    Foot.ie!

    The reason this happened was, a few fans have got together to exhaust all options in keeping Glentoran in East Belfast. There were quite a number of personal attacks on members of this group and at least one member was threatened at his own home with his wife and kids. The forum mods thought it was appropiate to close the forum as it was causing such distress and anger among supporters, if you can call the people making the attacks that.

    It is a shame, but perhaps necessary. There are much better Glentoran forums on the Ballymacarrett site and Irish League Forums site.

    Hopefully it will calm back a bit now that it has beem taken down.
    The SFAI are the governing body for grassroots football in Ireland, not the FAI. Its success or the lack of is all down to them.
