Not even Wolfie was a Ter­ror at heart

The Non-League Football Paper - - NEWS -

AS a staunch Dul­wich Ham­let fan it was in­ter­est­ing to see the Ground­hop­per’s view of a visit to our arch-ri­vals Toot­ing & Mitcham United, in The NLP last week (De­cem­ber 11).

In his re­port of the visit of Faver­sham , he men­tioned the slo­gans of the fans in­clud­ing ‘Power to the Peo­ple’ and ‘Free­dom for Toot­ing’, which were of course used by Wolfie in the clas­sic late-70s sit­com Ci­ti­zen Smith, leader of the Toot­ing Pop­u­lar Front, played by ac­tor Robert Lind­say.

It’s worth not­ing, how­ever, that whilst Wolfie’s catch­phrases have been ap­pro­pri­ated by mod­ern­day Ter­rors fol­low­ers from the ter­races, in the ac­tual se­ries even Wolfie couldn’t bring him­self to sup­port his lo­cal side from Ry­man League Di­vi­sion One South – and was in fact cast as a Ful­ham fan!
