Video of the Week: Match of the Eighties 1981/82

“This week’s Video Of The Week continues a series of the Danny Baker hosted BBC series ‘Match Of The Eighties’. This week, the BBC flexes its archive muscles for the 1981/82 season. It was – and this seems difficult to believe, even now – the first season of three points for a win in the Football League. It was also a season that saw one of the most remarkable come-backs in the history of English football. Liverpool had a disastrous start to the season and were in tenth place in the table at Christmas before going on an oustanding run throughout the second half of the season and grabbing the title from Ipswich Town on the last day of the season.” (twohundredpercent)
