This week’s Video Of The Week takes us back to the 1972/73 (the football season during which, fact fans, I was born) football season, with another episode of “Match Of The Seventies”. The 1972/73 season featured a prototype version of the Liverpool team that would go on to rule Europe later on in the decade and in the 1980s pipping Arsenal and Leeds United to the First Division championship, while Sunderland surprised Leeds in the FA Cup final, whilst Spurs won the Football League Cup at Wembley against Norwich City.

    If you are interested. I have the video from the season after this one. I watch it all the time, as it is the year that Man U got relegated. It serves as a pleasant reminder of where hubris gets you, although with Leeds and Newcastle, I have two right in front of me.
