Modern day gooners blubbing over an exaggerated sense of self importance should be reminded at every opportunity that this ladies front bum got them to where they are now using very dubious business practice..

Any old Dublin Hammers might remember this fella, Bang Bang. Both my mum and dad remember him. He used to go round with a big key pretending to shoot people. He wasn't the full quid but apparently everyone used to play along with him. My mum remembers during the war, he knocked on my nan's door and exclaimed"

"I'm Hitler, and you're me wife, Missus Hitler".
