Was it Terry Phelan that used to always turn the top of the socks over as to hide the white hoops so they were all green or at least some times, or did I just imagine that, lockdown is not going well LOL

Used to have these socks. The strange part was the white foot. Very thick heavy socks too

One to sniff and one to wank with.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.
