  1. Looking forward to seeing how this change works in practice. One the face of it I like the idea.
  2. The sad news about Little Richard brought this one to mind:
  3. Loved that jangling guitar sound they had.
  4. I couldn't tell you without comparing the two lists side by side. The stats that caught my eye were the great Mick Crane's. If you include his spell at Leeds he must have played a colossal number of games in his career.
  5. He's first on the amended list. He wasn't on the original list. Somebody must have read Lowdesert's post.
  6. Heart is still in my mouth when Leeds set for the drop goal. What a fantastic day it was. Enjoyed seeing all the games again. Well done the beeb.
  7. Nor me but when you look at the numbers of appearances some of them are so low they'll have been forgotten about.
  8. I know most of those places very well but have probably never been at the right time. The only jars I can recall in Cropton were in the New Inn. There were loads of swifts though. I've cycled across Hatfield Moors many times but you wouldn't catch me out there when it's getting dark. Skipwith Common is well worth a visit for anybody ever in the area.
  9. Crows are always up for a fight. I regularly see them in aerial combat with the buzzards over a nearby field.
  10. If that knowledge is off the top of your head and not googled, I'll be very impressed.
  11. On the same site as the old Hull and ER RU ground. The opposite side is where Hull RU play.
  12. Aye but I suppose it's such a great name that they didn't want to change it once they had a home of their own.
  13. Correct mate, just round the corner from us at Hull & East Riding Sports Club on Chants Ave North.
  14. I always loved them, right from the Autobahn days. They created some fantastic melodies. Another sad loss to the world of music.
  15. Saw them only a couple of years ago. They were a still a fine live band and a great reminder of what an outstanding back catalogue they have. Really sad to hear he's gone.
  16. First swallow this morning. Along with a grey heron, a buzzard and a kestrel.
  17. December the 18th 1979, the last ever BBC2 Floodlit Trophy final. Hull v Hull KR and the crowd packed in so tight at The Boulevard you couldn't move in Threepenny. Straight in Silver Cod afterwards for several celebratory ales. Fantastic night.
  18. It was huge at the time. We had camera crews from all the main networks in the city in the build up to the game. Even BBC Newsnight did a worthy piece on the Trans River Hull rivalry. Of course, the Challenge Cup Final was a much bigger deal back then and had a much higher national profile. Shame it was such a dull game. What a lot of people forget is that Hull were a newly promoted team that season. Just getting to the final was a major achievement (not that it felt it when the final hooter went). Hull also finished third in the league and won the BBC2 Floodlit Trophy. No promoted team has ever come close to matching those achievements (that said it was much easier to make the transition in those days in an entirely semi professional sport). Rovers were already established as one of the top sides in the game and the composure that came with that saw them home for me.
  19. Nothing at all but it was the first time I'd ever watched Tiswas in bed. Which was nice.
  20. Was it ever. My abiding memory of the Boothferry Park test is Les Dyl's attempt to stop Mal Meninga en route to the goal line. Dyl nearly landed on us such was the force of Meninga's hand-off. The Kangaroos were playing a different game to us.
  21. One of my favourite bands at the moment and one of the best live bands I've seen in the last few years. Had a change of singer but the new material seems as good if not even better than ever.
