Off work this week but will be spending it in front of the laptop working on this bad boy. I’m looking for stories from supporters throughout the 90/91 season - from Ipswich to Wembley to Oldham and everywhere in between. Let’s have a chat.

If you have anything for Alex - you can PM him at @Toadie or tweet him

Best season in my lifetime. Absolutely brilliant. So many fantastic away games. Too many to choose from but Coventry away in the QF was epic. Seem to recall it got cancelled a couple of times before the game finally went ahead. What a night.

When this goal went in against Peter Shilton from John Harked I started to believe we were going to win the League Cup

 

 

And then Wilson scored this one in the semi final. It was surely our year...

 

 

And when Sheridan scored thst goal in the Final. I couldn't believe what I was seeing, but 2nd Division Wednesday were clearly the better footballing team again that day, by a mile.

 

No big time Charlie's in that team. They worked on that style of play, and we were even prepared to accept relegation with Big Ron from the 1st Division as the style of play always promised we would progress, and the 3-2 defeats would turn into 4-1 victory's.

 

David Hirt's hatrick against Hull City at the start of that season was really the start of it. Every season for the last 25 years has been painful to watch because of what happened in the 90-91 season...

 

When he's finished writing the book, they should make a film about it.

My favourite season ever.

I also remember buying a ticket of a tout outside boundary park last game of the season as well - we were both up but we had also won the league Cup and really didn't have anything to play far apart from hand Oldham a last min pen to give them the title over West Ham.

Some absolute memories that season including sleeping in the wooden South stand after coming back from Portsmouth away when Carlton got sent off and subsequently missed the League Cup Final.

So many memories:-

 

1. On school work experience at The Army for a week and not regretting staying up late to watch highlights of away match at Brighton even though we were going to be up at stupid o'clock for a morning manoeuvres session;

 

2. The A1 to/from Ipswich. Every other car had a blue and white scarf;

 

3. Winning South Yorkshire schools Rugby League final at Don Valley Stadium and turning down the offer of a curry (and one beer) to rush to watch Millwall cup replay at Hillsborough;

 

But all that aside, I always wondered what happened to the lads who got kicked out of Hillsborough for daring to run down the tunnel for a kick about when we we were all queuing in the South Stand for Cup Final tickets?!

 

Got to be the biggest cheer Hillsborough has ever known (in the early hours of the morning!)

 

Did they get tickets? Are there any pictures of them and/or the masses asleep in the South Stand? Those coming back from Portsmouth should have been put to the front of the queue.

 

it was such a unique situation that there must be so many stories from that evening and for me as a 16YO it was the start of the party.

 

UTO.
