Football Casuals: It Started In The North?

Being a Football Casual was and is in its simplest form, about one-upmanship. The term casual is one that tends to stick the most, particularly the London contingents but there were also ‘Perry’s’ from Manchester and ‘scallies’ from Liverpool, dressers from Leeds and trendies from Leicester and numerous more other regional names for a similar type of football fan. People were literally making it up as they went along and it was exciting to know you were in on something so new and eventually anyone wearing casual’s gear became simply known as their Boys.
