    I think it used to be worse being insulted by little kids with such snipes as 'Why don't you put jam on your shoes and invite your trousers down for tea?' God I used to squirm at that.

    speaking of insults from the general public, I've been called "Urkel" a few times by little kids when I was in school because of the braces, buttondowns and the short trousers. I don't know how familiar you Brits are with American sitcoms, but he was an annoying character from a show called Family Matters which aired from 1989 to 1998. Here's a picture of Urkel. I swear if I didn't know any better I'd say the producers of this show nicked a bit of the skinhead style.

    On the terraces the greebos (fellow fans) used to chant at us:

    'Skinhead, skinhead over there,
    what's it like with no hair?
    Is it hot or is it cold?
    I don't know cos I'm not bald.'

    D'you remember certain 'big' clubs had a fair amount of greebos even when skins were taking over the world?

    Ones that come to mind - circa '69/70 - were Stoke, and Forest; yet others, from around the same Midlands area, like Derby and Coventry embraced the new regime.

    And the Birmingham clubs all seemed to go for the skin look, as did clubs in Liverpool, Manchester and even Newcastle.

    Or am I being selectively bigoted??

    For obvious reasons it always seemed the London clubs had the biggest following of skinheads, certainly remember seeing Sunderland fans who were almost to a man of the hairy persuasion, and yes Stoke definitely had a load of big hairy blokes - also recall Tranmere turning up again a load of hairies, but Preston in the same season all totally shaved heads.

    In Bristol, Rovers had a large following of greebos, in fact the 'leader' of our End was a hairy and it didn't bother the younger skinheads at all, but City were virtually all skinheads, can't remember them having any greebos come to think of it.

    It's no suprise Ed Vaughan that is where a heavy NWOBHM presence emerged in the next decade.

    I remember when I walked in to our house with my mate 'Cockney Bob', and my mum said, "You look like you both went to the same Borstal!"
