some memorable games there -  a couple i can't see mentioned:

 

2-1 Southend 1976 last game that kept us out ot the 4th tier;

3-2 against Man U in 91 coming back from 1-2 down.

 

I also think the Di Canio game against Arsenal will always be up there - a sort of JFK moment.

These are the 1s I remember as being good, some for the football, some for the occasion/ what it meant to the club. Will try in date order. Might be more than 10 though.

Arsenal FA cup 79

Carlisle 80 promotion

Burnley 83 FA cup

Chelsea 83 2-1 Megson late winner

Liverpool 84? League cup

Newcastle 84 4-2

Palace 84 Promotion

Man Utd 85 ended there unbeaten run

Chelsea 85 4-4 league cup

West Ham 86 Fa cup

Middlebrough 89 stayed up

Blades 89/90 3-2 zenith data, great game, great goals 1st time I saw us beat em

Chelsea 91 league cup

Bristol City 91 Promotion

Kaiserslautern 93

Coventry not sure when 4-3 behind 3 times Dublin hat trick scored hat trick but still lost

Liverpool 3-3 98? Owen hat trick ( his 1st I believe)

Brentford 2005 playoff

Huddersfield 4-4 Great match, great comebacks Rhodes.

Blades 2012 The derby that didn't matter :-) according to some swine.

Carlisle 2012 Antonio goal

Wycombe 2012 no words needed

Leeds 6-0 2014?

Brighton 2-0 2016 playoff

Bristol City 3-2 comeback

 

Biggest regret, my Dad not taking on boxing day 79

 

Here's to many more great matches/occasions. Sure I've missed loads on that list, had many great away days too

Thanks Swfc UTO!

I forgot the Waddle game against West Ham, best solo performance I have ever seen.

Boxing Day massacre

5-4 v Man U - came back a day early from holiday

2nd Santos game - not a brilliant game really but an event

2-1 v Carlisle

The Cardiff game last season

 

Am sure I will have missed plenty of great games out in between times but there has been so much crud at times that I think the memories have been pushed deep down.

These are may choices although many are memorable for the impact on the season (and on me personally) rather than the football (which in many cases was dire). In chronological order:

 

Dec 1971 v Norwich 1-1 (my first game at Hillsborough)

Feb 1973 v Chelsea 1-2 (FA Cup 5th round - first time when I saw Hillsborough packed)

May 1974 v Bolton 1-0 (late winner from Ken Knighton to keep us up)

Dec 1974 v Manure 4-4 (just a great game)

Mar 1976 v Colchester 1-0 (lowest post war crowd on record and we needed an 87th minute og)

May 1976 v Southend 2-1 (the game that saw us avoid relegation to div 4 final game in a run of 5 consecutive home wins which kept us up)

Dec 1979 - I'll let everyone guess which one!

Nov 1983 v Geordies 4-2 fantastic game and atmosphere

Feb 1984? v Liverpool 2-2 (really should have won, dodgy penalty near end spared their blushes)

Feb 1985 v Chelsea 4-4 (spectacular cup tie that in true Wednesday fashion we threw away)

 

Shortly afterwards I left the UK mainland so although I get to the odd game (and they mean a lot to me) I don't get to see that many memorable performances. I would however put in a shout for the Johnstone's Pain Trophy game against Chess 6 years ago purely for that incredible penalty shootout! Oh and also the fun day in the snow v Arsenal back in '79.

Looking at your other choices, I'll go with the 1-0 defeat against Exeter. :biggrin:
