If it’s Everton, I’d like it to be 1980 all over again

I doubt we will take 20,000 though, like in 1980.

Everton’s biggest post war attendance for a game other than a Merseyside derby, it was, I believe.[/quote]

Not true that, I’m afraid Dave.

Everton v Wigan was 51,863.

Just a very quick look at a couple of games I went to at Goodison shows
Everton v Leeds 1969 – 53,253
Everton v Man U 1971 – 52,151
and I only went infrequently to Goodison. Remember too that in the 50s and 60s the capacity of Goodison was bigger too.
