i remember driving down the A500 – and being the next car behind the funeral hurst – it felt sad, strange and an honour all at the same time
RIP from England
great days..when the players KNEW their fans
the one at 0:09 would probably be a red card nowadays. at least if the player in possession was from united and the referee was howard webb.
@bennyharrisuk But that era doesn’t exist anymore,think of the poverty then as opposed to now,it’s just a different world now and football reflects that.Wish they’d cut the prices nowadays mind.
what a goal by Stanley Matthews
@tine214: Too true, plus Stan could get past nearly any marker w/the ball at his feet IMHO.
Amazing stuff. He gets taken out “cold blooded” & gets up to score the winner…..@ age 48!
..OVER PAID CELEBRITIES…WHO ONLY PLAY HALF A SEASON..AND WOULDNT HOLD A CONVERSATION WITH THE FANS…STAN DID
NOTHING FANCY…THATS HOW IT WAS…AND A HEAVY BALL TOO…NO BIG WAGES…JUST THE LOVE OF THE GAME
Best English player of all time.. and imo behind only Pele in terms of greatness.
With pitches like that and leather balls that weighed a ton when wet, only players of that era like Stanley Mathews who had the skills could control the ball. Today’s players would be writhing in agony as the ball would be too heavy for them.
he was great player but messi is realy good and have 22, you must wait, and messi is followed by 4 players in finals stanley only for one, was another time, anyway great players can play in everytime.
This field is a disgrace!! its no wonder the english style of playing is to boot the ball in the air….I would too with these conditions. To think a wizard like Sir Stanley had to play on those type of pitches which are a great disservice to the man.
haha the pitch is a discrace
Thats our Sir Stan xx
“Old” Stan still weaving his magic. Played until he was fifty years of age!
That pitch is a swamp. I’m amazed by the fact Matthews could still show his skill on it.
pitch looks like anfield
Matthews > Messi by far!
The Argie only runs and shoots. He lacks the vision and passing ability of one Sir Stanley Matthews!
Stanley Matthews as Amedeo Biavati…simply…champions!!!…football history…
The greatest among the greatest in a time that football was football
Yeah, the real winger’s winger, fantastic acceleration, great w/the ball at his feet, and SUCH vision. I love it when people who never saw him play spout shite like Sir Stan wouldn’t make the cut in the modern EPL. Stan would run RIOT in the modern games, just watch some of his vids.
he was recalled to the englan squad at 44 yrs old and scored 4 goals in an international
