He is also expert at dropping into conversation with visitors to the Rovers, extracting every last information and knowledge they have about lower division football teams and beating that knowledge. This leaves the visitors feeling quite bemuse and wishing they had never come into the pub in th efirst place although they'll know next time not to make eye contact. A bit like the oft told sketch of the bloke who comes and sits next to you on the bus.

 

Now, is Raz a troll, so to speak?

 

ie is he really a once normal person who is trying to get the last laugh or is he for real - a font of largely irrelevant (apart to a minority) knowledge about, er, York City and other such stuff.

 

A bit like a steven but not in cyberspace sort of thing.

Raz is also an expert on the Beatles, simply repeat a line from an obscure Beatles song and he'll know the title.

 

Not a lot of people know that!

How do you avoid making eye-contact with someone in mirrored shades?

 

Troll? Well if he ever discovers the Internet we're in trouble.

 

He is fairly normal underneath it all, when sober and the topic isn't York City.

True, and the Cramps and assorted Punk and Indie acts.

I think the newest manx person making the headlines is chris brain. He's on channel 4s shipwrecked. and is very hot so that helps to tune in (and supporting the IOM of course) :P

A 'brain' on a reality TV show - isn't that what they call an oxymoron - you know, like 'military-intelligence'?

 

I'm glad to be able to say I've never heard of him.
