Boro flashback 10th December 1988

Boro were back in the 1st division & going well, 2 home defeats so far was testament to the progress we were making as a club going forward, Bruce Rioch had us playing excellent, passing football & this game was certainly the case, he spoke in the morning papers before the game that due to the recent history of Boro v Villa games this one should have been the live match & my was he right, it certainly lived up to it

Villa went in to a 2 goal lead, Boro drew level with goals from Mark Brennan his 3rd goal of the season & Gary Hamilton with his 2nd, then, bang, Tony Mowbray scored what we thought would be the winner, from 2 nil down we are 3-2 up & looking formidable going forward, Bernie Slaven thought he had put us 4-2 up but the linesman's flag was up & the goal wrongly disallowed

We were to suffer for the linesmans error, as not long from the end Mcanally pushed Cooper out the way & shot past Stephen Pears to bring the scores level

Boro 3 Villa 3,  what a game

I'd never seen anyone as fast as Tony Daley that day! Frightening!

Boro showed so much spirit which summed up that era.

When we were on top I am sure Keown got sent off

AdiosTango, yes you are indeed correct, Martin Keown did receive his marching orders

Boro flashback - This day the 29th January 1977

Boro 4 Hereford United 0

Since the 18th January 1972, when the mighty Boro beat Man City in the 3rd round of the FAC, the visit of Hereford United to Ayresome Park was to be my 11th home & away Boro FAC match

Hereford were welcomed to Ayresome Park, without the famous Ricky George & George Radford, both who will forever go down in FAC history for their 2 goals which brought hundreds of onrushing parkers on to the pitch when, as a non league team, knocking 1st division Newcastle out of the FAC 

Now Hereford, who in 5 seasons since  joining the football league are in the 2nd division, came to the Boro hoping for the fairytale to continue

But...............                                              It was never going to be the case, I can still remember from my position dead centre of the holgate as Graeme Souness measured up to smash a thirty yarder in to the east end goal, I started to shout, don't shoot from there, gooooooaaaaaaalllllll

And from then it was Davey Armstrong with a couple, including a penalty & Alan Willey with his1st FAC goal, the Boro cruised to the 5th round 

Hereford finished bottom of the 2nd division that season

Boro flashback - This day 1986

Was to be the late, great Willie Maddrensi final match in charge of our great football club

1st February seen the mighty Boro lose 3-1 at home to Charlton, with Gary Rowell scoring our consolation goal from the penalty spot for his 10th goal of the season

Boro were without a win in the calander year while, not only collecting one point out of a possible 12 in January & knocked out of the FAC but have started February in the same run of form

IMHO, Willie never stood a chance from the beginning, the club was in a rut, we were in the lowest ebb of our entire history & it had to get worse before it improved, which was the case
He was an unlucky manager, probably & most likely, again IMHO, the right manager at the wrong time, the players WM brought in, who not only played a major part in the clubs fantastic era over the next few seasons that were to follow & when some were eventually sold brought a massive injection of cash in to the Boro's coffers, probably his most importing signing was bringing Bruce Rioch to our football club, but unfortunately Willie was to pay a price for the failure of the running of the club who thought it best to sell the clubs jewels in 1980's & replace with lesser quality players to end up at our present predicament

Ironically, future Boro manager Lennie Lawrences Charlton brought Willie's time to a final conclusion & up stepped sir Bruce to take over the helm & take us to one of the most exciting periods in our history & whoever was lucky enough to play & support the Boro through an era will never forget, or want to

Boro flashback - This day 4th February 1992

Sheff Weds 1 Boro 2

Boro's reward for the excellent victory, exactly one month previous, when coming from behind to knock out 1st division Man City 2-1 at Ayresome Park in the 3rd round was to travel to Hillsborough for this rearranged 4th round FAC tie to play another 1st division opposition in Sheff Weds

Wednesday night Cup football under the floodlights is special & this game was no exception 

John Hurst put the 1st division home team ahead 

John Hendrie equalised & then bang, the Boro Cup Kings from that excellent season, scored the 2nd from Paul Wilkinson, which turned out the winner, earning the mighty Boro an away tie at Portsmouth

Lennie Lawrence is having an excellent debut season with his Boro team going well on all fronts, in the league for automatic promotion & the 5th round of both the league Cup & FAC

Boro flashback - This day 1967, the Ayresome Angels era & John Hickton

Boro travelled to Workington on the back of an excellent run of form, 6 wins out of the last 7 have given the mighty Boro a real chance to get of fretting in amongst the division leaders

John Hickton made his debut at home to Workington, scoring the 1st of his amazing penalties as he celebrated his 22nd birthday & a Boro win

Now the reverse fixture sees the Boro triumph 2-1 with big John again on the scoresheet along with Ray Lugg

And another step towards promotion

Boro flashback - This day 7th February 1987 Boro 1 Bristol Rovers 0

Paul Kerr, our 1st cash signing after liquidation which was £50k, made his league home debut this afternoon wearing the No9 shirt & his 3rd game for the mighty Boro, which included an FAC debut in our home defeat to Preston, a 3-0 win at Bury the week previous & this day 

If it was a good day for Paul Kerr it wasn't for Brian Laws, as the game was goalless Boro were awarded a penalty at the holgate end, Lawsy took the spot kick & put the ball wide of the goal & at that moment went down clutching his knee, after medical attention in the Bristol goalmouth Brian Laws was taken from the field & replaced with sub Alan Kernaghan, Lawsy was to play no part in the remainder of the 3rd division campaigne 

The Boro were finding it hard to break down Rovers stubborn defence until Colin Cooper chased a lost cause & put the ball across for Stuart Ripley to score the only goal of the game & 3 points in the bag & 3 wins on the bounce
