Was at Upton Park West Ham v Arsenal giving Charlie dogs abuse. He just turned, grinned, put two fingers up and then made a zero sign with finger and thumb. Yeah, you got it, Arsenal 2-0 winners.

Hi Cess, long time no speak. I was looking through some old Leeds Academy stuff and it reminded me of the good "old" days. Just wondered how you are.

Remember Colin very well, specially when he was taken on by Derby County. Bit of a celeb in our area then. Lived a few doors up from me in Gloucester Road, Netherton. I remember how proud his dad was.
