I’m sure that most clubs feel that they have the best “special days” but I genuinely feel we do...and that was one of them

Who here was there on this day in 94?.........

Not me unfortunately. I was back in Germany although I did attend our last home game versus Grimsby, and on the Brummie! Last home fixture with the terraces. For the Pompey game I was at a barbecue in Krefeld. Among others a Pompey fan was present. Sadly my temperament was somewhat questionable back then. On reflection I was an immature and overly aggressive hand shanker with a fist speed to match. Glad to post said Pompey fan looked almost as happy as I when the final score came through, and I was bouncing around like a happier than happy Cheshire cat on speed   ;D .

If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

It was indeed a great day, with of all things a header from Peggy, sending us into raptures. A real nail-biter though, and happy to get on the road home for me.

Best away day ever, police did a fantastic job controlling inside the ground, outside was bedlam.

We hired a coach from the Five Ways in West Brom, met up at about 7am for breakfast and a pint.
I remember half the terrace along the side of the pitch being given to Albion fans as we took so many.
anything can be proven with facts.
I much prefer knee jerk reaction and prejudice

Great day. The game seemed to last forever, as there were a few scuffles between our fans and theirs which spilled on to the pitch. The police must of been caught out as they probably didn’t think we wouldn’t bring as many fans as we did. Fratton park, what a dump.

Not me, I was in Dudley Road hospital listening to it on the radio. I was given an injection to calm me down because the nurses were worried about the stitches in my back.  The stories I still hear today about that weekend are not for the fainthearted.

Sunday night after the game Hunt, Raven and I think Agnew we’re out celebrating, boing on the dance floor with hunt bud going every where TIL the early hours
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

What a day! Got a parking ticket and at the end of the match on the pitch with most of the other Baggies, suddenly a long screwdriver landed at my feet - thrown about 30 yds by a Pompey fan.

I was at the match, absolutely mental day, strangely enough I was based in Krefeld too then and had driven back for the game, via Brum to pick up my mates. Some very confused people that day seeing a left hand drive car with Krefeld plates full of Albion fans.

Kind of spooky that you pair speak of Krefeld.

We have a number of mates in Krefeld who often come to The Hawthorns and vice versa.

It’s always an added bonus that they return with bottles of Korn..

I recall it being freezing cold on my visits !  :D

I have had some mental nights drinking Korn back in the day. Though for the Pompey day, I brought a slab of wobbly (Warsteiner) back with me, which my mates demolished as I was driving.

Loved the Wobbly. First drank it in a bar whilst attached to a section of Bundeswehr on an evasion exercise. Top evading  ;D . Were you with the Royal Signals? I was attached to 7 Sigs in Herford and then following their move to Krefeld. Venlo was a very popular destination. The Eros Centre behind camp beside the railway line seemed quite popular too........

I was a shiny backside, attached to 28 Sigs which became 280 Sigs, at St Tonis. I may have known a few people who were regular Visitors  to the Eros.

A shiny a***e, now there's a blast from the past, you two have got me all nostalgic now
Never got much beyond Paderborn myself on my occasional forays into the old Germany, and used to enjoy the ritual of showing my backside, after removing cap badges, to the East German border guards and their cameras. When stationed in Aldershot the Para's used to fondly refer to us as 'c**p hats' until it was time for us to administer their shots and 'cough twice' test or scrape them up off the ground after deliberately jumping out of a perfectly serviceable airplane

I still say to this day that the ref blew the final whistle early. My memory is that there were Albion fans stood round half the pitch basically on the touch line waiting to invade the pitch, a late goal for Pompey would have caused bedlam, so I am convinced the ref blew early, certainly wasn’t any stoppage time.
