thats kids for you. anyone else woke up to school holiday films every morning for 6 weeks or more, and knowing every word to the bloody film. goonies, son, 1987 when he was 4. secret garden, 1990, when she was 4.
sunderland away, the night game we won 2-0, chris ramsey in charge. went overnight, took the mrs along for company, but only for a few drinks before the game, she's not a football person, but enjoys the social side. had to meet proudlock in a working mans club in the town centre over that bridge from the ground, the club was called the gunner. me and the mrs walked in, speaking to proudlock on the phone, said he was in the bar on the right, walked in, and mass up roar, "get her out," or words to that effect, "no women aloud in this bar" my god, you'd have thought she'd walked in with a gun, but that was their rules and we had to respect them. apparentley plenty of places in sunderland like that, so we were told. anyone come across anything like this in recent years......thought they were a thing of the past.
been watching clips of man city fans and the other lot in portugal. never seen so many man bags in my life. is this the new football fan fashion abroard, or do we have to carry a lot more to games. funny to watch them belting ten kinds of s....t out of each other last night with them things wrapped round them.
watched a catch up on this documentary about derry city, from the troubles in 1972, to 1985. a group of men, the gang of four, got derry back on their feet, doing the trebel and beating benfica in 1989. loved the quote from one of their fans..."we could'nt afford tickets, so we all stood on the grass verge that overlooked one part of the stadium, we called it skint hill".
don't know much about this lot only that they done the double over us this season, 6-1 agg. just had a look at the top 6 and there they are.....jesus, how long they been up there. did anyone honestly expect them to have done so well this season, and could well be the surprise package to go up through the play offs.
