These set of Big Match dvds are long overdue and are a must for anyone who loves football in the 70's. The Leeds United dvd features some matches I had forgotten about and brings back some great memories. Man City away is the best game here in my opinion, City in their classic all blue Umbro strip and Leeds in the even more classic Admiral yellow away kit with blue and yellow down the sleeves. The brilliant Tony Currie goal against Southampton in 1978 is also included. The games are shown season by season and the LWT signature logo and theme are here which adds to the throw back of Sunday lunchtimes in front of the telly. I hope ITV bring out a second offering as there are loads of great games in the archives which must be sat on a shelf somewhere gathering dust.
Perhaps the BBC will realise there is a market for classic 70's football and start a similar series of their own from Match of the Day and Sportsnight archives. Derby v Leeds FAC 1975 1-0 to Leeds (David Nish own goal) wanted please!!

This dvd is for Leeds United fans who can remember the great times between the late 1960s and the early 1980s. A time before there was so much money in the game, before the Premiere League or so called Champions League. In short, when footballers didn't go down like a sack of spuds at the slightest touch and football was a real contact sport played by real men, not the overpaid fame-obsessed players of today.
This has been compiled for Leeds fans who can remember life before Sky TV. If you miss the great days of 1st Division football, this really is a must.

Lots of action - almost three hours of Leeds. And, even better - an hour of extras from the studio. I must get more in the series. Some inaccuracies in the captions, and it ends rather suddenly - but otherwise, really brilliant.

This DVD was a birthday present for my husband, a life long Leeds Utd fan and particularly of the team during the Don Revie era. For him, Alan 'Sniffer' Clarke was the nearest thing to God and the wait for results outside the local TV retailer, nose pressed up watching the 'Granstand' vidi-printer for the results, a rite of teenage passage. Therefore, this DVD is a must. It has brought back so many happy memories and was money well spent. As for me....up the Arsenal !

HE APPEARS TO BE A NICE HARMLESS OLD MAN THOUGH BRIAN CLOUGH SAID OTHERWISE! WELL HISTORY FOGETS MEGLOMANIA WHERE BRIAN CLOUGH IS CONCERNED!BUT TO SEE SUPER LEEDS ON THIS GREAT DVD YOU ARE LEFT IN NO DOUBT WHY HE WANTED TO TOUCH THE HEM OF HIS DREAM MENTOR WHO PERHAPS SAW HIM AS HE REALLY WAS,BUT DON,T LET THAT GET IN THE WAY OF THE DAMMED UTD BIBLE!

Love them or loathe them, Leeds United in the late 60's and 70's, under Don Revie in particular, were a memorable, accomplished team with great players like Eddie Gray, Johnny Giles and captain Billy Bremner. They were in many ways the first 'modern' British football club, in terms of professionalism, preperation and organisation. The DVD provides great match highlights, highly nostalgic title sequences and fun extras from the studio.

When I was a boy Leeds were my team and I wanted to see if they were really as good as I remembered them, did they compare to the modern players and game? Wonderful nostalgia trip casting you right back to Sunday afternoons in the 70's with the Big Match theme and studio comments. This was a time when football was beautiful, ugly, sparkling and dirty. The tackles fly - the victims just get up, dust themselves off and carry on. The pitches sometimes have grass and if you think modern referees are bad.......
If there is one criticism it is a bias towards Leeds winning games (every game shown is a victory). I'd have liked to see some of the harder outings (defeats and draws if necessary), clashes against Aresenal, Liverpool, Derby, Ipswich and other powerful sides of the day.
A great DVD, I'd love to see more of the '70s footage coming out, especially lower leagues.
So, were they really as good as I remember? You bet! - and some!
Awesome.
