    I went to Chelsea quite a few times in the halcyon days - but not in recent years.... I never go 'away' with United, nowadays.

    Always received a warm welcome down there.:happy:

    Seem to recall - I'm going back 40 years - you had a handy guy called 'Eccles' - or have I got that wrong?

    I'm fairly sure it was you lot.

    Have done most of the London grounds - but not Milwall... doesn't mean we never ran into them at Euston, mind. :satisfied:

    That said, it was different back in the day, you'd get a kicking, maybe a broken nose, lose a couple of teeth, etc... but never anything too rowdy. I'm sorry for youngsters these days, the guns seem to have gone but they all seem to have knives.

    Somebody still ends up 'brown bread' - and for what?

    The 'beautiful game' - my arse. (God, I'm a grumpy old sod.):)

    Skinhead Football firms in the 60s/70, Looked and acted the part, Young skinheads 14 to 18 Fit looking and up for it, I always found the later Fat pop belly drunk supporters of the 80s comical.

    You must have been one of the few actual "Manchester"born United Fans.When they came to the Boleyn,it seemed most of the away "Support" were "Cockney Reds"- we used to chant"How could you support a Team-200miles down the Road". :)

    Been to Manchester a few times((but not in the 60s).The old Photos look good,Manchester has interested me,as well as Liverpoo,l with the old Clubs,they used to have there(I do not mean the Cavern).Been to a few Revival Nghts in both Cities,as I am partial to Northern Soul.

    Ooooooh... just gonna burst that bubble - I'm from Edinburgh! :D

    Been down here - (up there, to you, of course) - since 1965... so I could hardly be called a 'Jonny-come-lately', and when I started going to see them, in 1966 (but without the 'old man' around '68-'69), they hadn't really won anything.

    I had a few run-ins with the 'Mockney-Reds', usually because they thought they were as good as us! (ROFL).

    Old Trafford - like many other 'fashionable' clubs - is like the League of nations on match days. In truth, there are more Irish than Southerners these days, closely followed by many of 'oriental' origins. It's all cash, we need the money, so bring it on, I suppose.

    Only a game, we move on.

    My away trips, these days, means following my national side, Scotland. My lot are off today to Slovenia - we don't qualify for the proper competitions, so rely on 'friendlies', but, I have the builders in, have a new car coming at the beginning of March and, a missus who thinks money grows on trees... so I'll be watching this one at home.

    I'm not -and never have been a dancer... but i love soul and will, now I've found this forum, hopefully be meeting-up with like-minded souls(!) to catch up in the coming months.

    Good to hear from you.

    I stopped running when 'the man' stopped chasing me. (But fair play to you.) :rotflmao:

    ^^ it's a decent blog, some good bits on there! There's an amusing (aka lame) feud between that fella and the "film noir buff talk ivy" forum where they continue to talk shit about each other. a worthless waste of energy and has made the Talk Ivy forum unbearable for me anymore to even lurk and read in. I mean it's bad enough when you have various skinhead forums proclaiming "i'm more skinhead than you" but when you have guys into Ivy style bitching about "I'm more authentically Ivy than you" it's laughable.

    Russ, nice shoes. What 'do were you at?

    Cheers Jason. I went to a 40th birthday party. Don't remember posting that [​IMG]
    And why I came home with this ludicrous comedy beer balloon is beyond me .
