Individual game. Pompey FA Cup defeat. Should have won it, would have won the Cup if we did. Massive missed chance that was.

I mentioned the Tony pulis era earlier on but another time that sticks out is the double the dingles did over us in 95/96 I think it was. Iwan Roberts hat trick , I was a young lad at the time going to school in darlaston so I got a pretty hard time over it.

For the amount of times we’ve turned them over though I do think it must be horrible being them  ;D

Individual game vs QPR FA Cup semi final 1982. A match on paper we should've won. We were awful on the day and I cried my eyes out I really thought I was going to see Albion in my first cup final and in those days the FA Cup was HUGGGGGEEE!

I'm still bloody waiting.  :'(

The first two that come to mind are the Derby play off final and Pompey FA Cup.

Genuinely went to both of those games believing we would win the game, came away very depressed when we didn't. As someone above mentioned, that was probably our best chance at winning the FA cup in a long time.

Any game we lose, any game we draw from a winning position, any game against the dingles the vile or Tottenham divers, we fail to win by 2 clear goals. Ain’t life a misery?

The Pulis era without a doubt the worst time for me.
I started following Albion regularly in 1974. Had a season ticket for 25 years until moving away but still made regular trips to the hawthorns.
The only time I have ever said no more was after the 0.0 with Villa the season they got relegated. Probably the worst game of football I have ever seen. This was on the back of other awful performances. Pulis said after the Villa game well thats another point. We had just plsyed by far the worst team in the division at home and failed to register a single shot.
That was it for me. I refused to go to any more games until he was no longer involved. The day he was sacked I was actually elated thinking that things could only look up now....Oh dear...I continued my boycott in disbelief at the appointment of his replacement.
Now delighted to be able to attend all Saturday home games and enjoying it!

Standing on the South Bank at Molineux in 1963 watching us thumped 7-0, and believe me it could have been double figures. This was a re-arranged match after the original game was abandoned.
I was also at the original game on Boxing Day when a blizzard caused the abandonment at half-time with us 2 down. To think I went home happy that day!!!

As some of you may note by my user-name I've been watching for a long time. Good posts here and I agree with many of them, especially having walked away from Wembley 4 times as losers. The lowest point, however, has to be watching us lose to Torquay United at Plainmoor in the 3rd tier (called League 2 for some reason). Bobby Gould was manager, our football was dreadful and we had some old timers, Graham Roberts was one, just there to pick up the money for their pension. The lowest we could sink - hopefully, ever.
And then Pullis was appointed and for the 1st time in my life I began to lose interest, not completely because that won't happen, but I lost all interest in coming to watch. And then Pardew. For goodness sake. Big Dave has faults and failings, lower division I know but isn't life better?

The years after we were spoilt by the teams of the 70's and early 80's by God we fell a long way and we probably never get back to that level. Watching drivel severed up By Saunders, Gould, Buckley, Pulis and Pardew with a little Ray of sunshine from Ossie and Tony.

Reading this thread has dredged up some horrible memories, Twerton, semi-final defeats, Ron Effing Saunders....but for me it has to be the Pulis era or more specifically May 15th 2016. Final match of the season, nothing to play for and he sets us up to get a home draw against Liverpool. I left that match knowing that he would never change his approach under any circumstances and I walked away from the game with the sad knowledge that I wouldn't be renewing my long held season ticket.

2 years away but back now and loving it again.

For me, genuinely it was the Pulis/Pardew 2 year period. It put my love of the game in a coma. First time ever i stopped even checking the score.
Whenever things look bad, remember the Port Vale, Grimsby and Walsall days... not so bad now, eh?!

We must be twins. However, how sweet was our equaliser last night. I scared the bejesus out the locals here in Florida. I’m still celebrating.

i was devastated for days after we lost at Seal Park a couple of years ago mid-week.
Foster had a nightmare right at the end and spilled the ball, and then pulled someone down for a pen right at the end, for us to lose 2-1. i walked back to the car numb and was so down for days...
We lost 1-0 in the cup days later, but that league game really hurt.

FA Cup Semi, Derby Play off come close...
