Product Description

Product Description

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 rooms. Anchored by Brian Moore, this DVD will transport you to a time when football really was a funny old game; Bobby Kerr had a tash to rival any other; players showed more leg than a bucket of KFC; and the smell of bovine based drinks consumed the terraces of Roker Park. The Big Match era was silver lined for Sunderland; truly a rollercoaster of emotions in which fans experienced the elation of promotion, the despair of relegation, the joy of a cup final and the birth of folk heroes. See the likes of a 17 year old Barry Venison changing the game and scoring a spectacular goal, relive the goalkeeping heroics of Jimmy Montgomery, and witness the leadership of Bobby Kerr, together with goal after goal from Gary Rowell. 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 Rowell, Lee, and Holden bang them in. [Feature Box] Bonus Content: The BIG Match was the original football magazine show; delivering top match action whilst going that bit further to inform and amuse; the best of which has been preserved on this DVD which contains over 90 minutes of extras.

As someone who has suffered the (near permanent) pain of watching Sunderland for almost half a century, this is just great. Apart from ome match (a 3-3 home draw with Millwall in 1971-72), this is back to back Sunderland victories.

It brought back great memories of some great players - Monty, Dave Watson, Bobby Kerr, Hughsie, Dennis Tueart, Gary Rowell (legends all) to name but a few, together with some rarities (a Wayne Entwistle hat-trick in a 5-0 demolition of Bristol Rovers, Barry Dunn making a great jinking run to the byline and then crossing for Kevin Arnott's equaliser in a 2-1 win against Chelsea in 1979-80, and a Stan Cummins HEADED goal!).

Enjoy the awful 70s hairstyles and facial hair, recoil in horror at the ghastly candy-stripe shirts of the early 80s, but savour also some great play and great goals. The stand-out game for me? 6-0 against West Ham in the heartbreak season of '76-77. Best goal? Bobby Kerr's wicked cross for Dennis Tueart to hit a superb volley inches from the ground for the winner away to Oxford in 1973-74 (the last time we fielded our '73 Cup-winning side in a League game).

Wallow in nostagia watching this ... it's great value and a great reminder of times past! Enjoy!!

FROM LOOKING BACK AT 70S EARLY 80S SUNDERLAND,ONE IS ABLE TO RECALL LOTS OF GREAT LITTLE PLAYERS LIKE KERR,TUEART,CUMMINS AND EVEN AN EARLY MCOIST! WHO ON MISSING A SITTER AT MAINE ROAD IS ABUSED WITH 'YOUR EVEN WORSE THAN GARY BIRTLES'.AH YES CHANTS OF YESTERDAY, WHAT ABOUT.... 'IN YOUR CHELSEA SLUMS' CAN'T IMAGINE THE SPECIAL ONE AND HIS RUSSIAN FRIEND LOOKING AT ANYTHING BUT LOBSTER IN THE STAMFORD BRIDGE DUSTBIN TODAY! (IT WAS STILL RATS ON THE MENU CIRCA 79 WITH THAT WINTERS DISCONTENT). LOTS OF GREAT OLD GROUNDS, THE OLD VALLEY, AND THEM BIG OLD TERRACES,NOT TO MENTION THE DOUBLE SIZED ROKER END!.GREAT TO SEE STOKOE AT OXFORD IN 73 WITH NICE COMB OVER AND BIG MATCH TIE! AS ALWAYS THESE DVDS ARE GREAT FUN FOR ALL FANS OF ANY AGE I LOVE EM. I HAVE TO SAY I THOUGHT THE 73-4 KIT WITH SWEAT BANDS LOOKED GOOD,AND I,M IN A MINORITY BUT I THOUGHT THE 81-82 PIN STRIPE WAS CLASSIC.FROM AMAZON UK.
