Keepers rolling the ball with their feet to the penalty spot then picking it up, bouncing it 3  or 4 times then kicking it from their hands up the pitch.  Think John Lukic, Bruce Grobelaar. Packie, Neville Southall. 

Keepers bringing a small kitbag and a towel into their goal

Players making awkward run ups when taking corner kicks because there was no noom. Having to start off from the gravel then jump up onto the pitch. Nowadays they have those carpets around the pitch at pitch level.

Shots nestling in the back of the net so the keeper has to lift up the net to retrieve the ball.

Pilon floodlights. You never see a player with 4 shadows anymore.

Stanchioning. Box netting in every stadium now.

What was in the kitbag??   Was it just a bottle of water?

I miss the old jerseys that blew in the wind. They super tight ones are rubbish and even more so for the fans.

Not sure what was in it tbhLOL
Maybe spare gloves?  Was a small washbag size thing. Usually had the glove manufacturer on it like Uhlsport or Sondico etc..

Players with ridiculously long laces having to wrap it around the underside of the boot ot around the ankles to get rid of extra slack.  You see    this  with     players like      BURRUCHAGA      1986

The Argentinian sub goalie who ended up playing most of their game during Italia 90 used to do this. Had the tongue of the Copa's tied around the lower part of the shinguard too.

Depends on the keeper. Joe Harte had shampoo while others kept a few packs of Wrigleys Extra. Rene Higuita had a bag full of the white stuff.

Pumpido got injured in the 2nd game against CCCP.  I dont know if they had a 3rd keeper if EL    GOYCO    got injured

EDIT: He broke his leg 2nd game not 1st game.

LOL 

Karius is fulfilling the void quite well at Besiktas, it's almost a weekly thing now for him. 

If there's ever a Wall built in the UK, it wouldn't be Brexit, it'd be the scousers putting one up so he can't come back to Liverpool once the loan ends.
