Great article that

Can remember the mclaughlin goal and san marinos opener

Couldnt have gone much better for us- england and france getting dumped out while we rescued a point to sicken the pub teams desperate attempts to deny usClap

It took City 44 years to win the league and 10 months to lose it

Fantastic article - i remember the silence in the pub when Quinn scored - eventually followed by nothing but utter relief when the the Spain game finished.

In the feverish aftermath, Charlton decided to score a point. "I spotted Billy [Bingham] talking among his players and moved in his direction to congratulate him on his retirement and compliment him on a good game," he said in his autobiography. "At least that was my intention. Instead, in a moment I still find difficult to understand, I pointed a finger at him and blurted 'Up yours too, Billy.'"

 
LOL 
 
 
Poor Wales though jaysus christ, France though fcukin hell it's a wonder Ginola made it out of France alive.
 
 
There'll never be a night like that in European Qualification again. 8 spaces available to be decided by  nine fixtures Shocked.
 
Like Ken though only thing I remember about that night is our game,San Marino's goal against England and the result coming in from Seville never realised we needed Spain to win. (In fact I'd always thought for some reason that, that game had finished as a draw)
