I’m sure there was an archive of all old posts for 606 and TMS at one point

But I don’t think they are there any more

Rex was the worst poster. Could argue all day and night.

I think I’m the only one that remembers the bbc boards before 606

Has your Moniker always been JustTrue?

posted on 20/1/20

On 606 I was always JustTrue

Before that I was RK_221

To be fair I haven’t posted much on any of the forums, but I remember them all

JT when did you do your classic Sachin threads? Were they on 606 or JA?

posted on 20/1/20

They were on 606 just before it closed down

I was so hated back then, but loved every second

Pro sachin?

Sachin vs Lara was similar to today's Messi vs Ronaldo debate. I was always a bigger fan of the West Indian

It was more the fact that our Indian friends constantly wanted to tell us how Sachin was the greatest and then JT pulled some stats and there was a manhunt on him

Yes I loved both but preferred Lara too

However, these threads were anti-Sachin and during the 2011 World Cup fever

I sent some (admittedly very selective) stats again Tendulkar and I think one thread reached 600 posts in no time.

Its like wwe,there were plethora of articles posted on daily basis but now only very few are around on daily basis. Quality of cricket has gone down as well leading to lesser viewership as well. Its embarassing to even compare players of 90"s with present ones

Some times nostalgia plays a part though. I remember my old man talk about cricket in the 70s and 80s being far superior to the 90s. Cricket is different now. Completely different mentality especially around test cricket. Youngsters developing their game want to score quickly and be part of the shorter forms . No emphasis on batting long and valuing wickets.

haha I did love the ticking bomb that was Indian and Pakistani fans.

I am English and love cricket and my country.

But wow...Those guys were complete passion

Agreed but quality bowlers are very rare compared with 70's, 80's or 90's
