1980s Questions Questions

Football hooliganism projected a dark shadow over English football in the 1980’s which led to English clubs being banned from Europe following the Heysel disaster. On the pitch, Everton and Liverpool dominated English football, winning the title eight times between them. It would have been nine had Michael Thomas not scored for Arsenal in the last minute of the 1988-89 season to deny Liverpool another title, in one of the most dramatic moment’s English football has ever seen. The late 80’s also saw dark horses Wimbledon and Coventry City win FA Cup’s (1987 and 1988).
