Match of the Day 2 - Week 36
Another top Match of the Day this forthcoming weekend - the clash of managerial styles that is Manchester City v Crystal Palace!
We preview the game by first looking back at the 1970 fixture between the sides, when the wide white A-frames of old Maine Road were so Big Sam Allardyce yet the nets hung loose, Continental-Pep Guardiola-style.
Next we look at the FA Cup tie from 1981, where the City nets are now blue Continental D's, but lurking in the Palace dugout is old-style Malcolm Allison, minus hat, pulling on a cigarette.
