The Big Match

Takes me back. A typical weekend during the season:

Saturday morning - play for the school
Saturday afternoon - Southern Amateur League against guys twice your size
Sunday morning - ringer for the local pub team
Sunday afternoon - Big Match (on a black and white telly that took about a minute to warm up)

Three games in a weekend and my poor mum with a mountain of washing (only posh people had washing machines in them days).

... and you tell that to the kids of today and they'll never believe you...

Those were the days when commentators actually commentated on the match and not on their list of fucking pointless stats....

Was that spent on the hooker? A penny to tit her up, tuppence to look at her tuppence, thrupence to feel it, a shilling for a handy j, sixpence for a blowie, two Bob to lean her against a post and light her lamp, half a crown to get in the brown?
 
Found the dusty box and i think there are some missing but the garage is freezing so here is what i have. No idea how to manage this so can someone more cleverer than what i am please suggest a way? As i say i will donate anything to Robbo's charity. Jack's each i think is fair.

This was a great day. Argentinians, ticker tape, Hoddle and Taylor, 52k crowd, agro up and down High rd, Park lane and in the ground, atmosphere brilliant and a great football match. Only things that spoilt it were the cages and a fucking alsation ripping my strides.

 
I have over 40 VHS Spurs tapes if anyones interested. I even have 'the match' which was a Tottenham official recording of the game. I have Southampton and United at home at the end of the 89/90 season. Most are 1980's and some 1990's. I will dig them out later and list them on here so if anyone wants them let's say a fiver each which i will give to Graham Roberts' charity.
Stick them on YouTube I’ll donate to the charity on behalf of TFC Forum

Nice idea.. I'd do the same but converting all those tapes; that's a seriously time consuming proposition... Tape length x 3 approx.

One of my first Tottenham Christmas presents was Greavsie’s “6 Of The Best” videos from the 1980s. It had that match, Watford away with the Hoddle chip and a few other decent ones. They’re almost like Bible stories to me. Forever locked in my mind as part of our culture and history. Love it.
I still have that video.....and a recorder to play it on!!!

Lest we forget. The single stairs up to the dressing rooms, both sides going up together. The tackles and the pitches. Earthier. But 52,000 on that afternoon in WHL and an incredible atmosphere. A very different football feast today but soon 62,000 in the NWHL and the single terrace. Goosebumps.
