Tony Coton’s finest hour: the 0-0 in the FA Cup 6th round at Anfield in ‘86.
I don't think that was the approach ?
The individual skill levels are much higher now than back then where running and chasing the game was more effective at narrowing the gap in class.
GT would have picked a harder-working 11 and sat back and tried to break quickly. Gomes wouldn't have played ! The closing down would have been better. We'd have lost by 3 or 4 which is what should have happened this year had we scored that early chance or received the penalty or had Gracia not "gone for it" for the last 25 or so minutes and played 3 upfront.
What do facts have to do with this?
Yeah, up until the first goal and then at 5-0. Rest of the time - silence with the odd intermittent sound of someone throwing up a £7 hot dog mixed with Budweiser.
I took that bud/dog sick leftover home as a souvenir. Best souvenir in the world, so proud.
But we did lose 5-0 to Wimbledon...
