After the Apocalypse
Reports vary widely on how or even when it happened. All that is known is that several weeks ago, on Wednesday May 27, without warning, the world as we know it was turned upside down. Plucky survivors are only now emerging from this cataclysmic event. Slowly they have been gathering in familiar places, bonding together, and dazed and shaken they are trying making sense of events and pick up the pieces of their broken world.
Periodic poster Boro boss Jooles was one of the first to stumble his way onto the now unfamiliar 7046 thread. Soon he was joined by others, Liverpool’s Dan the man, former Derby failure Nikidinho, then tentatively bigtunna , mistermalcom, and hog0101, who cussed and bemoaned their way onto what was now seemingly passing as the forum. “Everything went black for a while” recounted Carlisle manager Alurcard, “and then I was surrounded by a brilliant white light, in place of the familiar green pastures of old. At first I thought I’d died and that this was heaven,” Anth continued, “But then I realised I was in hell.” It was not clear, however, of whether he was describing the new forum or life in division 2.
In the days following the apocalypse one by one familiar faces were found and guided to the safety of familiar pastures. Millwall boss Craig was found naked and shivering in his blog; Biggamemo was discovered wedged in a tiny space between divisions 1 and 2; and touchingly, Man United supremo SOAP was found huddled together with Fulham boss Dom Latchouce in the vast expanse of the empty Craven Cottage trophy room doing whatever was needed to keep each other warm and comforted.
It has yet to be confirmed whether the ‘happening’ was a deliberate SM attempt to subvert the EC7046 end of season voting or not, or whether it was orchestrated by sirmarkhughes to allow Liverpool to slip into the SMFA Cup under the cover of darkness. As many point out the timing with the end of votes was particularly uncanny but SM spokesman have denied any such plot, instead asking that you submit a ticket and they get back to you to close it in a couple of months. For now though, survivors are resigned to their fate and struggle on as best they can in this strange new world. As to where everyone else has gone, nobody knows, but if you come across these missing souls please lead them safely to of the EC7046 discussion thread, lest that world, and others like it, disappears forever in this strange white wasteland we find ourselves inhabiting. The future is bleak, but for the sake of our children's children we must struggle on...
