That was the in joke when video recorders became popular in the 1980’s, you could see if Geoff Hursts goal was over the line. Hwas in the telly last night, he said it was in so that’s good enough for meA dud goal in 1966, ok they were robbed by the hand of god in Mexico but their performance in big games is terrible.
I was watching at 1 - 0 and as the half went on it was clear the Italians were building, the English wanted the game to end then.
Your comment about the Italians building is correct, that’s why we needed a Grealish on the pitch. He’s extremely difficult to knock off the ball, instead we booted it upfield, let the Italians have it back so they could build yet another attack. So obvious to me yet the manager couldn’t see it ffs.
It’s so long since we won our only trophy that Hurst is one of only 4 of the 11 still alive
