And my moneys on the latter .
I’m an old Carp angler from way back and I can tell a seasoned fisherman from a Noob ( I know I found out what it means ).
The forums changed since Footymad days.
It is not a forum for good debate anymore.
No criticism but it is more a social media vehicle nowadays, and very good one at that. Gonzos vlogs, Geo and Gonzos talks and Mike vlogs are an entertaining watch that is just about as good as any West ham social media output....but as a forum it has died. The posters who were characters have left and current posters lack the IQ for a ding dong.
That said there are lots of positives as the owners do a lot for supporters and have created a good, social scene for (socially inept fans on match days but the banter of footymad doesn't exist anymore..... other than a couple of months ago when I sent private messages under the poster name of Hammerschat Admin telling them they were c*nts etc...and they posted on here thinking asking for explanations thinking they were from the Hammerschat owners. That was quite funny.
No one asked your opinion.
