    I remember the double team - so many great players.

    Of course, in those days we wasn't bombarded with football every day on the telly, so when you went to a match you couldn't believe how players could be so good, especially with the boots and the laced ball.

    Today, a player can stand still and still ping the ball 50 yards, they wouldn't have done that in the late fifties.

    Mind you, I'll concede they are much fitter today, have to be to keep up with the pace. Alan Gilzean used to take the field half pissed most matches.
