Beaufoy School Boy. London 1970 By BrianDry
Some great photos again, thanks for posting them.
You can now pre-order this Brutus re-issue of a 1969 shirt.
I've seen a few vintage versions of this shirt on e-bay over the years. Nice to now be able to buy a new one.
great pics coming in lately - cheers lads!
Seeing as this pic has come up, does anyone remember lads wearing footy shirts (match day or otherwise)?
The lad on the left in the Lee Rider jacket and what looks like Wrangler jeans - not the smartest lad I'll admit (and this is way up in the frozen north!!) appears to have a footy shirt on (unless I'm mistaken). I thought this caught on much later. I'd have thought even if yer off to the match hell-bent on scrapping all day, ye'd want to look a bit sharper than that.
And I know its been touched on but footy scarves - match day (good for camaradarie but not good for sneaking into their end!) or non-match day - just cos its cold! I'm guessing its a bit different in London as in some places, you don't have to stray far to get into another club's manor, but other towns a lot safer.
Interested either way.
(also, just a small note, the picture's in reverse)
A few good little clips here......http://news.bbc.co.uk/panorama/hi/front_page/newsid_9349000/9349553.stm
Got about a bit,didn`t they!
I cannot remember Football Shirts being worn,in the `60s.All you could but was Scarves,Hats and Rosettas-from the Barrows outside the Grounds.,
Lovely. The pics are in good condition too - they must have meant a lot.
Oh dear lord, you're another one of those ghastly northerners!
But on the subject of BBC pronunciation, the one that drives me mad at the moment isn't a north-south divide issue.
It's simply a case of poor knowledge, because you know the women who give the swearing,sex,violence recorded warnings before certain programmes? Yea, well have you noticed how one of them pronounces "parental"?
Rather than the standard puhrentul she adds another R and says (par as in golfing par) par-rent-Al, she sounds the last A out as an A, so the al sounds like the name Al. The word parental contains 2 schwas (the uh and the ul) and she ignores both of them.
Mine was from Greenwich, looked a lot like this girl:
Is that your missus, 'Drop? If so, my apologies for appearing to drool over her. I'm not - the pic simply awakened some memories.
Great, Bunty! Has anyone else noticed that the first couple of hundred pages of the thread have disappeared? Or is my computer just in the Twilight Zone?
It's just the pegs they wear on their noses.......
Ah, each page now contains more posts.... it's been compressed..... sorry!
