Umm some interesting ones here!!! Firstly, away at palace in 1987, some 10,000 of us up there to party, just needing a point to get promoted back to the top flight for the first time since the 50s. Vince Hillaire gets sent off & a very young John Salako scores a late winner for them. Party on hold but Oldham lost the following night & that was enough to send up. Just a shame we couldn't have done it ourselves & partied in London. Also for the home game in 1991 & the championship winning party as we went to Bradford & won 5-0 another amazing day. In 2004 we hosted Arsenal, the unbeaten English champions & celebrated our own first season survival with a draw. Along with runners up Man Utd, we were the only 2 sides that season that Arsenal didn't beat in the league.
