    You think those shorts were bad!  In my 1947 Charlton vs Preston programme it states that the players were wearing knickers!!!
  • I think they wore knickers until the early to mid 60s.
  • The top right hand side of that programme page also mentions 'Football Commandos' !!

    Might have had the same problem as Nolly

  • Loving the old 2-3-5 formation.

     

    Imagine it now:  

     

    RB-Solly    LB-Wiggins

    RH-Morrison    CH-Taylor     LH-Hughes

    OR-Green  IR-Hollands  CF-BWP  IL-Kermit   OL-Jacko.

     

    Attack ,attack, attack, it's the way forward surely. !

    You mean you don't think 2-3-5 and think Green is outside right?
  • The next match was a 3.15 kick off. Was that because of TV?

    Sorry to be a smart arse but even if live football had been televised then it is highly unlikely they would have covered a midweek Football Combination (reserves) Cup Fixture.   
  • I think kick offs moved with daylight hours with 3.15 being as late as they ever got (certainly no 5.15 kick offs). Kick offs in winter were often 2.00 or 2.15. I remember the floodlights going up - I would guess around 1960 (someone must know) and then kick offs started to standardise as 3pm.

    Why is it unlikely - There weres very few other TV programmes not even Corrie had started yet. This seems like a prime game for coverage.

    Surely not our reserves v Leyton Orient reserves, especially as the game was scheduled for 5th March 1947 which was a Wednesday afternoon!
