Match Of The 70s, 1972-73: Friday Flashback Videos

In this week’s installment of the Friday Flashback Videos, we take the time machine back to the 1972-73 season in the old First Division of England.

If you haven’t seen this before, it’s definitely a must-see series of videos. In them, you’ll see some of the legends of the game including Brian Clough, Don Revie, Bill Shankly, Charlie George, Martin Peters, Gordon Banks, Bob Stokoe, George Best, Tommy Docherty and many others.

Plus you can see some interesting video of The Kop in full voice, St. James’s Park under construction (and how different it looked then to now) and last but not least the recently departed Norman Wisdom, a comedic genius.

Feel free to share any observations or questions in the comments section below.
