  1. Sure, but this says 'pick up only'. I have no idea how this works, but was just surprised to envisage somebody having to stand back to let a passenger on without being allowed to just step down on to the platform.
  2. I note that the train stops in Reading 'to pick up passengers only'. Is that really true? I mean, are passengers actually forbidden from disembarking?
  3. As it would to anybody who had the misfortune to watch the 1986 European Cup Final between Barcelona and Steaua Bucharest and Barcelona.
  4. Fellow citizens of Bonnie Dundee Are ye aware how the magistrates have treated me? Nay, do not stare or make a fuss When I tell ye they have boycotted me from appearing in Royal Circus, Which in my opinion is a great shame, And a dishonour to the City's name (...) I am not sure now, given it must have been almost 50 years ago, but it was either the late and great Eric Dehn or Jim Hunter who introduced me to this wonderful Irish poet.
  5. Hmmm. It looks good, tastes good and, by golly, it does you good. I bet most on here have never even heard of it.
  6. I understand, and you make a very valid point. If, however, you are referring to the London-based poster who refers frequently to 'Wee Lee', whilst I share your criticism of the term, I would suggest you persevere and read his posts for, that derogatory term aside, they are generally astute and very much to the point.
  7. As is always the case, no apologies are ever needed for an erroneous post made in good faith.
  8. No. @Drew Peacock is quite correct. Norman Hunter joined us when we were still in what was then the First Division, whilst Joe Jordan joined us (as a player) when we were in what was then the Third Division
  9. This was a bit of a tease, wasn't it? Are you going to let us know what happened? You are almost as bad as @Up The City!
  10. One of the first football matches I ever watched, on (black and white) television, was the 1965 cup final between Liverpool and Leeds Utd. Leeds had been promoted the previous season and had just lost the League 1 title on goal difference to Manchester Utd. I felt sorry for Leeds - I was a young boy back then - and so wanted them to win the FA Cup final as consolation, but they lost 2-1 to Liverpool, for whom Ian St. John scored the winner in the last few minutes of extra time. Of course, both Liverpool and Leeds, managed respectively by Bill Shankly and Don Revie, paraded players who would go on to be household names and revered throughout the country, but the player who stuck out for me that afternoon was the little black Leeds winger, Albert Johanneson. Although I would come to watch some fantastic black players in the following year's World Cup, e.g. Pele and Eusebio, it was Albert Johanneson who captivated my attention in what, in truth, was quite a boring match, quite possibly due to the novelty value of him being probably the first black player I had ever seen playing top class football in England. So, for my sins, Leeds were my 'second team' during the 1960s/1970s, although I lost a bit of love for them when, still a young schoolboy, I was abused and physically threatened by several of their fans outside Elland Road late one Tuesday afternoon back in February 1974.
  11. Or even a young Evander Sno, although he failed to reproduce his form in that friendly.
  12. Ah, I get you now; the 'Sod's Law' theory. Re. Miss Taylor, I only attended her English classes, paying particular attention to spelling .
  13. Win or draw against Shrewsbury, we would always have been ball number 13.
  14. Witness Antoine Semenyo's red card last season against Derby.
  15. Well, he's already bled blue, green and orange. Presumably we can now expect him to bleed cod liver oil.
