 Yesterday we lifted the Cup and Morgan was as outstanding as ever by providing the winning goal against our close rivals , who we might not see on league duty again for another decade.   Weve seen many young players leave before really achieving anything tangible in the stripes. Many have left to try their luck down South. This kid has his head screwed on, and has a chance to really make it big, without having to leave home, or leave family and friends. He leaves us having helped secure a championship, and the last thing he did at home was to score the winner against Morton, before winding them up something rotten. Hes scored great goals, has contributed greatly.

I really hope he gets his chance at Celtic, shines, and like another true talent there in Kieran Tierney, becomes a Scottish international and secures a life changing move to the EPL. I am sure, absolutely certain, that if he turns out against us, this will be different from some players who join opposition teams and are jeered. He deserves, and Im sure will receive, a warm welcome back.

A sixteen million pound move to  Southampton, Everton or Newcastle, would be pleasing

 Thanks for the tangible memories Lewis, good luck at Celtic.  https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/43763117

He was actually 35 when he made that but sadly that is still maybe 15/20 years younger than most of us.

35 is a man's prime, Martin! Anyway, I reckon you've got to be in good shape and be of a certain height to look good in a light coloured peacoat. Nothing against the coat itself, in fact it's stunning.

I asked my son , who is 20 and a big fan of Caine and that movie . He reckoned I would look good in that jacket . .



So I have spoken to my suede tailor. . :P

Armor Lux have announced their Spring sale today. Ends 30 April. Some big discounts and I have partaken this morning  ;)

Good shout, Mark, tho' Armor Lux always seem to be offering discounts ("braderies") of one kind or another. Maybe we should warn about their NO SALES phase, lol.

I have never been inspired to buy from them , I think I have been spoiled by TKMaxx. . bugger.  :D

You should take a look anyway, Simon, there are some heavily discounted classic breton tops, and they're quality. The downside is their shipping fees, a bit over the top if I recall correctly.

Yes mi hermano , I did have a look , however they didn't have anything I fancied . I don't own any Breton tops I consider them the to be the clothes of the younger Mod , similar to the shiny suit. Also , I don't wear the horizontal stripes they seem to favour , must be a French thing . I only do vertical stripes. .


. .also the spell checker on here seems to favour the American spellings . Are we in the U.S. ?

Could have been anything . With Wiggans being a Jam fan , maybe it was the latest compilation album from the Jam. . 8)

Very interesting. While some of the garments are unmistakably late 60 (I couldn't get away with a suede sand p-coat!), most suits are kosher mod fare.

This one. .

. .I know I couldn't get away with this one. .


There is also a scene where Camp Freddy wears a suit with covered buttons , I think it is the boardroom scene but I canny find the pic. .
