just looked at the goalscorers in the other games on the 1971 clipping...some talented players there...Don Rogers, Tony Green, Derek Possee, Gerry Francis, Garland, Casper, Paddon....."the good old days"...... 

Yep the 70's & 80's were great times to follow football & the Boro, money wasn't as big an issue as it is today & the abyss between, not only the PL & championship, but between the elite clubs & the rest fighting to get enough points to stay up or content with finishing midtabke & sacrificing the cups with weaker teams

Loved my time back then following the Boro, loads of household names as you mentioned Old Codger

Blast from the past - 15th March 2006

The night we conquered Roma 

After last night's defeat to Crewe I thought I would post the total opposite of what it is to be a Boro fan, the highs, as well as the lows, we've seen it all

Boro went to Roma for the 2nd leg of UEFA, holding a, slender one goal advantage courtesy of a Yakubu 12th minute penalty, will one goal be enough in the Stadio Olimpico & see Boro in the Quarter finals

The game was hectic, Boro done the unthinkable & took the lead on 32 minutes through a JFH powerful header & 2-0 on the night, with away goal ruling Roma now needed 3

Roma were dangerous throughout & after hitting the bar before our goal Roma drew level on the night with a 43 minutes via Amantino Mancini, in the 66th minute Ray Parlour gave away a penalty & Mancini converted, 2-1 to Roma, Boro were now on the back foot, but through experience, hard work & the brilliance of Mark Schwarzer the Boro pulled one of the greatest upsets against the cup favourites & night we Boro fans will never forget

8 bookings & a sending off on the night 

Boro were now in the QF's of the UEFA same round as the previous season

This day, 32 years ago today

15th August 1987 seen us play our 1st game of the season, just 12 short months after been relegated, going in to voluntary liquidation we now start the season in a league higher with a group of local, hungry, run through a brick wall for the club players who have performed a minor miracle to get this far & who could imagine what we all had in store for the 1987-88 season, truly an amazing season indeed, seasons that dreams are made of

Middlesbrough v Millwall was the opening fixture of that memorable season & as he did the 1st game after liquidation v Port Vale, Archie Stephens got our goal, at the holgate end, a lovely diving header to bring the score level at 1-1, which was how the score finished

Bruce Rioch picked the following team

Stephen Pears

Dean Glover

Colin Cooper

Tony Mowbray

Gary Parkinson

Gary Pallister

Bernie Slaven

Archie Stephens

Gary Hamilton

Paul Kerr - our 1st cash signing after liquidation

Stuart Ripley

Attendance - 11,471

Ironically Millwall were our final opponents at Ayresome Park in our relegation season 1985-86 from the 2nd division, we won 3-0 with Brian Laws scoring our final goal at AP before liquidation & our 1st on our return to the 2nd division

 One season Leicester took over the Holgate End early on and weren't displaced until about ten minutes before kick-off when all the late comers arrived. Lots of fighting. I can't remember the year though, 68, 69. or 70?
