Sometimes, you say something to yourself...
... and then the truth hits you like a blow.

Saw an old Inspector Morse, the one where the female pathologist makes her debut.

Said myself, she was a very good-looking woman in her youth...

..., ffs, she was in her late twenties, at the earliest.

I'm bloody old.

When you make that ahhhh sound when you get up or sit down
When you nodd off in front of the telly
When you think I had better take my jumper off indoors as I wont feel the benefit when I go out
The older I get the earlier it gets late
I don't care where the Mrs goes, just as long as I don’t have to go along.

Two players are my West Ham bookends - Danny Williamson was the West Ham first player I saw live that was younger than me. Teddy was the last player that was older.

We've not yet had a manager than was younger and it looks unlikely for a while yet.

I brought a new pair of slippers last Friday and couldn't wait to get home and put them on!

I know what you mean but that occurred to me a few years ago!!!! For some reason when younger I always thought Slaven Bilic as a player was far older than me but when he became our manager I saw that we are the same age! I used to think of ageing in World Cups as to how many have you got left and bloody hell I'm running out of opportunities for England to win the bloody thing!!

Films are the worst though when you watch something that you thought was only a couple of years old and then see it's actually 7 or 8. It amazes me to think that when I used to watch my favourite film Rear Window when I was in my teens the film was around 30 years old being made in 1954 but it always felt far more ancient than that. And yet last night I switched over to Back to the Future 3 and noted it's 27 years old but only seems like yesterday. Bloody frightening.

Re: Sometimes, you say something to yourself...
I've noticed a big change between when I was 50 and the 55 year old I am now.

At 50 I was still out on the razz, chatting up women half my age and basically behaving badly. Now, I've packed up smoking, cut down on my drinking, stopped doing drugs and the thought of spending the night or even an hour with a woman half my age, fills me with dread.

I'm even beginning to see the attraction of getting a nice and comfy pair of slippers.

Are you ABSOLUTELY certain it was because of your age?

First time I encountered it was when kids that were in 3rd form at school when I was in 7th form started appearing legally in the same pubs as me.

Now I'm playing indoor cricket with and coaching kids who could be my grandchildren.....

On the way from Canonbury to Hackney Wick on the Overground for the liverpool game, a bloke offered me his seat. I declined out of sheer embarassment. That really makes you feel old

Re: Sometimes, you say something to yourself...
The one that's hit me recently is moving on from players being younger than me, to managers and even owners being younger than me.

How the fuck did that come so quickly?

I know I'm getting older when I hear myself go 'ahh' when I take a sip of tea.
