 Athletico Madrid
Topic Originator: Paralex  
Date:   Wed 3 Nov 22:06

I remember being at the most infamous european game ever played in Scotland, Celtic v Athletico Madrid. They took dirty tricks to a new level. Seeing them against Liverpool tonight brings back memories of that game. Cheating by any possible means seems to be a permanent feature of that club. And Louis Suarez fits into their ethos perfectly.

Karma in the final - Atletico were 1-0 in the final minute when Bayern`s defender Schwarzenbeck equalised with a long range effort.

Bayern won the replay 4-0.

Maybe my recollection is wrong VEE but somehow I have a picture of them being beaten by Aston Villa in the final, Andy Gray playing a big part.

But if they were beaten in two finals that`s even better.

Villa beat Bayern in the 1981 final and by that time Gray had already left Villa to join Wolves.

We all hate poverty, war, and injustice.
Unlike the rest of you squares.

I have a very clear picture in my mind of Jimmy Johnstone on the day after the Celtic vs Athletico Madrid game. He had his shirt off to reveal a torso that was covered in bruises. They kicked him throughout the game and I think most people were happy when Bayern did them in the final. This was the first of Bayern’s 3 in a row - Leeds in ‘75 and St Etienne at Hampden in ‘76.

Yes my memory about Aston Villa is clearly wrong.

I`ve just had a look at the "highlights" of the Celtic/Athletico game in 1974. Celtic were kicked off the park. I was in the "jungle" near the front but watching the replays now is even worse than I remember. They were having wild swipes at the Celtic players legs. The ref.eventually gave one yellow card when 5 or 6 of them should have been sent off. When you see the likes of Suarez rolling about feigning injury and see what Jimmy Johnstone put up with in that game I have to admit it gave me some backdated pleasure to see Liverpool give them a comprehensive doing last night.

The 1974 EC final, first game - don`t blink or you`ll miss the last gasp equaliser !!!

The Atletico keeper was Miguel Reina who also played for Barcelona and Spain, his son Pepe was also an internationalist, and at Barca - also played for Liverpool.

Better here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2t8qVFacJNs

Incidentally, Tommy Callaghan played for Celtic in that notorious match at Parkhead when Jimmy Johnstone was battered to bits.

One of the Atletico players, Ruben Diaz, had played for Racing Club in the even more infamous 1967 "Battle of Montevideo" - the first to be booked in Glasgow, after 7 minutes, for clattering Jinky.

Thanks VEE, I enjoyed that. Poetic justice.

I find it abhorrent that adults who`ve probably watched football for decades still refer to Atletico as "Athletico"

As abhorrent as inflicting grievous bodily harm on fellow players? Hmm nice try, you can put your fishing tackle way now.

If I'm correct were most of the Spanish team not from South America. At that time most of them were know to be hackers.

Athletico were all Spanish nationals, except one player and the manager.

Way worse than kicking a few erses up and down a park.Even more abhorrent is the half wits that know it`s wrong but still say and write it anyway.They think they`re real football fans but it`s clear to see they haven`t got a clue

I remember the picture you’re talking about Parfection, it was in the Daily Record I think. Jinky was only wearing a pair of shorts, his legs and torso were a mass of bruises. Utterly brutal behaviour.
