      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. The tickets were sold over a month ago so they have had a month to allocate the point. Shocking. They have had 1 game to deal with since November 2016 and unable to get this updated. Feel for the folk who are on 6 points that are now on 7. There the ones who will miss out here. Looking at the table it looks like about 50% of the 7 pointers are able to get a ticket if the 8-10s snap up their ones.
  2. That's an absolute disgrace. Makes a complete mockery of the system. If you have earned a point you should be granted it straight away. How out of date is their system?
  3. Managed to get my hands on one. Thanks anyway calum83 . Appreciated
  4. Looking to get my hands on a match programme. Anyone know of any sites that sell programmes?
  5. Is Top Tier of South Stand good seats? Or would I be better getting the front 5 rows in lower tier? Never sat in Top Tier before before.
  6. Looking for two more tickets. I know its a long shot but if anyone can help. Be much appreciated.
  7. starts tomorrow at 12pm I think
  8. Totally agree. Im not his biggest fan but to boo the lad when coming is a disgrace and im glad he got the winning goal. We were 11 minutes from our campaign completely over and to boo him was poor.
  9. Rileys Bar on Leicester Square has a TA Party thing going on. Its advertised on FB
  10. Played against Villa at the weekend. Shinnie deserves a call up before him without a doubt.
  11. Really cant see the fun in that. As folk say. Use the pubs and enjoy the banter and comfort.
  12. Block 527 £55 tickets. I would have thought the £55 tickets would have been the lower tier. Nae fussed though, Got a ticket that's all that matters.
  13. Do most places shut at 11pm down near Covent Garden or is there some bars/clubs around there as well that stay open later? Couple of lads I know planning to meet me down there on Thursday evening but they don't arrive till nearer 10.30 pm so hardly worth meeting them down there if everything shuts at 11.
  14. Were staying in Covent Garden and arrive Thursday so be great if there's a big get together down this area.
  15. I was just saying the exact same thing. Gordon has put a calmness through our defence over the years. Something I have failed to witness with Marshall. Even many years ago when we was on the back end of hidings from the likes of Hungary, Sweden, Norway, Wales. 5 clean sheets in 25 games. I can't recall many heavy defeats for Scotland when Gordon was between the sticks.
