Old memories of Man utd

Post by Billy Bonds boots » Wed Sep 18, 2019 1:59 pm

1986 Frank mcaveennies looped header over Gary Bailey to win 3 - 2 sending us wild and upsetting the mancs seated above us mainly cockney reds
Also 1985 I think fa cup Norman Whiteside
Will never forget the support up there non stop singing could not hear them at all result did not matter ( lost 4-2 )
And finally biggest travesty of all league cup Mark ward free kick 35 yards out screamer disallowed as it was indirect and never touched anyone on the way in
Yet Bailey finger tipped it in. Miss the days big time.

Four nil in the snow ! should have been five but a perfectly good one disallowed
Steaming Sir Carlton, Ronaldoesque Jonathan Spector performance.

One one to stop them winning the league in abt 92 Ludo v them awesome goalkeeping !
Kenny Brown hitting the winner when we played with indecent effort according to Fergie
100mph penalty from Dicksie in a 2 2
Paolo Di canio goal Barthez hand raised off side one nil win in the FA Cup
All great memories !

Di Canio, 76th minute.

Defoe's winner there the following season under Roeder.

Defoe goal being disallowed despite being three yards onside.

Marco Boogers.

John Moncur kicking the ball into touch straight from the kick off.

Lomas' bullet header in the 5-3. Beckham's goal in the same game (I think) in front of the BML.

Felipe Anderson's legitimate goal being ruled out.

Nolan strike ruled out for being the width of a toe offside by an eagle-eyed lino.

The push on Randy to earn them an FA Cup replay at the Boleyn (which they won).

Just winding myself up now...

1975. I'll just add that it was the most explosive atmosphere I've ever known at a football match (which is quite some statement).

I think it was 1968, not long after my dad died and a friend of his took me to watch the game. Locked out but some kind souls opened up the gates to the northbank at half time (exit gates not the turnstiles) and we walked in. I could see absolutely nothing but we did draw 0-0.

Lots of other memroies of games with them but the 2016 cup games and Upton Park Finale are still surrounded in my mind by a warm fuzzy glow.

The year after the infamous 6-1 defeat at home which won them the title, Colin Mackleworth in goal for us.
My first memory of wide scale hooliganism, the Mancs were running amok, fighting with anyone they could find vandalising everything in site, jumping on cars etc.
It was something that a lot of fans never forgot and led indirectly to the clash of 1975 (mentioned above) and beyond.
Certainly for years we took a bigger mob to Old Trafford then any other Northern or Midland outpost.
A scary old day for an 11 year old.

No mate, that was definitely 1967. I remember it well because I was 11 as well. I was with a mate (also 11)
who got hit with a bottle. Fortunately not hurt too badly.
In one of the hoolie books there's a photo of the St. John's Ambulance man (no paramedics in them days!) leaning over treating my mate. I'm next to them. Just out of the photo.
As you say it was one of the first real explosions of football violence in this country (although it had happened before, even in Victorian times).
But it was very scary and certainly did have a bearing on the 1975 riot.

2-1 win against them at the BG between Christmas and New Year in the 2007/8 season at a guess? Ronaldo missed a penalty at 1-0 to them - Anton equalised and Upson scored the winner shortly afterwards.

I always thought my very first game was Manchester United 5 West Ham 2 but I could have been wrong , either that or Everton away . :)

Clyde Best shoving Ian Ure in the face and running on to cross for Geoff Hurst to head past Stepney - 2nd goal was similar but I was too small for a clear view [ aged 13 ] .

Edit - I've just found the match on youtube and while I sort of remembered the Clyde Best / Geoff Hurst goal , that was the second goal , Hurst had scored our first goal during the first half [ 3-1 ] - Best didn't fend off Ure like I thought he had , the commentator said the player was Fitzpatrick . Memories eh ?


p.s. I was stood around 2 rows back from where Clyde Best first goes past Fitzpatrick .

Who else was there in the pissing rain in 1964 to see our marvellous 3-1 win at Hillsborough in 1964 at the FA Cup semi final against these ? We played them the week before at UP in a League match in totally different conditions and lost
