Of the current wannabe board celebs only Lisbon and PP would even get in the ressies for the all time board big hitters. They may be mid-table Championship makeweights who don't deliver consistently but that is where we are as a board now. Back in the day they wouldn't have even made the bench.

Here is the OFFICIAL ALL TIME BEST XI (based on ability to get a response, passion, added value, wit, wisdom and contribution to the community. It's about quality not quantity)

Capt5 - unremarkable

Flar - a good attempt at obnoxious humour when he comes on now and then but nothing impressive really.

PP - Plays on words a bit now and then. takes the micky out of inferior,unpopular posters like me but strangely gets highly regarded because of it.

then we have the king of all posters (in a way) - At King son

best posters were definitely the ones on here from 2001 to the uefa cup final. things didnt seem the same after that. seemed a lot more decent debate then. boro were doing well back then probably made a difference. it was better when you knew very few people on here and that create an air of mystery. too many cliques and back patting now.uefa cup trips meant everyone met each other. these days seems more about point scoring, trying to be the most popular poster and just argue for the sake of it and hatred for others. special mention for briggsy who predictably disappeared once smac left. suprised no one has mentioned regularreader, was a big player in the early years. 2001-2006 seem the best years on here. even bandy didnt know who i was back then. cant believe i've been on here since about nov 2000. hopefully i'll have moved on by 2021. wonder who will still be around in 10 years time?

Meeting people from the board definitely changes things. The board was more exciting when posting anonymously but I've met some great people through the board and also achieved things that wouldn't have been possible without this place. When one door closes another one opens. Facebook has also had a big role to play in changing the board demographic.

The success of the board is undoubtedly linked to the teams success on the pitch aswell. People much prefer to read success stories than people moaning about everything from club shop staff to the bovril.

aye a good example of that is PP complaining because people have issues regarding things not going right, the board reports on whats going on at the time, you cant gloss of the fact that things are so bad just because you dont like the negativeness of it all.

Part of Ponces rant was right, there's trolls about from other clubs who just try and annoy people like the sad gimps they are but we've been crap for a few years now.

Best Ever FMTTM Posters....

fans from other clubs come on here to wind people up??

Not something i have ever noticed a great deal.

But thats not my point his rant on the whole was at boro fans who are talking negatively because the situation the club is in is a negative one. He is your stereotypical poster that does not like the fact that we are in the situation we are and because of that the fans are talking about just THAT. Instead of cup finals and european trips and signing international class players.

You move with the times and it would seem some cant and even resent the fact others can.

Razmond_HWDR Posted on 28/01/2011 07:44

you mean the inaccuracy regarding everybody wanting the club to sign Alves?

Because thats not how I recall it. A player boro were prepared to pay 12million for before people demanded we sign the player. Fans were demanding an experienced striker, and what we got was Alves, not exactly the same.

I would suggest that some one has recalled the Alves signing inaccurately to have a go at boro fans, and that cannot be right.

you have just commented on something you didnt even read. Yet you are complaining that it is difficult to have a reasoned debate on the board.

'reasoned debate is difficult to come by'

How can someone have a reasoned debate with someone when the other comments on something they havent even read?

I read the opening post, I didnt read the thread.

we were only debating his opening post.

The opening post where he, i felt inaccurately, portrayed boro fans as demanding specifically Alves for 12million. However i recall many demanding an experienced striker, and we ended up with Alves. Sometimes it is easy to have a go at boro fans with inaccuracies, and the is just one example

You must have read his comments regarding boro fans wanting to sign Alves before the club had signed the player?

the rest of that thread didnt have much debate to it.

I'm not bothered to be honest, I felt some of Ponces post had value, some was for a bit of a reaction but I'll let you argue the post with him.

fair enough.

i thought we were just highlighting 'inaccuracies posted by people in order to support their negative arguments'

and this regarding the Alves situation was a fine example and cannot be good for the board.

But if you feel it wasnt inaccurate and just an over reaction at best then fair enough.

I remember the abuse towards Lanb, gate and Gibson for not signing Alves after he scored 7 [Seven] for Heerenveen in one game.

I can't believe no one has mentioned CHAS-THFC - 'you Boro punks' - he was great value and if the stories were true RIP.

fair enough maybe that is what he was talking about.

I recall no such specific target mentioned like that until the club had mentioned the potential signing.

It was No fan demanded signing.

I was talking generically, I wasnt arguing specifics.

ok. but it is a specific example of generally what is happening.

I guess if you want fans to pull together and support a team last thing you do is turn around and slag them off.

It is a specific example but this thread is trying to highlight the genius of the board and not argue about Ponces thoughts on signing Alves,

apologies when i came into the thread you were highlighting the issues with the board.

too many cliques on it these days which allows one posters who may be out of order to get backed by many other posters.

its a shame.

My favourite time in the life of this message board was early 2002.

In the months building up to the FA Cup semi final with Arsenal at OT there was a real sense of an online community.

It did coincide with a successful time for the club, when we could see some smart managerial decisions by Steve McClaren on and off the pitch (e.g Carbone AND Windass on loan).

It was a hint of the successes to follow - although there was never the same unity after "Leedsgate" and opinion on the manager and his tactics became divided.

However, in early '02 there was a healthy balance of genuine humour, surrealism, nostalgia and decent football banter.

There was the odd abusive contributor - but they stood out as such, rather than being one of several.

Sadly, many of the regular contributors of the time - several of whom are mentioned above - are no longer seen here.

This time next year - when a band of young, improving local players starts to climb the table towards the play-off places playing good football, under a good manager and a decent man we may see a return to the fun of 2002....

But that will be 10 years on.....

And I may have found a life by then! [^]

'Windass on loan' wasnt that El Tel?

If you can then my vote goes to:

Indeed, he was, Raz. My apologies!

I just always associate Windass with that Semi Final game in particular.

The image of his curling shot in the 1st half is imprinted on my brain!

We were sat right behind it and were celebrating the goal - before their keeper (Wright?) pulled off a save.

I recall El Tel coming and as the saviour of our season made one signing and that was Windass and he turned out to be outstanding for us at that point in time.

I would have loved to have seen El Tel and Robson continue at the club.

Tel embarrassed himself with that move to Leeds. As short a time as Clough at that club?

pink ponce is a light weight compared to some of the heavy weight in the early days. stuff was original and not repeated over and over again back then. Like i said these days people just want to appear the most popular person on here and goign for quantity over quality

I can only think of a handful of posters who come on here for the right reasons. usually to debate something, sometimes Boro related. What a suprise when that actually happens. Nowadays it's just a place for the insecure. The ones in life who need a bit of a boost or a pick me up and like to tell tales of how wonderful they are. There's too many of em. They spend all day talking about THEM. They never show any interest in anything else apart from themselves. All their posts are about THEM, what they are doing, where they are going, what colour their sh it is. It's sad, desperate and incredibly wierd. it's quite funny at times seeing the usual suspects come on with their multiple usernames especially when you know who they are and indeed some of them do actually converse with themselves. It's amazing how little people know about you on here but fascinating how much you know about them with the right access[;)]

thats the thing ponce, i dont really care about you. you are easy meat compared to the old players on here from years ago before your time. i had a lot tougher/better debates back then. you are far too predictable. still think i'm posting on the vickers blog? you getting paranoid by the sounds of it. i've got better things to do than to pretend i'm you.seriously i dont really care about you on here. you are a nobody apart from a username on here at this moment in time. you are just a lad working down south who come back to boro every weekend to flash the cash. all you are is self centred borolad with nothing original to talk about

I always liked Gillandi. He would post some good craic. Never got personal and argued like hell til dawn to hammer home his point. Never ever resorted to acting big time because he knew he didnt have to. Run of the mill gadge. Borobuddah was the same. Had some good "run-ins" with them over the years[:P]

Once the word count increase, you know you're bothered ... Next you'll be using loads of smilies to try and disguise it ...

I don't think you're pretending to be me on Vickers' blog, I know ...

It must be difficult getting out of bed on a morning Sas, with nothing to do but complain at every opportunity and be a general miserable sod ... Cheer up [^]
