Any idea why imageshack pics don't work for me? All I'm seeing are frozen frogs.  ???
"What is a club in any case?
Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.
It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love." – Sir Bobby Robson

Tried to change my sig earlier and it accused me of hacking?!
Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name
And the corporate snakes coming in to feed
On that pathetic fact known as human greed
Skin and bone being raked over those hot coals
This dump never seems to give time for human soul

A bit of a controversial suggestion, but I reckon gifs should be banned from sigs and avatars, or at least images over a certain size. Its so annoying waiting for a page to load because theres about 10 gifs on it, especially if you're loading things in other tabs (i.e. video content etc on match days). People even have them in their sigs AND avatars, just ridiculous, there is nothing wrong with having a still image as an avatar.

Nothing wrong with you turning off avatars and sigs in your account settings either if it bothers you that much. Or getting a better connection, who the hell waits for anything to load these days? :lol: (If you're on a smart phone, just start using the WAP version of the forum instead of the full scale one.)

You'd (possibly) never have seen bouncing Scarlett if gifs were banned, think about that. THINK ABOUT THAT.



Matter of fact, time for a comeback tbh. At least until Decky the dial-up nazi gets his way. :huff:

Like Kaizero (or whoever it was) says, you can turn avatars and sigs off if you like.

I don't see any problem with them (and my connection is s***)

I live in the countryside. I also shouldnt have to hide ALL avatars because of a select few. Ive opted for the adblock option.

Past few days at random points, the forum's been slow to load for me; which is odd since other sites are working fine. Bizarre.

Sir John Hall: "I was told that the man behind the deal was Mike Ashley and I sat with his representatives over three days thrashing out a deal. I was keen to know why they wanted the club and they were quite honest. They wanted to market their sports goods in the Far East and would use the club to help do this."
