Two awful results (Bristol Rovers and Blackpool) that I've only recently discovered. The only pre-season game I remembered was the Lincoln one, which I was at.

Re: Number of seasons in Premier League club by club

You could get sports bags with 'Burnley, 23 years in Division 1' until we were relegated in 1971. I think that was the wording but you get the general idea.

Re: Anyone remember this happening in the England v West Germany 1970 World Cup quarter-final?

Charlton was subbed at 2-1 which is even more mystifying as there were twenty minutes to go and surely Ramsey wouldn't think it was game over at that point. The ref was Argentinian, which might not have helped given Ramsey's remarks after the 1966 match.
