Seem to recall family members watching the Albania game in the Submarine via some unofficial satellite source. 


That game was shown on a giant telly in The Point. They charged however much it was and a few thousand paid in to see it. It was great craic made all the better by a 2-1 win

That's where I watched it. Good day out. Had to work harder than expected for that win, wasn't a great performance.

Exactly the same with me. LOL

Yeah I think they scored first and then we got back with goals from Staunton and Cascarino (I think). I can't remember which of them got the winner but I think it was fairly late on. That would have been a great triple header. I didn't get to my first away though until Latvia in 1994.

Cas got the winner in the last ten mins. Italy at Giants stadium was my first away, wouldn't have had it but for that winner.

As first away games go, that one would be pretty hard to beat.

Nice if you had 3 weeks off from work LOL

I assume most would have flown over and back for the Albania game and then do the week for the Latvia/Lithuania matches.

Murder Rap

Labyrinthine documentary about the internecine feud between Suge Knight's Death Row Records and Puff Daddy's Bad Boy Records in the mid-90s. A feud that resulted in Tupac's ignominious death in 1996 and Notorious B.I.G.'s assassination, commonly thought to be a reprisal, several months later in 1997.

The documentary makes a convincing case as to who and what was responsible for the murders, backed up by interviews with chief investigator Greg Kading, and copious police interview recordings with some of the main players in the murder conspiracies.

Documentary does a good job of keeping things on track considering the voluminous number of names and information flying at you.

In the end I felt rather sorry for Tupac and Biggie. Both, particularly Tupac, were in way over their heads with some very serious gangsters and paid the most serious price for the image their record companies cultivated for them.

Particularly resonating is surveillance footage from the night of Tupac's death where he participates in a gang assault on the man (a Crip) thought to have killed him on chancing upon him while leaving a Mike Tyson fight, pretty much signing his own death warrant in the process.
Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown.
