  1. Boro flashback 26th October 1994 Our final season at Ayresome Park when Robbo was driving us towards promotion to the PL on this day we travelled to Villa Park for a league cup 3rd round fixture, after disposing of Scarborough 8-2 over two legs with both games finishing 4-1 in the previous round we travelled to Villa Park full of confidence to spring a suprise against a Villa side who were struggling at home with only one home win to date 19,254 were at the game to see a future Boro player, Andy Townsend, score the only goal of the game in the 30th minute as Boro huffed & puffed but fell short of causing an upset against our PL opponents & our league cup adventure dispearered for another season
  2. This day 1970 Boro flashback when 2nd divison mighty Boro travelled away to 1st division London giants Chelsea in the league 3rd round fixture With goals scored by John Hickton, his 6th league Cup goal & Gordon Joneswith his 1st league Cup goal, unfortunately Chelsea scored 3 & we were out Stan Andersons team Willie Whigham Willie Maddren Gordon Jones George Smith Bill Gates Frank Spraggon Derek Downing Eric McMordie Hugh Mcllmoyle John Hickton Joe Laidlaw

Bobby Murdochs team Jim Platt John Craggs Joe Bolton Bobby Thomson Mick Baxter Tony McAndrew Terry Cochrane Heine Otto Billy Woof Dave Shearer Billy Askew Sub Billy Ashcroft
  4. The return of Tony McAandrew & the 1st game without the talented youngster Darren Wood following his transfer to Chelsea Chelsea wanted to sign Darren Wood from the Boro, Willie Maddren was reluctant to sell the talented youngster, who was a main part of the managers plans, Boro needed the money so WM said he wanted Tony Mac as part of the transfer deal, a transfer was agreed of Β£72k & the return of one of our best utility players was pushed through 29th September 1984 seen the mighty Boro, without a win in the 1st 6 games of the season at home to Cardiff, with new signing Tony McAndrew, wearing the No6 shirt & a Boro player for the 1st time since his 18th May 1982, making his 2nd Boro debut His presence made an immediate impact as the Boro, playing in front of 4,259, IIRC, our lowest crowd at Ayresome Park, ran out 3-2 winners with Dave Currie scoring a brace, taking his tally to the season to 4 & a David Mills strike with his 4th goal of the season too Willie Maddrens team Kelham O'Hanlon Gary Gill Paul Ward Mick Buckley Tony Mowbray Tony McAndrew Alan Roberts David Mills Heine Otto Dave Currie Stephen Bell Sub Gary Hamilton

    80s classic

    Given to my late brother when in hospital in 86, 6 Boro players had gone to the General hospital to visit my brother who was involved in a awful works accident I had wrote to the football club when my brother was hospitalised & Bruce was just appointed, the 1st think he did was read my letter, call for Mogga & a number of players to visit my brother, I would like to think it was the 1st time Bruce Rioch picked his team The shirt was given to my brother by Mogga, who gave it to me πŸ‘
  7. Boro flashback & a day many of us who are old enough to remember thought this day would not happen, the mighty Boro were playing 'our' 1st real home game after coming through the awful summer of 1986 when the whole future of our fantastic football club was in the balance, yes we played Port Vale in the opening fixture of the season at home ( Hartlepool) The day the 6th September 1986, when an attendance at Ayresome Park of 6,499 seen the Boro defeat Bury by 3 goals to one, with a brace from Archie Stephens & a Bernie strike Two win out of the 1st 3 games is good in anyone's book, but when you take in to account we'd had no practise matches, friendlies, or a ground to train on, then it showed the spirit, togetherness, the desire & the skill within the team, in what was to be an unforgettable season Bruce's historic team Stephen Pears Brian Laws Colin Cooper Tony Mowbray Gary Parkinson - Ayresome Park debut Gary Pallister Bernie Slaven Archie Stephens Gary Hamilton Gary Gill Stuart Ripley Sub Lee Turnbull
  8. Boro flashback This day 6th September 1983 Boro's 2nd home game of the season & 2nd on the bounce at home after drawing with Leeds at Ayresome Park on the previous Saturday with 2 goals from Dave Currie, Newcastle were the visitors for this Tuesday night fixture, they had some big names for this fixture & a certain David Mills, who they had just signed from Sheff Weds Dave Currie carried on where he left off with another double including an opening goal, top drawer cracker We scored, they equalised, we scored, Millsy equalised then 17 years old Gary Hamilton came on as sub & with the game in the final minutes he smashed the winner in to the holgate net, 3-2 to the mighty Boro, racing over towards the chicken run where we were stood, arm raised in the air in triumph, a legend was born I don't think we lost when Gary Hamilton scored for the Boro Boro team Kelham O'Hanlon Darren Wood Paul Ward Heine Otto Mick Baxter Irving Nattrass Alan Roberts Mick Kennedy Dave Currie Paul Sugrue Gary Macdonald Sub Gary Hamilton, replacing the iconic Heine Otto

    I do love that shirt, not a lot of fans for likable Boro shirts think so mind, just something about it that I love
  10. I think it's fantastic, a lad from out of the area with no connections to the area, yet shows such passion & love for the Boro Keep it up Yusuf πŸ‘
  11. Videoed the Riverside from the storage tanks right up to the opening fixture v Chelsea, took my camcorder to the game tooπŸ‘ Favourite game - Has to be the Chelsea game for the simple fact is was a new beginning for the mighty Boro, been going to AP since 1971 this was space age stuff Seen history made twice v Everton Once when beating them 1-0, via a Festa goal, which was the 1st time we had won on New Years Day since beating Huddersfield at AP in 1958 & 1st time in my lifetime Secondly, beating Everton 3-0 in an FAC QF & reaching the FAC SF πŸ‘

  13. Boro flashback This day 27th August 1977 Boro 2 Newcastle 0 Big Jack had left & replaced by a gentle, talking geordie who had successfully managed a 3rd division outfit & managed em well, taking them in to europe We shouldn't have had any doubts about John Neal, I loved his term as manager, an excellent Boro manager, who completely changed the way we played as we became a very good, young exciting & attacking team, who at home scored loads of goals, our away record, the way we set ourselves up, should have been altered, which, IMHO, would have had us challenging the best teams in the then 1st division 27th August Boro legend Willie Maddren played his last game at Ayresome Park with a 2-0 win against Newcastle, Tommy Craig had a penalty saved by Jim Platt, Davey Armstrong scoring both Boros goals that day, we even had a dog on the pitch, which was caught & taken off down the tunnel by Tony Mac, the Boro team that day: Jim Platt John Craggs Terry Cooper Peter Brine Stuey Boam Willie Maddren John Mahoney David Mills. Billy Woof Ton McAndrew David Armstrong Sub, John Hickton GS: Davey Armstrong 2 Att: 26,902, including me & our Kev in the holgate end, plus a dog running on the pitch RIP Joh Neal your time with us was brilliant
