Not a very nice thing to say "Harold Williams he was a bad tempered Welshman" Harold was a family friend & I can't praise him enough can you keep your opinions to yourself please

Apoologies Mick but i speak as i find, he not only used to shout and bawl at his wife in the pub but when it was drinking off time i have known him slam down the piano lid on the lads fingers. Once again sorry to have upset you.

Strange how football matches have had to take seconds to whatever the TV. companys decide. Eg. Arsenal are playing Leeds in London (FA. cup draw) kick off 8.15, pm Monday night so Fans will have to travel the 200 miles and not get back to Leeds until the early hours of the morning whilst Liverpool will play Everton, kick off at 4.p.m. on the day before and these teams are only a few miles apart, plus travelling on a Sunday would be so much easier .....never mind it's only the Fans

I have found I.T.V.hub and there are some great matches on. I am watching Germany v. Russia at the moment. It is £3.99 monthly if you have it without adverts and free if you have it with

I am surprised that no one seems to have posted about United's push for promotion which should be decided this week. also the passing of Jackie Charlton who spent all of his playing career for his home town team. Although born in the North East he called Leeds his home after marrying a Middleton lass

I liked the interview where Jack said he couldn't play football, unlike Bobby, but he could stop other people playing football.
It used to be said that the statue of the Black Prince had been placed in City Square , near the station, pointing South to tell all the southerners who've just got off the train to b****r off back down south!

The other brother who lived in Leeds was Gordon Charlton, a very mild sort of lad I only knew him slightly. I do know he worked for the Water Board in Dock Street and i often thought that Yorkshire
Television could have done a small interview/ story etc. and when ever i met him he was always extremely polite

It's either that nobody wants to count chickens after previous disappointments OR among the very few regular posters on this forum, nobody's much bothered.

Either way, they've done it and well done!
