2-0 v Valencia apparently 40 years ago
2-0 v Swansea play off semi
5-3 v Man Utd 1978
many other decent games around 78/79 ish

Coventry 7-1 was a good one when they had that brown kit on.

beating villa 3 -1 in 1984, hilarious watching big Cyrill racing from the half way line miss hitting his shot but scoring and two villa defenders left in his wake.

some odd statistics between the two teams, odd that both teams do better away from home.

I still get goose bumps watching this and to be honest, I'm still not sure he's going to score!

This is tough usually as a baggie you carry some doubt so although I share the thought of many of those posted the fear during an important match such as the playoff final would discount it for me.
Loved beating wulfs 3-2 although Bradders nearly gave me a heart attack.
Loved beating vile 1-0 in the qtr final of the Lge Cup.
What gave me the most satisfaction and pride was our first promotion under Meggers back in the big time and beating the wulfs to boot could hardly be better.

Might sound odd but mine is the 5-3 win over Palace in about 1988 when Goodman outshone Wright and Bright scoring a hat trick. It was the first time I had seen us not be crap. We then went on a great run - including a 6-0 win over Stoke before we got hacked out the cup by Everton who crocked Diego and that was an end to our hopes that year.

Promotions and great escape aside that Livermore goal against Tottenham last season was really overwhelming.
