Orwell eh. Here's something attributed to Stalin, although not with any certainty. Trump might like it.

Glad to see the word 'cove' back in business. Very Breadmanesque. Very Happy
That is an interesting quote, Boncey. Trumpy's sure to like it. I expect he was aware of it.

I have heard of this Breadman being mentioned before. If he disagreed with the lynch mob types he must've been a goodie, but did he? Wasn't there only Sluffy really?

Breadman, a goodie? Might be pushing it a little, certainly in Sluffy's eyes. You've never met him then?

Small chap, looks like Danny DeVito.

Nope. Don't know him, Rigid Roger, Stagnant Sally, Inflexible Ian or Grannie Annie. But I did know Tanya's hubby when he was MD of a large farm feed company based in North Lancs.

Old Rigid gets better. 'Technically' 56 years old. Wrestles crocodiles. Races cheetahs, and wins.

But did his back in tying his shoelaces. The less I know about Stagnant Sally, the better.

You never know, Boncey. Don't judge a book by its cover and all that.

Talking book covers, I think it was Percy Young's 1961 edition of Bolton Wanderers that I borrowed from the Central Library all those years ago.

I'd have been in my teens but the book left me with a favourable impression of Young. The more interesting bits are how the club's history linked in with social history and I like the way he went to some trouble to research it all. He also seemed to me to have a fondness for the club and sincere appreciation of the help staff at Burnden had provided whilst doing his research.

Cricket was always seen as the gold standard in regard to books about sport, with poor old footy seen to be the down market poor relation. Young was also a composer, organist, conductor, and a good Labour man to boot. cheers 
He also wrote passable biographies of Vaughan Williams and Elgar. Talented bugger.
For what it's worth, I think football related books have now surpassed cricket in terms of quality, and long may it continue.

We've had a Christmas break, the end of transition, a New Year holiday, Brexit uncertainty, and now were in the throes of another record-breaking rise in Covid cases and deaths, but during all the time I've been off-air, (as it were), the one big question for me was, 'Is Nat missing me' ?  Very Happy

Mr Pig, get your arse back on here after you've had a short break. You'll feel a lot better for it, (I do).

Anyone remember Ronnie Barker in The Navy Lark where he would respond in a dimwitted type delivery from Naval Intelligence, "This is intelligence speakin' "?

I remember it. Jon Pertwee was very good in it too. His Commander Weatherby always has me on the floor.
