Personalised Football History Book
Every week Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles will take you on a trip down Memory Lane for your chance to win a personalised football history book.

Whether you're a die hard Liverpool supporter or a lifelong Leeds fan, we have the lowdown on all the famous league cup wins, memorable games & football stars past & present. These unforgettable moments in history are brought to you by the reporters present at the games at the time.

Each book features the winner's name on the title page and is beautifully bound in a burgundy hardback cover.

All you have to do to win is tell us 'The Year That Was?'. Here's your clue:

England may have been on the right end of a controversial refereeing decision in 1966, but this time around it was the Three Lions who were left to curse the officials over their quarter-final knock out.

Player of the tournament Diego Maradona first showed the Hand of God, then his footballing genius with a mazy dribble for the goal of the century, Argentina going on to lift the World Cup.

Golden boot winner Gary Lineker had been voted PFA and FWA Footballer of the Year for his 30 goals as Everton twice finished second to Double winners Liverpool - managed by rookie boss Kenny Dalglish.

And Lineker's scoring prowess saw him taken to Barcelona by Terry Venables, along with Mark Hughes.

England boss Bobby Robson's old club Ipswich, meanwhile, had been relegated to the Second Division.

The Year That Was - Wolves were another fallen giant, suffering their third successive relegation and beating a winding-up order on appeal. And Middlesbrough were also in dire financial straits, locked out of Ayresome Park until their rescue by Steve Gibson.

Wimbledon, though, were a club on the up, promoted to the top flight just nine years after they entered the football league. And Manchester United began a new era in November when Ron Atkinson was sacked and replaced by Alex Ferguson. Crazy times lay ahead...

Q: What was the year?
A: 1986
