  1. Someone obscure like that Iranian chap who has scored an absolute rake of goals? Can’t remember his name. Ali something? or Tim Cahill? or someone from the olden days when folk used to play until they were ancient, ie 50s, eg Stanley Matthews
  2. Yes! I had a niggling doubt in the back of my mind when I typed that. Thanks for clarifying and apologies for my gross error. No idea if the GF is still on the go or what happened to WA
  3. Great thread indeed. (Much better than the pish you guys normally bang on about / bicker over 😜) Got Match routinely. League ladders were magic but struggled to keep them up to date by the end of September. Loved the sticker albums. I think the 1986 WC album had weird plastic cards where the corners tucked into slots on the page, rather than stickers. Tried to recreate childhood memories by getting the 2016 Euros sticker album (which was a bit shit because there was no Scotland page) and, to the astonishment of my wife, bought about 500 stickers off amazon then played swaps with a couple of other sad middle aged men at work. Completed the Albania page but hadn’t heard of any of their players. Wasn’t into Roy of the rovers so much but do remember Viz doing a send up of it where Roy is on a night out after winning (of course) and ends up pulling a page 3 girl . “Roy scores for the second time that day”, read the caption. Anyone remember Wee alickie on the back page of the green final? Oor Wullie type character whose mood depended on how Aberdeen got on earlier that day. Great bloke. Remember him being unimpressed when Aberdeen drew 1-1 with 10 man Celtic in the 84 cup final. GF went to press before the dons romped to (yet another) cup final win after extra time. Didn’t like football monthly. IIRC that was the one entirely devoted to English football except for a half page “round up” of Scottish football near the back.
  4. Yep, sorry - I’m another one getting there Euro capitals starting with B mixed up! Good to know we’ve got it narrowed down to just 2 cities
  5. Do we know if the final will definitely be in Oslo / Bucharest? I know we’ve previously played in Molde / Novi sad
  6. Doctor: You’ve got to stop masturbating. Patient: But why?? Doctor: Because I’m trying to examine you.
  7. Was that when they ran out and booted the ball away as Brazil were preparing to take a free kick? I gather the Brazilians then fell about laughing at the stupidity of their leopard bearing opponents
  8. Following on from the admiration for Negrete’s goal in 86, I remember Soviet Union scoring a number ridiculously good goals in that World Cup, including a 6-0 routing of Hungary. Igor belanov and vasily rats (great name) amongst the scorers. Can anyone remember an international team having anything on the front of their shirts before the soviets’ “CCCP”? I think wee numbers on the front came in for Euro 92 or WC94
  9. Being deleterious certainly is a reason to ban something, or at least consider banning it. Driving is a necessity of modern life and the vast majority of journeys undertaken do not result in death or injury. The purpose of boxing is to repeatedly hit your opponent in the head until you knock them out. We shouldn’t be surprised at the incidences of brain injury / death. Promote martial arts instead. Far more useful in a ficht anyway. Smoking should be banned too. Only reason it isn’t is that people have been doing it for years and certain people make an awful lot of money out of it (a bit like boxing). If smoking never existed but someone invented it today, no way it would be allowed.
  10. Good man. Only the bookies win in the end and there’s far more important things in life to spend your money on, as you well know
  11. Sorry - just seen this. I’m listening to it via the bbc website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/football/49078351 Seems to work fine. Need to register to prove you’ve got a tv licence. Otherwise, it’s fine
