40 years ago,Nottingham Forest retained the European Cup..I had forgotten some of the issues of injury surrounding the game.
Clough & Taylor at their idiosyncratic best..What days.

The 1970s...Some great performances from English(& Scottish) Clubs in Europe.
In 1971/72 the new UEFA Cup was branded which replaced the Inter Cities Fairs Cup.
Wolves & Spurs reached the Final of the first tournament under that name.
The final was over 2 legs,with Spurs winning on aggregate.

Not a bad attempt by the fan..Lucky that Peter Lorimer was not booked for the kick on him 😁

Lucky it wasn't certain other Leeds players rather than Lorimer!

The ref's "drop ball" was more akin to a scrum half putting the ball into a scrum ! :)

The win put Carlisle at the top of the 1st Division(after 3 games)
Easy to forget Carlisle had a season in the top flight.
A few 25,000 crowds at Brunton Park that season.

Just checked & that was the 1st game of the season.They won the first 3 & were top of the table.
Average of 14,529 at Carlisle that season.
For a small club without the kudos of the other teams in the 1st Division they were not disgraced in the top flight & were only relegated with 2 games left.
They picked up 29 points(equivalent to 41 points on 3 for a win,though it was a 42 game season back then)

Their attendances were boosted by a fair number of Jocks coming south over the border in order to see the big English Clubs playing there.
