I know we had the TBWAH thread but this relates to the year we had in division two.
I remember being at Villa when relegation was all but confirmed and that was pretty tough. But what a year we had, so many memories,
Blackpool on the Prom, Bristol 9 Millwall home and away.
My personal favourite was Mansfield away. Train up and the double decker busses to the ground. Pissing rain and 3.3. What a day.
And then Brighton away when it all kicked off

Thoughts and memories?
 
Memories?
- Burnley at home. 3-0. Pissing with rain and my wife throwing up on the shelf.
- Bristol Rovers at home. 9-0. Couldn’t be arsed to go. Regretted it ever since.

A bit off topic, but I just remembered that I was at the Wigan game in 2009-10. It ended 9-1 and when Kranjcar scored our 9th in 90+4 my son went nuts. Turned out he’d bet on Kranjcar getting the last goal.

Nine goals and we still couldn’t keep a clean sheet ffs. Nothing’s changed. Well, apart from us scoring goals.

Oh the memories!
 
Long before my time but I read a very good book called Glory, Glory Gone recently that covered the decline of the Bill Nick era, the Terry Neill fiasco, the relegation and the subsequent revival under Burkinshaw. Great read that did a lot to satisfy my curiosity about the club during this period.

Thanks for the tip. Look forward to finding a copy.
 
loved that season, me a few mates went to all the home games and many of the away, memories of the games nave faded now
remember having bet with a mate Spurs would go up & west ham would go down *they were in first div then)
up until the easter we were nailed on to go up, and then it was a last game draw at southampton that got both of us up we were 3rd (from what I remember there was hardly any shots and the players sof both teams eemed to play for the draw (maybe the captains had agreed something ?)
 
Brilliant season.
Went to every home game, except Millwall as my Dad wouldn't take me to that one( was 9/10),
and Orient away.Anyone that went that season,enjoyed it . And the reunion at the Coach& Horses the other year shows ,that people still have very fond memories of it.
 
The season i saw my first game, Palace away a 2-1 win. Loved that season but overiding memory is nearly blowing it in the last few weeks and also the 9-0 Bristol Rovers match. Got a signed programme with all of the squad from that season knocking about somewhere.

Their goal was cast iron handball though.
 
A season never to be forgotten.
Went to all the home games and all the London aways, plus Luton and Southampton.
Paid £7 for a £1 ticket off a tout at Waterloo before the Soton game.
Funnily enough, it was Mansfield who I think gave us our hardest home game that season.
Played us off the park and missed a penalty that day.
Was right in line with Don Mac's header at the Paxton when he scored against Bolton. I can remember more action from those games back then, then ones from a few years back.
Old is gold.

Used to go in the Billet before the Stow.
Always remember the graffiti outside by the door.
A West Ham fan had written "We will return"
Underneath a Spurs fan had daubed "When"
Took 'em three seasons to get back.

Don Mc was a hero to 10 yo me
 
Bit before my time, but the away following spurs took to eastville to play Bristol rovers has not been forgotten.

Rovers had had run ins with Southampton, Chelsea and Millwall (the bbc documentary) but spurs away support that day surpassed all and that’s rovers fans telling me who were there.

It was all about taking the home end. Spurs didn’t need to they had enough to fill the whole city that day.

The only time that season when I went into the North Stand!!

:harrylol:
 
I remember lots of clubs raising their game against us, esp the London derbies

Charlton 2-1, we lucked out with being awarded pens
Blackpool 2-2, I arrive 2 mins late and found we were 2-0 down
we scored in injury time in each half. Blackpool were riding high at the time and then fell off a cliff and got relegated

Bolton 2-2 in the cup and Hoddle scoring the best goal that Jimmy Armfield ever saw. 30 seconds later we conceded the most scrappy fucking goal. Typical.

Some crowds over 50,000
