English Leagues the 70s: Chelsea Leeds FA Cup Final 1969 1970

Leeds were superior in organization and team skill, but Chelsea would never admit the possibility of defeat, and their eventual victory after four hours football was a triumph of spirit and determination. The Wembley pitch was in poor condition ‑ wet, patchy and sanded and when Jack Charlton's downward header after fifteen minutes failed to bounce, McCreadie kicked over it, and the ball rolled over the line. Houseman's ordinary‑looking shot from twenty yards went through Sprake's arms for a Chelsea equalizer just before half‑time. Jones' eightyfourth minute goal would have been a killing blow to most teams, but in two minutes Hutchinson headed Chelsea level again.The replay at Old Trafford was a less distinguished affair but again marked by long periods of domination by Leeds. For all of the first half during which Clarke had beaten three men in a swerving run and put Jones through to score‑and for a good part of the second, Leeds were quicker to the ball, covered better and passed more accurately. Twelve minutes from time Chelsea, incredibly, equalized again through Osgood.Chelsea went ahead for the first time in the first period of extra time, Webb heading through from Hutchinson's long throw, and the Londoners held on to win. 

It includes a short précis of 1970 from Jonathan Pearce, with footage from Chelsea’s cup run, Gordon Banks famous save from Pele in Mexico and some classic footage from ITV on the morning of the cup final. It also has interviews with Ron Harris, David Webb, John Hollins and Jack Charlton. The whole 90 mins plus extra time of both games is featured. There are 5 ‘Exclusive’ documentaries shot at Ron Harris’s ‘manor’ in Wiltshire. They include a Story of the Cup as told by the Skipper, with tales of celebratory drinking and general mayhem! Chopper talks about each and every member of that famous cup side, what they were like, what they achieved in their careers and what they are doing today. Alan Hudson tells all about his career and how he has had to struggle against life threatening injuries, how he continues to this day to have operations. Alan is joined by Tommy Baldwin to pick and argue about Chelsea’s All Time XI with the legendary Kerry Dixon acting as referee. The DVD is finished off with details of 1970 – the top films – top singles and albums – what was the TV line up on that Cup Final day – who won sports biggest prizes that year? – the news headlines of that year and a price comparison of what things cost in 1970 compared with today.
