While plumbing the depths of Youtube to turn up those unsettling opening titles from a 1991 edition of Match of the Day yesterday, we unwittingly unearthed another little gem in the shape of the intro to the first ever “Ford Super Sunday” programme – first broadcast in 1992 when Sky Sports showed up and ruined football forever more.

How many lesser-spotted yellow nylons had to die for Richard Keys to have that jacket made? Look at the bloody state of it!

Here we go – it was, quite literally, all downhill from here..

*Sigh* Remember when Forest used to be referred to as “hot-shot giants”?

    “Nottingham: one of the prettiest cities in the country”. They we’e full of sh*t from the start.

      @Sirreg: I could take that from a man who didn’t hail from a retail park on the outskirts of civilisation.

  2. Terry Shedingham says:

    You preempted my comment! Downhill from there indeed. Top flight football never seemed quite as special thereafter.

  3. Stu says:

    Here we go, here we go, here we go THIS IS IT!!!!!

  4. Murray says:

    Have to say, as an American reader, the Forest and Liverpool crests colliding into each other and exploding @ 1:08 flat out KILLS me.

  5. Tom the Bees fan says:

    ” a sporting tradition stretching all the way back to robin hood.” what is he on about! lol

  6. Sterile Cheddar Wedge says:

    Back when Richard Keys sounded like he had a spine.

  7. Kin Ju Bing says:

    “Mighty Liverpool” LOL

  8. rone says:

    I didn’t realise R.Hood played as a defender for Forest back in the day! Also the city ground looks “well”-what were they smoking before that broadcast?

  9. Nathaniel Quackenbush says:

    The theme tune is still better then that painful dirge they have these days
