The Cup went to Atletico (Madrid). Contrary to their city rivals, the ‘Mattress makers’ were in their most successful period. Alas, only domestically – the general decline of Spanish football affected them as well.

Any recognizable name? Perhaps Irureta… perhaps Adelardo… perhaps Ufarte… chances are only Atletico fan can faintly recognize some players. Club legends, surely… and nothing more.
