A bit of a departure for the blog, but here is a classic game of football (or, at least, the five goals scored within the game). As you all know I'm a City fan for my sins & this is a classic line up. Within a five year period (1965-70) City won the 2nd Division , 1st division, FA Cup, Charity Shield & Cup Winners Cup. Plus we always seemed to stuff the twats from Old Trafford (a football ground near Manchester). This was all done with a basic nucleus of homegrown players, eg. The Cup Winners Cup Final Squad involved 11 English men plus a Scotsman (Arthur Mann RIP). Nationality is not important - look at how City & Spurs play on this clip - team players to a man despite the number of Internationals out there - Jennings, Mullery, Greaves, Lee, Bell, Summerbee etc. Plus can you see the serial cheating puffs today playing on a frozen ground like that with snow continuing to fall....?? Not a fuckin chance. I am not slagging foreign players but when will City ever win a trophy again with 11 Englishmen ? Or Celtic do it (like 1967) with eleven Scots players ? NEVER.
We've all heard of Bell, Lee, Summerbee etc but this is dedicated to Neil Young (watch his cannonball left foot shots on here, PLUS he won us the '69 FA Cup) - a true blue & top feller.
