Classic Moments: The Weird, Strangely Erotic ‘Match Of The Day’ Opening Titles Which Were Only Used Once, 1990/91 (Video)

By Chris Wright

Here we have it folks: the weird, hyper-colour, strangely erotic (there’s a shower scene for God’s sake) “Match of the Day” opening titles which were used for one week and one week only for the FA Cup first round edition of the programme during the 1990/91 season before disappearing forever..

The new title sequence also came complete with a new, ultra 1990s, acid house-style rejigged theme tune which sounded like it was composed on a “My First Bontempi” organ and was, as you may have guessed by now, well and truly lousy…

Was it real? Was it all just some terrible hive-mind mirage? Who knows? At least it had the good grace to not stick around.

    Good gravy, was this a rejected segment in Todd Haynes’s “Poison”? Maybe a video Kenneth Anger tried to direct for the Village People? I can’t imagine why they only used it once.

    Jesus, that’s not Acid House in the slightest!

    That’s a drum preset on a 30 quid Casio keyboard from Argos, complete with a Duty Free theme tune bassline and a shite whistle effect.

    My god that was truly awful.

    Please apologize to Acid House by listening to Laurent X – Machines.

    I don’t know what part of you thought that was erotic! Chris, you need to be taken to a vet to be neutered!

    Sounds like Blackadder mixed with Adamski

    Makes the theme tune to Fingerbobs sound like a great Ukrainian folk standard
