So the Mods are leaving, this place is gonna be a war zone soon WOOHOOO :P
Let's crash Footytube then leave!
The Cloudst and Zilch era has ended :(
Off to my first round of footgolf for the season!
Max Kruse joins Wolfsburg and BMG sign Drmic to replace him
I know this a weird timing and I've said this before but morally staying on this site sickens me. My love for footytube is the conversations and the users on the site but I've just discovered a very big conspiracy that is involved with the site owners of this site. Basically footytube was on the verge of a downturn before 2013 and after a few mods stepped down I was chosen to be a mod. Afterwards we got some great people on board to try and make this site a better place by spreading it around and creating a place that was bearable for all users on this site. What happened was an influx of popularity from the promotion of podcasts and just spreading in general to other places rather than the UK. Well it worked and the site was creating a healthy dosage of money that is able to fund the improvement of this site. But that is not what happened. Instead the owners decided to enjoy the profits and eat it while we the mods pick up the pieces of whatever is left of the site. No improvements, not a single word from the higher ups. We haven't spoken to an owner or Matt in months and when we do find them, they're busy. Busy enjoying the cash flow that we the users provided them but they refuse to provide us back. As a mod we invested tireless hours trying to keep everything in check while making this site enjoyable for you guys, that was the goal but the owners they're only after what you want to view to keep their healthy flow of money streaming through. Obviously everyone needs an income but they're income is well beyond what people assume and they can easily improve this site but they won't. They're content to sit on their porches or lay on the beach eating the money we're giving them with no improvements whatsoever. I've tried my hardest to give it all for this site but now it's all gone to far.

I've said good bye before as I was getting fed up of everything but being used and not seeing a dime for something I was never paid to do and never seeing this grow and prosper like we were promised is the last straw.

I apologize for this rant maybe some mod will clean this up but currently it is a sin for me to even on this site. I take my farewell take care everyone.

And now your watch has ended. so long Cloudst, Footytube wont be the same without you. :(

Cloudst... dont man, u going will be heartwrenching to every community here cuz we love you...
+1
Cloudst it's been an absolute pleasure talking with you and I really hope (rather selfishly) that you somehow end up staying on the site because this forum will be losing a huge member who made this site what it is today. I respect your decision to leave and hope that you will occasionally drop to say hello to everyone on the forum.

Cheers mate

(bursts into tears)

sorry to hear that Cloudst. Thanks for all the efforts you've spent to make FT a better place. ;)
for footytube *takes a stab*
that sucks....
Hei we have to do something about this!

Clouds are you alone in this?
Well I may as well tell you that I've left as well. This will be my last post. I'd already decided to leave for various reasons before we discovered this so I had already told the other mods I'd quit. But after finding this I've also told the owners what I think of them so there's a chance I'll be banned, if they ever bother to check the site that is. Which is my main reason for leaving, the sheer lack of caring from the admins of the site. That and the fact I can no longer enjoy a meaningful conversation on here with rival fans and I have to concentrate more on my studies.

Farewell to you all, good luck for all your future endeavors. It's been fun while it lasted but there's just none of the old members left anymore that made this site enjoyable for me ie Threk, Magneto, BarcaShow, Jetlifari, Wearethearsenal, Invincibles etc and many many others. Assuming my account isn't banned, feel free to post on my wall and I will receive the email notification to check it. There are still some top users on here, how long they will put up with this lack of development I don't know but I've had enough. Stagefright, OMGOzil, Skool, GSS, Malik, Ayyam, Raj, Aaron, Jeroen, SiF, Cheshire, 13goals, Deffyduck, Bluffmaster, Xgooner, Teja, LastGraspWinner, all the mods and everyone else who I haven't mentioned, I wish you all the best in life.

There's some transfer news from a reliable source for a change: Cloudst and Zilch on a free transfer from FootyTube to freedom.

P.S. Deffyduck: I nominated you to take over my mod position. That is, if you want it and the other mods approve my nomination. Sorry 13goals, you rage too much during live matches but I still love ya mate :D

End of days
Cloudst and Zilch,

Thanks for all you guys have done for this site and it's users! This is my #1 football site to go to for general football knowledge and keeping in the loop on all events. It's shitty to hear that while we've enjoyed the fruits of your labor, you however have not. Come back on to stir the pot up before the Community shield would ya?!!!
+1
Zilch i learned so much from you regarding tactics and football in general, I really appreciate all the hard work you and Cloudst did to make this site an enjoyable place. I have to say this is a sad moment for me because you are the type of user who made me sign up to this site in the first place.

Cheers

P.S. I was wondering if you write on any other football sites/blogs, perhaps someday the Footytube family can be reunited :)
+1
wtf is this April fools???
I hope you're both still lurking to see the replies for a little longer.

It would be great to have some sort of external outlet - for example, a facebook group - to keep in touch and discuss transfers, tactics, match days and all the rest.
Shaymoose, thankyou, not sure if I'll ever be back pretty unlikely. GSS I believe I've made my thoughts in the mod forum pretty clear, no joke I'm afraid mate but you can always reach me on Facebook, email etc. OMGOzil: yeh we did do a lot of work to generate interest for the site, too bad none of it was used to improve the site for the users. Wouldn't consider doing Podcasts etc until completion of my studies which is another 2.5 yrs.
Deffy you can always get me on Facebook, rather than just blurt it out, email me at zilchyb0y@hotmail.com and when I wake up I'll email you my facebook details. I chat to Cloudst every day. You are my first choice nomination for a new Arsenal mod.
I like Deffy's idea of a Facebook group or maybe a messaging app or something?
Got to bw honest, Cloudst and Zilch made me a better football thinker/tactician amd the way to see things. Thank u for everything fellas!

There's always Skype. You're welcome Aaron, you're a good mate.
OK guys. After the confirmation of Zilch and Cloudst. I've decided to hang up my boots as well.

No longer will I play local football as I intend to pick up the pieces where these two LEGENDS left off.

It will be difficult to fill a huge vacuum that these guys left but I'll try my best to not replicate but dedicate.

I'll miss the ban hammer of Zilch and the 100% accuracy of Cloudst's transfer predictions. I've been on the site for a few years now and call you all my extended family. I'm really here for the love but I totally understand and respect these gentlemen's legitimate concerns. They've worked tirelessly around the clock just to keep it clean and that's something I admire as it's not easy doing so behind the scenes.

I'll make sure to keep in touch with Zilch and Cloudst.

Thank you for everything, Zilch and Cloudst. Aaron is over 9000% correct, you guys have made me (and many other users) more knowledgeable about football, and a better football fan overall. Without you guys, I am considering not visiting anymore, even Magneto has exiled himself to small discussions in the Spurs forum.

idk if anyone remembers but I used to be a troll, I was called Piryavrat0123's brother. From there, to what I am today, is because of users like you all. Thank you very much again, things won't be the same anymore.

P.S. No homo Zilch. Consider it a tribute :)

Edit: GSS.. I don't think we've ever spoken, but I've read you and you're as classy a person as anyone else. Cheers, man

Anyone feel like making a Facebook group if no one else does I might
it's official footytube is DEAD :(

Dang.Were they any perks promised when you sign up to be a moderator ?
I don't know how much are the owners at fault other than maybe negligence from what I read so far.
Well this place definitely won't be the same.

Thanks Cloudst and Zilch for everything. It sucks that it had to end like this.
switch over to r/gunners. Thats where I've been lately...
It's a real shame something like this happened.

Well all I can do is thank you guys, I've never been a mod but I can imagine the time and energy spent putting out fires and trying to remain neutral with fans and apparently dealing with terrible site admins..all on top of the good knowledge and debates you guys have dropped across the forums to make us all better fans of the game.

You lads will be missed, but hopefully we do see some major improvements on this site and a way back for you lads. Until then, cheers!
Sad stuff.

This site, despite it's flaws and decline over the years has helped me get through some tough times in my life. The last few years have been the lowest points of my life brought about by my arrogance, drug abuse and just overall bad decision making. During this time I became anti-social and lost most of my friends and I would spend most of my days indoors avoiding people in general.

But no matter what I could come here to these forums and have discussions, banter, vent frustrations, express joy and other forms of interaction with people from around the world who had the same love for football that I do, and this helped a lot.

Other than all the football knowledge that I have acquired during my time on these forums, I have picked up some other qualities from members. Some made me think about manners and how important it is to be respectful towards others. While others showed me not to take life too seriously.

My life has recently changed for the better and all the members of this footy community have my thanks.

Football has the ability to bring people together from all over the world and this community is proof of that fact. Despite all this, it is sad to read what Cloudst has written and that things turned out this way.

Cloudst and Zilch, thanks for all your hard work in making these forums enjoyable and accessible for so many people around the world. Cheers.

Classy from Sporting. Even though marketing motive is involved, still a nice gesture. :)

I read on other new ronaldo bought him a house
"Aaron Ramsey - Passing Compilation" video made me realized how good of a passer he is, he's 23? wow.
+1
Ok, where's the video link?
compilation can make anyone look good....ramsey is more than a decent passer of the ball but that's also one of his weak points....
+5
its on this page ^^ lol


@Gunners true, but sometimes you forget players' distributions, it's a great video to remind us his talent and things that he had overcome to be who he is today, especially after a broken leg. He still has more years to improve his game, same goes to Wilshere. If they can stay injury free, they will dominate oppositions.
Yup, agreed with Gunners4mylifeh. He's a decent passer of the ball whenever Wenger lets him play in the b2b role or as a CDM sometimes but he can get better at that of course if he stays fit for at least 2 successive seasons. I think his strength is more in the goal scoring dept. tho
I started to watch it but then all it was was passing...lol
to be fair the clue is in the name lol
