Great thread and completely agree with all the sentiments within.
I'm not a prolific poster and generally avoid posting too much in these sections as they get pretty swamped with opinions and usually someone covers what I was planning to say anyway.
But it's the bonus A&C content and management of those opinions that really deserves recognition here and despite being a long term member, i'm ashamed to say this window was the first in which I've donated, I now plan to do this more regularly because as far as i'm concerned, it's content i'd happily pay for and beats the shit out of skysports and the newspapers.
it's been an emotional, rollercoaster of a transfer window and the SC mods have done a great job keeping this site going in times of mass excitement and heavy usage.
with regards to A&C, normally I'd thank him and say what a great job he's done keeping us amused but after the tromboning lesson I had round his last night, well, quite frankly he's left a bad taste in my mouth...
Thanks to A&C (and his minions) for the unbiased refereeing you displayed during the opening hours of the daily ITK. It enabled the display of some (a lot of) very passionate football fans/supporters. It was highly entertaining and educational. I hope Mrs A&C has come to terms with the end of the TW, and looking forward to the highly deserved attention that is about to be lavished upon her. What are you going to do with all the tools of your trade now that The Daily ITK is going into hibernation?
Look forward to January with keen excitement and boyish AWE. Thanks a lot.
Ditto on the kudos to A&C et al on the support of the forums on the TW - keeping it sane but letting it get crazy too when it was required. Not sure how anyone kept sane when we have 7 top class players come in and the final amount for Bale was known Some of those days were a bit crazy!
Also a big shout out to Rob and the folks on the back end, for keeping the systems running during some of those peak hours when over 4000 people were online all shouting at once!
(Can't donate right now due to personal circumstances, but once that's sorted out I'll leave an envelope with some unmarked non-sequential currency outside Rob's door in a plain brown envelope at some point!)
I didnt like it.......I thought it was stuffy and had bad grammar. BUT! BUT! I will force myself back to moan and abuse next transfer window.
on a serious note as I said last night. stupendous work to all invloved well done SC. you are the soiled nappy of greatness, that is so full of pooey goodness you are currently squirting poo juice all over the new carpet! Hoorah!!! x
