I remember one of my most recent feedbacks was about the famous 1956/57 European Cup match Manchester United 2-2 Real Madrid. If you please take a look at this earlier version of uefa.com
you can see that the stadium which was indicated was Maine Road. But I was sure that the game was played at Old Trafford. Therefore I let them know and the info was updated
Among the info I sent them which still need to be corrected, there is the Benfica's line-up over their 1960/61 European Cup match against Újpest in Hungary. If you please take a look at the uefa.com link
, you can see that they indicate Manuel Serra.
But I'm sure António Saraiva did appear for Benfica, as confirmed by four famous newspapers from those days: Diário de Lisboa, Népsport, A Bola and Record.
Another one: 1990/91 European Cup: Crvena Zvezda 3-0 Glasgow Rangers. Uefa.com states Milorad Ratković replaced Dragiša Binić at 78'
. But I'm sure Ratković didn't enter at all. I could consult all the most important British and Yugoslavian newspapers from those days, and Ratković was never mentioned. But the conclusive evidence is the video of the match
, which clearly shows that Binić was still in and missed a goal chance towards the end of the game.
I'm “specialized” above all in the European Cup/Champions League winning squads. This is the file
I created after years and years of researches and close examinations.
Haha, yes my favourite one of those is FIFA having "PR China" in the 1936 Olympics.
UEFA: probably the "brain" doesn't talk to the "body". Websites are
often outsourced, so the data on the web doesn't necessarily reflect
data in the filing cabinet.
Yeah! Another classic example was the flag of South Vietnam, that, if I well remember, was the one of North Vietnam...
One of the most evident technical errors on uefa.com is the fact
they consider Hertha Berlin as winners of the 2006 Intertoto Cup
that year the trophy was won by Newcastle United
