Or, how not to make Fuck the Albion last for seven hundred words.

Good stuff Dave.
Can you please tell me where the picture of Villa Park with the tram in front came from?

Agree on your final point

Last year, in my heart of hearts I just knew wolves and Fulham were better

Currently I don't think anyone is. So as a minimum I'd fancy us in the play offs we will surely be in

But I still think automatic is doable. I just can't see Leeds AND Norwich both sustaining this form, and on the evidence of recent games surely we can finish above Leeds, Boro or the baggies?

Well said Dave. Makes me laugh at all the fans saying it was ball to hand when the scorer said the opposite. Perhaps they had a better view than him?  ;D

For the younger members, Richardson handled the ball on the line stopping a certain goal (an equaliser iirc) against Everton at Goodison in the 84 LC semi final. I got the day off school to go.

If youíre still wondering how the officials missed Friday nights well I reckon this one was worse. Itíll be on You Tube somewhere.

I was wondering had I missed Diego Armando's cameo for us against Leeds at Wembley in '96.
