    21st May 1990

    Probably the greatest football song ever released World In Motion was released by England/New Order as England's song for the 1990 World Cup. Who can forget John Barnes's "rap" in the middle of it?

    Doesn't seem like 19 yeas ago.

    I've got that twice, once on New Order's greatest hits & on a best football songs CD.

    During the summer of 1990 I used to always stagger home from the nightclub singing that song at the top of my voice. Oh memories

    22nd May 1981

    Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe jailed for life for 13 murders between 1976 and 1981.

    I really remember the hunt for him due to the north east connection with hoax I'm Jack letters and tapes. He was caught due to false numberplates on his car, a stroke of luck and good policing. He had been questioned several times during the hunt and released.

    This is a very good site for background info on the case.

    26th May 1989

    Arsenal pip Liverpool to the league title, needing to win by two goals they got their 2nd in the last minute for a 2 - 0 win.

    It was also the day I left school, with a leavers ball that night it meant I missed the match but got regular updates during the evening.
