Re: Bravest thing you have seen.

Having to go on stage in the Christmas school play aged nine wearing some girl's red ribbed tights ('cos that's what they wore in Winter in the early sixties) because I was playing an old fashioned joker.

Re: Robbie Blake on Brian Laws appointmemt

Laws didn't do too bad a job in The Championship. We were just outside the playoffs most of the time. We even won at Barnsley but the next game, a disappointing home defeat to Scunthorpe, saw him sacked.

Howe did a little bit worse, and certainly so in goals conceded!

It would be nice to hear the full story of Coyle leaving and Laws being appointed but I suppose we never will.
