  1. Anyone else remember "Bernard the Boot", who featured in a comic in the 1950's (I think it was the Hotspur or the Lion or the Wizard)? He was an Alf Tupper-like guy who played for Dredgford Northern, and worked in the pit. His speciality was sticking the ball under his chin while handing off several opponents.

    Bought a bottle of wine today from Morrisons just because it's called Featherstone. Sad. In the early 80s the Co-op in France had a range of wines called Rochdale.

    You sell your Bentley and buy a Dacia.

    Anyone else remember Huddersfield attempting a re-brand as Barracudas? And the stadium changing from Fartown to Arena 84?
