My big thing is books. I buy and voraciously read history but as I read them I refer back to sources and then feel this need to find as near to original sources to buy.

The most I've spent is £300 on a set of 16th century presses for the Iliad and Odyssey in ancient Greek but that was 30 years ago. I know the value of them now and was well worth the purchase.


I've an eye on Xenephon March of 10,000 press from 16th century which is 4k currently and know that'll grow in value over time.

I bought one vinyl back in 1995 from a shop and it was Robert Johnson from Vocalian Records in 1937. I spent an entire month's rent on it so about £180 and now it could pay a mortgage.

Still buy books but kept in a paid for environment and the vinyl is in a bank vault.

I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

I'm liking the recent trend of 90s colours and patterns (without the baggy 90s fit).

I prefer a slightly baggy fit, nowadays it’s all skin tight. Doesn’t do much for the non-athletic figure <laugh>

Touche. I definitely don't want the player fit and material - which I know was offered for a phase. But as a tall skinny guy, I also look awful in the old style where the cuffs were tighter than the baggy sleeves.

I've said it before, I timed it perfectly. All my medium 90s kits from my teens fit my large body now...

Great move by Brentford. It's a shame that this is a surprise these days, I'm old enough to remember the same kit being used through multiple seasons, hopefully this leads the way to a shift back to those times or at least inspires some regulation to stop new kits every year. I think it's still doable in this age, all clubs would need to do is make shirt variants similar to the one Castore have done with our shirt recently to help the revenue stay at the same levels.

Yeah hats off to them, there's absolutely no reason every club PL couldn't either a) run one kit for 2 seasons or b) sell them for half the price.

If they did run them for multiple seasons then they could probably justify the current price of a kit. I'd be more willing to pay £65 for a shirt if I knew we were using it for more than 10 months

I've never really understood the big deal? Maybe it's because I don't have a 10 year old son urging me to buy him one, but I don't see the implied pressure to buy each new kit. The last one I bought was the burgundy/navy hooped away kit of a few seasons back, but as far as I'm concerned, the more we release, the more likely there'll eventually be one every few years I like enough to buy on sale at the end of the season.
