    Good luck mate.

    A shame, as I understand French people are having no bother remaing here if they wish, as many have done. They need to have been here before Jan this year I think and to apply for some sort pre- settlement scheme, but basically, if you were here you can stay.

    Thanks for all the messages which are truly appreciated, they've really moved me and will make this move just a little easier.

    This forum has become too divisive for me and there are people, like @Makemstine Roger who only want the board to function if they can have all their little pals and make it just like it was when there was only them posting. They have little real interest in football, or SAFC, but just want a forum where they can form a circle and pat each other's backs. @brb is just 'another of the lads' who has his little favourites who can do no wrong, fair enough.
    They want things to go back to 'the good old days' when their little clique ruled the board and everyone else was shouted down.

    They obviously hate the new people who've recently arrived and couldn't care less who the 'old guard' are. The people who believe they kept the board 'buzzing' even though there were only a dozen of the sad old knackers posting about their army days and how many women they've shagged.

    OK lads, it's all yours ...

    ... entertain yourselves even if it kills the forum and you're left with no one to talk to but yourselves, just like it used to be.

    Not at all, I'm being honest and saying what I think.

    The rest is quite correct, I have a major move from one country to another, one job to another and one home to another ...

    ... takes a bit of doing.

    but still find time to try and stir up a **** storm, you have never been honest yet on this board how many people have left within the last year because of you, even the board owner and chief mod told you to wind your neck in

    One
    One of the biggest problems with the board is the unnecessary bile and arguments and funnily enough you seemed to be involved in 90% of them so that tells you something

    It means he must be fast asleep when the other 10% are kicking off.

    Money where you mouth is.

    "I've had no communication, either on or off the board, from any Mod. I've not mentioned my 'Brexit' thread to any Mod or any other poster.

    I haven't asked for anyone to be banned or asked for any comments to be deleted, not one.

    If you have the proof that's untrue post it up and I'll send £1000 to any charity you care to name."

    Best of luck with it Smug.

    I'm interested as to the actual difficulties you were having. The UK seems to be bending over backwards to help people stay here, are France just abandoning Brits?

    After discussion, Smug probably won't reply to this because it's been decided by us mods that he's to have a break from here and he'll not be back until May 14th.

    He's a very valuable member that stimulates the board quite a lot, usually in a very positive way, so it'll be a lot quieter, but we feel that this gives a chance for 'things' to calm down <ok>

    He's going to be busy with a return to blighty anyway, so this will probably be good for him.
