    Who here uses GMK as well? I just can't get my head around it. It seems quite difficult to use and a little slow compared to here.

    I just can't use a site that looks 20 years out of date... It was the original sky blues forum but it hasn't been well managed and needs updating.

    Erm, not sure of the intention of the post, but lets not start stupid arguing ;)

    I quite like to read it, some of the posts are really good but like all places there are good posters and cockends!

    The banter is dry though :)

    Why is there a rivalry between GMK and SBT? I'd like to spread myself about, but I just can't get to grips with the place.

    I'm not trying to start any arguments.

    GMK will challenge you to an arm wrestle if you're not too careful.

    I still use GMK. Half the time I can't get on though. It's a lot quieter than it used to be but it's still a good forum. Knowl's match reports are excellent and there are at least 2 decent posters on there. :D Quite a few post on both here and there cos you see exactly the same threads on both forums.

    Signed up to GMK before this, started one thread and was immediately shot down for having an opinion, it seemed I differed from the GMK 'party line' of opinion. So signed up here instead. Not trying to start arguments, just too many jebend's on there to deal with

    Have to be honest and say for the first time ever I Judas'ed SBT for GMK this lunch while the hacking scandal was at it's peak. Didn't like it but i suppose it's what you get used to. They'd dedicated a thread though mocking the fact that this site was down so there's obviously some strange rivalry.

    Aren't they both forums for fans to discuss CCFC? I thought there would more likely be a partnership than rivalry. They could do with Nick's help by the looks of it.

    I think the rivalry is one way over to here, not from the guys who run it as Knowl seems like an ok fella whenever I have spoken to him.

    Never used GMK, but don't think it was the first. Long before I used teh Telegraph site was a website called LAST (Lets All Sing Together). I think that was the first (and best), but sadly no longer with us.

    And Otis ... how on earth do you have the time to post on there too?!

    It's not as good as it used to be but there are still some excellent posters over there. They don't suffer fools though.

    There are some interesting and amusing posters there, however GMK doesn't have anyone posting with OlderSkyBlue58's accountancy knowledge.

    Last was quality - especially the videos of the goals! That sheffers one v palace where he controlled and volleyed it from the keepers long kick was sublime.

    Use both, its an antodote to the the tittle tattle threads often descend to on here. This place however is busier, so you see more topics. GMK though has often provided me with geneuine laugh out loud moments, some on here take things far too seriously.

    Since the Telegraph board was suspended I have no interest in visiting any football forum other than SBT.

    Same Dutch, cannot find time to post on both sites so never used gmk. I don't understand the rivalry thing either. I used the telegraph website before and it was a good bunch of lads on there, most have moved onto here.

    i just had a moment of nostalgia, and googled 'gmk online', and I ended up in this thread. There's no escape!
