Re: Anyone fancy watching Spurs v Burnley 1960/61 with huge writing obscuring the picture and our last 3 goals missing?

There was some comment recently about how yesterday's footballers weren't as good/fit as todays counterparts. It would be interesting to see if today's lot could play on such a muddy surface, with that old ball that soaked up water so could weigh a ton, for 90 minutes (no subs) and with the quality ...
