Hope everybody on here has a lovely Christmas.

We may not all get on, we may drive each other crazy at times, but ultimately we all have the best interests of the game at heart.

Lets look to 2013 with a sense of cautious optimism, and lets help make 2013 a year to remember, especially at the World Cup!

Eat, drink and be merry tomorrow with all your friends and family, and blow out those hangovers at a pre-season friendly, preferably wearing a novelty turkey hat.

All the best!!! :D

I'll second that. Have a great Christmas and the New Year would be perfect if we don't lose any more clubs, the new teams in our game are successful and survive in CC1 and ENGLAND WIN THE WORLD CUP and the tournament is a resounding sold out and ratings success both here and overseas.

Totally agree with the previous posts so best wishes to everyone over the festive season.

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

Yes, enjoy the festivities one and all, and have a great New Year. Probably my last pre-Christmas post, as I'm about to leave work. :D

Happy Christmas to all - 2013 could be epic. Here's to a wonderful World Cup year. I imagine many in here have had tough years, these are not easy days. May TGG give solace and joy to all.

2012 was an amazing British year of sport, and here's to 2013 being our own year of triumphs for the Greatest Game of all.

Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas - it's a double celebration for me as I proposed to my girlfriend last night and remarkably she said yes!

Off for a glass of champagne now!

Enjoy your day folks!

Came down this morning to find the new kitchen under an inch of water. Built in appliances so can't get at the pipes.

Ah well, water turned off and see if we can get the plumber back on Thursday. Dinner on but a bit behind. :-)

Merry Christmas one and all!

Annoying, confrontational, obtuse, creative, bl00dy-minded, argumentative, frustrating ....but that is enough about you lot!!! Remember this- whatever our views,however we feel, united by our love of the game, our similarities are far greater than our differences. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
