  6. I discovered football a bit later than most. 10 years old! The 1970 World cup finals, transmitting delayed coverage to our Black & White telly got me hooked & out of a sense of pure glory I started supporting Brazil. After the finals had finished I consistently pestered my Dad to take me to watch Brazil play. This was to my dismay a non starter as my Dad kindly explained that the Austin 1100 would struggle to make Skegness let alone Rio De Janierio. So it came to pass that in November of that year I was taken to Filbert Street to see Leicester v Swindon. Like the kid out of Fever Pitch I was totally overwhelmed by the whole occasion. The climb to the double decker, the odour of hot dogs & bovril & me & my Dad chatting to friendly strangers it was a massiver eye opener into the real world for me. The football, from the bit I can remember was a whole lot better than the odd bit you saw on the box now & again. So, that was that, after a 3-1 victory to City I changed my allegiance from Brazil to Leicester City & have spent the best part of 5 decades on the LCFC rollercoaster ride we all know & love. PS I still like Brazil though!
  7. Brewing crisis in Thailand Thought this was going to be a Singha beer thread
  8. Back in 1976 upon receiving my first wage packet I took a trip on my Mobylette to the tattooist on Filbert Street & after fibbing about my age had a Fox L.C.F.C tattoo on my left arm. Unlike now,this was in the days when tats were generally frowned upon. "you'll regret having that done" said me Dad..... The only time he was wrong!
  9. If you have one going spare mate I would love to have one to fill a hole in my Leicester European memorabilia. Will pay in pints.
  10. Kilburn, 4 stops on the Jubilee from Wembley North London tavern, White Lion, Sir Colin Campbell & Coopers arms all decent boozers & while reasonably busy you wont have to queue for half an hour to get a beer.
  11. I will only leave Leicester City to go to a big club like Manchester United, Rangers, Newcastle & ....er...Wolves. Its took the sleeping giants over 20 years & numerous managers to wake up.
  12. Tailors to the toffs for decades & the BS throughout the 80's
  13. Held his position well without flapping.
  14. Less 3,000 Watford fans Less 2,000 (approx) tourists Less 4,000 corporate & hospitality tickets Gives Tottenham a hardcore of 20,000 supporters. Will never be a big club.
  15. Definitely better off in the city centre. The few options near to Anfield are always rammed If you've got time to spare try the Philharmonic, lovely Victorian boozer.
