  1. Hopefully the match day author for the remainder of this year, at least, cracking win & if I'm honest, every result went our way today, even Luton beating Wigan is OK with me, as I see Wigan as a bigger threat to finish above us than Luton, well done Boro & well done George Seville, who I've never thought well of since he signed
  2. Wow & double wow, I want this, not heard this before, its absolute class, thanks for posting this, awesome UTMB - Willie Madden true legend
  3. 11th May 1985 Shrewsbury 0 Boro 2 One of Boro 's great escapes Final game of the season, Willie Maddrens 1st full season as our manager, we had slowly dragged ourselves clear of relegation & needed a point to guarantee survival 2 players sent off & 90 minutes later we were safe & able to fight another day, well safe first another 12 months when the sane venue sadky resulted in the opposite outcome
  4. Good points, agree with what you posted
  5. This day Boro flashback programme 4th December 1948 Sheffield United 1 Boro 0 Boro lost out to a single strike from Sheff Utd & we trodded off back to Teesside pointless
  6. Programme from an England U23 match at Villa Park with Willie Maddren on the front cover
  7. The late, great Willie Maddren played 340 games, 3 as sub between 1968 - 1977, scoring 21 goals He scored a goal on his full Boro debut on the last home game of the season & to date, an unbeaten home record against relegated Bury, what could go wrong Willie almost doubled his account from the same position he scored his 1st goal, a corner swung across & Willie's powerful header smashed against the crossbar & over, leaving a ball mud stain on the crossbar In his autobiography he wrote, after the summer break when he returned to preseason training the ball stain Mark was still visible on the crossbar His final Boro appearences, 3rd September 1977 way to WBA seen debuts to two players, Boro's Billy Ashcroft & WBA 's Cyril Regis A remarkable player & a true Boro legend
  8. When we were looking at a new manager & we appointed Monk I started a thread on FMTTM that Warnock is the man to take us up, he had money & the best promotion record in the championship, sadly it never happened & subquently we brought someone in, wasted millions & sacked him I've not posted about sacking any of our managers & won't start now, Woodgate is the manager who has my support, if Gibson sees fit to remove him then, IMHO, Warnock is the best option
  9. Boro flashback - This day 1994 Boro 4 Portsmouth 0 Our final season at Ayresome Park threw up a 4 goal win for the mighty Boro, with a double from Paul Wilkinson & Craig Hignett bringing both players goals tally for the season to 5 & another cleansheet in to the bargain, 17,185 were there to see the Boro win our 8th home win of the season, with only one setback to Tranmere, Boro sitting top of the league & looking good in Bryan Robsons 1st season in charge Robbo's team Alan Miller Neil Cox Chris Morris Steve Vickers Derek Whyte Robbie Mustoe Jamie Pollock Jan Fjortoft Craig Hignett Paul Wilkinson Jamie Moreno Subs John Hendrie Ben Roberts
  10. Boro flashback - This day the 26th November 1975 Hands up those who were genually excited about playing in a cup final, when given our history apart from the North Riding Senior Cup finals us Boro fans were pretty thin on the ground when cup finals come along, so this was the biggy We wern't really too bothered how many we scored to take to the second leg in December, as long as we took a lead & a lead we took, courtesy of Les Strong connecting to a Davey Armstrong cross, 1-0 to the mighty reds, to take to Craven cottage in 2 weeks time Jim Platt John Craggs Frank Spraggon Bobby Murdoch Stuey Boam Willie Maddren Peter Brine David Mills John Hickton Terry Cooper Davey Armstrong Sub - Alan Foggon, who came on for Bobby Murdoch in the 2nd half
  11. This day back in 1973 - My favourite season as a Boro fan We travelled to Notts County to who were sitting in 7th position in the 2nd division with one home defeat so far, the mighty Boro are yet to taste defeat in the league on their travels Boro made 2 changes from the previous weeks win over Cardiff, Peter Brine, replacing Alan Foggon for his 1st game of the season & Bobby Murdoch coming back in the team at the expense of Eric McMordie, which proved to be Eric's final start for the Boro It was a hard fought 1st half as we went in 2 goal down through CF Les Bradd & ex Boro player Don Mason, once in the changing room & a few swift words from big Jack the Boro came back out for the 2nd half & took the game to Notts County, Boro drew level with goals from John Hickton & David Mills & that's how the game finished 2-2 with teams sharing the points Big Jacks team Jim Platt John Craggs Frank Spraggon Graeme Souness Stuey Boam Willie Maddren Bobby Murdoch David Mills John Hickton Peter Brine Davey Armstrong Attendance - 16,314
