The Big Match - Week 27

This week's Big Match is the League Cup final between Manchester City and Newcastle United played the last weekend of February 1976.

The mid-70's Wembley goals were history of goal nets gold;

Beautifully curved stanchions (which had an almost magnetic draw for the ball, as per Dennis Tueart's overhead kick) ;

And slightly saggy goal nets which maximised ball retention while bulging beautifully when a low shot was swept in (as per Alan Gowling's equaliser for Newcastle).
