post #9376 of 18431
I was speaking to my younger Sister last night,and I showed her the Photo of the Arsenal Supporters.I also let her read my Comments about not wearing a Levi Jacket and Jeans.Vanessa told me I had a bad memory!!!smile.gif.She reminded me of the day we visited Guildford(before we moved there),and she said I wore that combination with my Boots and Football Scarf.She reminded me how People stared at us!!!Also Vanessa reminded me,when the Bank Holidays came round,we would wear that as a uniform.We would not wear Harringtons etc.,because they could be grabbed hold of and/or torn.It is a shame that I cannot get Vanessa to relate to those days(only when we have "relaxed").But she became pregnant when she became 15 1/2 and there was Civil War in my Family for months.Many bad memories would re-surface.My Mum was a very strong-willed Character and she meant what she said.Best let sleeping Dogs lie.

I am amazed at the intricate details you Orig.s remember after 40 odd years.I barely remember my married days 20 odd years ago nevermind when I was 16.Impressive(or is it borderline aspergers syndrome,wink wink)

The A207 Shooters Hill - i know it well.- many a long trudge home years ago.     

 

When flyfronted refers to " from the London Gentlemen / City banker." is he refering to 'A Merchant Banker' that has a totally diferent meaning 'Down Sarfe'

Those days to us were obviously very special with great memories of teenage camaraderie and just general great times.  When you settle down you still have special memories but of a totally different view of a changed life.  This thread has revived a lot of memories that I had not particularly had forgotten but needed like minded people to resurrect and I am only too pleased to recall and put to print. 

 

Its enjoyable to touch on various minor subjects and read other folks opinions of things that occurred in our youth.  Recently we commented on 'cow horn handlebars' for bicycles that brought back many happy memories or when me and my mates were kids.  I am finding this thread is not just about our skinhead past but also reviving our general youth and I am pleased that younger members together with the contributors from abroad take pleasure in reading our old stories

No way are they Arsenal fans, and i doubt that photo was taken anywhere near Highbury, They could be Liverpool or Man Utd fans ..scruffy gits, also the way they are wearing their scarfs was a Northern thing, Down at Chelsea we rarely wore scarfs and football colours. maybe only a little lapel badge that was often worn under the lapel,smile.gif

Your mate has a point about the houses, they do look like the houses around London, not your usual Northern type houses,
The two lads to the left seem to be wearing Lee jean Jackets, this thing about jean jackets has been going on from near the beginning on this site biggrin.gif
As i have said numerous times on here we did not wear Jean Jackets, 99% of Northern lads would wear jean jacket and jeans to football, they all looked the same. A Londoner would not wear one...no way...but I'am sure some Londoners would have worn one. but not if they was part of a Football crew,

I remember in 70 going to Everton away, their was 57 on that football special going up to Liverpool, near everyone was wearing a Crombie, coming back on the train near everyone had their Crombie mugged off them, i was one of the lads who managed to get home with me Crombie still on, but thats another story,biggrin.gif

The Football Crews angle is an interesting part of this story.Nearly everyone had their crombie mugged off of them.Must have been a dark day.One thing I've heard(in other places)is that the scousers are theives.Where does this idea come from?

Seen most of this lot before - and some is not really relevant - but, for a condensed look at some pics:

WARNING: There is a pic of a bloke with his 'walloper' out... so maybe not suitable for work. satisfied.gif

I was chased across Stanley Park, heading to Lime Street, in 1970, by combined Liverpool and Everton for my DMs.

Fortunately I could run a bit back then. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

They used to brick the MUFC 'specials' on the way to and from the ground, too.

A shit hole then - still is , IMHO.

When we got up to Lime St Station Liverpool on that day in 70, their was loads of Liverpool and Tranmere Rovers fans waiting for us, they are the ones who did the mugging that day, when i got into Evertons ground most of the Chelsea already had their kit mugged off them, and like Ed.. Me and me mate spent the rest of the day getting chased over Stanley Park,biggrin.gif
Not sure where Liverpool association with Thieves comes from, I hated people from Liverpool for years after because of football, When I later joined the Army got to know many Scousers, I found them lovely people. Also love Scouse Woman.biggrin.gif

Just to add what Ed said Liverpool, Everton and Tramere, supporters... they are all mates often from the same family so they gang up against supporters from the outside on match days.

I assumed the scousers as theives was a generalization(bigotry)Was just wondering why I've heard it.Thought it might have something to do with the original casuals from Liverpool(The Perry Boys)Stealing clobber from the boutiques of Europe when they were on Football excursions.

I see... yankmod, think you are talking about Liverpool supporters in the 80s, long after my time, smile.gif

I would be interested in a date for that visit to Guildford. In all my time in London I don't think I ever saw a single mod or skinhead in a Levi jacket. It was the first thing that struck me when I moved down (up?) there in 1968. Okay, I spent most of my time in an area between Croydon and Deptford, so S E London, but I did get up West and to Upton Park and other places.
