Norwich City nesting dolls in Prague

Hi, thank you so much for putting me on the lookout for football nesting dolls in Prague. I am actually a Norwich City fan and can confirm with hey are still sold there, as I bought one just a few weeks ago.

Love how your podcast makes me feel like I’m just sitting down for a chat with y’all. Glad to have found this!

Enjoyable

Such an enjoyable complement to the great magazine . Great to listen to out walking and like being in a pub talking about football , macaroni pies , and all the stuff we’re missing. Geordie Steve review below summed it up better than me 👍🏻⚽️😀
