Thanks Doc for this vide. Haven't seen you around lately. a good match. It should have been a red card. Wood already got the ball and all of sudden that Villa striker wack his head to our goal keeper. We played mostly with 10 men. Woods came as a right winger. but he won't do much damage on that part of the pitch.

Back pass is still allowed. :)
Saw glimpses of Duncan's brilliance in that match. Good to see the Busby babes play. Like G. Pegg's position, left winger. Good attacking intent. Pitch is not in mint condition with a few areas that ball won't roll normally.

Good match, great atmosphere a lot of fans from both clubs.

Busby Babes applauding the winners. In today's football, most of them would just cry and have bitterness towards the winner.

I just saw this entire match. I'd never seen Duncan Edwards play. Now I have. I thought he was excellent in this one. I'm longing to see more games of his but there aren't any out there, sadly.

And Shankly said: “Why? Is Matt Busby packing it in?”

The back pass isn't the only thing that has changed, with Wood almost unconscious on the ground they are ripping his jersey off him to get the game restarted. As far as the tackles go, only in a Jackie Chan movie will you see more flying feet and the Christmas Tree formation. Great video and well worth the 1:30 on a Sunday afternoon.


I can't believe it. I can't believe it. Football. Bloody hell.

I did love if football today could be more like that, why because today players are just little pussies that cannot handle it like grown men.
