I remember it well Jim. 86-87 season. We had a dodgy start to the season but memorable wins at Old Trafford and White Hart Lane during that time. The United game was live on a Sunday and there were a lot of empty seats but we had a solid turnout at Old Trafford as always.

Here is the link to the highlights on Youtube:

Looking at the footage I'm not sure if either was a penalty. First one looked like it should have been our free kick and second one was a 50/50 challenge. So perhaps justice was done with the saves. Enjoy anyway.

I remember that so well. We were so crap at the time too. That result came out of nowhere.

What i seem to recall most about Godden was that he had a habit of really coming and standing far out of his area when the team were attacking, often nearly up to the half way line.

Funnily enough I also stumbled across this clip of Godden playing against us for WBA almost 10 years earlier. I was at this game. Not such a great day for Chelsea as we well beaten (as with many home games that season).

He got a chorus of "Godden is a moron!" that day, a take off of the old Jilted John single.
