Ok so can any of you techie guys out there tell me if it's possible to make a GTFC wallpaper background for my monitor, preferably of a shot of our winning goal against Solihull in the play-off Final?  Sorry if I used any words wrongly but my 77 year old brain ain't that good these days.

Reminds me of when town played Bournemouth and we got booted out of a pub because one of the lads we were with got on their pc and changed the wallpaper to a town pic.

Didn't help that he also locked the computer by changing the password

I can't seem to find an actual image of JMD scoring but if you Google there are some good pics. Maybe one of these two will do...

Right click on one of those and then go to 'Save Image As' and save it somewhere on your computer. Then on your desktop/background right click anywhere and then go to 'Personalize' and then select 'Background' in the list on the left, then under 'Choose your picture' click 'Browse' and go select the image you just saved and that should be it done. You can change the settings of the image under 'Choose a fit' too. This is all assuming you've got the same version of Windows as me, which you might not. But it's pretty much the same on all of them.

Hey man, thanks very much for the input, I'll give it a try.  As for Windows, I'm a dedicated gamer, and just bought a high end PC, and it's running Windows 11.

Now it’s not very often I hear of a 77 year old dedicated gamer…

What do you play?

Theres a few pics that are from moments after the goal went in but I cant find a single one of the moment the ball went in the net.

Probably the best one is this

The simplest of ways to make any photo into a wallpaper is to right click it, and then 'set image as Desktop background'

I play Football Manager and have owned every copy since 1993, I believe it was, when it was called Championship Manager.  Apart from that I just love MMORPG's and have played most of them from EverQuest to WoW and to New World(crap game), waiting now for Ashes of Creation.

Indeed it was! Being a touch under half your age, I’ve been playing since Championship Manager 98/99, I remember playing it for 40 hours straight through on the first day I got it, thinking it was the greatest game I’d ever seen, going to school on Monday morning after being awake for 40 hours wasn’t ideal though.

There’s some very good podcasts online with the creators Paul & Oliver Collyer.
