Just watched it and wept

Not one of today's squad would have got in that team

In those days we WERE spoilt!

They had spunk and balls back then!

Why not? Bogle has (not with much success it has to be said)

Bogles's probably the best example to use as to why not!

Beating Sheff U 4-0 in 1980 with a Kev Drinkell hat-trick. I was on a rare weekend in Gy at the time and didn't want to go back!

Quoted from Jackie Lewis
Bobby Cumming v Norman Hunter. Can't remember much else about the match but Bobby doing the old duffer over and over again was worth the money on its own.
Remember Tommy Watson trying to do the same to Stuart Pearce at Forest one year and coming off 2nd best

That'll be against Barnsley. Allan Clarke was playing for them also- think he was player manager.  Hunter finally lost his rag and threw a punch at Bobby, getting sent off. Bobby got up of the grass and winked at us in the crowd, with a big cheesy grin on his face.

As for my favourite game, it's the same as Barralad, when we beat Barnsley 3-2. Whymark, my favourite ever Town player, and Joe Waters scored he goals. Great memories.

Just watched the West Brom game again. The Bonetti goal seemed liked the least of our good play. So much pressure we really deserved that win, but at the game it seemed like it was going to be another one of those days when the opposition sneak a win. Until THAT shot went in. Talk about cathartic experiences. As an experience that goal was up there with Arnold's at Wembley for impact.

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.

Another game I enjoyed was vs Coventry at home in the rumbleows Cup.  I think we won 1-0 courtesy of a Garry Birtles stunning free kick.  I was stood on the bar in the ponny  and saw Birtles free kick curl into the top corner.  We lost the 2nd leg 3-0.  Drinkell played for them but didn't play in the 1st leg.

5-1 v WBA. I think we'd scored 1 goal (a pen) in the 6 games before then that season, then we were 4-0 up at half time. Lovely stuff.

Also really enjoyed the 3-0 v Gillingham in 2009. An indicator of the good times that were surely incoming under Mike Newell.
