Flicking through Youtube and they had an episode of the Big Match from 1980, City v Bolton at Maine Road. The game ended 2:2 after being 2:0 up early in the second half. So many changes to the modern game though, some expected others not so much. The pitch was shocking compared to today's standard. The pace of play was so much slower, possibly due to the pitch. I miss Maine Road. The players not protesting any referee decisions. Even the injury time penalty against us. The players not appealing for every throw in, goal kick or corner. Players getting heavily tackled and just getting up with no rolling around. Tony Henry was not a patch on David Silva. No fancy shaved or bleached hair styles but plenty of comb overs and mullets. How strange it is to see a Goal keeper picking up a back pass. Players running off when being substituted. Wooden advertising boards around the ground, The referee staying put on the touchline when a corner is taken and staying there until the ball leaves the area. Peter Reid looked like a 60 year old while playing for Bolton. When a goal was scored everyone celebrated rather than waiting to see if it had been given by VAR. Malcolm Allison being interviewed in the dug out by Elton Welsby as the game is in progress. No fucking stupid dancing goal celebrations. Tueart was a player. We are totally spoilt by watching the current team.
