I was at the Wrexham v Liverpool match ( Wrexham fan ) A one sided game really , memorable for being played on packed snow with blue pitch markings . 30,000 inside the Racecourse and some spare room in the corners . Easy to see how they got nearly 35,000 infor the Man. United game six years earlier .
