Sunday papers , does anyone bother any more


Recommended Posts

Since my teens I've once in a blue moon bought The Daily or Sunday Sport - very much dependent on how filthy the cover girl looks.

Shaun Ryder did a column years ago and he namechecked me - very proud. 😀

Used to get the Sunday Express and read the match reports then recycle bin it - only bought it to do the supplement's £1000 crossword; never sent it off though.

The Pink was Manc and The Buff Bolton. Growing up in L/H, the newsagents sold both and it gave me as much pleasure as a whites win to walk in and say “Buff please”

Nah, they're always there, they just move them around a bit

Poppers, and lube. He’ll make a killing

Mainly widowed pensioners he does best off. Have to show him the Dolly Parton pics , although as a randy 14 1/2 year old probably wouldn't blink at half a chance.

I used to do coupons as a kid - lied about my age, nice earner for one nights work.

I'd also stick the odd 'Spot The Ball' down a grid if I adjudged it to be astronomically unlikely to be a winner. Trouser the stake.

I got my comeuppance though - a punter killed my pet kestrel.

Edit: The National Lottery launch killed off The Football Pools almost overnight - used to earn 12.5% of the take, which after the lottery was next to fuck all - fucked it off within weeks.

When I was still drinking & whatnot at away games, I'd call round at my parents on the Sunday & my dad who was mad keen would ask about the game, so i had to call in Asda or the newsagents on the way up & have a quick read through the Sunday paper match reports to get some idea

I used to buy the Guardian but whether it went too far left or i went to the right, i got sick of it & can't remember the last time i bought any paper.

BiL buys a paper every day and two on a Sunday. As an ex-printer he does it out of principle. Problem for me is if I pick them up and read them I already know so much from reading it online the previous day. They’ll die off soon enough. Even my 83 year old mum reads the BEN on her iPad

Used to love doing the pools with my Dad and then sitting through the football results on Grandstand on a Saturday afternoon

Was always Vernons. He hated Littlewoods - think he had some business fall out with the Moores family?

The Blackpool gazette always had a green too. 

We always had the Manchester Evening news and pink in our house as they sold it at a newsagents in town and it was the closest my dad could get.

My aunt used to post Mondays BEN to us every week.
