  1. i watched the progam on bbc2 last nite . wot did every 1 make of it ??? i hope im wrong but to me it didnt seem very well planned out especially the bit about the train station shudnt they of researched that before splashing out millions of pounds . and startin work evan tho they didnt have the money to finish it . i think they will end up bein demolished unfortunately sheffield without park hill flats wud be strange .

  8. He also had very little luck in and out of the ring apparently married badly, got divorced which cost him a lot of money then he was only 1 round away from winning a world title and got knocked out with seconds left on the clock also he was in an era before sky television took off and there wasnt as much money floating around as there is today in terms of talent he was much better than naseem hamed but naz was luckier and a better showman
  9. herol grahm is from nottingham but came to sheffield as a teenager after winning 2 national titles and was taken under the wing of great boxing coach brenden ingle. he was like poetry in motion what a fighter he was

  12. im only 22 but my dad told me about roxys night club he said anyone could get in and you were garenteed to pull evan if you were the ugliest bloke walking the face of the earth haha. ive watched the utube footage and it looks brilliant much better than nite clubs these days. i wonder what it looks like inside nowadays if you went in would it be like going back in time 20 years ibet it would be a bit weird with it all disused and quiet
  13. im only22 but my dad told me about roxys night club he said anyone could get in and if you couldnt pull a bird in there you wernt trying haha.I also watched the utube footage from the hitman and her and it looked brilliant.
