    I reckon it has to be up there! It has seen off most of the other watford forums.
  2. Did you get the chance and if so any response from RD ? Always a bit more concerning when a regular poster suddenly stops without warning and without any obvious reason.

    Before my time on here but have now read the 2249 posts of the Simms thread, it is a belter. However, the link on the last post to the second thread doesn't work and I'm left in limbo without knowing who dunnit, where do I find the rest???

    I joined under another profile in 06 but was never a prolific poster. For those wondering I don’t miss my old profile at all.

    I held my own in some of the more niche games in the arcade for a couple of years. This thread has been great to remember a few names.

    My favourite thread had to be the one where someone was asking for information about their deceased father and got some successful results.

    I think we met when we sat 2 or 3 rows apart and I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs Moog

    Ian108 or a number similar. I was always trying to top him but I remember he telling us how he found the site randomly and just liked playing the games. Weird place for an Aussie to find!

    @DrewH I remember going onto the forums on my mobile phone in class with you and making a post around 2007. Admin replied saying mobile internet is a fad and won't catch on haha

    I believe he said he was at work and our site was one he could find which wasn't blocked

    Remember that one well - I asked the poster if I could share the details of his story in one of the Facebook groups I was in and there was a guy there (The fan with the big beard, Stax I think he goes by) who was a friend of the poster's dad.

    The guy who made the original post (Graeme I think? I was his friend on FB at the time too) said he found loads out about his dad's trips to Watford games, etc.

    Had forgotten all about it until you mentioned it.

    Board room meetings??

    I used to do the Watford Observer round up, back in the days when I could get my hands on a copy, but I don't remember an executive role.

    Might be because I'm 8 pints in, but that is post of the season so far.

    I sent a PM to Rookery Dad after we smashed Klopp's "Invincibles". Just to let him know if he wasn't somehow aware. Never replied. I hope he is O.K.

    I missed @Burnsy when he was absent but we all know why and fully respected the reason. Even HB1 vanished for a bit then returned. Was Pidge ever a member? He runs TMA and has the most amazing haircut.

    Played football with him for a few years and did co host for the podcast early on for a few months. He never mentioned the forums once so I doubt it.

    bert slater is another who I have not seen in a while. User name is self explanatory so I assume he is of more advanced years. I hope he is well and still lurking here.

    After today, how much is it going to take to get a piece commissioned?

    Nothing yet so I don't think I will be getting one sadly.
  30. Well if you admins can't see a new account set up from the same IP address (I'm straying into tech terms that I don't understand !) I guess it's likely to be a case of RIP....not sure Moog could have pulled off RD's prose style over such a lomg period :). Mid 50s and was still actively flying to meetings so must have been an out of the blue heart-attack as I don't remember any plane crashes around that time (he spent half his time at airports !).

    Obviously we don't know for sure but that seems to be a very bleak assumption to come to.

    Plenty of regular users on here don't return for numerous reasons besides death: boredom, life changes, infighting, etc.

  32. Agreed but to go from regular 20 posts a day to zilch overnight with no argument, no "cheerio chaps", ....he's wiv da angles m8.
    We should arrange a socially distanced subbuteo game over zoom in support of his family.

    Where has Sting gone ? Tol Eressea ? Has not been around for a while.

    Haven't seen Moog on here for a couple of minutes. Has he changed his username?
  35. No. He’s dead m8. Wiv da angles.
