Do we trust it really is @Misto or is it an FI stooge under the guise. Sent in to infiltrate our discussions and keep them rosey.
Does anyone have a question to ask that would prove its the real Misto?
It's really me. Do we still do match day/banter threads?

@Westy what prizes did @Misto provide to the winner of @Advinculas-Index competition.? Also, who was he pictured on stage with on the photo that was uploaded.. Oh yeah @Ericali I'm the tainted winner of this season's competition, even closer to winning it outright than the Scouse!😂 check out my 🌟 next to the master thread info bit below!⬇ 😁
Sir Geoff Hurst sign shirt and the photo was me with Hurst.

Welcome back @Misto
Cheers mate, need to get my port value back up, just under 10k right now and not added in a good while. Took loads out for the house.

Welcome back Misto, good to see you again
Good to hear from you again. :)

Welcome back :-)
@Hotspur said in Catch me up.:
The quality of the forum has deteriorated since your sabbatical. Your return is good news for the forum.
Good to be back. There was a talk when @Noirx4 and myself had a conference call with FI Towers about the forum. User admin was talked about, but guess nothing has happened with regards to a active admin.
@JonesyFI-WH said in Catch me up.:
I have no idea who you are @Misto but judging by how nicely you've been welcomed back by everyone I am also glad you are back on the forum ;)

M! I! S! T! O! 🕺
Yeah it didn't work out...although I notice Osimhen has had a few easy MB wins and I'll be straight back on him if strong links to the Prem materialise.
Where have you been?
Hi Mate, Long story short. Nan was ill and died. Went to America then The Bahamas the day after(good/bad timing), got trapped by Hurricane Dorain, then noped out of there to Mexico, then down to Central America. Got really drunk and cracked my head open and had to pay just over £1000 for stitches at sea. So I was off the forum for a good few months after all of that. Then I started on my refurb house plan and was getting one house ready for rent, while buying the other. So spare time has been a real premium for me. Things are starting to died down now, apart from work is mental at the moment.
@Tom7471 said in Catch me up.:
@Misto how did the house flipping go? Me and my girlfriend want to give it a go at some point.
Pretty good. I'm happy with what I've got done so far. Will need to see how the market reacts to Covid and the recession that is coming. I can sit on it anyway as i'm living in the house i'm doing the refurb on. Got way move do that I thought in 6 weeks because I was on furlong for 5 weeks, but I've also spent a lot more than I was planning in a month because I had so much free time to work on the house. I gutted the place first and have fitted 1 bathroom and 1 en-suite. Replaced the radiators with underfloor heating, new flooring down, all lights changed to spots or feature lights. Some walls moved around to make better use of the space. New kitchen almost fitted. I've moved on to the garden for now because of the nice weather. Pre covid I was hoping for a £50-60k return. Even if it's say 40k I would still be happy for the work I've done. I just need to get back to a single property within 3 years, because I can claim back the second home stamp duty I've paid. All in all. I'm not at the end of this road yet, so I can say how well it has gone, start to finish. Also if I wasn't living in it, so having it act as a home and investment. I would be a little more worried with what is going on.

@Misto it appears welcome back is in order; I arrived after you left but I’ve only heard good things about you.
Your pinned thread was very useful, so thanks for that.
The forum is a strange place currently a mix of egos and opinions but generally most of the guys and girls here are a decent bunch.
Just hope @janner73 comes back again.
Glad you found the thread useful. It will need updating I'm sure, but i'll sort that out with the help of some of the other old heads.
