Back To The Eighties: 1980/81, Part Ten – Liverpool Back On Top… For Now

By on Oct 22, 2013 in Latest, Video | 0 comments


The first weekend of December saw Liverpool leading the First Division table on goal difference from Aston Villa, and the cameras of Granada Television were at Anfield to see the champions take on mid-table Tottenham Hotspur, who we saw yesterday morning getting beaten at home by West Bromwich Albion the week before. Our second match this morning comes from The Dell, as Lawrie McMenemy’s Southampton win by a solitary goal at home against Coventry City. By the close of business on the 6th December 1980, though, things were tight at the top of the First Division, with just five points separating Liverpool at the top of the table the then-defending European champions Nottingham Forest in eighth place in the table.
