OK. I know at least one person on here will get this right away, as their team was on of those involved.
The highest aggregate of goals in a league match, 17, came in a Boxing Day fixture in what year?

That was us. We lost 13-4 to Tranmere on Boxing Day (having beaten them 4-1 the day before). Guess our players celebrated a bit too hard.

I don’t know the year though! ’50s?

Yes to the result, but it was pre-war.

Which team has experienced the most promotions and relegations in English league history?

And which team is the biggest yo-yo club in terms of moving between the top two divisions?

Pretty sure between the top two is Birmingham.

No, just between the top two divisions. Twelve times up, twelve times down. They have a couple of other moves too but the top team has gone up or down thirty times.

A clue that probably won't help: the team I'm looking for also holds the record for getting the most managers sacked (ie more managers have been sacked after a game against this team than any other).
