Because football is much more family friendly and safe. And our game has an enormous multi-media (and global) presence. However, on the pitch if you think this Blackburn Rovers side is a patch on

I can't think of a Don Mackay side that wouldn't spank any we've had in the championship since 2012. Even the struggling one that prompted Jack to get involved would draw at least with this one.

Bloody brilliant football!

That team would tear our current lot apart. 

The pace they moved at would have us in complete disarray. How is it that, in today's game where fitness is such a priority, that the players can't match the standards of players that probably had a pre match pint. 

Tony you should be ashamed!!

It's striking how faster the movement is TS,even the legend with his penchant for a Pint and a Hamlet was no slouch.

Happy days those.

 

It was a more linear game in those days, now it's more lateral. I've said before we ought to put the goals at the side of the pitch these days.  In that era when you got the ball in midfield you'd 4 players at least in front of you to pass to, now you've got 1. Having real wingers playing out wide made the pitch bigger when you had the ball. When they get the ball now the first thing they do is come inside or give back it to the full back. That just condenses the play.

Mowbray's teams take the ball stood still all the time. The team in that video were taking the ball on the run. That makes a massive difference.
