  9. Quick Update H has had an operation, all went well and he is a bit more comfortable. Typically, he was reminiscing before the op with his son in law about seeing Rimmer and Robinson back in the 1930's at the first game he attended. Lynn, his daughter and John , his son in law have asked me to Thank you all for concern and sympathy you have displayed, and appreciate all the good wishes shown.
  10. Harry's op was cancelled last night as he is still bleeding from his broken nose. Being assessed again today, he is having 3 plates in his jaw. Went to his first game in 1936, and before that , used to watch the games from his bedroom window before the stands were developed. Still drives himself to home games, calls in for a pint then makes it to the upper section of the North. At 89. Remarkable man

  16. Shipp. Played in it twice. Peterborough, Lincoln and Cambridge first year, Peterborough, Cambridge and Huddersfield the second year
  17. Malta was pretty bizarre. Three teams played in the same game . Fist 45 mins Wednesday v Matese team. Second 45 mins Maltese team 1 v Matese team two, then Wednesday v Team 2 for another 45 mins. Same format a couple of days later, and we got beaten on penalties after one half of football. Winning the Shipp cup by beating Cambridge away 5-2 in '76, happy days Crewe 1 Wednesday 8 1990 including a hat-trick by Hirsty. Queen of the South in 1980. (+Kilmarnock a few days later). Sid v Mr Bogie
  18. IF, and it is an If, we go abroad it will be The Netherlands. If not, we are staying in the UK. Heard Wrexham, And a trip North to Edinburgh and Dundee. Not ITK or owt, but heard this from sources who have been correct for the last 10 years and more
  19. There is a pub near the station , table table bar called the Bluebrick which is ok for away fans. The ground is only a shortish walk, and the bars between the station and the ground are usually packed, and home fans only. We tend to stay in Birmingham as long as possible, get the last train into Wolves. You would like to think their fans are all in a celebratory mood, but be careful near the subway as there is often a flashpoint there. Can be a bit territorial, but hopefully you should be OK with a 15 year old lass. Hope this helps. Enjoy the game
