    Hi As a sixteen year old Blues fan I was in the Tilton Road End that evening. My abiding memory is that despite the poor playing surface Barcelona were so intent at playing their usual clever close ball style. Occasionally they whacked the ball but the difference in technique between the teams was stark.
    We(Blues) were a decent team in the Fairs Cup Competition and held our own away to teams such as the two Milan teams and others. The superb footage I have just seen(no idea there were fifteen minutes available) 53 years later has simply reinforced my original memory. Well done Pathe.
