Results That Seem Unlikely Today

Ipswich 6 Manchester United 0 (March 1980)

It may seem unlikely today but this was when Ipswich were probably at their best under Bobby Robson. I don't think they won any trophies in that season- but they had won the F.A. cup in 1978 and would win the Uefa Cup in 1981. I guess what was better about English football in those days was that it was possible for clubs like Ipswich, Nottingham Forest and Villa (and maybe even Watford) to challenge at the very highest level- usually as a result of having very good managers.
