Retro Round-Up: 28 June 2013

What better way to end the week than to rummage around in the bran tub we call 'Football Nostalgia' and pull out a few choice items we've found on the web during the last seven days?

It's what we call The Football Attic 'Retro Round-Up' and it's a service we provide free of charge just because we love you in a very special way.

Two English teams playing each other on foreign soil. These days, we'd call it a 'Game 39' scenario, but Spirit of Mirko reminds us that this sort of thing has been going on for decades...

Southampton fans: What your club manager did before he got to St. Mary's - a story of lank hair and hilarious badges courtesy of Old School Panini...

Ah, how we long for the good old days when 5,000 visiting hooligans wearing the colours of their favourite team were gently escorted by steam locomotive to Hull City's ground... It really did happen (sort of), according to Footysphere...

Long before the Masters series, inter-club five-a-side football meant only one thing - the annual Wembley Arena tournament which Brighton almost won in 1979, according to The Seagull Wrap...

Anyone remember Flik-Shot?  Old Football Games and Got, Not Got need your help to find information on this obscure game given away with Trebor sweets...

Football's a funny old game. One man's downfall can mean another man's triumph, as is capably explained by Soccer Nostalgia...

Rangers return to the world of Subbuteo... what do you mean you didn't know they'd gone? The Scottish Sun explains all...

eBay Auction of the Week: It's Ray Wilkins' number 6 shirt from the friendly match against Argentina in 1980 - the first time Admiral's 'World Cup 82' England kit was worn... and it could be yours for £5,000...

And that reminds us...

...you've got until midnight on Sunday 30 June 2013 to vote for your favourite England home kit since 1965. Does the Italia '90 kit light your candle or is it outshone by Alf Ramsey's simple '66 classic? If you haven't already done so, vote now before it's too late!

And if you're in the mood for making your opinion known, why not also vote for the worst thing about modern football? We've finally reached the Final of our competition and we want to know which is worse - 'Greed In General' or 'Rebranding / Ignoring club History'? Visit our Worst of Modern Football page now and tell us what you think!
