Remember Buff being printed in the back of a van on Manny rd?  By the time you got on yer bus the print was all smudged off.

As a kid, I always wondered how it was published so quickly.

Yep, there was always two editions.

The one with all the final scores down the side got printed after the final whistle.

Then another one got delivered about 6pm with match reports on the front & back pages.

I used to sit by the letter box waiting for the later edition to drop in.

I wouldn't know as i am not old enough to remember it.

Ive always been a technology fella myself, we had a TV (world of sport and Dickie 'Brown suit' Davies) unlike some of ya, then we had ceefax and teletext, the Buff was for peasants 😀

Aye, the van was outside the college on Manny Rd & the first Buffs had a match report up to about the 75th minute & the final scores in a stop press column down the side, with like you say, still damp ink.

I'm guessing it was after the Buff packed in, for a while a chap used to come in the town centre pubs, Saturday evening, selling the Pink with the final scores in. I think the last football results paper i saw was the Green in Sheffield .

Then promptly rolled it up and twatted opposition fans with it.

The "Millwall brick ", an old craft handed down from father to son.

Never saw the college one as I was heading the other way, but I'm almost sure there was a van on the top corner of the car park, sort of level with the lever end

Unless they were hiding in Stalybridge or failed to turn up near Salford Crescent.

Always baffled me as a kid how my dad bought a Buff from the local paper shop on the way back from the match. Took me years to realise that the match report wasn’t quite complete

Used to be known as a Millwall Hammer. They bought broadsheet newspapers, ulfolded them at centre pages and rolled up diagonally. Then folded the resulting tube in half. The fold really is hard as an iron bar.

Used to get the no 42 back to Walkden and the Buff was already in the shops.

Yes but can you stick a bit of podcast on your chin when you've cut yourself shaving before turning out Satdiy night?

Half of the pub used to have half of the buff stuck to their face.

The other half were women.
