- Munich Olympics
- Bloody Sunday

- The average house price was £7,374
- Newcastle United beat Manchester United at Old Trafford
So, will this run of form be broken tomorrow? - I'd doubt it, but as ever, I live in hope. After a farce with the box office the tickets have arrived this morning (why is it the NUFC box office never quite get it right? Was it such a suprise that the season was starting again??) so I'll be there to witness what will most probably be a humiliation.
Still, I've had a little flutter (the old adage about a fool and his money being easily parted) and at 90-1 here's hoping for a repirse of 1972. I'm just off to dig out my flares, Bay City Rollers tartan scarf and find some platform shoes... So if you see someone wobbling down the Chester Road tomorrow - that'll be me.
