This day back in 1984, 22nd September 

Fulham 2 Boro 1

Willie Maddren's team had played 5 games so far that season, losing 4 & drawing one, scoring 6 & conceded 14, sitting bottom of the league as we traveled to London, more in hope than expectation

The result was consistent with our form so far that season, a defeat, David Mills scoring our consolation goal in a 2-1 loss, David Mills's penalty, his 3rd goal of the season, wasn't enough as we went down to another defeat

Traveling back from London WM had a lot to ponder to how he was going to get our 1st win of the season & try & get this season back on trot

This was to be Darren Wood's final game in a Boro shirt before his £72k transfer to Chelsea, with Tony McAndrew part of the transfer, returning back to the Boro

Boro flashback - This day back in 87 Cup action at Ayresome Park

After knocking out Sunderland in the 1st round of the league cup we were drawn against our 2nd division opponents & rivals that season in Aston Villa, on this day 23rd September, we faced Villa in the 1st leg at home, a good crowd of 11,400 were tret to a cracking cup tie, Boro going down 1-0, but missed many chances to have taken a 1st leg lead to Villa Park, including a missed penalty 

We faced Villa 4 times that season, losing boyth cup games & winning both league games, even the final day of the league season couldnt have been any closer

Boro flashback to a iconic legend 

IMHO, probably one the biggest Iconic legends we were lucky to see play for our football club
John Hickton, born 24th September 1944, was 22 when he made his debut, at home to Workington, scored his 1st Boro penalty & brought the Boro back from 2-0 down to win 3-2

John Hickton, signed for the mighty Boro on the evening of Friday, September 23rd, 1966 the day before the game v Workington
Secretary Harry Green drove to his home in Chesterfield to complete the signing, apparently other clubs were in for him but Harry got in first, well done Harry, we are forever in your debt

On the day of the game he was met at Scotch Corner by club captain, Gordon Jones & manager, Stan Anderson.

Middlesbrough were at the foot of the 3rd divison table when John Hickton made his debut, wearing the No5 shirt, playing at centre half, in place of the injured Dickie Rooks.

Big John was marking Workington’s Max Tolson & struggling against the striker who scored twice in the opening 17 minutes
On the 37th minute Boro got got a lifeline & were awarded a penalty & no one wanted to take it. Hickton asked who the penalty taker was and was told it was Rooks but he wasn’t playing
Big John had taken a few for Sheff Weds to grabbed the ball stepped up & smashed in the ball in the back of the net
And a legend was born

The goal proved to be the turning point for the Boro who played with a lot more confidence after the break. With 18 minutes remaining Horner’s pass was flicked on by Chadwick & Horsfield cracked the ball home from close range. With 5 minutes remaining & the crowd in full voice Boro grabbed the winner. O’Rourke drove in a cross which Horsfield met at the far post to head home
3-2 to the mighty Boro
We got the 2 points & a penalty king was born

    • We had some impressive results and performances in that PL season against Top 10 teams with a net spend of 17m (De Roon making up the majority of this net with a 13m fee). The whole club were not invested in the project and a few individuals in the background were working against AK. Imagine the difference if we were able to add to the squad with some of the names linked below in 2016/17: Lukas Rupp (signed for TSG 1899 Hoffenheim) Aissa Mandi (signed for Real Betis)  Dennis Praet (signed for Sampdoria) James Morrison (signed a contract extension at West Brom) Michail Antonio (signed a contract extension with West Ham) Clément Grenier  Clement Chantome (signed for Stade Rennais) Hakim Ziyech Domagoj Vida  Tim Krul Khouma Babacar Thomas Meunier (signed for PSG) Neven Subotic (deal fell through after failed medical) Harry Maguire Enzo Fernández Gerard Deulofeu Fernando Llorente (signed for Swansea)  Tomas Kalas (signed for Fulham)  Laurent Depoitre Jefferson Montero Alvaro Arbeloa (signed for West Ham)  Denis Cheryshev Rachid Ghezzal Filip Djordjevic Kenneth Vermeer Jon Walters Cheick Tiote Henri Bedimo Rachid Ghezzal Gökhan Gönül Keiren Westwood Pepe Reina Martin Skrtel (signed for Fenerbahçe)  Cameron Jerome Sergi Samper Ryan Bennett Cristi Săpunaru Mike van der Hoorn (signed for Swansea) Blerim Džemaili Lee Cattermole Matt Philips (signed for West Brom) Chris Gunter Ramadel Falcao Matz Sels (signed for Newcastle) Vincent Aboubakar Martin Caceres Nicolai Jorgensen Santiago Arias Tomáš Necid Jeff Hendrick (signed for Burnley) Robin Van Persie Demarai Grey Filip Helander Yakou Meite (signed for Reading) Andre Ayew Wesley Hoedt
    • Usually 15% of capacity unless the police decide otherwise. So should be around 5200 - dependent on the layout of the stadium.  Our official (dry) coaches are departing at 5.20am!
