Ive been away Alan...went down to London to look after the athletes in the Olympics for a while...doing the same job, I dont use this site much these day's, all the old crowd had gone or got deleted. Ive had a few squabbles with alot as have most of us, but at the end of the day its only words on a screen, so what's it matter.
The Hammers lot. Thats a bit tribal there. Most are ex ICF and under 5's crew, and now getting old as we all are. I got accepted following a mammoth fight with Huggy, who then became a mate..and now who's now moved on to who knows where,and of course my Birmingham roots were a feature in the old days with them too...especially after Feb 23rd 1983 I think it was...Blues v Hammers at St Andrews FA Cup 5th round...we all gained respect after that match. I still speak to Irons and Gibbo, Soppy and Bobby..Mel too.. so I'll pass on your regards. I thought you got accepted so I dont know why you felt like that...
Butch here ?. well its common knowledge we fought like dogs for a while, but he also is a damn good poster (IMO) when he wasnt arguing with most... I take as I find, and let bygones be bygones.....seems a shame somethings that were said and done, but that happens and in the past (to me) now.
Leeds board. Yes I agree. a fine bunch, akin to the original Hammers board. I think apart from Andy, and Bats...most have gone from there too now...unless I'm mistaken. It was actually on the Leeds board that Howy and myself first crossed swords. He came on following Leed relegation to the 2nd division, and threw his weight around. He soon quietened down though and was accepted. Just why it all went tits up with him in the end was always a mystery to me, as I didnt say nothing to deliberately annoy him...well untill he started on me that was...then that was that...still enjoyed it though, especially when we occupied the Sheff U board, ......but you know, its great to be a child again for a while..
Wonder what happened to old Howy....Stevebluenose reckoned he got locked up in Dubai when he went over there to work for a while...Im not so sure. I think he got deleted. Pity. I liked old Howy despite his Yorkshire accent.
Dunno whether Ill come on as much as I used to again...maybe I will if others do, but its going to be hard to see alot coming back again.
