Spurs v West Ham, 1970-71: Video Highlights

While there’s no Premier League matches on until next weekend, here’s another video from yesteryear to show how much the game of English football has changed as well as to give us video evidence of some of the legendary players of England.

The video features first half highlights from the London derby between Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United from the 1970-71 season. On the West Ham side is Bobby Moore, Trevor Brooking, Jimmy Greaves, Frank Lampard Sr., Geoff Hurst and others, while the Tottenham squad features Pat Jennings, Steve Perryman, Martin Peters, Alan Mullery, Mike England and many other legends.

The game is from the TV show, The Big Match, featuring Brian Moore as both the presenter and the commentator. One additional note is how interesting it was to hear a section of the crowd singing “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
