Well, you brought back some great memories with that one, Rico ("great", broadly defined).....


In my mind, that's forever associated with a dark, deserted railway siding outside Ostend at 2am en route to Euro 1988.


My mate and I had got the ferry (pre-tunnel days) and were in our compartment, waiting for the night train to head off for Germany.

Suddenly, we heard a load of rowdy England fans pile into the compartment immediately behind us.


Then they all started..... "Doctor Whoo--oooo...Aaaaggghhhh! FVCK!!!! Doctor Whoo--oooo...Aaaaggghhhh! Leeds! Leeds! Leeds!"....cue what sounded like a dozen blokes repeatedly booting the partition behind our heads.

This went on for quite some time....but fortunately they never opted to come and greet us in our compartment.


2am in a Belgian railway siding wouldn't have been an attractive place to die....though it would have saved us watching a dismal showing by England.
