Phil Ball in Spain

It was a strange sensation, almost akin to nostalgia, when the Athletic Bilbao and Anderlecht fans fought a pitched battle on the hallowed San Mames turf last Thursday, after the Europa League first-leg tie. I don't mean by nostalgia that I miss that sort of thing, but that it was a nod to a bygone age, one that I remember as a youth and as a young(er) man, and one that seemed as much a part of football as the games themselves.
