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

Are you staying Sussex Billie ? We’re moving to the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire. I think my nearest league side is probably Cheltenham Town , an upgrade ( just ! ) on Crawley Town . Haven’t moved house for 16 years ( we moved around Crawley a bit before then ) so it’s been a pretty hectic few mont...

Harry Kewell on the Brink

I’m moving house on Friday and leaving Crawley after living here 20 years but Harry Kewell may be gone before me ! Clearly hated by the fans

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 .

Free Fire and Water Would love to have seen them live , but like Norm , I’ve seen Bad Company a few years back . I also saw Paul Rodgers with Queen and it wasn’t at all bad to be fair . Probably someone of lesser stature than Rodgers may not have been able to pull it off ( I remember how many failed...

Re: Greatest of all time

I googled this out of interest and generally the top 3 were Pele , Maradona and Messi . The majority seemingly giving Pele the nod over the other 2 . My own preference is Cruyff . If for no other reason than I was privileged to see him play once at Wembley . It was breathtaking and I've never seen a...
