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.
The 1970s and early 1980s were a fairy tale for Aston Villa, who began the period in Division Three but then won two promotions, the League title, two League Cups and the European Cup. The Aston Villa Big Match features a number of great games from the time, including a 2-1 second City victory over Birmingham in 1975 and a memorable 4-2 away win at Leicester City in 1981 on their way to lifting the League title for the first time in over 70 years.
