    I have to say, I loved @BurtonRam7 matchday plan too.
    No bravado, no BS, just a lad looking forward to possibly the best day of his life, and sharing it with family and friends.
    Even if it goes tits up, I get the feeling it's a day he'll remember forever regardless of result, because he's shared it with the people who matter, and made the time to make it that way.

    You're right about words just spilling onto the screen, rather than being the result of careful planning. I get that sense with your posts, especially your analogies, though they always remain eloquent. It's where my (slightly less eloquent) 'drunken' match reports come from but, to be honest, they're powered more by elation and passion than alcohol. The same goes for the post you mentioned about drinking plans - that was fuelled by the excitement of all my potential plans (travel, meeting points, etc.) coming together and I couldn't wait to share them. Most importantly of all, it's posts on threads such as this that benefit from such spontaneity.
    I really like the anonymity on here too and it only adds to what we've both talked about. It's why I don't really like it when people I know in person realise who I am. It's happened twice so far and I don't intend for it to happen again!
    Thanks for the best wishes.

    Ha! I'll take that!! 
    What I love about this forum is that it's not really had any bravado. There isn't people presenting the best version of themselves because its anonymous. The mods and David do such an excellent job that you can't shoot people down and bully them out the door
    So what we end up with is bit by bit, year by year, thanks to shitty football, people reveal themselves. Like the real them. 
    Once people start putting themselves out there and seeing it's not rejected they show a bit more and you end up with beautiful threads like this one. 
    I think I might be one of the many posters that spills nonsense from their brain onto these pages and I think others might see that as relatable even if they don't agree with me. 
    I get that feel from numerous posters. I love reading their absolute rubbish. Your post about your play off match day plans was one of them. No bravado... just you typing words as they come in your head. I can tell as I read it. It was more interesting than looking at Big Dave's amazing night out pictures of balls
    You don't get that on Facebook. Posts are planned mostly. Thought through for how others will read them. Like I am sure new posters do on here
    In time, on here, people talk poo. Protected by anonymity. And it becomes such a comfortable place. 
    I think people just relate to anyone who leaves a post unedited exactly as it left their brain. I do it all the time so that probably helps me get on with most people. Or I feel like I get on with most people. If I don't then that would be pretty gutting knowing short of seeing my face this is me! 
    Hope we win on Monday, mate. For many reasons but it's a wicked day you have lined up and I hope you can sink dark fruits with your nearest and dearest with a daft grin on your face!

    I don't even do Twitter or Facebook but I can see how they must kick people in the nuts. 
    I mean it's a bit like having relationship issues and every song on the radio seems relevant. Your brain seems to pick out things on social media and start reminding you that you don't have this or that. You're not that handsome, thin, tall, pretty. They're a better parent, they earn more money, they have a better career, a nicer car, more friends. 
    It's like holding a mirror up to your life when you're not in the right place mentally. Looking how much of a feck up you've made. When you view it then it's a mirror.
    Yet when you post on it then suddenly it's a sales pitch. I'm super good looking, drive this car, look at my beautiful kids, look at me in the sun, look at my living room. Obviously not everyone is out there to boast. But we like to present the best "me" to the world. And it gets competitive between a lot of insecure people which leads to more insecure people. 
    Facebook isn't really reality. Reality TV isn't reality. But anything that offers security or insecurity sells. A lot of people are looking for comfort or are in competition. 
    I think as soon as you accept that your poo stinks and your best is good enough that you can live happily ever after. But even being aware of what social media is like doesn't help. Even not using it at all isn't protection. Our brains are all warped with mental images of the people we should be. Even if it's not jealousy of Dave and his new Range Rover it might be that your brain is showing you a better version of yourself. 
    But when you are on your arse and still looking at the perfect world of everyone else... that is a kick in the nuts. If you think it might not be helpful, log out

    This thread should be for anybody who needs to empty their brains. It doesn't matter imo what makes sense or anything like that. If its hurting then let it all fall out in here and maybe  someone can help pick up the pieces.
    What would be terrible is anyone reading this thread thinking "well compared to that my problems don't seem so bad" and keeping it to themselves. 
    Anyone who's on their arse should post in here. It doesn't matter if you have a "valid" reason or if it fits in. Sometimes people fall on their arse and getting back up is that bit that matters. Doesn't matter who had the biggest fall. 
    I can't offer you much, bro. Other than my best wishes. I know feck all about people passing away. I know that life likes to punch you sometimes and you don't always see a way to ride the shots. But if you do keep rolling on then eventually it gets lost and punches someone else. That's one thing that applies to anyone in this thread with whatever issues. You just keep hanging in there and you'll pick up a win. Easier said than done but experiences teaches us it's true.

    @rynny,
    What i've noticed about this place is it's got a solid core of people who are liked and respected by others, no matter what views they have they're able to come through the other side and still be liked, still be cared about. You're right at the top of that tree. You've earned that over years. Sounds a bit cheesy but I'm really glad you felt this is the place you felt comfortable sharing. I'm sure you knew the kind of reaction you'd get pal. One of universal support and rightly so.
    You're a good lad and people don't like to see good lads having a hard time of it. No words can be right when you lose a family member. None. There is no feeling like it in the world. All you can do is keep breathing and keep smiling at the good memories and know that at some point you'll feel like you've been hit with a hammer as you cry for the same reason you smiled.
    Stay strong pal. I know for a fact the offers of support/beers/chats from your fellow DCFC members is genuine. Don't be afraid to accept one or two of them. All the best.
    Craig.

    To be fair, nigel Clough turned down forest to stay at Burton due to the sea of puss the club was when he was offered it, and that's arguably as hard for him as for Lampard and Chelsea.

    I just have a little feeling that we may be underestimating how much frank is enjoying his time with us and the bond he is building , yes I know Chelsea at some point because of his history there and the finances ( not at the mo though?) but given the Chelsea job tends to be a shortish gig even when successful I think he may be sharp enough to want his time there to be under better circumstances

    I was still pissed this morning, bounced into work in Nottingham (via Uber) with Oasis and Doris Day as earworms, then produced the most amazing work throughout the morning, if I do say so myself.
    Started feeling a little less lively approaching lunch, and decided an all day breakfast tray from the local cafe would sort me out.
    Big mistake, my body obviously wasn't prepared for solids after 24hrs of liquid only intake, and it went through me like an Irish centre half goes through the Leeds midfield.
    Only just managed to hold it together until the end of lunch break, after all I'm not going to the toilet without being paid for it, battled through another hour then clocked out and went home to bed!
    I don't think my Forest supporting boss was too impressed, but seeing as he'd sent me a message last night at 10pm telling me not to drink too much because I had a big job on next morning, I think I showed remarkable professionalism in the circumstances.
    Well done, hope you smashed it. Youth is wasted on the young.
