    I’m hoping this one will cover the whole flat!
    One of the reasons for the upgrade is the Bt wireless router not being able to send a signal that will penetrate the thick concrete block walls all the way to the bedroom and study.
    Hopefully now all will be good, otherwise I may have to get another AP..

    That didn’t go as well as I’d hoped after we scored early.
    Not enough momentum second half before and after Utd’s goal, not enough pressure applied, and didn’t make de gea work enough.
    Disappointed.

    Is that really an issue with a personal network? How likely would I be to someone breaking into my network? How secure would I have to make it to make this less likely?
    Also is having wireless access to my network a good thing? Would I actually use that wireless access for anything at all or would it just be an affectation?
    Probably questions I should have asked before buying the kit..

    Yeah I thought so too.
    Also interesting snapshot into how 21st century loyalties are formed for a team you’ve never seen play in person, in a country you don’t live in..

    okay @TW and @mashton I have brought all the ubiquiti things!!!

    Edge Router
    Tough Switch 5
    Wifi AC

    So my current plan is to use switch for wired connections to:

    Front room -
    Amazon Fire Stick
    NAS
    PS4
    Network Audio Streamer

    Study -
    Desktop Mac

    Which means my WiFi would be a seperate network, as if I remember correctly @Velocio mentioned that the edge router creates a different network for each ethernet connection.

    I was enamoured of having everything on one network, both wired and wireless. Feels like the future.

    Is the solution to have one of my wired connections become my wifi ac, and use the one thats swapped out wirelessly.

    Or am I needlessly overcomplicating/thinking things?

    no offence mate, but you're talking bollocks,

    Zidane, took over Real Madrid, money to burn, great players at his disposal
    Guardiola, took over Barcelona, money to burn, great players at his disposal
    Mourinho two season at smaller teams in Portugal then takes over Porto
    Capello 9 years a manager before getting the AC Milan job and winning Serie A
    Ancelotti wins intertoto in 99 with juventus, 4 years into his career, then the league with AC Milan in 2003, 9 years into his career.
    Conte wins Serie b, a year into his career, then Serie A 5 years into his career with Juventus.
    Rijkaard won La Liga 6 years into his career with Barcelona

    All of those managers went to some of the biggest teams in their native lands, and in Europe and made a name for themselves. With access to resources and talent that make most managers envious. I'm pretty sure if you dropped Pochettino into any of those situations he would have won stuff as well. Spurs aren't those clubs. Neither are Espanyol or Southampton.

    We could talk money, spending power, the accumulation of wealth at big clubs, which makes it difficult for smaller teams to win when their best players are being picked off year after year. And I'm sure @Markyboy will chime in referencing Leicester sooner or later.

    On the one hand I'm flattered you've placed Pochettino in the same bracket as those managers above, but also pissed because you've taken nothing into account about the teams those managers took over, the resources they had to hand, and the leagues they were playing in at the time.

    Anyway it was Wenger's time to go, I always enjoyed Arsenal playing at their best with him in charge, as much as any non rabid spurs fan can anyway. Especially with us finishing behind them all the time. He should have got out sooner, and I wonder if he'll head back to France for one last hurrah, or if he's done with football for good. Really do hope he doesn't become the angry old man in the stands, whose gaze the cameras always search for and applies pressure to the managers that come after him..
