  1. I'm not saying he wore this shirt all season, I'm saying this was the shirt he was first given. When he first joined Wayne had lost his place as the starting number 9 and that was being shared around, so Andy was given this 16 shirt until it was agreed which numbers him and Wayne etc would play in. There was a very short period of time where he wore this shirt in various promo, training, and also in a couple of matches. I've had this verified by the club (from their records) and other sources, so I'm happy. The player's shirts of that time were very different to replicas, badgers were sewn (not plastic & glue pressed), numbers were flocked, collar has different stud presses and the shape of the shirts is slightly different, which means placement of badges etc.
  2. I've researched this one before buying because I too was sceptical. He joined in March 1992 at the tail end of the 91/92 season (coming from Fulham). This is the shirt/number he was allocated/given on arrival for the final few matches before they'd sorted what shirt number he'd be wearing In 92/93 when we moved to the first iteration of Purple and Lime (with TS sponsor), that's when he was given the No 9 shirt. He wore this number because the number of subs were fixed, but the shirt numbers weren't, so you could have 3 subs with varying numbers. the only mandatory thing was the starting line up had to be 1-11, so you could have subs with other numbers. Squad numbers were introduced (not mandatory) in 93. At the end of the 91/92 season the shirt was given back to the club and kept in storage (by Beryl Fudge) and when Andy left it was signed by him along with other playing shirts of his and snapped up by various people who managed to get first refusal. I purchased it from one of those people and I contacted the club to verify/trace through the history of it.
  3. Love it! Some crackers there! Is that sig's I can see on the B.C.F.C.82 shirt? Here's my prize possession in my modest collection, which you might appreciate. Andy Cole's playing shirt (denoted by the embroidered badge rather than printed as it was on the replica shirts) from the season he first came on loan to us, signed by the great man himself...
  4. 14th May 1997 was the match. As far as I know the shirt was made specifically for that game and was used with the old P&L Nibor/Robin kit shorts and socks. The shirt was sold in a very limited batch of Adult only sizes. I've seen it appear a couple of times on Ebay so there are some in existence, but they normally crop up in silly XL/XXL sizing, which due to the fashions of the time are like tents!
  5. Lots of rare shirts from the 70's and early 80's, but the rarest shirt/kit from the 90's (when replica shirts became mainstream) through to today is most certainly this 3rd kit which was a reverse of the legendary purple and lime: Used once in 93/94 (versus West Ham, we lost 2-0), but never sold, and to the best of my knowledge all thrown away. There used to be one hanging up in the legends bar, so there's at least one in existence which I suspect the club still have somewhere, but none have ever surfaced. I've spent years trying to track one down, but to no avail. In 94/95 when we changed to Auto Windscreens and a crest badge, the colour scheme was very briefly used again for the 3rd kit in late 94 (eventually being replaced with a black shirt in 95) and those shirts are sometimes available because player kit sets made it out into the public domain, probably given away by the club. But the DBC sponsor & Robin version from 93/94 is something that eludes us collectors.
  6. These were only sold in a very limited amount of sizes and just a single order was made by the club to Uhlsport because at the time they didn’t sell that well. I’ve been looking out for one of these for my collection, for many years, but I’ve not seen a good/mint one for sale. At current market values I’d say it’s at least a £100+ shirt all day long.
  7. As mentioned, there are two TS shirts, the original one worn from 90 through to early 92, then the black crackle version worn for 92-93 before we changed sponsor on the same shirt to DBC. The first shirt was tight fit so are true to the period size, but the second shirt was made in an era where very ‘baggy’ was the fashion and S/M/L was a size up/down. I have the second shirt (signed by the whole squad) in my collection and it’s a 40-42... but it is HUGE, more a XL/XXL in today’s money!
  8. Found this whilst reminiscing. I recalled Orr having that clear shot from the edge of the box, but this suggests otherwise...
  9. I remember heading up there with so much expectation and excitement for what should have been a great game, only for... Mike Riley to be conned by their play-acting Us to be totally outplayed Us to be hoofed around for 90mins by Tiny Penis's dirty tactics and route one football. The only player that put in a good shift for us was Trund's who Johnson played too wide (again!) and left out on the wing on his own with no support. After the game (after being held back in the pen by the police and treated like animals) we bumping into him on Stanley Matthew's Way when walking back to the car. He sounded and looked gutted, apologising to me and my bother for the team's performance. A top bloke. A very frustrating game which saw our Automatic Promo hopes vanish. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/eng_div_1/7344104.stm
  10. Context - In 1996 I started University, it was the age of the internet, forum, email etc etc. I did a BSC in Computing, so I have been around 'the internet' and worked in Digital Marketing/Social for nearly 25 years. In that time I have used, helped run, and even owned, many many forums, all of which have very high traffic levels. So I hope you can agree I have some knowledge in this when I make my observation of you.... I can put my hand on my heart and say that I cannot recall, not once, encountering a poster in a thread thread where their view is disagreed with by EVERY person who has replied to a thread so vehemently. There's not one message of support, not even a glimmer of anybody backing you up. Your posts/views have been argued with factually, subjectively and ultimately in a way that shows/proves you are wrong. Yet for some unfathomable reason you still continue with your path of blind ignorance. You remind me of my Grandfather, who came from a generation of stubborn minds & souls. He took thoughts & beliefs to his grave that his whole family could see were wrong, yet he vocally dismissed things. The 'joke' within the family was that if there was a white horse in a field, and my grandfather said it was black, no matter what anybody would say he would insist it was black, even if the damned thing was white and the owner was stood in the room telling him it was white.. It's 2019, there's no shame in being wrong and admitting you may have got things wrong, all you are doing here is dragging yourself further down a path of no return.
  11. No I’m Twentyman, and so’s my wife.
  12. Thats the difference between you as reasonable & decent person, and the pig ignorant dumb ***** who continually take flares into football grounds and/or condone it. As some of the cretinous replies on this thread show, you can’t educate pork
  13. Damn that tight-mouthed Larry, Or are you talking out of your bottom...
