How's Your Year Been?

Good or bad?

Fabio_Go_Go Posted on 21/12 9:36
re: How's Your Year Been?

Worst year of my life
only high point was eindhoven, and even that doesnt make up for the bad stuff

re: How's Your Year Been?

In between really, not the worst or the best, nothing too memorable.

Excellent. Moved in with new girlfriend who floats my boat, and had the bestest time ever following the Boro in Europe.

If I have a better year in my life I will be a lucky man.

Family life excellent; couple of health scares but all sorted.

Work - utter bollox. New year, new job methinks.

Boro - same as ever. Highs, lows, peaks, troughs - only I think even by our standards we have excelled with the UEFA Cup and then where we are now.

Ah well, roll on 2007.

re: How\\\'s Your Year Been?

footy wise, crap diddly. but getting better, roll on next year!
personal life can be a bit hit n miss......but wife n kids are happy and healthy so things are pretty good. job's rubbish. band stuff's fun as always which is a bonus, and the reason i go to work mainly

Turner_86 Posted on 21/12 10:13
re: How\\\'s Your Year Been?

It's quite sad that most of us base much of how good our year has been on the success of our football team...how the hell do Teesside people manage to be so cheery and friendly!!!

re: How\\\'s Your Year Been?

I've enjoyed this year which I've spent mainly in Spain. Made some good friends and played and watched more football than I have for years. I went to the world cup and the Running of the Bulls.

I've seen, eaten and drank plenty of interesting new stuff and bored most of you shitless about it.

As for the Boro, I managed to get to ten home games and only saw three wins, although the one against Bucharest must have been one of my best ever.

In eight and a half away games I only saw us beat West Brom. Although Roma felt like a win.

Saw Egland lose twice at rugby and went fishing three times and caught nowt each time.

Roll on 2007 which will be the year of Kazakhstan, goat polo and ice fishing.

re: How\\\'s Your Year Been?

Mine has been mad and completely up and down....

Home - Felt like a pikey for awile. 2 months in Brighton was fairly depressing as was 1 month Living in Romford Essex. Moving to Wanstead, Essex was slightly better but much happier in St Johns Wood as much closer to work and now I have a life.

Job - Got a job in march after 18 months doing nowt. Enjoy it, good money and prospects.

Relationship - No comment.

Mates - Settling in London was much easier due to the ex pats. Like a home from home.

Money - Crap, following Boro bankrupt me after 18 months without a job. Happier times ahead though...

Sport - Did a bit of running but not played anywhere near as much footy as I wanted to due to travelling and injury but met a few good lads through FMTTM Regents Park footy. Joined MSS and enjoying the run out.

Travelling - Visited Andorra, Basle, Bucharest, Stuttgart, Dusseldorf, Eindhoven, Las Vegas and Minnesota.

Achievements - Raised 2,500 for MS and did the Nike London Run and Great South Run.

Boro - Brilliant time following Boro in Europe, clocked off a lot of London grounds that I'd not been to like Spurs, fulham and Arsenal (new). We've been crap all year apart froma few brilliant games though.

Next year should be a good one and thoroughly looking forward to it.....

re: How\\\'s Your Year Been?

Been generally a good year, though the Boro's form this season has taken the edge off it.

Quit a job in Nairobi (nice place, crap job) and got a new one in Jakarta paying about twice as much.

My kids are now both settled into good jobs having started the year unemployed.

StevieT Posted on 21/12 11:35
re: How\\\'s Your Year Been?

It should be a bad one really, watching my mam (now in her third year at a residential home) succumbing to the physical cruelty of old age and the tricks it plays on her mind. Funny though, even when at times she can't remember my name or whatever I feel closer to her than ever before in my life. It's a 'different' mam from my earlier life but she still has the same kind eyes. Did I ever evisage years ago that hand washing my mam's hankies in her bathroom sink and sharing a bag of Jelly Babies with her would be truly golden moments in my life? But they are you know.

It's a strange journey is life.

re: How\\\'s Your Year Been?

I did - it was so nice. Goats Cheese for starters, turkey for the main and tiramasu for pudding - I was in heaven.

re: How\\\'s Your Year Been?

Having lost me Dad and me girlfriend dumping me within the space of 5 weeks I can safely say that 2006 is the worst year Ive ever had.

Rome and Eindhoven were amazing though.

COME ON BORO

FookFace Posted on 21/12 11:46

re: How\\\'s Your Year Been?

I would like to eradicate most of my memories of this last year.

I can't though, so I shall carry them with me, and just be content to be a little bit older, and a little bit wiser.

re: How\\\'s Your Year Been?

the better your life is the worse boro do and vice versa I find. I'm hoping we get relegated!

kahunaburger Posted on 21/12 13:17
re: How\\\'s Your Year Been?

Very bitter sweet, moved house and gained the promotion i wanted but then got made redundant in november and now skint so a really depressing end to the year. I'd put me head in the gas oven but theres no money on the gascard.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 21/12 15:17
re: How\\\'s Your Year Been?

Do you want me to lend you some money for the gas card kahuna....
