    Evening Tricky...I was 16 years old and of course watched the match on TV. I remember watching Gordon Banks, George Cohen, Ray Wilson, Jack and Bobby Charlton, Alan Ball, Nobby Stiles,Roger Hunt and 3 others that I can’t remember their names.....it must be old age setting in!

    I actually had a conversation with someone around 5 years back and we talked about most of the money in the premier league comes from television income.
    We then saw a future when clubs would sell their stadiums off to real estate and play all their games at a national stadium.
    It don't sound so crazy now

    I can remember having a pint and a chat with Jimmy Case when he was at Brighton in the eighties. He thought that in future some of the wealthier players would be buying football clubs. I cannot see that happening in this country now, although Beckham has done so in the States.
