Was at that game at Old Trafford, Erimus..........a very long 90 minutes.......wish we had scored three minutes from the end instead of the kick-off....weird how elastic time can be in those situations......good ride home on the coach though....listening to sports reporters trying to explain MU had been unlucky rather than outplayed, .......some things don't change.....thanks for the memories....

Erimus you will be able to help me. 

Can you remember the floodlights failing at Ayresome Park,I think it was against Leicester? 

When was that? I also seem to remember we won the rearranged game 3-0.

Thought you might be able to answer above?

Maccarone, the date of the lights failure was 24th September 1974, Boro leading 1-0, Souness scored & Keith Welker was running through with the ball when the lights went out 

I remember standing in the holgate, in what seems ages then it came over the tanniy that the problem coukdnt be fixed that night & we all trundled off in to the night

29/10/1988 - Boro flashback 

Boro 4 Millwall 2 & a record signing 

I remember this day, for all the right, excitable reason's, as if it were yesterday

Saturday morning me & Pam had just got home from shopping with my pre-match fish & chips before setting off to the match

As we sat in the back room having our dinner, one ear listening to Pam & the other listening to the radio when all of a sudden it was announced that Peter Davenport had chose to sign for the Boro over Villa, wow, what a cracking signing, 2 years after almost going to the wall we had signed an England International from Man Utd & ex Forest player, a record signing, which was going to improve our young, exciting team even more, or so we thought

As soon as I heard the news my F&C were history, I was so excited I just wanted to go the match then, though it was only half 12 & we lived in the village, which was 10 minutes to AP

Once I came down from off the ceiling I finally ate my F&C, gave my wife a kiss on the cheek & round to the yellow rose for a pre match beer, or two with my dad & mates, then off to the holy grail, to see the mighty Boro

Walking to the ground you could feel the excitement in the air, going through Ayresome Park turnstiles the ground was buzzing, there's only going to be one winner that afternoon

The match kicked off, the crowd were really up for it, the game swung one way, then another, from 1-0 up to 2-1 down to winning 4-2, this game was as good as the score suggests

Exciting from start to finish, fantastic Boro

Gary Hamilton v Trevor Hurlock, what a contest, Gary Hamilton came out on top though

With goals from Bernie Slaven, Stuart Ripley, Mark Burke & a Gary Parkinson penalty

What a fantastic game, one of my highlights at AP, I dearly miss that place

That was a fantastic era following the Boro, so proud & fortunate to have been a Boro fan back then 

Boro team: Stephen Pears, Gary Parkinson, Colin Cooper. Tony Mowbray, Gary Hamilton, Gary Pallister, Bernie Slaven, Mark Brennan, Mark Burke, Paul Kerr, Stuart Ripley, sub, Alan Kernaghan

I'm sure that was Millwalls 1st defeat of the season & Millwalls keeper signed for us on loan for 4 games a few seasons later

Attendance: 19,788

Boro flashback 29th October 1983

Boro 4 Shrewsbury 0

Goals by Heine Otto, his 3rd of the season & his 1st at home in that campaigne, a double from Dave Currie taking his seasons tally to 8 goals & a final goal to round off a great victory from Paul Ward, for his 1st & only goal for the Boro

It was our 1st win in 8 games infront of our lowest crowd of the season, 6,372

 

Big Mal's team

Kelham O'Hanlon - Was to miss the next game for a legend to sign on loan

Darren Wood - An ever present that season 

Tony Mowbray - 6th game of the season, when he wore 3 different shirt numbers

Heine Otto - This quality, skilful maverick played every game that season, loved his time at the Boro

Mick Baxter - Only missed one game all season, the final one, RIP Mick

Irvine Nattrass - An ever present that season, his only one at the Boro

Paul Ward - Wore 5 different shirt numbers that season

Mick Kennedy - Loved this player, fantastic attitude

Dave Currie - Finished the season on 15 league goals, good local player, IMHO

Paul Sugrue - Only missed 2 games in the whole season, cracking signing

Andy Crawford  -  2nd game, his home debut

Erimus 74, what a cracking thread.   Heine Otto , my original hero as he scored at my first ever game 1-3 to spurs opening day 81/82?  A real trip down a proper lovely memory lane, keep them coming.

Cheers Pompey Smog, I certainly will

I met & had a coffee with Heine recently when in Amsterdam, what a lovely humble man who remembers his time with great memories

    • Issue is that someone on this forum is very very well connected with the club and I don't think it's fair when someone posts complete lies which puts the club in a negative light.  Yes, we all get information wrong and I recognise that and understand that but I don't think it's fair that fans are mislead into believing posts which are made up. I know the poster who is very well connected to the club and I am sure the admins will be confirm this. I have always been happy to reveal where I get my information from and take the criticism when it's wrong which it has been, but I am sure if he revealed his source then you would understand why people get annoyed.
    • Have to agree RB. There are no positives whatsoever in relegation. None
    • There are no positives, if we do get relegated we would get rid of the high earners but we would be offered a lot less for the players than their market value, beggars can't be choosers. Season ticket prices would have to fall, but fans may start to think the chairman  has pulled their pants down once to often so I  see a fan backlash. I think it would be a complete financial disaster, and who honestly would want to invest financially into a club where the owner has shown how incompetent he is  time and time again. We would struggle to come back up we should be a lot better than this, its criminal that we have to talk about it but its a possibility..
    • If you get it right in League One by creating a winning mentality and smashing the league it creates a certain environment and positive feeling around the club. Look at modern day Leicester, Norwich, Bournemouth and how the foundations built in League One propelled them up the leagues. Personally based on the current structure of the club and the decisions of the last 5 years relegation for us would be an absolute disaster as the gap between Championship and Premier League grows. You get it wrong and you end up like Sunderland, Blackpool, Ipswich or a Portsmouth destined to remain a lower league club without significant investment
    • Middlesbrough vs QPR (H) The year is 2012, the headlines read:   "Queens Park Rangers have sacked manager Neil Warnock after a run of eight Premier League games without a win. The 63-year-old took charge at Loftus Road in March 2010 and led Rangers to promotion last season, but leaves with them lying 17th in the top flight."   Neil is left to stew in a fit of rage: after catapulting QPR into the Premier League, he's been sacked halfway through the next season before he could even recover from his new years hangover! He begins plotting his elaborate revenge, after 8 years and 6 (largely irrelevant) jobs later he finally has the chance to prove himself by keeping a relegation threatened team in the league, whilst doing it against the team that didn't believe he had that survival instinct in him. This is the story of Neil Warnock's redemption!   Matchday Information Sunday 2pm brings us a do or die clash as Warnock’s Boro failed to keep some momentum going against fellow basement dwellers Hull, the hiring of Warnock has failed to arrest the slump in matchday ticket sales as the attendance is staying steady around the 0 mark. We have home advantage for this, if that still makes a difference… After being excited about football starting again, I am now equally excited for football to be finished again. With QPR having nothing to play for - losing all 3 of their fixtures since the return - can we take advantage of their bad form and seemingly indifferent performances? The good news is that at this end of the table one positive result will give us a massive amount of breathing room.   The Reverse Fixture Earlier on in the season – We played to a 2-2 draw in a period of 10 games without a win. We’ll all be hoping that the Hull game isn't the start of a similar run of results. There’s only so many teams left who can let us off the hook by going into administration.   Injuries Both sides have a clean bill of health for this one.   View from the Opposition https://www.fansnetwork.co.uk/football/queensparkrangers/forum/260261/middlesbrough-sunday/#27   Questions Score predictions for this one? Lineups for the game? Will Warnock keep us safe? Will he be here next year if he does? Do we even deserve to stay up if we rely on other teams being handed points deductions? Do you prefer to have your Saturday ruined or your Sunday ruined?
