    True story
    2 mates they were about 12/13 couldnt get/ afford a ticket to watch the boys play at Highbury in an FA replay so they climbed into the luggage compartment of the team coach and traveled all the way from our ground to Highbury and when the coach pulled up inside the ground got out and jumped into the crowd, geniuses :thumbsup:

    Running along next to a hoop and hitting it with a stick to keep in going.

    Stealing gentleman's pocket watches.

    Singing and dancing in harmony with the other ne'ar do wells and never having a clean face.

    Being starved by Harry Secombe.

    Playing the first game console/computer games.
    Back then , the graphics were amazing, or so we thought.
    The question of “ Do you think that games will be like real life, one day?” , asked by many young gamers…;)
