Boro flashback - 70's

Recommended Posts

1st post for me on here 

5th August 

This day back in 1975 

Our 2nd match in our glorious ASC triumph at home to Carlisle, after beating Sunderland 3-2 we thumped Carlisle 4-1 with goals from Alan Wiley 2, John Hickton penalty & Ian Bailey's 1st Boro goal on his 2nd appearance

One more point will see us top the group & qualify for the next stage

Welcome Erimus74,

That's probably a little before my time, I started watching The Boro in 1978, quite a few on the team sheet were still with us when I started watching. Platt, Craggs, Souness Boam, Armstrong, Mills and Bailey all stayed for a while.

warm welcome Erimus. its always good to do a bit of reminiscing now and then.  im in the slightly older generation so those Big Jack days bring back some great memories ,had my first ever season ticket(as a juvenile mind) the season we actually did smash this league.

Yes welcome indeed Erimus 74 and a nostalgic look back in time.

I was saying to my lad on Friday whilst at Luton how I remembered Big Jack following the players around and taking their track suit tops and bottoms just before kick off. Alan Foggon a recent addition to the team in that match.

Looking at the line up I wonder just how many of them would walk straight into the current set up on a like for like basis?

Quite a few I would think.

My era,loved those days, used to keep a scrap book with cuttings from the Boro Pink? Do I remember that correctly?

Am I correct in thinking that we went on to win the Anglo Scottish Cup that year ie 1976 for the final? I seem to remember winning 1-0 against Fulham at Ayresome Park and drawing 0-0 at Craven Cottage in the final. I was quite young at the time so am open to correction

Blonco, yes you are correct, apart from the year, december 1975 we drew 0-0 at Craven Cottage & after beating Fulham 1-0 in the 1st leg at AP in November .

Thanks for the clarification Erimus. I’m glad that the old grey matter is still functioning reasonably ok. I had January in my head for the second leg at Craven Cottage but I am happy to hear that I was close enough. 👍

Welcome also The_Little_Fella and for your endorsement of a fellow forum member. oneBoro certainly seems to be attracting a fair number of FMTTM members?

    • I fully agree with CT on this, that performance tonight was absolutely turgid and nothing like what Woodgate has said he wants his teams to play like. I'm personally of the opinion that I don't really care about performance aslong as we win, but we were getting results under Pulis mostly and played much better than what I seen tonight for the most part. Confirmation Bias is definitely effecting peoples positivity on Pulis football vs Woodgate football. I have absolutely no doubt we would have had more points on the board so far and been through in the cup if TP was still in charge, but as has been said, Woodgate might just need time, but if anybody can sit and say what we produced tonight was better than 'Pulisball' they aren't being subjective at all and are purely basing it on a dislike for Pulis. FWIW I thought it was time for Pulis to go so this isn't me defending TP, but what we're seeing isnt much different to last year. 
    • Like I said in my other post, people hated Pulis for far more than that. I don't think all of it was actually justified, certainly not to begin with and certainly not all the time. Surely this situation proves that more than anything, where people can see a similar thing from a different manager and feel quite significantly different about it. There was that undertone to his tenure that existed far beyond what people saw at the Riverside and it bled into the atmosphere within the Stadium too, I imagine. I think at times some hated him more for the reputation of his football than they actually hated his football to begin with, despite claiming that it was entirely the latter and I find that quite bizarre.
    • People kicked off about my post not the other way around.  I was just confused about certain things as I often am on here 🙂
    • We were able to beat what was in front of us last season as well.  I suppose I am waiting to see more and I didn't see anything tonight even though we won.  Like I say, the performance is the performance whoever is in charge but maybe that's a flawed way of looking at it, I don't know.
    • Jesus *** christ CT, calm down.
