My first season as a fan. I remember so much about it.

I think results did pick up a bit when Monk and the other loanees came in?

 

Dropped off when they left if I recall. 

 

We were shocking that season.

Before that Boxing Day game against Forest ( a 2-0 win) we had only won two league games all season , the Lloyd Owusu game against the Pigs and a 2-1 home win against Bradford. The second half of the season was only marginally better than the first. Two of our ten wins came after we were relegated. Those were truly dark days.

I remember tony craine scoring a last minute goal away at bradford. We were in the lego stand behind the goal. (no idea if was this season). 

 

It just all blurred into one terrible mess, that period. 

 

We were awful, truly awful, back then.

The nadir imo - at least Monk has experienced it.

 

We moan about the situation today - but those seasons under Turner, Yorath et al were truly awful.

Can't remember who we were playing..mid seventies.. probably sleeting and a corner came over in front the Kop and hit one of our lot on the back of his head and went out for another corner..it was so quiet in the ground that it sounded like a cricket ball hitting a coconut...the ball boy said FFS and the Kop started..

Glory glory Sheffield Wednesday..

Who was Green at right back? Completely expunged him from my memory.

Who was Monk come to that ? I can't remember him playing for us at all.

I was at that Gillingham game - but can't remember a single thing about it, it just blends in with all the other utter dogshite we endured around that time.

 

But Garry Monk "remembers" it being on a Tuesday night, when it was on a Saturday. And he remembers a wall of noise from the Kop in a 17k crowd. Which inspired us to a 0-2 defeat - I think he may be just making it up!

I don't know, he couldn't have been that bad, or we'd remember him, but I do know Chris Turner had secured the services of Jon Beswetherwick by the end of the season...

 

WTF:

I don't think Turner signed beswertherick....

If ever you want to know why press conferences and manager interviews are rarely worth listening to / reading...then read the programme notes. Could just copy and paste that hundreds of times over since.

My mistake. Did Yorath sign him? He was there at the start of the season when I rechecked the programs last night. 

 

No one who saw Beswetherwick can complain about Morgan Fox...

I still have that shirt, unfortunate name, for that team at least, but it's one of the highest profile sponsors we've ever had?

Probably our last true sponsor. Ever since it's been Chairman companys and local businesses.
