My owd fella has had two attempts at making his own beer one tasted so sour, the other exploded and blew the windows out of his shed and me mams greenhouse. 
He just makes wine now. I’ll drop you a bottle off

I'm drying out for a few months atm, but ta.

I may be decorating soon though so I'll keep the kind offer in mind...

As an aside, in Italy the supermarkets sell bottles of fresh pressed Grape Juice in Watercooler sized bottles.

Folk buy them, sling a bit of yeast and a bit of sugar in, make a hole in the screwcap and stick an airlock in, and about a couple of months later - the finest wines available to humanity are...

 

 

...in the shops there, but no need, as you have about 80 litres of gutrot in the shed that won't even blind you.

As they did at Burnden that wonderful Christmas in 80. 🤣

1978 pal. 21st December 1978 to be exact. We then did the double on them the following April.

Anyone who didn’t go to that match or in fact wasn’t even born, look at that photo of Frank scoring the second goal. Look at their positions in the photo and wonder how he scored. I’ll explain later.

Frank was through on goal with only Gary Bailey to beat. Frank fainted to go left, then flicked the ball with the outside of his right foot and the ball went past Bailey’s left into the back of the net.

I was in the stand above the Bolton fans in the scoreboard end where the goal was scored. Tickets bought through my United connections. Glorious night. Liverpool fans will be celebrating tonight but nothing like we did that night. F3C6D15E-9E33-4CDB-81C4-2225110F2BFF.jpeg.50679599cab130da09ddac65d818dcb9.jpeg

I'd love to see footage of the home and away games that season but it's just never going to happen is it.

It would be great to see it but for me, I have my memories. No one will ever take that away.
We now live in an era where everything is available online.  
Not sure whether that’s good or bad. 
Is a book better than a film?

Depends who's written it 😀 

Your description of the goal above is great, sounds brilliant.

I remember most of what went on in the sixties and seventies, not sure about anything after that. 😊 

Actually, I remember pretty much most of everything until that bloke who’s name I won’t repeat came into our lives and turned it all upside down.

Onwards and upwards 👍
