Video: Classic Game : Manchester United v WBA 1978

When posting classic games on a Manchester United website there is a preference to share big or important wins. Unfortunately – and let’s hope that tomorrow’s game bucks that trend – those kind of results against West Brom have been few and far between in the Premier League era.

When picking, then, a game that had entertainment and thrills and spills maybe it’s better to go back to a time when wins earned just two points. There is some bias here as United legend Brian Greenhoff was a dear friend to us at the website and Brian scored what was arguably his best ever goal for the club in this game.

United lost 5-3 in a game that represented West Brom’s last victory at Old Trafford until it became one of many of such records to topple under David Moyes.
