Stunning line up, brought a lump I can tell you. King Albert on that left wing, what a player.

Greatly underrated OB... he was a joy to watch, and his crosses were pin point accurate to the heads of the big boys... John Charles, Jackie Charlton etc ... Such a sad ending to his life ...

Had the pleasure of watching Albert in his number 11 shirt bombing down the left wing :-D

John Charles, not exactly in his prime under Revie but still one of the greats

I’ll be the first to be a complete d:ck and make a tweak to the line up. Swap Madeley and Lorimer around. Pete goes back to his normal position and Paul could play CF easily.
Mind you, in heaven I guess everyone can play every where.
Great post YS.

Given my relatively young age these guys are all figures of myth and legend, one of my biggest regrets is not being around to see them at the time. Historical footage can only show you so much.

The Don only had one! And if I recall they could only be used to cover injury. What a different game from today.

Too many subs imo!

Coaches use subs as a time-wasting exercise to kill off a game. As a fan I dread the last ten minutes feeling cheated in so many games.
