Just been out to do a bit of shopping and I bumped into one of my boys, (Cadette 14 to 16 age group) I have seen him around the town now and again we would have a chat and a hug, he is now married and is the father to 3 girls, he told me he has become a father again but this time it`s the boy he has been longing for and he has called him Victor after me, nearly cried then and the water is starting to trickle again, some things are worth more than money.




  That is a cracking honour Vic, Lots of people are named after kith and kin or somebody famous which is nice but not significant, but to be named after someone who really impacted their life says a lot about you.  This could be a lovely ending to your book im thinking LOL !!!!  :thumbup

Never in me life did I spit on anyone, and if someone would have spat on me, back in the 80's... oh, no. That wouldn't have went down at all well. Saw Dury a few times though, but best one.... been working in London, driving back to Liverpool, the daft mate driving, got lost. Had an excuse though, roads choka, traffic was horrendous, London half closed down for Charles and Di getting married. Could we fuck get out of London. Driving along, road suddenly full of trendy looking people, something obviously on, starts following them, huge banner across the street.... "FUNK THE WEDDING"

Ian Dury put a free concert on in Crystal Palace bowl to escape all that royal shite. Don't know how the fuck we ended up out there, but brilliant day. Then he was on in Hammersmith that night, never did get home that weekend.

My album was a live performance by the Stiff lot.

Those days, the punk crowd thought it cool to show their approval by spitting on the performers, who often spat back.

Wreckless was MC and kept telling the crowd to knock off the fucking spitting.

It's nice to be back.

Jambutty, I know what they did. I was just sort of saying what I'd have done if it happened to me. Talking of which, I can sort of remember some performer from them days talking about getting hepatitis from all the spit.  Anyway, it was disgusting. But I suppose, it was just angry kids, in angry times, showing it.

Having a music day now. I just can't be arsed with that telly anymore. When I do put it on... Dad's Army, The Avengers, Bonanza, Columbo, I'm turning into a proper aul fella. I'll have to shoot meself if it ever gets to Murder She Wrote or shouting at the kids Turn It Down!

See if you can find the indictment of Ringo into the Rock 'n Roll HOF last night.

Some nice things being said about him as a drummer.

Despite him not even being the best drummer from Liverpool.

Can't remember the last time the telly was on in my house Leo, wasn't in the last couple of months. Watch it sometimes in me da's but only what he has got on.

Jambutty, the crowd in Liverpool, even back then, was not your typical punk crowd, even for the punk bands. I remember seeing the Clash after a Home game one night at the Royal Court, the punks started going off a bit but soon got fucked off and sent packing by the match crowd. Saw something similar at Stiff Little Fingers, who loved playing Liverpool because the crowd was different than elsewhere.

Here you go, bit of morning music and a few that never quite made it, great bands, should be household names...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_KBOajlBhY

Wanted to put the live one up, but the only film I could find is knackered....
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxXJ8iTzmyE

found a live clip of them that works....
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcJbg1MMKXA

Don't know what this is like, couldn't find a live film of them...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ua9nXMwrIEs

Just with you saying the States, John. I seen all these in a club there, Toads in New Haven Connecticut. Brilliant gaff, right in the middle of Yale University. I was never out of there in the 80's. Saw some great bands, usually up an comers, but all hands played there. It was a done thing sort of. I never seen them but the Stones even kicked on tour off in there. And I seen The Cash/Carter family show in there, brilliant, all the family, June running round yelping and screaming, done up like a Squaw. Don't know if that word's taboo but it was great. Brilliant place.

Here's one, I just thought of him, first heard him in there....
https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=james+mcmurtry+we+can%27t+make+it+here

That's to a page, take your pick out of them. The lad's brilliant, hardly heard of, I love the kid. He does some great stuff about working class America. Always makes me laugh, telly over here, only ever shows Yanks as daft an loaded or black and skint and violent. I knew loads of working class yanks, black and white, sound people, no different than ourselves, ordinary people getting by. Fucking telly, you're right John. I think I'll sling this one out of here. I hate it. Here you go watch this one...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWEJPqJtZsk

Right that's it, got to get off me arse and get out or I'll be at it again all day.

That McMurtry fella is the business.

When we did the fundraising for the Paisley memorial we got invited to meet Jesse Paisley at her and Bob's house as she wanted to thank us. We took her flowers and a scrapbook of the whole thing and she told us a few tales of Bob and how she was a teacher in Garston ( taught my brother in law). Let us hold Bob's European cup winners medals and any other memorabilia we wanted to.

She showed us the scrapbooks she had kept (he jibbed Thatcher because he had promised to go to a boxing do) and in one of the scrapbooks was a letter which I read from a woman thanking Bob and the team for nearly winning the league and knowing we would be back stronger next year. It was signed by Mrs Jones and I clocked the address was from Garston and was sure I recognised it.

When I got home I phoned my brother in law and he confirmed it was his old address. The odds of me picking up that scrapbook of the dozens she had and reading that letter must have been huge.

A few months later I got in touch with Graham Paisley and told him of the letter and he kindly got copies which I gave to my brother in law and his brother and sisters. They had lost their mum a few years before to cancer and didn't even know she had written to Bob.

In this one thread, should people read it from start to finish, is most of what people need to know prior to knowing more about Liverpool and the connections to ones soul that enriches the connection to the club and supporting it

People should not leave. It's easy to do and the temptation to do so is everywhere. Staying is harder but ultimately rewarded

That McMurtry fella is the business.

When we did the fundraising for the Paisley memorial we got invited to meet Jesse Paisley at her and Bob's house as she wanted to thank us. We took her flowers and a scrapbook of the whole thing and she told us a few tales of Bob and how she was a teacher in Garston ( taught my brother in law). Let us hold Bob's European cup winners medals and any other memorabilia we wanted to.

She showed us the scrapbooks she had kept (he jibbed Thatcher because he had promised to go to a boxing do) and in one of the scrapbooks was a letter which I read from a woman thanking Bob and the team for nearly winning the league and knowing we would be back stronger next year. It was signed by Mrs Jones and I clocked the address was from Garston and was sure I recognised it.

When I got home I phoned my brother in law and he confirmed it was his old address. The odds of me picking up that scrapbook of the dozens she had and reading that letter must have been huge.

A few months later I got in touch with Graham Paisley and told him of the letter and he kindly got copies which I gave to my brother in law and his brother and sisters. They had lost their mum a few years before to cancer and didn't even know she had written to Bob.

Simpler times.

Lovely and amazing serendipity find mate - great!!
There is nothing wrong with striving to win, so long as you don't set the prize above the game. There can be no dishonour in defeat nor any conceit in victory. What matters above all is that the team plays in the right spirit, with skill, courage, fair play,no favour and the result accepted without bitterness. Sir Matt Busby CBE KCSG 1909-1994

Brilliant that 5times mate. Really enjoyed it. Here's one for you... I've got a mate, Franny Gold, great lad, make a cat laugh, I love him to bits. He's 67 now Fran, but thinks he's 25. He's got 4 brothers. I've only met one, George. Older than Franny, old bastard, cause murder in a one man tent. I do nothing but argue with him, but only cos he likes it. He's never missed a home game since the late 50's, only stopped going to the aways a few years back, when his health wouldn't let him. All the brothers worked on the docks and were/are proper Liverpool mad.

One of them died in Bob Paisley's arms. Back in the 60's. He was only young, took a turn, right behind the dugout. Franny and the other brothers were laughing, telling him to behave, before they realised he was in trouble. Bob Paisley spotted it, dragged him out onto the side of the pitch, gave him the kiss of life, heart massage and that. But the lad died.

Sorry for the sad story. But after yours, I had to tell it... a pure gent Bob. Can you imagine Brendan or any other manager, strolling round Anfield in an aul tatty cardigan and slippers nowadays. Sadly, we'll never see men like them again.

Anyway, sorry to be maudlin. I'm made up you like McMurty. He's a good lad, throw back to working class solidarity.

Near forgot, I came in here to put this up...

Some of yer might have read it. It's brilliant. But I shouldn't have been laughing, as it's quite scary really.
