WHO Poll
Q: 2023/24 Hopes & aspirations for this season
a. As Champions of Europe there's no reason we shouldn't be pushing for a top 7 spot & a run in the Cups
b. Last season was a trophy winning one and there's only one way to go after that, I expect a dull mid table bore fest of a season
c. Buy some f***ing players or we're in a battle to stay up & that's as good as it gets
d. Moyes out
e. New season you say, woohoo time to get the new kit and wear it it to the pub for all the big games, the wags down there call me Mr West Ham

John McVicar
Surprised the busy cunts on here missed this blokes passing. Died of a heart attack last month while walking his dog, aged 82. Loved the film with Roger Daltrey, back when.

Anything with McShane in is good. He was in a Minder episode that I watched the good day, playing his usual villainy self. Was great as old black magic Teddy Bass.

Re: John McVicar
I watched Villian again recently which was kind of a miss mash of the Krays and Richardsons tale in an indirect way.

Still, Richard Burton and Ian McShane on top form so well worth a watch. The clothes are spot on...a bit of an under the radar Get Carter.

Not as good but with a better director it might have reached a similar status.

He was always waiting at South Woodham train station with his dog as I got off the train. Never said a word to anyone

Went to see this when it came out at the cinema, dragged along by a mate. Wasn't looking forward to it thinking Daltrey would be crap as primarily a singer, but he played the part well. Don't recall him doing other acting roles that stood out.

I like posts like this, football supporters like a rascal. Recently I’ve read up on gangsters of the prohibition period. Jack Legs Diamond was a good read .

Re: John McVicar
He once had a pub in Blackburn or Greater Manchestersome years back. obviously out of the way.
A few of the old school Hammers went and visited him after a game once,said he was good company but a villian nethertheless.

I had one of his old textbooks at school. Funny seeing his name in there after watching the film

Runaway train with Eric Roberts and John Voight was a great prison movie.

Do a story on Charles Bronson, no not THAT Charles Bronson.

Bloke was an utter hard case

The John Twomey story would make a good film.
He and his co defendants were the first convicted in the absence of a jury.

Re: John McVicar
Sold - Funny enough I watched that for the first time just recently, didn't think that much of it, but these older prisons films don't really age well. To be fair there are a lot of good prison films.

Another film around that time of the same ilk was Sense of Freedom ... all about the Glaswegian gangster Jimmy Boyle... fuck me what a story he had.

Re: John McVicar
John McVicar's parents were my local newsagents when I was growing up. I never really knew him ( he was older than me ). If he had ever worked in his parent's shop he might have been our paperboy. My four girl cousins lived just across from the newsagents; two were closer to his age and knew him but were not close friends. He never got a mention until he became an infamous armed robber.

The only other thing I have in common was that we both did an Open University degree, although he didn't have to do it while going to work. He had more time on his hands:) Mind you like me the OU did change his life and career choices!

May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

In the days of the good old VHS in the early mid 80’s me and my MATES this was one of our films of choice with a few beers… we could recite it word for word….

“They found a whole barrack load of them stuck up each other... Sunk to the nuts they were. They are gonna rename them…. the Durham Bumpers…. Ah… they do love an arsehole these Geordies…”
