The whole Wembley day against Bournemouth. Also Cov City away in the FA Cup (1969?). BP was my football experience up until then and I'd never seen so many people at a football match. I was enthralled even tho we lost 1-0 to a dodgy penalty scored by Grimsby-born Mick Coop.

Quoted from oldludensian
At home v Scunny circa 1990 Tuesday night game. 11 000+. They scored first and we scored twice in last 20 or so mins. I was in the ponny and still a schoolboy but the comaradary (sp) I felt that night as the goals went in lives with me to this day. Absolutely fanatastic night going completely mental with everyone else when we scored, jumping all over random people and being transported several rows in the process. Remember being totally out of breath, but having a massive smile on my face after each goal was scored such was the celebrations. Brilliant night that I'll never forget. Don't think I'll ever feel that way again about Town. Wembleys were good but this was the one stand out moment for me.

i have some fond memory of that era, was also a school kid at this time and totaly agree with this. spurs at home in 91 sticks out, never seen the ponny so rammed, except against Newcastle maybe the year we had put there million game winning streak to a end at st james park, was it jim dobin that scored?

The first Wembley game was just pure bliss (even the wobbly spell when Bournemouth scored). Choked when I saw that sweep of black and white stretch all around from Royal Box, round the end and a fair way up the other side.

But the other memory that sticks out now is my first ever game, surrounded by what seemed like a massive crowd. It probably just seemed that way cos I was surrounded by adults as I didn't want to go and stand by the fence with all the other kids. A real ding dong game which Town won 4-3 against Donny in what must have been the League Cup in 1971. A great way to catch the bug.

In no particular order:

Town 3 Exeter 0 (71/72 Championship clincher)

Town 1 WBA 0  (95? Bonetti's goal in what was supposed to be his last game for us)

Liverpool 1 Town 2 (2001)

Wimbledon 3 Town 6 (1980) On the way home BBC Radio called us the Liverpool of Division 3)

Town 3 Barnsley 2 (Good Friday game circa 82. Town 2-0 down inside about 25 minutes)

I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Everton away with it being virtually last minute winner and then walking past the dozens of coaches lined up outside

Chelsea 2 Town 3 Dec '83

After being locked in the basement of M&S in Oxford Street due to a bomb scare (Harrod's actually was bombed) I came out to try and get the tube to Fulham Broadway and due to many lines also being closed because of these threats got to the game just as it was kicking off

I couldn't get in the Town end behind the goal so had to go in the side stand with the Chelsea and of course them going 2-0 up I had to ask why I had bothered struggling to get there

But the outcome when we got three back and played them off the pitch has to be one of the best feelings ever watching Town.....to say I was bursting with pride is an understatement, but such a pity I couldn't celebrate as all around me were Chelsea fans losing their rag as their team lost the match!
