When I woz a bairn in the 1960s it wasn't unusual to have large families. A family ower the road from me at the time had 10 members and were on the breadline! (I woz an only child)
Other richer families with just 2 or 3 kids used to feel sorry for them and give them their 2nd hand clothes, that their kids had worn oot!
They were caalled 'hand me downs' and one poor kid from the family of 10, who would be seen in their old clothes, woz cruely nicknamed 'Rodney Rag' by the richer kids!
It's exactly the same at NUFC now, where we are lookin' for 'scraps' and 'cast offs', that the likes of 'The Arse' and Moan U divvint want, az 'Brucey' holds oot the beggin bowl, pleadin for 'hand me downs' from the richer clubs!
It's where we are I'm afraid and we'll just have to grin and bear it and hope against hope that the takeower finally happens!🙏
