    A lot of pubs in the Leeds area stopped serving Tetleys when they moved production away from the area I seem to recall. A few have done the. reducing the ABV thing. Heineken have and had the nerve to claim it was to promote healthier drinking. A load of bollox as they haven’t reduced the ABV in their beers in Europe where the duties are different,

    When was that?
    Heineken has been 5% in the UK for as long as I remember.
    Or are you referring to the main company cutting other brands they own?

    It was John Smith's, they reduced it from 3.6% to 3.4%, as it made a massive difference to the tax due while making barely any difference to the drink.

    I think the first one Heineken lowered was Strongbow. From memory Smiths and Tetley’s was 3.4% when I started drinking. A lot of beers were weaker, some down to around 2%. Newcastle Brown at 4.3% was considered mind blowing stuff with apocryphal tales of special wards in hospitals for people who had drunk too much of it.<laugh>

    I think the difference is, Walter’s teams create clear cut chances where the players should be scoring so they might struggle scoreline wise but they don’t go a whole 90 minutes where they wouldn’t look like scoring if they played another 90. Also if you play forward with more pace, teams don’t sit back as much. His teams have regularly scored the most goals in the division so I don’t think it’s really comparable. Ipswich is the best example.

    I don't think anybody would complain if we played like Ipswich , the question is will we win more games
    or will the games just have more goals for and against

    I think if beer is under 3% you can’t sell it as alcohol.

    Managed chaos is how I’d call it. Elements of how Rosenior wanted us to play but in attack much less structure which allowed them to very rarely look like they weren’t going to score. Much less focus on keeping the ball at all costs like we often saw too many times in attack because they built a squad with players capable of winning it back should they lose the ball which was our biggest problem.

    We played the way we did to minimise chaos because our midfielders weren’t good enough off the ball to deal with moments when we would lose the ball and the other team would transition. Versus Ipswich having Morsy and Luongo along with the back 5 giving their forwards more freedom to lose the ball by trying more risky things

    Exactly for the reasons posted by OLM. This rule can be applied to most manufacturers now. Lower ABV = lower duty.

    You can in this country. Finland says it has to be over 3% to be considered an alcoholic drink ( a far more sensible attitude than here). First started going in pubs when I was 15 in 1965. We used to laugh at how little the oldies used to drink as we necked it back. One bottle one lad used to knock back had an ABV of 2.2%.<laugh> This has just reminded me of the horror that were Watney’s Red Barrel and Tartan Keg. Think I would go teetotal if those were the only choices nowadays.

    Soon find out.

    My old man used to tell us it was a bit like that back in the 60s but that was before my time following City. Remember him raving about the then famous forward line Wagstaff,Chilton etc but basically we apparently had to score three every game because the defence back then was nothing special? He also left us some memorabilia from that era including a few autographs ,programs ,rosettes and the like plus a ticket stub from the big Cup reply game with Chelsea at Fer Ark. My elder brother use to sponsor a City player who as now sadly passed away via his business and made some money for charity from some of those items mentioned.

    We'd require Ipswich quality players...That Kieffer Moore could do with a new challenge in the championship because he'll soon become a makeweight in the PL. eg...Hutchinson on loan from Chelsea for the season. Davis is an excellent full back but I can see him going to a top 10 premier club.

    It has to be 0.5% or less to be called alcohol free.

    I was amazed to find out Watneys Red Barrel (shudder) was higher than that and that the bland, tasteless fizzy concoction was 3.8% ABV. Can think of one poster on here would have thought it wonderful.<laugh>
