane

Not sure how Ederson kept that out

NBC can go choke on its pee cock in hell.


I eventually got Peacock to load by ignoring the huge "Peacock!" banner at the top of the screen and instead going to "Channels" and scrolling down.

Pro tip: Don't go to "Sports". There is just highlights and replays. Apparently, today's games don't count as sports.

also, if it says "off air" don't believe it

I only clicked on the Tottenham match out of frustration and was glad it worked.

it's a hell of a launch.

Somehow, this match goes into the break with just a 1 goal lead, and not for Newcastle.
 
2020-07-15 1:51:48 PM  
My TV keeps spontaneously turning on closed captions. Also, the UI for Peacock sucks. I can't figure out whether to blame AndroidTV (which I don't usually use) or Peacock for the suckiness

"shiatty launches barely good enough for a Beta" seems to be the new normal with streaming services.

Mind you, Peacock has been running in "preview" for Comcast victims customers for weeks already.
