Too many to choose.

No More Heroes was my introduction to punk, via an older brother.
Something Better Change - teenage frustration distilled into one song
Five Minutes for sheer nastiness
Duchess - a personal favourite
Golden Brown and Strange Little Girl, obviously

Always The Sun probably my fave if you push me

Best review of Walk On By: "Dionne Warwick's version sounds like a cry of pain, The Stranglers' version sounds like the threat of a mugging"

I tend to agree.

It won't win many architecture prizes, but it does look like it might be OK to watch football in and is in the right location. Which is pretty much the point for me.

The Question of bottled beer

Anything Polish

Can't agree with that.

I tried Brasso once and it did get me p*ssed but it tasted rank.

Loved that when I first found it in old Czecho nearly 30 years ago; always wanted to find it in the UK to see if it's as good as I remember. Good to hear it's still on form even if I can't get any.

Normally I'm an ale man - there's a great little brewery here in Stroud - but I like to go Belgian Lambic at Christmas to make it feel different.

Sounds like Hall had a cracking match and also sounds like a fairly solid one from Leistner.

Like Brian I was young and maybe expected too much. I'd been a kid during the Bowles era and then a teenager in the Clive Allen/Goddard/Roeder/Stainrod/Tommy Doc and Terry Venables years. I was used to great players just a few years older than me rolling off the production line and innovative football.

I didn't like Smith dropping Hucker (one of my FA Cup heroes) and the players he liked seemed to be ancient (i.e. over 25!) overweight and to have had their best days at other clubs - Robbie James and Sammy Lee spring to mind. Even when I liked them, like Falco, they never felt "ours". And his style in those first two years was pragmatic, not revolutionary like Venables.

In hindsight that was sensible after the Mullery fiasco and with the merger and ownership sh*tstorm coming on his watch too; and Smith was genuinely revolutionary in his last years - still don't know how much of that was him and how much Peter Shreeves, but he brought Shreeves in and must have "signed off" on the tactics anyway so fair play. And by then I was older and he proved me wrong on old players with Trevor Francis, Super Ray and Peter Reid. (I changed my mind on Robbie James come to that. RIP Robbie)

He'll never be a favourite of mine but a decent man who did a good job for us. 3 and a half seasons in the top flight and we never really looked like going down, plus a well-deserved run to a cup final, and left the squad and club stronger than he found it. Can't knock that.

EDIT: Ray and Reid were Don Howe signings, weren't they? But the principle's the same.

I was always a big fan of the Roy Wegerle smash-it-into-the-top-corner approach but Eze does seem to plant it pretty fast into the (bottom) corner - I'm not sure how easy it'd be to save even if you do know which way he's going.

Even Royston had one saved, I forget who by.

I think that's dead right.

If we had any cash to spend this Christmas, would we be spending it on some bright young talent, or on the nearest things we could find to Richard Dunne and Paddy Kenny?

Summer might be different.

The fairy tale of New York
at 13:41 4 Dec 2019

Chaucer was born and brought up in London; probably at 179 Thames Street.

His father was in the wine trade in London but had a job in Southampton when the Black Death hit London, which may have saved their lives (and certainly made them richer, as several other relatives died and they inherited.)

He didn't move out to Kent until he was middle aged with his children grown up and his wife dead. I think he'd have liked "Fairytale of New York" though, it has a story and one that old Geoff could have written himself.

Think you might have got the rest of the plot of the rom-com there, with a bit of a tweak here and there.

I don't think mentioning that you had an old flame who became a supermodel in NY is entirely in the spirit of this thread and certainly rules out me rehashing my story involving me chucking up outside Rayner's Lane tube on the way back from Motiorhead at the Hammy Odeon in front of about 100 coppers.

What you have there Bosh, is a Richard Curtis rom-com and I recommend you cash in. A false name on the writer's credits is advisable however, otherwise you'll have a new entry for this thread.
