I’m usually quite patient when this happens, it is what it is - it’s just an Internet forum after all but it does happen far too often and for too long. Especially annoying this week with the transfer window open and the lead-up to weekend games. Started looking for alternatives pending the inevitable death of this place.

Just glad I don’t pay to advertise on here.

Found any alternatives mate?

They’ve actually censorsed the ‘other place’ out to make it say one football forum.

You do realise this site is losing posters to 1FF? When this site is down there is no information on how long this site is down for or why. Try putting the info on social media so at least we know what is happening.

We really aren't, it's a crock of shite over there.
1FF Active Right Now: Total: 234 (members: 49, guests: 109,
1FF Active Right Now: Total: 392 (members: 91, guests: 301)
We could disappear for a year and still have more people hit the site on day 1 of our return.

Site repairs and announcements are made as soon as I'm available. For the last few days I haven't been; other work priorities go ahead of this frankly, that's the truth even if it doesn't come across well.

Welcome back chaps, I don't anticipate any recurring problems.

Whenever I am made aware of issues I look to resolve ASAP, but ultimately I have day to day running tasks for other businesses which are more pressing. I don't personally have access to any of the social accounts anymore, either.

Hopefully the site will return to stability again now. If it doesn't, I'll continue to work on the issues as and when I have the time.

1FF is so much better. No ads and more active.
And it doesn’t go down every month.

Nothing there for the lower leagues. But the Premier League section is 1000x better than the one on here and the Championship one is probably about the same.

Surely the logical option would be to hand the forum over to someone who cares more?

All these ads and performance issues and we still outperform them by more 30% on sheer numbers. That's a pretty weird stat!

It's a business first. You don't just 'hand over' a business. Jesus christ.

tl;dr; The site is back online. If you want to visit, then visit. If you don't want too, don't type us in.

Leagues 1,2 and non league are dead on there,i support a team that will never get higher than League 1 so this is more interesting for me, i do enjoy the crack on 1FF as i've been posting on there for about 7 years and there are some decent people on there tbf
