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

    • Don't be impressed then, just be happy with a 7-0 win like I said. In the past 18 months England have made it to the World Cup semi finals and the Nations League finals.  That's better than a lot of good teams including - Spain, Belgium, Argentina, Germany, Italy and plenty of others.  We lost to Croatia after extra time in a game we probably should have won by half time and Holland after extra time in a game that we could have won but obviously didn't.  To get to the Nations League finals we had to beat both Spain and Croatia and to get to the World Cup semi finals we had to beat both Colombia and Sweden, who are both decent sides.  I think we're a better team now than we were in the World Cup as well.  We lost to Belgium in the group stage and then again the third place play off but we changed the team for both of those games, rightly or wrongly.  So whilst we did lose the games, we also didn't give either of them our best shot. Against the mighty Kosovo we won 5-3, my memory is fine.  Winning and scoring 5 goals sounds pretty good to me.  The mighty Kosovo have lost twice this year - to us and 2-1 against Czech Republic.  They've also beaten the Czech Republic and drawn with Denmark so they aren't a terrible side by any means. France have won a few trophies over the past few decades.  They've also been a better team than us over the last few decades as have Spain so that seems fair enough to me. Our much lauded attacking line up has done fine unless we don't count putting 3 past Spain and beating Croatia?  During the world cup we weren't playing like this so it's really only post the world cup that we've had the opportunity to see it in action and so far it's done pretty well.  When it gets tested against better teams next year we'll see how it goes then of course. We've put 3 past Spain, 5 past Czech Republic, 6 and 4 past Bulgaria, 5 and 7 past Montenegro and 5 past Kosovo in the last year or so.  I'm not sure it's fair to call them all minnows and if you look around there aren't many teams doing that with the same regularity.  Montenegro the other night weren't a pub side, we are the only team who have stuffed them over the past 3 or 4 years and that includes games against Denmark, Poland, Romania, Czech Republic, Hungary, Turkey and Serbia.  We're a much better side than them but they aren't hopeless and have been competitive against decent sides other than us. I don't see the relevance between a video game on the easiest setting and England.  We're not playing San Marino, Andorra etc, the teams we are playing are better than that, and as I pointed out above, we've done ok even in competitive games against good opposition.
    • Cardiff appoint ex Miillwall boss Neil Harris as their new manager. 
    • Ayala was identified by Mowbray and the loan signing went through at the time of his sacking, he definitely wasn't a Venus signing. Karanka was in charge when we signed him permanently but he had nothing to do with us identifying Ayala initially. 
    • Sorry @Erimus74. Did not see your post. I dont think any are out of contract in jan but following 6 are out of contract come the summer.  Shotton, Ayala, Friend, Howson Johnson, Rudy. Suggestion is Clayton could be 7th one also out of contract but we might have an option to extend his. That option lies with us and not Clayton apparently.
    • Totally agree @wilsoncgp. I am also at a loss to explain reason why but i am also not too bothered why other clubs are not going for him because given his stats for last few season and fact he has 6 months left on his contract means the financial risk attached with him could not be lower. He already has 9 goals and 6 assists from midfield this season meaning he almost averaging a goal/assist every game. And as @DanFromDownSouth said. He is exactly the type of player our team currently lacks imo.
