The Got, Not Got Advent Calendar – Day 14

We are now over the halfway mark in the big December GOT NOT GOT challenge… one retro football post every day until Christmas Day… we can do it, especially with your help.

Josef Ogden on Twitter suggested we feature this Sheffield United programme with Dave Bassett starring as Santa Claus. It’s a bit hot for a beard though, being August.

Kevin Savage explained: “Harry Bassett decided Sheffield United didn’t start playing until after Xmas. So he had Xmas in August…”
It had the desired effect too, with Brian Deane scoring the first ever Premier League goal as the Blades beat Manchester United 2-1.

Happy August!
