The Wolves captain Emlyn Hughes had tasted every type of club football success during his time at Liverpool but the League Cup was the one trophy that had eluded him. Here he celebrates in style by drinking Champagne directly from the League Cup itself. The bubbly stuff is courtesy of ATV's Gary Newbon who predicted Wolves would be beaten by Nottingham Forest. Goal scorer Andy Gray still can't believe it but like all home-comings this is a day for the fans.
