Could some youngster who is more imterweb-savvy than I please find the highlights of the 4-3 win at Torquay?
3rd January 2011. Jack Midson's finest hour, Easty on the bench.

It's amazing how many games that I attended that I have absolutely no recollection of, thanks for posting that.
I couldn't remember the goal but could remember the chance right at the end. No idea why that is the case!

I can't even remember playing Sheffield Wednesday in the cup in that decade, yet can remember playing them in 1984 clearly. We lost 3-0, and have even found a clip of it...


Memory is such an odd thing.

memory of that ^^ particular cup game include Maxwell hiking the ticket prices and the Wednesday fans responding with a sizable banner proclaiming 'Maxwell= Ticket Tout' (or very similar wording) when the teams came out onto the pitch ..... they had a point!

Complete mental blank!

What was the backstory to this?
The keeper tried to pysch out Maguire by standing towards one side of the goal and pointing at the other before the penalty iirc.

1992/93 season review. Only has around 80 views so don’t think many would have seen it.

I’m only 12 minutes in and enjoying it. Dave Penney looks the star of the season at this point. Looking back he was definitely underrated, I could certainly remember the chip against Cambridge and the late equaliser at Swindon, which I just watched.

Funny watching that with modern football in mind as plenty of challenges there would now have players rolling around claiming injury/fouls/red or yellow cards. For example, Johnny Lager got headbutted and rather than go down, he got indignant!

Must have been later as it only showed him shoving the bloke away on the highlights but I don't doubt it with Johnny Lager. I remember him checking none of the officials were looking and when he saw they weren't, he punched a player who had been kicking him all game.

Totally agree. I will watch the rest later but that tackle from Paul Raynor (surprise surprise) on Magilton was filth, and only Magilton saw red for his reaction!

Can't find this - but remember Steve McLean standing on the ball, putting his hands above his eyes like a visor as if looking round for a pass. Moment of arrogance that was great to watch.
