One of those goals that I remember as if it was scored yesterday - packed out with Town fans on the Barnsley Kop End. Fantastic memories

What a great post, as a football mad teenager it was a great time to be a Town supporter.

I’d absolutely echo all of the above and add that the season in question was actually a result of some great building by the club over a few years both in terms of bringing on local talent and the odd player like Joe who’d not made it at a “bigger club” but also the work Alec King did to get the players out in the local factories and community which very quickly lifted the good Will and engagement after a relegation season.

Memories I’ll never forget, they’ll stick with me forever.

People say the game is faster now but it looked bloody quick at Barnsley that day, and physical too. A great day out and a treat to see Bobby C. in his pomp again.

Quoted from A.l.f.
Yes - your post brought back so many happy memories, the main one being sat in the big stand with the Wolves regulars at the end of full time prior to extra time.  Seeing my black and white scarf, many Wolves fans declared that we were by far the best team that we'd played so far that season.  We battered them in extra time but just couldn't find the winner.
The last match against Sheff Utd was the most one sided game ever and should have been about 12-0 not 4-0.
What a great team we had at that time.


F'king Wolves!!  

They battered me before the game behind the goal where we were gathered... bar stewards!!  

Kicked the living daylights out of me but it didn't stop me getting up and going in to see us nearly get what would have been a well deserved win

I'm convinced if we'd got past them and in to the semi final ( to play Swindon if I remember correctly ) we'd have made our first ever Wembley appearance quite a few years earlier than we actually did

I was 15 at the time and that 1st replay was my first experience of real footy violence. There were some right nasty illegitimates out that night from both Wolverhampton and Grimsby.

Tell me about it Les

It was the day after I’d left home to live down south

Drove from MK after work on the Tuesday evening & parked up no problem at all

No colours on me but I asked a couple of what I thought were ok Wolves fans how to get to our end

Followed their directions and fell into a trap where I got ambushed and can’t remember too much after getting an almighty kick on my temple

Came around and saw a cop who unbelievably frisked me before he let me in the ground & told me to look out later on

A good night footballwise but an alarming wake up call for me as to the violence that went on back then

When you consider we had 3 of the best strikers in that league at the time, 2 who went on to be England Under 21 internationals.
We WERE spoilt.
