I wonder if in a few years time we'll be saying .......can you remember when Town hammered Morecambe 7-0 when we were shiite and it kick started our season and we got promoted.

Or am I just living in cloud-cuckoo-land ?

Exeter may 1972 , my first game sat on my dad's shoulders all game nearly crippled him we stood in the constitutional corner well he stood .


Having been a regular that season I decided not to go into the increasingly claustrophobic Barrett Stand and I too stood in that corner and when Matt Tees rose to head a goal and I think we won 3-1 we went mad, what a game.

So many great games and memories identified above.  Shame that we have to watch a lot dross as well.

I also remember a run of the mill game against Shrewsbury at home  in 1981 or 1982.  It was played in a snowstorm.  The expectation of a decent game was low.  It even finished 0-0.

However, I remember that the match exceeded all expectations and was enjoyable in the snow.

It’s at Blundell Park tomorrow PP not fantasy island.

Given this lots of thought as despite our recent decline there has been lots to choose from but it’s got to be Town 4 Sheff U 0 to win the old 3rd Division. Hat trick for a heroe against a Yorkshire side too..... “ Such a Perfect Day”!

Fulham 0 Town 1.  January 2000

Absolutely bloody freezing, Lester (I think) scored our goal completely against the run of play, and Fulham attacked non-stop, hitting the bar, posts, ball being cleared off the line. It just went on and on and on. I'd never seen such a one sided game and we held on heroically to win it. It was absolutely hilarious. I remember Karl Heinz Riedle in particular getting more and more furious and disbelieving until he was virtually in tears at the unfairness of it all. Nowhere near our best performance ever but certainly one of the most enjoyable games I've ever been to, aside from the frostbite.

Got bloody soaked through that day. But warmed up in a massive pub on a corner site (vaguely remember Town fans singing) before rolling off to the Eight Bells.

Quoted from barralad
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.


We were a class apart that day too. Groves got a hat trick in the first 30 minutes. Not sure who got the fourth - Tony Rees?

Would have been around September 1992. Groves' first season.

There's a video of the game. Unbelievable passing.

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


My memory these days are awful lol.  but know that you mentioned it I do recall Rees getting sent off and Drinks scoring for them, did Drinks sign for them after the first leg?
