With all this doom & gloom around at the moment.

What's your best GTFC memory?
I assume all the obvious one to come up, but mine has to be Accrington Stanley away. 2 - 0 down at HT won 3 - 2 a different team came out in that 2nd half.

What's yours?

Will always be final game in 71/72 against Exeter with 22,000 there, really feel for younger fans who do not at least have these memories to fall back on. Then again what you have never had you never miss

Beating the Pigs Sheffield Utd with a Drinkell hat trick was memorable

That Stanley game was very special as was Barnet. Scunny last season was probably the best since we have been in non league although Disleys goals against Huddersfield and Gateshead were both special even though we ended up losing them both. I was born in 96 and didn't really take an interest in Town until I was 10. My first proper season of supporting Town was the season Buckley returned. I will always have fond memory's of beating Lincoln 5-1 and coming from 1-0 down at Sincil bank to win 1-2 and winning 2-0 at Notts County away with 2000 town fans. I think for any Town fan under the age of 20 then getting out of this league will be the greatest feeling they have had whilst supporting Town.

Totally and utterly AMAZING night that!
Don't know if you were aware but that game wouldn't have happened if not for a famous Humberside fog that came in unexpectedly and caused the abandonment of the original game? I was at that one too! :>)

That was my first ever game when I was 7.

One of my personal highlights other than the obvious Everton, Newcastle, Liverpool and Wembley ones was the 4th Round Replay at Reading in 89. An amazing atmosphere at Elm Park that night. I thought that there would be a few hundred Town fans max but we filled that away end, there must have been about 1500 there along with a whole variety of different inflateables.

I can still picture the Town fans already celebrating the winner after Kevin Jobling had taken the ball around their keeper and just waiting for him to roll it into the empty net.

The Spurs game in 2005, can't believe that was nearly a decade ago.

Sheff Utd 4-0 League win
2 wins at Newcastle in 81/82
Middlesboro' FA Cup away

But actually most memorable was when we lost 5-0 at Anfield - with loads of Town fans in Kop....Kenny Dogfish, Jimmy Plaice.  Brilliant day.
