    Memories @ramtique

    Even Rod Thomas & Toddy scored in that one !! First league win of that season IIRC. (Although we'd beaten Finn Harps 12-0 in the UEFA)

    I agree, but it was a team in transition. Circa 1977/78 season I'd guess. Nish, George, Todd & Rioch were soon to be moved on. Middleton was a crap goalie & a Forest reject at that. Masson, Ryan, Curran & Hughes all departed within months of their arrival. Roy was struggling with injuries by then. Only Dave Langan & Steve Powell were really consistent for the next couple of years or so. Talk about no continuity. ..........But then again we were managed by that clown Tommy Docherty.

    Johnson is so frustrating. He can have have a couple of good games like Brentford & Man U which make you think 'yes, we've finally got the player we paid £6m for'. He then chucks all that away by having 4 or 5 stinkers.

    Didn’t Cloughie used to let Reg have a fag at half time in the dressing room?

    Night matches at the BBG were fantastic occasions in the early seventies. Coming from Chesterfield I had to leg it back to the station for the last train which left at 10 past 9 . This meant leaving the ground around 15-20 minutes from the end of the match. Gut wrenching ! It wasn't until I was old enough to drive that I saw a whole game at night, & that was around 1977, just as the bad times were starting. 2 night games from the early seventies give particularly great memories. The first one was the last game of the season against Liverpool in May 1972, the game that ultimately won us the league. I was 13 years old & in the kids pen with a couple of school mates (1 a neutral & the other a Liverpool fan who kept quiet). We had to leave just after McGovern got the winner, otherwise there were all sorts of consequences to face, it was around 10 to 9. My abiding memory is of around 3,000 scousers locked outside the ground who had travelled without tickets. It was only when I got home at around half 10 that my mum & dad (who weren't football fans) confirmed that we'd won. A week later the Leeds & Liverpool results went our way & we were champions of England ! Unfortunately I missed out on tickets for the Benfica & Juventus games but managed to get one for Real Madrid in 1975. By now I was a fully grown up adult of 16. Me & a mate were on the Ossie end for that fantastic occasion., but had to leave for the last train at 3-1, thus missing Charlie's penalty for his hat trick. Got to see it on Sportsnight when we got back though. I'm 60 now & still get the buzz of going to the Rams, all home & some away. There's been some good & a lot of bad since those times but nothing can take away the memories. Thanks for bringing some of them back on this thread loweman 2.

    Yeah I was there too. He got the winner in an uninspiring FA Cup 5th round tie. Nothing unusual in that though. Rioch used to kick the poo out of everybody. He was our ‘minder’. Great player though, with a mean left peg.

    Agree, but can’t pass to one of our players to save his life though
