Did we had this one ? 

 

Must be 1970-71, cos the platform shoes. Not so smooth for a "smoothie"!

I've seen that one somewhere, i'd say it's later than that, usual diclaimer 😉

Maybe some of the Manchester lads around here will have a clue?

1974...Cardiff  City v Man Utd......United supporters used to wear tartan scarves then because they had so many Scottish players ( and a Scottish manager)....there was lots of trouble that day and Uniteds massive away following did not get it all their own way.

Very precise answer, Cerneabbas.

 

What about this one folks, do you think they are "originals" little brothers, or later on ?

As usual, B&W pics are difficult to date. Anyway, they remind me of Shaun, in the Shane Meadows picture.

I think that's one of the pictures out of the Gavin Watson Book. Early 80's.

 

Could be wrong though.

I found this picture interesting...as you say about the shirts untucked,I saw  this in the summer of 1970 in a few places,but if that's POW check trousers that the lad in the jackets wearing I didn't see them until 1971,and check shirts weren't being worn as much  by then....I mentioned seeing skinheads in kiss me quick hats in Weymouth and Weston previously....I cant name the location in the picture ( but it does look familiar )

That looks like Brenda a London skinheadgirl from the 80s in the long skirt. Defiantly revival.

The sizing down advice rings true if you want the slimmer fit, I ordered a size down and it fits perfectly.

Lovely looking jacket, let's see how it holds up!

According to your profile, we're about the same size. What size jacket did you order? If you have time, would you be able to post measurements?

I ordered the Medium (38 inch chest).

 

I'll have to get back to you on measurements, it's half 10 atm and I'm working every daylight hour tomorrow haha.

That's reasonable. I think I'll try my luck with the 38. Thanks for the info.

Ed..Theres quite a bit online about this match,including a brilliant report from a young United fan....also a bit of footage on Pathe news of that bloke in the check jumper getting led off by the police ( I think its him)...Pathe hooligans Cardiff ( its at the end after Spurs in Feyenoord ).

Did you go to the United matches in Bristol that season ? I was at the good Friday match at Eastville ( when it snowed ).

Funny looking at that lad wearing platform shoes to football,I always wore boots ( Martens or monkey) much more practical.

In the mid week before the Cardiff v United game Cardiff played at Bristol City in the league cup,140 arrested ( mainly Cardiff ) out of an 8000 crowd !,the level of violence and disorder in the early 70s is quite difficult to believe now.
