The moment King Eric nearly became an owl

Some things we love about this video:
1. The fact that a top-flight English club seems to be training in a school sports hall.
2. Reminiscing about a time when a squad containing a Swede and an American was cosmopolitan.
3. Thinking about Trevor Francis singing along at a Simply Red concert.
4. The very pro-Eric stance of the reporter. For instance, calling the reports about his temper “imaginative”. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
5. “Eric was politeness itself.”

    Funny how the past so quickly looks ridiculous.
