    A Game of Two Eras: Time Shift

    1957 vs 2007

    This Time Shift special uses the latest football technology to conduct a unique experiment into how English football has really changed in the past 50 years.

    Through computerised analysis it directly compares every aspect of the FA Cup Finals of 2007 and 1957, the year of the dramatic and controversial Wembley encounter between Manchester United and Aston Villa, when the United goalkeeper played on with a broken cheekbone.

    How did the players pass the ball, how skilful were they and how hard did they tackle? The results uncover a lost era of English football through interviews with the surviving members of the 1957 final and contributors including Sir Tom Finney and former England manager Graham Taylor.


    Fantastic programme I thought, especially the way it was made. I can't believe how much the game has changed.

    yeh watched it last night and thought it was very interesting , thought the final score of the 57 game even more interesting, overall the game has moved on so much but its not all for the better, too many prima donna`s now.
