On behalf of KOTK we did give a donation to the Chris Sievey fund, and I attended the tribute evening last Thursday which gave him a decent send off.
I have noted the Beatles debate on the blog fellas, and (at Tony’s request) would add the following: I first saw them on ITV in about September 1962 when they did ‘Love Me Do’ brilliantly (with John on the mouth organ) on Gay Byrne’s early evening show (Scene at 6.30/People and Places?)
After that it was the Orbison (pindrop)/Beatles (bedlam)/Gerry and the Pacemakers show in 1963 – just after ‘From Me to You’ had gone top.
They changed social attitudes in this country, but you know what? None of them could kick a ball!
So what’s been happening? World Cup’s over and what a job Howard Webb had refereeing THAT match. Thought he should have sent Nige off and how did he miss the corner when a goal kick was given and Spain scored shortly afterwards? Otherwise the old Steve Parish joke is relevant “The referee ruined the game by blowing up for EVERY foul” Love it.
Here at KK We’re trying desperately to finish the ‘Us and Them’
I’m struggling with a few European ground diagrams – Fenerbahce (1968), Airdrie (1970’s), Bologna (!970’s), Borussia M (1970’s), Linfield (1970) Gornik (1970), Honved (1970), Lierse (1969/70), Schalke (1970), Standard Liege (1970’s), Streymur (2008), and Widzew Lodz (1970’s). Anyone ideas – not much found on the net so far.
Just a reminder – next deadline is July 26th – plenty stuff in already for KK 180, usual format for the first of the season, let us know if you’re planning anything, look forward to it
