Have not worn anything else but docks for the past 20 years (it's those size 13's LD - doc shoes are so comfortable)

Love our local Toby carvery - all you can eat for £7.95/ Worth going LD if only to watch the spectacle of greedy wankers piling their plates up high and leaving half of it even though you can go back up as many times as you want

With you on Game of Thrones although I do hear it blaring out when Heyho jnr has it on

To coin an Old Codger saying 'nowt happened' but I was 'friendly' with a Rochdale lass when I was at Poly. She sat on my knee for half the night in her wedding dress when she got married and we still exchange Christmas Cards. Not that I have seen her for 25 years. Oh and she rung me a few months back as well which I don't thing went down too well with Mrs H.

I went to Hull most recently last Thursday. Some of the best fish and chips I've ever had. (Cave Street chippy.)

Fish special - big portion of hake, chips and mushy peas/gravy/curry sauce - £3.50.

If you haven't had hake, give it a go. There's a reason it's one of, if not the most popular fish in Spain.

Hake is delicious, sadly most plebs that go into chip shops won't try anything out of the ordinary.  I had battered mackerel and chips in Weymouth last year, that was sublime and as mackerel is abundant in the sea it's also sustainable.

Just come back from Dorset and we had mushy pea fritters. Doesn't get much better.
Plastic Man

I don't think I've ever seen mushy pea fritters on offer, let alone sampled one. Something to keep a look out for.

Further to my post about the F&Cs I had in Hull, one additional factor that I forgot to mention was that they were fried in dripping, something that one does not come across often enough these days.

A majority of places use vegetable oil, which does produce a crisper chip (if that is your preference), but they tend to be nondescript, while dripping adds flavour.

This place in Netherton Huddersfield uses dripping, its excellent. As you say, the chips are a bit soggy but taste fantastic

I've been to Notts County, me. I don't remember it being overly exciting other than"one to tick off of the list."

Don't think I'm quite at the eighty level (unless you count European grounds or new/replacement stadia), but I must've been to at least fifty-odd watching Leeds back in the day.

Weirdly, I've never seen us play away to Huddersfield or Halifax.

I was done for speeding here (going to get a "free" haircut - don't ask), my dog was sat in the passenger seat and it's entirely possible I had my "Guinness" six nations rugby shirt on.

Tell you what, I had a prawn masala on Sunday, admittedly I didn't choose to have it and it came via Aldis, but it was bloody lovely and I don't like fish curry normally either.

I now expose myself to the risk of being accused as being a deliberately obtuse pedant: prawns are crustaceans, not fish.

At least the curry wasn't described as being two fishy (sic).

All you fish curry naysayers should try a goan fish curry if your ever lucky enough to happen upon 'em as we are at the green man fest. The goan mackerel with dhall is amazing. As they say. Once you've had Goan Mack, you won't go back. Or they will when i sell them my marketing skills.

Cannot understand that one at all

I know what you mean though, I think my first visit to the Angel Inn was this century and I don't recall it before which is odd as the Ship and Pack Horse and Horse n Trumpet were my regulars for a long time.
Late Doors

Same here, i was a relatively recent convert. Used to start in the Whip. Do them all up Briggate (or so we thought) round the corner and usualy end up in the Bank or Stumps. No idea there was a pub up there.

No where near a regular codge. Maybe once a month for a few years we'd get the train over on a Friday evening and start off in the whip. It was usually quiet at that time but i understand if could get dodgy in there. Think the Royal oak is still going. Me n mdm were in last season sometime and i recall it still being there recently
