Welcome To The Football Forum

Recommended Posts

Afternoon guys,

I'm Macclad and,as my username implies,I'm from Macclesfield in Cheshire.

The last 4 years have been split between Thailand & England but I'm hoping to settle in Thailand now......visa permitting !

I'm married to a Thai girl and we live up in the NE of Thailand,about 50 kilometres from the border with Laos.

I've travelled around a lot of Thailand.....Bangkok,Phuket,Samui,Koh Chang,Hua-Hin,Chiang-Mai,Pattaya,Isaan etc.

I love the football.My favourite Premiership team is Manchester United but as its almost impossible to get a ticket to see them I go and watch my local team Macclesfield Town.

I brought my missus to the UK for a couple of years and I did manage to get her to Old Trafford a couple of times,useing someones season ticket.One was a Champions League match (Lille) and the other a Premier League against Fulham (4-2) and she really enjoyed the experience.

I also took her to watch Macc Town but she was less than enthusiastic for some reason !! :D

Premiership title & Champions League looks like being a bit of a nail biter for United,particularily with Vidic and now Ferdinand injured......shades of last season. :D

And Macc Town look like surviving in the Football League for a 12th season,which is a lot longer than most people,including myself,thought !

Read loads of the posts already and responded to a few.....happy to be part of the forum.

Welcome Macclad, I remember going up to Moss Rose a few years ago now in the away end chearing Lincoln on !! (I have freinds from Lincoln) it chucked it down all 90 mins & was soaked to the skin for hours. Nice few boozers though near the train staition sticks out in the memory. :o

Cheers chavy,

Macc have now got the ex Lincoln boss,Keith Alexander,as their manager.

From being almost relegation certainties with 1 win in 18,theyve picked up 14 points in the last 8 games since he took over and are all but safe......amazing what a change of manager does !

The away end hasnt changed,youll be pleased to know :D but plenty of good pubs in Macc....great for a night out or downing a few beers before the match. :D

Welcome Macclad, sure you'll enjoy the banter in here. There are quite a few here who know each other personally. so sometimes things may seem a bit strange.

Yeah Macc. My Mrs now lives with me in Rochdale but we have land etc in Chaiyaphum and her family live up that way. We go to Thailand about 2 or 3 times per year and as well as visiting Chaiyaphum, we stay in Jomtien. In fact, i just booked my flight last night and i fly on tuesday night :D However this is a quick visit, just over 2 weeks, so i won't be going up to Chaiyaphum this time. Where's that 'yippee' emoticon :D

Hi Everone,

just wondering if there are anymore Rotherham United (nil) Fans in Thailand, or am i the only one as usual when i move country. Be great to hear from anymore, even better if your in chiang mai, think that may be pushing it a little though.

cheers

Hi folks

Regular visitor to Thailand (tourist type) would love to settle someday but getting too long in the tooth - some of my family might though.

Glasgow Celtic Supporter, don't appear to be many around ThaiVisa, mind you not too many in my part of Scotland either, anyway I enjoy

Looking forward to it guys. Have noticed a reluctance from supporters of the "other" Scottish team to make themselves known!!!

Good! The b*st*rds seem to be everywhere, we might get a bit of peace on here.

Despite being from Anfield I am an Evertonian, and despite that I am a Glasgow Rangers supporter. (All Scots fellers can now do a double take - see it ain't the same!)

But am getting old and mellow and can even tolerate kopites and their team nowadays, well as long as they don't actually win anything important that is .

Hello chaps,

Good to see some footie banter, I've recently moved to Thailand from London, am a Gooner, and a particularly happy at the moment after yesterday's result.

Am missing my football - does anyone know of any Farang-friendly leagues in Saraburi or nearby area? Am at a loss short of turning out for the father-in-law's work team.

Still can't believe Peter Reid is the national coach here!!
