Paul - someone recently suggested to me to add a couple of squares of dark chocolate to the chilli just before serving. Mrs Laker thought I was mad, but the result was worth the risk. 8) I've no idea why it works, but I have it on good authority that chocolate and chilli are regularly mixed in Mexic...

Alright, Psycho is new to the management game, but at least we'd get a bit of passion and restore some pride. I don't care if we get our arses kicked by any team who played better than us, as long as we at least made some attempt play football. Last night's performance was a disgrace - for the next ...

Fantastic stuff - took a Russian friend of mine to see them in Cambridge last year, and he was completely blown away by the experience and hasn't stopped talking about it yet.

Hello

I've been a fan since I first heard No More Heroes in 1977, and first saw the band on the Raven tour in 1979. I've travelled all over the UK for live gigs, and abroad a couple of times, most recently Nice in November last year.
Next outing for me will be Brockwell - see you there.
