Curious to gauge opinion. BoroGuide is coming up to its 20th anniversary and, to be honest, I am struggling to be arsed.
I have 109 matches where I can't confirm lineups.
I literally am admitting defeat. I guess I'm asking if there's any point wasting my life and money now.
talking money, what are the support costs
I love it ! I use it to reminiss , and as I get older I will probably rely on this more and more to think back to the great times . I don’t really use it to look at the last few years but it has to stay for at least our rise from park football to the football league then perhaps leave it there . I been here since the start and I absolutely get why you don’t want to carry on . The club isn’t what it once was , if we call it out we get called out for being honest.
Why doesn’t Phil take critism Well ? Surely it’s been part of his business success so why not try it in his football life to ?
I use it lots as my brain is mush.
Leave it as a reference to 2020. Unless that costs you money.
I think it's a really good resource and it would be a big shame to see it disappear. It basically is the entire history of the club, or near enough. If you're a new fan, I'm not sure how else you'd find out past results, statistics, etc.
Really big help for my interviews in regards to doing research for games and looking up about players who I can possibly interview, especially those that are suggested who are before my time going/before I was born. Thanks for the amazing job you put in and if there’s any way I can help let me know, also maybe you could add the interview channel soundcloud there so people can hear from the players I’ve spoken to? Anything I can do to help just drop me an email over to [email protected] or dm any of the social media channels
Are you talking about not pursuing the missing info and not keeping it to to date or saying it will be completely wiped from the interwebz?
I'm not fussed about it missing some historical info but not having what is already there would be a great shame. Although of course as the years go on and if info isn't kept up to date it becomes less useful/reliable.

I don't think I'd remove it. Just stop doing it.
I don't think I'll ever cover off the missing 109 line ups now. The info is in old programmes and people's head somewhere. But I just can't reach them.
I use it rarely but it's nice to know its there.
I also wonder how you have the time and energy to do such a sterling job.
Anyway, thanks for doing it for so long.

It would be missed.
Could you take on an assistant to help?
I would certainly miss it if it was to go but understand the time, effort and money that goes into it.
I quite often search it to make spurious and/or tendentious posts on here. If you take that away, can you live with it?
My go to for any Boro stats. Would be sad to see it gone, but at the same time I can understand. Hopefully if it did go there would be somewhere else for everything to live on.
Love your humour.
Honest and funny.
You'll be missed.
