The binners toughest hardmen and top boys out and about

Recommended Posts

To be fair, I loved it when we had the flags, the tifos and the choreos in the Barclay.

Obviously it's disgusting and sickening that it's Ipsh*t singing about stuff that happened before the invention of the internal combustion engine, but trying to get atmosphere into stadiums can only be a good thing.

That is so embarrassing. A half dozen pimply freds desperately trting to give us something to laugh at - as if that was ever need.

As to the 'drumming' I have heard that somewhere before

 

as to the above clip, I believe the series was set around the time the binners last won something

None alive before 2002, and many looking like they were not born before 2012 either

Didn't the Salvation Army used to do stuff like this

It depends what kind of an atmosphere they are trying to get into the stadium... 80s stadiums were full of atmosphere but I'm not sure I'd want that to return...

Uff, nope. Ipswich fans pot-shotted at Westy's appearance which was below the belt and football fans (including some Binners, IIRC) all went and supported him instead.

Not too keen on ripping up another fan's appearance there in the light of that.

I'd love to go back personally.  I find society has far more division, hatred and dark **** going on today driven by faceless cowards who can hide in the shadows and get in the minds of tens of thousands driving more hatred, fear and paranoia.

At least back then it felt like we had power as people, we were socially active, and through unification and a common love took a stand against corporate and government decisions.   There was far more good coming out of those stands than bad.

I agree with most of the second part, it was more the hooliganism and general fear that you felt going to football stadia that I was referring to...

And sadly you can now feel that fear walking around every city in Britain no matter who you are.  I'd go back in a heartbeat, personally.

Well, if you're white of course. Don't think you'll find many black people who would want to be sent back in time to the 50's or 60s

Wasn't alive to know how 50s and 60s were so can't really give a first hand opinion on that.

All I know is that in my experience compared to the 80s and 90s there's far more division and hatred today, be it through skin colour, sexuality, age, gender, beliefs, wealth, religion etc.  It's just awful nowadays.

Worse part is that there's nothing for these kids coming up to do, so they sit online and become subject to any number of ideals that go into their heads, which is why you have so much mental health issues in youngsters.  Add into that mix the availability of adult content which gets as bizarre as you want it, and dating apps that you swipe through people like a book.

I can't see how anyone thinks that society is in a better place today.

Back in the 80s you could go out to a youth club, local disco, football for a few quid and learn how to socialise and mix with different people in person.   And yes, this may mean that people clash, but it gets sorted and respect is learnt.

We are now being controlled, but it's not a conspiracy theory, it's just business.   The most revenue for the most minimum risk possible.  This is why owners don't want a strong unified presence of people in their grounds paying less per ticket like in the 80s.   Just as people who preach hate online are bringing in plenty of ad revenue - that's the system we've signed up to, as people coming together in power is not good for any large organisation.

And yes the 80s were not perfect, but we were a people, and I'd put more trust in people to sort themselves out than I ever would trust a corporation or government to get it right.  Because we have to sleep in that bed each night.

Really? I have lived in Leeds, Birmingham, London, Manchester and spent time and nights out in many other large cities and despite growing up in the bakcend of nowhere have only ever felt even the slightest bit of discomfort on a handful of occasions. I would never say that I felt fearful walking through a city in Britain...

Christ, I lived through the 70's and 80's. I remember walking in fear through Thetford in my Grammar school blazer fearing I'd be jumped on any second by a group of 1st generation cockney evacuees from Staniforth, to walking through Norwich in my denim jacket fearing I was about to be jumped on by a group of kids in parkas! And quite often it happened, and the race was on! If you were lucky you'd have met up with your mates and then there would be a Mexican stand off, but really if you weren't in the gang you were agin it. 

Then in Sheffield at Uni, there were places you'd go that if you didn't have a South Yorkshire accent you'd once again get chased out of there. If you looked half way trendy or weird you got chased out even before you opened your mouth. Then when the Miners strike was at its height and the poll tax riots were a thing, it were really difficult walking around the edge of the protests, either you were challenged for your support from the protestors or you were challenged by bored coppers who wanted to liven up the drudgery.

It's been ever thus. People hiding behind their keyboards "piling on" is no different to them days. But at least nowadays the streets tend to be left to mainly to people who have no truck with such petty rivalries.

Sorry @Google Bot¬†but I enjoy walking around cities nowadays, even the roughest parts of town. As long as you don't look like a journalist everyone tends to let¬†you get on with your life. Or maybe its because I now look like a¬†pensioner nowadays. ūüôā¬†
