The last breathless moments of the 1954 World Cup Final. With only a couple of minutes left Puskas falls to the ground as he scores what he thinks is the equalising goal. However elation turns to dismay as the goal is ruled offside and Germany go on to win 3-2.

During the seventies a number of clubs adopted a ‘bubble-look’ design for their matchday programmes. We’ve got Walsall, West Bromwich Albion, Leicester City, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Birmingham City and Torquay United. Click each image to get a full-size view.

Each of the clubs used the one design  for numerous issues with the exception of Wolves who produced a different design for each game of their 72/73 campaign. Check ‘em out here - surely one of the best season sets of programmes ever issued by any football club.

There’s also this beauty - the handbook for the 1973 Anglo-Italian Cup
