I want to start with the last line of the synopsis: "Matches featured with extended highlights include Manchester Utd 2-1 Liverpool 17/04/85 Manchester Utd 3-1 Liverpool 01/01/89 And many more". How many more? Well, if you look at the menus, it's two more, one from 1981, and one from 1999. On watching the DVD, you'll also see one from March 1980, so it's five. Therefore, the word 'many' apparently equates to three. But that's just the tip of the ice-berg - the whole set-up of this DVD is bizarre, it's a really unprofessional product.

I bought a video in 1991 called Manchester United's greatest victories over Liverpool, which contained highlights of games from '68, '69, '77, '80, '81, '83, '85, '89 and 1990. It had muzak, graphics and was narrated by the late great Brian Moore. It was a professional piece. I expected this to take the best of those and add some crackers from the next 20 years. It is, after all, build as a collector's set. Instead, the absolute bare minimum here. Little more than half the games for a start, just five, and arguably only two of these have any historical significance at all. They're not even in chronological order, starting with an FA Cup game in 1985, then going back to 1981.

The whole thing has a feel of an ESPN Classic package that you catch when you're bored. There's nothing wrong with that for TV, but when I buy a DVD, especially one bearing the names of 'Manchester United' and 'ITV Sport' - both of which have a pedigree in producing DVD's - I have a different expectation. I expect someone to come up with a fully-rounded product. This really is nothing like that. It's amateur. It's worse than your average YouTube compilation. It's as poor as Gary Bailey's goalkeeping.

My advice is to see if you can get another look at the original video from 1991. For all the advances in media over the last 20 years, the old video is miles ahead of this.

This DVD contains a poorly-assembled selection of matches from the '80s, and one from the '90s, that purport to show some of Manchester United's greatest victories over arch-rivals Liverpool. Actually, it appears to contain whatever footage was available from the archives of The Big Match, or what ever followed it, following that program's demise. The packaging is totally misleading, too, with pictures on the back of the DVD from the '60s; yet there are no matches pre-1980 on this set. This seems to have been a very rushed job to cash-in on the popularity of (probably) England's most famous football club. Don't waste your money - I did, regrettably.
