And there's also a catch question, a bit like in the Great Escape where the German Officer says to Gordon Jackson "Good Luck" as he steps on the bus and Jackson replies in English  "Thank You - Oops"......

Once a candidate passes the 'Yma o Hyd' test, I chant 'Ole Ole Ole Ole' and if the candidate is caught off guard and accidentally responds with 'Ospreys Ospreys', the interview is cut dead there and then. Smile

Well done everyone.   The forum has helped galvanise support, organise meet up points on away trips ,and it's helped me meet a lot of supporters over the years.   It's provided a lot of information and a lot of daft rumours too!!!! All in all though it's been great.Ymlaen y Scarlets

A free spirit of unsubstantiated fact, bias, banter and general drivel. Some brilliant characters and threads over the years. Was also a brutal place at times for those two eyed folk or supporters of other clubs who dared to post. 

I’ll raise a glass of shant for Fever’s milestone..

After reading today’s posts, I reflect on just how much the forum has helped cement my initial enjoyment at following Scarlets. 

Without it, we wouldn’t have become sponsors. Nor would we have met so many really nice folk, corresponded but never yet met many others. It was a notable highlight to meet Lofty this season. Can’t remember if we won or lost. I think it was Toulon at home 😭. Nonetheless, the social side was so much more important. There are pros and then there is prose, the like of Lofty’s is rarely equalled.

Another highlight was meeting a, now rocking-horse-poo-rare, poster on here for breakfast at Stansted ahead of an early morning flight to Shannon and a Munster match. We also dropped him off at his hotel before we collectively (those there and those suffering on TV) watched us get no rub of the green from a famous personality and not win.

Bumping into Mr Ian and his wife and very newly arrived baby at Treviso was a brief, surprise, moment.

Following Scarlets lead to attending the European finals, which has lead to us meeting random Clermont fans, one of whom owns a cave at Issoire that specialises in champagne, which we’ve visited and sampled. Walking from the restaurant at Twickenham, where we met, I was carrying a massive ASMCA flag. Some guys from Norfolk started chatting and in my dumbed down Franglais managed to string them along for a while before they asked where we were from. It took a while before they registered the location of Eeeepppssswich. The reaction was priceless and they loved the irony.

Other Clermontois, in Edinburgh, were equally great company, if not in the wine trade.

There are so many stories that bring so many smiles. It’s now only occasions like this that make you step back and reflect. 

Our distance from PyS limits the number of trips we can make so have missed many an end of season, pre season, mid season, meet the new players etc etc event.

This forum brings much that we miss to life. It’s an essential service. The further away your are, the more essential it is.

Looking ahead, there are plenty of folk I’ve yet to meet. I’d love to see the return of some absentee sensible, well-reasoned, knowledgeable posters.

Here’s to the continued success of the forum and we can all aspire to that coinciding with stylish success on the pitch and financial good news off it.

Irrespective of future results, it’s a superb community and reflects much of real life. There are things you wish you could block. Posters whose opinions you believe are best ignored. Yet, among the chaff, there is plenty of wheat. May we look forward to an era of more tolerance of opposite opinions, an ability of people to listen and process the info. 

While some of us will never meet, at least we are all aiming in the same direction. 

Long may it be so.

This forum has been a big part of my life and meeting loads of posters on away trips has been some fantastic memories. Although some are a bit hard to remember I must admit... 
End the lies.

In line with good HR practices, I gave the job to the best candidate mind.


Cracking stuff.

And for the avoidance of any doubt, the Scarlets fan was the best candidate. Smile

Top of my head, Haydn’s conservatory most funny and random thread and Brian O’Driscoll to the Scarlets amongst my favourites too. I’m pretty near the top of posters that talk the most poo too.

Thanks, Postcode, for bringing back the legendary Haydn’s conservatory thread. 

It was before my time so I never really caught up with the full thread. It just existed as stuff of near legend.

I was a great fan of Bristow, by Dickens, in the London Evening Standard. The Great Tea Trolley Disaster of (some year or other) was often referred to but nobody, amongst the fans I knew, had ever read about it. For us, it was a legend. I’ve not googled it since, either. Maybe I should.

Never realised this was turned into a radio series with serious actors. Rodney Bewes, Dora O’Bryan and Michael Williams as the title character.

It’s on iplayer although the earliest episode only has a day or two left on it. 

While we’ve a bit more spare time, I’d recommend it more than in normal times.

Even in normal times, I’d still recommend it.

Just wanted to say thanks to all the regulars, occasionals, lurkers and even trolls for their contributions over the years.
