  2. I wonder what Alf would make of modern athletics, with its preening and narcissistic participants, their cheating and protesting, legal challenges, sponsors and advertising. Big business.

    It'd be nice to see him whup the arse off "role models" like Chambers and Christie. Heh. Fish 'n' Chips vs. THG and Nandrolone.

    I always thought Coe was a weasel, but fair play to the man he was straight in athletics. Maybe Alf should be elevated to the peerage.
     
  3. He'd lose.
     
  4. £9.09! Used to cost 2d a week, nostalgia certainly doesn't come cheap nowadays.

    On the same page on the Amazon site are some rather nice other comic books. Shame I can't blag them for review purposes!
     
  6. 'Course he would. He's 81. Still a better welder than either of those two, though.

  7. As a welder Alf would have been unemployed for decades so more time for training - he'd leave the modern pansies in his dust.
