That,s right some of the jams are marras you know long thick and bent no taste so not liked a lot. Some with very rough skins. Some are so heavy they need a wheel barrow to take them to the pub.

Wow wind your neck in jamboy !
You Wuk coalminers were given that name by Wuk steel workers because the miners couldn't afford meat in their sarnies--the steel men were paid more than their counterparts in the pits. Don't be ashamed of it jamboy, for me as a pitman in Haven and Workington I know which was the hardest and most dangerous job and the most admired---colliers. As a consequence Wuk miners were always referred to as jameaters.
If you worked in the pits then you will appreciate that!

Well that's one side of the story Westerner. My grandad ( who was a miner as was my dad) told me a different one. But this could drag on for years arguing about it. I suppose you worked down the pit given your comments.

Hi Abu, I went to the pit straight from school in 1962 with my Dad mainly at Haig but I "retired" to bnfl in 1986 when Haig was finally put to bed. Got to say there was more than me with unashamed tears rolling down my face including many from the Highside. My Dad was long time dead by then but I'm sure he would have been wiping the salt water away too!

Get yourself on google (you know? That place on your computer box thing that tells you stuff when you ask it) and have a look at what a troll is, you seem to fit that description just right, even if you are one or two hundred years older than the average internet troll. I would've thought a 'man' of your advancing years would have grown up enough to not come across as a bit of a plonker, clearly things happen a bit slower on the other side

Back on topic....the kick off time has been changed on the board outside the ground
