Sgt Biscuits - Gooner satire whose tenuous Sergio Busquets pun username belies a tedious obsession with the imagined potency of foetal Arsenal academy prospects - exhausted by the task of researching weirdly-surnamed teenage sportsmen to feign confidence in, he dies on the way back to his home planet in January 2011 and is not mourned

scroobius pippo inzaghi - spends the memorable summer of 2013 deluging the "great/terrible names for pub quiz teams" thread with deliberately tortured, sub-par puns and portmanteaus. Tries to get away with "come back breitner", spends two hours staring at his laptop and sighing heavily and is never heard from again.

posh craig -- 23 yr old real madrid and chelsea fan who regularly posts 'wryly self-deprecating' messages about how he really is actually a football fan despite being 'crumpet-butterlingly middle class'. becomes easily riled when told that it isn't unusual for middle class people to like football and reacts by posting sordid rape fanfic and sectarian slurs. leaves ILF after being described by jim in glasgow as 'a falangist bawbag and probable childfucker'.

Harry Grayscale - debuts on the Premier League thread by making a surprisingly persuasive case for Ben Watson as the missing link in England's midfield. Follows up by starting a thread in which he proudly announces he's found a torrent of the first episode of ITV's The Premiership and now he's going to liveblog it. First 23 posts are all by him. The 24th post is his 3,000 word analysis of how the Tactics Truck could have legitimately changed the face of TV punditry. However, as he goes to post it, he gets x-posted by Ismael wondering whatever happened to Matt Elliott and flounces off to ILM, where he leaves shortly after getting into an argument with dog latin about whether "Erase/Rewind" or "Sleep On the Left Side" is the most under-rated single of the late 90s.

SimplySpurfect1987 - guy who really, really likes Spurs. Spends 18 months trying to get "ITS SCOTT PARKER O'CLOCK" over as a meme, wrongly encouraged by a previous groundswell of exaggerated affection for Tom Huddlestone. Subsequently drifts away having unwittingly caused eight regular posters to leave the board.

Bordesley Blue - hilarious, monosyllabic parody of an unintelligent Birmingham City season ticket holder. Has forgotten his previous identity four months in and is arrested for a string of public order offences. Kills several women while on bail.

Joe Pavey - his real name. Approx 1 in 3 of his posts are him pointing out that he is not the female long-distance runner Jo Pavey. Gradually builds up a cult following before finally starting his first thread on the eve of the 2015/16 season, a poll in which he invites ILF users to pick the next England manager from a list that includes Ian Holloway three times.

Karolina_Käse -- popular twitter account in austria that 'translates/transfigures' caroline cheese's bbc liveblog updates into gnomic nonsense poems in the style of kurt schwitters. the anonymous collective behind the twitter feed briefly posts to the ILF nult threads with impassioned scatological ramblings about mcnulty from the perspective of the semi-fictional fraulein käse.

SHOOT YOU DOWN - angry and combative Mancunian poster whose main contribution to threads is to endlessly retell the story about the time he followed Wes Brown, John O'Shea and Johnny Evans around a golf course in Cheshire and how they're sound lads and we're all fucking idiots who don't know what we're talking about. Cross-trolls on ILM with a succession of IAN BROWN IS GOD threads.

Igor - incurably morose, Igor is primarily motivated by hatred for the lazy, feckless individuals populating the Russian Premier League and the undeserving inheritors of Rurik's mantle in the national side. Nevertheless, Igor responds to anyone else's slights on same with encyclopaedic invective, which reaches a peak in April as the bloodletting and scapegoating following Arsenal's relegation is met with 100,000 words of impassioned boilerplate encompassing British meddling in late Tsarist times, the inalienable right to self-determination of the South Ossetian people, and how it was Van Persie's job to have tracked back for Arshavin before Swansea's crucial fifth goal.

Igor implodes when Russia are denied a place at Euro 2012 by a blatant handball goal by Shane Long in Ireland's final group game.

Happily, he makes a triumphant reappearance in May 2013 after a Messi/Ronaldo masterclass sees Anzhi Makhachkala destroy City in the Champions League final, proving that Russia is the greatest nation in the world and that, given the budget, Sam Allardyce was a world-beater all along.

Barry Beane - Stoke-based would-be sabremetrician. Posts vast info-dumps minutely detailing the statistical supremacy of Pulisball after every stage of the Potters' ineluctable progress to the 2012 Europa final. Ill-judged use of the term "multifinality" after their ultimate loss to FC Metalist Kharkiv prompts the return of much-missed Pomey-partisan DJ Martian, who vanquishes Beane with a pitiless display of Systems Thinking.

Stern Stern John - claims to be lackadaisical Trini striker born again after discovering 'de fyah ah de lord' following extensive conversations with Marvin Andrews. Splits his time between using terse, literalist interpretations of biblical passages to explain Birmingham City's off-the-field woes and offering disciplinarian child-rearing advice on I Love People-Making. Board members suspicious of his inconsistent patois are unsurprised when he is exposed as a fraud, following the real Stern John's arrest, alongside Dwight Yorke, for attempting to smuggle amyl nitrate and two under-age Belarussians into Abu Dhabi.

Cursory Googling reveals him to be Roger Walton, 47, a roofer from Morecambe who has been living as 'Stern John' for four years. It's a crushing blow to partially-sighted wife Martha, son Stern and daughter Sterne. Disappearing shortly afterwards, a tear-stained note is found on Morecambe pier reading simply "with his talent and my iron will, we could have made the world tremble before us".

Graz_Entertainment - hyperenthusiastic and tbh slightly creepy mitteleuropean poster debuts with a splash next week through his 'Never Mind The Red Bullocks - Weiner Neustadt won't win the Austrian Bundesliga 2011/12'. Not one to admit defeat, he notches up 847 unanswered posts through to the end of November before pandemic takes pity on him and streams Mattersburg v Wacker Innsbruck late one Tuesday. To pandemic's surprise, the quality is astonishing, Wacker's Luka's Hinterseer sealing a 3-2 win late on via a backheel rabona from his own half.

It turns out Austria's international performance over the past two decades has been a smokescreen to protect the tactical leaps and innovations in technique hothoused domestically for the highest stakes before rabid crowds. Word gets around, sonderangerbot even going so far as to attend February's Vienna derby, won when Stefan Kulowitz ears in a swerving screamer from outside the box in injury time.

By March the entirety of ILX's football chat has migrated to the thread, now including dozens of regular ilxors who previously wouldn't've touched football with a bargepole - even some girls. The season culminates in the inaugural ILF awayday to Salzburg, where against the odds Weiner Neustadt do clinch the title amid incredible scenes. At least two posters never return, setting up home there so as to never miss a kick again.

Alas, all does not end happily for Graz_Entertainment - on top of the humiliation of Weiner winning the league after all, Sturm turn out to be merely the tenth most brilliant team in Austria and are relegated. He relocates to spam politics and conspiracy theory threads instead, before fatal indecision sees him selected as mod in dubious circumstances. He uses his new powers to takeover De Subjectivisten and several other, weaker boards, and is only repulsed from ILM itself in an epic struggle. Thereafter restricted to the 'Ask Graz_Entertainment' thread, he eventually self-permabans in pathetic circumstances. Some wag attempts a Downfall youtube, but it's hardly worth it.

When Blackburn Rovers when the obvious wind-up vote, with posters arguing they will swiftly become the next Man City, he gamely joins in, passionately learning the history of the club and getting 'GAMST' tattooed on his back. A string of terrible Blackburn results follows and he realises he's been had, posting 'CUNTS! CUNTS! CUUUUUUUUUNTS!!!!!' repeatedly on football threads until such point as he is banned.

ILX comments range from "this man is a modern day hero" to "I can literally not see any point to him existing", the latter makes him so angry when he self-Googles that he registers and subjects the posting community to a barrage of all caps abuse.

Bou Radley - affable South Londoner whose sly wit and cheerful demeanour quickly make him a favourite of the board's regulars. Becomes the source of growing discomfort and eventually horror when his increasingly frequent posts to the ILE "what do you look like" thread are noticed to contain a lifesize cardboard cutout of Hamer Bouazza visible in the background, with the eyes hacked out and an increasingly grisly series of simulated mutilations to its face. He attends a "FAP" unannounced and after an otherwise pleasant evening is later ejected from the venue after suddenly overturning a table and repeatedly screaming "BOUAZZA DIE SOON". He is quietly permabanned from the site and moderators set up an autofilter so that any subsequent mention of his username is replaced with the phrase "stop being a dick", but an innocent reference to Bouazza's 2013 transfer from Millwall to Leyton Orient on that season's Football League thread causes a well known poster to suffer a nervous breakdown.

Gorgeous George - Amy Chetwynd, 23, a trainee geriatric nurse from Minehead is initially welcomed for her incisive tactical analysis but polarises the ILF board after posting a series of meticulous, inventive slash fictions pairing occasional Wolves full-back George Elokobi with a range of notable figures, including Magyar strongman Steve Hargitay, Claus von Bulow and Syama Prasad Mukherjee, founder of the BJP. Opinion is divided between those who view the spicy tales as inappropriate for a football-themed forum and those who believe the work’s undeniable literary and erotic merit deserves free reign. Compromise is found in a dedicated I Love George Elokobi board.

Chetwynd, who self-identifies as asexual, claims to obtain no personal gratification from the activity, preferring to view the stories as “thought experiments”. After two and a half years, in which she receives and turns down offers of commissions from The Guardian and Village Voice, as well as an ‘editor-at-large’ role at Shoot magazine, she disappears. Although attempts to trace her prove fruitless, her Fantasy Football team continues to dominate the ILX league until Elokobi’s retirement to become a quantity surveyor some years later.

Ferdy Zac Shaun - Semi-reclusive armchair fan who provides each Saturday evening a peculiarly earnest summary of the day's footballing events. Attempts to rile him into posting more frequently than his weekly 600-word spiel (always optimistically located on the 'football journalism' thread) prove futile, and instead the ILFraternity conspires to ascertain which team Ferdy supports. Eventually it is determined that Aldershot Town feature in virtually every report, regardless of the mundanity of their result, but as soon as this is pointed out on the thread, they are never mentioned again, although one smart alec observes much later on that Bournemouth Town are only ever mentioned whenever they lose by three or more clear goals. Ferdy never does get his big break, but his presence is cherished by all who never had gotten round to finding out how Hayes & Yeading were coping with the burden of expectation.

Spreadsheet is sent to Alexander Lukashenko with a request that FC Gomel defender Ezequiel Palomeque be deported immediately. A scanned copy of Lukashenko's letter of response, promising to review the evidence and consider the matter, is posted as a final crowning victory before he is banned by the moderators.

spazzmatavž -- ilx v2 grandee 'bosko' returns for a sadly less than triumphant second tenure, this time repeat posting tim matavž' stats for his troubled 2007/8 season at nd gorica, gaining a renewed clique of admirers for his what dog latin describes as 'spazztastic high-concept meta chicanery' before alienating them with a series of slurs against cerebral palsy sufferers and increasingly deranged blood libels against the slovenian and croat nations

HOLTY, HOLTY IT'S GAZZA -- Sir Lansbury's troll account for posting parodies of 'fat lumpen chavspud' GRANT HOLT, who initially reacts with good humour before determining that the insinuations of wife-beating and roid abuse are 'well out of order'

^^ new board description - seemingly automated catastrophe that initially occurs on ILF and then posts "^^ new board description" in response to every single new post on for eight continuous weeks, somehow withstanding all attempts to ban the account; after the turnover of new posts has decreased to a feeble, traumatised trickle, the entity ultimately disappears without fanfare, nearly every board description having been inexplicably changed to say "^^ new board description" on its final night of activity

the board description for I LOVE CRICKET: THE CHINATOWN OF ILX still just says DUMPLINGS!

abu akbar al-turikani -- volatile expatriate poster who joins ilf hoping to a find a supplier who can ship a carlos edwards 2007-08 player issue shirt to mosul. traditionalist views on apostasy and the doctrinal legitimacy of polygamous marriages with war orphans divide ilx, some expressing strong dissent while others defending it as a legitimate expression of the suppressed culture of north-east england. sudden sabbatical related by some posters to an f-15 strike in anbar province that reportedly destroyed seventeen armoured vehicles and a rare collection of wings memorabilia.

The Shawcross Redemption - shadowy poster who hints that they may be a former professional whilst posting increasingly threatening demands for Ryan Shawcross to be picked for England

Marcelo Carlino -- volatile south american poster who delights ilx with photos of his pugs and capybaras playing together in his private lake. migrates to ILF, posting broken english dismissals of every post in 'the nascent appeal of managerial competency' accompanied with grainy photos of his desk covered in hundreds of tactical diagrams. leaves abruptly and without explanation; references to marseille, the basque country and a trip to south wales in late 2015 are later pieced together by darraghmac to indicate a role in a global jesuitical conspiracy.

four months pass...

daddy's little girl -- embittered liverpool fan who registers and posts predominantly on the subject of jamie vardy's move to arsenal using a repeating cycle of JME lyrics and pictures of soiled wedding dresses. defended from accusations of triteness and creepiness by ilxor imago on the grounds that ILF 'could use some female presence tbh' until found to be a prototype chatbot from vardy's luxembourg based ChatShitGetBanged AG natural language processing lab.

grey mad professor pierre van hooijdonk and Roy poly ' I bought a pub' rafael van de vaart on my stream for the dutch

Roy Poly - publican and record-collector who pretends to be Rafael Van De Vaart for an entire half-season. Fond of posting about his alternative lifestyle choices to the Champions League thread. Rumbled when the real Van De Vaart is revealed to be in a happy and fulfilling relationship with a princess
