A real fan takes the rough with the smooth.

I always knew Calum was a soft shite.

Go eat your prawn sandwiches in whatever country your residing in.



Edit: ............ yes I'm joking before Calum gives me a full on sermon. X

Activity around here has waned drastically due to the state of the club.

While I've been wracking my brain trying to choose someone it's reminded me of so many great memebers who have given up or post sporadically at best.

Off the top of my head Dai Dillenger, Mecurial Gooner, Fenice, DenisE, Dubs4Sam, Callum, Brandon, ThisisnotanID, Pudpop, ESFSAFC, Ivan Itchybumn, Git, UFGN, ThereisBearCum, and Est.83 are all top posters whose presence has decreased or vanished altogether over the last year or so.

It's depressing tbh, the board used to have so much more vitality.

Shout out to all the real ones who are still here keeping the forum alive. <3

For me it's been two things.

As you said, the state of the club is one thing. Moving away and being in another time zone has been part of me being less incentivised to watch and happier to miss games, but the state of the club has had a big effect. I just don't care anymore, or at least nowhere near as much as I did. I'm not angry or sad, just numb to it all until things change for the better. There's so little to be excited about and I just don't feel it's worth my time.

The second reason is that this place is riddled with antagonism that I just can't deal with. I was part of that for a long time so am not pointing the finger, but when you detach yourself for a few months then come back and try and engage in some debates it becomes so apparent. Over the past few months I've dipped in and out to read and occasionally post and it staggers me sometimes how vitriolic and petty people on here can be to each other (and again, I did it myself many times over the years). When I bring myself to read something and potentially get involved, I realised that I just cannot be bothered with it. There's little in the way of discourse on this forum, much of the fun has gone and it's become a place where one-upping another member has become more important than having a healthy debate. It's sad, really, because I used to love this place and remember when that wasn't the case. I know the Wenger debate has been a big factor and we're all sick of how things are at Arsenal, which fuels the vitriol, but it doesn't half become clear when you remove yourself from this forum and detach yourself emotionally from the state of the club - it's just not worth the time, effort and emotion.

I hope in the next year or two things change and as the fanbase as a whole becomes more optimistic, this forum will too and the healthy, fun debates that were prominent here return. I can't see myself being anything other than a casual onlooker until then though.


Great post [emoji106]

You have more ability to do something about it than most.

When the forum was at its best the mods in charge of it dealt with trouble makers
Oh he is awful..... but I like him!

Its not that bad on here atm, I think some of you are exaggerating.

In the "Golden old days" you had people like Kyle and Propa_Nutcase posting here so its not like it never had trolls and people who got into beefs.

At one point I think it got a bit out of hand but the Mods have banned people etc so its relatively calm here at the moment ......... even GA has ceased trolling which is a miracle in itself.

I honestly think people are just p*ssed off and fed up with AFC at the moment, AFC is not exactly bringing good vibes and banter is it.

As DT on AFTV likes to call it, its toxic atm.

UFGN even threatened to start following Leighton Orient or whoever it was and that was way before it got quiet around here.

When Arsene steps down I think it'll brighten up, as for trolls etc name and shame them then? I don't think there are many left so ................ :dontknow:

Don't really know where to post this so here will do. I'm speechless.

Someone leaked a video of Sanchez taking a shower.

Putting this out there as UFGN mentioned it in another thread: London is definitely one of my top cities for living/party balance. Not done Eastern Europe/Nordics yet but smashes US (liquor laws closing clubs early) and large Asian cities for me. Seoul last year off the hook but still a smidgen of racism here and there. Be interesting to hear some fellow members' favourite places so I can sort out a holiday.
