Sport naturally lends itself to the what if moment. Many a time I have been caught in a daze, going over and over sporting incidents in my head, such as Bergkamp's last minute penalty at Villa Park in 1999, or Henry's chance at 1-0 in the Champions League final of 2006. What if? Two small words, with huge meaning.
So this week I have decided to list a few of the what if moments from sport in the 1980s. This isn't a definitive list, they were simply the first ideas that popped into my middle-aged head. This could well turn out to be an interesting repeat series in future blogs, hopefully more Coronation Street than Eldorado.
What if Manchester United had sacked Alex Ferguson?
