Is there any reason why he wore 31 though?

Just superstition, I think. His lucky number. I don't think he's ever revealed why.

 

I found these...

If I had to guess, I think he strongly believes that 13 is unlucky, and so he thinks that number backwards must be lucky. His birthday is March 1st, so it could possibly be related to that. Not sure.

Is it just me or do the foxes on these retro shirts have a wonky eye?

It does! My shirt arrived with the same wonky eye too.. Are they all like this? Looks odd

Yeah, they are all like this. Very strange.

Always thought O’Neill had the 31 as it was some relation to Brian Clough. 
 

This shirt btw, my favourite of all time.

Correct.

 

31 was the amount of Jack Daniels shots Cloughie would take before midday evey day.

Can we have a photo of the wonky eye, please?

Just checked my original from '95 (below) and it does indeed have the wonky eye so the reproduction is faithful to that.

Thanks. Yeah. I think @Rain King is right. The black didn't fill in the fox's right iris enough on the original, and they didn't correct that for the replica. I wonder whether that was intentional, or if they just didn't notice.
