    Live Stream Buffering on Smart TV??

    When accessing AFCB ........... either live matches or videos ......... it works fine on my laptop but buffers on my Smart TV. Was good last season but not now. I am told that Smart TV browsers do not update like laptops do, and the FAQ on the club site indicates "Smart TV browsers are not...

    Non - Bands with Wonderful Names

    Now that the transfer window is closed, and we have ten days until our next League game, how about a list of bands that have names that make you sit up and notice. Strange. Suggestive. Incomprehensible. Or anything else you like. Only condition should be that a google search of the band...

    AFCB Live for Internationals

    Have any of you with insights into the Club heard anything about the streaming platform for 2021-22? My recollection from last year is that we didn't hear anything until a week or so before the first League match, so maybe something is just around the corner. DAZN Canada will be carrying West...

    Non - Newcastle

    Just trolling the PL a bit .... Came across Newcastle's remaining fixtures: Spurs Burnley (A) West Ham Liverpool (A) Arsenal Leicester (A) Man City Then finish off with Sheffield at home and Fulham away which could be for all the marbles. Could they go down and take the Wee Man and Callum...

    Three Dumb Questions

    Without the benefit of face-to-face local discussion, questions occasionally come to mind. Probably dumb ones to most of you, but I don't mind being the foil for some scorn. So: 1) Do the referees and assistants work as a unit throughout the season? By that, I mean are the same AR's...

    Non - Lee Westwood

    Leading by 2 going into the final round of the Players Championship, the generally-accepted "5th major". C'mon Westy, give us something to cheer us up!

    Two months, 8 teams, 5 playoff spots

    We have passed the three-quarter pole of the race. It is definite that Norwich will be top-six. Twelve points separate second to eighth positions currently. Boro look like an unlikely outsider, but I have included them given that they have the softest schedule from here. Here’s what we see...

    Non - Christopher Plummer RIP

    Canadian legend died today at 91. Probably best known worldwide as Captain Von Trapp in Sound of Music, but best remembered here as for his many appearances as stage actor at Stratford in Ontario. Many Broadway and London appearance as well. Was working right into last year. Great career...

    Non - One-Year Anniversary Pandemic Review Thread.

    It has been a year since @blandford_cherry alerted us to the Pandemic, in a somewhat ironic way which reflected how we felt at the time. To mark that anniversary, I was thinking that we could each set out a short commentary or rant on how we see things today, and what we might have learned over...

    Non - A Joe Biden Thread .....

    Why not. With all the previous focus on Donald Trump, let's now see what the new guy will be up to. Note the comment from Bernie ....... Biden appeasing his progressives .. ''The Keystone pipeline is & always has been a disaster. I'm delighted that Joe Biden will cancel the Keystone permit...

    Streams and musing on fate ....

    The angst around the telecasting of matches made me think of something that I had not realized previously. My Cherries journey started just about 5 years .... Nov 2015. It was a Saturday morning, golf season was at an end. I was channel surfing and saw a listing on TSN or Sportsnet, Premier...

    afcbTV Live

    Hi guys ............ The last few months have worn me out (can't imagine how you "legends" do it season by season), and I am going to take a month or so off from the Forum to recharge for the Championship. However, I wanted to start a thread for those of us who hope to follow the team from a...

    Garbo bookends wins in Game 1 and Game 7 for the 2019-2020 (extended) season. In Game 7, Garbo made 7 consecutive picks without ever selecting a team named Manchester ...... inspired stuff. To re-cap, the season's winners are: Game 1: Garbo Game 2: chillred Game 3: leaprobe Game 4...

    AFCB Wallpaper

    A couple of months ago, just at the start of the COVID mess, my laptop froze. Hard to get a repair in these times, but finally got it back. They had to scrub most of my data, which I had backed up to the hilt, so I have re-installed it all. However, was looking for a new screen...

    Some quick observations at the half, Dortmund 2 Schalke 0. Very first thing we see on TV is Matts Hummels blowing a couple of snot balls on the pitch before the match has started! It could be my imagination but it doesn't see very physical, even for Bundesliga. Not many hard tackles, a couple...
