Packed with big hair, big tashes, but not so big shorts, The BIG Match is a nostalgic trip down memory lane, revisiting an era in which families across the land would huddle around the TV every weekend to watch live football beamed into their living room. Anchored by Brian Moore, this DVD will transport you to a time when football really was a funny old game; nobody batted an eye at Bobby Charlton s combover; players showed off more leg than a bucket of KFC; and the smell of bovine based drinks filled the terraces. So pick a spot in front of the telly for an afternoon of entertainment delivered with the charm, wit and style oozed by Brian Moore and Jimmy Hill, and revisit classic action from the best of The BIG Match as the likes of Charlton, Best, and Law bang them in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Match, Big Hair. 6 July 2009
Whether you were around a this time or not, this is a fascinating insight into the wonderful world of Division One football when times were less pretentious, footballers more earthy and studios looked like they were taken straight from MFI (which they probably were.)
This was not the greatest period in United's great history, but it would be hard to rival it for stylish kits, devil may care attacking football on unconducive pitches and noisy crowds creating a real atmosphere.
If you love United buy it, if you loved the Seventies, buy it and if you have been brought up in the era of the overblown and over hyped Premier League, buy it and see how football used to be in a more honest and respectable time that was astonishiongly only three decades ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars sunday afternoons and admiral kits 14 Dec 2009
loved everything about this dvd apart from the quality of some of the games,surely a bit of time could have been spent re-mastering or cleaning up some of the images,the United v l'pool game from 1980 was particularly disappointing with flickering on the picture,that said i still enjoyed the dvd immensely and hopefully itv have got sense enough to issue a 2nd volume?

The great thing about this DVD is it gives you a fascinating insight into what football coverage was like in the 70's (pre Sky of course). The late, great Brian Moore is host for each match and there is post match analysis in some games from Jimmy Hill. There's no ridiculous squad names and numbers on player shirts and the game seems to be played in a less cynical way than today. There seems to be a greater honesty and integrity about the players on show and referees seem to let the matches flow more than those of today.
Not United's greatest period but the DVD shows matches from 1970 right up to 83 and some great goals by Best, Law, Charlton, Macari and Robson feature.
So order a copy and enjoy football from an era when football was played on boggy pitches, kicked off at 3 on a Saturday afternoon, people stood on terraces and opposition fans clapped opponents goals!

I had been looking forward to this for a couple of weeks and as soon as the postman brought it, I put it on my dvd player. What can I say? It is absolutely brilliant, right from the very start. Manchester United games, with George Best featuring in four of the little highlights, there are viewers letters, fun features and fantastic Christmas items from the Seventies, including the surreal sight of Kevin Keegan, Mike Channon and Elton John presenting the show from about 1976. Other highlights include clips of Peter Taylor talking about his ill-fated book on Clough (which lead to their split) George Best talking about his six goals at Northampton, a thirty-eight year-old Martin Peters, Brazil 1970 and a clip of a twenty-one year-old genius called Maradona. We also get the titles for The Big Match for every season from 1970 to 1982. Magic, I can`t wait for other dvds to be released.
