061 – 1949 Flamengo

A couple of magazine articles from 1949 today. Firstly a piece by Laurie Scott in Tit-Bits (dtd 01/04/1949) and then some on our tour match v Flamengo in Brazil (from Sports 10/06/1949 and Sports Reporter (18/07/1949) which was marred by fighting. As usual the English press got all high and mighty about foreign football, but possibly with some cause this time!

    Oh, wow! Laurie Scott was my uncle. I have a lot of his stuff, but I’ve never seen the Tit Bits piece before. The cartoon is priceless! Thank you for posting this.
