Due to several reasons, including inability in accomodating my request by 2 of the forum TPTB members, but most of all due to bigger and bigger lack of time which will only get worse as time goes by(am not 20 anymore), I'm leaving FIF for good.
I want to thank everybody who welcomed me back in 2006 and made me feel like at interisti home. Was looking for a place like that, to share my thoughts about Inter for many years, and I found this forum by fluke - lucky me Han, Stefan are definetly one of the first 2 guys from that group who helped me over the years with anything I asked them for, so thanks to them first of all.
Lots of years, lots of memories. Too bad some guys like Shahz(hope to meet you in person someday, somehow, my friend!), or FR are not here anymore, cause I enjoyed many good times here with them, and I'm sure things would be different with them on board. But I guess that's how it was suppose to be.
Rain, you're the man in last couple years! I love your views about this club and I wish we'll meet at some Inter game someday, and talk for a few hours, too bad you were so rarely seen here. Also Toninu, M.Adnan(miss you too man!), Hamm, CCCP, Principe, many, many quality posters who are not here anymore, or very, very rarely. It's a damn shame.
Can't name everybody(hope they all won't hold it against me), as there were quite a "few" and I would just hate to name some, but forget others, but thanks to all the people who valued my posts over the years and enjoyed reading them. Despite what some might think I didn't "change". Am still the same guy who popped in here back in 2006 out of the blue, saying honestly what I feel and believe is good and bad for the club, and saying things according to what my mind tells me and my limited knoledge, whether they are positive, or negative, not according to how those things would be "perceived" by the people who read them or what they say about it.
Same thing was in 2006, and same thing was in 2011, just posted how I feel. I guess I was just lucky that back in 2006 and 2007 the things I saw that were going with Inter looked positive to me, and now they don't, and so people liked what I wrote back then, and didn't really what I wrote now in this past year. Never the less, am not ashamed of any of the things I wrote over past 5 years, whether it was about Mancini, Balotelli, or Mourinho or Benitez, and I still stand by almost(99.999%) all of them.
Some of the awards that members gave me were big honour, and I appriciated them all, although I stand by what I've said after my first award - that there were others who deserved them more. It's a bit funny you know, and ironic!, cause I still remember how it was Sun who gave me first award of the month for the best poster here. Ain't it ironic? Should quote here his post, I bet he wouldn't believe it either and cracked a good smile if he saw what he wrote there . Probably some are now wiping their glasses to see if they read right, but it's true, he can confirm it , and I thank him for it as it was nice suprise, one of many to come. BTW, he gave me the same award next month too if I remember correctly
Thanks to those with whom I could intelligently discuss without any hard feelings towards eachother, even if our views were sometimes totaly different. This was the main reason I came here, and I enjoyed them all, as it's always fun to discuss about Inter in a cool environment. For one, that's you Cafe , or FR, and without any opposing views, but just aggreing with eachother it's just boring so it's always good to have people with different opinions, with whom you can discuss in a calm manner. You two were one of those people, and I respect you for it, and appriciate it.
A few words to "the guys".
N4L, you seem like a guy who has some decent knoledge. Maybe you come too strong when you meet someone with totaly different view than yours, but I guess so am I sometimes, so no suprise we didn't actually got eye to eye here. Maybe some day life will give us a chance to explain those differences face to face, that we had here and understand eachother better.
Hal, I know you're a guy who looks for fun first of all, and I understand it. Maybe the level of how it got included here on the forum almost everywhere as of late, ticked me off a bit or the type of humour which I don't like to be frank(or sometimes understand, english is not mine and many others native language for God sake!!! ), as I came here first of all to discuss things and I found it hard to do it lately in a peacefull manner without some people sticking their noses in those discussions. Sorry, got a bit off here All in all, no hard feelings Hal.
Blackmore, I guess it was never going to work. But sometimes... the guys who can't get eye to eye in real life, can be best buddies over internet if they only don't know who they are there, and same thing can be in reverse. Who knows if here in this case it wouldn't be similar. I'm sure you know what I mean.
Azz... it's funny, cause once we were one of the guys who couldn't stand eachother due to our completely opposing views, me defending management, and him attacking the way we are doing things, squad wise, but I bet now we could be one of the best friends here hehe, if he only wasn't banned. It's funny how things change, isn't it?
Ofcourse, I can't leave without my last final pic here . Too bad it's not after another CL final win, but it's still good :> And I think there couldn't be a better one at this point in time, than this below:
As for me... despite what some think, I will never stop supporting Inter, in good or bad, even if I'm not here, Just so we're clear. I wish it was different around here for some time, maybe I would stay for a bit longer spare some extra time of mine that is more and more limited, would find some drive to post more like it was back in 2006 or 2007 where we only had quality discussions and that is only what interested me, but it was hard lately to focus on discussing with some badmouthing or correcting some of the things "I've said in the past" all the time. Maybe it's for the best I'm not here anymore, nobody likes "pessimistic" guys anyway, and we all know how it ended with Azz heh , so probably am doing everybody a favour. Maybe the fact I honestly don't feel very good about the future of this club got to me too much, as I really care a lot about this club and our doings since last summer really and honestly troubled me. I don't know.
Anyways no hard feelings with anybody, good luck, and maybe we'll meet someday at the San Siro, or hopefully new stadium. That pic ^ could help you recognise me . Maybe I can dance with Alessandro in front of Curva Sud when we go on 0-4 lead again, before they kill us both. Who knows
I hope it won't be long before I can play "Let the good times roll" again at my place after some success for us, and ofcourse, always... FORZA Inter!
ps. 15 000 posts. It was a good run...
pps. That was my last signature "ppppppppppppps" here , How memorable, right?
