Thanks for that moosey. Don't often agree with ipswin but that does have the eyes pricking with emotion. God we were good then. That, mr hurst, was when we were spoilt! I still maintain that the period up to Xmas under laws was the best football I've ever seen town play in 45 years of supporting them.
Exeter at home was awesome but for sheer emotion bonetti was best !
I was also at the Chelsea 3-2 win in the pouring rain on that open terrace. Going home to Aylesbury on the train with my CFCs supporting friends was just wonderful! They were very very quiet safe to say.
I will throw a left field one in, which was a sparkling Jewel in the barren desert of non league.
A win away at Cambridge quite late in the season mid week. Frankie artus had the game of his life and we played some absolutely brilliant stuff. Completely played them off the park.
3 other ones are bonetti s debut at charlton where we had this wonderful dawning feeling that we'd just signed a magician
Wba away good friday(?) Luke cornwell scored with about our only chance .total backs to the wall and got a completely undeserved but vital win
And if we are allowing play off games Fulham away in the blazing sunshine at craven cottage

So many games in the 80's where we were exciting powerful and a joy to watch but if i had to choose one, it would be 4-0 against man City in 1980 i think at home.  
Simply the most one sided game ive ever seen and how it wasn't double figures i'll never know.
Would like to see some hightlights from that game again.

That Laws period was a good one, gets overlooked due to other headline events in his reign but his side played as good as the Buckley 2 98 era IMO, my favourite football would still be the Buckley 1 era though i think.
The evolution of video highlights was very much on the up at that time, Roly and John's commentaries were hilarious and we were flying on the pitch with a great squad of grafters mixed with quality and experience.
Plus you could rub shoulders with the players most weekends as they lived local and were out and about on the Town. Special times

Quoted from Meza
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.


If I recall correctly we beat Coventry 3-1 at home which meant we had a pretty good lead going to their place for the 2nd leg

It all went wrong when Tony Rees was sent off just after the kick off so 10 v 11 for most of the return leg - inevitable that they'd take advantage but what made it worse was Drinks scoring for them on what I think might have been his debut

Can i just say that this is the sort of thread i joined the forum for. So many of the negative threads seem to be made up of repetitive negative bile.....though i'd die in ditch to defend free speech so please don't misinterpret this.
But this sort of thread..well i'd just say every single post is from 'supporters'. I've had my memory jogged by so many of the games mentioned.....particularly as i have remembered being at virtually all of them! Thanks to all who have contributed. Loving it and keep it going.

For all the games I've seen, the emotions I've felt, there was something very special about beating Notts County 2-1 last season, the way it panned put and score with virtually the last touch of the game to save our league status...probably memorable for all the wrong reasons because we should never have been in the state we were, but I'll remember that feeling and that game for a ling time to come...so wish we had the positivity now that we felt after that game...

Like many hard to pick one but a good number go back to my teens and the transformation of our poor late 60’s team, a few memories:

1 v Cambridge in late 1970 and the return of Sir Matt with a return debut goal and 5000 added to the gate

2 v Scunthorpe 4-1 hot day first game of season, Sir Matt hat trick and a great McMenemy season was underway

3 v Norwich league cup October 1971 my first experience of 22000 in BP unbelievable

4 v Exeter last game of that season another 22000, a Chatterley special and fantastic celebration

5 FA Cup 1973 and nearly 20000 fans travel to Coventry, trip from Rasen took 5 hours

6 Final one was Sheffield United 4-0 Drinkell hat trick final game, another great crowd and league winning celebration.

Life at BP used to be a real treat and there are so many more but none too many in last 18 years Spurs win aside.

Another game which is off the general radar which sticks in my mind is a 4-1 away win at Luton in the early 90s. Paul Groves was unplayable that day. I think he scored all Town's goals.


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

If it's the game I'm thinking about, we played in yellow and Grovesy got a hat-trick.
