Saw this on Twitter, 25 years ago today:
Forget just how good Bully was sometimes. Nice pass from Corica in there too ;)

Incredible game to watch (the quality is obviously not very good, objectively). Osborn's pass for the winner is better than anything Paul Cook ever did...

There is some surprisingly good football in there at places.

Interesting that the penalty for Francis is very similar to that Lacazette got a few weeks ago,

I've seen an Evian team with Yannick Sagbo up front play good football, tbf.

I think you can find flashes of really competent stuff at all sorts of levels.

I'm still not sure how Francis got the penalty. I keep looking for contact

I'll go a step further. I have seen a Dean Saunders team play good football.

Second half, Leicester away. We played really well. Created loads. SEB missed a couple of chances you'd expect him to score. O'Hara pulling the strings. It looked like we were getting somewhere. We lost but you thought "carry on like that and we'll be fine".

Then obviously he never played that team, system or style ever again.

Complete air kick and didn't clash with the player attempting the block.

Yeah that was so weird.

What a goal by Bakary too. On his right foot!

We're defenders not allowed to move back then? Amount of space for anyone who happened to get on the ball was a joke.

You can never overestimate how genuinely rubbish West Midlands football (outwith Villa) was in the 90s.

As ever Walsall had to take it a step too far.

The atmosphere that day was vile, but in a good way. I love when Molineux is like that, it's at its best when it feels hard done by and is positively seething. (think City at home for the 3-2, or even in defeat when Rennie fucked us over against Bolton)

Kevin 'Bambi on Ice' Francis :LOL:

Fond memories of that game and Bully's winner which is always one of my favourite Bully goals to look back on. The ecstasy when that goal went in and defeated those Bluenose scutters was immense

Mark McGhee vs Barry Fry, times!

Word for Deano still trying to create a goalscoring opportunity after being fouled rather than rolling around clutching a part of his body that hadn't been touched

We used to play "crab football" at school in the late 80s, Deano obviously did too!
