    Marvellous

    For anyone who didn't see it first time around, Marvellous is being shown again on BBC 2 at 9.00pm on Wednesday this week, Ist June. It tells the true story of Neil Baldwin, played by Toby Jones. Neil from Stoke on Trent has learning difficulties, and is a fanatical Stoke supporter. Well worth a watch.

    Thanks for the heads up mate. Never heard of it but it sounds interesting. Will try to grab it of piratebay.

    Certainly is. I finally got it downloaded last night. A very special movie, highly recommend it.

    Glad you enjoyed it Woody, There is just something about it. What it didn't show on the film--- One day the Stoke players stripped Neil stark naked in the middle of the pitch. I had that from a source inside the club. Did you recognize the ground as Crewe Alexanders.

    No mate, never been there that I can remember. Going to watch it again with the wife tonight.

    Woody, it might be my memory, but did you not go to a pre season friendly at Crewe a few years ago, on one of your visits to home?
