Video of the Day: The 1995 FA Cup Final

The 1994/95 season was not especially kind to Manchester United. Having won the league and cup double at the end of the previous season, they started as the favourites to regain their crown, but a financially plumpened Blackburn Rovers pipped them to that particular title with a team led by Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton which could even afford to lose their last match of the season as Manchester United also lost theirs, at West Ham United. With the League Cup having been won by Liverpool, who had beaten Bolton Wanderers in the final of that competition, this was...

Video of the Day: The 1966 FA Cup Final

In both the league and the FA Cup, the 1950s were not especially kind to football on Merseyside. Everton were relegated to the Second Division for only the second – and, to date, the last – time in the club’s history in 1951, and their promotion back three years later coincided with Liverpool getting relegated, meaning that the only Merseyside Derby match played between January 1951 and 1962 came when the two clubs were drawn against each other in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup in 1955. By the middle of the following decade, however, Liverpool had been...

In addition to this, we have comment on Brighton & Hove Albion’s performance in the Football League Championship play-off semi-finals. You can...

Video of the Day: Sunderland vs Everton, March 1983

Sunderland play Everton at Roker Park this evening in a Premier League match which may secure their place in the top division and relegate their fierce rivals Newcastle United at the same time. Considering the extent to which Everton have only just been turning up for matches of late, never mind competing in them, it would appear that Sam Allardyce may be set to work his magic again and pull this club back from the brink, and even in the event of them failing this evening, they would still have another chance on Sunday, when a win in their...

Video of the Day: Leicester City vs Everton, February 1985

There will be something of a party atmosphere at The King Power Stadium on Saturday when Leicester City take to the pitch to play Everton in the Premier League in their first match after having been crowned as champions of the division. This morning, however, we’re going back in time by a little over thirty years to a season when it was an Everton team visiting Leicester that was chasing the league title. How different times were in February 1985. Everton traveled to Filbert Street four points clear at the top of the table, three points clear of Tottenham...
