    Ever since the Kop closed I could now practically recreate the Racecourse with three.

    I keep forgetting that Coventry's shitty owners are being allowed to fuck them so badly over and over

    Well, 90, if you count Coventry and Birmingham as one.

    Is that really what Old Trafford looks like? It's a bit shit, isn't it?

    Are we going to have people trying to join the 92 club in lego?

    I had one lego set as a child. It was supposed to be a train station or something, with a train track. I don't know if I ever built the train station, or simply used the pieces to build an endless stream of weapons of war, or guns. I seem to recall my parents deciding that I may have been too old for duplo, when I used it to make a reasonable facsimile of an Uzi. I shudder to think what I would have made out of a mecano set.
    Indeed, purely doing OT would be pointless without expanding to other British and European grounds, one would imagine.

    Both my kids love lego. The four year old plays with Minecraft lego for several hours a day. That said, there is a clear structural break in their markets - the kids stuff (minecraft, Harry Potter, Movie, Friends, City) versus the Star Wars / Architecture / Space stuff they do which is absurdly expensive and targeted at adults.

    The current catalog arrived in the post the other day and had this in it https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/i...estroyer-75252. $700. And boasting 2 minifigures!

    That is rather in line with lego pricing. it is astronomical how much these things cost nowadays.

    They could do a Gigg Lane one and name it FC United.

    There are a lot of stickers on that. Or possibly preprinted blocks. Which doesn't seem very LEGO.

    Does it come pre-assembled? And on a plate? I can't imagine the glory hunting fraternity would ever want to put in any effort to achieve a result.

    As I've found with the number of people who've said "Why don't you just support another team?"
