Breast (on) From The East (Midlands)

You’d have thought that I was up to speed on all the Derbyshire destinations having visited somewhere in the region of 190 boozers over the past two and a half years.

It’s the hope that kills you really… I reckon Birmingham’s 200 year masterplan to conquer World Football (due to come to fruition in 2075) is still on course as we are currently undergoing what historians will look back on and call ‘the fallow years.’ Sun shining, potential to be in the top four at the… Continue reading It’s The Hope That Kills You…In Coleshill
