Smile Ajax in August 1986 - Does anyone recognise themselves?




Whilst clearing out drawers and cupboards my missus came across this old photograph. It was taken at Ajax in August 1986 (32 years ago, bloody hell.) It was an exhibition "friendly" tournament, which didnít fall under the European ban that was on English teams at the time.

The tournament is now probably better remembered for the battling that went on between United and West Ham on a boat called the Koningin Beatrix which sailed the night after our day crossing.

I wonder if anyone recognises themselves? Iím the knob-head in the middle with the Morrissey style haircut. I remember the lad to my left was from North Wales and the 2 lads either side of my shoulders were from Langley in Middleton.

Can you really not see the photo? You're right though the 2 lads from Langley were a bit confrontational it has to be said.

Have you set the album to private? It needs to be public.

He certainly bears more than a passing resemblance. I remember that he got off his head on space cake in Amsterdam centre, he just sat there spaced out watching Bob Dylan live at the Budokan on a big screen.
