There is talking football and talking football. If talking football means punters claiming to know better than professionals about tactics, formations and players, then count me out.

This is a Pompey message board, despair is our constant companion. If we didn't discuss the appalling political situation for some light relief and concentrated only on our mediocre performances, depression would soon claim us all.

We used to want for a leather ball, but the leather balls of the 70s were geometric panel jobs with crappy paint on that peeled off really quickly. For the equivalent amount of pocket money today you could probably buy 10 official Barca ones from Ashley's Slave Direct.

What about those real cheap lightweight jobs that if you punt hard enough they move in the air like you are Brazilian? At least they don't bring on early Alzheimers.

Have you ever seen a kid try playing with a cheap 70s/80 leather ball until the stitches break and the rubber inner ball pokes out?

Then that pops and the kid's brother then rips it and wears it on his head similar to a swimming cap, claiming to be Kojak and chasing kids around shouting, "who loves you baby?"

If you have seen this in the late 70s at Bidbury Mead or Hooks Lane, you've met me and my brother.

Speaking of my brother, he doesn't get to the football much anymore, but when he did he had an ongoing obsession of yelling, "keep it!" whenever a ball went out of play into the crowd near him.

His ambition was to just stuff it up his jumper and tell anyone encouraging him to return it to the pitch to XXXXXX off.

Strange bloke my brother.

Did anyone notice this actually happened on Saturday, Fratton End end of the North Terrace, the ball went out for ages, was it returned?

I've got an autographed Pompey ball somewhere but for the life of me I can't remember where it is. It has Paul Hall, he has a proper fancy footballer's signature, Fitzroy Simpson and Deon Burton on it. If Jamaica had won the world cup it could be worth anything up to £15. I seem to think Bally and Svenson are on there as well, to be honest there are a lot of squiggly marks that could be anyone.

I've played with all sorts of substitute balls in the past. I remember a whole week of playground football with a stone. It had a distinctive mark on it so we used to leave it near a certain fencepost when the bell went. Tennis balls are popular, worn out dog chewed ones. I've seen kids playing with a dead animal but I'll save that story for my memoirs.

I scored probably the best goal I've ever scored with one of those orange plastic balls, they were fecking ace.
It was crossed to me but fell a little bit behind me but I managed to reposition myself so that I got a full on left footed volley, and it flew in the top corner (actually of the net fence around the basketball court in the park), it actually took me by surprise that I caught it so well; my mate Raz in goal didnt smell it.

When I was a nipper I could hoof a ball miles, proper box to box stuff. I'm now 6'3" with thighs like tree trunks (I do a bit of cycling and a lot of trail running) but can barely put enough power on it to go from penalty spot to goal line.

A boxer mate of mine says this is down to being aware of injury and the joints breaking down, it sometimes happens with throwing punches. Even on those fairground punchbag machines, a young relaxed skinny guy can lazily smash the thing, big lump like me gets all worked up to bury it but tenses to avoid injury (subconsciously) and barely moves it then still injures himself.

Same with kicking a ball.

The new Nike Merlin Premiership ball for the 2018/19 season retails at about £105. They do a lookalike for £22.

Alternatively, Sondico do a leather ball for £3, soon to be available from Chichester House of Fraser when Ashley turns it into Balls'r'us or something.

Checked in the garden shed here in Milan, got a 2014 leather replica from a supermarket of the Worldcup 2006 ball. They say it was signed by Roberto Baggio, Dino Zoff, Gianluigi Buffon, Silvio Berlusconi and Al Capone, impressive but improbable

Apparently it is an Addidas Teamgeist, now normally I would be selling this for about £50,000 as it was the last time Italy did anything interesting in world or european football, as half of its leather plates have fallen off it could be yours if you come over to Italy to ick it up from my grandson's paddling pool where it happily bobs up and down. Yours for a quid.

According to my son Paolo Rossi Jnr. (Deed Poll denouces father Rossi v Milanman 1994 Zurich case 104/45119 B)) it is great for scoring amazing curler goals down the rec.

Enuff said.

Tomorrow maybe we can talk about football in the widers sense :-)

Two football facts.

The Wembley Trophy football was and is the finest none leather football ever made. In 1972/73 they could be obtained for one complete book of green shield stamps from the shop in Commercial road. During that time The Wembley Trophy Football was the shops biggest seller.

Fact two, when punctured by being caught on barbed wire, you could do a ď hot weld ď repair using a lighter and one of your mums butter knives. Unfortunately the weld did not seem to last too long and once the old man worked out who had XXXXXXed up the butter knife you tended to get an eye watering clump in the head.

Smirnoff Iíd have never remembered doing that if you hadnít posted about it, jumpers for goalposts.
I used to heat the knife up on the stove and we always had a heat blackened knife in the garage and if we couldnít find it nick another one out of the drawer and those were the days your mum knew exactly how many she had.
When you headed those footballs coming at you at top speed theyíd nigh on take your fvckin head off.

I think I had a Frido football - like some 70's S&M gear with the rubber dimples on the outside. Really stung when it hit you.

I still have a Wembley Trophy ball in the garage back home. It's faded to pale orange and was rock hard the last time I saw it but I could never bring myself to throw it away.

Savoloy, [:D] Pompey was still covered in bomb sites in the early to mid seventies. Bits around lake road resembled modern day Syria without the Arabs. British bulldog was one of the games of choice, piece of XXXXXX in the playground, whole different game amongst the rubble! Flashback to when we played cowboys and Indians in the late 60ís , was the only Hindu / Asian kiddie in the whole school, sub consciously sending us a message, by insisting on always being one of the cowboys rather than one of the Indians!

The frido ball had one of those puncture repair kits too. The colours were normally white or orange and maybe red but they also did a brown one for disguising dog XXXXXX when you kicked it at unsuspecting members of the public.

Yep I remember playing on the old bomb sites as well. That was back in the day when kids went out in the morning and didnít come back until it got dark without the parents worrying all day.
You had all day to cause as much mayhem as possible and trying to stay out of the clutches of the local bobby because there actually were some around then.
Great memories.
