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

    • Randolph Nsue Ayala Gibson Friend De Roon Forshaw Traore Fischer Negredo Stuani/Bamford
    • To be awkward, because, well, I am awkward, I decided not to include the Premier League season.  Being honest about it, Negredo is easily the best forward from this decade in terms of quality.  Even players like Chambers, Fischer, Espinosa, would probably walk into many of the teams we fielded over the decade.  Given that many of those players did bugger all really, I don't want to pick them so it's Championship players only.                Randolph Fabio  Ayala Gibson Friend          Clayton Leadbitter                  Robson Adomah                Ramirez                 Bamford   It was tougher than I thought really.  GK was easy enough for me as it was really between Randolph and Given and Randolph has been pretty much our best, most consistent player since he signed for us.  Right back was a toughy.  I don't think any of them were especially good for any length of time.  I almost snuck Rhys Williams in there to get him into the side but he wasn't that good as a right back so I didn't.  Hoyte, McMahon, Varga, Fredericks, Kalas, Nsue, Christie, Fabio, Shotton, Howson.  In the end I cheated slightly and selected Fabio as I think he was probably the better player out of that lot.  Nsue probably should have been chosen though as he played more games.  Central defenders speak for themselves.  Maybe could have looked at Williams here because when he was fit, healthy and on top of his game, he was a good player or Wheater before he left but they are not in the same class as that partnership was for us.  Friend is obvious at left back, great value signing and played for a lot of the decade. In midfield, I was a big fan of Robson and would have liked to see him playing in better sides.  I think he'd have done ok for Karanka for example.  But you also have to respect the job that Leadbitter and Clayton did as well so I ended up selecting all three.  I didn't think that the likes of Arca, Butterfield, Whitehead, Bailey, McEachran or the more recent lot had done enough to get into the side. The attacking players were a bit tricky as well.  Adomah I would say is the easiest choice as he did well for us over 3 seasons.  Bamford is the best striker I've seen playing for us in the Championship so would have to select him ahead of Lita, McDonald, Emnes, Juke, Nugent, Assombalonga etc.  I didn't like selecting Ramirez as he only had a 6 month spell with us in the Championship and I think he's a *** but he did have a big impact in that time and he was a good player.  I suppose Tomlin, Traore, and one or two others might have cause to grumble about not being selected but I feel Ramirez had a bigger impact than them. I reckon that team gets promoted fairly comfortably.
    • Well, I'd guess Assombalonga, Randolph, Fry, McNair, Tavernier would probably have higher values than say Ayala, Howson, Shotton, Clayton etc given contract lengths and ages.  So I'm assuming the first group is where the sales would come from if it's highest fees were looking for rather than the second group?
