In its Heyday TWC was sent to China!

Aside from a dozen or so in Germany we had three US subscribers in the last year, nothing more exotic.

And there was one fella who moved to Scotland to escape global warming... ;D

...and I never did get to read what Will had written regarding the BITF re-issue, the main reason for me re-subscribing. Not only did he rip it up following you know what at you know where when you know what happened, MH subsequently ceases publication. I'm taking it personally. So that would make me neurotic. It's a gift.

Is Youatt junior into Man? Or is he more sensible than us?

Quixotic! That'll do nicely!

Scandinavia not count then, Michael? I did receive TWC until the bitter end. Norway isn't still part of Germany....

Steph, I started this, and included N.Europe to cover Scandinavia. Germany had it's own listing because there is a large fan base there (1!!)..

More important, is Youatt junior into cricket like his Dad? Wicketkkeper as well? We need to know!

Indeed, Rob. I therefore propose a comeback issue of 'TWC' featuring the original Will piece to keep me quiet and in depth interview/grilling of young Ben. We'll supply the questions. Does he like Subbuteo?

Bit surprised at the lack of Wales votes in Pete's poll...and European votes where the band feel they now have more interest.

NN, that was part of the reason for it, hoping to get 4 from Scotland, Wales and Germany are lacking behind a bit..

Looking at the results, we should expect 16 gigs in England, 5 in Scotland, 3 in the states, and they can fit in an odd night in Germany just to please Mikes.

Actually, I'm Welsh, from .....Wales ::), but now live with the Sais oop North in freezing Yorkshire. So I voted as a resident of England. I bet there's quite a few of us "refugees" inflating the English count (or deflating the Welsh one).

Another poll recording nationality would be interesting. I'm another ex-pat living amongst the Sais.

I suppose we've also got to take into account the fact that not everyone who reads this forum is a member, so they would be unable to vote. I say to them all - Join in! Be as daft as us! (well as daft as me, anyway...)

On top of that, not everyone who is a fan - regardless of band - is going to be the sort who uses the internet anyway. I know plenty of people who like Man who fall into this category, many of whom are complete computerphobes! Such as me, technically. Or untechnically.

"Peace to all" in English.

But not when the 6 nations kicks off.

I don't think that Nick is included in the 6.  Although I may be wrong. 

Him against the Wales team?  Hmmm! We could maybe pinch a draw...

I would say not every Man fan knows this forum ! If so we would be milions...  ;)

C'mon NickB.  Now you've retired you have time on your hands to do this sort of stuff.  I miss our little chats before you were about to train people on D link.  Enjoy your retirement and may it be a long one!

@ Pete:

If they were about to please me, they'd not only play gigs in the north, just about travelling distance from Martins home.  >:(

Yes, it's funny how things turn out...hopefully if we all do things properly an amicable arangement can be agreed with all these burly Welshmen and the need for thuggish behaviour reduced as a consequence. We shall see.

Ohh - Rugby! woops.... ;)
