    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Fantastic thread that I have thoroughly enjoyed but not really had confidence to join in with, so, sorry for lurking around.

    Suddenly I've got an in! Football and shoes, I was around when Chelsea, M Utd, Leeds, Hammers et al came to Baseball Ground and we thought we could take em on. You've reminded me of the fact that you could never be sure that you were stood next to someone from you're own parish, particularly when you double-taked because that group of lads were sharper than anyone else in the home end.

    We (I) were late with FPs. White or black was our colour for obvious reasons. I'm now 49 and first was at Derby aged 7, I got the inside track as my dad worked for the Rams so we used to sit behind the bench. In the infamous Franny Lee v Hunter brawl incident I'm on the you tube vid, I don't remember but me old man tells me it kicked off again in the tunnel.

    I tried at playing the game, failed. But joined the lads and had a fantastic time on away days following the Rams. Couple of stand out memories, we all went to Grimsby as Vicar casuals in a convoy of white transits. We were stopped outside Cleeethorpes and aprox 80 of us marched to the ground blessing all as we went. To ther one being hammered in Leicester caught in a small pub by Leicester fans asking us what the time was? Checking accents. Not a good day.

    The build up for us was the back end of Northern, Soul, Tamla etc, the gear (I was so poor I used to wear my dad's mustard yellow Harrington) boots brogues etc.

    Halcyon days, fondly remembered, thanks.

    Bought these brogues a month ago Cheaney for Herring. Took me back and love wearing em.

    To be honest, what I learned back then has never left me. I still love my clothes, watches, shoes and music and probably makes up for a fair OCD diagnosis!

    So, I suppose that's me, hope you don't mind me dropping in.

    Best,

    Cleav

    Hello Cleav, welcome aboard, football related disorder and tidy looking heavy brogues makes your first post a good one IMO.

    I could talk for hours on this subject, but it would be sailing too close to forbidden territory on this thread.

    The paisley scarf worn by the bloke on the right is exactly like the one I nicked from my dad in late 1967




    I thought I saw elsewhere (maybe on Gabriela's blog) that this was taken at Kettering.

    Welcome Cleav.

    Went to the Baseball Ground(before they pulled it down).Liked the atmosphere-even though it was closed.It reminded me of the old Boleyn Ground.


    Liked the Strides you were wearing with the Brogues.A sort of "Country Gent" Style.

    Thanks. Yeah was a great atmosphere and certainly very like the Boleyn. Best night there for me was Derby v Real Madrid European cup win, my hero Charlie George was on fire.

    Lots of these new grounds lack soul, no passion in concrete for me!

    Strides were from next, starting to get a little warm for em!

    Nice to be here, thanks again.

    Agree about the date on that one Brownie, I thought that when I first saw it - V neck, 'any white shirt' , tie and

    jeans, it's got to be '68 hasn't it? Bob or Buttons will tell us the month too. :D

    There's a picture of M-o-M wearing similar gear, he's at a demo. carrying a placard I think.

    Hello Cleav, welcome mate.

    browniecj - there's your individual in a two-tone suit (second photo) but also a few examples of the suit jacket/different trousers combo I was talking about. A nice spread of covering about 4 years , I would say. (perhaps none from '69?) Where do you find all this stuff Bunty? (and where ever it is, keep 'em coming!)
