The Old Days. We always think they were better …
Would you exchange the better standard of football we see every season at The Emirates for the mud and passion of Highbury?
Why do I long for a TA/Steve Bould tackle which would “let the player know you are there” as opposed to the Guardiola idea of staying on your feet?
Some of the intricacy of our current teams passing football is beyond ken but I yearn for a Radford bullet header from a hopeful punt from George Armstrong. Why is hoofball so looked down upon as a short-term tactic?
Why did the architects of The Emirates build the stands so far from the pitch? It makes the paying punter spectators as opposed to being fans involved in the play as we were at Highbury. Why can’t PL stadiums have a standing section?
Football has become sanitised (IMO). Is the sport better for it?
