Did anyone else see that Grim Up North (GUN) Retro were selling a retro version of the Adidas shirt from the early 80's online. This was until complaints were made by certain unknown individuals and the small company has now withdrawn the sale. This company have a long history of making excellent retro shirts for the Sheffield teams, Barnsley and Doncaster. They recently decided to make a Grimsby one after much demand, and tbh it looked pretty good.
I'm just wondering how many people would be interested in this shirt if he was able to continue getting them made.
BTW he has had to shut down his website temporarily as he has been threatened with legal action.

I’d be interested Tiny with one condition.

They must be able to retro my body as well so I could still get into a medium.  😕


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

To be fair, whilst we could lay blame at certain folk, in this instance pressure can come from other parties too.

I know in the past that clubs like GTFC who have wanted to make retro kits have had to be careful which ones...the Adidas ones for example have to be different to the point where it wouldn’t be worth doing because Adidas own image rights etc.

Really complicated. That’s often why Copa shirts can be expensive because of those sorts of things.

Naturally, the Adidas kit is THE kit everyone wants to see reproduced but I can’t see it...

Don't you mean deconstructing websites?




“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

Have you seen the NISA one done recently by the club? Looks superb. Gutted I missed out on my size. Same story for the Food Town one as well.

The Adidas one would sell more than the new season releases.

Don't know the tie in deal with the current kit maker but if they pulled off adidas to recreate it next season the sales would be huge.
I had this kit as a 12 year old and wish I'd kept it to be framed now.
