The Official “What’s Your Favourite Classic Thread” Thread

Recommended Posts

Had a wee peruse of some of the Classic Threads earlier, just to cheer me up a bit and keep me from worrying endlessly about the C-word. 

Got me thinking which were the best ones? Must say that my top two are the (Vince) hilarious “Dion Dublin” thread by @oldstandrobin and the infamous “Hartlepool Trip” thread by @Never to the dark side  

OTIB at its absolute bonkers best. Guaranteed to cheer you up in dark times like this.

"is it me or is rouiger not on the game there is a anthony rouiger but no tony"

 

The Hartlepool thread is good but nothing beats the Rougier brothers.

Tony Rougier. By far.

Saw today that Brentford have a Joel Wollacott.  Now that would be a confusing signing.

Has to be either Steve Brooker and THAT fan of his, or Giles and Kelly! :D 
 

Although the one about me transferring to the “other lot” was pretty funny too!

My personal favourite was those five West Ham twatty kids who posted the picture of them trying to look hard with an assortment of rusty garden tools. The photoshopping people did to it had me in stitches.

Matty Taylor and NTTDS Hartlepool threads are my favourite.

Found this post in another thread in there, started by a Rovers fan ELEVEN years ago, the last sentence in particular made me laugh. How’s your predictions going Saghead?

I could read the NTTDS Hartlepool one over and over and over. Sheer bloody genius! 

It was surreal even by his standards.

I think there was a 'request stop' at Barrow Gurney at one point.

It's not filed in the Classic Thread section but my favourite I think was started by Dolly in memory of her friend's husband who had just passed away. Both were OTIB posters.

Basically, it was a thread where you could reveal your true self and not hide behind your moniker. There were a few who thought it wasn't a good idea to post for security issues. Within a few days, it was the no1 thread in popularity. However, once most had posted, it descended the charts and into oblivion.

I can't remember the thread title but I'd like to read the posts again especially as I've been on here a few years now.

It would be lovely to see it again and for others to add.

I’ve got a feeling that thread is how me and @CyderInACan became reacquainted with our cousin, @oldstandrobin As a result, our families have become much closer, we’ve shared a lot of memories......and might have had a few beers on more than one occasion!

Yes, a lot of people did open up big time and there was a lot of love and support from others - it made me feel quite proud to read some of the supportive and genuinely caring stuff on there and I like to think it might have helped a few folks going through dark times to know that there were many of us out there thinking of them.

Spot on Neil, families can split away dead easy for all sorts of reasons, in my case by moving for a few years to Spain but OTIB brought us back as a family. What a family. Dare I say BCFC's greatest set of supporters............................or do others know different ( I include in this Neil and Reg's Dad, Robert, our grand-dad Ivor, my dad , Alan, brother Steve, cousin Andrew, now sadly supporting Spurs) Some of us support the boys here, others from Heaven but common theme is that our xxxxxxxxxxxgranddad was a publican in Clifton and many descendants were Coopers in South Bristol. South Bristol we are. City we are. City till we die.

Not a thread as such, but in 2014 City played Telford in the cup. There was a Telford supporter who  was or, more probably, pretended to a woman and deliberately posted garbled messages in semi English. Can anyone remember who she / he was?

That was very surreal. IIRC other Telford fans were coming on the thread saying he/she did it on every team they played`s forums.

It was mostly about chips wasn`t it?

Absolutely spot on. I’m absolutely chuffed a big part of the family has found its way back together and the greatest compliment we can pay each other is that it’s like we’ve never been apart!

Did they go on about Food Vouchers too? Could have been @Bristol Rob 

Doesn't sound like me at all. What sort of fool would look to derail a perfectly sensible thread with talk of chips, food vouchers or personal account managers.

I remember him / her now.  He / she was AFCTERESA. A quick Google search will see him / her on lots of other teams forums

NTTDS has had some quite brilliant threads, photos of roundabouts and industrial estates at obscure away grounds, helpful travel advice, return trips to Newcastle.....without getting off the plane.

But my all time favourite story is of his well documented presence at the Sky Sports AGM each year, with even the broadsheets mentioning him in their write-up's. The whole meeting would kick off with James Murdoch wondering if NTTDS was there to ask why Bristol City weren't on Sky more often.

If Murdoch had read some of his threads on here there would surely be a Karl Pilkington type series for NTTDS on Sky.

Ironically in today’s modern world of online check in I reckon he could have actually achieved what he wanted to do now.

Really could do with some nominations of few extra topics to go in the classics 

Did the Nketiah thread make it?
