Imagine the internet being around in ‘85 when Henson dropped the logo from the shirt. I loved that kit as a ten year old kid but I guess their was many a raised eyebrow.

I had the full kit in yellow, wore it with pride all around L'Estartit on holiday after relegation.

Got a few strange looks as a 40 year old 2016.
The other week, we were driving through l'Estartit looking for somewhere to have lunch. SWMBO informed me that  one of the top-rated restaurants on Trip Advisor was "O'Malley's friendly Irish restaurant". So we kept driving. The best of the Costa Brava is elsewhere. :-)

Suspect it’s because they lost the Japanese copyright case and nobody in their right mind would have a heraldic rampant lion facing right.

Shows a lack of pride and heritage.

Lots of people will say it doesn’t matter but I think it does given it’s about identity, heritage and continuity.

Wanker! ;-)

Tossa de Mar is quite nice, Bégur is select, Cadaqués is pretty and has added Dali, Matisse & co, Cap de Creus, St Martí d'Empuries has Roman ruins, Palfrugell...

I prefer the inland towns (Pals, Paratallada, Toroella...)

I would avoid Lloret, l'Estartit, Roses, Escala etc. but if you like the touristy stuff like you get at Arenal in Majorca* then they are fine.

*Another place where the beauty is not where the Brits and Germans are. :-)

The Queen faced left, and the King faces right. Maybe our future king had a word....

They change direction after each monarchs death. The only time they didn’t change it was for nazi-sympathiser narcissist Edward VIII because he wanted to show his “good side”.

The place was half built in 1987, used to have to clamber over a pile of rubble by the beach to get to the old town. Primary memory is fighting a spannish kid in the arcade who'd tried to push me off Wonderboy

And who's to say which way is facing forward?  It's just ridiculous.

If you say that it’s facing the same way as the writing, then I suppose it is facing forward.
I hadn't thought of it that way.  It feels like a stretch to me but it's the best explanation I've heard.

My first ever holiday with friends rather than family was 2 horrific weeks in Calella in 1984, aged 16. To make it ever worse, we went by coach.

One of our group couldn't stand it and went home after a week. I wish I had. It was awful, we just ended up fighting amongst ourselves all the time, and the area was an absolute shit hole.

My first lads' holiday was just up the coast from there in Lloret de Mar. What a fucking shithole that was as well back then (it might still be for all I know). The people I was with insisted on going to the same English café every night for pie, chips and mushy peas. I did get to indulge in a fair bit of what might be descibed by Footy as immoral behaviour though. And I hardly spoke a word of Spanish the whole time I was there.

We went by coach too as the old man didn't like flying. The scenery was great as a kid to be honest, but you'd be fucking baking in there coming into Spain in the morning after driving the night through France with nothing but cans of lukewarm coke or those crappy vending machine squash drinks.

I've never heard of anyone using their todger as a reason not to get on a plane before.
