Yeah, Arc can be blunt, but he has a point about people trying to change too much. We don’t need no sheriffs round here - however well meaning they are.
I think B55 is similar to me. Clearly neither of us like confrontation of any sort. Maybe we should both try to grow thicker skins if we want to enjoy the forum. Ho hum. Off to make my rounds. Going to the game tomorrow?

I agree totally and I've never 'sherriffed' or tried to 'police' one single post on here. I'm neither responsible or accountable for any peace that has been restored between members on here...they are.
All I did was remark on how much more pleasant it was to see threads full of interesting posts rather than insults and threats.
If that's a problem to some people on here then I'll stop such comments/observations but please don't anyone accuse me of trying to 'police' the forum or in any way 'correct' postings..that's utter bullshit.

How is it worse? I don’t care if he spends his days of retirement having a few bottles of wine daily but the constant sanctimonious holier than thou nonsense about forum peace is nauseating at best. This forum is different to others - so you either fit in or crack. But don’t try and change it to your particular liking
I'm not trying to change anything at all, my apologies if it came over that way. I've never once negatively commented on postings between 'feuding members' during 'c**t offs'.
I simply observed how some had buried the hatchet and what a difference it had made.
I'm certainly not 'holier than thou' and will stand my corner against anyone.
Hope that helps explain things :thumbup: I won't post about it anymore.

You’ll get accused of policing the forum if you tell someone to fuck off these days. I wouldn’t worry about it.

What really pissed me off the other night was how we made them look like Liverpool or Manchester City. They are shit, have been for 6 or 7 years yet we’ve still managed to lose 5 of our last 6 league games at Old Trafford. That’s with us having supposedly our best team since the 1960’s and they having their worst since they were relegated in mid 70’s. It’s nearly always same against Big Guns away, we’re beaten as soon we take the field. Under Pochettino, record in 28 away league games to Big 6 was W3 D9 L16.

You’d be hoping that’s something Mourinho can alter. Change mindset in these away matches and instill a bit of steeliness and backbone in them.

Seriously, you know you just apologised to someone who was trolling you.
He is exactly the type of poster who toilets this board and as a consequence is on a large number of ignore lists
