Clarets Are You P-Z



We have been running a thread now for sometime in our 'Our New Posters Say Hi' forum asking our posters to complete a list of questions about themselves.

The list has built steadily and we would now like to capture this information more formally in one place in alphabetical order. We complete with those folk that post under names beginning with P-Z.

If you would like to be added then simply type your information on the question template provided in the forum.

You can go there direct by clicking this link:

Our New Posters Say Hi-Users Detail

We will also in time be providing mug shots to accompamy the information if folk want their photo to be displayed. That way we can build up a Clarets Rogues Gallery and help folk recognise others at games and at our events. Please send photographs to the site by emailing:
