"I'm quite surprised to see you reply, normally you just post an inflammatory thread that you copy and pasted, claim it as your own and then never return to see if you have had a reply. Rude!"
First off, I do reply when one is warranted. I usually don't when it's just abusive rubbish (take a look at the other poster in this very thread)
Secondly, when I always cite my source(s) or include a link to the original article, so I'm not sure what the big deal is. This is a football message board and all football-related posts are usually based on some news or article somewhere. There is hardly an original idea posted here by anyone; if anyone here was capable of that, they'd actually be involved in the football industry in some way, not sitting around posting on a football message board. So when folks fling 'unoriginal' accusations at me, I choose to ignore it.
Lastly, whether or not a post is inflammatory is a matter of perception. If everyone just posted the same sort of tripe and everyone else just agreed, there'd hardly be any worthwhile discussion now, would there? Sometimes it's a matter of being able to see things from a different perspective, or sometimes I'm playing devil's advocate. Regardless, I will continue to post and ignore the profane posters and spammers. If there are decent debaters such as you, I'll gladly reply.
You will agree that Milan have pedigree and are a class above Spurs. Sub-standard as your hoof-it-and-chase league is, I do like your team, and wish you well. You are genuine and not pretenders like City, and hopefully, someday you will attain legendary status as Milan.
We play some superb football and although we may not have quite the same history as Milan do, we have a history and pedigree of playing good football. We cannot be accused of adopting the hoof-it-and-chase, style. Although I concede others in our league do.
You come across as an intelligent enough human being, surely you can concede that your initial post was highly likely to receive a reaction of this kind.
If I posted on a Milan page, that your current squad is a shadow of those in yesteryear, I'd expect to receive a few replies asking me to leave and never return.
I look forward to your future posts.
COYS!! - Good luck against the goons in Feb, If I remember rightly your lot have a few scores to settle in North London!
