I'm completely the wrong person to answer this cause until recently Ive used a Nokia 1100 that I bought new in the early 2000s that did what I needed it to do.

In the mid 80s I had to carry around town for work one of those bloody great big brick Dom Jolly type monsters. Even tho it was massive I did manage to lose one once. Work was chuffed.

But then when the mobiles came out proper I went thru them like bags of crisps. I'd get so pissed with having no reception I'd stomp on them or just launch them over some building,

But mt Mrs bought me the 1100 and told me don't lose it. So i never did.

But about 4 weeks ago I didn't pay my Virgin and the luvly peeps cut me off. Bastards. dont get me started on Virgin grrr. Anyway my mate was pissing himself that I didn;t know how to get online via phone. But as Ive never had the need why should I?

Anyway he gave me his phone. Galaxy S5. i was lost to start with as its just a tad different to me old one. But am up to speed now.

So my question is. Is there such a big difference between the S5 and S9 as to be such a step up money wise? Is it just a bit better camera etc? And as the only time I use it online eyc is if I'm bored on a tube or sitting in the pub would it change my world if I upgraded?

I think I'm abit like you. Only ever had bricks for phones as all I needed was to make and take calls, simples. But at work they upgaded me to a Samsung Xcover4 which is a good phone. My daughter then bought me a Samsung Galaxy J3.Good phone, good camera, can get my emails and I have my "Spotify". What more do I need ??? Really feeling old because I'm probably only driving my phones in first gear :blush:. To me it's a phone, makes calls, receives calls, takes photos....That's all I need

When I worked on the railway we had phones in the late 80's early 90's that were so big you had to carry them in a sort of briefcase. I brought it into the boozer once this woman crapped herself when it started ringing she thought it was a bomb !. I'm the same as you I WhatsApp and text more than make calls I rarely answer numbers I don't recognise and I take photos which for me is the best thing about an iPhone.

Already got plans in place if that day ever happens mate. I'm going out with a bang and smiling!

But for now I'm still wondering where our goals are coming from. With Sevilla in for Bats it leaves us with 1 French and 1 Spanish wonkey donkeys

Yea it's fucking worrying. We think about loaning a guy who could potentially be the answer to our problems. If he goes I cannot for the life of me see a 20 goal a season striker that we could buy in less than 24 hours. Crazy!!

Unless we pit Fekir there the only other I can omagine is IF we do a deal for Martial with Happy.

And that would man my dream of Happy Pogba and Varane together would be 2/3 complete! grrrrr!
