You get it all for free you say - so you are in fact a petty criminal - like your mates Bobby Charlton - Platini and Blatter?


You don't know how it works you say, what do you actually do to access it? Is it a URL? a program? an app?

Thanks for proving the Truth of my statement above. :lol:

I have asked you a simple question and you haven't answered! I have put it in bold to help you.

I simply use the the control my mate gave me, I turn it to 'On/Override TV', switch it to 'Menu', select 'Match Listing' and press 'Play', simple really.
My computer automatically downloads and saves the programs as they are delivered, as I said I don't know much about the machinations of it all as my mate set it all up for me.
All I need to know is that it works - makes it more plausible that way in case anything goes wrong. :wink:

He never answers once he realises he's been found out. He wiill then accuse you of doing the same. He will the run away when you ask him to provide these questions.

According to rankings, Russia are the worst team in the world cup. That wouldn't be helped by the fact they have only been playing friendlies for 2 years though.

in actuality I think Panama are the worst team in the tournament closely followed by Australia

Take the piss out of me all you like but I am getting it all free and will be able to record any matches that interest me, again thanks to my mate.

Happy World Cup 2018 everyone. :D :D :D :D
