Back in the days of power cuts and perms, the only way football fans could see the stars of the day on TV was through programmes like Saturday night’s Match of the Day and The Big Match on Sunday afternoon.
Manchester United were one of the must-see teams in the 1970s, even though it was a period of transition for the club with Matt Busby standing down as manager and the ‘holy trinity’ of George Best, Bobby Charlton and Denis Law in their twilight years. The Manchester United Big Match features a number of great games from the period, including a memorable 5-3 away win at Crystal Palace in 1971 and a Sammy McIlroy hat-trick inspired 5-0 thrashing of Wolves in 1981.
This DVD relives an era which has taken on legendary status.
