Flashback to 1991/92 - Preston 1 South Melbourne 2

Seeing as South actually gets to travel with fans to BT Connor in a couple of weeks for the first time in many years, and as per requests to review classic games and players from days gone by, I thought it'd be good to upload something specifically for that occasion. The clip below is from season 1991/92. South were reigning champions with a great squad, Preston were pretty much on their last legs NSL wise after their 1980s heyday, and they were only to last another season after that before dropping into the VPL. There's a good crowd, a lot of fierce attacking play, one time Socceroo Andrew Zinni running amok, superb goalkeeping by McLaren, Trimmers flattening an opponent, a bushfire in the nearby scrub, hypnotic scenes of waves of people jumping up and down, and Kyle Patterson narrating the highlights. Enjoy.

While I like people commenting on the blog, it would be useful if different posters could at least leave some sort of nickname to make it easier to sort through all the different 'anonymous' posters. If your post doesn't get approved straight away, it's probably because I haven't seen it yet. Lastly, just because I approve a comment for publication does not mean that I endorse its content.
