Tariq, is his name.. His dad used to own the chippie, along with the noodle place and rupee room. He sold up to someone and buggered off to Florida. Tariq tried to stay on but the new guy won't pay much more than subsistence money to his staff. As a result, the place has gone seriously downhill since...

My Smoggy mate was over from Bahrain this weekend, we had a right canny old time.

Didn't talk about footy too much mind, they have dropped like a bloody stone.

Well, aye. Small Town in Yorkshire and all that. At least we know and accept our place, unlike the barcodes who think their main rivals are Real Madrid and Man U.

That's never been the case, and you know it.

Aye sounds like Dubai - tell you what, if you could open a proper chippy, that did pork battered sausages, decent cod in well done batter you'd clean up.

Proper Cod and chips with real mushy peas and all cooked in Beef Dripping...not good for the heart but good for the soul...!

My boss thought people from Boro were Geordies. I set him straight.

As for the football...has been a pretty shocking season, sure enough. Strachan was a big mistake. Mowbray seems to have something about him and has steered us to safety. Maybe next season we will be able to challenge.
