Apart from Sunderland and Rix I am really struggling to recognise them :oops: - is that Talbot with the Hitler moustache and O leary with the black top rt of centre at the back.

An odd thing is that Whyte Davis and Meade are either not there or hiding in the ET outfit at the top. :oops: Thought they were more integrated... Paul Davis was well underrated for us I always felt, great player. Disgraceful he never played for England (Like Geordie Armstrong)

That season ended with us 10th behind Watford (2nd) Ipswich and well behind The Scum :oops:

Was it just a fancy dress costume or was it a piss take at our scummy neighbours supposed jewish affiliations ? Bear in mind that back in the day the world wasn't as pc and people by and large took a piss take for what it was

Shame to see Sansom was on the bottle even back then.

Think Talbot is the Highwayman.

Devine in the German outfit.

Sunderland dressed in a school uniform next to Rix !

The outfit & Hitler 'tache I can see as a piss-take; but the right arm raised in such a fashion is distinctly iffy.

I'm not getting bent out of shape here and demanding he's hauled off to The Hague or anything, I just think it's best to avoid anything Nazi related for giggles.

Rix and Sunderland stand out.
Brian Talbot dressed as Dick Turpin.
Kenny Sansom as Andy Pandy!
Possibly Brian McDermott as Groucho Marx, hard to see clearly?
The Spanish matador type bloke, might that even be John Hollins?
A few of them are restaurant staff, but I just cannot make out who is the Chelsea Pensioner, could it be Peter Nicholas?

The German uniform is ill advised (ask Prince Harry) but I very much doubt it was in any way intentionally worn for any bigoted reason.

Putting it into perspective, I'd say you're the only one who's overreacting here!

Yes. Yes, you're right - I've totally gone and flown off the handle on this thread haven't I?

You don't do irony, do you? :roll:
