Better. Now watch Arsenal v Chelsea and send your considered thoughts to theeditor@football365.com   Trying to set Mailbox rules Happy New Year to you all. Now, I enjoy the mailbox as much as the next man, but I feel that the New Year should bring some renewed standards and disciplines to the mailbox. With that in mind, can I propose the following house rules. 1. Three paragraphs. Every story should have a beginning, a middle and and end. With that in mind, present your argument, present your case, present your conclusions. No more scrolling through mailbox Ulysses. 2. Separate Mailboxes One of my favourite things F365 did last year was introduce a separate Arsenal mailbox after their latest meltdown. More of this type of thing please. A VVD mailbox would have been ideal last week. 3. Fridays Fridays used to be fun in the mailbox, let’s bring the fun back! 4. Letter of the Day/Week. Everyone loves awards right? 5. Be Nice to Each Other. No explanation required. 6. (Brackets). Let’s bring them back. 7. Humour. Not everyone needs to be a budding journo. Sometimes its ok to crack a joke! 50. Phil Neville. All the best. DC, BAC   Comments on the comments section Co-incidentally, I was just going to write in regarding comments after reading the ever-thoughtful Peter G’s interesting article and the comments below it, but Lee (dons tin hat) beat me to it. I wonder if the desire to post vitriolic comments on articles is indicative of mental health problems, an inability to communicate face-to-face or just a fear of somebody being able to shoot down your comments? Presumably why these characters post comments rather than email the mailbox and be moderated/junked? But I think most probably it’s because they’re either young and/or have time on their hands. And it’s probably why more reasoned posts not talking about the ‘big’ clubs and by older contributors (Ed, Peter G, etc) attract the most ire. Is it also a coincidence that the most brain-dead responses seem to occur on articles related to Man Utd and the bigger teams? Somebody has to be clicking on those Mourinho-led pieces! The mailbox is genuinely reflective of a more reasoning and intelligent football fan which F365 aspires to, yet the comments section mainly contains ill-thought out invective and “you’re biased against my team” nonsense found elsewhere. So, I suppose I echo the words of Lee in that respect: What are you doing this for? The swears aren’t funny. The constant references to masturbation and genitals are immature and suggest a lack of meaningful contact with the opposite sex. In the words of Alan Partridge: “Get yourself a girlfriend”. What I do find funny, is the bizarre and foundation-less arguments and insinuations you throw out into the ether. And of course your inability to express your opinions without resorting to insults and expletives. So here’s the challenge. Why not do a Ben the Baggie (“Rondon” haha!) and justify your dislike for a team, ...
