Erimus I'm guessing by your username you were born in 1974?

So some of this is before you're time? 

Are you an historian of all things Boro?

No Maccarone, born 1960, the 74 is reference to my favourite season, 1973 - 74 following the Boro

Love finding & posting Boro facts, especially Ayresome Park

Boro flashback - August 8th

We travelled to Edinburgh to play Hearts in the final of our Scottish mini tour, which didn't end well with the Boro on the end of a 3-0 thumping

The game featured the late, great Willie Maddren, who was involved with the 1st team for the 1st time since the 3rd September 1977 after he suffered knee injuries & after operations was named as one of the 4 substitutes

Alan Walsh, one of the other named subs, was named for his final Boro fixture before been released

Willie Maddren didn't play in another Boro fixture, what a great servant & a humble man, a true Boro legend

The Boro team 
Jim Stewart
Ian Bailey
Peter Johnson
John Mahoneys - Sub Craig Johnston
Stuart Boam
Alan Ramage
Graham Headley - Sub Billy Woof
Tony McAndrew
David Shearer - Sub Willie Maddren
Stan Cummins - Sub Alan Walsh
David Armstrong

No1 in the charts - Miss you, the Rolling Stones
Force 10 from Navarone was released

Really like the input and memory recovery features so far Erimus 74 and if this is your regular thing and forte perhaps we should simply have one thread devoted to your contributions of this sort and type of contribution.

Will have to come up with a good thread title something like "Erimus 74's Back in Time thread. Suggestions would be good but I feel one dedicated thread to your input would be good.

I think a sub-forum would be better, "Boro Memories"

I like it just the way it is, it’s nice to have new threads to read.  

Good to see a certain William Woof esq. getting a run out in that friendly, Erimus 😀

Love these threads Erimus74, more of anything from the 70's or 80's please.

Can't beat a bit of nostalgia.

Boro flashback 9th August 1975

ASC Qualifying round

Newcastle 2 Boro 2

Boro needed to avoid to defeat to finish top of the group to progress to the K/O stages, the group consisted of Boro, Carlisle, Sunderland & Newcastle 

IIRC a male Newcastle streaker ran on the pitch with the scores still at nil all, he looked like he'd been to Benidorm for his holidays with having white parts where his shorts once were, think he was wearing his socks 😎🌞

With the distraction over Newcastle scored 1st, Boro equalised through Alan Willey, took the lead through David Armstrong only for Newcastle to equalise, Boro had secured the point needed & progressed to the knock out stage, were we would play Aberdeen in the ASC QF 

Boro team
Pat Cuff
John Craggs
Ian Bailey
Graeme Souness
Stuart Boam
Tony McAndrew
Peter Brine
David Mills - Sub Malcolm Smith
Alan Willey
Harry Charlton

    • I thought there were ‘flashes’ in the first half where we did pull off the odd quick passing move, mostly through McNair. However I’d agree about the confirmation bias, I spent most of that game as bored as I was last season, we didn’t really trouble their keeper and we went long just as often as we did under pulis.  Was there enough there showing evidence of ‘the new era’? Other than a more attack minded line up no I don’t think there was. The three points were vital and hopefully it will help them all mentally but let’s be honest, we were poor and Wigan were even worse.
    • 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.
