    We went top after beating Wolves at home very late on, no?

    I was only a nipper and was heading up the Main Stand steps with my dad when I turned and think it was Trevor Francis scoring with a lob?

    To this day, remember how packed Maine Road was and the noise

    28th December: 40,298 was the official crowd but I'm sure plenty of fans will claim the counters built into each turnstile somehow became disconnected.
    Going top after this game sort of rings a bell, though I thought we went top at Anfield a couple of days earlier.

    £1.5 million on Steve Daley. Borrowing to buy a donkey is never wise. Sudden decline from that point.

    I remember being really pissed off with that too. Lillis was a die hard blue and was desperate to stay, good player too. Didn't we get Trevor Christie as a replacement as well, he was fucking dire just to rub it in.

    Think your right , quite sure we signed Paul Stewart another Manchester lad from Blackpool soon after and he went the same way , we were skint so the club sold him to Spuds for £2m ,after he had a one brilliant season for us .Things have certainly changed ,now we have a £25m ex Real Madrid full back warming the bench :)

    I think we went top at Anfield from memory. I didn't get along to that many matches then, I was at University but went to both the Liverpool and Wolves match. I remember being in the Kippax and seeing Trevor Francis and the sheer expectancy whenever he went near the ball. He was very good then.
