Only one defeat since the war and those four goals, who will ever forget those four goals? Yes of course 1979 and the evening thrashing of Donnie Rovers and a Colin Garwod hat-trick, Wonderful stuff and nearly 6,000 there too!!

5 years since that wonderful day that ensured our superiority against that lot down the road. What a day, just to see floppychops face sink.

6 homes games for me starting in 1984 against top of the table Chelsea. (not much has changed). However only one game really matters, the slaughter of the scum. 4-1 & it should have been much more. So happy we sent the scum down. An iconic day to be there!!!
