Black bands on the bottom of goalposts like Nou Camp or 1978 WC.

Player managers

Outfield players having to go in goals after the keeper got injured.

In fairness the last one is a lot more regular. It’s happened twice this decade at West Ham. Both Henri Lansbury and Carl Jenkinson have clean sheets to their name.

With 7 substitues these days, there's no excuse for not listing a Sub GK in your matchday squad.

As I’m here, you never hear any pundit say anything interesting, entertaining or even mildly worthwhile.
 
On the sideline? Isn't it illegal to smoke in a football ground in the UK?

Players with tape over their rings

Small stripes like Aston Villa pitch 1992

Different brands of footballs depending on the ground.  Old Trafford had Umbro, Anfield adidas, Blackburn Mitre.

Small fishnet type nets with the small holes.

Mucky pitches and goalmouths

Clubcall for the latest team news

Keepers kicking the posts to clean their studs

Inflatable bananas

The Vidiprinter on BBC

The Pools results

VeryLOL

You never see players having to tuck their shirt into their shorts anymore. Think it used to be mandatory.

As for inflatables, a Grimsby fan was found guilty of assaulting a steward at Barnet with an inflatable shark a few seasons back!

Different stadiums.  All the same symmetrical bowls now. No individuality or quirks.

Games in Eastern Europe being held in intimidating communist stadiums with commentary over a bad phone line.  Getting a win felt like going to Moscow, breaking into the KGB headquarters for top secret info and getting out of there with your life intact.

Wasn't there this time around, but really like the Dinamo stadium in Tbilisi for old school feel. 

Plenty of old school stadia about. The problem is you dont really see them, because the national teams and the big domestic clubs who are in Europe normally have (or play in for Europe) soulless bowl arenas. 

Went to Rapid Wien's stadium before it closed down and got replaced by a standard Lego stadium. Cracking old ground

Watching matches towards the end of the season and large portions of the pitch, particularly around both penalty areas and the centre circle, being more or less completely grass-free, with large quantities of sand liberally dumped in those areas.

Masking tape being used in lieu of a proper captain's armband. Or was that only ever the EIRE team?

People having a bit of a soft spot for Man City and their long-suffering supporters.

English football teams being owned, not by a Saudi 'prince', American 'sports  group', Russian oligarch, east-Asian Kleptocrat or brutal Gulf state dictatorship, but rather a local businessman; probably the owner of the region's bathroom showrooms or furniture warehouses, who arrives at games in a chauffer-driven Jag rather than a helicopter landing on the pitch, and whose level of wealth, and evil, is of an altogether more modest nature.

Old-fashioned advertising hoardings that aren't of the garish electronic kind promoting a Korean lager or Qatari airline but are instead plywood and making people aware of an obscure local tyre fitters or butchers shop.

LOL

I watch a lot of those football years on sky.  You always had 'Harcros Timber Merchants'  and 'Ascot Sports' and 'British Steel' advertising in most grounds.

Going back to the 1980's you had a lot of those alphabets on the sidelines.  Someone said they were for announcing the half time scores.  Not sure how that worked!
