    [Film] Most underrated movie

    " The Bridges of Madison County". Fabulous acting from Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood. Emotional tearjerker with a heartbreaking ending. Icing on the cake is the wonderful jazz soundtrack. Probably not suitable for you hairy-assed supporters though.

    [Brighton] Abandoned areas of the King Alfred

    I can't believe no one has mentioned the grab- a - granny Friday night bunfest popular with the unlucky in love singles. Very popular when when I used to haunt the King Alfred in the early nineties.

    [Music] Music performances that bring a tear to your eye.

    If only I knew how to add a video to my answer, maybe someone can do it for me. My choice is Bonnie Raitt's "I can't make you love me". It always hurts to hear the lyrics about a one- side love relationship.

    I remember the immaculately groomed goalkeeper Eric Gill in his green polo neck jumper. Later to become a hotelier. Jimmy Langley with his bandy legs and hitched up shorts. Not a good look. I think he became an English B international. Des Tennant the rotund full back. Roy Jennings an old...

    [Film] Films that make you BLUB

    This also came into my head. Pleading with Meryl Streep to open the car door and go to the pick - up with Clint Eastwood waiting for her at the traffic lights to change her depressing farmers wife life with the man who came into her life unexpectedly. Very tearfull
