Re: Greatest Manager Of All Time

I googled this and it was Ferguson every time . And his achievements at Aberdeen ending the Old Firm domination ( at the time ) cannot be overlooked .

Re: The things you detest about Christmas

I was in the same boat mate spending over thirty years in retail management. In the end I had to get out before I had a nervous breakdown Welcome back Billie :tup: how did the house move go ?

Re: The things you detest about Christmas

As a retired retailer , my two pet hates were being the last person out of the shop on Xmas Eve ( anything between 8 and 9pm ) . Or being key holder over Xmas . I’ve spent many an Xmas Day in store sorting out alarm problems , freezers and fridges breaking down etc .

Re: Rodney Bewes

Grew up watching Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads . Loved it . Funny and occasionally very moving . Read on the news that James Bolam and Rodney Bewes fell out 40 years ago and haven’t spoken since . How sad .

Re: Harry Kewell on the Brink

Haven’t moved house for 16 years ( we moved around Crawley a bit before then ) so it’s been a pretty hectic few mont...

Re: Rest in Peace, Malcolm Young

They were great live , although would have loved to have seen Bon Scott . I was going to see them again last year but cancelled when Brian Johnson had to quit because of hearing problems . Probably now time for them to call it a day .

Re: Brentford v Leeds - Team,News,Reports & Ratings

I remember reading David Niven’s book “ Bring on the empty Horses “ . He was very good friends with Errol Flynn . He said of him “ you always knew exactly where you were with Errol because he always let you down “ . Sums up my ( and I suspect a number of others) relationship with Leeds United .

Re: Kewell vs Ronnie

Unfortunately Kewell manages my home town club Crawley so I do hear quite a bit from him in local media . Still given where Crawley are in League Two , it shouldn’t be too long before he’s binned .
