Video of the Day: Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur, March 1985

In tomorrow afternoon’s late kick-off, Tottenham Hotspur travel to play Liverpool in a match that is critical to Spurs’ chances of both staying in touch with Leicester City at the top of the Premier League table and staying a step ahead of third placed Arsenal. Spurs haven’t won at Anfield since May 2011, but a five year run without a win there is nothing in comparison with their longest, a record that stretched from 1912 to this morning’s match, in May 1985 – seventy-three victory free years. Having won the Football League Championship and the European Cup at the...

Video of the Day: Manchester United vs Liverpool, April 1968

This evening at Old Trafford, Manchester United face the herculean task of overcoming a two goal deficit against Liverpool in the second leg of their Europa League match. It’ll certainly be a tall order, and between this match and their FA Cup replay against West Ham United next week, the overall complexion of the club’s season may well come to be defined over the next five days or so. If there are any consolations that Manchester United supporters can take from all of this, it’s probably that this state of affairs won’t last forever. The financial might of the...

Video of the Day: Birmingham City vs Wolves, November 1981

At the time of writing, there’s a strong possibility that West Bromwich Albion may be the only West Midlands representatives in the top division of English football next season. With Aston Villa still sitting hopelessly adrift of the rest at the bottom of the table, though, at least the Football League Championship could be in for some interesting derby matches next season. Birmingham City are currently five points off the play-off places – although they do have two games in hand on the teams above them in the table – in ninth place in the table and Wolverhampton Wanderers...

Video of the Day: Manchester United vs Liverpool, February 1983

The Europa League has thrown up a little something to please television schedulers this evening, as Liverpool and Manchester United face off against each other in European competition for the first time at Anfield this evening. It says something for the last couple of seasons that both clubs have had that this should be occurring in the Europa League rather than the Champions League, but such considerations will probably be quite a long way from the forefront of anybody’s thoughts as the clubs kick-off tonight. This is, of course, one of English football’s angrier rivalries, and with neither club...

Video of the Day: Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool, September 1978

It’s now almost forty years since Nottingham Forest surprised English football in a way that may be starting to feel eerily familiar to supporters watching Premier League football this season. Brian Clough had arrived at The City Ground in 1975, taking Forest into the First Division of the Football League and then to the top of that division at the end of the 1977/78 season. The draw once there, however, was not a kind one. For the club’s first ever European tie, they were drawn to play the team that won the completion for the previous two years and,...
