One thing I can say is that this site has brought may people together.  We even had a wedding with alibobs!

 

🙃 

Who would think the chat up line ‘are you Alibob off w-ways?’ Would work!

The TV pixel problem was hilarious, which gave Little Whit his notorious ‘Bloon’ stardom.  I’ve told that story in the pub, him and his missus rubbing balloons on their jumpers then being told they’re doing it wrong and to use their hair.   Fabulous, had me believing it to be honest, was quite convincing to me.

Out of Higuain and Messi, Higuain is the better player.

Posters I miss on here, Zozzy, NoBalls, Smiffs, and probably loads more if I think about it.

I've been on here since 2006. Met some fucking ace people home and away from on here and I genuinely think it's half of the match day experience for me. 

Ive liked a lot of those threads already posted but... 

Notable mentions go to meeting big E in guimaraes selling beach balls and not being able to shake him off since. 

Another fun one was meeting my mums new fella for the first time and realising he posted on here! 

Also gathering a load of Bolton shirts off here and donating to Goan orphans in India was ace because not one had a smile on their face! 

 

Edit: absolute fave not mentioned yet was Diddles and him using his wheelie bin as Guanluigi Buffon.

Remember Barry Knight coming on (might have been Rivals) and begged us to stop bombarding his message board, on his official site, with abuse and death threats. This Barry Knight was a Country & Western singer in the States and not the baldy, cheating [email protected] from Orpington, Kent.

 

Think he either close his site down, changed his name or blocked all traffic from the UK 🇬🇧.

 

Funny! 😁

I got the internet at home, ic24, free for 2 hours 8 till 10 and came across the tranmere rivals site, which led me to the bolton one

Was the night before we started the season at tranmere

Aiden and Greensmirk being the site whipping boys but still lingering.

Out of order for Happy, but The Gay Christmas time - 'festive' homosexual avatars at first but culminating in a mad hour or so of posting disgusting images trying to outdo each other, much to Diddles chagrin

I still get a Christmas card wish from that site, not been on it for years.:D

I think I’ve been coming on for about ten years now 

Met loads of great people off here now 

I probably spend more time on non football matters in behind the stands than I have talking Wanderers 

Great site and I would miss it if it wasn’t here, best stick another tenner in really 😂

WanderersWays 5 aside team. Then changed its name to Clackervalve FC. Then to Clackervalve Phoenix. We didn't have the best disciplinary record - K2K.

 

I'm up for another resurrection.

I was on the rivals site, think I had a different name on there though

Had this name the entirety of WW.com though.

I’ve spent almost half my life with folk shouting “Jewels” at me at away games

It confused my Dad for years as I obviously didn’t want to tell him “they’re my internet wends” :D

Met a lot of good mates through this site and travelled to away games in Europe and more through it. Not being a yonner it definitely had a big impact in meeting fellow whites, and I brought Gumbo and the Marples along too.

fair to say WW got me through my first job after uni; don’t have the time to be on it as much as I used to, but appreciate all the work by Happy and the mods.

Is Gonch still not a mod?

As part of the 20th anniversary celebrations, he's being made up to "mod" status. I think there is an official ceremony at the first home game of the season, when he'll be handed the secret passwords, and the £5000 retainer, in the centre circle.

Loads of good folk been on this site and some proper Wanderer's, sad when they decide no longer to post, may be an away fixture could be arranged for an old boys n girls Wanderersway reunion.

Madness isn’t it. 

I joined when Smiffs poached me off Paul Dodd.com. Remember selling white love for smiley at the reebok and happy wanderer aprocached me asking where he could find the editor. Wanderersways appeared in the fanzine not long after after coming away from rivals. 

The early days were ace, sportsman’s dinners and Miami travel etc. I had a break for while as never had the internet but came back in the middle of nervous breakdown posting utter shite in the middle of the night under a new account having lost my old one :D

Met some proper friends on here. Like proper friends In real life and everyfink. 

The summer piss ups were great and should return, my fault they stopped :( ...and like MK says we should do a big gay pile on a random away this season. 

Onwards and upwards you bunch of tarts. X

A JCL is someone who is a recent supporter of the club - not a recent addition to this site.

JSL.

HTH.

If Wanderers go pop can wways be re-marketed as 'In or Out Ways' ?
