Nat Lofthouse, he admitted his barged goal shouldn't have been allowed!

In those days you could shoulder charge a 'keeper even if he had the ball, but Nat tried to head a loose ball which was caught by Gregg a split second before Nat got to it. As usual in these cases, the player isn't going to give up a goal, especially in the FA Cup Final, and it is down to the referee to allow or penalise. It all comes down to whether the referee thought the 'keeper was in control of the ball. Maybe he thought he wasn't, we'll never know. A bit harsh that that is all you can say about a footballer on a par with Stan Matthews on the day he dies. /:)
