Any mention of sorting the basics, like being able to wash and dry your hands in the toilets, or it taking less than 20 mins to buy a beer?

If you explain to The club why you need to dry your hands, and pay them 20 quid, they will give you a paper towel.

What was the name of that pub down Curzon Street way that was one of the first selling Sol in a bottle with a quarter of lime in the neck? They had a room with a dentist's chair and some lass with tequila and tonic water in holsters would pour it into your mouth and spin you right round baby right round like a record baby. Late Eighties, early Nineties?

Railway.

I just missed a half-ender hitting me outside there in 1987 after we'd beaten that lot 2.1. Somewhere under Millenium Point now.

1664 in the UK is Heineken. Elsewhere it's Carlsberg.
Not anymore- Carlsberg in the UK now too (as of the last couple months) . If you have any old 1664 they're mild collector items

I remember The Railway, but BE’s era passed me by. PW’s 1987 reminisces strike a chord though. I think of it as the Vietnam game. We got the upper hand I’d say, although I wasn’t by The Railway.

One of my Zulu mates says ‘every dog has his day’ when I remind him of these occasions, but it’s surprising how many days we had in the golden age of the Zulus.

We're just lucky they couldn't find Sherlock Street.

The adidas deal must have been in the wings from before Castore's faux-pas with the shirts last summer/autumn, given what Heck says about the timeframe involved. Was he always going to rip-up the Castore deal and the wet shirts gave him an easy out?

He said they were behind on design development so I took from that that the Adidas deal was rushed though. Perhaps it has come a year earlier than planned, after the wet shirt issue. But like you hinted at, a tap-in for Heck.

It's clear that Unai has made Heck's job a lot easier.

It will give the disinterested staff a change of beer taps to stare blankly at.

In the little space that opened in the North Stand for a while this season the little bar had one bloke serving cans, and the next customer was helping pour the orders for him to speed up the queue.

It was very civilised.

We went in there a few times, it was really good.
