[WWI] Collecting Kits

Could be slang for "Uncontrolable urge" or else it's referring to Cliff 
Jones, who played for Swansea, Tottenham and Fulham, and also featured in 
the famous Welsh side that reached the quarter-finals of the 1958 World Cup 
only to lose 1-0 to Brazil; the goal being scored by some 17-year-old called 
"Pele".  Alternatively, it could be "Tom Jones"; famous Welsh popular 
singer, heart-throb and collector of ladies under-garments.

And, yes, I do suffer from this "urge" but my accumulation of kits has 
slowed significantly in the past year.
