    Newcastle v Arsenal 1984


    0 Not allowed!


    I derive much pleasure from seeing these games. The players, the kits, the stadiums, the haircuts, the tracksuit bottoms of the keepers.

    Its Newcastle v Arsenal on "Sky Super Sunday" this weekend, but just have a look at this exact same fixture 35 years ago...its almost like a different sport. Glorious though.

      Observations.

      1. A crowd of 27,000.
      2. Sad booing of Viv Anderson (not even remarked upon)
      3. An actual handshake goal celebration between Brian Talbot and Paul Mariner. How very Corinthian.
      4.Chris Waddle's catastrophic hair.
      5. Glenn Roeder's complete lack of a chin.

      There seems to be a lot more flow in the above game than the current ones. The time it takes for play to continue after the ref's blown his whistle is far quicker than now. It's literally seconds and then play gets bak to normal, like rugby league. I'd be interested to know how much in-play action there actually is inside 90mins these days. I wouldn't be surprised if it was around 60/70 mins. Would be good to see the comparisons with then and now.

      blimey that Ipswich side was a shadow of the one Bobby Robson had
      under him they finished 2nd in the league twice
      and won the FA Cup & UEFA Cup

      talk about a change of fortunes
      under Howard Kendall Everton went on to win the league twice

      wise words from Bertie Mee and the end there

      Indeed. A sport I loved very much indeed, and miss so very much. This currently, pass, pass, skill, is all very pleasing to the eye, and wonderful for the bank balance of everyone involved, but I really do miss the sport I first fell in love with.

      Having said that, beyond the pitch; the racism, the violence, and the constant danger round every corner, and within ever dilapidated ground, is best left very much in the past.

      Could the latter have moved on without changing the game so dramatically? I think so. But it's happened now, and it's a one-way gate, there is no going back. Top video though mate, good to watch. Dangers are, I can lose myself down YouTube wormholes for HOURS once I start calling up old games.

      You're not wrong @Gritt23. I found myself heartily chuckling at the BBS on their Zaha thread when someone amusingly made reference to Everton not being able to afford him because they were still paying Hans Segers wages.

      What did I do? That's right, I spent 30 minutes on YouTube watching extended highlights of Everton v Wimbledon 1994, culminating in Segers keeping the scousers up by letting the ball roll under his body 8 minutes from time.
