1974 U21 tournament in Italy
 
I've just been wallowing in nostalgia re-reading Peter Gillatt's old article about the 1974 youth tournament win (The Forgotten Italian Job of 1974) on INOIT. The squad of 17 is listed, but I'd love to know which players played in the final- the dramatic comeback win over Napoli (3-1). For example, does anyone know if the youngest players (like future first-teamers Billy Ronson and Stan McEwan) got a game? Did we bring a sub on at half time (when we were losing one-nil) to turn the game around?

Old fart here margateseaside.

And for the record, these are the other Blackpool lads who rightly deserved credit for a such a magnificent performance. They were Colin King, John Curtis, Stan McEwan, Paul Hart, Steve Harrison, David Tong, Kevin Moore, Tony Evans, Stuart Parker, Mike Walsh, Alan Ainscow, Brian Wilson, Jimmy Weston, Stuart Betts, Micky Betts, Billy Ronson and Harry Johnson.

I've just been watching Tony Evans on YouTube, playing in the top tier for Brum in a see-saw game v Forest in 1981:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmhDUY4Xbrc

He was top scorer that season with 15. If he hadn't left us in '75 he might've got a regular place alongside Walsh when Dyson got hurt. Would he have got us promoted? Maybe if we'd also poached a few other youth prodigies from local rivals before they made the first team (Coppell from Tranmere, Peter Barnes from Man City, Lawrenson from PNE...). If I'm stuck at home I might as well dream...concentrating on players who went on to be regular first teamers (any team) I wonder how this youth team would've gelled in '74:

King
Curtis
Harrison
Hart
Lawrenson/McEwan
Coppell
Ronson/Ainscow
Tong
Barnes
Walsh
Evans

I know Lawrenson isn't our favourite these days, but if he'd played for us it might've made him a different person. The midfield would not have been very physically strong/powerful, but it would've been interesting to watch.
