Description

Back in the days of power cuts and perms, the only way football fans could see the stars of the day on TV was through programmes like Saturday night's Match of the Day and The Big Match on Sunday afternoon. Forty years ago, in a period dominated by mutton-chop sideburns and muddy pitches, Everton were top dogs on Merseyside, with Toffees legends like Howard Kendall, Alan Ball and Joe Royle ruling the roost. The Everton Big Match features a number of great games from the 1970s and early 1980s, including a 6-0 Goodison thrashing of Coventry City in 1977 and 5-1 away wins at Leicester City and QPR as the prolific Bob Latchford struck a rich vein of goals. This DVD relives an era which has taken on legendary status
