Sheffield United Subbuteo team catalogue ref: 009
If, like me, you were a fan of the table-top revolution of the 20th century you will most likely have had Subbuteo team reference 009 on your wish list, or it would have taken pride of place in your collection. In the 70’s United wore white socks so the fact that 009 had red socks was a minor irritation for me (attention to detail and all that.) Rejoice! from 1981 onwards, the team strip featured red socks and all was well with the world again. An upturn in United’s fortunes coincided with this. From 1987 onwards, the home strip went through a number of weird designs and 009 was our team no more, just Brentford and Estudiantes.
