Saturday 19 April 1986

A spot of French revision for today, I had my first exam - a verbal French one on Tuesday!

Gulp! Both Liverpool and Everton won today, so things were still just as tight at the top of the League.  I went to see Shrewsbury Town versus Wimbledon.  This game resulted in a 1-1 draw, and although I make no comment on it, Wimbledon must have been playing their particularly ugly brand of hoof-it football. Shrewbury's Gary Stevens, no not the same one as played for Spurs (or the Everton one for that matter), but another Gary Stevens, was sent off too.  As I noted, 'dirty t**t.' As I was in town anyway,and feeling a little flush, I spent some of my hard earner on no less than three 7" singles. I bought Big Country, Look Away, Austrian demi-God Falco's Rock Me Amadeus and one out of the bargain bucket - Kurtis Blow's If I Ruled The World.
