Match Day is for me one of the most iconic games of the Spectrum era, not just for it's sentimental value, which its quite big, I played countless times, but also for it's value as a game.
The exquisite presentation, graphics and sound, and specially gameplay, turned this game into one of the best games to scratch the surface of the software world of its time.
The game has it's faults specially when compared to other classics like 'Emlyn Hughes'. Thankfully some were corrected in the sequel, but its still a brilliant game.
For me this together with 'Emlyn Hughes' is the SOCCER game of reference in the ZX Spectrum.
