Football matches are a traditional way to spend a Boxing Day afternoon. But on this day in 1963, pretty much every football fan who attended a match, saw something special. Take a look at these scores…
|Tottenham Hotspur||4||4||West Bromwich Albion|
|Nottingham Forest||3||3||Sheffield United|
|West Ham United||2||8||Blackburn Rovers|
|Wolverhamton Wanderers||3||3||Aston Villa|
66 goals with an average of over 6.5 per game. As someone said to me today at a game, “That was in the day when they used to drink on Christmas Day.” Maybe that explains the leaky defences.
