  1. @...Dan - it's great to see him becoming more active as the years gone on. More of the same next year mate. @6666 - very good poster. His tendency to refuse to criticise his own club makes me laugh but the general quality of posting always seems to be very good. @AMG - A much better poster than what he was a couple of years ago. @ASFF - it's a shame he's not as active as he once was. @Asura - Happy to see Asura regularly post again as the years gone on. @Azeem - Good character. Funny fucker. Fits in very well. @BartraPique1932 - I like him. Just needs to not be as cold when winding up others again. @Batard - great guy. Needs to get back in to Wrestling. Berserker - a forum legend. I'll never forget the time he laid in to Toony in a mafia wars chat about how inconsistent his game was. @Blue - he's fine when he's focused on something he likes. Just needs to block Jose and Marc. @Bluebird Hewitt - Must have known him for well over ten years now. It's a shame he doesn't have the free time he once had. I don't know how anybody could say a bad word about him. @Bluewolf- very good poster which is shown by how often he's voted top three by staff. @BounceAroundTheGround - Hopefully as time goes on he will be more active elsewhere as he's a very good poster. @bozziovai - Haven't seen Bozz around as much as he was in the summer. Which is a shame as he fit in well. @Burning Gold - I hope he begins to post more again. I had s lot of fun with him the one Tim I got past round 2 in mafia wars last year. @CaaC - John - A good addition. We need to work on his copying and pasting skills though so the font isn't size 1000. @Cannabis - Him and Stan just need to fuck each other and get it over with. @Chaaay AFC - I've noticed him a lot more as the years gone on. It's more difficult to break out when a lot of others support the same time but he's done a good job of it. @Chadwell - Seems like a good addition to the German section. Hopefully he becomes more active next year. @carefreeluke- one of a number of very good Chelsea posters that make this place click. @Cicero- very good member. Possibly the front runner for MOTY. His rep speaks volumes really. @Cure- such a shame he's not around more. @Dalmore - fair play to him because supporting a team in a league that's not represented well must be shit and his input is appreciated. @Dan - in terms of consistent quality posting he's up there with everybody on this forum. I'm sure he's already recognised I think that just by how much rep I give him over the course of the year. @Danny - he provides a good (and much needed) balance to this forum. @DeadLinesman - made the greatest call in tf365 history by putting me forward for staff and I'll always be grateful. @Devil-Dick Willie - funny fucker who thankfully stops me from talking to a brick wall in the wrestling thread. @Dickie - some of his YouTube stuff is class. @Djalminha - I see him online quite a bit. Hopefully he will begin to post more soon. @DNA - Hopefully he will post more again as time goes on. @Dr. Gonzo - in terms of posting quality he's been an absolutely relentless animal this year. @Eco - God how this place benefited with his energy when he was around. @El Profesor - The stand out poster during the World Cup and really helped make the forum be a very enjoyable place to read and engage with. @Fairy In Boots- definitely a character. Some of his comments in the Championship section are pretty funny. @Faithcore - the only person who can get away with talking in third person. @Fusion - I miss the guy but in sure he will one day return. @Gunnersauraus - I like his enthusiasm around the place. @Happy Blue - first round of next mafia wars he's dead. @Harry - good poster. Definitely quality over quantity. Seems like a really nice guy too. @Harvsky - honestly if you guys saw what he said about some of you in the staff room. Even I feel awkward. @HK85 - I've never understood why somebody would log in to a forum to just rep anything negative but each to their own. @Hugh Jass - He'll be back. @IgnisExcubitor - I haven't noticed Ignis as much as previous years which is a shame as I've always enjoyed their posts. @Inverted - Very good member. Always posts to a high standard which makes him a real asset to this place. @José - I think we owe him one for how much content gets created in The Champions League section as about 60%+ of it is people responding to him. @JOSHBRFC - glad to see him and the Rovers contingent getting more involved as the years progressed. @Kowabunga - been impressed with the standard of posting when i have seen him in the La Liga section. @Large - Hopefully he returns at some point. Legend. @LFCMadLad - the quality of posting has got better as the years gone on. @LFCMike - funny bloke. Has Cannabis wrapped round his finger. @Lucas - very happy to see him win member of the year as over seven years it was deserved. @Machado - good member whose contributions in various places is appreciated. @Marc - when talking about football he is one of the best members out there. When he's making out this place to be worse than Auschwitz not so much. @Mazzari - one of the members I miss the most actually. His contributions were underrated. @Mel81x - one of the nicest and most humble posters we have ever had. @nudge - already worth her wait in gold to the staff team. @Panflute - would like to see him post more again. @Panna King - another one whose quality of posting has got better as the years progressed. @Paulh_85 - hewitt needs to get him back as he was literally an upgrade of him. @Paulo Dybala - seemed like a good poster but I never understood the various accounts. @Pep Talk - he could be a real asset to this place. Fingers crossed he posts more next year. @Perseus - I've been very impressed with all the posts and is another that will hopefully stick round. It's just a shame they support Brighton. @R-D - I miss his contributions in the FM section. @Rab - shithead. @Rafa Beneathus - funny bloke. I'm sure he will come back. @RandoEFC - The total package in terms of enthusiasm, professionalism, posting quality etc. @Relling - I like what I've seen in the German section. @Rick - I always get the impression he's one of those people that could get glassed one weekend, be really pissed off about it all the week, and then the following Friday resolve it with a pint as an apology. I think I respect him for it. @roversgirl - Really happy to see her posting again as she was one of the reasons I kept coming back in the first place. @Rucksackfranzose - I'm happy to see him getting nominated by people for MOTY as his contributions shouldn't go unnoticed. @Salford Kel - had absolutely no issues with any of her posts this year and long may it continue. @SchalkeUK - legend. @ScoRoss - I thought we were going to lose him as the year went on the to the lack of SPL posts but I'm glad we haven't because he's a very good asset. @shut up - always been a good poster. Hopefully they'll be more active over the next twelve months. @SirBalon- His passionate posts will always make him one of thebmost likeable people here. He runs the La Liga ship smoothly too. @Smiley Culture- Has really come to life during the international periods. His persona is great at times too. @Spike - very good member. I enjoy his responses to people trying to get under his skin more than I should really. @Stan - I still think he's absolutely mad for typing out all the fixtures. This place would really struggle without him. @StefBWFC - Happy to see Stef posting regularly again throughout the course of the year. Funny, intelligent members is what the EFL section thrives on. @Storts - The fact he runs another forum yet still donates and regularly contributes here with high quality posts really says a lot about him as a person. @Takyon - Hopefully we will see a return in 2019 due to previous impact. @The Artful Dodger - Another one whose character helps this place tick over and the general qualofybof his posts are of a high standard. I hope he doesn't feel undervalued. @The Käiser - from what I've seen in the German section has been good. @The Liquidator - I like him and i think his contributions have often been undervalued. I don't understand why he only posts in one thread from now on though. @The Rebel CRS- A very good poster. Always has been. Always will be. I imagine the plastic will start posting more in the EFL section when Blackburn Make a playoff push. @tlr - I was very happy to see the return earlier this year. Hopefully they'll stick around more next year. @Toinho - Funny bloke. The Blue is Lube comment will be around for years. @True Blue  - One of the many very good Chelsea fans that will keep this place ticking over for years to come. @Tommy - Like everybody else, I preferred Tsubusa. @UNORTHODOX - Another Liverpool fan who I hope to see become as active as they once were given how the side is improving. @Viva la FCB - Another member who I'm happy to see get MOTY shouts because there overall contribution is very good. @YNWA - I'm happy to see them get involved in patches over the course of the last year, and I hope to see more of them next year.

  4. @ ... Dan  Class member and underrated, great contributor overall and clearly knows his stuff. @ 6666 Very passionate about his football posts and he's a good mafia player. @AMG Has vastly improved from his TFF form and is a decent member now. @ASF Not as active as he used to be. Missed, specially when one is playing mafia wars and is a part of the mafia, this is who you want to have in the town. @Asura Another i think is vastly improved from his TFF self, at least from what i've seen. @Azeem Good addition to the forum, i find his posting style very similar to Dickie's. @ BartraPique1932Used to be a good member in the old forum, unfortunately most of his brain cells must have been damaged in the transition. @Batard J'aime Batard, même s'il me baise toujours quand je suis a citadin dans des guerres mafieuses in me donnant des informations incorrectes sur montes rôle. @Blue The forum would not be the same without him (not sure if that's a compliment) @ Bluebird Hewitt We all miss RedDragon Hewitt, a legend indeed. @Bluewolf Very good all-around and also a great gardner mind you! @BounceAroundTheGround Decent poster. @bozziovai We need him back, he was funny. @CaaC - John Great addition, will become best friends with @Bluewolfin no time @Cannabis A good poster Martin is, though the one who fuels my dick is none other than his girl. @Chaaay AFC I like him, very good poster although sadly we do not run into each other as much anymore. @Chadwell Good poster. @carefreeluke Great lad and poster, not what you imagine a typical Chelsea fan to be. @Cicero Bastard, always goes for me in mafia games, if not then he's mafia like last game. Also told you Morata was shit! @Cure I miss the situations he created with his sole presence. @Dalmore My greek pal, Scocco lover. @Dan  If you were to have a fat friend then you would want that to be Dan. @DannyA comedian, literally. Also an adventurer, and I'm glad as he seems to be doing much better than in the past few years. @DeadLinesman Phill is quite an iconic character and quite funny when he wants to be. Feel he was a bouncer in a past life by how welcoming he's with newcomers. You could say his fuse is shorter than his hair perhaps. @ Devil-Dick Willie Another iconic character this looney aussie bastard. Forum would not be as good / funny without him. @Dickie  I miss Richie, he's probably living la vida loca @Djalminha Was a decent member, do not see him around anymore. @DNA Not bad. @Dr. Gonzo Great contributor this fucker. @Eco Needs to come back! @ Professor  Love Ricardinho, adds something unique. @Fairy In Boots He replaced VOR very well i must say .. @Faithcore A hidden gem as far as banter goes. @Fusion Jorge you need to get your ass back here you cunt! @Gunnersauraus  Nice addition to the forum, surprised me when he came here. @Happy Blue Cows will fly before he makes a serious post. @Harry Good guy, loves his mafia. @Harvsky He's to the forum what Scholes was to United. @ HK85 Complete melt. @Hugh Jass Was a good poster. @IgnisExcubitor Good guy, like's his astrology and videogames. @Inverted Another excellent addition, has become part of the core in no time, speaks volumes of this contributions. @ Jose My hijito supports the worst teams possible, he follows Brian around like he's a bitch in heat. @JOSHBRFC  He tried to partake in the recent Mummy movie, took it a bit too far I think. @Kowabunga Likes politics a lot. @Large Another that needs to come back, very good poster. @LFCMadLad Very good poster who has a more than decent overall knowledge and is also quite funny, not bad. @LFCMike Been around for ever, clearly a good poster like most of the red lads. @Lucas Long time i do not see him, knows a lot about lower leagues. @Machado ASF2 likes his banter and his mafia, noticed he has changed quite a bit from a few years back like others. @Marc Contributes nicely to the forum's banter most of the times, but he can go overboard. Also it appears to be very well versed on lower leagues and premier footy, but can be biased towards other leagues. @Mazzari Was a fixed spot on mafia games when he was around, shame he's not active anymore. @ Mel81x Mel is a great guy and another gamer, definitely who i'd call if i had a problem with my PC or connection. @nudge  Multi-facetic, excellent all around and i find we have very similar opinions on a lot of subjects. SE Asia would also be my place in the world if it was not because I do not like SE Asian women. @Panflute Jesse contributed a lot to the forum, suppose he's versed in to his magazine entrepreneurship? @Panna King Leader of the finger in the ass movement @Pep Talk Happy's good twin @RD Was a good poster @Rab Your average grumpy Scotsman @Rafa Beneathus This overweight windowlicking mong needs to come back, you can easily notice he's not around as much anymore and not only because of his figure @RandoEFC Did a great job this year with all the quizzes, solid contributor all-around @Relling Like most of Ze Germans on here he's a good poster. @Rick Enjoy reading about his love stories on the Dating Thread from time to time and he's also quite a funny member when he feels like it @Rucksackfranzose Another good German poster, and he also plays mafia regularly! @Salford Kel Not the rampant force he was before, she used to make good posts about football @SchalkeUK Very knowledgable, shame he only posts on the Bundesliga section @ScoRoss Another hidden gem, a great contributor all around and clearly know his footy @shut up Not a bad poster but tends to be a bit biased @SirBalon This guy writes like there was no tomorrow, and that's what makes him a solid contributor all around. Keen on taking him on a chopper ride @Smiley Culture Good poster although he mainly stays in the prem and lower league sections except when he's trying to make Brian fake another death @Spike Funny guy and a good poster, i like that he drinks mate (beverage) @Stan A pillar of the bantz on here and essential to the forum the curry-dripping cunt @StefBWFC Very good poster, shame that Bolton are probably never going to play in the prem in his lifetime again. @Storts Nick is a great guy and well versed in everything, pity how we fucked up in mafia @Takyon Yet another good member who is sadly not active anymore @The Artful Dodger Very knowledgable and bias-free, which is not something to be taken for granted @The Liquidator Sometimes he can be a good poster but many times he tries to troll and fails at it @The Rebel CRS My nigga, i love Chris, shame we don't chat as much as we used to @The Palace Fan Aaron is for sure one of my favourite posters on here, very sound, more than well-versed and also a funny guy, would love to have a few beers with him and i'm sure we will eventually @tlr Not as active as on the other forum, was a very good poster specially on the lower leagues. @Toinho A natural comedian the gaijin, would love to have a few pints with him @True Blue This loveable Serbian slag looks to have settled in and things are looking better for him, which i'm glad for @Tommy Tommyboy needs to spend less time watching F1 and more time practising to be a useful townie! @UNORTHODOX Good poster like most of the reds @Viva la FCB Good member all around and a regular in the mafia games

  8. Right, if you've been missed off the list it is either because @Blue didn't put you on the original one, you haven't posted recently or you changed your username and I can't find you Some of you might remember but for a couple of years in a row on TFF I did a themed member opinions post. This year I am going for a roughly 1980s music theme, roughly because it might be out by a few years. Each song is what I think the world is like through your eyes. If you don't know any 80's music then I have absolutely no idea why I share my time with you. @Anton - Easy Lover by Phil Collins @Stan - Call Me by Blondie @Cannabis - Girlfriend In A Coma by The Smiths @Teso dos Bichos - Body Language by Queen @Dan - Don't Dream It's Over by Crowded House @SirBalon - Glory Days by Bruce Springsteen @The Artful Dodger - God Save The Queen by The Sex Pistols @JOSHBRFC - Summer Of 69 by Bryan Adams @Berserker - Relax by Frankie Goes To Hollywood @Rab - Mr Roboto by Queen @The Palace Fan - London Calling by The Clash @HK85 - The Living Daylights by A-Ha @Smiley Culture - Panic by The Smiths @LFCMadLad - Fat Bottomed Girls by Queen @Cicero - Rock Me Amadeus by Falco @LFCMike - Fight For Your Right by Beastie Boys @The Rebel CRS - Town Called Malice by The Jam @Storts - West End Girls by The Pet Shop Boys @Tsubasa - Footloose by Kenny Loggins @Machado - In The Air Tonight by Phil Collins @Batard - She Drives Me Crazy by Fine Young Cannibals @Chaaay AFC - Tainted Love by Soft Cell @Lucas - Alive And Kicking by Simple Minds @Dr. Gonzo - Enola Gay by The Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark @Dickie - Karma Chameleon by Culture Club @Asura - Girls On Film by Duran Duran @ASF - Atlantic City by Bruce Springsteen @shut up - Agadoo by Black Lace @Inverted - The End Of The World by R.E.M. @Toony - Don't Stop Believing by Journey @El_Loco - Love In An Elevator by Aerosmith @VanPaddy - I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston @Danny - Where The Streets Have No Name by U2 @6666 - Happy Hour by The Housemartins @Viva la FCB - Say Say Say by Paul McCartney And Michael Jackson @Harry - Dancing On The Ceiling by Lionel Ritchie @Happy Blue - Eye Of The Tiger by Survivor @True Blue - Careless Whisper by George Michael @Blue - Take On Me by A-Ha @Bluebird Hewitt - Holding Back The Years by Simply Red @Any O'Brien - Special Brew by Bad Manners @nudge - Africa by Toto @DeadLinesman - Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns N' Roses @FOYM - Girls Just Want To Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper @ScoRoss - Vienna by Ultravox @Tanksie - Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr @Fairy In Boots - Freedom by George Michael @Kowabunga - Papa Don't Preach by Madonna @Panflute - Rasputin by Boney M @Dalmore - Red Red Wine by UB40 @Spike - Pour Some Sugar On Me by Def Leppard @carefreeluke - Close To Me by The Cure @BartraPique1932 - Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley @...Dan - We Built This City by Starship

  9. Ok, here we go again, two years on... @DeadLinesman realising that 'three' is not a magic number, two was definitely enough and it was time to get the snip... @CaaC (John) had this uncanny knack of falling asleep standing up... @Batard doing Batard, the only way he knows how... @Stan knew that without breaking any traditions, he could still look fly for his wedding... @Bluewolf and the trouble with getting old... @Inti Brian, doing the first draft of his 2020 Members Opinion post, poised and ready to drop bombs on it.. @LFCMadLad "I'm tellin' ya lad, it's our fuckin' year mate..." to "Fuck VAR, the games gone to the dogs..." @Carnivore Chris really, really enjoyed his 6th trip to the 'Dam... @Happy Blue after avoiding a first night lynching as Mafia... @Mel81x decided it would be cool to teach the Sheep how to play 'Sheep'... @Storts knew it was time to get back on the horse. And it began with his new profile pic on Tinder... @Rab, pissing himself as the forum donations rolled in for 2021. The suckers had fallen for it yet again... @The Artful Dodger, already in a mood with Southerners, decided that just for a change, he'd have a moan... @nudge was not impressed. This was Chivas Regal 12 year old blended Scotch, NOT the 18 year old... @Dan had been trying to get his work 'friend' to notice him for ages. It was time to give her the eyes... @Spike simply wasn't having it. But try as he mite, he still couldn't touch the end of his nose... @Dr. Gonzo was done. Lockdown had become a nightmare. It was only 11:25am and the missus wanted her fourth shag of the day... @Toinho loved his returns back to Oz. And as long as you don't touch, what's the harm in looking...right? @Devil-Dick Willie smashed it this Halloween after finding some spare ash lying around...

  10. I was talking about it a while ago in the Off Topic thread and decided to take a few pictures as I was going along... It's been a bit of a slog at times I won't lie, the coffees have been many, the delays frustrating and the heat! don't even get me started on the heat!!! I was losing so much fluid in that sun by the end of some of them days I felt like a mummified corpse... I would have preferred a straight run at it but it's been a bit on and off since I started for a number of different reasons and I won't mention anyone's name directly but it's amazing how much disruption a 3 year old midget can cause... So this is what we started with... Where the chairs are in the picture is where the old garden shed used to be. I got a skip in and ripped the whole thing down along with a rather large tree branch that had snapped and come down on the roof from next door... The grass was patchy and needed sorting out.. I have done just about everything with it over the years to get a decent bit of grass up there but it was not having it.. I have slabbed it, re-seeded it, laid new turf and none of it has lasted and it always looked crap after the winter so I needed to sort it out once and for all... During the preparation I had to remove about 9 large slabs that formed the base of the old shed and when I finished lifting them up there was a huge network of mouse caves and tunnels underneath. 7 of the 9 slabs had chambers under them with mouse runs joining them all up.. All gone now though thanks to BO the mouse murderer... you may remember seeing this rodent assassin in the Pets thread.. Anyway... Once I had got all that lot cleared away and the ground somewhat level I set about working out what I would need for the job etc and then took a quick trip to B&Q for my supplies... The new play shed was due about a week after this so it gave me plenty of time to get the bulk of the framing and decking sorted.. Once my supplies had arrived I was all set to go... I even booked a shift off to give me a good crack at it so I could make the most of the good weather.. this had nothing to do with the World Cup being on either... that was pure coincidence The shed arrived much earlier than expected thanks to a friend up in Notts where I used to work and he got me £200 knocked off the price so got a right result there.. cheers mate! First thing to be done was the framing section where the first section of decking would be going.. Once this was completed I started knocking out the decking so we could get the shed up and started.. Hows that for level... I ran slabs along the back of the decking to prevent the dirt from hitting the shed as next doors garden is slightly higher than ours and the dirt came through and caused rotting on the back of the old one so took some extra precautions this time.. Once the first section was complete we started putting together the new Play Hut so the missus would have a few things to be getting on with like painting etc while I carried on with the real hard graft, sweating, heavy lifting, cutting, sawing, drilling etc.. you know, all that proper manly stuff... Once that was up I was left with this section to finish.. All the crap kept going in there as we moved stuff around all the time so it needed clearing out and another set of framing and decking to get completed.. All the time I was trying to get this finished the missus would be stopping me and saying "come look at this" to point out a protruding knot hole in the shed or something similar... Not that they do, but if Carlsberg did women who could waste as much of my time as possible on things that are not high on my list of priorities then I would already have one... Now that was out the way I had to look at getting the grass area prepared. I had already ordered the grass so it was a matter of getting the framing and sand in place.. When I was taking up the small slabs there must have been about 3 ants nests along there, and within about 5 minutes from being uncovered they had got all the eggs underground to safety.. One purpose and super efficient, I bet none of them ever blow out sick from a days work.. These two were left squabbling over what direction to take the last egg.. 'to me,to you' never seen such disorganized rabble in all my life!! So now the last of the top level of turf had been removed and with the slabs gone I began leveling off and getting the grass framing in place.. Once they were bedded in we laid the ground sheets to prevent weeds coming through and began getting the sand in.. My son decided to help out leveling the sand and broke my new broom within about 5 minutes... He was trying to fix it back together while I was getting more sand in from the front crafty sod.. Mooms used it as a bit of a beach and was digging it up quicker than we could compact it down which was really helpful... We finished off most of the inside of the hut.. The floor was pretty naff that came with the Hut so wanted to do something with it and got lucky as a bloke down the road had been doing some flooring and was throwing out a few good lengths of it.. I gave him a knock and asked If I could take some and he told me to come back at the weekend as he would have some better stuff left over so I did and he had nearly 2 full packs of brand new heavy duty flooring so it was more than enough to lay on the bottom of the hut.. Got carpet and curtains in it now and I put in a proper staircase with Bannister instead of that rubbish ladder they supplied... Here are just a few of the things Leelah was getting up to.. Using the playhouse floor as a dance floor... Using my hammers to 'help grandad' although it's better she learns how to use them now as her dad is a useless pleb and she may need those skills later on in life if she ever needs a bit of DIY done around the place... Getting umpteen screws, drills, bolts and all manner of stuff out on a regular basis..Every time I turned around my pencil was gone or my drill had been taken.. Time and again being held up so she could mess about... Like when I got a free deflated World Cup football from Screwfix while picking something up I told her it was a budget safety hat and she was wearing it around the garden.. Mooms could sniff out a ball deflated or otherwise a mile off and was in hot pursuit the whole time.. The missus was not over keen at playing 'hats' much to Leelahs amusement... and mine for that matter Helping out with the painting... Everyone pitched in at some point or another to do bits where they could and it was a decent use of some holiday time... Leelah obviously was oblivious to what was going on around her flouting the health & safety regulations, ignoring the risk assessments I had carried out and refusing to wear her 'Grandads little helper' High Viss while on the job... In fact just using the whole experience and goings on as her personal playground... Couldn't tell you how many times she had my tools and drill bits out, getting in my way, making a mess with the toys and throwing dirt and sand on my head while I was working... she just doesn't give a toss!!! going to be rule breaker that one... Well now it all looks like this... Job Done!!!

  11. Funny how it works. The above post was written on March 9th (9/3), today is September 3rd (3/9) and things have changed more than I could have ever imagined. Soon after this post was written with 100% certainty on my end, COVID hit Atlanta hard and we as a city had the Shelter in Place order. Wife and I decided to live in the same house and see this out so that neither of us had to worry about outside containment during all the craziness that was the beginning of this pandemic. I'm not sure the exact time line, but maybe a week (or two?) after this, my wife and worked on setting up the house for our daughter, which included buying a pool, buying a playground, setting up a tent, and even buying an inflatable bounce castle to keep her entertained while we were here. Slowly, while we were working on these mutual goals, we began talking more and more about the more 'serious' topics, and somehow our communication was much more open, honest, less judged then in the past, which allowed us to broach some serious topics we might have hidden otherwise. We continued to sleep in different rooms, but slowly our communication improved. Then, my father got diagnosed with COVID, and my world certainly shifted. My Dad isn't in the best of health, and so I was certainly worried as I somewhat idolize my father. My wife, Leighton, helped me by just listening as I spoke to her about my concerns and fears with my father, and all she did was listen and be there for me. It's worth mentioning that my wife lost her mother to alcoholism and drugs the year before we met, and while they weren't close, she does have experience with losing a parent. One night, I was feeling really down about being locked in my house while my Dad was sick, and in her attempt to change the mood, my wife arranged a nice steak dinner outside after our child had gone to bed. She set up a temporary table we had stored in the garage, put some some classical favorites of mine in the background, and even lit up some candles so that we weren't in complete darkness. It was wonderful and without making this into a film you might see on some NSFW websites, we ended up having sex, which was the first time we had in months, and first time doing it with any sign of passion in possibly years. That night I slept in my bed again, and haven't left. We have continued to talk about all things, and worked together our underlying issues, and created a safe space for each of us to be open with our dreams, crazy ideas (I have a few), and things we want to accomplish, all with the understanding that the other person will listen and be supportive. Game Changer. So now, here we are and it's been maybe 3 or so months since this all took place. It's weird to read about my old stories, because it seems like so many moons ago. Have we had arguments? Absolutely! However, even those are different than they were before, they feel like they are done with better intentions than previous arguments, and we've had significantly better results. Wife has started a graduate program, understood and accepted our religious differences, and has been very supported with my goal of finding a new job and the idea of potentially moving over to Europe for a few years and getting our daughter (and us) a new experience. My wife has been having some medical issues going on, nothing life threatening, but certainly concerning, and I like to think I've been here supporting her 100% and that she knows, and is grateful for this new life we have together. NPR (National Public Radio) here in Atlanta, is wanting couples who relationships ended (or improved) during COVID, to just sit down and record themselves talking about where they were, where they are, and how this pandemic assisted in that process, and my Father swears that my wife and I should do this, and we very well may. I think it'd be a great experience for us to relive and remind ourselves how lucky we are for right now, because only months ago our worlds looked a look bleaker. My father completely recovered, and everyone in my family has been nothing but healthy since. With all the craziness of 2020, it seems like I could argue that my life is better now than ever.

  12. I'm 37 years old and I've been watching football for what must be 30 years. I probably started watching more seriously in my young teens. It's a long time to follow/support something without your opinions changing as you grow up. I've noticed myself becoming increasingly irritated when watching a match, and frustrated (it's worse than frustrated but I'm trying to be polite) with players and all the rubbish that comes with them. So I'm now asking myself, 'why do I keep watching?'. And who is the game we call football now aimed at? I'm a Celtic fan but live in England and was lucky enough to have SKY Sports when football first took off there. It was a huge commercial investment and it was probably the start of what we see as football today. But it was great wasn't it. The excitement of Monday night football. Tough football, played well with a smattering of foreign stars adding some panashe. The blend was class, the games were exciting. And now what do we have? We have players and managers who have a win at all costs mentality which means they can justify what they do (or try to do) to a club owner. Is there ever a game that you watch where there's not an incident that makes you mad. Players diving or conning the ref and then watching on to see what's happening while grinning? Big defenders giving it out and the diving when barely touched. Where's the sportsmanship? Dees it not matter? The press on diving has really dropped off. It's almost seen as acceptable. I've been watching PSG over the last few years since their takeover. To me PSG are simply a FIFA team for kids. Youngsters potentially follow players more than they do a team because of the things I mentioned earlier, money, shoes, their celeb friends, Twitter blah blah blah). They're a team full of what ex pros what call 'personalities' with great experience. But they're not very likable are they, Neymar, Di Maria, Cavani, Dani Alves. They're all South Americans and maybe this is where the difference is (I'd like to hear a genuine opinion from a South American on this) but what is your want in a player? What skills and character appeals to you? I'm Scottish so skills come second, but I just want some honesty. If you're honest and you have skills, then that's your hero. Ronaldo (the original), Zidane, Shearer, Raul. Without it, who cares. In the past people would have said, they're poor so they've grown up scrapping for it so the winning is all that matters because they'll support their family if they make it as a footballer. Is that still true? They are a bunch of players who are trying to re-invent the game to suit their own personal gains. And they seem to have the power to do it because so many decisions go in their favour. And you don't hear too many pundits go against them either. Why? Because they want to stay in the game and get paid for as long as possible. Genuine opinions come second to getting paid. I understand that sport changes and commercially I'm sure that football is better now than it ever has been. The players get paid more, the managers get paid well (but can have little influence over players). Large companies make a mint from rights and milking players for everything they've got. What seems to be the case now, maybe with higher class competitions is that winning means everything, and to me that doesn't make it a sport. You started watching football because it was fun and fair. Playing hard but fair and only occasionally crossing those boundaries. Now we have people suggesting that we must 'protect our prized assets'. Why? Football is a collective and if you suggest that players of a higher reputation (based on wage, likes, Instagram/Twitter followers, style) and all that consumer nonsense have more power or influence over others, then it's not a sport . I'd honestly love to hear from people who do still enjoy football and why? Conversely, are you the same as me, you hate it but can't stop watching? A 30 year addiction!

  13. Cheers lads, I really appreciate it. As you can probably imagine, the last 16 to 18 hours has been mental. It wasn't meant to happen that soon but fuck it. Not gonna lie, I've not drunk since June but I was out last night with mates and I have an absolute stinking hangover this morning. Was it worth it? Without a doubt. I'm not sure anyone will ever quite understand what it means because for a big club with such expectancy, it's actually been constant pressure on us to do it and we have always failed. 16 Years. 16 fucking long years since the Premier League, and in that time we've had... 0 Trophies 1 Stadium Sale 1 Administration 3 Embarassing defeats to Non League in FA Cup 4 Playoff Failures 5 Crazy Owners 16 Managers 25 Points Deducted 100m+ Debts Settled 143 League One Games 601 Championship Games Tuesday nights at Hereford, Port Vale and Tranmere Seeing all your best youngsters flogged and still have no bucket to piss in Constant abuse and laughter at our failures and humiliations. "Leeds...Leeds are falling apart, again" The butt of all jokes. Loads of anger, frustration and tears. It feels like we've seen it all. Spygate, letting teams score, protests, the fans blocking a car park so Massimo Cellino couldn't leave, court cases involving the club, documentaries, I could go on. I could fill a fucking page of bad memories that I never want to revisit but in a strange and twisted way, it has made us stronger. And this feeling, right now, makes it all worth it. This is why you stick with your club through thick and thin for these moments. Don't get me wrong, they have pushed me to the absolute edge and I wasn't sure I'd ever see it happen. But finally it has and it means the world. The support has been phenomenal and we pack out the grounds home and away. Those that have watched us away at Rochdale losing thoroughly deserve this moment. This isn't just your normal yo yo club getting promoted or some team getting lucky for their 5 minutes of fame up in the Premier League, this feels so much more different because it's Leeds and the size of the club and I have been overwhelmed by the texts, calls and words on social media and here from people who appreciate what a slog it has been. Bielsa will forever be a god at the club now, he has broken the curse and done it without splashing cash and simply improving the players we had. What an absolute icon the man is. Just not enough words to describe him. It's a shame we couldn't do it in front of the fans but I will happily take this moment and you can bet your bottom dollar when people are allowed back to watch, the atmosphere will be fucking special. Especially when Man Utd come to town... Cheers all x

  19. @Toinho@Harry@Spike Congratulations on bowing out of the world cup without a single win (again), and honestly, they shouldn't have a single point or even goal to their name. A retarded French defender and a dodgy ref gifting you 2 goals from the spot when otherwise it looked like AUS could have played FOREVER without finding the net. For all that Moy and Rogic passed it round nicely they created diddly fuck, leckie has the speed of a ferrari but the touch of a pedo, Kruse looks like he was an extra in Dallas buyers club and no one looked like they knew how the fuck to score in a russian brothel much less on the pitch. Credit to BVM. Australia looked MILES better under Bert than under that fat grumpy Greek cunt. But passing it around then getting cleared by defenders doesn't win games. I loved Van Marwijks comment post match. "they did exactly as I asked. They just can't score" Have fun scrapping into the next world cup. I'll be there with a can of pepsi and my cynic hat on.

  23. So, it's about time for an update boys and girls. The wife and I have officially decided on divorce. I proposed what I planned for the financials (I make significantly more than her so I'll have to pay alimony), and then she came back with another proposal which I accepted. We had a serious talk last night, and we both agreed that we didn't want to fuck over the other, but wanted to find a solution that made everyone feel okay, and that's what I think we did. Tonight we told our daughter that 'Daddy will be living elsewhere', but that we are still a family and that both Mom and Dad both love her just as much as ever. I'll tell you now, that was one of the hardest things to do in my life. She's only 2.5 years old so all she wanted to do was watch 'Elisa' (Frozen), but still, it's incredibly painful to tell your daughter that you are leaving. I'll give my soon-to-be ex-wife props, she has done well since we decided that divorce is the next step, she is definitely getting in the family time while it's there, and keeping her emotions in check when we are in front of the daughter. I'll be living here for probably another 2 weeks, as we prepare the house to sell, and then I'm going to move in with my Dad while the house sells. Once it sells, the wife and I will split the profits, and she'll move into either a town home or an apartment I imagine, whereas I'll likely stay with my Dad for 2-3 months as I get my head wrapped around the fact that I'm 34 and divorced. A lot of mixed emotions from me honestly. I hate that I'm leaving my previous daughter, but I know deep down that this is best for the future. My Dad said that I should spend some of the profits from the house to travel for a week, so I might be heading to Europe depending on how this virus goes, I would that I would get a cheap flight, but who knows. 8 years with someone is a long time, and part of me feels like it's a miracle we made it this far, while another part of me hates that I'm just another 'failed marriage'. I have been with this woman for almost a decade, we have escaped death, raised a daughter, and have had both great and terrible times...to say that this was bittersweet would justify what exactly I'm feeling during this moment. Regardless, this is just the end of a section of my self novel, and now it's time to focus on the ending of it while also preparing for the next chapter.

  24. It may not seem like this member only joined halfway through 2019 but having said that, perhaps he goes under the radar sometimes with his unassuming style of posting. But all of his posts come with sensibility and good knowledge of football. Likes to get involved in conversations regarding European football mainly and other games/competitions elsewhere and has definitely been a good contributor to the forum. He's never been on the podium before but has come close in previous months. Nevertheless, it's a great way to break your duck to come first on the first go! Well done to @Michael for winning February's Member of the Month award As it's his maiden victory, we managed to get a close up reaction once we told him the news... Overall there were plenty of candidates in the running to win it (9 in total). Coming 2nd and 3rd were @Mel81x & @Lucas respectively.

  25. He’s got thicker skin than that. 2007, I raged at anyone and everyone. You get older, you realise 99.9% of people you come across on the internet matter not a jot in the grand scheme of things. I’ve currently got a wife with a heart condition, 2 kids that drive me nuts and a mother who this year alone has broken her hip, arm, severed her brachial artery and is currently undergoing radiotherapy at Clatterbridge for secondary mets in her spine, meaning she can’t walk. The forum keeps me sane (at times), but nobody has a clue what anyone from a relative noob to the most experienced member of staff is going through. Maybe if we all took a second of our time to think about what the other person might be going through, the world would be a better place.

  26. Last Man Standing - World Cup Review At the end of a great competition like the 2018 World Cup Last Man Standing competition at Talk Football 365, it is always appropriate to spend some time looking back at the key moments that got us out of our seats over the last month. This isn't the BBC or Sky Sports, so there will be no montage with 'Elbow - One Day Like This' playing in the background. However, this will serve as a review of the World Cup in Russia, as well as a reminder of how things panned out in our little competition, and where we lack in music and slow-motion celebrations, we will more than make up for in a last flurry of GIFs and irritating notifications as I tag people who were knocked out of the competition three weeks ago. Round One The Last Man Standing World Cup Opening Ceremony - it's the 14th of June and the 23-man squads of 31 other footballing nations have traveled to Russia from all five continents to take part in the World Cup. At the same time, thirty-five men and women from England, Scotland, America, Australia, Germany, Portugal, Brazil, Holland, India, Spain, Mexico, Ukraine, Canada and even Lithuania, hoping to claim the prestigious Last Man Standing crown made their first picks from a first round of sixteen matches between some of the world's most talented footballing nations. With thirty-two teams to choose from, just picking one winner was surely a formality to get things rolling. Probably. Twelve different teams were chosen at this first hurdle, with mixed success. @Batard became the first casualty of the competition on Day Two, having to settle for the consolation prize of his country winning the World Cup after Morocco came out on the wrong end of a dour 1-0 loss to Iran. World Cup hosts Russia may have made a dream start, upsetting the higher-ranked Saudi Arabia 5-0 on Opening Day and carrying five Standers into the Second Round, but Last Man Standing host @RandoEFC, along with @tlr and @SirBalon were let down by Messi and Argentina as Leo's missed penalty saw them draw 1-1 with Iceland. Germany's shock 1-0 loss to Mexico in their opening game set the tone for a woeful defence of their 2014 crown and sent @The Palace Fan packing too, before Group H claimed a host of casualties - Colombia's loss to Japan catching out @StefBWFC, @Inverted and @Panna King and Senegal dancing on the graves of @Harvsky and @Eco after seeing off Poland. Elsewhere, Belgium, Russia and Croatia were all popular and successful picks in the first round of games, with Serbia, England, France, Sweden and Uruguay also to thank for carrying contenders into the next round. Survivors: 25 Round Two After the drama of the first round of group games - Russia on fire, Germany stunned, Spain and Portugal's six-goal thriller, the second round of matches saw something of a lull in Russia, and in the Last Man Standing contest. With a whopping 17 of the 25 remaining contenders backing Uruguay, who were one of many sides to settle for 1-0 wins in this round of fixtures, and the other 8 successfully backing either England, Portugal or Brazil, there was no blood spilt at this stage on TF365. On the pitch, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Peru and Costa Rica were amongst the first teams to start packing their bags for a flight home after notching up back to back defeats. Survivors: 25 Round Three The uneventful Round Two proved to be the calm before the storm, with over half of the remaining contenders falling at the third stage of the competition. Germany. After coming from behind to beat Sweden and stay alive at Russia 2018 courtesy of Kroos' 95th minute stunner, the Joachim Low's men had the world muttering "bloody typical Germans, they'll win the whole thing now". Well they had us fooled, and they had @Dan, @Tommy, @El Profesor, @Machado, @Asura and @Lucas fooled most of all, half a dozen people bidding "Auf Wiedesehen" to our little party. Round Three wasn't finished there though and had indeed starting claiming victims the day before when @Bluewolf's Spain and @DeadLinesman's Portugal were only able to draw with Morocco and Iran respectively. The results were enough to send the European sides into the knockouts, and two of TF365's elder statesmen back to the old care home. Mexico's hammering at the hands of Sweden saw to @Stan while Japan were content to lose to Poland in the knowledge that they'd still weirdly qualify for the Last 16 by having less yellow cards than Senegal, marking the end of honorary Russian @bozziovai's campaign in rather unlucky fashion. Yet another team that qualified for the knockout rounds despite letting down the people who backed them this time around were Switzerland, who shipped a last minute equaliser to Costa Rica through some combination of VAR and a penalty save that came back off the post, cruelly finishing off @BounceAroundTheGround, @shut up, @nudge and @Mel81x. It is the Last Man Standing after all . Survivors: 11 Round Four Thirty-two became sixteen, the goalposts got narrower and another giant packed their bags early in the first knockout round of Russia 2018. In probably the biggest WTF moment of the competition, @Devon Von Devon backed Russia to beat Spain in an effort to get eliminated from the competition and concentrate on the Prediction League. As it happened, the hosts actually managed to defeat Hierro's men on penalties, and sent @Teso dos Bichos, @Rucksackfranzose, @Marc and @Berserker out of the competition. Outside of the Spain-Russia tie, @...Dan looked momentarily as if he was set to go head to head with @Devon Von Devon in the remaining stages, but the five remaining survivors who backed Belgium saw their chances survive by an impossibly close margin when Nacer Chadli sent Japan home with the last kick of their thrilling Last 16 tie. Eventual champion @Viva la FCB will look back at this moment as the turning point in his championship-winning campaign. This is where we really separated the men from the boys as four of the remaining seven players after this round managed successful picks all the way through to the last round. Survivors: 7 Round Five World Cup quarter final weekend was a doozy, and I'm sure I'm not alone in recalling last Friday and Saturday night in a haze of lager and celebration. Russia's carnival finally came to an end as Croatia, backed by @Cannabis and @Toinho knocked the hosts out on penalties. England cruised past Sweden into the semi-finals, carrying @Devon Von Devon, @...Dan, @The Artful Dodger and @Viva la FCB along with them, while new tournament favourites France weren't backed by anyone in their 2-0 win over Uruguay, as the surviving elite began holding their big hitters back for the later stages. There was one casualty though, as @LFCMike saw Brazil huff and puff but ultimately fail to overturn a 2-0 first half deficit to Kevin De Bruyne and Belgium. Survivors: 6 Round Six Let's not kid ourselves, when the quality of competition is this high, things tend to be decided by luck, and Rounds Six and Seven were certainly a case of that in the Last Man Standing competition. Despite a flawless strategy up to this stage, @Cannabis and @Toinho were booted out in the Semi-Finals through a lack of options and no real fault of their own. @Cannabis was forced to pick losing semi-finalists England, having already used Belgium, France and Croatia in previous rounds, while @Toinho had a choice between France and England and went with the latter. Even if he had backed France at this stage, poor Anton would have been forced to back England in the Third Place Playoff in Round Seven anyway, and the bloody Poms would have seen to him one way or another. @...Dan and @The Artful Dodger had to sweat here, both also down to one option, but a successful one as France carried them past Belgium. @Devon Von Devon had a choice between Les Bleus and The Red Devils in the first semi-final, and got it spot on, backing Deschamps and his troops to carry him into the final round. Survivors: 4 Round Seven - The Finale Having had no choice but to pick France in the last round, the boot was now on the other foot for @...Dan and @The Artful Dodger, who both had a free pick for the last two fixtures of the tournament and successfully called France to be crowned world champions, along with @Viva la FCB who didn't have a choice in the matter. @Devon Von Devon's forced pick of Belgium also came through for him, sending all four finalists into a tie breaker. First, we had to see whether it would be Griezmann, Mbappe or Giroud to open the scoring, in fact it was none of them. When Mario Mandzukic inadvertently glanced an 18th minute header into his own net to open the scoring, @Viva la FCB moved into pole position, having predicted the earliest first goal (28 minutes) of anyone. The only way to stop @Viva la FCB from here was for Croatia to turn the tie around and win the competition for @Devon Von Devon but it wasn't to be. One last time, congratulations to @Viva la FCB and thanks to all for taking part. For more Last Man Standing action, keep an eye out for the domestic rendition (link below). I promise I won't tag anyone in any Last Man Standing related topics for at least a few hours after this one!

  29. That's right, I'm actually doing this. From the start of next season, my home, the Isle of Man will enter a club side into the English football pyramid. This is quite exciting for me as someone who has never had a "local team". Of course, as an Everton fan of many years, I'm not just going to fall out of club with "my" team and hop onto this new bandwagon, but I will become at the very least a casual follower of FC Isle of Man. The island has always had their "international" team made up of the best squad of local Sunday League players, who return to their club sides during the regular season. This is separate to that, and while the club's initial playing staff will be made up of pretty much the same players who will transfer properly to FC Isle of Man, in the long term they could sign players from anywhere in the world like any other club. The club will start next season in the 10th tier of the English football pyramid, joining the "phoenix" club Bury AFC in the First Division North section of the North West Counties Football League. This thread may become, at best, a poorly-maintained chronicle of their progress through the divisions that is only really interesting to me, or I might never post in it again, but I would like to keep it updated as a case study in what it's like for a brand new football club to enter the pyramid. I personally think they'll be pretty competitive during their first few seasons with the best players from a population of 80,000 to pick from. If nothing else, it's a good idea for a Football Manager save next time I get an updated version of the game.

  30. What a month. A very busy one at that. It's been just over 4 years since TFF was resurrected in to its current form of TF365. Four years of conversation, controversy, jokes, meltdowns, debates, polls, arguments... And that was just about VAR. Anyway, as a result of managing all of that across the forum, the staff - as the elite folk we are - have decided to choose ourselves as the collective 'Member of the Month'. We feel like we deserve it because we have to keep all of you in check 24/7 and some of you take a lot more work than others. Well done to myself, @nudge, @Tommy, @Rab, @SkyBruce Championship, @Dr. Gonzo, @Harry, @The Palace Fan, @Batard & @DeadLinesman. This was us in the end-of-year staff party: Just kidding. April Fool's and all that jazz. @Devil-Dick Willie won by quite some margin for March . Well done mate. Keep up the good work. Only the 2nd time coming first (this award, not your private life...)! Thanks for the celebration video. We can tell you've gone all out for that one... In 2nd was @Devil - again, keep up the good work! It's not easy joining a forum of several established members and you've fitted in nicely In 3rd was @Whiskey - I think there's a glitch in the matrix on this one so this placing will be reviewed.

  31. Doing things a bit differently this time around. I probably should have said a while ago but it’s taken quite a while to come to terms with this year but my girlfriends Dad is dying. He had all the symptoms for Corona in April sort of time and 111 said it sounded like Corona and that he’d probably recover in a couple of weeks but a few cases have lasted longer. It went on and on and then he seemed to take a turn for the worse and just wasn’t shaking it off. He eventually got scanned, which was a battle in itself given his temperature at the time but it was cancer and it was terminal. It was a blow to all of us. He turned 50 in July so it all just seems to have happened at once. Basically, Chemo made it worse and they eventually stopped that and it would like we’d lose him much sooner than the original timeframe we’d been given, so he chose to go home for a week and then would go into a hospice. I’m not sure what’s happened and I can’t really explain it but he’s now been at home for about 7-8 weeks now and all things considered, he’s okay. He’s got nurses who go out and see him and they’re happy with him. He has a physio who goes out to see him and they’ve had him stand up and even do a couple of steps (it sounds like nothing but after probably 6-9 weeks in bed at hospital or at home, it’s huge). We (myself, my girlfriend, her sister and her boyfriend) have self isolated as much as we physically can, I’ve worked from home for the past 8 weeks and we really isolate for a few days before we’re due to see him. Usually, we spend Christmas Eve with my family and then around lunchtime on Christmas Day, we head to her parents. This time we’re going to her parents on Christmas Eve, staying over in an Air B&B, having Christmas Day with them and then going to my family on Boxing Day. Sorry to put a shit spin on what should be a happy thread and sorry for not really being around/saying anything about it since we found out in July but I hope everyone has a good time and enjoys themselves because things change so quickly so appreciate it.

  35. TalkFootball365's birthday was two days ago! (time flies when you're having fun etc) The forum has come a long way in just a single year. We've now got over 200 members, over 130 thousand posts and 3 new babies (congratulations again @Batard, @Eco and @DeadLinesman). The Staff and I are always working hard to try and bring fresh ideas to the table. I'm mostly trying to make the forum grow by getting our name out there via ads and Google searches although it's not a quick task with all the other football forums out there that have been around a much longer time than us and have themselves more established. Here is to another year!

  36. First month of the year already complete and we are proud to announce our first member of the month for 2019. January has seen a high level of contribution all over the boards - not just football related but many valuable contributions for the benefit and enjoyment for members in off-topic sections, too. We believe that this member has excelled in this respect and we are thankful for his input and posts across TF365. Historically regarded as one of the funniest members on TF365, his posts can provide much amusement for us all at times, and mixing this in with the more serious posts when necessary, we are very happy to announce that the January 2019 Member of the Month is.... @Berserker! It's his first time on the podium since this site's inception back in March 2017, where he finished 3rd, so congratulations sir! Despite a busy schedule (eating Mars bars?), we managed to catch a quick moment for when he received the news: Not far behind Berserker in the votes were @Bluewolf in 2nd and @Mel81x in 3rd.

Coronavirus has taken over the world but current climate and global concerns has paved the way for some ingenuity and creativity across the forum. The lack of football has paved the way for several threads to re-emerge and new ones to be made. The member of the month was creator of an enjoyable game using creative skills and all-round contribution is class anyway. Including this month's win, this member has now been in the top 3 for 5 of the past 6 months, now winning twice. Well done to @Pyfish on your successful yet unique month! Here he is after finding out the news of his latest win: In 2nd was @RandoEFC and in 3rd place was @Carnivore Chris. It goes without saying that we all wish you stay safe amidst the current COVID19 pandemic around the world and hope that we all, along with our families & friends, can all come out of this on the other side in good health Take care of yourselves, guys and girls. Stay safe!

  45. As the football season draws nearer we rely on everyone, especially members, to keep this place ticking over. Sometimes there can be a bit of a lull each summer but there's been plenty of action across the site so firstly thank you for that. For July, there were plenty of votes for this member as his input is never understated & always appreciated; his player knowledge is probably second to none. Never argumentative and always willing to engage in conversation and just comes across as a genuinely good bloke! It appears the summer months are when this member thrives as his last appearances in the top 3 for Member of the Month were June & July last year, where he came 2nd on both occasions. He's gone one step further this time with a clear win to become July 2019's Member of the Month. This month's winner is.... @El Profesor We managed to get a quick glimpse of his reaction as he was given the award: P.S Notable mention for his love for La Casa De Papal/Money Heist. Great programme! In 2nd and 3rd place were @RandoEFC and @Dr. Gonzo respectively. Keep it up everyone, football season begins again soon!

  47. Anton - will attempt to do this to the best of his ability. Stan - A staple of the forum. Holds shit together. Has recently somehow come to the scary conclusion that he has a sense of humour. We are still yet to see it. Cannabis - Absolute spammer. Gets this forum incredibly active. Spends far too much time here instead of on his missus. Which makes me think the relationship is just for show. Teso Dos Bichos - Hardly read his posts but he seems to have improved since the earlier days. Dan - Leicester Dan? Legend of a poster, and seems like a top lad. Sirbalon - Don't always agree with his posts, but the man is a machine in every aspect of the word. Integral part of the forum. The Artful Dodger - Decent member. Used to think he was terrible but have grown to like his posting style. JoshBRFC - Great guy I reckon. I like reading his posts. Berserker - Had him on ignore during TFF for like 3 years. But is now one of my favourite members. Would have a beer with him. Rab - the man who made it all possible. Aaroncpfc -Cracking member. Seems like a top bloke too. Cicero - I definitely do not dislike you! Great poster and decent at Mafia! The Rebel CRS - Ma nigguh! Storts - Actually love him. Tsubasa - Fantastic member. One of the most well rounded and respected members here. Machado - All I can think of is when he went mad as fuck after his Member of the Month award haha Batard - Honestly? Love reading his posts. Would love a beer with the old fella. Lucas - I don't think there's a better member than this bloke. Shame he doesn't post a lot. Dr Gonzo - I love this man too. Not bad for a scouser!! Dickie - Used to think he was a pleb. But a good asset to the forum! ASF - Andre the great. StefBWFC - Smart motherfucker with wicked hair. HoneyNUFC - Go way back. Incredible admin, and it's always great fun reading his posts, which are either incredibly well written and thought out or very fucking funny. Danny - Good lad. Good member. Loves Australia. 6666 - Top lad Viva la FCB = Great member but haven't seen a lot of his posts. Harry - punching well above his weight and a good addition to the forum! Happy Blue - mad fucker haha True Blue - Crazy serbian. But a great member to have on this forum. Fusion - Not bad for a greek. Blue - Has improved a lot, but still needs to relax over his Tesos obsession. Love his interest in the A-League DeadLinesMan - love this bald wanker Bluebird Hewitt - Shame he doesn't visit much. Great guy from what I can tell. Any O'Brien - slimming down Nudge - Football fan. Loves a beer. Speaks multiple languages. Likes travelling. Is there a more perfect woman? FOYM - Good member, and hope he finds a nice lass! Tanskie - seems so anti-australian but overall good member and clearly a smart bloke. Large - Old bloke. Needs to post more. Oliveanblue - I miss him. Spike - Good member. Bit mad, but that's to be expected coming from the east of Australia. Carefreeluke - Super chilled. True Bender - Another member who is a good addition to this fine forum. ....Dan - Arsenal fan? If so, good lad and good member. Rando - Fellow teacher. Unlike my posts, you can tell he is one. Switched on lad. Would have a beer with him. Sorry that I missed a few. May add more later!!
