Quite a few of them. The highlights V Man UUUU and the D'Alessandro goal

Ahhh, there at Notts County when paul headed the winner, thought that was going to be enough to get us promoted, then the news came through that West Ham had a thumping win!!! Watford in 1995 in a nothing match & that first win over the Mancs with my namesake getting the goal. What a day that was.
