Boro flashback - This day the 26th November 1975

Hands up those who were genually excited about playing in a cup final, when given our history apart from the North Riding Senior Cup finals us Boro fans were pretty thin on the ground when cup finals come along, so this was the biggy

We wern't really too bothered how many we scored to take to the second leg in December, as long as we took a lead & a lead we took, courtesy of Les Strong connecting to a Davey Armstrong cross, 1-0 to the mighty reds, to take to Craven cottage in 2 weeks time

Jim Platt
John Craggs
Frank Spraggon
Bobby Murdoch
Stuey Boam
Willie Maddren
Peter Brine
David Mills
John Hickton
Terry Cooper
Davey Armstrong
Sub - Alan Foggon, who came on for Bobby Murdoch in the 2nd half

That was the team I grew up with and still my favourite time as a fan.

Lots of nostalgic memories. 

Thanks Erimus

Remember that game well....maybe I was just unlucky, but every time I saw Moore, I was left thinking why is this guy rated so highly....constantly moaning to referee, argued with teammates and just seemed as though he thought he was fouled every time Boam drop-kicked him more than ten feet....

The late, great Willie Maddren played  340 games, 3 as sub between 1968 - 1977, scoring 21 goals

He scored a goal on his full Boro debut on the last home game of the season & to date, an unbeaten home record against relegated Bury, what could go wrong 

Willie almost doubled his account from the same position he scored his 1st goal, a corner swung across & Willie's powerful header smashed against the crossbar & over, leaving a ball mud stain on the crossbar

In his autobiography he wrote, after the summer break when he returned to preseason training the ball stain Mark was still visible on the crossbar

His final Boro appearences, 3rd September 1977 way to WBA seen debuts to two players, Boro's Billy Ashcroft & WBA 's Cyril Regis

A remarkable player & a true Boro legend

Nah, that's just an advert.  Blades does come from Sheffield being a big steel producer though.

11th May 1985 

Shrewsbury 0 Boro 2

One of Boro 's great escapes

Final game of the season, Willie Maddrens 1st full season as our manager, we had slowly dragged ourselves clear of relegation & needed a point to guarantee survival 

2 players sent off & 90 minutes later we were safe & able to fight another day, well safe first another 12 months when the sane venue sadky resulted in the opposite outcome

You have to admit Alf was right about the rebirth of the Boro........just got the year wrong (and just about everything else

 

the last three paragraphs of that Gazette comment shows how much things have changed since then

It's on the 'Up The Boro' album.  You can download it from ITunes and get some other Boro classics at the same time.  I think you can still get the CD version on Amazon as well 🙂

    • The problem I see is that we could still leave ourselves hanging if we want two and only sign one. It definitely feels like we could do with a couple of quality additions at the back. And if Gibson goes to the wire, we could leave ourselves in the lurch as our other targets, ones not just us are after, will move elsewhere. The lad from Leicester in particular seems like someone with a bright future and a decent career so far too, I'd be disappointed to see us miss out on signing him because we sign Simpson and we throw everything at getting Gibson and falter. I know some on here have switched off already for this season but I absolutely want to see us go for it so long as we can. I see very little point in switching off so long as we don't kill off our summer plans by doing so, let's finish as high as we possibly can and hey, even top 10 would be something after our start to this year. So yeah, I'm sceptical of Gibson signing without any cheap permanent by the end of it but by all means, get as much quality in as we can and give it a go.
    • D Blackburn  v  Q.P.R. H Brentford  v  N/Forest. (no scorer.) A Cardiff  v  W.B.A. H Hull Cty  v  Huddersfield. H Leeds  v  Millwall. A Luton  v  Derby. A Wigan  v  Sheff Wednesday. H Reading  v  Bristol City A Tranmere  v  Sunderland.. D Rotherham  v  Ipswich Twn.
    • I am not saying this because it seems the Gibson deal might be drifting away from us but I am quite relaxed about the whole situation. i think the reason for that is we seem to be eyeing some decent alternatives in Benkovic and Simpson who both come with a lot of promise. For once we not put all our eggs in one basket. I know club are looking at two CBs but if we get 1 of the above 3 in I will be happy with that. if we dont get either of the 3 then I will start to worry. Oh and i still got hopes our beloved boro will make a out the blue type signing for the top end of the pitch. Ideally more Lee Tomlin out the blue and less Adlene Guidioura out the blue.
    • Hey don't get uptight about it I was just pointing out to Smogzilla  a fact and how I see it. By the way there really is no effort in doing this, it just pass's some of my spare time and it keeps my brain active since I retired.  
    • The finances always had to be right for this deal to happen in this window and were a long way off from that happening from what I was told Thursday. What's the point in spending a million pound plus wages on a six month loan deal when we are not going to be either fighting relegation or fighting for the play offs. Deal could still happen yet but I expect us to push hard for permanent transfer in the summer. Ps whoever said Gibson had a medical over the weekend was talking utter cr@p
