1972 League Cup Final, Chelsea v Stoke: Video Flashback

If you want to see how much soccer has changed and what a cup final was like in 1972, this classic video showing the first ten minutes of footage from the 1972 League Cup Final is a must-see.

The video looks like it’s straight out of The Damned United with the tracksuit jackets and how dated everything looks including the shaggy haircuts.

The result of the game was a massive upset with Stoke City winning 2-1 (imagine if that happened nowadays). The winning goal was scored by George Eastham.
