Boro flashback 5th March 1977

Leeds 2 Boro 1

Two firsts this day back in 77

Firstly, Alan Ramage who had made one sub appearance the final game of previous season away to Villa was handed his full debut this day 

Secondly, Alf Wood a free transfer scored his 1st goal for the Boro to put the mighty Boro one nil to the good when scoring at the Boro end, as we celebrated behind the goal someone behind nicked my Boro hat full of metal badges, fancy pinching from one of your own hey 

With thoughts of Boro pulling off another victory at Leeds following last seasons 2-0 win, up stepped Gordon McQueen the towering Leeds Centre half who pulled the game out of the bag bagging 2 goals, the Boro had grabbed defeat from the Jaws of victory

Boro flashback - This day back in 76

Boro travelled to Anfield on the 6th March to face Liverpool, who had been on their European travels in midweek on their quest in the European Cup 

Boro's last away game seen big John bag 2 goals as the mighty Boro ran out 2-0 winners at Leeds, two tough away games on the bounce, one down, one to go

The Liverpool game followed the same as Leeds with the Boro again running out 2-0 winners, though this time we seen Terry Cooper score his one & only Boro goal, on his 47th appearance & a goal from ever reliable iconic legend John Hickton, with his 12th goal of the season

Boro flashback - This day the 9th March 1974

My favourite season ever seen the mighty Boro win their 6th double of the season when beating Millwall 2-1at Ayresome Park with goals from David Mills scoring his 9th goal of the season & Frank Spraggon with his 1st goal for 2 years, since the 15th April 1972

This was our 4th win on the bounce, which we have achieved a number of times during the the 70's

Boro flashback - This day 1979

Boro 2 Villa 0

After our midweek home defeat to Everton Jim Platt was brought back in to the 1st team for his 1st game of the signing, summer signing Jim Stewart had started the season as No1 but, normal service was resumed & Jim Platt was brought back in from the cold

with only one win in 8 games & one this calander year Boro had to start getting results or will need to look over their shoulder at the other end of the season

Our last home win was a7-2 thumping of Chelsea back in the middle of December, far too long to go without a win, add to that Micky Burns hasnt scored since bagging 4 v Chelsea

This day 1979 two things went for the Boro, we won at home 2-0 & Micjky Burns was back on the scoresheet with his 10th goal of the season, Mark Proctor doubled Boro's lead to take his goal tally of the season to 4 & the 2 points remained on Teesside with the crowd of 16,558,  500 up on the midweek home defeat

Boro flashback - 23 years ago today Boro created history 

Boro 0 Stockport 1

League Cup semi final 2nd leg at the Riverside, typical Boro leading Stockport 2-0 from the away 1st leg lost the 2nd leg at the Riverside 1-0 with a County goal after only 6 minutes & with it 29k Boro fans biting their finger nails till the ref blew the full time

The ref blew the final whistle & the Boro were at Wembley 

I remember being in the yelliw rose after the game & with losing it felt strange, didn't feel as though we had something to celebrate, a typical Boro moment indeed

Boro flashback 1987

Walsall 1 Boro 0

This day the 14th March Boro lost that last ever 3rd division match away at Fellows Park

This defeat, which was Boro's 3rd in 4 games was the worry are the mighty Boro starting to wobble at the wrong time

Just remember we had stated the season without any friendly matches, infact we just before the season started we didn't know if we had a football team, but a football team we had thankfully, who started the season like an express team beating all before & going unbeaten till October, the Walsall defeat had Bruce Rioch coming out with the following statement 

We started the season going 12 games unbeaten, let's finish the season one better & stay unbeaten in the remaining 13 games

One memory I have of this fixture is before kick off seeing Ronnie Coyle & a few other fringe players eating fish & chips from a chippie outside the ground

Boro flashback - This day 1995

Robbo & the mighty Boro were well & truly feeling the pressure of PL football 

We had lost 8 games on the bounce from the 26th December when on the 24th February & the return of long time absentee Robbie Mustoe, we stopped the rot with a hard earned 0-0 draw at Coventry

Robbo, wrongfully, thought we had turned the corner, but 2 further games & 2  losses seen us at the stage 10 games without a victory & up next, Nottm Forest, a team we have failed to beat since 1973, we had not gained a single home point this calander year, no points on home soil since beating West Ham 4-2 on the 23rd December 

Again, Boro were grateful for the services of Robbie Mustoe & what a time to score your 1st PL goal of the season, when just before the hour mark, he scored Boro's equaliser a minute after Forest had taken the lead

The vast majority of the excellent crowd of 29,382 finally seen us get a point on the board in 1995

That run was a bit deflating after the start we'd made.  Was it Leeds or Sheff Wed we eventually beat to end it?  Leeds away?  Sheff Wed at home around Easter time I think?  That one was a TV game and Freestone, who was hoped to be the next big thing 🤨, scored a goal if I remember rightly.

Good memory, we beat em both within a week, Leeds 1st 👍

Yeah, I listened to that game on the radio.  I want to say that Leeds had a man sent off and Lucas Radebe ended up in goal for them as well?  We still could only manage a 1-0 win with a penalty though lol?  That's if it's that game and I'm not remembering another one in it's place.

    • 6 of our first team squad are straight from the academy, given there are only 23 players in it, that's not bad. You could arguably count Spence and Wing too, though I wouldn't.
    • An Oxo cube in hot water plus cayenne pepper fixes anything
    • I guess our academy isn't all that great after all. Maybe I'm just naive but I thought one of the main reasons for having an academy was to produce players that could break into the first team. Now obviously, like any recruitment / training process, not EVERYONE is going to make it, but I'd have thought we'd be seeing a few more making the step up to the senior squad.
    • Excuse me sir, I am not Welsh and I am contacting my lawyers right at this very moment to sue for slander!!
    • Anyone remember that rapid youth group striker who performed at ridiculous levels for england youth groups up to 17s even forcing his way into Karanka's thoughts at one point? Bradley Fewster. He's currently semi pro at Whitby Town 4 years later, I've said over the past 12 months that Walker is at a critical stage where he'll either absolutely shine out on loan or he'll end up following Fewsters footsteps. Reality of his situation is, whether you think Warnock will 'need' him or not, this is probably the most important season of his career it will determine what level he will be playing at in 4 years time because the youth strikers we have coming through look really good and keeping Ste Walker around an extra season taking up a spot in the 23s if he has a poor season is not something I imagine the club will do. It's like Chapman and Mondal they looked absolute livewires in the UEFA youth league in 16/17 fast forward a few years Junior's spent most of his time in non league and Chapman's spent most of his time sitting in stands or on his couch. This isn't talking down our youngsters it's just the harsh realities of the transition from youth football to senior and from evidence available Walker might have enough there or he might not but 5 sub appearances for us this season wont give us the answers we/him need for his career so sending him out made complete sense for all parties.
