    I really enjoyed it. I never saw Romankov fence and, you're right, footage is relatively rare. But the West Germany trio of Weidner, Endres and Koch are all about my age and I saw plenty of them,...

    A very young West Germany team in that 1989 final. Koch and Endres were both juniors in 89 and Weidner only a year or two older. Seeing this video reminds me how physical their style was!
