  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    The KGB knows what you corrupt Tory pig-dogs are up to in the Premier League.

    Abramovich is my general and Chelsea FC rools.

    They're playing NUFC at the weekend so their week will only get better I suspect. :(

    Probably.

    16 of their 23 goals have come in 4 games against the bottom 3 sides and Everton (who where in the bottom 4 till last week). They've only scored 7 goals in their other 7 games combined against teams in the top half.

    And Newcastle are 11th.

    Watched the documentary 'Shankly: Nature's Fire' last night on iPlayer. Shankly is passionately remembered as the man who single-handedly built Liverpool into one of the most successful football clubs in the world.

    The doc conveys the passion of the man and his application of socialist principles on the football field. He took the club from Division 2 to the final of the European Cup where they were robbed by a genuinely dodgy ref.

    Incredibly three of the greatest managers to have worked in British football - Bill Shankly, Matt Busby and Jock Stein - were from Ayrshire mining families, born barely 20 miles apart. The doc was well put together, my only complaint was we didn't hear enough the great man himself. Still remember Emlyn Hughes saying somewhere else the only thing he thought about having scored was only would that have put a smile on Shankly's face?

    Truly. I thought he had a chance at Everton. No-one else seems to want it. Sunderland though? They’re a bigger basket case than City were when we were never in same division for seven consecutive seasons and we dropped to the old division two.

    Possibly the tightest game tomorrow will be Arses V Spurs. Anyone think they can do better than 2-2?

    I wish Chris Coleman well in his future career and understand his desire for league football, but why on earth take over the basket case that is Sunderland? :eek:

    Staying up would be a KPI success for any Sunderland manager

    I'd settle for a draw, hoping Chelsea do the same or even better, lose.
    All down the pub shortly, must ensure I get a bar stool.

    Arses probably deserved this. I am of a benevolent nature and this is probably the highlight to their season as we have far more to play for.
