  2. Ah the Cali, now you're talking, I could post hundreds of things from my memories of the Cali. I literally spent half of my misspent youth watching LTFC and the other half up the Cali, I went pretty much every week (sometimes twice a week) from 1974 til the day it closed. I cried my eyes out at the last night there Bramingham - re your best girlfriend me too (apart from the current Mrs IM obvs), I went out with a girl from Woburn Sands for a couple of years and we were always to be found up the Cali, then we just sort of drifted apart really, great times. The Devils Den was superb, loved that place and the bands I saw there is a who's who of Soul and Funk and to name just a few standouts, Brass Construction, War, James Brown, The Temptations, the Fatback Band, The Drifters (endless times), The Stylistics, The Four Tops, KC and the Sunshine Band, Kool and the Gang (before they went poppy), The Commodores, The Three Degrees, The Detroit Spinners, the genius Bobby Womack, etc, etc etc. Beforehand drinking in the Windsock, then afterwards if we didn't head straight for home we would sometimes stop off in the Aquarius nightclub in West Street, before trying to get home to Caddington either by hitching or scrounging a lift, a cab (if you could find and afford one), or many many times walking home. Absolutely the best times, I guess we were spoilt really having such an iconic place on our doorstep, but possibly didn't realise it at the time. Happy happy days.
  3. Indeed, my (obvious) top two: Raddy (how exotic a signing was that at the time, from Yugoslavia of all places when that was still a very secretive country) Lars
  4. Now on Official Site: https://www.lutontown.co.uk/news/2017/june/marek-stech-signs/
  5. 27, from Sparta Prague 6 foot 5 inches
  6. It's Marek Štěch, goalie. Need that name on a shirt, got great tattoos too Boom!
  7. Live video on the Luton Town Facebook page at 3.15 pm, haven't been this excited since I don't know when, here you go, from Twitter: NEW SIGNING! Head over to our Facebook page at 3:15pm this afternoon, we will have a FB live video to bring you! #COYH https://t.co/2MHw756ybb
  8. Howdy Curlz, my take is that if it's just one (or two maybe) older players then that's fine with me, but if the rest of the close season signings are all 30+ then there might be some cause for concern as generally we want the team to improve and grow together. It was well documented how young some of our teams were last term, but in some games we needed that thing called nous, those of you who I chat to regularly about LTFC will have heard me say that lots over the past few years. Sure Hylton has it in spades (see how he plays out matches, Plymouth (A) last season was a great example) maybe Cuthbert at times a bit, but other than that we have very little. We just need (and needed) an older head to know when to do the right things, slow it down, pick a pass, etc and if McCormack can do some of that he's ticking lots of boxes for me.
  9. Announced this afternoon and about his level at the moment I'd say, frankly he's a mile away from being L2 level, if he proves me wrong over the next couple of seasons good luck to the lad. I assume St Albans must be p/t?
  10. Excellent work as per usual Steve, much appreciated mate. Oh and <cough> as the winner of the Champions League don't I qualify <cough> <cough> for next season's competition like <cough> Liverpool <cough> did a few years back.
  11. No words needed. See you at the bar.
