Small Heath memories
« on: October 24, 2017, 01:49:05 PM »
The most memorable one was the Andy gray game, the day after Nancy died and Sid was nicked. The programme contained a letter from a knob who was begging forgiveness for his acts of fb violence and blues with their sid is innocent banner. Happy days

Going to a 'friendly', taken down to the lower tier, across the pitch, down the players tunnel and out of the ground in small groups. Walking around the ground and down Coventry Road where they were waiting for us to be let out.

Every goal we've scored there. Incredible feeling when we score at the Shitehole. My first trip there was in 09 as a 17 year old. Gabby nipping the ball into the net on 85 minutes and you've never seen anything like it.
Collins goal when we drew 1 1 was incredible, massive outpouring of relief when that went in, they were singing about us going down that game. LOL
Last year was a drab affair, our fans weren't at their best, scum fans were loud but just kept singing KRO on loop. But when Gardner headed that ball in it went crackers.
Sty is my favourite away day. Roll on Sunday.

I've changed the title. We're not them and we don't want to sink to their level.

My first visit to the sty and first derby when we won 1-2 in 1980/81, Easter Monday 1983, the battle of Brum at Villa Park later in 1983, 13-0 in 1988, especially as the 6-0 was on my eighteenth birthday and the Easter Sunday Cahill game.

Boxing day 1982, the Enckelman game, the return game at Villa Park later that season, the quarter final under Houllier when they went on to actually win  the cup.

21/12/87, the chaos getting in, further chaos inside, "Baldwin is a Goose", skinheads in sheepskins and Bruno's two bullet headers.

I've been to the Small Heath club shop twice. Once to buy their club video of that game in December 1987 a few weeks later as I was in Australia at the time it was played and once to buy my old man a Small Heath shirt with 'Grandad' on the back for his first Father's Day as a grandad.

Distorted, deluded, factually incorrect ones mainly.

Used to love the croc walk from the hole in the wall to the ground.   Although we lost the bh game 3 - 2 in 76 loved the atmosphere we created with over 12, 000 fans there and tickets at 50p a throw for juniors in the tilton

Doubt if Iím alone but I absolutely hate this fixture.

Home or away I feel physically sick until the final whistle. The only exception was when we scored the 5th in the 5-1 thrashing.

In 2006 my mate fainted when Cahill scored, silly fucker jumped up from his seat so quick, blood rushed out of his head and down he went.

My brothers mate put a cheeky £5 on that score line. When the 5th went in there was this group of Villa fans desperate for the final whistle and cheering when we missed getting a 6th.
I think he only won around £70

Same here .When Forsell got one back to make it 4-1 ? I started  getting nervous about an unlikely comeback.
