Think I'm second in terms of the year.

Old Codger way out in front in 1962;I was 1973 so says Erimus.

Mine was in March 1997. We beat Chelsea 1-0, with a goal from the little fella. I was only at the match cos I was on holiday in Durham with my mates, one of whom was a Chelsea fan. I didn't realise the team was in a relegation battle, but I loved the feverish atmosphere and I was an instant fan.

Within three months of attending my first Boro game, we'd lost two cup finals and been relegated. I've never been the same since.

Boro 4-2 Wolves 17/8/89

Slaven x2, Proctor, Davenport. 

Debuts to Alan Comfort & Trevor Putney & after this performance we Boro fans thought we were heading back to the 1st division

Thanks to a last home win of the season v the Geordies & Leeds beating Bournemouth to relegate them, survived, avoiding relegation with the skin of our teeth

    • Fletcher he has grown on me this season. That said theres been a fair few games recently where he has ball watched or jumped for a header knowing he was nowhere near it. When we had our mini revival though he looked a good player he battled and held up the ball well and could see theres a decent player there. But if hes not on his game hes like a rabbit in the headlights. However I dont see him as the guy who will score the goals to win promotion or save you from relegation which we really need him to be right now. 
    • He was NOT the fans choice. He was Gibson's choice and it was pretty clear before he was appointed that we did not want him as a manger or head coach. Our concerns were completely dismissed then, and are still being dismissed. This is not down to unrealistic expectations. Most have been highlighting a mid-table finish as what should be achievable with the players we have and now simply want to stay in the Championship - both of which would have been realistic under a manger with a basic level of competence.  People gave Woody time (way more time than they would have given anyone else) but that does not mean he was our choice.
    • Who’s knows where we’d be if Roberts didn’t get injured and McNair took away that penna...
    • It’s a loss in the sense that now Coulson will probably go back to Lb.  That essentially gets rid of any pace and attacking threat from the forwards.
