On this day in history rumours of a take over were floating around.

The last 3 games. Most painful was the win over Grimsby in 1992. Another goal & we would have been promoted. As it was Grimsby came down & played like their lives depended on it. West Ham were second & we blew up to Leicester in the play offs.

Just Grimsby and Matt is right it was a tough game!
