Same footage that was broadcast at half time during the Falkirk v Ayr match. The Bairns fans must have loved that. Tee hee 😂

"Back when football was fair and honest."

You obviously aren't old enough to remember the match fixing scandal in English football that "The People" newspaper exposed in April 1964.

Players jailed and careers ended.

And I was there...though if If I hadn’t already bought my ticket before the away leg I might not have. Still, always nice to see the goals for about the hundredth time.
The crowd was certainly well down from the Everton game, the seemingly insurmountable 4-0 deficit plus being cold enough to freeze your goodies off saw to that.

Even though the ground would have been alien to Valencia, it was still a terrific result and as the film said unmatched until Barcelona overcame a similar deficit to PSG.
Stein the master of raising good players to be great players.

Incorrect.

The Pars were not first in that respect, and QPR were overturned by Partizan Belgrade 30+ years before Barca beat PSG in similar scenario.

You should write to the film's producer and let them know.

Kilmarnock v Eintracht 1964: 3-0 down from the away leg, Killie lost another goal at home after a couple of minutes, but fought back to win 5-1.
They therefore overcame a 4 goal deficit, a most notable feat. Or 22 notable feet hah hah.
Worth a look on YouTube, Rugby Park fairly jumping!

The BBC said that Barca's achievement was the first time a 4 goal deficit had been overturned in the top ranking competition, which is correct.
