      TAMB CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT   09/06/2017

      Following diminishing numbers of visitors to TAMB and the subsequent reduction in TAMB income, it is the intention for TAMB to close definitively from 1st November 2017. TAMB can no longer generate enough advertising revenue to cover the costs of around £300/month to pay for the dedicated server that hosts the TAMB software.  The dedicated server is also older equipment and no longer maintainable, so at some point it would be necessary to migrate the TAMB to a new cloud-based platform. This is quite a large job and would take some time to do. We feel it wouldn't be a worthwhile task given the reduction in traffic and usage of TAMB.  It is the opinion of the TAMB Team that the days of messageboards have largely gone, being overtaken by other platforms. Thank you to all users of the TAMB over the years, and we look forward to seeing you on some other online forums in the future. Since announcing the closure, a number of questions have been asked.

      This is not a "boot in the arse" to Board members to increase traffic.

      It’s worth pointing out to any people wanting to take on the TAMB that they will quickly outstrip any “free” message board system. That’s what happened with the pre-2003 TAMB and also happened during the “current TAMB” in 2003 – 2004. 
      It’s all about the number of concurrent users online. At a point yesterday there were about 150 users online – Invision would be charging $130 per month for that. (https://invisioncommunity.com/buy)

      We would be prepared to do a handover of the domain names that we currently hold to non-profit making group who seriously wants to organise a new TAMB and has the skills and numbers to do it. This would not include existing software or server. We are especially keen that the platform or the name do not fall into the hands of what we can only call bawbags. We need not mention names, but I'm sure members can think of a few. Any new group would have to start from scratch and give TAMB a complete bottom up ‘makeover’ and make themselves financially viable.   We have a couple of people who are willing to offer advice to any serious players.

  1. Seen ealrier he was but he isn't :/
  2. Robertson starting for Liverpool tonight
  3. Ryan Gauld on loan to Desportivo Aves
  4. I thought they'd retired Charlie Adam's number after his legendary stint
  5. I believe Souttar also scored a header. Think he's 6ft 7?
  6. It didn't sound like his technical ability was the problem, sounded like he has a bit of a shit work ethic. Hope that's not true but only one way to find out.
  7. If Milner can hold down the left back spot I'd be pretty confident in Robertson being able to do it. Seems to have a good, level-headed attitude too so I don't think he'd let a big fee go to his head, although admittedly it adds some pressure
  8. I don't mind Anya usually but was absolutely astonished how totally inept he looked all day. I was surprised how much more room England had down the flank after Snodgrass went off, so I figured he was maybe doing an unglamorous but effective job.
  9. Not a transfer rumour, but Oliver Burke has been told he isn't moving away from Leipzig and that he's going to get more game time next season
  10. To be fair Snodgrass typically plays on the right
  11. A wee article on Harper http://www.bha.vitalfootball.co.uk/article.asp?a=559024
  12. Not sure how he got on but Harper has now played two games for BHA u21s, coming on as a sub in one and starting the other, after getting back to fitness.
  13. Happy to say he sounds like he's settled down and has his head firmly on his shoulders about how he can develop further . http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/32069992
  14. http://lockerdome.com/bbcsporf/6169461380096065/7347938431079956Gauld's second goal tonight
  15. First touch he nutmegs someone. Good omen.
