Fancied a day at the cricket before it all finishes for the season, 25 wickets in the day. Really good day out, cost me £13 for the day and £16 for the train. Pity it's the last game of the season, going to be doing this a lot more next year.
Our strong start out of the blocks in both of those seasons meant b@gger all in how we ended up. We started both seasons on deck of HMS Piss The League, but those first few weeks were as good as it got.

Every time I hear that song I always end up a bit teary eyed. Take me back to a kid at Italia 90 and Gazza, Sir Bobby and Gary Lineker telling him to have a word. If I ever became an actor and needed something to get me crying, I'd probably bung it on.
