just looked at the goalscorers in the other games on the 1971 clipping...some talented players there...Don Rogers, Tony Green, Derek Possee, Gerry Francis, Garland, Casper, Paddon....."the good old days"...... 

Yep the 70's & 80's were great times to follow football & the Boro, money wasn't as big an issue as it is today & the abyss between, not only the PL & championship, but between the elite clubs & the rest fighting to get enough points to stay up or content with finishing midtabke & sacrificing the cups with weaker teams

Loved my time back then following the Boro, loads of household names as you mentioned Old Codger

Blast from the past - 15th March 2006

The night we conquered Roma 

After last night's defeat to Crewe I thought I would post the total opposite of what it is to be a Boro fan, the highs, as well as the lows, we've seen it all

Boro went to Roma for the 2nd leg of UEFA, holding a, slender one goal advantage courtesy of a Yakubu 12th minute penalty, will one goal be enough in the Stadio Olimpico & see Boro in the Quarter finals

The game was hectic, Boro done the unthinkable & took the lead on 32 minutes through a JFH powerful header & 2-0 on the night, with away goal ruling Roma now needed 3

Roma were dangerous throughout & after hitting the bar before our goal Roma drew level on the night with a 43 minutes via Amantino Mancini, in the 66th minute Ray Parlour gave away a penalty & Mancini converted, 2-1 to Roma, Boro were now on the back foot, but through experience, hard work & the brilliance of Mark Schwarzer the Boro pulled one of the greatest upsets against the cup favourites & night we Boro fans will never forget

8 bookings & a sending off on the night 

Boro were now in the QF's of the UEFA same round as the previous season

Boro team

Davies - Sub Queudrue

This day, 32 years ago today

15th August 1987 seen us play our 1st game of the season, just 12 short months after been relegated, going in to voluntary liquidation we now start the season in a league higher with a group of local, hungry, run through a brick wall for the club players who have performed a minor miracle to get this far & who could imagine what we all had in store for the 1987-88 season, truly an amazing season indeed, seasons that dreams are made of

Middlesbrough v Millwall was the opening fixture of that memorable season & as he did the 1st game after liquidation v Port Vale, Archie Stephens got our goal, at the holgate end, a lovely diving header to bring the score level at 1-1, which was how the score finished

Bruce Rioch picked the following team

Stephen Pears

Dean Glover

Colin Cooper

Tony Mowbray

Gary Parkinson

Gary Pallister

Bernie Slaven

Archie Stephens

Gary Hamilton

Paul Kerr - our 1st cash signing after liquidation

Stuart Ripley

Attendance - 11,471

Ironically Millwall were our final opponents at Ayresome Park in our relegation season 1985-86 from the 2nd division, we won 3-0 with Brian Laws scoring our final goal at AP before liquidation & our 1st on our return to the 2nd division

 One season Leicester took over the Holgate End early on and weren't displaced until about ten minutes before kick-off when all the late comers arrived. Lots of fighting. I can't remember the year though, 68, 69. or 70?

Boro flashback - This day August 17th 1985 away to Wimbledon

Willie maddren starting his 2nd full season as Boro manager was busy in the summer tranfer market, hoping to put a team together to finally drag the team out of the slump we've been in since releagtion in 82 & move forward & challenge the right end of the 2nd division table (now championship)

Summer signings included, Don O'Riordan from Carlisle Utd, Gary Rowell from Norwich City, Gary Pallister from Billingham Town & Steve Corden was given his Boro debut from the reserves  

Boro lost the game 3-0,  Steve Corden suffered a broken leg during the game, was stretchered off an injury that ended his pro career

Fortunately he had a successful spell at Whitby where he won the title then switched to Guisborough where he helped Town reach the 1997 FA Vase semi-final &  later became manager

Willie Maddren picked the following team

Stephen Pears - 2nd spell at the Boro a loanee, now a permanent Boro player 

Brian Laws - 1st full season, signed March

Steve Corden

Gary Pallister - Boro debut

Tony Mowbray

Irvine Nattrass

Alan Roberts

Don O'Riordan - Boro debut

Archie Stephens - 1st full season, signed March

Gary MacDonald

Gary Rowell -  Boro debut

Sub -  Dave Currie

sad to see how some of the teams in Div 2 in the 1974 clipping have fared since then....York, Notts County ...even Orient for a while...in a way, we are still one of the lucky ones....

    • 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.
