English Leagues the 60s: Chelsea Manchester United Division One 1968 1969

Match of The Day
Stamford Bridge,
Saturday 15 March 1969

 The arrival of Dave Sexton as Chelsea's manager did nothing to dull the artistry of a side that painted on a broad canvas. In the next two years, they joined the privileged English masters in the European winners' academy.
The style and free spirit of their football was matched by that of the European champions Manchester United when a crowd of 60 000 saw
the teams walk out side by side in front of BBC cameras. Bobby Charlton was injured, but George Best was there, so was Denis Law, and Peter Osgood was back for Chelsea. The match was a thriller.
David Webb put Chelsea ahead in the first minute, Ian Hutchinson made it 2—0, then Steve James pulled one back for United.
In the second half, Bobby Tambling ran half the length of the pitch for Chelsea's third, and Law scored from a penalty.
But there was still time for humour in the game of the 60s.
The cameras caught referee George McCabe calming dowr an incensed Nobby Stiles by ruffling his hair.
