I am constantly amazed at the details of games which some on here seem to remember. Me, I have great difficulty remembering who scored a couple of home games ago. Some of you folks can remember facts and incidents from obscure games from way back. What is the secret, how do you do that?

I can not remember a few games ago either,

Ask me what happened in the 60's and Its right there,

There is a word for this,

BUT

I can not remember what it is.

I have that problem too!

I think if we are realistic about looking back, for me anyway, there are scores of incidents and goals that stuck in my mind in vivid detail but they took place in hundreds of games that I watched in different places. So as a percentage, the actual memories I can bring to mind from all those games is quite small. That means there's not a lot going to stick in the memory from the past few seasons and if it does it won't be a particularly happy memory in any case! That's my theory anyway.



“If all mankind minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.”

No doubt there are some which look it up on the internet before they post and then claim they are some sort of statto when they do.

I remember all of the 98/99 season, it was my first year as a town fan and loved every match. I guess when you enjoy it and the team are doing well then it sticks. Funny I remember the first half of the opening Mike Newell season against Cheltenham. The second half of that game and subsequently the rest of that season have been eradicated from my mind

There are certain things that just stick in the mind but I must admit that Google and The Fishy results database are very handy tools.

Memory comes with interest. Key Town games are etched into the memory.

I am sure that most footy fans can remember many of the football scores on a Sat night (after hearing the results once).  

On the other hand, what man can remember what his wife or girlfriend asked him to do 5 mins before?

I went to a lot of away games in days gone by and had many great memories. It seemed to be easy to remember those more than the home games because an away day was a big event.

This.

The benefit of supporting Town over the last couple of decades is that with so many lows you wish to forget, you free up so much memory space to remember the sparse good times.  

Bar Slade's second season, I've a really poor memory of anything Town related since about 2001.   Groves scored against Fulham on the final day....Jevons against Barnsley.....Reddy....Connell....Hearn......few Lincoln wins....nah, that's it.
