The Big Match Christmas Special – 21st December 1974

by | Dec 22, 2015

If you haven’t been reading the newspapers, Christmas is almost upon us, and it’s a time of year when that’s perfect for letting our hair down and relaxing a little. So, with that in mind, this evening we’re not going to confuse you with too many words, but with a video from the archives and an episode of The Big Match from the 21st December 1974 which was trailed as a Christmas special and is hosted by the then Arsenal defender Terry Mancini, with the assistance of Rodney Marsh and Terry Venables. In amongst the very peculiar 1970s “banter” some football does break out, and the three matches featured are between Chelsea and West Ham United, Grimsby Town and Charlton Athletic, and Newcastle United and Leeds United.
