About the old posters thread further down. I think I was here from about 2004/ 2005. It was literally just 1 rumours page. There was Ngiak and his penguin. Rainfishtrombone/ iamkloot, Jono? Trumours? Few others I can't remember. I know we weren't so censored in those days. The Eds VAR system came into play and started reviewing posts more. :)

{Ed0666's Note - Our VAR system is no better than the real one

Not forgetting, Ports, Mort, Shappy, Sydney, Caolan, Betty Swollox, Chris the redman, some really optimistic poster called Zee, and anyone else I've forgot. When the pages started splitting there was a Liverpool poster called Blair Mayne? Used to come over and try and wind us up.

Supa,

There has been plenty of them over the years.

There was a point where people used to come on here just to ask Sydney stuff, he was the oracle and he was asked more questions than the Ed’s. It was a lot better once we got logins and usernames, previously it was open to a lot of trolling.

13 Jan 2022 07:05:52
Great to still see you here Supasub! Hope you’re well :) . It has changed dramatically, good memories :)

13 Jan 2022 07:56:41
Dont forget MAZE.

13 Jan 2022 09:41:45
Did the Beast get a mention?

13 Jan 2022 10:03:32
I might have been on longer than I think then. I was posting before the 2008 UCL success, maybe as far back as 2005 now I think about it. I used to have quite a few run ins with Blair Mayne, a Liverpool fan who said he was a billboard model ? proper wind up merchant.

This was all back when it was just the Football-rumours page. Jono and Betty were great posters who we don't see about any more. Honey Badger was another.

Lots of great posters over the years. Little disappointed I wasn't invited to the 20 year anniversary of the site last year. Shocking ?.

{Ed025's Note - we could not afford the ear muffs for all the other guests shappy mate.. :)

I looked back over old posts from 2012 and there are a bunch of names that no longer appear.

NoMidfield was there, he became Schmidfield, and the Attack Attack Attack. I can’t remember what he was called before NoMidfield though.

It was the Sydney show when I first joined, people asked him questions and he would provide his view, although often it was presented as fact. And then he disappeared.

And yes, there were some really questionable comments before the Ed’s decided to implement clear standards. I AM KLOOT was the worst, he was like the old bloke stood on the corner in his slippers shouting at the clouds.

13 Jan 2022 10:28:58
Who remembers Zee.

13 Jan 2022 11:03:55
Hey folks hope you're all keeping well. Some blasts from the past in these comments! Gan/ niak was one of my faves and the never ending Syd v Jred debates were entertaining. There was a seagull chap too from memory?

I don't post these days but still read at times. I'd estimate I was here since at least 2010 and used to post under 'Gav' before the sign in was introduced.

13 Jan 2022 11:04:06
Ive been following this aite since 2008 but never posted.

14 years later and the site is still going strong

?.

13 Jan 2022 11:16:36
I used to have plenty of discussion with Sydney when I first came on and recall REDFAITH as well who very occasionally pops up now.

I also remember Blair Mayne.

IAMKLOOT later RAINFISHTROMBONE was a tough uncompromising character who made plenty of comments on the owners but some were too much. I seem to recall KLOOT correctly predicted the Moyes arrival well before it happened.

I remember Zee, AJH.

13 Jan 2022 11:18:39
Good to see you're still about HB, I knew you posted under a different name before but couldn't remember it was Gav.

I remember the seagull guy, there was another guy lived in France who used to have a good grasp of the club who's name escapes me.

13 Jan 2022 12:01:26
Hey Shappy glad you're keeping well. Ah yes, I think his name started with M from memory? Something like Mike springs to mind but I'm unsure.

{Ed077's Note - Mike81 maybe?

13 Jan 2022 12:44:44
Anyone remember IRON MIKE from West Ham page? Shouted everything in capital letters! Think he then upset one of the Ed’s and disappeared!

13 Jan 2022 13:12:13
HB, you just jogged my memory, it was Mick.

13 Jan 2022 13:31:34
What was the name of the poster who constantly raved about up and coming younger players who we absolutely had to sign? If there was a random 17 year old who had just scored in the French 3rd division there would be a question about them the next day and how he was going to be an incredible player.

13 Jan 2022 13:31:49
That's it Shappy!

13 Jan 2022 14:04:06
RJ, that was Ronnie, I think Tielemans has a restraining order out on him.

I think he was just an enthusiastic fan who enjoyed seeing the club sign the likes of Rooney and Ronaldo as teenagers and just wanted to recapture that. As a result any teen who showed a glimpse of talent and he was all over them, and they became the "must" sign player that week, right up until a different teen scored the following weekend. He constantly asked Ed002 whether United was interested in an endless list of players, and to be fair the Ed's were really patient up to a point. In the end I think he served a few bans for constantly asking about players after being told not to.

Shame, as his heart was in the right place, his brain on the other seemed to be in several places all at once ?.

13 Jan 2022 17:05:58
That's the very guy, Shappy. Totally agree, he was super enthusiastic about Tielemans.

13 Jan 2022 19:36:08
Yes Trumours, good to see your name here, Sydney was posting almost as much as Shappys essays. Sydney disappeared a couple of times due to being put up in HMP I think. I think it was Sydney who said he was a Curtis Warren lookalike (notorious and still prisoned Liverpool drug lord), it could have been him for all I know. I'm guessing Sydney will be back at some point as I'm sure I saw his name come up a few weeks ago.

{Ed014's Note - wasn’t Sydney outed as being a Chelsea fan?

13 Jan 2022 22:03:10
Maybe, I'm not sure Ed. Surely he'd just be talking to himself replying to his own posts on that page.

14 Jan 2022 01:14:30
He posts every now and again Supa, I don’t think he’s in prison though!

{Ed0666's Note - can you use the internet in prison? I’ll ask Ed’s 001 he’ll know?

13 Jan 2022 23:08:38
I remember all these names. How long have i had a profile eds?

Also, special mention to Beast who was a top top poster.

{Ed033's Note - MancMan profile = 7 Jul 2017.

13 Jan 2022 23:36:05
And Ronnie.

16 Jan 2022 00:24:18
Manc man,

Are you beast? He was a negative moaner, repetitive and boring.
