Match of the Day: 50 Years of Football
by Constable, Nick

Remember Arsenal's last-gasp winner to take the title at Anfield in '89? Ronnie Radford's wonder strike to sink Newcastle in the FA Cup? Or, best of all, Geoff Hurst's hat-trick wining the World Cup for England in 1966? Over half a century, Match of the Day has witnessed some of the greatest moments in football history, week in, week out. From the big shorts and brown leather balls of the Stanley Matthews era, through the classic tussles of the old First Division, right up to the glamour of the globe-spanning game that we know today, football has undergone an incredible journey - and now, in this milestone 50th year, Match of the Day celebrates the very best of the drama and the heartache. With evocative memorabilia and photography throughout, relive the story of the beautiful game, season-by-season. Featuring favourite Match of the Day memories from top players and long-standing members of the MOTD team, this is the ultimate collection of football memories for any fan.
