Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Well in an odd kind of way last night's Anfield game reminded me of those fast, open third-division games I used to see as a lad at Gigg Lane, full of howlers committed by hairy-arse lads but with plenty of thrills to match the spills. Bury 5 Rotherham 0 was one such that I remember. Freezing cold, standing in the paddock, everybody charging round to the other end at half time, just enough time to grab a bag of Smith's crisps and a cup of hot bovril, trying not to drop your wooden rattle... Happy days!
