The police arrived, the train didn’t go any further and all in that carriage including us were told to leave the station.

Remember walking back from the the game to new cross gate station about ten years later. Think jim cannon may have scored late on. Scary walk….

10:30 ITV4. Don't think I've seen that since, erm, 1977. :p

Is that the game where our physio ran onto the pitch and booted the ball away so that he could treat a player? Dave Horn?

I think Venables was going to substitute Jerry Murphy but then he scored a worldy and Venables talked about Murphy making him look stupid?

Think that was Stoke away, either promotion season or the 1st season up

I thought it was the home game that was on, didnít realise it was the away game, i donít remember seeing it at all back then or since, not one of our nicer yellow kits.

First time Iíve seen those highlights. Thanks for the shout.

When we scored at Sheffield it looked like we had more fans there than Millwall on the opening day

Is this the game where George Graham got sent off (for the 2nd time in a few days) and we still won ?

That's because it wasn't our kit. It was Sheff Utd's.

Blimey you’re right, I had to go back and have another look, I still had to pause it to get a close look at the badge. I wondered why I didn’t remember it.

I admired their optimism then and still do.

To be fair, they did reach the quarter finals that season. They were drawn at home to Ipswich and it inevitably ended in a mini riot when it became clear that Millwall were heading for a 1-6 thrashing. I think it was more a case of mindless vandalism born out of frustation that an attack on the visiting fans although I wouldn't have wanted to take my chances as an away fan that afternoon.

Looks like we are on 2 weeks running, this Saturday, Stoke City away, then next Saturday at home to Southampton.
