This sold IDK for how much  on line  Vintage Glasgow Rangers FC Rosette from the early 1970's (possibly late 1960's??) RARE in magnificent condition

I used to know a guy who's family used to make football rosettes amongst other football related stuff and would sell them at games across the country. He told me his biggest sales by far were The

I don’t get how the filth get to hold up scarves En-masse (in Mass?)  as if they are the only ones who do it, and as a result we don’t. They’ll probably try to Nick the bouncy so we don’t do it anymore.

Nothing to do with rosettes, just an aside into football behaviour. 
 

Regarding clappers : I’m sure I saw a few at a Hearts match that was televised in the last few years.

They were called rattles & were banned in the 70s incase they were used as weapons.

In actual fact it was just 'weapons' that used them. 

Apart from the noise, you didn't really want to spend the game avoiding some wooden rattle being swung around inches from you when you're trying to watch what was happening on the pitch.

We give Rosettes to dogs and horses now, don't see much need for the things these days unless you are campaigning for your council election or GM seat.

Always called them ratchets. 

Am sure there were only just the odd times seen at our games in the late sixties, but are always highlighted in Pathe News reels, especially English cup finals of the late 50s, early  60s. Usually a wee posh guy with his dad shouting "Play up the Spurs" or similar.

Were used all the way back to 20s and 30s.
