I started going regularly to Filbert Street in 1970, the golden age of the Boot Boy

I was just a spotty teenager, taking it all in, but the roaming gangs of skinheads (oxblood Docs, tight Levi jeans with braces and Fred Perry shirts, all from Silver Arcade) put a sinister mood around the place....especially when the 'Leicester Skins' bumped into the other team's boot-boys.

There were a few black skins accepted by the white aryans, but they all hated the Indian sub-continent persuasion, with cheerful little songs about "jumping up and down on a Pakistani until he was dead", glorifying the street sport of the day, called 'paki-bashing'.

Hard to imagine in these 2019 modern times of 'hate crimes' and 'me too movement' and the stiff penalties that are handed down by the modern beaks.

There were the books too (Skinhead and Suedehead), plus the underground ska and reggae music.

Whether you approve or not, the 70's boot-boy era was an interesting part of British youth, sub-culture history, and was rife in Leicester.

Wombat, there was acouple of Asian lads with Leicester even back then.

The song you're on about was"jump down turn around kick a Pakistani, jump down turn around kick a *** a day.

How wrong it sounds now but think of Fawlty Towers when the colonel was telling Basil about taking a women to the cricket !

Nice feedback guys, from music to the fashion, I am sure these around the 70's terrace culture are all smiling, thinking back to those days

Leicester Ratae (greasers) alongside the skins.... but we were all 'Leicester', and it kicked off every week and needed the numbers when London teams and Leeds, Man U etc came to town [^]

when some of the greebo's became skinheads a lot of them were stuffy fukcers and still looked liked Greebo's with new clothes. The Greebo's were mostly older if l remember right. The Barfoot mob were the best know but thats probably because we are from that end of town.

Taking up the Skinhead fashion in 1968 I never thought it was anything bar a fashion before it was Mods and Rockers.

The Mods and Rockers always enjoyed a dust up that culture was carried through to the Skinheads, tribalism is part of British culture no different to any other country.

yes, there was a battle on New Bridge street where all the old houses had been demoed. We were only school kids following the trouble, actually saw one of the Sunderland fans get his head pushed through a terraced house window but don't think this was the same game. Not sure if these were the late sixties or early seventies.

Are you sure it was Sunderland.

I remember major trouble when Newcastle stayed late and it kicked off in the city centre and also around St Andrews/Westcote area as they picked off unprepared locals.
I got done walking a girlfriend home on Upperton Road.

I think it was down to New driving time rules - coaches remained parked along western boulevard until about midnight

Alright mate
I only ask cos thereís a thread on Sunderland site I look at that mentions there being hell on for them
at Filbert St around that time.
Bumped into some of your mates from The Bakers in Manchester after the United game , had a good natter with them in that Revolution at Deansgate where we bumped into you the other year.
Be good to catch up pal

Yes bnet,major trouble with Sunderland in October 1970 along New Bridge Street with rubble being used by both sides from the demolished houses. Fighting in the Filbert Street End with it spilling onto the pitch all around Peter Shilton. Griff got hauled out with 4 coppers on his arms and legs. His old man went mad when he saw it all on Star Soccer on the Sunday afternoon. 1-0 to Leicester,Lenny Glover scored the goal!

Leviís red tag (63 and 6 from Midland Army and Navy) with proper selvedge (that thin red stitching stripe)
Bleach them too much and they fell apart quick.
Crombie with red satin in the top pocket, rarely saw a skin on a Lambretta (is that a foookin Veppy mate?)
Button down collar shirt, pleat up the back, couldn't afford Ben Sherman. Donít wear white, blue, pinkish, checked.
Liked jumping onto railway lines at stations, saw more on the tracks those days than trains.
Never suited a Harrington, Sta-Prest neither (though Tonics okay later).
Seemed to start moving North from London in 68, ĎChelsea Skinsí early Hardbrough boys called themselves.
Young skinny skins looked malnourished, older fat ones like saveloys. Loafers/brogues, segs and blakeys.
Sharpened metal comb, got stabbed in the leg. Darts, ninja stars. arsenal fan swung what looked like a crowbar in the ruck in the Kop in 68/69.
Couldnít grow sidies only bumfluff, so would leave a bit of long pair past the ears.
What happened to Wranglers?
Geordies came in relatively low numbers but with steel-capped miners boots. One or two of them looked as old as my Dad.

Sunderland always prone to throw building bricks ,one of the top Leicester townies who had gone down that match just for the day got caught and was very lucky to escape a prison sentence.

Roderick Taylor was in that programme v Stoke. His mam was my grandmas mate so knew who he was.
A couple of lads of the Monsell also got banned one being Tony Mason, and i'm mot sure if it was Bill Flowers or his brother.
