      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. Exactly my feeling
  2. Watching on bet365 for anyone wondering. I have 1p in my acount so can. Have a tenner on scotland at 6/4
  3. 1-0 burke after 2 mins. Ran half the pitch. Too late to get him in first team??
  4. Scotland are 29/20 today, anyone know if Czech republic are strong?
  5. Scott McTominay on Man United's bench, interesting
  6. screamer for Robbie Muirhead yesterday, long way off squad but definitely talent there
  7. Seen that, annoying. But on twitter it says he may be joining "Chaves" on loan, think they're 7th in league
  8. No Kingsley for Swansea, he injured? Probably a good thing as they're 3-0 down to Boro
  9. Murray Wallace starting every week for table topping Scunny in league 1, getting rave reviews in a local paper I seen on twitter. Don't know why scunny when spelt correctly is showing as Shorpe??
  10. Think we've only beat Gibraltar and Malta in competitive games since then? Could be wrong.
  11. Griffiths has changed his twitter name to #shorty
  12. Yeah I'd agree with this, also was Tierney not tried on the left of a back 3 before? Could allow us to put him and Robertson in same team. Not sure if it would work but must be worth trying
  13. Is this easy to do? Always flirted with the idea but thought it may be more complicated to set up than it appears?
  14. Centre backs and paterson fill me with utter fear! Fan of burke robertson and snodgrass, rest are a bit meh
  15. I ageee, would have him starter at right back. Believe he's started both games for Stoke there this season
