That was Stanley Mann. He thought we were up.

The Big Match revisited
 
has anyone been watching these on ITV4 there runnnig the 1978-79 season just coming up to the end of the season. (thursday morning ITV4 repeated friday & sunday mornings.)
Boy their funny, i think other than the terrible football i.e zero ball control and lack of modern day basic skill, even worst commentry (sorry Brian) has to be the pitches my god this weeks match at Derby there was so much sand on the pitch two centre half's were camels!

old skool football rocked!

Lord Flange 16-04-2009 03:41 PM

The pitches were a great leveller imo. And the commentary was usually calm and understated, much preferable to the modern day hysterionics.

by the way AATOT.

next week its bolton v ipswich,and i'm pretty sure its the game where frank worthington scored a classic goal.From what i remember the ball came over his head on the edge of the penalty area and as he and practically the whole of the ipswich team were running away from the goal,he flicked the ball over his head and the ipswich players,turned and run on and slotted the ball home.It looked more impressive than it probably was because it seemed to trick the whole ipswich team as they were running out on mass as a defending team do.

That Worthington goal is an all-time classic. Worryingly though, surely that was either Central or Granada's version of the Big Match. Bolton v Ipswich & West Brom v Wolves. Was Brian Moore even on there ?

In those days, each ITV region had their own version of The Big Match, focusing on their local teams. ITV4 is a national channel. I'm a wee bit concerned that come the weeks that we're expecting Palace's matches against Notts County & Orient, we'll get some Division One highlights from YTV, Anglia or some other godforsaken backwater.

Unfortunately, the Division One Championship was still undecided on the official final weekend of the season. I remember because Liverpool clinched it at home a few days before The Burnley match and there was a bigger crowd at Selhurst Park to see us secure our title than there was at Anfield. We can only hope, but I fear we might very well end up with just the goals from Palace's matches after extended highlights of a typically dour 1-0 Liverpool win away from home with an Ian Rush goal on the break and then 89 minutes of sideways passes between the Liverpool back four prior to the inevitable backpass to the keeper while the commentator gushes sycophantically about the mighty red's cultured, passing :S:

Its been the Brian Moore's london version every week so far,they had orient V brighton as the main game a couple of weeks back,so we should be ok........but I take your point,knowing our luck they'll pull the plug on the whole programme just as we're about to be on.

You're right. All the one's I've seen so far have been presented by Brian Moore and the main match involved a London team; I'm getting. Even so, I missed the first 10 minutes or so today but as far as I could tell, the 2 main matches this week were Bolton v Ipswich & West Brom v Wolves.

Was there a London match at the start ? Like I said, I worry that there's a chance that we'll get Granada's version or somewhere else if there was a potential League Championship decider.

I speak from bitter experience because (tragically) I can still remember the weekend of the Notts County match. In those days, we often visited my Grandmother who lived in Worthing on a Sunday and I can still recall gathering around her TV after lunch, expecting highlights of Saturday's Palace match. What we got was sodding Southern's version (presented by Gerald bloody Sinstadt ... the name still haunts me) which only showed the goals from our game after interminable highlights of some meaningless Southampton, Portsmouth (or more likely Brighton) match.
