Everton 5 – 0 Aston Villa


It’s well documented that the 1980s were the glory years for Everton, with league titles, domestic cup final appearances and European silverware. But at this point in time the Villa were European champions, having seen off Bayern Munich earlier in the year. In fact, given the dominance of English teams in Europe at the time, it’s no exaggeration to suggest that either of these teams could’ve gone on to further glory on the continent. If it weren’t for the ban. Probably best not to get into that. Anyway, this game. Villa got battered. Bad day at the office for them.
