Clive Bissell in the Firm was the first time I can remember seeing it

It's been around for donkeys. Just more cameras around now

"but interesting point that we are lucky to be able to signify our club so easily. spurs would have a problem"

Yes indeed, hundreds of spurs fans giving each other the massive wanker sign in public would do at all

Just doff yer cap to the gov'ner (i.e. everybody else in the world) and get back in your fucking place.

First I recall seeing it was Freddie Sears when he scored on his league debut.

I like it personally , no cringe for me at all but I live in the Caribbean & am only back home maybe 1 month a year so see it far less than most .
My daughter when she was about 4 went up , doing the pose ,to a Hammer on the train at Hove on his way to a game ,the joy on his face was a thing of beauty .

It’s complete cringe. No wonder OTB thinks it’s brilliant.

He was probably doing it at Eurovision, the cunt.

Leeds fans are not banging their fists on their chests. It's different and more akin to a fascist salute. Unique amongst UK fans.

Fair dos, the Leeds salute is massive amongst their support. I've never seen another set of fans anywhere in the world use the same thing.

I blame Ray Winston for making it popular.

Had to Google that! Then watch it on YouTube. All I see is that banging on the heart that's done the world over in a million different settings - I'd never link that to Leeds in any way. It certainly isn't unique - players bang their chests all the time, but you wouldn't get another player in Britain doing the 'arms.

I appreciate the 'arms' might also be something to do with Wonder Woman et al, but to me it's unique in British football.

Leeds fans have been doing the 'Leeds Salute' to each other for many years.

Re: Crossed arms Hammers pose...
First time I ever saw it was a CFC mate that used to work for the post calling me out in his post van.... after that we caught on about a decade later... PERSONALLY I think its cringe... but each to their own... proper X factor for me...

Re: Crossed arms Hammers pose...
It's cringe. Never done it. Dunno when it started really.

Re: Crossed arms Hammers pose...
I love it. I can't think of anything else like it in football - what other fans can signal each other from a hundred yards? It's completely unique, it's not some silly made-up thing - it's brilliant.

First player I remember doing it is also Chris Powell (always wondered where he'd seen it, but he was a Hammer as a kid), but I remember the last time we had this thread someone dug up a picture along the lines of what Huffers said.

gph - that was something to do with Wonder Woman, I believe.
