Boro flashback / On this day - Erimus74

Recommended Posts

Tony Mogga Mowbray, Boro legend captain & manager made his debut this day 1982, along with Paul Ward & given instructions, follow Kevin Keegan all over the pitch, even in to their dressing room if you must

A debut to a great Boro career & a massive task for such a young lad, but looking back it's what Mogga thrived on 

For the record, Mick Channon scored his one & only Newcastle goal that night on the 56th minute, Darren Wood equalised on the 67th minute, the final score 1-1

James Clifton Robinson president & managing director of Imperial Tramways & also a shareholder of the club performed the official opening ceremony of Ayresome Park

Sunderland were the visitor for the 1st home league game of the season, after losing the opening fixture away to Sheff Weds 4-1 hopefully we will bounce back in our new home

Although not 100% complete, the first paying customers were admitted to Ayresome Park for a friendly game against Glasgow Celtic on Tuesday 1st September, which attracted a crowd of around 7,000 spectators, with Boro new boy Willie White scoring the only goal of the game

Boro took the game to Sunderland & were the dominat team in the 1st half & with both teams looking like going in at HT goalless Boro's captain, Joe Cassidy become the 1st player to officially score a league goal on our sacred football gound, Sunderland levelled early in the 2nd half, but within 30 seconds of Sunderlands goal Alex Brown restored Boro's lead, 2-1 to the mighty red, Sunderland eventually ran out winners by 3-2, if VAR was around back then all Sunderlands goals would have been disalowed

Tim 'Tiny'Williamson - 602 appearances, 2 goals
John Hogg - 100 appearences, no goals
Joseph Blacket - 80 appearences, 4 galas

Where do you get all the info and picture's from Erimus?  amazing stuff you should write a book on the history of MFC, I would but it for sure. I find this really interesting, I like to find out about the history of our club, your posts are superb.

I have a book at home that tells the stories of some former players, starts with the keepers, defense, midfield and then strikers, it's a good read.

Good to see you posting elsewhere E74,I've pretty much stopped reading and posting(occasionally) on fmttm,due to the rabid  pro EU posters spoiling the site and Rob only(seemingly) banning  the posters that disagree with the boards left wing clique!

This day, 13th September 1986, seen the Boro travel to Gillingham for a third division clash, our 2nd away fixture so far

The 3 previous league games have resulted in 2 wins & a draw, even more remarkable when you consider we had no preseason training, all the teams we faced had a full preseason fixture of friendlies 

This game brought two ex Boro favourites playing against the Boro in Dave Shearer & Terry Cochrane

Boro once again fielded an unchanged team

The game finished goalless, with Gillingham the 1st team so far to shut Boro out, another 7 was to happen throughout the season

What happened to Cook? I vaguely remember his name

He went to Scarborough later in 86 then played for another 7 teams, he had 4 seperate spells  at Scarborough, where he was born & managed them too

This day back in 86 we played Chesterfield at Ayresome Park for this 3rd division fixture

This been our 6th league fixture of the season on the 20th September, just over one month after the season kicked off & so far no defeat which is quite remarkable considering the lack of preseason training the team went through in the sumner

Bruce was sticking with the players who are doing the business on the pitch, not that he has that many to chose from but the spirit within the club is enormous, every single player is fighting for his teammate, quite remarkable 

Boro ran out 2-0 winners with goals from Mowbray, his 2nd of the season & Laws 1st of the season, in front of our biggest crowd of the season & our biggest since the turn of the year, the club is growing & finally going in the right direction

    • I really hope you're wrong.   Woodgate has publicly stated that its "blatantly obvious" we need to bring players in. Hope he had a chat with Gibson before saying that, otherwise their next meeting could be awkward. 😁   At the same time, I hope that IF we bring players in, they're not bargain basement jobs, no better (or worse) than what we already have. Wouldn't even mind if we have to bring some loaners in.
    • Bailey thinks there is something in the Hughton Links. 
    • Only one thing for it:
    • As I said in another thread, when you can't actually defend, then your best form of defence is attack. 😉  
    • One thing I gleamed from the report from the Palace game (give the post a read if you havent - interesting write up) is that our team came out with attacking intent, pressed high and blew Palace away. Kinda like how I thought Luton was going to go and how I thought the season would progress. The golden thread. The philosophy which would permeate through all age groups to ease continuation through the ranks. If we are going to dominate Charlton thats what we need to do. Get high up the pitch, force them into panicked clearances, then start the attack again. With our defensive fraility it feels like attacking high press is the best form of defence and its a tactic I am not happy we abandoned so hastilly.
