Can remember Charlie George being popular back in the day. Wasn't a footy fan but heard about him because the tabloids were still trying to wring mileage out of the very serious issue of Men With Long Hair.An Arsenal fan who I used to drink with, and who is a similar age to myself, had two daughters, called Charlotte and Georgina. He named them after Charlie George, his favourite player in his formative years.
As George had scandalously long floppy dark hair he was all over the tabs.
As I recall, his manager wasn't having any of it and closed the issue with a remark that his players' coiffures didn't matter because 'They don't play with their hair.'
