These fans react to Man United’s Paul Pogba’s Euro 2020 form for France

This was the mid ’70s, when on the other coast New York City was exploding with creativity and ridiculously Good Times. Funnily enough, several people whom I would later in life come to know and in some cases collaborate with were smack dab in the thick of it all. Peter Wise is one of them.
