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).
