Stopped watching it years ago I'm sick to death of hearing about 1966, move on.

Sad to say, but next year will effectively see the end of the World Cup as a major sporting spectacular. The following one will be on some patch of sand in one of the world's many entirely artificial 'countries'. The one after that will be expanded to a ludicrous forty-eight teams. Who cares where it gets held?


2018 will be the last tournament I will actually bother to watch. I've got a feeling I won't be entirely alone in that.

We'll be coming up to God's Own City in November, and we're planning to visit Jodrell Bank. Rachel has never been there, and I'm wondering what Aliyah (our three-year-old) will make of it!

Zoe, I remember you and your sleek dark bob. You were a few years above me, but I seem to remember you sitting on the stage in assembly as head or deputy girl? I also remember Christina Papadopoulous who joined our class around 1974 when she left Cyprus, and how amazingly well she did in end of year exams shortly after she arrived

Dear old Sir Bernard. What a magnificent achievement to leave behind in his memory.


And let's not forget his groundbreaking work during the war for the RAF, particularly his discovery of H2S radar. They just don't make them like him anymore.

When Daniel Meadows moved to the city in 1970, he had a less than complimentary view of it.

"It was a big dark city, it was very dirty, it was damp, it rained all the time.

"But it was full of the most wonderful mix of people."

I'm surprised that the death tally was only ten after viewing the strength of the fire coming from the windows
