Too many to mention since I moved over here!

But I did miss the west ham v wba game where we won  3 - 4

Now if i remember we were 3 - 0 down and won 3 - 4.  I was mean't to be at the game but I had to go on a business trip at the last minute.

I was at the Bradford game with my son, the longer the game went on the more frustrating it got being right behind the goal and the amount of chances we had made it worse. We decided to go towards the exit as we were going into injury time and then SuperBob was  bought down on the right hand side of the area, there was no complaints from any of the Bradford players it was a dyed in the wool dead cert. Egor Balis stepped up to take the spot kick, with our record of pens that season which was abymal  you could feel the tension, Balis stepped up and stroked the ball into the net and the place erupted. The rest is history.

Too many to type as i didnt get a season ticket till a few years back as i couldnt go alone until i was "old enough" as my dad couldnt make all the games.

But the one that sticks out is the great escape day...........my mom booked a holiday to lanzarote leaving on that great day. I had to ask the air stewardess to ask the other air stewardess to ask the pilot who then told everyone over the speaker thing. Then it resulted in me and my dad getting some funny looks as we both jmped up and boing boinged on the plane  ;D

The 1-1 at Bradford, would love to have seen and felt that penalty live.

Jordao 1-0 at the Molinuex, that was the beginning of the end for them and the beginning for us. Would have been brilliant.

Any where I have missed us win to be honest.

Arsenal away was one I still feel gutted about, I'd saved up for that only for my grandad to pass away meaning the money went elsewhere. Turns out we played bloody brilliant and I missed it, cheers Grandad you old fart!

I tend to be a horrible curse at away games. Sunderland away was the first time I'd saw us score this season let alone win! Last year I only saw us win twice out of about seven.

I was lucky enough to be at that one and Highbury a few days later (or before) when we beat Arsenal.


I think Oldham in 76 and Wembley 68 are the ones I wish I could have been at.

I have been to all of them listed on this thread including Valencia away, EXCEPT the Championship winning game at QPR.

Supported Baggies home and away for over 50yrs and would you believe, I was diagnosed with a DVT three days befor the game and wasn't allowed to travel. Had to cancel holiday in Portugal also.

I am ok now, and the last three away games have been brilliant.

A game in the late 50s when a late Ronnie Allen goal sent the Vile down (would have been difficult to get to as I wasn't yet born). Could this year see the modern day equivalent?
