Turin

Flights booked, visiting Turin for a week late July, it's research for a new book what I is intending to write.  Haven't booked a hotel yet.

Anyone here stayed in Turin before, any tips or advice on the place etc?  We'll be visiting Juventus' Museum and stadium too but so far, the club clearly doesn't want to correspond with me so it's difficult to make firm plans as yet.

Speak to Mr. Bridger. He knows his way around the highways and byways of Turin. Have a great trip Codge and good luck with the research. Do you need a lacky to carry you typewriter?

I have 5 lackies going with me mate, but thanks for that.  BTW I'm not sure Bridger knew Turin very well from his luxury jail cell
Late Doors

Only flown in and out and cycling into France over the Alps, Can just remember Turin been maaassssiive, long busy roads, factories, noisy. Clean and organised, looked wealthy but alas we never got to see the older parts. Some other time though. Let us know how you get on please. JC Related?

5 lackeys? You expecting some trouble from Cosa Nostra?

That is so mafiosiist.

The 5 lackies are my good lady, a good Leeds fan mate and his partner who can speak Italian, their baby daughter and my 'stepdaughter'.  Yes LD, it is, and I tell you what, whatever the Italian is, I cannot fecking wait to write this book and see Turin and try and picture it from 1957 when JC first went there.

The crowd of Turin.

Amazing to think that at the height of his fame, he still lived in the Wesleys. Or so I've been told.

Not far off, he lived in the Heaths which are virtually opposite the ER main gates.  He also lived in a house on Middleton Park Crescent I think, and before that on the Nosters overlooking the Beeston 'quarry'... the street was Marley View I think it was called, number 3.  Albert Johanneson lived there a few years later when he first arrived in Leeds, it was a boarding house for LU young uns.

My own memory of Charles was the trip back on the coach from Hillsbrough back in the 70's? (I think) when we had just lost to Man U in the semi final of the cup. Charles was sat in the seat in front of me along with his son. Anyway Charles is trying to get 40 winks but his lad was having none of it. He's smacking him on the head and grabbing his cheek to try and get the slumbering mans attentions. All Charles did was open his eyes, smile, and then closed them again. A true gentle giant.

By the way Codge I've got a vinyl record/book of the 'great' Juve side of the early seventies that was presented to my old man when he was arranging a match. I know it's a bit late for the Charles era but it might set the scene. Only thing is it's all in Italian.

Blimey, never heard of it, would be intersted to look at it anyway.  Worth a load of lira or two I would bet.
