Oh yes, I'd forgotten that one.

There was a lad I knew and we all referred to him by that name back around 1970.

Not too sure if it was exclusively scouse though, it may well have been more widespread.

Yep wider than Libpool - even used in Mancland believe it or not!!
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

Angonamo... The famous scouse red Indian  :D

Ha ha

Cracker that - was used all the time - usually when someone was bent double,  'puffed out' trying to escape another gang - but never associated it with Tonto and Kemo Sabe!

 ;D ;D

In the same vein

'angaboutaminit


On an entirely different tack

Was that you just 'gollied'?

Haven't heard that in donkeys years

Another one I thought of yesterday when I saw an older bloke with jet black hair was 'he's got two penneth o' pot ash on'

That was always used by my family for anyone with suspiciously coloured hair. My aunty always said that about Mark Hughes even when he was in his 20s

Very good comic was Mick back in the day.

Loved the quick two-liner in the Glasgow cake shop whether that's a custard or a meringue - clever that!

We had a weekend in Blackpool with works sports and social. Mick was the comedian. He asked one of the lads "Where you from?" The lad replied "Liverpool/ Widnes"   .Quick as a flash Miller replied "Fuck that! I wouldn't wanna mow your grass!".
