Your retro Manchester United team photo of the day

Stay classy, 1982.

WE CAN’T HELP but love this team photo of a Ron Atkinson-managed Man United side taken in 1982.

Of course, the typically 80s haircuts and odd-looking jerseys are no big surprise.

However, what truly makes the pic is the array of electronics, which were provided by shirt sponsor Sharp, shoehorned into the photo, including a boombox, a TV and a cassette — not the most subtle form of advertising, we think you’ll agree.
