  1. Partner’s family have an apartment in Andalucía right on border with Portugal, and over the years we’ve been going there together, we’ve always stopped for a few nights in a couple of places on the Algarve en route to Spain, as we fly into Faro. As a result, have spent a lot of time in a gorgeous little town on the Algarve called Tavira and there’s one place where I go every year that does the most amazing grilled chicken piri piri. If you’ve spent a bit of time in Portugal or Spain, you’ll know the type of place - proper unassuming little canteen-style restaurant on a square away from the main strip by one of the many gorgeous little churches, chaotic mustachioed owner scrambling around doing everything from cooking food to waiting on the 8 or so tables, football blaring on TV in corner on full blast.. and it’s all the more amazing for it! As owner has limited space, he’s incorporated the grill into the main window of the restaurant, so you can’t walk by without admiring his mastery of the grill and drooling. Takes a while for the chicken to come, but it’s bloody worth the wait – comes with salad (meh), mound of home made chips and his home made piri piri oil (and that’s what it is, an oil, not the luminous, gloopy shit you get at Nandos!), wash it down with some vinho verde… so simple but sensational. Booked to stay in Tavira for a couple of nights again in August, but who knows if we’ll get our fix this year as it currently stands! That and any bar anywhere in the Basque country where you can just gorge on various pintxos with a cold beer and jump into the next one to repeat, the tortilla up there is up there with best I’ve ever had, including my Gran’s (I’m half Spanish as mum is from Cádiz) although I’d never tell her that 😂.

  4. Hi all, Hope everyone and their loved ones are doing well in this testing time. With all the free time we’ve been dealt with recently, not to mention the general state we find our club in, to take mind of current matters, I’ve been getting all nostalgic and misty eyed for our mental club, and inspired by the PTB ‘You are my Oldham’ stories, got to thinking about my early days as a fan and first experiences. My first ever game was a late season friendly game v Liverpool in 1992, which from what I understand was a testimonial for our ex youth player Wayne Harrison. As a fresh faced 7 year old with very little attention span, all I can vaguely remember is the score was 2-2 and that I sat in the George Hill upper with my old man, along with his Liverpool supporting mate and his lad of around the same age as me, where I was less taken by the action and more the hotter-than-the-sun chocolate searing my taste buds off and ‘state of the art’ electronic graphics on the scoreboard to my right (Come… On… Oldham!!) – luckily I was a little more hooked for my next visit, the 5-3 v Forest early the next season, which really started my love affair with the club and football in general. Despite it being a low key friendly I always consider this my first ever game of football (also keeps up a tradition of testimonials I've been to, including Stitch, Shez and Eyresy's games), so means a lot to me, but there is understandably very little info on the game recorded . A few searches have yielded some basic info on Liverpool’s scorers, line ups etc, but nothing for Latics, so wondered if anyone here remembers the game and who scored for us etc? Long shot given as it was a long time ago and an unremarkable game (searches say around 4,400 in attendance), but some users here have an encyclopaedic knowledge of our club, so worth an ask!
  5. Also looking forward to Gerrard going directly up against him at corners given their spat last year, should be amusing.
