  1. Age on sign up? Somewhere in my mid-20s I think but I wasn't as active then Age now? 41 Kids when you signed up? None How many kids now? None ... yet Married then? Nope Married now? Yes The first member you liked and respected? I can't honestly think of one person but the discussions around the time were quite heated. I remember a lot of the folks here now that I liked. Your favourite member now? Too many to call out here but I'll try @Dr. Gonzo @Happy Blue @Lucas @nudge @Rab @nudge @Stan @Tommy @Batard @DeadLinesman @Cicero @Spike @Beelzebub etc (apologies to anyone I missed). Where did you live when you first signed up (parents, friends etc..)? Shuttled between Miami and Orlando - Out of college Where you at now? Bangalore (Bengaluru) Life goals then? I wanted to stop working for 15 hrs a day even though it really did a lot of wonders for my discipline now when I look back at it. I also wanted to do an acoustic bar circuit but couldn't find someone to play with consistently. Life goals now? Finalize house payments and stop working in IT within 10 years. Member you most disliked then? Can't call out anyone specifically again. While I may have had one heated argument somewhere along the way I don't think I truly dislike anyone. Not having that kind of discourse on a forum makes it rather dull and this place has had quite its share of non-dull moments. Member you dislike now? No one really. I used to think Teso was a bit overboard till I realized that's just his way of communicating. Forum highlight in your time on the forum? Some that come to mind. That Dwight Yorke post by @The Palace Fan. The time Cannabis tried to round up some folks to party with them on a thread and had them going for a bit. (think it was around the WC time). @Batard's Mafia Wars. The thread where we found out Africa was a country. Etc. etc. Biggest world event that happened in the year that you signed up? I honestly can't remember. Your football teams league position the year of your sign up? Once again honestly can't remember but it was right around Houlier's end as mentioned above. Their position now? I think this is best left unanswered but its been a good ride. Country you live on sign up? USA Country live now? India Oh and happy forum anniversary @Devil

  2. Age on sign up? I think I was 16 or 17 when I signed up on the first forum. Age now? 34 Kids when you signed up? 0 How many kids now? 0 Married then? Nope Married now? Yes The first member you liked and respected? Probably @LFCMike or @DeadLinesman or @Toinho Your favourite member now? I don't wanna make anyone feel bad by naming anyone else. But also @Tommy, @LFCMike, @DeadLinesman, & @Toinho Where did you live when you first signed up (parents, friends etc..)? With my parents Where you at now? At my own place... in a different fucking country Life goals then? Getting as high as I possibly could Life goals now? I want to move to a house I actually like Member you most disliked then? Idk, it takes a lot to get me to truly dislike you over the internet. Was Voice of Reason on the old forum? Or Weird World? Those are good shouts. The dickhead blueshite who said racist (yet also so ignorant it wasn't even accurate) shit to me is also worth a shout. Member you dislike now? lol no comment Forum highlight in your time on the forum? When a bunch of Americans pretending to be Italian decided to download lots of gay porn to their computers so they could send it to @Spike to call him gay. Biggest world event that happened in the year that you signed up? I dunno Your football teams league position the year of your sign up? It was somewhere at the end of Houllier's time, I think? So not great, but not terrible. Their position now? Fuck off with this question Country you live on sign up? England Country live now? USA

  3. @Viva la FCB continues winning ways with Darmstadt as they pick up their 8th win for him this season. It was a winning return to Brighton for @Bluewolf with Palace their next opposition. @Coma's first game with Dortmund went well, ending in a 5-1 win for them. @Lucas remains with Manchester United for one more game at least too after their win over Palace. @DeadLinesman starts his time at Nice with a win too to keep up the pressure at the top end of the table. Porto picked up their second 2-0 win on the bounce to give @CaaC (John) and @RandoEFC 3 points. Bayern remain unbeaten in this seasons Gloryhunter with a win over Wolfsburg. It was a 0-0 draw for RB Leipzig against FC Koln so if they wish @Beelzebub and @Mel81x could move. A draw for Newcastle and West Ham means @Stan can either stay in London or move to the North East. Villa have now lost 3 in 3 in Gloryhunter this season and now @Dr. Gonzo moves to Leicester. @Tommy is switching clubs too after Holstein Kiel lost to Kaiserslautern. My second trip to Swindon didn't work out to my benefit so now it's a second trip to Newport. Bottom of the table @Rucksackfranzose can't catch a break as latest team Fiorentina were beaten by Bologna. @Toinho was also on a losing side as Real Madrid were beaten 1-0 by Mallorca. 37 points separate bottom and top. Is this the time for a surge up the table for some, and a fall from grace for others?

  4. This is why Women don't bother coming forward and reporting sexual harrasment. There gets to a point where the victims refuse to testify anymore after the ordeal of all the court procedures. Sometimes it can take forever for cases to be resolved. Even then, other cases are deemed higher priority. It's easy for victims to become despondant. We saw photos. We heard video recordings. She has bruises, blood from her nose. I've no qualms as going on record and saying he is a very, very lucky man. The system is broken. Less than 1% of sexual offence reports end in a conviction. Thousands don't get reported because of the lack of belief in seeing justice. So what hope is there until the Government do something to correct this? We've seen people get off before, and will continue to do. More needs to be done to allow Women (or Men) to have the balls to come forward and feel they have the backing and support to seek justice. As for Greenwood, he's a young man who has got a second chance in life that he's very lucky to have. Rightly or wrongly, he has to take that. That's all I can say about him right now. But whilst he may be innocent in Black and White on paper, there will always be a contentious Grey cloud that follows him now and he'll never escape it.

  5. Perhaps Man City making tits out of UEFA with their stupendously expensive legal team and uber-aggressive litigation strategy has backfired, in the sense that the PL have watched, learned, and waited until they've got a mountain of charges before doing anything.

  6. RESULTS @Stan remains with West Ham after they beat Derby in the FA Cup. Stan has now hit the 400 point mark overall across all iterations of Gloryhunter so far. Bayern decided they were bored of draws and picked up a win so 3 points for @nudge. With Lucas abandoning them, @CaaC (John) and @RandoEFC stayed with Porto who won their game and pick up 3 points. It wasn't a bad move for @Lucas though as his move to Manchester United earnt him 3 points too. It was another win for RB Leipzig too which is music to the ears of @Beelzebub and @Mel81x as they build even more momentum. And it was a win for @Toinho with Real Madrid. The misery continues at the bottom of the table as @Rucksackfranzose loses again, this time with Torino, so now moves to Fiorentina. After choosing to stick with Lens, @DeadLinesman is on the move after Lens lost to Nice. And here are the next lot of fixtures for us all:

  8. Results - Gameweek One Casualties (3) Just three members fail to make it past the first hurdle in a big improvement compared to the last round. @...Dan and @Rucksackfranzose were scuppered as Athletic Club were defeated at Celta Vigo on Sunday, before Villarreal's home defeat to Rayo Vallecano saw @Storts eliminated as well. Unlucky, chaps. Nothing on the board in La Liga. See you in the next round! Survivors (17) It feels like a long time since we've had as many as seventeen survivors in any Last Man Standing context, but a successful Saturday saw Barcelona first deliver the goods for @Whiskey, @Bluewolf, @DeadLinesman and @6666 with a 1-0 win at Girona. Sevilla comfortably despatched La Liga whipping boys Elche with a 3-0 win that saw @nudge, @Dan, @Michael, @Redcanuck, @Lucas, @Stan, @Viva la FCB, @Tommy, @RandoEFC, @Rick and @CaaC (John) avoid a group massacre. Sunday saw success for a couple of lone wolves as well. @Beelzebub stayed in the hat for Gameweek Two after back Atletico to beat Osasuna on the road, courtesy of Saul Niguez' winning goal, while @Pyfish won the head to head with those who backed Athletic Club, his Celta Vigo pick seeing him safely through. Congratulations on putting a point on the board! Onto Gameweek Two below. Preview - Gameweek Two The fixtures for this weekend are below. Please avoid any repeat picks! Athletic Club vs Cadiz Espanyol vs Osasuna Elche vs Villarreal Atletico Madrid vs Getafe Real Betis vs Celta Vigo Mallorca vs Real Madrid Girona vs Valencia Real Sociedad vs Real Valladolid Barcelona vs Sevilla Rayo Vallecano vs Almeria My pick for Gameweek Two is Atletico Madrid.

  9. Nice guy, but nice guys finish last. He's not cut out for it here. The moment the fans started calling him 'Yank Lampard', you knew he was done. I've got to be totally honest, the club have shocked me. I really didn't think they would have the minerals to act this quickly, I thought they'd draw it out. Whether that's because the 49ers have got involved due to their impending takeover and the threat of relegation looming large, I don't know, but decisive action was needed. You cannot get away with 2 wins in 17, 11pts from a possible 51, especially with the players we have. He should have got more out of them. Done far worse with more resources than Bielsa ever had. We need to be realistic. We would love the Messiah to return, it would excite me what he could do with these calibre of players, but it won't happen. We've always secretly hoped after Bielsa, Poch may become the natural successor but that also won't happen. I think it's going to be Carlos Corberan. He's been at the club under Bielsa, he'll know a lot of the players already and after doing a good job at Huddersfield and Weat Brom in the short time he's been there, I think the club will look at him long term. I also think they will think if we go down, he'll be the man to get us back up. It is a huge risk if we take him. Unproven at this level. Still not sure if it's the right call but it's one I'd be prepared to get behind.

Week 21 Results Perth Glory 2-2 Newcastle Jets Norwich 0-3 Burnley Aberdeen 3-1 Motherwell Elche 3-1 Villarreal Troyes 1-3 Lyon Magdeburg 1-1 Karlsruhe Feyenoord 2-2 PSV Galatasaray 2-1 Trabzonspor Inter Milan 1-0 AC Milan Barcelona 3-0 Sevilla Round-up Plenty of goals to go around as this week had eight games that had 3+ goals, and three of those with a 1-3/3-1 scoreline. The top score from all of that was courtesy of @Viva la FCB who amassed 21 points! This helped close the gap on the likes of @CaaC (John) and @Rucksackfranzose. Meanwhile at the top, I've regained the lead by the finest of margins from @N U F C, but @Bluebird Hewitt is now in 3rd after a very high score of 20 points. @The Liquidator loses a little ground, but he and @nudge are now ahead of @Bluewolf.

  14. Yeah, I saw it yesterday when you posted it and then read the methodology of his alleged forecasts. I generally try to keep an open mind when it comes to things like that, especially considering that groundbreaking ideas and discoveries in science have often been ridiculed in the past before they became well established and universally accepted. However, there are few things that irks me in this case. Firstly, the wording of his prediction - "sooner or later" is hardly a forecast, and definitely not an accurate or scientific one, even if the timing of his tweet this time kind of coincided with the actual earthquake a few days later. In other words, you could say that sooner or later there will be a major earthquake in any seismically active area along any major fault lines, and your prediction will be true, too. It's not much different from actual seismologists saying that there's an x% chance of a major earthquake happening in a certain region within the next x years; his original prediction of "sooner or later" was even more vague than that. Secondly, when I first read that his forecasts are based on planetary positions and movement, I expected gravitational force of celestial bodies on Earth to be the reasoning behind it, which could at least be plausible, even if the calculations do not support the idea either (which he himself admits, too, so he says gravitational force plays no role). Instead though, it appears to be based solely on the planetary geometry - according to him, a certain alignment/conjunctions of the planets releases some electromagnetic charge especially when Mercury and 90 degree angles are involved, which, in regards of plausibility, is about at the level of astrology for me... So I will remain highly skeptical (to put it mildly), unless he can use his model to accurately forecast earthquakes on a regular basis and until it can be reproduced by other scientists using the same methodology.

  21. @FABRIZIOROMANO @Lucas to Manchester United...HERE WE GO! Unbelievable!! Agreement reached right now for an immediate transfer from Porto having only just arrived a few days ago via Sporting. I'm told Lucas was sold the moment he saw Man Utd get another easy home draw in the FA Cup last night like the flukey cunts that they are. Lucas has denied rumours he's only joining to jinx Man Utd in their two upcoming February fixtures with arch rivals (and all round better guys) Leeds. Documents signed and sent to @Pyfish before midnight so Lucas can be registered for Man Utd's game tomorrow night v Forest in the Carabao Cup. Huge deal this late in the day but Lucas is on his way to Old Trafford with the rest of the prawn sandwich brigade!! Get your Norwich City scarfs out lads!

  23. It's really not weird to believe that at all... It might not have been proven scientifically yet, but cases of animals behaving weirdly before natural disasters have been well-documented all throughout the history of the mankind, and even from the top of my head, there are quite a few plausible potential explanations to that. Different animals have different senses, and might be able to pick up smaller vibrations/tremors and low frequency sound waves way before we do. Also some animals, birds in particular, might be be able to sense the electromagnetic changes and anomalies underground that happen before the earthquakes. Insects living in the ground at the fault lines may sense the small gas pockets, etc. I know one thing - if I saw animals behaving weirdly and fleeing, I would definitely flee with them, too!

  25. You don’t get it at all. If you think this is an ‘agenda’ you are sorely mistaken. If you step back and wonder why United is the most famous club in the world and your answer is ‘cuz we are da best n da biggest’ you have no idea how media, marketing, or even the Premier League works on a fundamental level. Busby Babes and George Best have nothing to do with the globalisation of English football in the 90s, the strangulation of grassroots football, the commercialisation, the transition of supporters into customers. The Premier League was a tool to crush the smaller teams for the benefit of the wealthy clubs, there is nothing organic about how and what happened in the 90s, that was the death of football.

  26. It is okay when Man United, Everton, Tottenham, Arsenal, and Liverpool, breakaway from the FA to form the Premier League to have predatory TV rights deal that literally take away money from the rest of English football, but it is bad when Man City have outside financial doping. Grow up guys. If you can’t see your own club for the poison that it is, you’re in denial. The absolute arrogance of some fans to out down other’s when their team is equally as guilty for the landscape of English football is astounding. The First Division money was literally reinvested into the entirety of English football, Premier League money only divided between Premier League clubs and not even evenly. For a culture that is keenly aware of classism, it is strangely defensive of the ‘old boys club’ that is football clubs. Blathering on about history and prestige like some crusty ponce sitting in his country side manor.

  28. S2.E5 - Duane Barry: 7/10 The first entry in an arc that covers for actress Gillian Anderson's pregnancy by temporarily giving her character Dana Scully less screen time. As such, this episode is largely carried by the acting from David Duchovny and guest star Steve Railsback. This leads to some tense moments, but with hostage situations having been done so many times in law enforcement dramas, this episode is less appealing than the one that follows it. S2.E6 - Ascension: 8/10 A direct continuation of Duane Barry's story. This time, the claimed alien abductee is on the run while doing a little abducting of his own, pursued by law enforcement, and of course by Fox Mulder. The whole chase scene with the air tram and Alex Krycek's meddling is the highlight of the episode and makes it stand out more than the start of Duane Barry's arc. S2.E7 - 3: 6/10 With Scully temporarily out of the picture, it's up to Mulder to carry this vampire-themed episode. Equipped with his usual wit and aided by the romantic chemistry with guest star Perrey Reeves (who was, unsurprisingly, Duchovny's actual girlfriend at the time), the episode is off to a decent enough start. As a character, Fox Mulder has enough charisma and depth to fly solo for a while, but he is unfortunately let down by a boring script that somehow manages to be convoluted and shallow at the same time. The mystery at the heart of this story is not compelling enough to be drawn out over 45 minutes, and there are too few moments of suspense (apart from the sexual tension between Mulder and mystery woman Kristen Kilar) to keep the engine running for the episode's duration. One fun fact about this episode is that it appears to have enraged fans at the time for showing Mulder sleeping with another woman. As someone who has always found the romance between Mulder and Scully little more than boring fan service, I could appreciate this aspect, but it's not enough lift 3 up from mediocrity. S2.E8 - One Breath: 8/10 The conclusion to Scully's arc started in Duane Barry and continued in Ascension. Out of these episodes, One Breath emerges as the strongest. It features Duchovny's most emotional acting up to this point in the series, and it also marks the first time William B. Davis really gives color to his role as the Cigarette Smoking Man, dropping such iconic lines as "I've seen presidents die." Another stand-out performance is given by Steven Williams as Mr. X, whose actions foreshadow the increasingly darker tone of the Conspiracy episodes in coming seasons. Finally, it also features Scully's iconic dream-like sequences, showcasing The X-Files' colorful cinematography. It's a complete package for a solid Conspiracy episode, although it does already show hints of this storyline getting increasingly convoluted as the seasons pass, with many a shady figure in an overcoat conspiring against other shady figures in overcoats.

I make one exception to the rule actually, leaked celebrity photos/videos, if someone is stupid enough to put it out there and it gets leaked then I don't mind that.
