- The Only Team in Manchester!
That was just the point. They were good enough not to resort to the dirty way Revie had them playing.Which started in the 60s when I were a lad, not the 70s. Their fans were just as big a set of bastards even in those days.
Their team were a bunch of cloggers from numbers 1 to 11, were probably the first team to develop the concept of gamesmanship, and none of them would bat an eyelid in hacking an opposition player down to stop them.
To give them their due, they did have some very good players (spit), but knew all the dark arts.
Just like the Italian national team from around the same time.
