Ten Years and Running

Fri Dec 26, 2014 6:19 pm

It occurred to me in recent days that this little community of ours has been together for over 10 years now. Now I know that's not everyone, some of you never even ventured on Talking Reds. But this place came about because of it and I don't really separate it in my mind.

It doesn't really matter to me when people joined us. Be it back in 2004, or only this year, every one of us has formed part of this little community. We've laughed, we've cried, we've argued, we've posted gifs of Mick McCarthy and done the first two again whilst doing the last one.

We've all grown up, some of us have got married, and even had kids, moved countries or continents. But we're here for two reasons, our shared love of Manchester United, and whether we care to admit it or not we love the people on here.

We've lost members along the way, some with some finality, others we hope will drop back in some day. But others have joined us, and some who have been with us a while have finally spoken up, even if it's only one word. Frankly I think it's pretty amazing that we've survived all these years, and I hope I see you all here next Christmas.

You've all played a part in brightening my day for the last 10 years. I wouldn't want to chat United with anyone else. To all of you, you bunch of beautiful bastards.

Ditto. I'd like to think I've made some great friends on here. Some I've met, some I havent but all friends who share a common love nonetheless.

I signed up after Ronaldo's return against Villareal. 2008, and was banned. Came back as a Ghanaian named Ideye Ibenegbu.

Can't really add to what Dante said, but thanks to everyone on here for making the board such an enjoyable & interesting place to post on.

Some you've met, are friends with on facebook, yet when they come and say hello on the number 67 bus to Manchester you don't have the foggiest clue who they are!

So that was you!?? Didn't like that dude very much. He was so rude when I asked for how to get tickets to OT for my first time.

But you're alright. When not talking about messi or villa. Or neymar. Or anything really. :P

Ideye was me thought it was common knowledge. Did I honestly do that? Apologies. But as I said before I was a retard back then tbh.
