I think Bobby said it was the best since the 30's if I heard right so not exactly recent.
He loves digging up an obscure stat doesn't he? The other one was the 'first time we've reached two cup semis in 30 odd years'. It's almost like he's researching this stuff before he goes into press conferences to defend his tenuous position, and to deflect criticism.
He's like an illusionist saying 'don't look over there, look over here, here's something shiny'.
