    i have found over the last couple of weeks watching old games that football today is nothing like the old game. it was a simple game back then and played with respect and no cheating by diving or fake injuries and rolling about like you have been shot. also the fitness and speed was nothing like today the speed of the game today is crazy. and the back pass rule when teams would kill the game or find a way of getting their breath back and just give it to the keeper

    also the referees was not a major talking point and did not control the game like today and players just got on with it. football back then was simple and the fans was a big part of the game and you really could make a difference to your team. i love the old game and watching them back now is a lesson to all the players in the game today respect each other and don't cheat and try and win a free kick or pen and get somebody sent off to win a game

    yep all of them as well. even the smells of the hot dogs/burgers carts outside they would push around ? also the dog shit cobbled aile at the bottom of the kippax to the platt lane stand we used to run out about 10 minutes from the end to get in the platt lane stand hahahaha. football was a joy and to think most still think it was just hooligans fighting each other every week
