It's been discussed before but a similar worthwhile project to preserve some of the club's heritage would be to collate rare video footage of past CUFC matches.

I always feel some of our big moments of which plenty of footage should exist are absent from youtube - Peter Murphy's goals to win the 2005 play off final and the 2011 JPT final for example.

There's also the 3-1 win at Man City on MotD in February 1985 - last time this was mentioned at least one person said they had a copy but couldn't be arsed to forward it on to someone who could convert it.

Some of this earlier stuff which probably only exists on home-taped VHS will be lost for good unless it is collated soon.

That looks horrific. Surely they should be framed

The cost of framing 20+ shirts isn’t cheap, compared to the deal on the shirt hangers!

The shirts up at the moment aren’t permanent, merely an example!

The plan is to catalogue the last 30yrs worth of Home shirts around the wall. Hopefully it will look smarter and more organised when done.

Win or Lose, Up The Blues!

Think I paid £25-30 to get my centenary shirt framed by the place in Denton Holme. So would be quite a sizeable cost to frame them all but agree they look awful hung like that and I would imagine pretty easy to go “missing”.

The problem is that they are on display, without anyone knowing it's an example and there are all there - it looks so tinpot.

Something like the national football museum - I don't imagine it'll cost much. they may have some leftover if you ask them.

At least we’re not Stockport

If only there was a joiner at the club that could knock up a dozen or so frames for the shirts to fold round.

If only there was a commercial team who could co-ordinate businesses to sponsor the framing of individual tops for a small fee.

Such a shame that AJ & EWM don't have the money to do a proper job Oh! Hang on.
Agree about video of united matches someone needs to find as many of the old matches and put them together before they are lost forever. Would also show younger fans exactly why us oldies harp on about the good old days in the old second division and our one season at the very top.

Typical three amigos regime - everything done half-arsed. It doesn't look like they've given it much thought.

I've seen better displays of football shirts in Benidorm bars than that rag tag shite served up here.

Can believe anyone has put them shirts up and thought "That looks good"

Deary me we are Donald Ducked.

For once I feel as though I can mock this display as if the person who 'threw this together' were to as me if I could do any better then I could confidently answer 'yes'.

It’s just absolute tat - it’s just utter rubbish and poorly thought out/planned. It looks tinpot

It got published via social media. It’s got ripped/criticised and is going viral, as other clubs are commenting on it.

I don’t want to complain for complaining sake, I want a new hobby, but come on!

I wonder what say Cusg had in it, if they had any I’d give up.

At least we’re not Stockport

Surely you could get the frames made in a job lot for less than £20 a pop, then they could ask for people to pay for one in return for a small business card placed in the front.
This frame is sponsored by..........
I’ll even be your first customer stick me down for one.

Imagine being our potential new January signing, driving up here, realising we’re not 30 mins from Manchester, walking through this esteemed corridor of old shirts hung up with chewing gum before going into a meeting with some odd ball in a polo neck to discuss your one year deal.

I honestly think that they say temporary in the same breathe as they say that they are reluctant custodians.

Hopefully they will get shanned into framing the shirts before they get ruined by being exposed as dust collectors.

Says a lot when Mr Day couldn't find a grand to get this sorted, it is hardly like he is being asked to shell out for a new player.

What I want to know is why they are stuck away in some offices that 99% of the fans never visit.

I look on a rugby league merchandise page on Facebook where shirts can go for very large sums usually NRL ones when I posted a picture of a shirt I bought when I followed GB in 92 to Oz that's been stuck in a drawer since I bought it due to it being to small,to get a view on its value I was warned against framing it as it would decrease its value!
Got a hell of a shock when folk commented on its value aswell...not saying these shirts are valuable but perhaps that's in clubs mind although I'm of opinion like everyone else would look way better framed

Be just and fear not

Like everything the club does under this board, on the cheap and looks awful.

Absolute dust collectors as well.

What’s happened is this:

CUSG have bought some Shirt Display Hangers. They were dropped down to the Club, and a little plan conceived for the hanging.

The Club’s handyman has then put the Hangers up, and somebody (No idea who until the next CUSG Meeting) has obviously tried a shirt to see how it works, then decided to put a few up randomly for now (Well meaningly I’m sure).

Personally, I’d have left the Hangers empty, as more have been ordered to fill the stairwell, and I see no point in hanging until they’re all ready to go.

What was planned was 30yrs worth of Home tops, in chronological order as you go up, which I think will look a lot smarter than the random mix that is currently up.

There’s also plenty more Shirts in the box we’ve collected, so some were pencilled in for framing properly and then going up in the Main Stand Bars when they get refurbished next year.

The idea behind using these Hangers, is you can inter-change over time if you want, so they will be able to be washed if they do collect dust.

A couple of folk I know have seen them and think they look better in the flesh than on the Picture. I’ve not been down since they went up so can’t say!

Win or Lose, Up The Blues!

I was down there for tickets & wasn't overly impressed by the way they were displayed, some were hanging better than others ( maybe some are larger shirts ) would look much better in frames

What I have enjoyed over the last few months is the evening news reports of historic matches and photographs of the old games.
Those pictures are priceless and should be displayed everywhere. Big crowds, old parts of brunton, great scenes etc. That's what should be filling corridors and concourse like other clubs. If I was the club official I'd be on to the en&s and working with them to create a brilliant gallery that would create a lovely historic footprint. Go for it everyone..

Great idea.

I always like the look of what Fulham and West Brom have done by putting images like this, on the inside of the end wall of stands.
