So what were you doing just over 10 years ago?

Recommended Posts

My son's birthday is 26 July so 10 years ago I would have been helping him celebrate his 13th birthday - I can't remember what he did that year but it may have been a mass camping in the garden with his friends.  

 

Looks like I joined a year later - membership number 1143.  I don't think I posted for ages though - is there any way of seeing what/when my first posts were?  I do remember being very nervous and being reassured and welcomed by Moi - whom I have subsequently had the pleasure of meeting - as well as Charles Ryder, Yorkley Blue, Geezer and Noseatingintheshedinmyday (I think that was her user name - she sadly doesn't post any more) - are there any others I've missed?  I will no doubt manage to meet up with Jezza on the fun bus some day!

I was never part of the old CSR, ten years ago I had never heard of this site. I've got no idea of my original membership number, but I think I first registered sometime during early 2007.

 

Ten years ago today, I was celebrating my fiftieth birthday.

So now you know.

Ah the old csr...a classic forum and I was gutted when it shut out of nowhere...thankfully some of the old guard weren't lost for good and made it here...

In 10 years, a lot has happened in my personal life...more importantly I have seen cfc win two titles, four fa cups, one league cup, one Europa league and of course the champions league...wahey!

10 years ago I thought Pauly was cool and Butch was 100% right about Adriano.

:/

I remember being on the CSR site mostly watching people disagree with Kenn while procrastinating studying. Still, I found the site infinitely better than the totalitarian state that was CFCNet at the time!

Do you mean when they had that rule that all posts had to be authorised by the admin/mods before it got put on the boards ? that was awful.

That's exactly how I ended up stumbling here! I was like f**kkk that!

    • Remember Batshuayi steps up in the Champs League too, he can beat Atletico!
    • You may be right about that Mod. It was the Batshuayi comparison that felt bizarre. Good to see you posting.
    • STEVEN GERARD GERARD  HE FELL ON HIS f**kING ARSE HE GAVE IT TO DEMBA BA STEVEN GERARD GERARD
    • That's the thing though Davey, it's easy to forget about the player once they've moved on (or it went sour with the club) in which, I think most are doing with Costa. How many games did Costa step up when we needed him, and win the game like Morata vs Utd. I'm not taking shots at Morata, I like him and hope he becomes a striker that is up there every season for us, but for me, at the moment, he isn't as reliable or confident in front of goal as Costa was for us, not by some stretch. Yes I saw the same yesterday in the champions league 
    •   Bizarre. Costa started like a house on fire for us but I wonder if he had as many goals for us after as many games, remembering that Morata has missed a few with injury. Morata's been brilliant and I just can't understand your comparison with Batshuayi, who has no idea how to play up front on his own, although he will score goals. Batshuayi is just a very limited footballer and it's clear Conte doesn't trust him.   Morata is better in the air than Costa, by far, he's faster, his link-up play is better, he's more skilful, and he'll get more goals. He'll easily surpass Costa's 20 if he stays fit, because although he misses chances, he also puts them away, and crucially the chances keep coming his way, because his movement and positioning is so good. All strikers miss chances. Morata is scoring crucial goals, big goals in big games, winners, opening goals. Costa invariably went missing in big games. Lest we forget, in both our title winning seasons of late, Costa faded badly in the latter half, when the pressure was on. It was Hazard that drove us over the line on both occasions.   Given the choice, I don't see too many people taking Costa over Morata right now, and as for Batshuayi, he's at least one tier below them two in my opinion. I'm not saying there aren't better than Morata out there, but I don't think we could have done much better, given the options. He's been as good as any of us could have expected, and his goal against Utd was simply a great header. When we needed him he produced. He was absolutely brilliant that day.   He gets injured and we're relying on Batshuayi our season takes a very different course in my opinion.
