Given I was young in the 80's it provided even more detail on how that great side come together and the changes in fortunes was great dramatic and in a relatively short space of time. It gives hope that we may not need huge transformational change to have another change in fortunes.
Other things that stuck with me was the side was full of characters, some very different characters, but they were not only talented and professional (as professional as you could be in those days) but they all had a desire to be winners.Without that you dont stand a chance and although the games has changed astronmically since the 80's, this still applies today.
The most frustrating part was reflecting on the European ban in the 80's. Although hooliganism was not isolated to Heysel and there was clearly a wider issue in football, not only in England, it's difficult to feel anything other than agdreived that we missed out on the opportunity to earn the title of best team in Europe and in doing so, laid the foundations for a successful future as we headed into the Premier League era. I know this is old ground but its not hard to think 'if only'. Did we or any other side ever try and appeal this decision or was it a case of the decision made and accepted?
