    Yellow is usually in the shirt pocket, and red in the arse pocket, or am I living in the past.

      In the spirit of "Small Claims Court" on 6 Music, my brother used to know Ken Aston, who was credited with inventing red and yellow cards - apparently the idea came to him when sitting at traffic lights. If only he was still alive (Ken Aston, not my brother) we could get the question to him.

      Speaking of whom (my brother, not Ken Aston)....

        Completing the Workington Quadrilogy (although there may be more tales in the box), a game I didn't go to but my brother did, as he was living back in Workington at the time and I have never lived there. This is billed as a Lancashire Football League XI, which may give the impression that it is a select XI from the Lancashire Football League, but no, it is an XI from Lancashire based (in old money) clubs from the Football League. The special guest on this occasion was George Best.

          A nod back to that Fort Lauderdale game, with a picture that is now making me doubt my notion that Bobby Charlton was thrilled to be turning out at Borough Park.

            And that Lancashire team in full.

                  A G rather than W - she M'd a former Sheffield United youth player, as it happens.

                    Limerick v Torino in the Cup Winners Cup, 1971. Don't know why but I find the self-importance of the club secretary sticking his signature prominently on the cover quiet endearing. "This might be a glamour tie against a big Italian club but let's not forget who really does all the work around here!"

                      Nottingham Forest attempt to get hold of their ticket allocation for the 1980 European Cup Final.

                          Six nights for 360 or for an extra 9 you go for only two nights? I'd make an obvious joke there but I quite like Bratislava.

                            Not much difference between 2 and 6 nights.
