Re: Great Nights under the Lights
The arse didn't get the arse about that celebration either, two seasons later they gave Brady a standing ovation in the f.a cup replay at Highbury (leeeeroy).

I was in the Chicken Run for that Arsenal match. Was truly a magical night.

Re: Great Nights under the Lights
Had a home season ticket from the ages of 6 (1996) years old to 16 (2006) years old, always been in the bobby Moore lower

Here's a few that stand out for me....

Leeds at home 98ish.......I was standing outside on my own with a packet of crisps and a bottle of coke, talking to the other young kids, our old men would regularly check on us every 2 mins, this was at the wine bar on the barking rd, close to the Boleyn pub.....all I can remember is that it felt like a herd of elephants were coming out the door or a a rumble of tanks coming out the pub to attack the Leeds United coaches with bottles and ashtrays, quite fun for an 8 year old, subsequently the old man says "christsake don't tell your mother, otherwise you won't be coming west ham ever again" it's safe too say I never told my old dear

God knows what the score was.

Ipswich play offs...... amazing night that was.....the air felt like it was crackling, the noise was just so intense, the noise was something I would associate with a Milan or Rome derby, it felt like time stood still when ethrington hit that shot and it seemed to take a lifetime for that white ball to hit the back of the net, the bobby Moore lower was rocking

This one....my old man always brings up...I can't remember it

Newcastle at home, night game...the game was postponed late on due to heavy rain

We was departing the ground, when the Newcastle players coach was stuck in traffic on green street, I was on my dad's shoulders when my dad points out a Newcastle player(fuck knows who), "look son wave" I did what I was told.....the player waved back, then my dad says all of a sudden the players face turned into the look of horror and disgust, my dad looked up at me, and I was giving the Newcastle player the middle finger, as soon as my dad looked up at me he says I went straight back to waving again

Honestly that place has so many childhood memories, that I will certainly cherish forever, I spent so much valuable father and son time at the Boleyn ground, and I strongly believe supporting this famous institution can teach you a lot more about life compared to any school or university.

Re: Great Nights under the Lights
Been to a few, but I never felt the stadium shake before or after the Ipswich semi..it did shake.

Had a buzzing in my ears for a week..

Great times, hopefully more at the bowl to follow.

Re: Great Nights under the Lights
It's often said that 'the ground was shaking', but in that Ipswich Play Off Semi Final the ground was literally shaking.

Never experienced anything like it.

This whole stadium move is finally starting to dawn on me. We're actually leaving The Boleyn. Can't quite get my head around it.

IRONS!!!

WHU 4-0 Villa 05/06

Yea well I was there that night..but not in the ground..the mancs burning the WH flag in the central made some of us somewhat busy

Re: Great Nights under the Lights
Man Utd in the cup with Spector playing like Messi, Tal Ben Haim destroying Bebe, and Carlton being 'overchuffed' has to be a recent contender.

Re: Great Nights under the Lights
Ince and Liverpool probably should be, but Dailly's nads and Ipswich even more. Another raucous one was Kenny Brown's shin and MU 1-0 disgusting effort

Re: Great Nights under the Lights
Unless I missed it, was the Liverpool 4-1 match in that top ten, when Ince scored?

Re: Great Nights under the Lights
The only one I missed out of that lot was Den Haag, and that was because of circumstances beyond my control. I remember being totally gutted at the time.

Re: Great Nights under the Lights
Everton in the cup 1991, was in the west upper level with the goal line and can still clearly picture slaters mazy run.

Ipswich playoffs was on a different level to any game I've been to anywhere, only time I've felt the Boleyn shaking and the next day my ears were still ringing. Absolutely awesome night.

Re: Great Nights under the Lights
Spurs midweek in a few weeks time should be good... be fitting if that's the last game under the lights.

Athletico Easthamico 8:53 Wed Feb 10
Re: Great Nights under the Lights
Spurs 1981, 1-0 (LC)

That's my favourite.

The next day the Sun said it was the most hostile, vicious, poisonous atmosphere at a football match ever.

Re: Great Nights under the Lights
Novemberr 26th 1966 in the league cup West Ham beat Leeds 7-0, midweek game under floodlights.

The best I've ever seen us play in a cup game. In those days every club played its strongest eleven.

Gutted I missed last night.

Re: Great Nights under the Lights
Oh yeh I was at that one too.

Sold, exactly what is your problem with me saying the LC semi in 81 was my most memorable?
