    Maybe It’s called respect.

    Thanks for that! Pure speculation on my part, I assure you.

    Formula One...

    1999. Nurburgring. Rain. Frentzen on pole. He, Irvine, Coulthard & Häkkinen could all still win the Championship. Michael Schumacher two broken legs (from memory) was out after Silverstone. After an incredible race, Stewart come home 1st & 2nd. Hakkinen sneaks 2 pointS which was maybe the difference in getting him the championship. after the 99 season, I gave up on Formula 1. The best was in the past.

    Murder Ballads

    On The Road Again - Canned Heat In my humble opinion, probably the greatest Blues imagery ever put to tape. Alan 'Blind Owl' Wilson (the guy who sings this) died in 1970 of a drug overdose. Dark and sinister, the narrator appears to have killed his Mother & hit the road - forever drifting, with nothing but his own skin. Is 'Blind Owl' a killer never caught? Hence the drug overdose? Musically, the sitar is an interesting intro - but the feel is not at all calm, rather, unsettling; however, its fitting for the ‘mantric’ rolling of the drums, bass, organ and harp backing. *Well, I'm so tired of crying But I'm out on the road again I'm on the road again Well, I'm so tired of crying But I'm out on the road again I'm on the road again I ain't got no woman Just to call my special friend You know the first time I traveled Out in the rain and snow In the rain and snow You know the first time I traveled Out in the rain and snow In the rain and snow I didn't have no fare, or Not even no place to go And my dear mother left me When I was quite young When I was quite young And my dear mother left me When I was quite young When I was quite young She said "Lord, have mercy On my wicked son" Take a hint from me, mama Please don't you cry no more Don't you cry no more Take a hint from me, mama Please don't you cry no more Don't you cry no more 'Cause it's soon one morning Down the road I'm going But I ain't going down That long old lonesome road All by myself But I ain't going down That long old lonesome road All by myself I can't carry you, baby Gonna carry somebody else*

    Man City (A) 2/7/2020 - Premier League - 20:15

    We were the only team to beat City last season as they swept everybody else aside. i guess I expected this, but I hate it when we lose. Watford did the same, but it hurt more because we hadn’t confirmed our status as champs. City will be highly motivated to beat us. What else are they playing for?

    The 30 Year Wait

    In shock. So many memories, so much of my life tied up with this club, and mingled with the blood sweat and tears of my family thru the decades. From the bottom of my heart, I thank everyone involved with LFC, for completing who and what I am.

    Celebrations? I am sitting here balling my eyes out. When I can get up again, I’ll make a pot of tea with my Mum and Dad’s teapot. This one’s for them, and my Bro, Bob. We’ve fucking done it. All the great names......all the players...the history...the 96....we’re back baby and nobody does it better.

    Other Football - 2019/20

    Might as well win it today. No reason to hang around waiting. We know we’ve thrashed everybody, we know we’re the greatest club in the universe. We can’t gather to celebrate even if we won it at Anfield. Yesterday’s destruction of Crystal Palace was the Title winning game , in my opinion. if Chelsea don’t hold out, and lose, then so be it, but if the a Title is ours in 45 minutes time, I say HELL YES. I never thought my family would be just about all gone before this momentous occasion. My Brother, Dad, Grandad - all stood on the Kop in their day. My Mum went to many games, and said the greatest visit to Anfield for her was Kenny’s Testiminial. Only my younger brother and I will witness this, but every one of our family are right here in spirit.

    This VE Day thing.

    Apparently the Russians never approved of ‘The World At War’ and so produced their own TV series called ‘The Unknown War’. Just as epic too. Narrated by Burt Lancaster

    This VE Day thing.

    Team effort I think, but I’ll acknowledge the huge contribution from Uncle Sam, yes.

    The Runcorn Thread

    Just doesn’t ring any bells. However, I googled and I think it’s the Holy Trinity C of E which was closed in 1969, ironically, the year I moved to Frodsham Secondary Modern having failed my 11+
