HI everyone, I was a member of The Concrete Roundabout and was surprised as anyone to see it shut down yesterday...on the very day we beat AFC too ! I have no idea the reasons why TCR has been taken down, but I am disappointed as it was a good forum to be on.

So I have joined this forum instead and look forward to being a contributor to it.

Cheers

And this is my other forum name so I can carry on arguing with myself.

Its great that you are doing this Sphere, but isn't it time we moved on from the club stealing please, rather than reinforcing it in the new title?


I have to agree with you on that, keep it in house as a laugh and a joke. other clubs fans will use it a stick to beat us etc.



Yeah, I agree, use something else sphere, let's not give anybody the ammunition to aim at us, what about something like The Concrete Dons

I learned all I know about football from TCR. I'm hoping this new place will be just as educational.

A brief update that I hope will be helpful.

Firstly, the new forum is now up and running with over 60 members joining in the first few hours which is great. Some very old MooCamp names re-appearing which should be interesting :lol:

In terms of TCR, I absolutely understand the frustration and, indeed share it. I came out of a work meeting to find TCR had been closed abs that was the first I'd even heard there any whiff of a problem. I had personally read over 350K posts doing my mod/admin duties.

As for the new name, I get the point about the past and I'm getting a bit of good natured flack abou it on there too. I think Dons does self- deprecation really well, so I like it. Besides Winkie was singing it last night :lol:

As for this forum, it is great to see members posting on here over the last few days. There is plenty of room for two successful forums . Good luck to us both - we might need it 8-)

Google search won't find it for a few days , so most have found it yet through TCR Twitter account. I am clearly happy to post a link on here, but not sure if that is acceptable or not so would prefer to wait for confirmation that this forum is ok with that.
