But on the assumption that the result of each match would have remained the same regardless of the incentive of the extra point, then the only title race that would have gone "the other way" in the last 40 years would have been 1994-95, when 2 points (not 3) for a win would have seen United win the title on goal difference from Blackburn. QPR would have finished level on points with Liverpool in 1976 with 3 points for a win (not one point behind) but would still have lost the title on goal difference.
Ahem.

1976/77 Final Table:

1. Derby 53
2. Liverpool 51 (Goal average .5384)
3. Ipswich 51 (Goal average .5000)

Under three points for a win:

1. Ipswich 74 (Goal average .5000) (GD +22)
2. Derby 74 (Goal average .3673) (GD +18
3. Liverpool 71

1974/75, but yes, you're right. And Bobby Robson would almost certainly have been made England manager in 1977, not 1982 ...
