I think classicfooty is more interested in selling some programmes, and cares not a fig for fond memories

Fans holding up Billy Ayre after we won the play off semi final to reach Wembley. That memory lives on.

Not one for the purists but do other posters remember us playing Rotherham in the eighties

I think it was the L,D,V competition it was on a Tuesday we were getting beat 3-0 or 3-1 and it looked allover for us

Then the second half started and we started to play unbelievably well and beat them 4-3

I'll pick one the many Suddick benders. Decades before Beckham or any other practitioner of the art, he used to leave defenders and goalies baffled. Everyone in the ground knew what was about to happen. We even gave the defense a chance by chanting "ooo it's a bender" as soon as the free kick was given. We may as well have added "and there's fuck all you can do about it".

Stuffing the Dingles 5-2 at home also The Bamber Garner argument against Barnet in the second leg play-off at home. Running on the pitch when Mickey Walsh scored his goal of the season

I was there. Gary Brook, a local lad to me here in Yorkshire got a couple I think. We were 3-1 down at half-time.

1975. The Battle of Bloomfield

When a handful of gallant heroes took on The Red Army.



Pool hosted Man U in a div2 game. You had to be there to appreciate how brave those lads were.

I didn,t go to the Manure game but was on a no, 15 bus going to Derby baths that day

Thousands streamed out of North station and inevitably tried to turn the bus over

That game was the first that "benny " went to

He got a bloody nose loved it and took to football violence in a massive way

Surely the ultimate would be the Fred Pickering hat trick.

The Yeovil final

I was the only northerner and only Blackpool fan in a pub of Yeovil fans sat on my own in the corner smiling smugly and making the odd sarcastic comment to the Yeovil fans lol

For me it will probably always be the Semi against Nottingham Forest.

Surreal atmosphere. I have never heard noise like it.

That was like a library compared to St Andrews when Birmingham made it 2-2 in the play off semi. I have never heard noise so loud in my life, my ears were hurting.

I bravely watched that match lying on top of the bovril hut at the back of the east stand shitting myself.
