Incredible story Stat ; I can understand Bobby Moore's empathy as he was treated really shabbily by England, the FA and West Ham- all of whom knew of his serious health problems from cancer, but thought better of than treating the great man as a human being. He was doing some sort of low grade Radio punditry when he died at just 51. A shameful end for such an England great.
Indeed, all of the '66 players were treated appallingly by the FA and their clubs. In one of the Bobby Moore autobiographies I read, there was an instance where he was escorted out of Upton Park because he was sitting in an area that his ticket did not grant him access to!

At one point, he was writing for the Sunday Sport! :shock:

Shrubby also told me that it was Bobby Moore that got him to go out to South Africa to play for Hellenic at a time when he (Shrubby) understandably felt totally demoralised.

And you could dream in those days as it really was possible...now if you want a PL Dream you can only start to think about it once the billionaire has bought your club.
The FA Cup is sadly worthless today and will never recapture it's old status. When Lincoln made the QF as as non league side recently; apart from an unenthusiastic "Well done" there was absolutely no "Shock" value in it, similar to that you got when Colchester knocked out Leeds or NL Wimbledon beat a good First Division Burnley away and held Leeds to a draw in the next round . And my pet detestation in today's game is the boring box goal nets EVERY team has! (shamefully including us!) I loved the different types of goals you used to get at every ground-you could tell which ground it was just by looking at the goals-and it was good to see the back of those nets hit ! I'd go as far as to say I don't think a decent goal has been scored in the last 20 years as the boring box goal nets have made them all look tedious and bland !!! How about a campaign for the return of REAL goal nets with those of the 60's and 70's being reinstated so we (or is it just me ?!) can start to enjoy watching goals being scored again !!!!!
Good point re the goal nets. Seem to remember the ones at Loftus road being incredibly shallow. The ball would often bounce straight out after going in.
There was a game once where the ball got stuck between the cross bar and the post in the saunction (or whatever that cross bit was called). Was it at Leicester ??

I remember watching that game, back when there wasn't football on almost every day of the week.

Indeed, a live game especially an England game that was important was like anticipating something exciting like winning the lottery or poking a beast, great days, oh for this disturbing Rus to go away!

Yep thanks Tim, loved watching England in those days as a 10 year old young dister, those days an England goal of that importance would provoke scenes of uncontrolled movement and sheer jubilation

There are also some crazy examples of modern day football being played on waterlogged pitches (IIRC, mainly in South America) available on YouTube.
And also in Aldershot, 10 November 2018, v Bradford City in the Cup.

Football was more genuine then, muddy pitches which is natural between October and April, numbers 1-11 and not 1-98 now, 1 sub and not 3 or 5 now, less pampering than now, no VAR crap, not worried about playing twice a week, replays in cups with no fuss, more English/ British players, FA cup million times better than now because a shock then was a shock example being Hereford beating Newcastle and leatherhead beating Burnley?
It was Wimbledon, not Leatherhead, Bob. And of course, it was the "old" Wimbledon club, the one that Milton Keynes stole.

Old Bob went to the replay of Wimbledon v Leeds in the next round. It was played at Crystal Palace, with a crowd of 45,701.

It was around that time that Leatherhead had Chris Kelly (the Leatherhead Lip) who scored the goal that put them 2-0 up at Leicester.

1975 was also the year that OB got married (and life as he knew it ended :lol: )

I was at this game in 2014 (in the main stand) on the Isle of Wight and it finished 1-0 to Newport.

The game about that night about 11 x miles away in Portsmouth was "Abandoned" due to the rain. They are made of tougher stuff on the Isle of Wight!

Thought I would watch BT tonight Man U V WBA as Celebrity was on. My goodness I have just had to stop watching , what a farce the elite game has become. WBA given penalty by the ref then he decides its not ,then gives Manchester a penalty which is saved,so he makes them retake it so they score.
So sad what elite football has become, Yes 60's and 70's was then golden age definately and our beloved Shots were in the football league too.

DP you should be very proud of your memory. It's amazing. I'm sure there was another one in league football too but to remember that is incredible.

Clive Allen had a clear goal disallowed after the ball hit the stanchion and came back out, I think it was at Coventry in the early 80s.
