Never knew Bert Trautmann was part of Hitler Youth.

How the fuck was he allowed to play over here?

 

They didn’t exactly go 'do you fancy joining the Hitler Youth?' - my grandad wasn't keen on it but preferred it to see his mum raped, his dad drafted and being made to join anyway.

Plus anyone who breaks their neck and rubs it with "ow that smarts" look on their face but sees out the game is fine by me.

Hardly the most academic of sources.

He probably fought like most do - for their mates.

He wasn't shooting Jewish folk in Poland.

Don't besmirch my grandad, he hadn't the foggiest about the east, and he though Hitler was a cunt.

Who is besmirching your grandad ffs?

Most academic of sources? Its all taken from his biography.

He believed the propaganda of course, but he won an iron cross exterminating jews and russians. 

Its like a member of ISIS playing in goal for city next season.

The film about him was a decent watch.

Didn't get much of a cinema release which surprised me; I ended up having to go to St. Helens to watch it

The POW camp where he was based is now the site of my son's high school

The ref in this Huddersfield v Stoke game is having a stinker.

Missed as obvious a red card and penalty (separate incidents) as you’re ever likely to see. Both would have been in favour of Stoke.
