Last minute winner from the late, great Willie Maddren secured a place in the QF's of the league cup

Jim Platt, John Craggs, Frank Spraggon, Graeme Souness, Stuey Boam, Willie Maddren, Bobby Murdoch, Malcolm Smith, John Hickton, Alan Foggon, Davey Armstrong, sub, Brian Taylor

Jim Platt saved a Kevin Keegan penalty this day too

Big Jack was at Buckingham Palace in the afternoon being appointed an OBE by the Queen, not a bad day at the office, think she even asked big Jack for a ticket ūü§Ē

No, old Codger, the game when KK wasn't happy that our defence, team, restricted him & marshalled him the whole afternoon was on the 2nd October 1976

Boro flashback - This day 13th November 1982

Charlton 2 Boro 3

Malcolm Allison's Boro went to the capital to face Charlton & their latest superstar £300k signing Alan Simonsen from Barcelona, he chose Charlton over a number of clubs, Spurs & Real Madrid in order to play for less stress & attention

Back to the mighty Boro, after the awful start to the season & sacking of Bobby Murdoch, MA has turned the club around, we haven't lost a game since the 28th September, a 6 game run, Charlton with Simonsen in their team were hot favourites to win but the renewed spirit & Kevin Beatties leadership seen the Boro triumph with 2 goals from David Shearer taking his tally to 7 for the season & Mick Kennedy (RIP) scoring his 1st Boro goal

This was Beatties 2nd game, his 1st away game, resulting in our 1st away win of the season

Onwards & upwards

Ah, great times back in 1995. That was really quite an occasion. Hard to believe the calibre of players we could attract back then.

Interesting to note in that 1982 paper, one of the articles states that the club was losing 12 grand a week. Seems all was not well, long before 1986.¬†ūüėě

Boro flashback 12th November 1977

Villa 0 Boro 1

Who remembers Stan Cummins the 1st million pound footballer which Jack sort of said at a media meeting & the press changed his words around 

Well Stanley scored his 1st Boro goal on his 1st appearences of the season taking both points back to Teesside & our 2nd away win of the season 

Pat Cuff was standing in for Jim Platt, John Neal was trying to find who was going to be his No1 keeper of the 3 on the Boro's books

My initial thought too Maccarone, I was gutted when walking home from work & seen the gazette headline Cummins up for sale, not longer after Sunderland snapped him up, bad business IMHO

If Stan was playing now, he would have had a much better chance of a long career....he needed protection from referees from the hatchet men of the era and at that time, it was sporadic at best......still gave me two of my fondest memories....tormenting the two Chelsea centrebacks, Droy and Wicks skating over the mud while they lumbered after him....7-2 with even the BBC admitting we were slightly better than the Blues........and then a while later, running half the length of the pitch to score in a 4-2 win at St. James Park...............sigh..............we have had some spuds, but he was one of the diamonds......"the even littler feller"

It is correct........one month after we sold Dave Mills for the previous highest fee......that's inflation for you........mind you, we started the spiral with Alf Common

Yes he was , I think Jack Charlton said Cummins was going to be the first million pound footballer but that honour went to Francis.

Old Codger, I didn't realise Trevor Francis's record transfer was so close to David Mills record signing, good memory ūüĎć

On this day 15th November, the mighty Boro defeated Blackpool 3-0 in the FAC 1st round, our only other 1st round FAC game was 20 years previous, on the 26th Novemeber, which also included a hat trick, the scorer John O'Rourke, when bagging 3 away to Chester in a 5-2 win

Bernies hat trick was his 1st Boro hat trick & our 1st FAC hat trick, since David Mills bagged 3 at home to Arsenal on the 26th February 1976, from John Brown netting our 1st hat trick, he actually scored 4, v Bishop Aukland back in 1900 Bernie was the 17th Boro player to score 3 in an FAC tie

Bernie 2 days after his 26th birthday joined the selective group & gained revenege on 1st team to beat us in the league that season when beating us 3-1 at Ayresome Park back in october

    • Even with no rumours today,¬†I still back Warnock to bring in players he would actually use for his style and system. I‚Äôve just watched (I know late to the party) Sunderland til I die season 2 and their January window episode. ¬† Firstly,¬†It amazes me how the chairman splurged money on¬†Will Grigg when he could have used that extra money to get Maja to stay. But secondly, and more boro related was that the manager at the time Jack Ross didn‚Äôt really fancy Will Grigg, but the chairman bought him anyway. Surprise surprise, Will Grigg struggled and didn‚Äôt fit in to how they play.¬† ¬† How does this relate to Boro? Well I think in the past,¬†we have bought players who don‚Äôt fit a style and system for a manager.¬†I think Warnock won‚Äôt sanction players to come if they don‚Äôt fit in, and this is obviously a huge positive moving forward.¬† ¬† Put it this way, I‚Äôm more confident that players will come to us for Warnock and work for him as opposed to a Boro under Woodgate. You can already tell the mentality of moving on quickly and not begging for players had an impact.¬† ¬† Why did Woodgate start Gestede vs Swansea, knowing that Gestede wouldn‚Äôt want to play in case he got injured. Warnock commands respect and Woodgate was seeking it. Big difference in mentality that I think gets overlooked with Woodgate and the recruitment side.¬†
    • Warnock's deadline for players to decide has nearly passed.
    • All pritty quiet today, other than the wingy debate, hopefully in prep for an influx of new signings
    • That was actually scrapped in Denmark as it‚Äôs impossible for the stewards to tell if people live together. Just too hard to handle¬†
    • August 3rd 1974 Boro 0 Carlisle United 1 A dull and disappointing Texaco Cup game between two teams who were both contemplating life in the First Division after being promoted together a few weeks earlier. In fact they'd meet twice in the top flight in the next fortnight or so. Boro became frustrated after several early saves by Carlisle keeper Alan Ross and too often resorted to long balls that the visitors' tall defenders dealt with comfortably.¬† It was former Boro favourite Hugh McIlmoyle who created the only goal, setting up Martin to fire home after 50 minutes. All in all a bad day at the office for Boro, with Jack Charlton saying after the game that he'd seen his team work harder in practice matches. In the news - The Tories criticised Labour's manifesto pledge to follow a policy of nationalisation ahead of the forthcoming election, housewives were warned (in a possibly sexist way) that eggs could cost ¬£1.50 a dozen by 1975, Richard Nixon prepared to give a TV address as impeachment loomed in the Watergate affair and three north east lads were arrested in Spain for singing loudly at 2am and fined ¬£1 each (equivalent to 8 eggs, or a decent Spanish omelette). Top of the charts - Rock Your Baby by George McCrae.
