    Best of saint and Grevsie ITV4

    Watched a couple of episodes this evening.
    Lovely walk down memory lane.

    Showed Newport county playing in Morton on marsh, and an interview with Tommy Hutchinson who was still playing at 42, but looked 60

    Iíve just watched the first episode, and have to say nostalgia ainít what it used to be.

    Itís so refreshing to see the lack of media training the managers had, and just a say it as they saw it approach.

    Whereas everything appears so staged these days it was even good fun seeing Greavsie in the mix with the England rugby team. And Lineker practicing his rugby goal kicking with whoever the England rugby full back was.

    It may only be 30 years ago but the programme just felt more real and closer to the players, than it does these days with them all being multi millionaires.

    Never mind Lineker and some England rugby full back, remember the great Peter Whittingham with Rhys Patchell:
