March 1958: (left to right) Fulham’s Johnny Haynes, Jimmy Hill and Roy Bentley on board a train from Euston Station to Birmingham for Fulham’s FA Cup semi final against Man Utd, held at Villa Park. The game ended 2-2, with United winning the replay 5-3 at Highbury.

No amount of facial hair can conceal the ridiculous size of Hill’s chin. If anything, it draws attention to it. Still, what a fine head of hair.

True fact: Bentley was 33 when this pic was taken. That’s not a typo. Sweet baby Jesus, he looks about 50!
