Sunderland: The Big Match [DVD]
Packed with big hair, big tashes, but not so big shorts, The BIG Match is a nostalgic trip down memory lane, revisiting an era in which families across the land would huddle around the TV every weekend to watch live football beamed into their living rooms. Anchored by Brian Moore, this DVD will transport you to a time when football really was a funny old game; Bobby Kerr had a tash to rival any other; players showed more leg than a bucket of KFC; and the smell of bovine based drinks consumed the terraces of Roker Park.
The Big Match era was silver lined for Sunderland; truly a rollercoaster of emotions in which fans experienced the elation of promotion, the despair of relegation, the joy of a cup final and the birth of folk heroes. See the likes of a 17 year old Barry Venison changing the game and scoring a spectacular goal, relive the goalkeeping heroics of Jimmy Montgomery, and witness the leadership of Bobby Kerr, together with goal after goal from Gary Rowell.
So pick a spot in front of the telly for an afternoon of entertainment delivered with the charm, wit and style oozed by Brian Moore and Jimmy Hill, and revisit classic action from the best of The Big Match as the likes of Rowell, Lee, and Holden bang them in. [Feature Box] Bonus Content:
