Kitman: Lee Clark’s ‘Sad Mackem Bastards’ t-shirt
New Huddersfield manager’s past fashion faux pas
Since Lee Clark was unveiled as Huddersfield Town’s new manager today we thought we ought to pay tribute to his playing career. Or, to be more precise, the moment he made one of football’s greatest wardrobe-related errors of judgement.
Geordie boy and former Newcastle player Clark took the not-very-well beaten track to Sunderland. But he was still a Newcastle lad at heart, and attended the 1999 FA Cup final wearing a t-shirt bearing the slogan Sad Mackem Bastards. Strangely he never played for Sunderland again…
Best of luck to Lee at the Galpharm Stadium.
