    If Eddie's not right, tempted to say the Hawthorns.

    Actually, can we go back to proper names for football grounds (not that we ever left at Forest), rather the sponsorship abominations. Mansfield's Field Mill is currently known as the One Call Stadium ffs.

    Shoot, way back when, used to include the League of Ireland too.

    I know this due to an unfortunate incident where the next-door neighbours‘ dog accidentally swallowed Dundalk.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Thing I remember vividly about the early days is when the final whistle went, most times, whoever had the ball would turn and blast it into their goal. That is, until, I think an Arsenal player, did it and the whistle hadn't actually gone!

    A spectacular own goal!

    Thinking of old grounds with dog tracks....

    My guess is either Wimbledon‘s Plough Lane or Bristol Rovers Eastville?
