Cockney Reds
Does anyone know any of these wankers and their mob from the 70s and 80s?...

What a bunch of embarrassing, glory-hunting fucking wankers...

Re: Cockney Reds
A few memories of my first visit to OT on a cold Tuesday night in 1983.
A geezer on the train up, was selling tickets for the seats in the home end (to the left of the away terrace). we must've looked puzzled and said no thanks. Who sits in the away seats at football matches? I'm sure we were the first.
We were shit, Devo got a consolation as we lost 1-2.
In the escort coming out, one of their loons drove his Puch 90 (I kid you not) at OB sparking mayhem!

On the train home, saw one of our lot from the seats who'd been sussed in the bogs at HT. Dozens of Stanley knife cuts on his face...

No cockney reds on the train btw. I used to see them mid 70's come through Chelmsford for night games on their coach (I was at school there). Always plenty of West Ham around the bus station!

Eerie

That's because its a c&p from the Hooligan books they are writing.

All the proper old school ruckers seem to write in long paragraphs. Not a knock, just an observation.

And the clearest sign that Sold0 definitely WASN’T involved in any tasty stuff back in the day, regardless of his ‘tales’ of yore.

I was 4 in 1975, but like everyone else was in the North Bank running the Red Army.

Must have been about 125,000 people in the NB that day.

I think we are talking about the same day as I do recall they were in the second division at the time.

As you say, hordes of them. They had massive away support in those days.

I couldn't believe what was happening

"Come up the northbank " as they were pushed onto the pitch - I have never seen so many scary hammers as that day

It was as if the east end turned out to welcome they

This was West Ham v Man Utd at UP 75, it doesn't show anything much apart from the packed crowd, most of the agg went on before the game kicked off, although it didn't stop.

This was definitely retribution for Man Utd taking the piss at UP in 67 and about East End pride, not just the Mile End Mob, but the word must have got around that Man Utd were coming on mass as I swear thousands, anyone who was up for it in the East End that day turned up and got stuck right in, many no doubt had no interest in football, just didn't want the stigma of Northern hooligans taking over their local manor and made sure they would be a hefty price.

Shame they didn't show the goals as it was a great game that we won 2-1.
