    Did anyone else see 'The Kick Off Match' (which is on instead on The Big Match Revisited sometimes) this morning?

    It was a game between Sunderland and Wrexham from 1978 or 1979 and I couldn't believe my eyes when a player from Wrexham (I didn't catch his first name but his surname was Fox) exposed himself (by accident I hope!), he was fouled by a Sunderland player and the camera panned in as he sat on the ground with his erm tackle hanging out

    Put me right off my breakfast!
    I only remember two players called Fox from that era. As Peter Fox was a keeper, he could be ruled out. I checked former Birmingham player Steve Fox and he had played for Wrexham. He sadly died of cancer apparently.
    My memory of players back then comes from my vast football card collection.
    I regularly watch The Big Match Revisited. It's great viewing.

    This sounds interesting and is good to know yeah ... thanks

    I can remember an annual I had from 92-ish I found a few weeks back in Lockdown Mk 1 (but can't remember now where I put it, or if I gave it a Charity Shop even)!

    I also remember those good old times. Nowadays I have not so much time for monitoring all the teams, which are interested to me. But if I do, I prefer to visit 55goal website to watch some live football match scores, or read analytics articles about any of the soccer team or championship, and it helps a lot with it.

    I watch most of these reruns on a Saturday

    Some great old names too.

    Does anyone know which team Brian Moore the commentator supported ?

    I think he may have been on the board of directors too.

    I watch these if I'm aware they're on. We have been on it once to my knowledge. Brilliant days of farmyard pitches, frozen pitches, orange balls on snow and when shirts were proper shirts, not like the three quarter length things these days though conversely they look like the knickerbockers of medieval times.

    They seem to be repeating 1979 endlessly now. It's a shame they couldn't show more. Were 79 and 83 the years that MOTD wasn't on, and is it somehow related to rights, do you think?

    It does a bit yes!

    The Kick Off Match theme tune was way better I think.

    did you finish your brekkie.

    Just about Darren!

    I'm surprised it wasn't spotted though as it's been shown a few times. Now I know why they make them wear long shorts

    Re: The Big Match Revisited

    I've been watching these since last year - they're great. Still seem odd when you see a back-pass to the keeper. I saw the Derby Co. Vs Notts Forest game a few weeks ago. There was more sand on that pitch than Blackpool beach.

    Also, Is it just me or does The Big Match theme tune sound like the start of Battle of the Planets?

    The Big Match Revisited

    They are now revisiting 1979, this week it was 14th January only saw last game Leeds v Man City 1-1, a cracking goal from B.Kidd to equalise, it's good to see all the old players and shirts from childhood. It can be watched again on ITV's website (only 30 days left mind).
