Wow, if the seasons results 1-0 win at our place & 3-2 loss at their place, had mirrored the playoffs we'd have got through to Wembley

I still reckon Slaven missed a chance on purpose at their place. Bernie never hesitated, but he did that night.
One thing from that night & the whistle blew & hundreds of County fans ran on the pitch & through the mass of supporters walked Andy Dibble clapping us Boro fans

Why did Toddy announce what he did in the gazette leading up to these big games & Joe Allen for Bernie, kidding right

I still remember Baird's penalty at Meadow Lane in the normal league game(not sure if it has landed yet!). We seemed to be miles away from the pitch that day and then at the other end it looked like the goal was chalked on a brick wall it was thsat close to the pitch.

The redevelopment they did on Meadow Lane in the years after that was very good though.

I was in Kenya on holiday and missed these playoffs. No mobile phones, no internet and very expensive prices to call home meant that I relied on the English papers being delivered to the hotel complex in Mombasa to get the score on the 2nd leg. If I remember rightly, they took about five days to arrive!!

I did get to watch FA Cup final live though!
