    An episode from the 1937/38 season...

    I don’t think the Auths. were as finicky back then, but you’d have to check that year’s rules. I can remember that as recently as the ‘70s (maybe early’80s even), when Celtic v. Hibs would take place with both sides playing in green and white!

    Away kit at home

    I didn’t like last night’s kit, and hope we don’t have to wear it again. Was it imposed on us by the manufacturers? Arms twisted by Adidas, or whoever, to sell more kit now we’re a ‘bigger’ club, albeit shoehorned into simple white? I’ve personally never ‘got’ the compulsion to dive into same...

    Things that have disappeared from football matches

    A bit longer, I think. It could withstand the defeat to Scotland (‘67) being a Home Nation, but once foreign teams got wins at Wembley (Czechoslovakia?), parts were replaced.

    Things that have disappeared from football matches

    I think it used to be fingers. You used to see the 4th official testing the board and then a thumbs up from the Ref. when he’d got it right. Always got interesting when teams were making subs at the same time!

    Things that have disappeared from football matches

    I was hoping noone had noticed my misremembrance! Tbf they did seem to play Stoke a lot in the cups around then, too.

    Things that have disappeared from football matches

    I think the Arsenal v. Stoke saga was the start of the slippery slope for Replays in general.

    Matt Busby

    Is it a military trait, I wonder? Portsmouth’s programme was describing the colour of Team ‘knickers’ and ‘stockings’ throughout the 1960’s. (I was at that age to find it amusing.) The Arsenal war time programme must be a collectible too. Advertising the next game as Spurs v qpr at 11am on...

    Worst signing of the last decade

    That’s easy for you to say! The older I get, the harder it is to fix memories. Who was in our team at the start of the decade?
