Your memory plays tricks, but I seem to remember in my younger days that we would thrash sides on a regular basis compared todays scraping through by a single goal, but is this true or is just my rose tinted glasses?

Below I've listed every victory by four goals or more since 1958 (apolgies for any errors or ommissions), and it certainly does prove the point, 64 in all, of which in season 1968-69 we recorded eight such results. Apart from 10-1 and 9-0 wins in the Cup, a 6-1 in the League cup, in the League we also had a 6-1, a 5-0 and three by 4-0. More four goal margins in that one season than we have seen in the last twenty years!

I feel sorry for the modern day shrimpers that missed those magical years, I know football has changed but the excitement and hype of a big win hasn't.

Of those I have seen 25 of the 64 (not good for my age but I spent 25 years in exile), understanding that many of these may have been before you were born how many have you seen?
