Post Using Twitter instead of Forums
I'm thinking of closing the forums down as they've been pretty inactive for a long time now. I think most of the users here are now on Twitter and participate in any discussion on there so if you'd like to join in any discussion then feel free to follow:

https://twitter.com/united_online

If anyone objects and feels that the forum could come back to life then I'm happy to keep it open but it seems more trouble to keep an eye on spam and robots joining these days than actually contributing to the site.

I'd agree with you Dave.

There's been barely anything going on here for ages.

There's also now a Facebook page that most of the regulars are now joining in on:

Probably a sign of the times that I looked for a "Like" button for this post! :?

I've only made a handful of posts here compared to lot of you guys, but it certainly was fun at one point to check out and participate in the talks. I wouldn't mind meeting you guys in the pub once a week, but for that you'd need to come to Tallinn :) - so if we can keep the discussion going in FB then I'm more than happy to join in.

Certainly thanks to Dave and others involved for keeping it going so long.

Twitter is nice I suppose. But, I do like these old school forums a bit better. Facebook is starting to get on my nerves. At least, it's more like the pub here.

Never used twitter, facebook is ok, but I to like using forums. I hope we can get this moving again.

I was a big culprit of going away, due to the job I had. But I'm back!

Evenin all! Nice to see some signs of life in the old place! I was guilty of drifting off but do miss the forum, there's nowt quite like it for me. I don't do twitter. What are we all making of the new era so far then? We seem to be making a total balls up of the transfer activity to me. Is Fabregas really the only target?

It's not going well so far, I wonder where Ed Woodwood ended up after dashing back from Australia?
