I think I was either 4 or 5 when my parents bought one like that. I think it was to entertain my oldest brother, who died, aged 18, only about a year after it was bought. He had muscular dystrophy and was wheelchair bound from around the time I was born.

It seems That Kiss is causing massive repercussions. The Spanish ladies want, quite rightly in my book, to say Farewell and Adieu to the perpetrator, and are refusing to play again whilst he is still in post. Meanwhile, the Spanish football federation are threatening to sue them.

That has rather soured things less than a week after their triumph.

When we came back from living in Greece we stayed with my ex's mother who had a hired TV from Radio Rentals which needed feeding with 50p's to make it work.
We'd got back from a Xmas holiday in Snowdonia to find that the flat had been broken into and the miscreants had smashed the coins box off the back of the TV.
We got rid of the TV at that point.
It must've been 1990 or thereabouts.


ETA - The whole Luis Rubiales thing is regrettable and revolting. The man is a disgrace and I feel sorry for the women who have just won The World Cup FFS - to have the event overshadowed by this trash.
