No doubt he's been in trouble.He’s obviously got into some trouble in the past as you can google it, but yeah their were parts where I felt he may be embellishing it some what. He made Sheffield sound like an episode of Gomorrah. Surely it’s not that mad?
Also the part where Tris Dixon kept saying that it all sounded a bit crazy but he had googled some of the people Richard knew etc sounded like Tris may of felt it sounded like Richard may of been a little economical with the truth in places!!No doubt he's been in trouble.
But his stories did seem a tad overy the top in parts.
The Brendan Ingle/Dave Allen story about Allen "blowing bubbles" seemed quite timely...
You know!Listened to Towers. I am not really into gangland stuff, but it was interesting.
There are more people living that sort of life than you would hope. I grew up in a crap area where there was a lot of violent crime. Mostly teenagers stabbing each other, but also some proper gangsters.
I can believe a lot of the stuff did happen, (these things do), but I also know a lot of these guys talk rubbish. Reputation means a lot to them, most are a bit touched in the head, and they believe their own hype more than most.
Every one of the guys you get on those Danny Dyer shows talk as if they are a cross between Rocky and rambo and have murdered whole squads of folk with their bare hands. Got to take it with a pinch of salt.
Ha, I wasn't mixing with the cast of Snatch, just the normal teenage stuff for anyone who has grown up in the rough bit of a city. You do know people though.You know!
Yeah the Darke one was like a stroll down memory lane. Loved it. Best one so far for me.I am a bit behind with these. Just listening to Ian Darke. Just hearing him talk boxing brought back loads of memories.
He has loads of well practiced anecdotes, can imagine him swapping them in press rooms, or dishing them out at dinner functions.
Liked the Frank Maloney quote "they've killed Lou Duva! I think he's dead! ", talking about Prince Naseem being a prat, and interviewing a naked Marvin Hagler.
