Don't think he'd mind me saying but yeah, BC is gone (for now) for those wondering. He had some legitimate grievances imho, he didn't exactly have a rant or stage a coup as has been rumoured, but he did say some unwise things in an unwise tone and what happened seemed pretty inevitable.

Not sure if he will be back, but would be a loss to the forum.

I reckon Eric Dier found out who BC was & has ironed him out :cautious:
Joke aside, BC is the only poster I've blocked on this site & I've been on here for years. You think about some of the complete & utter cock wombles on here & BC was the only one I've ever blocked . Scenes

BC having a moan. What a surprise. Did he call Rob 'about as useful as a turtle in a windsock' by any chance? A&C a 'busy little shit'? Well, at least Dier and Alli will play better this season when they no doubt come on here after matches and don't see themselves being ripped to pieces in the match ratings.

I'm still pretty sure the main reason Walker left was that he told Poch 'I'm just sick of that Bus Conductor guy giving me shit in every, single match rating thread, gaffer. It's time for a change, I need a fresh start.'

I notice Rob hasn't dipped into the transfer market to replace these experienced posters. Does this give us an opportunity to promote some new young SC members and allow them some more posting time? I wouldn't necessarily throw them all in at once but a chance in some minor threads would be good for their forum development.
Time for Bus Conductor-Peters to step up

He is an opinionated mofo but an open book. Neither a sheep nor a protagonist but a regular poster with his own slant. I hope he comes back if only to giggle at the ranting as Poch turns kwp into a left back.

He's permanently banned so can't come back. He's sounds like he is happy at TFC anyway, so I don't think he would come back even if he could.

could be wrong but think he was banned for posting youth itk in here ..
Someone else on TFC got banned for posting youth ITK in this thread in last month or so, so you could be thinking of them, unless they both got banned for the same reason.

i don't know about the other poster but windy posted some youth-related itk in here(well, his own take on some itk) and then the thread was locked. maybe he did something else after that, i don't know, but he was banned the same day. it was one of the reasons why BC went on a rant (in a private message which was then leaked by one of those he sent it to).

Sadly not. Your stuck with an average Frenchman instead 😁

Each to their own but I found BC one of the few shining lights of sense on here in an increasingly muddled mix, an established voice in a sea of new faces. That anyone would block someone for having a usually well argued opinion... well... I can only assume there was some kind of subtext. I don’t believe in blocking in general, I think you should be open to your opinion being challenged.

As others have said, he wasn’t a troll, he was a fairly pragmatic poster, certainly in Spurs Chat which is the main place I frequent, who gave balance to things and genuinely considered, interesting analysis. I think to counter your comment, I think I’ve agreed with him more than any other poster.

But if he’s broken the rules, or crossed a line, it is what it is I guess. It’s Rob’s forum, he decides how it’s run. The posters I identify with are becoming thin on the ground tho, either left, banned or rarely post anymore. A forum is only as good as its posters and BC was certainly one of the better ones. Almost like a WWF heel going to WCW him off to TFC

As someone who’s been on here nearly 15 years, it all feels a bit Brexity, getting on with things while not really recognising where you’re living anymore.

But anyway, back to the yoof... the players and the posters

Some exciting weeks ahead for some of the youth players, shame Onomah hasn’t had a good run in pre-season due to fitness but I’m still a fairly big believer in him.

When it comes to youth players, I think they up their level when surrounded by better players: Sterling will get better service, TOB better defensive cover, Skipp more forward passing options, so I can see them doing better than some expect in one off games and matches. Consistency is something else that may or may not come in time

Appreciated BC's contributions. Often tried to support hiss opinions with stats rather than just 'I see it this way.'

Can't believe the stuff about Windy, honsetly peeved if he got banned for that.

Exciting times for our youth, Winks taking 8 is a big deal to me, as well as KWP in 16. I probably care too much about shirt numbers though.

I couldn’t take his anti Dier agenda anymore, found it draining & this thread suddenly became a much better place through blocking him. Like I said he’s the only one I’ve had to do that to
