Retro Snapshot: Uwe Rosler Happily Poses In ‘Uwe Rosler’s Grandad Bombed Old Trafford’ T-Shirt, 1995

By Chris Wright

Fairly difficult to imagine this kind of photo-op getting past the Man City PR censors: Former City striker and current Wigan manager Uwe Rosler posing at Maine Road wearing an “Uwe Rosler’s Grandad bombed Old Trafford” t-shirt as part of an FA Cup promo in 1995…

The photo was apparently taken by long-serving professional football snapper Bradley Ormesher, a two-time winner of the Barclays Photographer of the Season Award no less – that said, as far as we know, he didn’t win anything for this particular effort.

    That’s an Avro Lancaster bomber. I think you’ll find that they were flown by the RAF, not the Luftwaffe…

  2. Straight Dave says:

    Stay classy, Manchester City.

    ..and how did that war work out for Granpa Rosler again?
    “there were 10 German bombers in the air…..”
