A couple of things struck me immediately watching that - the first was that there was hardly a back pass worthy of the name in the whole game and the first thought in the players' minds seemed to be was how do I get this forwards while keeping possession. Of course they didn't always get the pass right , but then it was " how do I get it back" as quickly as possible. The second point was that our heroes of yesteryear were just human beings and made mistakes just like today's players.
Colin Todd (what a player) gave the ball away on his charges forward Keogh like 3 or 4 times inside 5 minutes. Alan Hinton (the best crosser of a ball I've ever seen ) kept hitting the first man and Roger Davies was struggling to control the ball when it was hit up to him.
In those days the only manager that mattered sat in the dugout while the critics shared their opinions with a few mates over a pint unlike today where we have 27000 managers who all have an opinion to share on social media about how poor a particular player is and he should never kick a ball for the club again.
I'm not being nostalgic I'm just concerned about the seemingly only way to play modern football that today's coaches understand (dictated by the fear of losing no doubt) is to pass sideways, back, sideways and back to the keeper several times a game- there is little or no excitement left in the game to get old timers like me going to the match because we want to rather than through habit which last season certainly was.
Here's hoping for a bit of excitement next season!
