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 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

    • I was just reading over the summer transfer window thread and I had one or two things to say about this in the summer 😡😀 I also found these two old posts of mine which I feel deserve to be highlighted for their prescience: From the 25th of June: I suspect that if Woodgate intends on us being a pressing / passing team (or whatever his intentions may be for us), that the majority of the players who are already here will be the players playing the bulk of the games.  I think we also have to consider that we must be desperate to get rid of some players and maybe we need to do that first before we sign their replacements?  And you've got to think that the likes of McNair, Tavernier and Fletcher are going to be used a lot more.  I wouldn't say they are like new signings or anything like that but I would see McNair as an obvious replacement for Besic and Tavernier to be used possibly in a variety of ways.  Fletcher takes one of the wide attacking positions and what are we looking for, another wide attacker and a full back or two?  I'm not saying that's how I'm looking at it, I'm just trying to look at it from the club's point of view.  So if we're only looking for a few players then things are more likely to be quiet as compared to previous windows. And even earlier on the 14th of June: It's part of our new philosophy.  Instead of having loads of right backs and one left back we are going to have loads of left backs and one right back. It's all change at Boro.   Absolutely nailed it, hurrah! ✌️ People really need to stop arguing with me now and just accept that I'm always right.
    • I think its, we're having to throw young players in desperate to make an impression and overdoing it
    • The bulk of the money the club owes is to Gibson O'Neill so he won't be putting us into administration.  Our outgoings are too high and really administration isn't going to help much with that.  We either have to reduce costs or increase revenue.  It's easier to do the former than the latter although selling some players will obviously help with that.  That's what we're doing at the moment.
    • The possibility that Gibbo is gradually winding things up in preparation for administration has occurred to me. I've been trying to push the thought away since the summer. There has been a lot of "woe is me, I've been doing everything by the rules and all these other mean clubs are cheating and making it impossible for us to compete financially" stuff coming out since last Spring. If he spins a good enough tale then a lot of fans will still see him as a hero for saving the club in 86 and giving them all these extra years. We get annoyed on here about all the lies and spin which come out of the club, but there are a lot of fans who lap it all up and believe everything they are told.
