Some excellent nostalgia on this thread. Always nice to remember past seasons and reflect on the ups and downs of being a Boro fan, our past is what makes us who we are today. Lovely stuff.

Cheers DocMartin & very true, very true indeed

One of the best additions to the Forum for a long time, thanks Erimus for bringing back so many memories, really enjoy your posts, absolutely excellent.

I hope some of our younger forum members take time to read these, it's all about the history of the club, the good times and the bad and is what makes us who we are.

Pure brilliant stuff!

Boro flashback - 20th december 1980

Boro 4 Spurs 1 

A cracking early christmas present for us Boro fans with David Hodgson one & only 1st team hat trick, his 4th goal of the season, Boro's 130th hat trick as a football league club & 123rd at Ayresome Park  & a Craig Johnston with his 9th goal of the season, in front of 15,990

I can't praise John Neal enough for the team he was building at Ayresome Park, a truly fast, attacking, youthful team & another 'if only' Boro team

I suspect the scoreline will be reversed when we play Spurs again. And I wonder if we'll ever see a Boro team with 11 UK players starting, let alone a team with three Dave/Davids in it. You know where you are with a player called Dave.

Crying shame that the chairmans greed was put before the needs of the team. Some quality players sold forcing Neal to leave and handing a poisoned chalice to Murdoch. 

 

Oh what could have been.

Boro flashback this day back in 1986 - Sunday football 

21st December the Boro travelled to Griffin Park to face Brentford in our 3rd division fixture, the game was played on a sunday which was Boro's 2nd ever Sunday fixture, though 1st league fixture after playing Notts County away on Sunday the 7th of December in the 2nd round of the FAC, which I travelled to on the supporters coach

And similar to the Notts County game we came away with a 1-0 away win in a memorable season

This game also included a debutant in Paul Proudlock, wearing the No12 shirt, replacing Archie Stephens in the 2nd half

Bruce's team

Stephen Pears

Brian Laws

Colin Cooper

Tony Mowbray

Gary Parkinson

Gary Pallister

Bernie Slaven

Archie Stephens

Gary Hamilton

Stuart Ripley

1986-88 was similar to 1973-75 whereas the team was virtually the same, week in, week out

I wasn't sure whether to post this on here or not but over on FMTTM there's a thread about you.  Someone has said you have suffered a family bereavement?  Just wanted to offer my sympathies and best wishes if that's the case.

H all, hope you all had a lovely xmas day

Boro flashback to probably one of my favourite festive Boro games, back in 1976

27th December Ason Villa arrived at Ayresome Park unbeaten since 29th October when losing 3-0 at Liverpool

David Mills scored the 1st of the 2 hat tricks he scored in his Boro career

The whistle blew with Boro going in at HT 3-1 to the good & a half you didnt want to end we were that good, the score actually flattered Villa, we battered Villa

The 2nd half was a totally different game as Villa took the game by the scruff of the neck when pulling a goal back, via Andy Gray

A crowd of 31,451 with erimus & his younger brother

Boro flashback - This day 1977

We say farewell to the best Boro player, IMHO, to play for our football club

31st December seen Graeme Souness play his final game for the mighty Boro in a 2-2 home draw v Norwich

 A couple of seasons previous, Souness scored the only goal v Norwich to temporarily take us to the top of the league, this time v Norwich he was saying goodbye

Graeme Souness had signed for the Boro on the 30th December 1972 now leaving on the 31st 1977 with over 200 appearances for the Boro, scoring 23 goals, including one hat trick

Another massive legend John Hickton also started his final game for the Boro after 11 seasons, ironically his 1st game for the Boro was No5 & his last starting shirt was No5, big John was to make 4 more appearances wearing the No12 shirt before leaving his beloved Boro

Goalie Pat Cuff, who made his Boro debut on the 9th April 1974, in a 0-0 home draw v Bolton, was also playing his final game for the Boro as manager John Neal was checking out who he wants as No2 to Jim Platt going forward

This game also seen Stan Cummins score his 1st home goal, doubling his Boro account                                    Davey Armstrong got the other goal 

The game was watched by the lowest crowd of the season 15,646, which was 12,000 down on the previous home game 4 days earlier v Man City

John Neal's team that finished the year

John Craggs

I would like to thank you for the time and effort and the enjoyment of your thread over the last few months or so, also as CT mentioned to acknowledge your recent family bereavement.

Met Souness as he was dating my cousin at the time

    • Looks like Woodgate's stole my thunder, I was just thinking the same thing, that we needed to play better and win games, and also if we can score more  goals than the opposition we'll manage to get 3 points. I can't believe it without realizing it before,  I actually could be the next Boro manager, I meet the criteria needed for the job..
    • And that's where this topic ends. You're not challenging what I've said, you're not countering my point of doublespeak, you're making a point to disagree with me over a point I've not even made. Once again you've said: Something if you'll take note of what I've said above, I actually agree with. So what on earth are you banging on about saying I think I can get away with saying something unchallenged? Perhaps if you'd challenged it to begin with, we wouldn't even be having this completely pointless argument.
    • The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (Thought I’d go with a western theme as its apt for those cowboys masquerading as footballers) Well this Wednesday the (Once) mighty Boro take on the Dirty Leeds at the Theater of Nightmares. After witnessing two of the worst displays of football against some of the leagues worst performing teams we host High Flying Leeds who seemed to have gotten over their own blip with back to back wins against Reading and Bristol City respectively. Location Fortress Weakness Riverside Time High Noon (It has to be noon somewhere but locally its 1945hrs)     With our own General Custer preparing to pit his wits against a foreign opponent Woody will be frantically spinning the wheel of misfortune and throwing over-sized darts at photo boards to come up with a team selection and formation to ensure we don’t suffer our own annihilation similar to the Battle of Little Bighorn. Can he do it? Personally I think you have a better chance of winning a game of Russian roulette with a fully loaded six shooter   Players Out Boro                Type of Injury                                     Ayala               Shot himself in the foot (Rather than hold the defense together)      Dijksteel          Rawhide (From being left on his ass so much)            Roberts           Pack Horse syndrome (For carrying the team since his arrival Dael Fry          Prolapsed rectum (From seeing what the midfield are up too)   Words From The Head Coach Dipugferw87ft NOT MY FAULT dgg8ggcug THEY DON’T LISTEN suycgduygcdubdu Dhcvduvcducv YOUNG LADS ARE TO BLAME udybdfubvfiuvidfvnnkdn Words from the Assistant Coach I played against Maldini ya know……. Situation   Latest Odds Boro         9/2 Draw        14/5 Leeds       13/20 (In short if you bet £20 on a Boro win, you lose £20)   Uwe’s Thoughts THE BAD --This game is going to be an absolute horror show.  Leeds high energy, pressing and closing-down game plan will turn our disjointed rag tag (but expensive) bunch of misfits totally inside out. The Ugly – The score line could be absolutely anything (Id be happy to keep it to 4 or under) However The Good – If its true that Steve Gibson will be attending the bloodbath he witnesses might be the incentive he needs to pull the rip cord on Woody. Not that I want us to lose as I would (adopt Kevin Keegan voice) Love it if we beat them, but every cloud and all that   A View from the other side No matchday thread as yet but can be found here when its up and running. https://www.motforum.com/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=1   Important Questions Can Boro get anything from the game? Strongest Team/Formation? Will Woody still be here after the International break? Why do you hate Leeds? Why aren’t people that order steak ‘Well Done’ sent straight to prison?   Over to you guys and girls!!!!!
    • Disappointment and a sense of futility?
    • I actually think he's been pretty good out of position whether that's been RB/RWB or CB, but these last two games he's played there he has been dreadful.
