Your 1st Boro game

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately I can't remember mine, late 1971 was when my dad 1st took me, I remember my 1st FAC match, which was the 18th January 1972 v Man City, Boro won 1-0 courtesy of a John Hickton goal 

My 1st away game was v Preston 11th November 1972, Boro winning 1-0, again, big John getting the only goal of the game

1990 the Zenith Data Systems Cup Final at Wembley. I didn’t even have a ticket but managed to blag my way in, the exuberance of youth I suppose. My only problem was that I ended up in the Chelsea end behind the goal. Bernie Slaven nearly got me killed when he hit the outside of the post around the 65th minute. I reacted in an obvious way and the Chelsea fans turned on me. I had to be rescued by the Steward’s and got thrown out 😂😂😂

Can't remember the year maybe Erimus you can.

Was a League Cup game ,a night game against Stoke City, we lost 2-1. Early seventies I think.

6th November 1973, League Cup 3rd round replay, we lost 2-1 after extra time

Alan Foggon scored our goal, 26,000 there

Boro vs Norwich 3-3. I had a soft spot for Norwich back then as I loved the colour green so my loyalties were split that game celebrating both teams goals.

smogsterking, final game of our relegation season, Andy Collett made his home debut in goal, his 2nd appearance, he made his away debut the previous week at Sheff Weds in a 3-2 Boro win

I think Norwich finished 3rd that season, qualifying for Europe

I had been to a home game against Bolton in the 90s at the Riverside which I only remember walking back from 'cause it was *** down. And I think I went to a 0-0 draw against Charlton in the early 2000s with a school trip.

But I always think of the 5-3 against Brum after the Cup win as my first proper game, though.

My first game was May 6th 1980 against Liverpool.  A birthday treat from my uncle. My 8th birthday.

I don't remember much of the game other than thinking football was a fantastic game at night (still prefer a night game to this day) and the total madness when we scored (Shearer) in the last few minutes.

Middlesbrough 1-0 Liverpool

Old Codger, totally agree, I said to my son & daughter when taking them to their 1st games at the Riverside, once the Boro break your heart they have you for life

    • Boro flashback this day the 9th April 1988 Boro v Man City Boro's last home game was a 6-0 thrashing of Sheffield United, on top of that the mighty Boro have not been beaten home,, or away since 27th February 1988 when we went down 2-0 at Bradford On the last home game when scoring 6 Stuart Ripley bagged a hattrick, he carried on where he left off by opening the scoring as Boro took the lead, Gary Hamilton increased the lead, Man City pulled a goal back but the mighty Boro held on to keep the points on Teesside & continue the challenge keeping pace the running pack for promotion Bruce's team  Stephen Pears  Gary Hamilton - wearing No2 for the 1st time that season Colin Cooper - Ever present Tony Mowbray - Ever present Gary Parkinson - Ever present Gary Pallister - Ever present Bernie Slaven - Ever present Stuart Ripley  Trevor Senior  Paul Kerr - Ever present Mark Burke Stay safe 
    • I think but not 100%, they have built and now moved into a house near Manchester. 
    • Fully recovered (bar my sense of smell and taste) and back in work! 
    • Over the last few years I seem to remember pictures of them building a bigger house, which I don't think was this one.. So maybe they've just finally moved into it.
    • Surely the specialist would be to replace George, then the expected squad player would be to replace Johnson - so you may as well keep him.
