First cab of the rank is...

Worst Poster
It's not a badge of honour and it was a fairly close race throughout but he broke through with some late votes. It's no secret that the recipient likes to get in a few online barneys with WealdstoneRaider, jd2010 and Bradesmaen being the most common stoushes. Funnily enough, only jd gave SM the vote for this with the other 3 coming from outsiders looking in to most of the arguments. The "winner" of this award is SM who should give up his day job and open one of these clinics ;).

Worst Thread:

Two years ago, this was voted the best thread but how times have changed. With shitfights galore that have often gotten toxic, the off-topic thread is a riches to rags story. Too often, the thread fills up with sewage resulting in clean-ups from chef and Ross (mainly chef) which diminishes what should be a thread where we can get away from the beautiful game and chat about films, television, music etc. but, when politics gets involved, the results aren't great.

The off-topic thread wins.


Final votes:
Off-topic - 6
Betting - 3

Owners - 1
Transfers - 1
You Have to Feel Sorry for Vincent Kompany - 1

Always said we need a politics thread on here. Or alternatively you could create a bookclub/Film/Boxset enthusiasts type of thread and leave the off topic for the hard stuff. Either way keep it separate so we don’t upset some people 👌

The echo chamber effect. People can’t handle dissenting voices anymore. See it on twitter all the time, surprised to see it on a message board to be honest. Usually people are a bit more robust on forums

But when has it ever stopped you posting stuff in that thread, the only time it ever gets shut down is when it gets personal. Which is the norm on all good forums.

I don't get why you wouldn't post this stuff in the appropriate boards if you feel that strongly about it.

But you're the one demanding separate threads for TV/movies to allow for a thread about the 'stronger stuff'. That suggests you're the one unhappy with the topics not the other way around?

Haha well yeah true you’re the dissenting voice on the spurs board, but you’re still welcome there. Wouldn’t be telling you to piss off and post somewhere else
If being the only levy fan or thinking everything is okay while everyone else disagrees bothers him he probably should consider a break from the thread tbh

What's wrong with an official Levy thread?

Worst Set of Supporters:

The title won't be the only award Liverpool wins, they also hold the honour of having the worst fans on this board. It was a landslide victory and even some of their own fans voted for them. That's when you know the goo-chugging is getting a little bit over the top, even if they are set to win their first title in over 30 years.

A fat, middle-aged Scouser wearing a khepresh is almost too embarrassing to make fun of. I didn't realise how far Jay Spearing had fallen. Let's just say this guy is the pharaoh of the Scousers.

Liverpool - 10
Tottenham - 4
Everton - 1

It's unfortunate, really.

It'd be nice if politics weren't discussed in that thread tbh.
