      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.

      Further to the Closure Announcement   09/07/2017

  1. At the start of the campaign a home win of 3-0 and an away draw wouldn't have been seen as that poor. Scotland did it the other way round. Hay ho
  2. DO we think it will sell out? Looks like they are doing the usual trick of selling it section by section to increase demand not look half empty on TV etc. Prices are a f&%king joke but as I’m up with work I’ll part with the cash. Did anyone else notice when watching the Malta game on TV you could easily be fooled into thinking there was a crowd of about 40k in the stadium if you didn't look to closely. I think this is why they are selling tickets in sections, pretty cynical in my opinion, you can end up with a crap seat because it looks like better sections are sold out on the ticket site.
  3. Murphy scored again for Brighton in Pre Season V Crawley at the weekend. He looked very impressive IMHO. I think he'll surprise a few in the Premier League this season.
  4. Industrial style of the English Championship? Not sure what football you have been watching pal but that shows a total lack of footballing knowledge. A. he didn’t even get a first team start in the "Industrial" Championship and only started rarely and mainly featured from the bench in the under 23's/Reserves. He wasn’t good enough, just because he played at Real Madrid as a kid dosn’t mean he’ll be a world beater. Watch a bit of how Anthony Knockaert plays for Brighton and see how “Industrial” the football is down here.
  5. Wolves are closing in on the £1m signing of 27-year-old Scottish left-back Barry Douglas from Turkish side Konyaspor.
  6. Restricted view sell them cheep.
  7. Hanley interesting Sheffield Wednesday. Hope he moves as he needs game time.
  8. Snodgrass to Brighton has been floating around, West Ham have gone off him and are trying to get rid.
  9. Scotland 1 - 3 England, They will go one nil up, we will pull it back, start playing some nice football, get on top of the game and they will pick us off towards the end. Same old story, glorious failure, not sure why I'm spending over £200 getting up, car hire, tickets etc. another lovely visit home spoiled by 90 mins of disappointing football. I hope that I am proved wrong......
  10. True enough, Celtic are bringing the young ones through at a fair rate these days, and all credit to them.
  11. I'd take Fat Sam as Scotland Manager over F*ck Witt Moyes any day of the week.
  12. Superior training facilities, Premier League team, The Weather, Great under 23's set up, testing himself against better players week in week out in a superior reserves league, Living in Brighton rather than Glasgow.... no, you are right why did he not choose to stay at Celtic? Joking aside, fingers Crossed indeed, I seriously hope he can progress as Central Defenders are a major concern.
  13. Dundee PSG CSKA Moscow Ajax Who remembers those Magic eye posters? AC Milan
  14. Josh Kerr signs for Brighton (Under 23's) http://www.seagulls.co.uk/news/article/2016-17/josh-kerr-brighton-hove-albion-celtic-3723844.aspx
  15. He is only on loan at Sheff Weds
