Getting promoted twice, winning 2 league cups (and losing another whilst in the Third Division) and thumping the European Champions 5-1.

The breathtaking football we played in 76-77, and the tonkings we handed out to so many teams at VP that season, not just the 5-1 against Liverpool.

I still maintain that was the most entertaining Villa side I've ever seen.
