    Pretty dire decade for me. Lost my Mum in 2012 and my Dad and Brother in 2014, stepdad got cancer and now has dementia, broke up with the other half, lived some of it in Palace territory. We have lived under the foul yoke of a Tory government for most of it and we voted to leave the EU. Trump became president and Johnson became PM.
    Legends like Bowie, Cornell and Prince left us.
    Good points are I moved back to Sussex and got the kind of job I have wanted for years, we got promoted and moved to the Amex.
    All in all I will not miss the 2010’s. Just a pity that the 2020’s will inevitably see the destruction of the United Kingdom and unimaginable climate disaster. I also wouldn’t rule out a global conflict in the not too distant future, probably nuclear.
    How lovely.
    I’m so sorry you had to live in Palace country Clampy.😉
    now my friends have gone,
    and my hair is grey,
    and I ache in the places that I used to play.

      The fraud that was Austerity followed closely by the fraud that is Brexit.
      To be followed by the biggest amount of borrowing ever and the sale of our infrastructure to overseas countries that don’t have our interests to heart. I fear that what is going on in Hong Kong will migrate over here. Football, if it survives, will be the release to the populous is was pre 1960s. I’m going back to bed!

      Very mixed.

      Marriage broke up and moved to New York. Kids grew up and now both doing well at uni.
      Albion did better than in my wildest dreams. Still enjoy my job but a bit stuck in it.

      Onwards and upwards as others on here have said.

      Pretty shit for me lost my Mum in 13 Dad in 17,step Dad in 18, also lost 1 uncle 2 aunties 1 cousin numerous friends. Have had to attend 2 coroners courts for deaths at work. I can’t wait to see the back of the 10’s. If I’m honest I think it has been the main cause of my serious mental health problems dealing with all of what I’ve been through. Good riddance

      Right opposite my bedroom window was a house with a Palace flag and scarf in the window. I used to run in my Albion keeper’s top and always stop and do drawn out stretches right in front of that house. It was my duty.

      I was thinking exactly the same your response is concise and to the point a decade (excluding the Albion) where yet another generation has been forgotten.

      Last night Mrs Blue3 was watching a programme about Harvey Nicoles and how it caters exclusively for the wealthy, very weathly and mega weathly one comment I recall from one of the individuals at the top of the management was how the financial crash of 2008 had affected sales and how spending did not return to normal until 2011 which left me stunned that only took 3 years for us to recover from the worst financial crisis since the Second World War as it seemed to still be going on to me ! just how out of touch are some sections of our society, the vast majority are still paying for the sins of the few I am also amazed at the vast majority who will do all it can to ensure the minority retain the status quo, our social structures are so ingrained its totally crackers
      Famously, many of the senior bankers who’d ‘played casino’ up until 2008, were soon employed again in lucrative positions.

      I would say that some people still moaned and were angry then, portraying life in the UK as crap. Anecdotally, NSC would’ve had a small army of posters relentlessly depicting Cameron and Osborne as evil fascists. In hindsight, when benchmarked against Trump, and the extremes we have now at home and overseas, what bunkum.

      The rise in racism and angry nationalism, including anti semitism from right and left loons, is something I simply never saw coming.

      Personally, I still see many positives in life. Going by your interesting posts, away from politics, you do too.
      I feel quite different. Personally I am fine, I enjoy my life, I have interests and plenty going on to keep me busy, and those close to me are all working and reasonably/relatively fit and healthy etc. I do really feel for the younger generations though; many doors have been slammed in their faces by the selfish, bitter and envious acts of my generation.

      The social media/smartphone revolution that destroy everything is the horror show of the decade.
      Ironically im probably not the only one who just "thumbsuped" that on my smartphone going about my daily business attached to the internet on at least one device tracing everything we do. The world has changed around us more than the industrial revolution
