Talking about supporting other teams in another topic...
When I was a lad over 35+ years ago, First and formost I was a Blue (and still am, and have the tats to prove it), just like my dad and all my family, but I did watch and cheer other teams. I suppose at the age of 10+ back in the 60's - 70's there were a lot of great names and players. There were also a lot who didn't get the headlines as much as others but were hard as nails such as Bremner, Hunter, Charlton, Madeley, Clarke & Lorimer to name a few.
Yes, I liked Leeds style of play, they were real tough and played every game as if their life depended on it. There's been many a debate whether the players from the 60s & 70s would get into a prem team now, but I look at it the other way, I doubt todays prem players would last 5 minutes with a 60s - 70s team.
So I was wondering if any "Old boys" or Old Girls" used to follow any other teams as a youngster
