    Tommy Booth was at one of our branch meetings late last year and he was a bit of a footballer, who started off in defence then moved into midfield when Colin Bell was injured and even played up front a few times. He did well in all these positions and I asked him if, being so versatile, he'd fancy himself in Pep's team.

    His answer was very interesting: "Fuck off. I'm 69!" So there you have it.

    Bet Franny Lee would have given Stones a sly kick up the arse...

    You can't compare our 68 team with today's. They would be destroyed.

    On yesterday's pitch with yesterday's ref it would be a record win, but with old school rules on a churned up pitch the current crop would be down to 8 players having used all the subs due to injuries by half time

    Football has evolved a huge amount since then. If you gave the '68 team a few months training under modern methods and tactics it could be close but ultimately it's hard to imagine Pep & co not winning handily. What they did last season was unprecedented in English football, it's the greatest season in 150 years of the domestic game tbf

    The current team is multi national. You cannot compare a mainly British team like the 68's with the current squad

    Would the 1 be Franny Lee’s penalty :-)

    Pretty much agree with this, but 8-0 would be my prediction. 13-0 is a bit disrespectful, man ;-)
