    Season 2008/09 was my favourite, or maybe 2006/07.

    1998/99 wasn’t bad, and that 1969/70 cup run will live long in the memory.

    Complements of the season to one and (mostly) all. 🎄

    nORTHUMBIRON—-1957 was my year to remember pal a really great year fore entertaiment at the OSG, the 3-1 away win in the FA Cup against Cup specialist Newcastle was brilliant and our year when winning the Giant killers cup. Pity but we never seem to advance to the stage of the big guys entering the competition these days.

    The 57/58 Div 3(N) winning season I assume BS.

    I was just a nipper living in Brigg still. But I remember the excitement around it. I have a photo of Jack Haigh heading in at SJP hanging on the wall at home.

    Pride of place for when any Mags visit!

    Newcastle again 1973-1974 for that cup replay. We lost 0 v 3, but never seen the Old Showground so full before. Plus we got the day off school so we could go to the game.

    NI, when I was a schoolboy Jackie Haigh and his mate the wrestler Mick McMichael often used to come fishing on the Chesterfield Canal just outside the back of our house.

    The Newcastle game in 73/74 was played during the day, the same as the Millwall replay due to the 3 day week power cuts, having got a good kicking at Newcastle the nearest we dare drink at home was the Bell and Anchor lol. Another record season that year we were awarded 2 points that season as Exeter didn’t have enough fit players for our home game with them, the first ever time a season was not completed a record that stood for 45years till Bolton started playing silly buggers in 2019. 69/70 cup run was were the footy song F em all started which everyone has stolen, such a shame our cup history but he ho there’s always next year and that dream. Thanks for everyone’s reminders.

    Merry Christmas to all apart from the forum 6 libtards! I don’t know why they’re celebrating, given Christmas isn’t woke and is probably racist!

    I was in the Gallowgate end for the original tie in 74. I went apeshit when Keeley scored, then realised I was surrounded by Mags. I braced myself for a good kicking, but they just stared at me in bewilderment!

    Great memories.

    not a senior moment Cass, Mick McMichael was a Donny lad and a household name at the same time as McManus and in the 70s just as famous.

    The Milwall game is also memorable as they had a good side. Some of the Millwall nutters dressed as surgeons!!

    I would love to wish ALL members of the Iron-Bru Forum and all at SUFC a very happy New Year, and hope that you all have a much improved time than the past two years, which have been hell for many of us.

    This also includes the FORUM SIX members that have been part of a lot of banter over the years, no hard feelings guys, and enjoy the future.

    I really miss the GP days, and hope that things get a lot better under the new manager, it would be nice if enjoyment and entertainment could once again be gained by a Saturday visit into the Cluggy, the problem is that the best mates that sat in my seat location have also stopped attending matches so it would be a bit lonely right now.

    Anyway, all the very best guys from bartonscorpion.

    Known as ‘treatment’ if I remember. Another set of morons went by the name of ‘F Troop’.
    There’s a documentary somewhere about them.
    Happy Christmas everyone.

    Sorry everyone I’m a bit late but best wishes for the season and the football season and life in general. Onwards and upwards I hope.

    Fond memories of Newcastle away like traveling home in windowless buses.

    Millwall at home,that goal,wow. Just dream of a cup run nowadays.

    I remember probably the last non-segregated home derby against the Cods, the fighting in the Donny Road End was pretty much the whole game.
    Strikers, we had Cassidy, they had a guy called Stuart Brace, their No7.
    Some of the Grimsby fans wore long white coats, like lab coats iirc.
    I think that was 68/9.
    My sister had to be taken out of the dre after being struck on the head by a missile thrown by one of the Cod fans.
    I only found out when I got home.

    Happy days?
    Only in some ways.

    “Known as ‘treatment’ if I remember. Another set of morons went by the name of ‘F Troop’. There’s a documentary somewhere about”.

    On the other board I posted about only being three clicks away from far right content on YouTube.

    This was my experience. Went on YouTube to watch the highlights of a couple of European games. Was directed via “you may also like” to some 70s games including the replay of the Leeds v Chelsea FA Cup Final. That led to clips of footballers fighting (Franny Lee & Norman Hunter was a goodie) which in turn led to a documentary about those Millwall firms!

    I promptly exited!

    I remember going into the ground and all the Iron fans were in the corner being pelted with coins by the Cods. Awaywego was probably up the floodlight throwing them back!!

    Despite all our reasonably recent success under Nigel and Steve Wharton my best ever memory is still that 2-1 away win at Sheffield Wednesday in thge FA Cup back in January 1970. Maybe its because i was just 14 and stood with a crowd of Scunny fans all going ape shit when Cass headed in that winner from George Kerrs corner. Terry Heath thumping their bar with a 20 yard thunderbolt and John Barker putting his head in where it hurts when we needed a hero plus Kevin Keegan playing for us back then and all the other great memories from a truly brilliant day. Football was different then in its perception amongst the fans and results like that were just hidden gems in the dust of pretty average lower league football but i dont know, it seemed to mean so much more then it does now. Maybe its just an age thing but that was a truly magic day to be an Iron fan which in turn meant a memorable season.

    Season’s greetings and best wishes to all. I rarely post here, mainly because I usually have little to add to your (mainly 😊) intelligent and insightful comments, but I enjoy reading what you all have to say. The last few seasons have been tough ones for all of us. Sometimes the only hope or comfort I could find has been knowing that I’m not the only one who feels as badly as I do when our club stumbles from one low to the next.
