    Utilizing the information in Rothmans Football Yearbook 1972-73 (which covers the 1971-72 season) …

    [​IMG]

    … the following thread offers the squads of each team and the line-ups of every game played in the English First Division in 1971-72. Also included are the tables after each week of action as well as the top scorers chart. The tables are taken from Fussballdaten.

    The dates of birth in the squads section was taken from Barry Hugman’s Football League Player Records 1946-92. Rothmans did not have DOBs in their yearbook as the majority of clubs did not wish to see their player’s DOBs publicised at the time.
    If a player was an international, the number of full international games at the start of the season (August) is indicated. The year in which a player signed a contract is also indicated, as are his previous clubs.

    Example:

    Roberts, John Griffith (b. 11.09.1946), 4 A Wales, *1969, formerly Northampton Town, Swansea City
    Storey, Peter Edwin (b. 07.09.1945), 3 A, *1965, apprentice

    “4 A Wales” means that a player acted in four FIFA-recognised full international games for Wales.
    When there is no nationality given (see Peter Storey above), the default national team is England.

    The line-ups work as follows:

    Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City 1-1 (1-0)
    Saturday, 8 January 1972, White Hart Lane, attendance: 36,470
    Spurs: Jennings; R.Evans, Want, Coates, England, Beal, Neighbour, Perryman, M.Chivers, Peters (1), Gilzean (Pearce)
    MCFC: Corrigan; Book, Donachie, Doyle, Booth, Oakes, Summerbee, C.Bell, W.Davies (1), F.Lee, Towers


    Reads as:
    Home v Away Full Score (Half Time Score)
    Weekday, Date, Ground, attendance
    Home: 1 Goalkeeper – 2 Right Back, 3 Left Back, 4 Right Half, 5 Center Half, 6 Left Half, 7 Outside Right, 8 Inside Right, 9 Center Forward, 10 Inside Left, 11 Outside Left
    Away: Dito

    The above line-up follows the classic 2-3-5 formation. It does not necessarily mean that a player who wore the #11 shirt actually played on the left wing. A famous example is Graeme Souness, who wore #11 during his Liverpool days. Or Ray Kennedy, who wore #5 but of course was not a center half. But by and large, the numbering in the 1970s and 1980s still somewhat mirrored where on the pitch a player was to be found predominantly.

    If this traditional numbering is transferred into the actual tactical formation, one can in most cases assume the following:

    2 - Right Back
    3 - Left Back
    4 - Defensive or right-sided midfielder (sometimes center back)
    5 - Center Back
    6 - Center Back (sometimes defensive midfielder)
    7 - Right-sided midfielder or right wing
    8 - Central midfielder, forward, striker
    9 - Center Forward, targetman, forward, striker
    10 - Attacking midfielder, forward, striker
    11 - Left-sided midfielder or left wing

    Goalscorers can be identified as follows:

    If a player scored a goal, it is noted like this: Ritchie (1), if he scored two goals: Ritchie (2) and so on.

    If a player scored one goal from a penalty, it is noted like this: Viljoen (1’).

    If a player scored two goals, one from open play and one from a penalty, it is noted like this: Burrows (2’).

    If a player scored three goals, one from open play and two from penalties, it is noted like this: Royle (3’’).

    If a player scored four goals, one from open play and three from penalties, it is noted like this: Woodward (4’’’).

    Tables read as follows:

    06 31-19 45:35 25 12 07 06 1.29 Wolverhampton Wanderers
    Rank /Points For-Points Against /Goals For:Goals Against /Games Played /Wins /Draws /Losses /Goal Average

    Thanks Roy!

    To me it is interesting to see how much managers seemed to care to have the shirt number of a player correspond to the position he was intended to play on the pitch. Take some superstar players like George Best - one would like to think that a player of his stature would have a fixed shirt number, but it wasn't like that. Best wore all offensive numbers (7, 8, 10, 11) except Bobby Charlton's no. 9. There are many other examples.

    Managers could have chosen the easy way not to worry about shirt numbers at all, just have players stick to certain numbers regardless of changing roles on the pitch (like it is done today).

    It's interesting to see that managers worried about something like "correct" shirt numbers, something which actually had no influence on the outcome of a game - or, could have been used to confuse the opposition actually if ignored.

    [Once again, you are quite welcome, mate.]



    [Sir Bobby Charlton wearing the No.9 on the back of his shirt was because he lined-up as a so-called "deep-lying centre-forward". Another near-forgotten name for the position was the "Revie role". This lead to the odd convention of the principal "AM" in a "penguin" formation or the dead-centre midfielder in a three-man line wearing the No.9 on the back of his shirt in this era of football history.]

    Bobby Charlton could have worn the #8 or #10 shirt just as well as the #9. I think perhaps he saw himself a bit in the ADS tradition by wearing the #9 shirt?

    I am currently working on the 1972-73 and in that season, Bobby Charlton is actually also wearing the #11 shirt in a few games.

    What amazes me about 1971-72 is the number of penalties Francis Lee scored - 13!

    Also notable is the almost perfect start to the season of newcomers Sheffield United (13-01 points in the first 7 games).

    Then Manchester United took over after week 12 (9 October 1971) and remained at the top until week 25 (8 January 1972). It was the last hooray of that vintage United side of the 1960s with players like Bobby Charlton, George Best, Tony Dunne, Brian Kidd and Denis Law. It was all downhill for them after that. But already some newcomers were appearing like Martin Buchan and Sammy McIlroy who would later become key players at United in the late-1970s.

    Leeds again ending up runners-up. Over the years, Leeds looked like the best team, always up there, but almost never at the top on the last day, while the eventual winners in each season were one-hit wonder kind of teams (Everton in 1970, Arsenal 1971, Derby 1972), looking average the year after their championships, while Leeds was still up there.

    Thanks comme, I am enjoying it very much. Right now I have already finished the first 30 weeks of the 1972-73 season. Call me obsessed. :D

    (I have developed a system which is very time-saving yet accurate in the results.)

    It was during this season his reputation for diving really took off. He gained the nickname "Lee One Pen" (due to the way scorers were read), but many journalists changed this to "Lee Won Pen".

    I just wonder, as Lee had a certain reputation back then, one would think that referees would try to avoid giving penalties to Lee? Already in the previous seasons he scored a good amount of penalties (and he continued to do so in later years, yet not as excessive as in 1971-72), so refs must have been aware of his habit already during the 1971-72 season. English refs being generally less prone to falling for dives must also be considered. In these circumstances, Lee scoring 13 penalties is astounding (of course not all of them came after a foul on himself, they also had Colin Bell, Mike Summerbee and Rodney Marsh up front).

    The other interesting fact about all of Frannie Lee's PKs is that he was famous for never going to one side or the other. He'd count on the keepers going one way or the other and he'd just knock it down the middle. I remember reading an article about him in an old magazine called Shoot/Goal about his tendencies, and a couple of weeks later saw him, he was then playing for Derby vs Ipswich, take a PK and put it straight down the middle.

    What we have to remember was that scouting was rudimentary in those days. Even to the absence of reading kids' soccer magazines. One famous story re: player numbers involved an England game featuring a striker named Mike Channon. The England manager, I think it was Don Revie, in a game against a European minnow (who wouldn't have had the money to do much scouting in person) gave Channon the #3 jersey in an attempt to fool the opposition. I don't remember the outcome, but I seem to recall that the press thought it a bloody good tactical move...

    Like Neeskens?

    Numbering did play an important part those days. One could confuse the opponent by handing out numbers contrary to the position a player had. There's a 1979 Bundesliga match for instance when Bielefeld played at Bayern Munich and won something like 4-0. Bielefeld's center forward wore the #4 shirt and was left unmarked by Bayern's stopper Augenthaler during the first 23 minutes.

    Here's the report on that game
