Boro flashback, this day the 20th March 1982

QPR arrived Ayresome Park already being victorious on Teesside earlier in the year when knocking Boro out of the in an FAC 3-0 in a 3rd round replay 

Boro with one solitary win this calander year after beating WBA in our previous home fame, the mighty Boro were hoping to make it 2 home wins on the bounce & 2 out of 11 games in 1982

Unfirtuantly Paul Goddard had put West Ham in a 2-0 lead when Tony McAndrew then converted a penalty to reduce the arrears with his 3rd penalty of the season & 3rd goal of the season & Billy Ashcroft brought the scores level with his 3rd goal of the season, with time running out & a point would be seen as a good point in the fight against relegation Boro put their guard down & QPR scored a 3rd & winning goal

March match days back in the not to distant past

Thought I would put together a comblination of past Boro matches from Ayresome Park era from the month of March

March 1st 1975 Seen the Boro start off the month in great fashion with a 2-0 home win over Stoke in front of 25,766 with goals from John Hickton, with his 9th goal of the season & Alan Foggon, with his 12th goal of the campaign, this was Boro's 1st win of the year

March 2nd 1974 seen the mighty Boro travel to local rivals Sunderland in this 2nd divison fixture, Boro were running away with the league but with local pride at stake Sunderland were hoping to upset the Boro & inflict only our 2nd away defeat, after a draw & 2 victories since Forest thrashed us the Boro were determined that if we were to lose the opposing team would have to be on top of their game, Sunderland who tried to intimidate & bully the Boro were toitally outclassed with the Boro running out 2-0 winners with goals from David Mills & Alan Foggon, Denis Tuart & Mark Hughes received their marching orders, as the home team lacked disipline as well as skill 

March 3rd 1979 A 3-1 victory at Wolves brought our 1st victory since thrashing Chelsea 7-2 in the middle of december & our 1st away victory since 27th October when we won 2-0 at Villa, goal by Billy Ashcrofts 3rd of the season, Tony McAndrew & David Shearer each scoring their 1st goals of the season

March 4th 1986 The birth of Bruce Riochs legends, the home match v Grimsby was Bruces 1st in charge after the late, great Willie Maddren short management career was brought to a halt, the Boro ran out 3-1 winners with a Bernie scoring his 1st Boro brace & a Mogga goal brought much needed points in our 'unsuccessful' fight against the drop, a crowd of 4,412 seen the mighty Boro brush aside Grimsby & start off Riochs reign with the perfect start possible

March 5th 1983 This particular game away to QPR seen the Boro on our screens on saturday night when the MOTD camera were at Loftus Road to see us well beaten away to the tune of 6-1, this game stands out for the reason due to the weather the schedualed televised games were cancelled & with Shepards Bush close to Loftus Road & the pathetic plastic pitch the cameras were rushed to their ground, Boro had only taken their sponsored shirts & were unable to wear them due to no sponsored shirts to be worn during televised games & the boro had to settle for QPR's training tops, the late Mick Kennedy getting our goal from the penalty spot

March 6th 1976  Terry Cooper scored his one & only goal for the Boro in this fixture along with John Hickton scoring his 8th of the campaigne as the mighty Boro ran out 2-0 winers at Anfield

March 7th 1995 Robbie Mustoe scored a spectacular goal as the Boro ran out 2-0 winners over a lacklustre Watford in Robbo's 1st season as manager of the Boro who were chasing promotion to the PL, Uwe Fuchs was also on the scoresheet grabbing his 6th goal since his loan signing that IMHO, kick started the Boro's season

March 8th 1986 Bruce Riochs honeymoon period came to a sudden halt as the Boro went to Palace looking to continue were they left off at home to Grimsby only a few days earlier, though Bernie scored again for Bruce's team Palace scored twice to run out 2-1 winners, this game seen legend Colin Cooper make his Boro debut when Bruce handed Cooper the No12 & in the 2nd half he replaced Don O'Riordan

March 9th 1974 David Mills bagged his 9th goal of the campaigne & Frank Spraggon scored his 1st goal of the season, his 3rd & last goal of his career as the boro beta Millwall 2-1 in thisn 2nd divison fixture, our 4th win on the bounce

March 10th 1979 Seen the return between the sticks for Jim Platts 1st game of the season at home to Villa, 16,558 were at the game to see Mark Proctor score his 4th of the season & the excellent signing Micky Burns getting his 10th of the campaigne as the Boro ran out 2-0 winners & our 1st home win since the 16th december when beating Chelsea 7-2

March 11th 1922 We've dug a bit deeper for this one with the Boro runbning out 5-1 winners with a cracking home win over Huddersfield Town, infront of 26,000 fans goals by prolific striker Andrew Wilson  grabbing as brace & taking his tally to 21 goals, George Elliott also grabbing a brace for his 7th of the campaige & Tommy Urwin with his 4th of the season

March 12th 1991 Quite a few I could choose on this day but I have to go for a resounding 3-0 thrashing of Newcastle at Ayresome Park, with goals from Colin Walsh, Boro's loan signing from Charlton & a brace for Bernie, an attendance of 18,250 seen Ian Arnold given the No14 shirt, the 1st of being named as sub twice that season 

March 13th 1979 Seen the Boro thrash Derby 3-1 at Ayresome Park, with goals from 6 foot 2 eyes of blue Stuey Boam is after you with his only goal of the season, Davey Armstrong  & Micky Burns

March 14th 1987 The reason I choose this game & result is for the only reason it was the last time we ever lost a fixture as a 3rd divison team wehn losing 1-0 at Walsall, after this defeat Bruce came out with the speech, we went unbeaten in the first 11 games of the season, lets gop one better with 12 games remaining & we did 

March 15th 1975 The mighty Boro thumped Spurs 3-0 with Souness grabbing 2 against his former team with iconic legend John Hickton getting a goal, an attendance of 25,637 seen Terry Cooper make the 1st of his 123 appearences following his transfer from Leeds & what a signing 

March 16th 1974 WBA O Boro 4, Boro's 5th consecutive win, the Boro were now alomost impossible to stop with goals from Alan Foggon with his 12th of the season, 2 from big John, one being a penalty & Souness with his 1st Boro away goal

March 17th 1979 Bosco Jankovic was given the No12 shirt by manager John Neal to start his Boro career away to Bristol City in a 1-1 draw with ever relaible Davey Armstrong scoring his  9th goal of the season, Bosco cam,e on for Micky Burns to make his Boro debut

March 18th 1986 Again, a few games to chose from, this fixture was a 2-1 home defeat to Sheffield United, in front of 5,736 fans, though we lost the game with Don O'Riordan scoring the 2nd & last of his 2 goals for the Boro, it was the manner of the performance I remember about the game, the Boro dominated this fixture, played excellent, fast football but as what always happens when at the wrong end of the table things dont always go your way & IIRC a local lad called Keith Edwards was on target for United, the Boro board were that impressed with, not only the Boro on the night, but the transformation Bruce had implemented that they offered his the title as Boro manager, as opposed to temperaray manager, thankfully Bruce accepted their offer

March 19th 1974 Fulham 0 Boro 4 Two big, big 4-0 drubbings for the home teams within a few days, this time in London with all the local media flocking to Craven Cottga eco witness Bobby Moores debut following his transfer from West Ham, my mate who attended the match keeps telling me 'Fulham were lucky to get zero' we were that dominant, dont think the media were too happy with a northern team spoiling their party with goals from legend John Hickton, an OG, Davey Armstrong & Graeme Souness

March 20th 1991 away to Millwall, Paul Kerr, Boro's 1st cash signing after liquidation when Boro paid £50k, played his final away game for the Boro, named as No12, with the Boro 2-0 down Kerr was brought on for Colin Walsh, he scored his final Boro goal to bring us back in to the game & then set up the equaliser for Tony Mowbray as the Boro fought back to draw the game 2-2

March 21st 1987 Archie Stephens scored a beauty diving header as Boro ran out 1-0 winners at Blackpool 

March 22nd Our last victory away at Chelsea when the Boro ran out 2-1 winners, with goals from John Craggs his 1st top flight goal & Alan Willey his 1st top flight away Boro goal, Terry Cooper on his 3rd appearence received his marching orders

March 23rd Boro 1 Oxford 0, Davey Armstrong scored the only goal of the game & after an absence of 20 years Boro were promoted to the top flight

March 24th 1973 Boro drew 1-1 at home to Aston Villa with a goal from ever reliable John Hickton, the reason I chose this game was that of Davey Armstrongs started this game & started his incredible run 356 consecutive games from 24th March 1973 to September 6th 1980, quite remarkable 

March 25th 1990 Our 1st ever visit to the twin towers as a football club when we played Chelsea in the final of the Zenith data systems final, though we lost, something I & thousands of Boro fans thought we would never see, a Boro team walking on to the wembley turf, our fans were magnificent

March 26th 1983 Boro 3 Charlton 0, another season of struggle & low crowds, this was our biggest big win of the season with a brace from centre half Mick Baxter & a goal from wonder kid Stephen Bell

March 27th 1989 Two home debuts, one being a 2nd home debut as Mark Barham & Mark Proctor were introduced to the crowd before kickoff playing their 2nd Boro game after playing the previous week away to Wimbledon, Everton were the visitors in a topsy turvy encounter, we took the lead with a Bernie goal, Everton hit back & then took the lead, Gary Parkinson levelelled thescores at 2-2 when scoring from the spot, Everton retook the lead only for Pater Davenport to bring the game level & thats how it stayed 3-3

March 28th 1987 Not too many to choose from on this day but I went for one of my favourite seasons when Rotherham were the vistors to Ayreome Park , with an impressive attendance of 9,569 the game or the Boro never got going as the match finished 0-0

March 29th 1986 A great away performance at Hudderfield Bruce's team winning 3-0 to try & get the points to claw ourselves away from the foot of the 2nd divioisn, a brace from Gary Hamilton & another Bernie strike seen us comfortable winners

March 30th 1974 the mighty Boro traveleld to Kenilworth Road to face our nearest challenges Luton Town, after guarenteeing promotion the previous saturday & after a 20 year wait, we are back in the 1st divison, when Dave Armstrong scored the only goal of the game with a 1-0 win at home to Oxford, now we stand 90 minutes away from securing the 2nd divison championship with 6 games remaining, though TBH, we were a team in waiting after beating Bristol City back in September the 29thThousands travlled down to see the mighty Boro clinch the championship, a soccer special was put on with all carriages full as it departed Middlesbrough station David Mills scored the only goal of the game, Boro were champions & going up in style Great days indeed & very fortunate & privileged to be old enough to appreciate that team

March 31st 1984 End the month on a good Boro win in a 5 goal thriller when beating Oldham 3-2 at Ayreome Park infront of 5,615 fansgoals by Stephen Bell, Paul Sugrue & talisman Heien Otto seen us clinch our 7th home win & our 1st win since 11th february & 3 points to help us successfully acheive safety at the end of the season for Malcolm Allisons team 

Hope you enjoyed down memory lane for the Boro, I certainly enjoyed remanicing & for a while forgetting about whats happening at the moment

Please stay safe

I saw this on Facebook about former player Craig Johnston which I thought was a decent read. I have always been aware of him but other then the odd video clip and that he designed the predator football boot the knowledge of him is pretty limited. But seems like a great role model to any youngster wanting to succeed.

What began as a routine day trip into the city centre, a jaunt that included skateboarding, window shopping and a visit to a red light cinema, would change Craig Johnston's life forever. After going to see the movie "The Giants of Brazil" a film based on the 1970 World Cup Winners by mistake, the then 12 year old Johnston decided that he wanted to become a footballer "like Pele". Johnston was was born in Johannesburg on 25th June, 1960. As a child, his family relocated to New South Wales. At the age of six, Johnston almost lost a leg due Osteomyelitis (infection of the bone), his mother had even signed an amputation order. By good fortune, an American specialist, Dr Glass was in the country lecturing. Johnston's case was brought to his attention and Dr Glass performed a procedure that ultimately saved Johnston's leg.

Moving forward to 1975, while watching the television, Johnston saw Jack Charlton's Middlesbrough on a pre- season tour in Australia. Johnston decided to write to the club and ask for a trial, he also wrote to the two Manchester clubs but never recieved a reply. Within weeks, the surfer recieved a reply from Middlesbrough's World Cup winning coach Harold Shepardson, inviting him to England to train with the club. His parents remortged the family home for his adventure to be realised on the condition that Johnston's school grades would not suffer, which they didn't. The fact that Johnston's father had trials with Preston North End made Johnston's plight possibly, somewhat, easier, while his mother had dreams of her son becoming a school teacher.

Arriving at Middlesbrough, the then 16 year old was thrust straight into a trialist match against Charlton's former team, Leeds United. At half time, with his team trailing 3-0, Boro boss Jack Charlton burst into the dressing room to tell Johnston he was the "worst player he had ever seen" and to "f- - k off back to Australia". A devastated Johnston kept up the charade to his family that Charlton loved him and all was well, in his eyes, there was no way that he could return to Australia as a failure. After hearing of Johnston's plight, first team players Greame Souness and Terry Cooper told the youngster to stick around and arranged for him to clean the players boots and wash their cars. For the next eighteen months, Johnston cleaned cars and dodged Charlton in the car park next to Ayresome Park. His practice of training by himself would become a local sight with chalk drawn goals and targets on walls, Johnston would train for six to eight hours per day to develop his technique and not stop until he had completed his brutal training regime.

By May 1977, Charlton had moved on, the new manager John Neal was soon asking who the kid in the car park was, "That's the Kangaroo" he was promptly told. After being unable to fill a reserve team line up due to injuries, Johnston was told to sit on the bench to make up the numbers. When he came on for the second half, he promptly scored a hat-trick and was signed up straight away, he would earn £8 per week. Within eight months of Charlton's departure, and after two years of training in the car park and playing with the local kids on Middlesbrough's cobbled streets, the 17 year old Johnston finally made his full debut in the 3-2 victory over Everton at Ayresome Park in front of 33,652 in the their 4th Round FA Cup clash on 28th January 1978. He would make his League debut at St Andrews a week later. In total, from 1978 to 1981, Johnston would make 66 appearances scoring 16 goals for Middlesbrough.

For the second time, Greame Souness would play a signicant hand in Johnston's career. It would be Souness who would recommend Johnston to Liverpool manager Bob Paisley. In April 1981, the 20 year old Johnston would become Liverpool's record signing at the time, commanding a £650,000 transfer fee. He would go on to make 271 appearances while returning 40 goals and ammasing 10 trophies. Only days prior leading up to the 1988 FA Cup Final, the 27 year old Johnston would inform his manager that the FA Cup Final would be his final game for the club. Initially, he incurred the wrath Kenny Dalglish, but when Dalglish found out the reason - Johnston wanted to provide the 24 hour care his ill sister required, Dalglish gave his blessing. Going for a hat-trick of interventions on Johnston's behalf, in 1991 Greame Souness would attempt to play a further signicant hand in Johnston's career when the newly appointed Liverpool manager appached Johnston to train with the the team with a view of coming out of retirement, as he was still registered to Liverpool, but to no avail.

For some inexplicable reason, Johnston would never represent a country at full international level. The closest he came was two under 21 appearances for England during the 1980/81 season. Due to Johnston's father who was Scottish, Scotland manger Jock Stein made enquiries in the early 1980s. I believe he had some falling out with the Australian Football Federation for not supporting him enough in the formative years of his career, otherwise I'm sure he would've been the first name on the team sheet.

Brilliant story, I didn't know half of that

Yes, great player for us, I have on a small cassette tape an interview he done many years ago when he said he didn't want to leave & the chairman wanted him out for the money, there coukd be some truth in that but one thing is certain he played in a very, very good, exciting young Boro team that should have achieved something 

John Neal was a good manager who, usually, bought well & if he had brought in a top quality C H to replace Stuey Boam then maybe we would have won something, though the gypsies curse would always make sure we didnt

Thanks for that, Up the Boro 

Take care & stay safe
