So guys, I might have asked this before, but I don't recall... What made you choose the username you have in here? Have you ever changed it? Or used a variation of it? Did you have another user name in the old bwfc websites? 
Do you feel like it's a part of you?

I've had the nickname Keegan since I was 14 years old and just started playing footy with adults. The name has stuck to me pretty well.

Hip Priest is the name of a song written by Mark E Smith of the Fall who are one of my favourite bands ever. Mark was legendary for being totally ruthless and firing band members on the merest whim. The Fall went through a total of 66 members before folding in 2018 when Smith died. The avatar is a picture of Mark looking suitably curmudgeonly. He was often referred to as "The Bard of Prestwich" or "The Hip Priest.

I think mine is pretty self explanatory but for any younger posters we had an inflatable pig called Norpig back in the 80's when i first started going to games regularly. I've been Norpig on all the Bolton forums i've used going back to the old 606 forum.

Biggie came from when I used to post on the official bwfc site and there was a guy on there who seemed the most prolific, called Big E. 

When the forum closed and I was starting the journey of making my own forum I borrowed his name, slightly altered to Biggie, in the hope that some people would be duped into following the original Big E to my new forum. 

Before that I was jayjay23. (and that's because I was 23 and more or less as good as Okocha).

Mine is an old nickname from the late 90s. Finlay comes from the old Beano character Baby Faced Finlayson because I was always the youngest looking of my group of friends. McDanger came about because my friends used to make fun of the t-shirts I wore back in the Madchester days (I was a big Inspiral Carpets fan) after I’d moved to London. They said I looked more like a darts player and I guess at the time a Scottish fella with the nickname “McDanger” was pretty prominent. I originally used it on 606 and Breadman started started referring to me as “Fin”. My wife once noticed a message of his on a browser I’d left open and decided she wanted to name our first son Fin, which we did.

Remember you posting on Reebok Rant J****.
Unsurprisingly I was Wanderlust in those days.
BTW I am still "more or less as good as Okocha" - in my head Smile

I presume you mean that you were more or less as good as that Nigerian guy....but never as good as his namesake here..... Cool

Mine speaks for itself. 
I live in Gloucestershire, and I'm a Whites fan. (Thought I'd explain in case someone thought I was a painter and decorator)  Very Happy

Ha. So breadman named your son? Did the milkman have a part in it?
