  1. Hello, hello, hello! Thought I'd check in on everyone but there only seems to be very few familiar faces left on this forum! Who still logs on regularly? Not sure what's gone on but the new interface is more off putting then it was before, or at least it was as I quit the fame last year. I hope everyone is alright
  2. Much like in EC 7046, my decision to quit as manager of Preston was difficult over time, but it's been coming for some time and was an easy enough decision in the end (tonight). I've loved playing a part in this gameworld right from the very start, and to do it with the club I support made it even more special. I've been promoted and relegated a few times, and as the table shows, sadly I go out with Preston being relegated. I haven't given them the attention they deserve for some time, but I know someone will be able to rejuvinate them sooner or later. Thanks to everyone I've interacted with for making my time here worthwhile. Obviously it's only a game at the end of the day, but the forum adds a different aspect and makes it more than that. Anyway, this is verging towards cheesy and cringey and I'm going to stop Best of luck to everyone for the future, and best of luck to whoever takes over at North End. Take good care of them!
  3. A decision that wasn't easy after so long, but also one that has, in all honesty, been coming for some time. Due to various different reasons, my time on SM has been non-existent for pretty much all of 2015 thus far, and even as far back as last summer I wasn't really as active as I once was. I've print screened all the important details about my time at Spurs (from what I could find) and have saved it for keepsake, but other than that I have a lot of great memories in this game world and want to thank everyone for making it worthwhile. I've interacted with so many great people that it'd be unfair to list them incase I missed someone out, but you know who you are. I leave as the third highest ranking manager of all time in the gameworld, so it's not a bad way to go out! I feel like I'm shortchanging everyone with such a short post, but I honestly could go on about stuff that you'd soon get bored of reading haha. To put it simply: Best of luck to everyone for the future, and best of luck to whoever gets the Spurs job. Look after them (Bale especially!!!!!!!)
  4. Re: Official Sky Bet League 1 & 2 Thread What. An. Experience. I can't tell you how nice it is to be back in the Championship and to end the play-off hoodoo along the way. It's easy to say now, but the heartbreak of losing to Colchester on the last day is something that I'm sort of glad happened now, as my greatest experience as a North End fan wouldn't have happened had we won. Sadly, someone was always going to be the loser on the day, so I'm sad to see you miss out, Dom. The play-offs are horrible if you don't win, we certainly know that already! You have the quality and I'm sure will be fighting for promotion again next season. In terms of transfers, I imagine we have a big summer ahead. First things first, we need to try and get Beckford, Gallagher and Johnstone signed up permanently, and then we can go about recruiting new faces. Those three mentioned have been crucial to us going up, especially yesterday. There's been a few rumours circulating already, but there's most likely not a lot of substance to the majority of them. Exciting times! The new fixtures are released on the 17th of June.

  6. Re: Official Premier League Discussion Thread Quickest hat-trick in PL history.

  8. Re: Official Sky Bet League 1 & 2 Thread So, so excited! It's about time we got ride of this play-off curse, and where better to do it than the national stadium? Genuinely don't mind who we come up against, though both Swindon and Sheffield United bring something dangerous to the table. However, the morale and confidence of the team after today must be huge, so let's hope it's a positive outcome for once! Best of luck if it's Swindon, Dom. Not too much luck though
  9. Re: Official Premier League Discussion Thread Sunderland are starting to become the new Wigan.

  11. Re: The Politics Thread Like us Northern commoners even matter. Sent from an iRock 3
  12. Re: The Politics Thread Horrible. Makes it worse that the vilest woman in the country won't be buggering off as well. Doubt she'd have lived up to her promise anyway.
  13. Re: Official Manchester United Thread Deal for Depay confirmed by both United and PSV. I'm your go-to transfer man these days
  14. Re: The Politics Thread Yeah, like Adam said, it's just like Portugal Just up the road for me so I could go any time, but I'll be going when my parents go I think.
  15. Re: The Politics Thread Is tomorrow the day that the toffs are finally turfed out on their arses? We can only hope so.
  16. Re: Official Sky Bet League 1 & 2 Thread Excited and nervous at the same time. One game season. Come on boys!
  17. Re: Official Sky Bet Championship Thread Well done to Watford. Still going for Bournemouth to go up as well (sorry Bournemouth fans... ).
  18. Re: Official Manchester United Thread Sounds like Gundogan has all but signed on the dotted line, according to the German version of SSN (and a few other reliable sources according to others, though I'm just going off what I've seen with my own eyes). Contract to be signed this weekend.

  20. Re: Official Sky Bet Championship Thread I see everyone thinks Bournemouth will be up. I really they do it! So, so close to call. I see 'Boro are 1-0 up at Norwich, but it's still early days yet. I'll be rooting for the underdog in the PO's, but Watford and Norwich (based on my predictions) will be incredibly hard to beat.
  21. Re: Official Sky Bet Championship Thread 1. Bournemouth 2. Middlesbrough Play-off Winner: Ipswich That's what I'm going for. A Norwich/Ipswich derby in the PO final would be great too.
  22. Re: Official Bundesliga Discussion Thread Newcastle. Called it.
  23. Re: Official Liverpool Thread The Sterling thing is ridiculous. Typical British media praising and hyping him when he's the man of the moment, then painting him as Hitler when he does something that's perfectly legal to do in this country. Anyway, that's not the important issue today. RIP to the 96. May justice finally come soon.
