This could be shaping up as a "Speci Hunters" vs "Matchmen" (using both terms in the loosest possible way).
Last Tuesday Keith Arthur was at GV filming a "match" (Keith vs a Speci type). KA got whipped!! I sat opposite them and thrashed them both!! Look out for me on the telly if they got the filming angles right (or wrong!)
I've met Fred on a few occasions, he is a lovely bloke, as I'm sure Ray is and yourself too. The keyboard can't show emotions and we all express ourselves differently. If you can make it, go for it, its always different with a pint in your hand and a few pints were downed last time ;-) too many for me ;-(
I still can't make it, if I could I would be there, but I can't. The last one was brilliant!
