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.


Sergio      GOYCOCHEA     EL    GOYCO
Italia 90 was probably my first football memory, and this was one of the nmes that stuck in my head. Never realised he was a backup


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.


Pumpido nearly lost a finger a year before that 1990 WC. He jumped up to save a shot and his wedding ring got caught on a nail on the crossbar. Ouch.

Cars parked behind the goals (Stamford Bridge).

Short shorts.

Socks rolled down around the ankles.

If you use 1934 as a barometer then yes, you may have some sort of point.
That was the year that the attendance record for an English club ground was set, when 84,569 people attended Manchester City vs Stoke. Not bad for a club with no fans or history.
 
I imagine that you weren't around then, and didn't get into football until the 1990s. If so, then the average Man City home league attendance in 1994 was 22,725
Despite being relegated to what used to be known as Division One, the average attendance a few years later was actually higher, at 26,753, and in 1998/99, it was a remarkable 28,261 despite playing in Division Two
 
Those figures are almost half of the average attendance these days in the Etihad Stadium however, which was most recently 54,130. Again, not bad for a team with no fans

Yeah I kinda like the idea that City averaged 28k in League 1, and hasn't completely ballooned to silly figures. They've a fairly large core fanbase, which outnumbers the new fans and daytrippers.

Exactly. From working at a bar in Manchester I used to enjoy city fans coming in.  They were knowledgeable to chat to and didn't seem to take current success for granted.  Used to dread working for United matches.  Pub be full of peaky blinders wannabe scrotes from dublin who couldn't handle their drink and scandinavians who were as much craic as a funeral or had no interest in football and were just there to see zlatan

You never see a keeper making a diving catch with both hands anymore.  Used to be all the rage in the 80's like white dog sh*te.
So you've decided to read this eh?

Rare enough to see long sleeve jerseys. Usually just a short sleeve shirt and base layer underneath.

YArmolenko at WH a great exponent of this at the moment

Players signing a new contract on a table on the pitch before a game  with the manager and chairman sitting beside them.

I remember there being a time when you couldn’t get long sleeve replica jerseys.

Allegri smokes, doesn’t he? 

As I’m here, you never hear any pundit say anything interesting, entertaining or even mildly worthwhile.

Did we ever get much of that though? I always thought the realm of football punditry was the preserve of inane sound bites and clichés. Certainly in the UK at least.

Yeah, but at least there was only one of them! Now you have a squad of fifty of them saying even less! They used to have personalities too, many of them bad, but it was something!

This is true. There's no doubt they have become more vacuous over the years, I just don't really recall a 'golden age' as such of football punditry. Or if there was it was before my time!

There probably wasn’t, although Clough was a pundit for a while, but it seems to be regressing. When BT started off they had some decent writers on their Sunday night European show, that was a step in the right direction.

I guess as the game has become boring at the highest levels the discussion around it is hardly going to evolve!

Rolls of receipts been thrown on the pitch. 

Players running across goalkeepers during their kick outs, trying to put them off. 

The number boards. (not the digital kind) for changing subs. 

Big tongues covering the laces on football boots used to be all the rage (puma king)

Mucky footballers. Pitches are too 'grassy' these days LOL
