    you got it Dave, Have a few blobs before going on a tour of the locals in winter it sure warms you up for the walk.
    btw, Yates have gone upmarket now you have to call them white wine all ins, i still ask for blobs though.

    No, there used to be a yates at the top of market street next to HSBC in front of the tram stop called the Blob shop – just up from the hogshead opposite the arndale entrance.

    i know that well mate it was called the albion bar then there was the main one at the junction of oldham rd and ancoats street and the third is called the merchants on oldham st just before you go into piccadily sqr.
    i know my boozers round town bud.
    there’s still one pub in town that sells a pony by the gill out of the barrel, now that one warms your cockles in winter.

    LoL …..Blobs on this side of the country are seagulls wellies … Condoms .the Blob shop is where you take you newborn back for a refund ! LoL
    They were also packets of red sweats with cream in LoL we used to go into the corner shop aged about 12 and shout ‘Giv uz a packet of Blobs mister ‘ when there was loads of people in , This was at the time a side splitter and I’d we’d roll around for hours . I havent changed that much so looking forward to my next visit to a Yates’s LoL
