@MJF9 - thinking about the 80s it just occurred to me that I’ve been to 2 FA Cup finals - West Ham v Liverpool in 2006 and (a chance freebie for) Everton v Watford in ‘84. I also saw your blue noses (again, purely by chance) beat Spurs 4-1 at Elland Road in ‘95 I think, when iirc Daniel Amokachi scored a hat-trick. I think I’m your lucky omen!

Top work Maynard! I’m going to ping Ancelotti see if he’ll sign you up as our mascot for the cup game tomorrow v the Mancs! 

Great result v Watford and get in there Amo! 

I was at Wembley in 85 to watch them beat us in extra time so we missed the treble. Pretty sure Kendall and his boys had massive hangovers from partying after winning the European Cup Winners Cup in Rotterdam in midweek ‘cos we were otherwise the best team ever that year. 

Are you a West Ham fan then?

Here’s the Christmas present I had wrapped and waiting for @Double 0 Soul when he ventured down to pre-Tier 4 London last week. In a fit of rage and fog of tears due to his no-show, I sent it to @hoggreaser instead. Anyway, the link’s there for anyone who wants to purchase themselves a belated Christmas brutalist architectural guide to t’north.

I used to be, once upon a time, but pretty much stopped going around 2010 once our youngest was born. I handed in my season ticket and only go every now and then. I prefer to watch rugby league these days!

Were you one of the ‘enthusiastic’ Hammers fans who greeted us off the football special for a midweek game at Upton Park... must have been early 80s??? What a great ground - felt like I was on the pitch. Can’t remember the score but can remember the raucous welcome and police escort to the ground! Happy days.

Good show on the book, looks a proper cracker, perhaps you should give it to Mrs MJF9 instead, I bet she’d love it!

Midweek games at that age, shouldn’t you have been at school? The only thing I’d have been getting stuck into was my Latin homework - “Nil satis nisi optimum” I think :laugh2:

Didn’t get many chances to go away in them days so had to jump on it. I might have to give the book to Mrs MJF9 to distract from the little prezzie EMS are bringing me for being a good boy this year. Nothing but the best is good enough for her :P

Do tell what you’re getting yourself! I’m on a no buy policy and enjoying making inroads to my non-EU ‘denim mountain’, just started wearing the SC Okis I bought 4.5 yrs ago.

It's a surprise!  I've done OK on the 'no-buy jeans until May 2021 then review' policy.  Only caved in / forgot once on Yahoo Auctions when I got the M41001 Canes without the patch. It's a good job jackets weren't in the policy though as that's been a different story.
