And obviously our history of making 2 semi finals but that was a long time ago.


I think Big Chris and Barralad went to both!

Haha.  I can remember being in the ponny during the 88 fa cup game vs Wolves.   They had Steve Bull and Andy Mutch two lethal strikers although I think SB was injured.  And the goal from Cockers atleast I think it was him.  We scored after having a corner. Then again I could be just making it up lol.

Chris took me in his car. I stood on an orange box in the boys enclosure


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

Yeah, we beat Wolves (who were Top of Division 3 at the time) 1-0 and the goal was indeed scored direct from a corner by Cockers. We then beat Rotherham (who were Top of Division 4 at the time) 3-2 before we won at Ayresome Park.

Quoted from Abdul19
We also beat Port Vale (also league 2) in 2011/12

The night Serge Makofo was a hero !  
Good night that.  
After that I think we screwed it up v Salisbury at home in the 2nd round...

Quoted from Rodley Mariner
I'm going to say it - Newey wasn't that bad. We've certainly had loads worse in the past ten years.

?


Until reading this thread I never knew Neweys first name was Tom. Probably brainwashed over the years by the gent who sits behind me. Always thought his name  was 'flipping' Newey!

I felt he cost us lots of goal because he rarely stopped a cross, he always stood off then blamed the central defenders if/when we conceded.
Not the tallest but had some reasonable games in the centre of defence where he was playing a lot for Oxford. He doesn't seemed to have played since the 5-1 defeat at Cambridge but don't know if that is after being dropped or injured

Fair play to newey (and toner) they got a round in for a few of us in the Punch and Judy after the franchise scum match.


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

Quoted from Les Brechin


88/89 when we beat Middlesborough at Ayresome Park when we were 4th bottom of Division 4 and they were top half of Division 1. We then beat Division 3 Reading in a replay before bowing out to Wimbledon.

The 3-0 replay win over West Ham in 95/96 when Laws and Bonetti shook hands on the pitch. We then drew with Chelsea before losing at Stamford Bridge.

97/98 when we beat top flight Norwich 3-0 at home before losing at Leeds.

Not really done much since then though apart from last season.


I remember that game bit rough in the terraced side streets after the match, their manager a scot his name escapes me got sacked the next day
