For Baggies fans and lovers of attacking football,
This review is from: West Bromwich Albion - On The Fifth Day Of Christmas [DVD] (DVD)For Baggies fans of the modern era, this is their high water mark: no Albion side since the 78-9 season has come closer to winning the top prize in English football, nor has any played football of such quality. The "Man U 5-3" game is etched in the minds of fans who followed the Baggies when they were, for a brief time, one of the best clubs in Europe. The video of that Match just after Christmas shows why Albion nearly won the league that season--a showcase for the exciting, aggressive football playe by Robson, Regis, Cunningham, Brown and the rest.
Sadly, Baggies fans still cling to the memory of this game, as we have never seen the like since. But what a memory to cling to! If you love attacking football, and have a fondness for the style(s) of the late 70's, you will enjoy this match. And if you are too young to remember that season, you will discover some forgotten greats here (Cunningham, Cantello, Ally Brown) and see some of the best players of their day in prime form (Regis, Tony Brown, Robson, Copell, McQueen, Greenhoffs).
A game to warm the heart of any soccer fan.
