Nottingham Forest 4 - 0 Man United 1990
Nottingham Forest against Man Utd in the 84/85 season. One of the great comebacks by Forest. They were 2-0 down at half time and had managed to get back to 2-2 in the second half when they got a freekick in the final minute of the game. Johnny Metgod scores beautifully.

West Ham Utd vs Wimbledon - 22nd November 1989, Littlewoods Cup 4th Round. Martin Allen scores an absolute rocket to settle a bad-tempered London derby. Look out for a tubby Justin Fashanu in the build-up (and Mad Dog frantically trying to outrun him in the celebration…).
