We were on our way to Anfield for what was to become one of the most famous nights in our history. I'll never tire of seeing this goal.

It was one of those very rare moments when time stood still before everyone realised what had happened and then all hell broke loose in the away end packed with 7000 delirious stripies. Sadly, I doubt we'll ever see those times again.

I was on holiday in Majorca and didn't know the score. Saw a scouser next morning and he said the game had gone to extra time but he too didn't know the score. Asked one of the receptionists if she had computer access and she said yes, so I asked her if she could find out the score for me. A minute later she told me the score and I just started crying buckets. Went all over the hotel and the grounds trying to find the scouser to share my joy with him, but to no avail!


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

My top game since I first started supporting Town in 1970.
There have been so many great games but was never so proud to be a Town fan  

Even more depressed about where our once great club is now  


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

That's the only problem about reminiscing about the good times is that it makes you even more upset about our plight now. At least we've seen all the good times we've had though unlike a lot of clubs.
