I remember that. The pylon was in the middle of the away end and all the Reds cheered when he climbed to the top. The stewards were waiting for him when he came down but were 'distracted' by other reds to enable him to get away with it.

Doesn't get much better than that as far as first games go pal.
There used to be a group of 6 of us that went week in week out.
3 lads missed this game as they'd rather go trick and treating.
One of those is dead, one is in prison and the other one never goes anymore and spends his weekends watching Salford RLFC. Makes you think.

Hughes was not at their level but was strong as an ox, a real big game player, a scored some absolute beauty's.

Davenport himself did not have a bad start to the 1986–87 season, but United's performances in the league were some of their worst since relegation in the 1973–74 season. By the beginning of November, Davenport had scored five goals in the league and another goal in the Football League Cup, but United were second from bottom in the league and battling against relegation when just months earlier they had been title contenders. Davenport scored his seventh goal of the season on 4 November 1986, but it came as United were thrashed 4–1 by Southampton in the fourth round replay of the League Cup. Ron Atkinson was then sacked and replaced by Alex Ferguson.
Ferguson was intent on building a new side, but there were few changes to the line-up while the 1986–87 season wore on and Davenport was undoubtedly one of the best players in the side that season. In December, he scored twice in successive 3–3 draws with title challengers Tottenham Hotspur and fellow strugglers Aston Villa. On 20 April 1987 he scored the only goal in a 1–0 home win over deadly rivals Liverpool which helped end Liverpool's defence of the league title, which was won by Everton. By now, United's relegation worries had long gone and they finished a healthy 11th in the final table. Davenport finished the season as United's top goalscorer with 16 goals (14 in the league and two in the League Cup) and for the 1987–88 season he would have a new strike partner in the shape of Brian McClair following the departure of Frank Stapleton.
Evidence riccers, bow to the evidence.

Though wasn't said 1-0 against Liverpool actually at Anfield?

(it might even have been our only away league win that season, incredibly)
