What happened to this board?

Post by Super Progress on Wed Sep 28, 2016 10:43 am

The decline has been obvious for quite a while but what happened? And is it possible to bring old posters back?

Perhaps Tom could send e-mails to the old users?

80% of the people here were Glenn, and he's dead.

I thought the board was doing well during world cup 2014. But then went back to grave. Man was that already over 2 years ago? Times running...

lol! But he wasn't the only one with several names.

The truth is the board went downhill when I left the first time - you'd be surprised how many posters were asking me to come back, "Puro, the board is fucking dead since you left, come back and they'll return. You are a fucking force, man".  lol! lol! lol! lol! lol!

Congrats to both of you. <Ale>

Yeah that is true but still kind of strange how it has become a ghost town almost.

Yeah as TS says, people grew up and just had less time I think. Plus people falling out of love with the game. All that plus those relatively bad, quite personal incidents, we had a few times killed a few people off.

But mostly the growing up, I'm married, TS is married, tweedle had a kid, I think S4P might've got married. I actually think parkslives might be married too. Chinny seemed to be travelling the world... Etc

Plus the Internet is a different thing now. I think forums are less interesting to join when Twitter is there basically acting as one massive forum, all you need is a hashtag.

We were the best for quite a good long while though.

I don't want as much football to get involved in discussion. Literally don't watch anymore European league football anymore. Hardly watch any Champions League games. I mostly don't care about it as much quite a lot because Arsenal are so boring and look like going no where.

The board will never be like before I don't think. Probably because people just don't like football as much.

Lovely forum this was. From the BBC 606 exodus to the 2010 WC it was great fun.

Still, will never forget obispo and the guy with the massive chin.

It was a good run.

Hey...there is no place like this on the internet. We had some characters and great posters. I still watch football. I will try to revive some threads in the European League section.
