Video of the Day: Cambridge United vs Exeter City, April 1978

We’re taking a detour to the lower divisions for this morning’s video of the day, to The Abbey Stadium for a Third Division match between Cambridge United and Exeter City. Cambridge had been elected into the Football League in 1970 in place of Bradford Park Avenue, winning promotion to the Third Division in 1974 before being relegated straight back from whence they came. In 1977, however, the team was promoted again, this time as champions under the management of one Ron Atkinson. Atkinson left the club in January 1978 to manage West Bromwich Albion in the First Division, but...

91 Years Of Football Through 7 Players: From Leeds United, 1920 to West Ham, 2011

An article on the front page of the When Saturday Comes website bemoaned the airbrushing from history of anything from before the beginning of the Premier League, but the time-line of football is considerably more textured than this. With this is mind (and from a post on the WSC forum, which is probably the best place on the internet to discuss football), here is a rambling six degrees of speculation. From Leeds United’s first season in the Football League to West Ham United vs Blackpool in the Premier League on the 2nd February 2011 in seven players. Feel free to have a go at this in the comments and knock mine into a proverbial cocked hat. Centre-half Ernie Hart joined Leeds United in September 1920, a year after they were formed. He was a regular in that team – he left Leeds in 1936 – alongside… …Jack Milburn (cousin of Jackie), who signed for Leeds in November 1928. Jack was in the Leeds team until the outbreak of war in 1939, and in January 1938 Leeds signed the sixteen year-old winger… …David Cochrane, who went straight into the first team and became a regular himself. David’s career was interrupted by the war, but he re-signed for Leeds after it and, in April 1949, he played alongside… …John Charles, who played for Leeds for nine years, before going to Juventus...
