Do none of you actually know each other, then? We've had open invite meets through the two City forums I've used and I've also made new Blue friends through Twitter.

And none of you want to meet me? Fine! I'll drink alone as usual.

I'll drink with anyone as long as they're buying.

The KUMB January 2020 piss up.

Think Richey Riv would be interesting to have one with too,
I'd happily buy you a light ale.

What I've found over the years is that the online persona is nowhere near the reality (in a good way). I've had a few pints with Chalks, the gaffer, Rio (and Rio B), Trifecta, Sicknote and Bonehead. This was generally in the days of the saloon bar in the Wakefield. or the odd occasion in Cardiff.

One of our lot, who doesn't post anymore but who is a real gem, said to me that he thought I'd be funnier than I was.

I obviously took that to mean that I'm a boring cunit.

Same for having a pint as well.

I've had a pint with a few, Clackers being the weirdest though.
Never shared a pint, mind you, always made them get their own

Some of my best West Ham memories are The Wakefield related. None of them has anything to do with football mind you, just the epitome of our club and its support.

Met some absolute blinding people at the Wakefield. People like "Pete the spliff" who used to get cans from the offy opposite but stand outside the pub, beer in one hand, bifta in the other.

The old bill confiscating our football when we brought Kathrine Road to a standstill last day of the season.

The first season in the Championship and the fixture against Cardiff. Some of our chaps used it as their meeting point and the old bill had obviously been tipped off. They surrounded the entire pub and told anyone entering that they wouldn't be allowed to leave. It was probably the most crowded pub I have ever been in (and the hottest). In the end the OB relented but decided to Section 60 everyone coming out of the pub.

Being the last punters in there at 2am and Jat bribing us to leave with a few bottles of Becks

I've had a pint (or three) with Romford one evening - lovely fellah!

Other than that you are all highly entertaining, but entirely virtual, living as we do in that shared twilight world of hope/desperation that is WHU.

Meeting any of you might make it real . . . and that may lead to psychological issues and/or alcoholism :wink:

That day was interesting, not least when someone tried to set the curtains alight in the small bar to try and get us out of the pub quickly.

Christ, people I probably owe a pint from here would leave me skint:

DL, Pinky, SH, Mushy, Tenbury, Cuenca, TOMOS, Last caress, Samba, UTJ, Sicknote, Gnome, Chalks, Samba and Rio.

Happy to share a pint with anyone but the above have all been good to me.

Missed out on a pint with Romford twice. First time before a Man Utd game at the boleyn due to a late train, 2nd time at Ashton Gate due to happy hour in a bar Chas was in.

If I was a drinker I'd have pint with any of you, even those I disagree with in NUMB . I'm not actually as aggressive in real life.

Ok maybe I am, just not all the time.

Too many to mention for my 13 (!!!) years on KUMB but special mentions to DC, Clackers and Pinky (when he's not talking about tax rises).

I'd mention many more in dispatcheds ust for PMs received when I've been struggling over the years with my mental health .

We are a solid bunch you know.

Lots on here that I find genuinely funny (and interesting) so would buy a pint to get their views on the world

RARS
FJ
Last Caress

Finally, Iron Spine , I have lost count of how many times that guy got me into trouble for corpsing in the office and would be good to have been able to buy him a drink and see if he was as funny in real life.

Sadly, with the problems he had I suspect that he is no longer with us but a genuine KUMB Hall of Famer and onefor whom I'd consider coming out of retirement (where has the beer emoji gone?)

PS have things become so bad in this country that we are reduced to sharing a pint?

All the generous buggers that have mentioned me, for starters.

Plus, eggy, Dan, Tenners, Ron, VM, Venk, Crossy, Clackers & Monkey nuts.

Too many fine folk to remember though.

I once had the great honour of an evening out with Clucking Bell on one of his visits back from the States. Now, I'm not a child, but **** me that bloke can tip them back. Very interesting and entertaining feller, although my memories of the evening are a bit hazy. That'll be the rohypnol, I suppose.

I've been approached in The Hammers, The Denmark and The Millers to be asked something along the lines of whether I'm btajim from KUMB. I was sitting with a couple of mates in one and some younger lads were all "it's got to be..." and "I bet he is" etc. I also heard two lads talking about the forum once but chose not to say anything.

I may have turned up had there been an open meet and I was around. Think I've met maybe half a dozen. One of the Daves got me a Malaga shirt and he was with Doc in a Manchester pub etc.
