Over the years I have been able to watch the team I love beat some of the best sides in the country,

Apart from the  Wembley and cup games what is your favourite game that sticks in your memory,

I have a few the day we destroyed a good Man City team   4-1

Beating Wolves  5-1 then able to go home and watch the highlights again on TV.

Winning 2-0 against Sunderland the season they got to the cup final.

Trevor Wymark scoring when we beat Chelsea 2-0.

We have a great history so while we are all down in the dumps at the moment lets look back at the days you walked home after seeing our team show the big guns how to play good football and win.

There are many more games I could mention and I am sorry the younger fans who have only seen Town play in the last 15 years do not have much to choose from,

BUT

There must be one game you went home happy and proud.

Winning 3-2 at Stamford Bridge after being 2-0 down, the day the IRA bombed Harrods.

At home, beating Exeter 2-1 to clinch promotion to the 2nd tier. Hearts were in mouths when Shaun Taylor thumped the ball against the bar from a corner with just a few minutes left.

Mine is also Exeter, but May 1972 when we won 3-0 to clinch the 4th division title.

What a night that was! 24000 in the ground, incredibly; people on the Barratt stand roof, flags and banners being waved like mad and the atmosphere simply unbelievable. The town itself was in the grip of promotion fever, and even two of my aunties went to the game who don't like football.

The noise was incredible; the celebrations afterwards wild, and it is nights like that, that makes it all worthwhile in a way, but this current drought is wearing us all down.

What is also strange about it is that final game was a re arranged game due to the first one being postponed due to fog. I was in hospital at the time having my tonsils out and I looked out of the hospital window and it was bright sunshine, but it seems it was just the BP area that was enveloped in a thick sea mist.

Talk about fate. One day we will return - that 1972 night was after several years of decline so hope springs eternal.

Yes Exeter at home will take some beating for me. Forty of us hired a double-decker bus to take us from The Hainton Inn. On the way to the ground, the driver warned us that if we didn't stop bouncing the bus we'd have to get off and walk. What a day, pure nailbiting celebration. In the words of Clee band Orphan Boy for that day: Cockers knew!

Grimsby 3 Barnsley 2 Good Friday 1982.

Barnsley filled the Osmond-they were going for promotion to the old Division 1 and were in footie heaven when they went 2-0 up inside 20 minutes. No idea what the team talk at half time consisted of but Town were a different side second half. Whymark scored a belter. Waters ran midfield and Town won 3-2..


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

My first ever game. I often wonder how much happier I'd have been over the past 15 years if Town had finished the second half in the same way they did the first...

I'll throw in Town v Wrexham in 1990. Purely because Garry Birtles was something to behold that day. A shame you don't get as many top players in the lower leagues these days now that they all earn bi££ion$ before they're 28.
