Love Hearts and Rangers and Celtic…

We’re not sure that Swizzels Ltd had entirely thought this promotional offer through…

The juxtaposition of Love Hearts with messages like ‘Be Mine’, ‘Ever Yours’ and ‘You’re Sweet’ with the fierce sectarian rivalry of Rangers and Celtic in the mid-70s doesn’t quite sit right.
We are also struggling to see the link between the marauding hordes of the 1976 version Manchester United’s Red Army and messages like ‘First Love’, ‘Dream Girl’ and ‘Kiss’… but that might just be us.

If you sent your 20p and two Love Hearts wrappers off for a badge let us know how you got on…

‘Be Ours’ and buy the retro-footy-grumble-fest ‘Got, Not Got’… runner-up in this year’s Footy Book of the Year, and this Xmas’s must-have stocking filler. Available from branches of WH Smith and Waterstones or online here
