What's the most memorable league match you've been to?

Recommended Posts

1968 Owls 5   european cup holders 4.

 

We were 4-2 down at half-time and lucky to be only 2 behind. Law Best Charlton all scored for them.

 

Lovely sunny day. 55,000 or more there. Jack Witham got 3 or 4.

Rubbish with dates, but games that immediately came to mind are

Ipswich away first game of season 91/2? Had to climb over fence cos got squashed.

Chelsea away semi final 90? Had a gun pulled on me.

Everton fa cup reply late 80s? Got stuffed but my first experience of being suffocated to death on the Kop.

Man utd home boxing day early 90s 3-3. And

Man utd home early 90s won 3-2. Amazing games.

Pigs at lane 93? 1-1. Hirst scored. Watched first 10 mins from John street before sprinting through open barrier with chief peppa pig after me.

More recently pigs away 2-2. Felt like a win.

Boxing day Massicre. A game against Chelsea we were leading 3-0 @ half time & lost 4-3 Paul Cannoville came on & destroyed us.. & a game against Chesterfield. 1978 leading 3-0 @ half time & drew 3-3 Roger Wylde. & of coarse a game against West Ham where Waddle put on a one man show to win 5 something.

 

We drew 4-4.

One game I'll never forget v Man U at Old Trafford we lost 2-1 you know the game it's been shown over and over.

I'll always remember my Dad looking at his watch, showing me the time 5 to 5 it was clenching his fist saying we've won this, as we were one nil up at that time. We all know what happened next. Red devil teddies been thrown at us Man Utd fans going bonkers, Wednesday fans saying we're not bothered we're going to Wembley, singing we're going to Wembley twice song. Oh and I remember we were sat just behind Tricky Dicky from Eastenders too.

For different reasons, that Wigan game that got called off in the second half last season was one of the funniest games I've been to.

There are loads of games that spring to mind but I always fondly remember beating Man U 1-0 in the mid 80s with a Lee Chapman header in front of the Kop and over 48K crammed into Hillsborough going mental.

The 5-0 drubbing of West Ham in the mid 90's. Waddle tore them a new one in that game and scored one as well. The most dominant display i've ever seen at hillsborough, and Waddle got a 10 player rating in the Sunday paper

For a more recent one, Leeds at home season before last sticks out, where that tw@t crawley smacked Kirkland. Went berserk when Bothroyd put us ahead and I was in the first row in front of the executive boxes so I could watch all the replays. When Tonge scored I had to look away because I hated seeing their lot celebrating, so I missed what happened to Kirkland, my mate thought he'd been hit by a bottle so I went berserk again - just as a fight erupted in the executive box behind me. It turned out one of the blokes in the box behind me was a Leeds fan who had a complete inability to keep his mouth shut, to the point where he turned to the Wednesdayites in the next box and genuinely stuck out his tongue. He was promptly chased behind the glass screen, where he remained for the rest of the game. I remember screaming for a winner that never came, then walking out the ground with shouts of "scum" going off everywhere.
