When was the last time we had a +35 goal difference?

1957-58. Goal difference was 40 (112-72) and we finished 6th in Div3 with 76 points (allowing for change from 2 pts for a win to 3 since then) - W22 D10 L14

 

Best ever goal difference was +47 (68-21) when we won the Div 3 South (1921-22)

Should be able to beat the 1958 record this season then!

When was the last time we scored 5 goals in 3 games in one season.

 

 

there were many seasons during the late 50's and early 60's (mainly due to Reeves and O'Brien) but I really loved 1963-64...

we scored 5 against ; Bury and Swindon and 6 v. Charlton, Grimsby Derby and Rotherham and 7 against S****horpe

 

1964-65 was good too, 5-2 v.Charlton (h) 6-1 Rotherham (h) again 5-0 Plymouth (h)

 

Promotion season 1965-66 was even better;

5-2 v Preston(h) 5-3 Cardiff (a) 5-1 Bolton (h) 5-2 Portsmouth (a)

but also... 6-2 Bury (h) and 9-3 Wolves (h)

 

but since the first promotion perhaps only--- 30 years ago....

 

1979-80 5-2 v Spurs 5-1 Brighton 5-2 v Bris. City all home games

 

However, one good question is ;

in which match did Saints score 5 goals... and still failed to win ...?

Coventry home in early 80s. 5-5! Great game. I remember Bally making a mistake to give them a two goal lead and then straight from the kick-off he went through and crashed one in the corner. Keith Cassells scored twice I think. And afterwards Danny Wallace was in a rage in the dressing room, throwing his boots about because he thought we'd lost!
