John 'Jackie' Carr, a member of the famous Carr brothers who all played for the Boro, made his Boro debut wearing the No8 shirt, standing in for the injured & excellent Boro goal machine George Elliott, this day the 2nd of January at home to Nottm Forest, scoring both our goals in a 2-2 

John 'Jackie'Carr went on to make 449 appearances for the mighty Boro, scoring 81 goals

FAC 3rd round  - Boro flashback 3rd January 1980

Swansea 0 Boro 5

David Armstrong missed this cup tie & his 1st missed cup tie since 5th January 1974 v Grantham, Craig Johnston was also in sidelined & the middle of a 5 game out through an injury

Swansea, who were a strong 2nd divison team under manager John Toshack challenging for promotion were the bookies favourites going in to the cup game, with the MOTD cameras ready to see an FAC upset, especially with us having a weakened team, 2 vital members of our midfield out 

This game will be remebered for a couple of reasons to those who attended & old enough

Firstly,  it seemed every time Swansea had a golden opportunity to score & wasted it we went up the field & scored

Secondly,  Terry Cochranes superb overhead kick for our 4th goal, brilliant

John Neals team, who, IMHO, should have got to the FAC final, if not won it

1st match of the new decade & could it be any bigger,  a mouth watering cup tie with one of the capitals biggest teams coming to Teesside & 3 members of the world cup winning team in their ranks, plus Clyde Best, Frank Lampard & Billy Bonds, they had a team to frighten the very best in the 1st divison

A crowd of 32,585, our biggest gate of the season & biggest since beating Oxford 4-1 in the final game of the 66/67 season

Remember that cup game well...........thought I was going to see World Cup winners give us a lesson in football and for the first quarter of an hour it looked like we were going to be slaughtered..then Hughie started to win everything against Moore  and Clyde Best seemed to drift out of game.....Maddren had Hurst in his pocket and it became increasingly obvious that we were running them ragged ............lost all respect for Moore when he started whining every time he got tackled or he got a foul given against him for pulling McIlmoyle's shirt and the episode at the end where he "applauded" ref off pitch with the real Frank Lampard and Bonds just reinforced that....don't know if he was losing his speed over time or just thought he wasn't getting decisions...but it seemed to happen every time he played us...think there was a cartoon in the Gazette showing Downing's legs sticking out of the mud and a caption to the effect that "one day we won't be able to rescue him if he keeps doing that".....think that was a team that had more spirit than skill but when Hughie had one of his good days, he was unplayable, gave the impression that he could just hang in the air and wait till the ball reached him, but my cousin said that it was just timing it right and it was something that you were born with (if you were lucky) ........never seen anyone with that ability play for us since

FAC 3rd round  - Boro flashback 4th January 1975

Fo the 2nd season running we were drawn away to non league opposition, last season it was Midland League side Grantham who were disposed of 2-0 in the 3rd round, this season it's Isthmian League team Wycombe Wanderers, who created history  when playing in the third round proper of the F.A. Cup for the first time in their history, when joint top First Division Boro travelled to Loakes Park

Big Jack made one change from the previous home game, bringing in Peter Brine for Bobby Murdoch

The game ended goaless & WW earned a big money day out at Ayresome Park

Boro flashback - FAC 3rd round

This day - 5th January 1974

Probably my favourite season following the mighty Boro

Grantham v Boro 1st time we had been drawn away against a non league team

Grantham were plying their trade in the southern premier league.                                                                                The game ended 2-0 to the Boro with goals by Mills & Armstrong, a record attendance 6,573 still to this day

Boro team:

Jim Platt

John Craggs

Frank Spraggon

Graeme Souness

Stuart Boam

Willie Maddren

Bobby Murdoch

David Mills

John Hickton

Alan Foggon

David Armstrong

sub, Peter Brine

What a strong team

Boro flashback - This day 7th January 1984

One of the great cup ties from a dark era

Boro 3 Arsenal 2

After going out to Arsenal 3-2 in a 5th round replay the previous season at Highbury after drawing 1-1 at Ayresome Park, we were again drawn at home to Arsenal & Charlie Nicholas, IIRC his 1st FAC game

The mighty Boro had beaten Arsenal's London rivals Chelsea 2-1 a few days before in a 2nd division clash & were up for this 3rd cup match

Boro gained sweet revenge for last season cup exit in North London running out 3-2 winners in an exciting cup tie that had everything 

Gary MacDonald scored his 3rd of the season & 5th of his Boro career, MOTM Paul Sugrue, scored his 1st of the season & 4th for the Boro to date & a fantastic bullet header & winner from the late Mick Baxter

Boro were awarded a corner at the famous holgate end, I can still see it to this day from my position in the chicken run, Mick Baxter made his way in to the box & waited for the corner to make his move, Paul Sugrue swung in a corner from the right & Mick Baxter rose above everyone & thundered a header in the roof of the Arsenal net to score our 3rd & the winning goal, it was Micks 6th Boro career goal, his 1st of the season, he scored his 1st home goal against Arsenal in 1982 & scored his final home goal against Arsenal

For all 3 Boro players who scored this day back in 1984 it was their 1st FAC goal for the mighty Boro

I loved the shirt they wore that season

The 1st league team Robb picked was 

Alan Miller - Making debut
Neil Cox - Making debut & our 1st million signing
Curtis Fleming
Nigel Pearson - Making debut
Steve Vickers
Clayton Blackmore - Making debut

Boro flashback - 18th August 1989

Boro 4 Wolves 2

Boro started the season back in the 2nd division after a brief spell in the 1st & after, IMHO, unlucky to be relegated 

Boro gave debuts to Alan Comfort from Orient  & Trevor Putney from Norwich, 2 very exciting signing to hopefully help us achieve a swift  return to the top flight

With goals from Slaven 2, Proctor & a rare Davenport strike, with us playing exciting football with a new exciting winger in Comfort the aggressive Putney in midfield it looked good for the Boro, fingers crossed we can maintain it

    • Regarding Valdes. Are we really discussing the ability of a goalkeeper who has literally won every trophy possible and clocked up nearly 400 appearances for a team that was probably the best club side seen by an entire generation? The regular and quite ridiculous argument directed at Valdes was he had little to do for Barca such was they dominance. Do people genuinely think to be a keeper at the best club on the planet for as long as he was, that all you need to do is be able stand between two posts? Do people know how hard it is to even become a professional footballer at a half decent level never mind do it at the very elite level for as long as he did and we are discussing if he was a good keeper? Was he as good for as he was Barca? Well obviously not. But no player is going to be as good as for Boro as they would for Barca. You look better with better players around you. That is a simple fact.
    • Depends what you're using really. You shouldn't have any problems using a computer, or laptop which is by far the best option. However, if your using a phone it might not be up to the job, You need at least 4 GBs of ram for a decent stream, so if you're using a phone, it's time to upgrade.
    • Schwarzer was better for my money.  
    • I've been watching Boro a bit longer than just Pulis and Woodgate 🙂 But yeah I get what you mean, I'm sure people will enjoy being there, I'm just not that bothered about it myself.
    • Absolutely. Randolph was a great shot stopper but I also think he had his weaknesses, particularly with the ball at his feet, whether playing out from the back or in his kicking and in modern football that's quite a big thing.
