Posters: where are they now

Recommended Posts

Thinking back to some of the regular posters on here from recent/older times and wondering whatever happened to them. For starters:

 

Alpine_saint: the poster everyone loved to hate but contributed greatly. You could set your watch by when the complaints would start we were nailed on to do well!

 

Saint Charlie

 

View from the Top: no nonsense and always entertaining

 

Dubai Phil - miss the stories of his golfing exploits

 

Art - mad as a box of frogs but very entertaining

 

Saint 76er

 

Sure there's many, many more...........

Most of the best posters no longer post and you can see why.

 

I would add Eric in Sweden to the list.

Doh, I meant David in Sweden.

 

Gets so confusing with all the Dave's, Duncan's and Ron's of this world!

Um Pahars showed his face the other day - that was a blast from the past, although I think he resides on the other channel if my brain hasn’t deserted me.

 

Alpine is still here - just one of his alter egos from North of the border is probably spending too much time trawling the betting sites or polishing his golf clubs to dust him off - probably get another PM off him for posting this now........... C’est la vie 8)8)

I think Alpine might have died. He’s definitely not Glasgow, a few posters met him when Saints toured Austria many years ago.

Didn’t I read that Dubai Phil is now living in Poland with his Polish wife?

 

I suppose he should be called Polish Phil now.

 

Blimey - bit of a comedown from Dubai if true!

Trust me his Polish Wife would be worth moving to Poland for............When she told him they were going home.

Dalek has been exterminated apparently, so no more reminders that for the last 15 seasons he'd predicted us finishing 17th and the club would be happy with that.

Bearsy was always good for a laugh. Long lost in the woods it seems.

Dalek for years would wrongly predict a 17 place finish at the beginning of the season, and when we came in 17th in 2017/2018 he took a victory lap.

Ah Phil will be delighted he has been mentioned. He wont have as many golfstories to tell now. He is doing insightful tours around Poland especially Austwitz. As always he's having a ball

I do hope Alpine is Ok and not passed away as an earlier post said

He posted in november so it's unlikely.

No relation to me!!

 

As per the previously mentioned Dubai_Phil, who is now no longer in Dubai, ericofarabia has flown the Dubai Nest as well.

l should now change my name to ericofleigh, but arabia sounds so much better and interesting :lol:

 

We both have many happy memories of Dubai, but are now both very happy in our present surroundings, and @dubaisaints still Marches On!

Barry Sanchez - probably the weirdest, most argumentative poster I can remember. Blew in and then disappeared. Might have been a Glasgow alter ego.

I believe he passed away a while back, didn't he?
Blimey I didn't know that. He was the main mod on here for a while and a plumber. I didn't know much about him beyond that. That's sad.

Pancreatic cancer a couple of years ago, was in his late 40s I believe. Way too soon that.

didnt Roger Beeks eventually get exposed as old bill?

 

Yes I think he did. Also gone awol Sweet Potato, Johnnyfartpants, Ponty, Durleyfos, Foghorn Leghorn, Special K, although he does make the occasional appearance I think. Hatch and Master Bates seem to have gone quiet lately as well.

Pretty sure that was a lie about Roger beeks. Master bates stopped posting a bit after the abuse thing. He used to do a weekly bewbs pm which was a delight.

Yeah he was. I had a lot of behind the scenes interaction with him during my brief stint as a mod. We had a shared interest in music production and he very kindly did some mastering work on one of my early projects.

 

Had a genuine passion for Saints as well. Good bloke, gone too soon.

Badboysaint what a cute kid lol.

 

Used to sit near me when I were a teenager. Had him on Facebook/MSN for a while, he used to put up some incredibly disturbing things about his ideologies and beliefs about people that aren't straight white males.

 

Very mixed up kid, hopefully he's grown out of it now since this was a good 15 years ago now.

Some right old names from the past there, (and probably a few 'dual accounts' dare I venture...!). Few others that used to be on the radar:

 

Tijuana Tim

Eastleigh Soul Boy

 

.... and whatever happened to:

 

tommac

Mark or was it Marc Jackson....!!!

In these days of Political Correctness can we still request implementation of Rule 1 ?

I've got a pic of badboysaint somewhere with his shirt off on a coach. He must be in jail by now.

I got to know 'Saintlee' quite well behind the scenes, met on a few occasions and had some good interactions on Facebook, especially towards the end of his life. Very sad that he passed away :(

 

I'm also friends with 'Saint David' who was Lee's best mate and was a huge support to him during his ill health.

I assumed most just changed usernames. I do miss recognising names and vaguely knowing who people were or who you enjoyed talking to.

 

No clue no really other than the couple of trolls on every thread.

They used to have the user gallery on saints forever which was good. Think tijuana Tim and possibly dell days was on there.
