Nothing to do with the fact that you JUST happen to have 920, then, Plum ?

er .............................. no! The element of quality rather than quantity should prevail, I think, Mr Plum! And, as your father says, spelling does count.

I'm sure that the champagne would suffice.......

You lot are just "post-whores".............And, what's more, I know all you'll do is register under a false name etc. etc. and try to claim it!

Simon and I agreed last year that if we reached 500 users (out of approx 7000 to 8000 Old Blues) then the forum would be deemed a success......

So, don't stop joining up - otherwise I'll just switch it off (and J.R. will have to go back to the gardening-leave)!

HOW VERY DARE YOU, JULIAN !!

(Don't you just LOVE Catherine Tate ??)

I resent the word POST.

Whore is good, but POST-WHORE !

Well really. Any more of this, and I will have no option to break into my Catherine Tate 'Gran' routine !
