I always remember an interview with Bill Shankly and his number two Bob Paisley. They insisted on playing “their way” and letting the opposition worry about them. In this day and age it’s far too much analysis of the opposition and about stopping them scoring. The football was far more exciting in the 70s, 80s, 90s; now it’s gone far too analytical that it’s more boring than accountancy. Me and HORC can remember coming off games in the Paul Jewell era and feeling exhausted, as if we’d actually been on the pitch for 90 mins. Now, we rarely leap out of our seats, unless we need the Gents !
Real football is dead ! Football has been ruined by Sky, greed, VAR, etc.
