Viva Video VII

I know what you’re thinking… this is just a cop-out feature to keep the website’s content turning over on slow news weeks. And of course you would be exactly right. However, since it began almost two months ago it has given me an excuse to trawl the world wide web and watch an array of football videos of varying quality. From awful camera phone celebration footage to long forgotten football moments.

This week’s selection falls very much into the latter of those categories. Pele and Plymouth Argyle, aside from an initial and a sport you would think there would be little to suggest these two could come together in a venn diagram, and you would think the chances of that being on tape are even slimmer than Pete Doherty’s jeans. Alas, however in the 1970s the great Santos toured the UK and amongst their footballing venues they chose Home Park.

So come with us now to a world of cheap graphics and improbable scorelines.
