Im not a fan of Manchester United, but you have to respect what Matt Busby did for the club

They've just shown bits of the 63 semi-final. 1st time I've seen any of that game and Terry Paine started pretty well

1963 was when Paine was at his peak. He was one of the best players in the world then.

Watch this:


Sadly I only saw him in the last three seasons of his career at the Dell, so between the ages of 33-35 but he was still a regular in the Saints team at a time when if you were still playing at 31-32 you were a rarity.

In his final season at the Dell 1973/74 he would miss only one league game, that being the final one at Everton when he allegedly fell out with Lawrie McMenemy .

It was great when he returned in 76/77 season aged 37 and still playing for Hereford as player coach and received a heroes welcome

It was unfortunate for him that he got injured against Mexico in the '66 World Cup Finals, Ramsey switched to his 4-3-3 'wingless wonders' formation and never used old style wingers again. But, Bates did, so we still saw Paine setting up the goals for the likes of Chivers, Channon and Davies.

He remained a very good player throughout the '60s but 1963 saw Paine at his absolute brilliant best.

In those days, England did a summer tour and I remember, as a boy, watching Terry Paine's first 2 games for England v Czechoslovakia and East Germany on black-and-white TV but that game when we beat the Rest of the World was the most thrilling. If we'd won that '63 semi-final v Man United, perhaps the final that year would still be remembered as the Paine Final like the '58 one was as the Matthews Final.

Paine assist for the Greaves winner v Hungary. Those two always combined brilliantly together.

Some excellent dribbling and beating of some of the best players in the world. What a different game it was then

Yes, dribbling was a big part of the game in the 60s. Channon was also brilliant at it. I think the pace of today's game makes it much more difficult to keep the ball at your feet and dribble past 2 or 3 defenders like they used to.

Watching that reminds how much tme and space players enjoyed on the ball compared with the game today. You cant' imsgine a player like Bobby Charlton in acres of space dribbling 40 yards unchallenged in a PL game these days.

Some great footage ther Dirk, thanks for sharing.

Remembering as a nipper the huge pride in watching Terry Paine in an England jersey pride on the same Wembley pitch as the likes of Puskas, Di Stephano, Eusebio and all the World's best players. Terry Paine of Division 2 Southampton.

Immense pride but even more of a privelege to watch him and John Sydenham terrorising opposition full backs every home game. Brilliant attacking Saints I remember fondly.

City legend, what's not to like about him? (Busby, that is).

Still stood in the Kippax
