An explanation of Football in 1922/23

All teams used the same formation:



2 3

Right Full Back;  Left Full Back

4 5 6

Right Half Back; Centre Half; Left Half Back

7  8  9  10  11

Outside Right; Inside Right; Centre Forward; Inside Left; Outside Left

This more or less continued until 1953 when Puscas and the Hungarians came.

There were no substitutes, floodlights and the offside rule was different too – there had to be 2 defenders and the goalie between the player and the goal line when the ball was passed to him !
