Interesting article here http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/feb/05/the-knowledge-jimmy-hill-two-points about how many title outcomes would have been different had Jimmy Hill not forced through three points for a win in 1981. Surprisingly few would have been any different under two points for a win - in fact, only three. Man United would have won the 1994-95 Premier League instead of Blackburn. Southampton would have won the 2011-12 Championship instead of Reading. And Birmingham would have won Div Three in 1991-92 instead of us! After the events of 1958, 1995, 2001 and last season (plus numerous cup final and play off defeats), I always thought we had a more than decent claim to be unluckiest club ever, but it's nice to know we sometimes had the footballing gods on our side.
