Another game that sticks out for me in that season was Town 3 Portsmouth 4

I wasn't even at that game as I was down south but remember score flashes coming through with us coming back equalising at the death and then from reports we went pushing for a win and lost it going for the 3 points

I just remember being bitterly disappointed that our push for promotion to the top flight showed the first signs of stuttering...more or less confirmed a month or so later when we lost away to the massive Sheff Weds

Nonetheless good days following Town....the anticipation and the optimism that we could maybe achieve something can't be beaten


I can remember that game too. I think Mark Hateley got a couple for Pompey that day. We were on quite a decent unbeaten run in the league at the time of the game, the previous time we lost in the league was AT Portsmouth. During that unbeaten league run we did lose one other game though, in the FA Cup to...........Portsmouth.

A few appearances too on MOTD that season. Sheff Wed away, home v Man City, just 2 off the top of my head.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Not going to be the biggest but I can vividly remember when we played Sunderland at home when we were in the old Third Division in 87/88. It was the season we were relegated under Bobby Roberts. It was towards the end of the season and Sunderland were top of the league and it was said that they were bringing around 7000 for the game. The attendance 7001!!

The game was also memorable for Gary Bennett scything down Shaun Cunnington in the area and getting away with it.

Newcastle brought a huge following when they won the Championship in May 1993. I was in the Main Stand that night and was surrounded by Geordies....


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

One of the noisiest nights at BP. I was in the Upper Findus and could hear the Geordies more than Town fans. The fact they were all over the ground makes it hard to estimate their numbers. Leeds in 82 brought about 8000 if I remember correctly but they were mostly all together. Newcastle in 93 may have had similar number (think BP held around 15,000 in the early 90s).

I remember the Chelsea game, I have always thought that the ref bottled it and gave them a penalty to let them win. (not bitter or twisted at all  ). I was a lower findus season ticket holder, but when I arrived at the ground the stewards made us all go into the pontoon as they had given our stand to Chelsea. They initially gave them the Osmond half of the stand and left the other half empty, but it soon filled up as the police didnt want ticketless Chelsea fans wandering around Grimsby. I was knarked with Ramsdens, who were on the board at the time, if not Chairing it, they successfully got the police to shut all the pubs near the ground, and then sold cans of beer from their supermarket to the Chelsea fans. There were loads of Chelsea fans there that day, if I remember correctly Chelsea were already up, but had to beat us to go up as champions. Dont know how many Chelsea were there but I remember thinking that if it kicks off today its going to be fun getting home, but as it happens it was ok. It makes me pine for those days again, good opposition week after week, cracking football.
