Stuff You Simply Don't See In Football Team Photographs Anymore

Number One (... in an occasional series): The Mad Bloke in the Back Row.

Beautifully modelled on this 1971 Leicester City team photo by not one but two of the first team squad. Rodney Fern (fourth from the left, back row) and Malcolm Manley (farthest right, back row). Neither of whom, frankly, look like the kind of bloke you'd particularly fancy meeting down a back alley after a night out at a nightclub in Leicester city centre. Especially if you were in your best whistle, didn't want to get your wedgers scuffed and were minging of Old Spice and with a belly full of Double Diamond.
Next time in Stuff You Simply Don't See In Football Team Photographs Anymore we'll be featuring yet another now long-gone example of why the 70s were arse, "The Nasty Little Evil-Eyed Ginner down the front."
