Just to discuss something a little different to take our minds of the current depression.

Usernames, we all have and use them. Some are obvious, some not so. If yours is one that is quite different or just basic, what was the thinking behind it.

I'll get it started. TINTOWNER..........I live in Immingham and when they started building the docks in 1907, the contractors were housed in tin houses and the area became known as tintown...hence my username.

A rubbish thread..........I'll get my coat!

My name is Michael but, to save time, I sometimes shorten it to Mike and I support Grimsby Town AKA The Mariners.

I am exiled in Prestwich, Manchester


And gentlemen in England, now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day
