Newcastle United - The Big Match DVD is a superb collection of highlights from 9 Newcastle United victories from the 1970s and 1980s as captured by the legendary ITV Big Match cameras.
Back in the days of power cuts, perms and muddy pitches 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. Featuring footage from ITV's The Big Match you can now relive an era which has taken on legendary status.
Trophies were far and far between on Tyneside during a period dominated by mutton-chop sideburns and muddy pitches, but the crowds still flocked to watch the Magpies and roar on the likes of Malcolm Macdonald, Terry McDermott and Frank Clark. The Newcastle United Big Match features a number of great games from the 1970s and early 1980s, including Supermac's stunning hat-trick on his home debut in the 3-2 victory over Liverpool in 1971 and a 5-0 crushing of Chelsea in 1974.
