      Exclamation Suggestions required for Football-related threads

      Assalam u alaikum everyone!

      Getting straight to the point, there are four stickied threads related to Football in this section . And usually only one thread is active at a time. I unstuck the 'Football transfers thread' recently because it's pretty much dead during the non-transfer window season.

      I've also noticed instances of people posting haphazardly, like discussing a Champions League match in a non-UEFA thread, posting/discussing transfers in an unrelated thread and so on.So to make the discussion more streamlined, I propose to have a single dedicated "Football discussion thread" in addition to a "UEFA Champions League and Europa League thread". (there's also an option of merging the UEFA thread into the General Football thread).

      Very few people religiously follow non-EPL matches anyway so you can take those, EPL and the International matches discussions to a dedicated Football thread. Not to mention, such a measure will allow me to easily monitor the threads and take appropriate action swiftly where necessary.

      Now before acting, I considered it appropriate to take the opinion of the stakeholders involved (i.e the PG Football fans). So post your views on the suggestions I've proposed. And I'm sure we can come to a definite conclusion.

      Please tag anyone I missed. Your feedback will certainly be taken into consideration.

      Good idea. I'm all for a UEFA/Europa thread and a Football thread for everything else.

      Thanks for considering our say before acting.

      Sounds good. I am mostly a passive member but it defo gets confusing sometimes when we have fa cup, epl, la liga etc going on at once ,

      I was of the opinion that the sheer popularity of the EPL thread [considering the amount of pages it has w.r.t others] should see it live as a single thread. And we could merge non-EPL and UEFA thread into one.

      But SEv is pretty much right here. There is no 'ronak' like there used to back in the days anyway, so go ahead, merge 'em into one.

      That's actually a pretty good point. What do the others say about this?
      The other threads pale in comparison to the EPL thread which is nearing 2000 pages!

      And while we're at it, you can also suggest measures that can be taken on my behalf to make the Footy threads active once more. I'm all ears (or eyes).

      Leave the "English Premier League" thread as is.

      Merge all other threads under one banner called "General Football Thread". I propose that the following threads be merged into this new thread;

      -> International, Serie A, La Liga, MLS, and non-EPL Football Thread
      -> UEFA Champions League and Europa League thread
      -> Official Football Transfer News & Rumours Thread

      I would second hmir's suggestion, let the EPL thread as is since we discuss the FA cup and carling cup etc there as well.

      If you merge all of these threads in one then it would get confusing as one person will be discussing LA Liga and at the same time other will be posting about the epl matches, since both of them are at the same days of the week.

      Merge these:
      -> International, Serie A, La Liga, MLS, and non-EPL Football Thread
      -> UEFA Champions League and Europa League thread

      Lock the "Official Football Transfer News & Rumors Thread" we can discuss the transfer news in the related threads, for example: transfers that involves english clubs can be discussed in the epl thread and other transfers can be discussed in the "General football thread".

      I agree with the merge, most of these threads are redundant. Two separate threads for the EPL and General Football would be adequate for discussions.
