    It was supposed to be a parody thread about 1632’s stupid idea of what Albion is on the Brexit thread but it seems to have provoked its own discussion!

    You never wanted to play Sunday football against the old Albion thats all I am saying - anyone from Middleton will know that ! Them and Hebers WMC.

    I ran the Langley Albion team from there in the mid to late 90s.

    Won all the Middleton leagues and trophies.

    Nice blokes in that pub.

    Now the Hebers was different. Their manager was a character is all I am saying.

    That would be the "new" Albion - the rebuilt pub? Did you ever get in the old Albion - the one like a terraced house, proper pub building? That had a fearsome reputation but I suspect it suited the purposes of all involved - kept out the riff raff, tourists and tyre kickers lol

    Perfidious Albion play in a breakaway European League.

    They might say they play in it, but sometimes they turn up, sometimes they don't...

    I thought the new Albion was in Europe?

    Only a couple of times, my dad liked it.

    It is where we go from to games now, we have made it a City pub
