Myself and the Mogul were seven minutes late into the game yesterday. We had both had a bit of a dash into Stoke-on-Trent and as we knew we were going to be late we were in no particular hurry from car park to turnstile and were in fact enjoying the unusual sonic quality of the crowd noises as heard from outside the stadium. We sauntered along behind three guys who were smoking a rather fragrant brand of grass; they were in no rush either, surprisingly enough. I remember spliffing up before matches in the mid-eighties, a time when I spliffed up with more or less everything I did.

Maybe he had had a little one-skinner beforehand as part of his winter warm up and two step…
