Video Of The Day: Halifax Town vs Manchester City, 1980

by | Jan 6, 2016

The new layout of this site allows us to offer a few new services from now on (Had you not noticed the small handful of news stories that we’re putting up every day? Shame on you!), and one of these is the return of Video Of The Day, which some of you may remember from several years ago. As it’s the FA Cup Third Round on Saturday, the rest of this week’s selections are going to be from this stage of the competition, kicking off with a match between Halifax Town, then of the Fourth Division of the Football League, and Manchester City. In those days, of course, Manchester City would have period spells in crisis, and this certainly marked a low point for a team that had looked like potential challengers to Liverpool and Nottingham Forest near the top of the table not many years previously. Commentary comes from a young Martin Tyler, of all people.
