Classic Moments: Sheffield Wednesday 4-0 Sheffield Utd – the Boxing Day massacre, 1979


A fascinating little video that reminds us how much professional football has changed in the last 28 years. Hooliganism was a real problem in the late 70s, and few English derbies scared the police more than the Owls vs Blades Sheffield showdown – even when both teams were in the old Third Division, as was the case in 1979.
This one at Hillsborough went off relatively smoothly, although Blades fans won’t want to be reminded of the result: 4-0 to the Wednesday.
