Why? We always win there, for starters. More Northern teams and fewer Southern upstarts thar we always do terribly against, please.

Before they moved I always thought M'boro was one of the most worrying away games. They were always up for it and didn't care who they went for.

a trip to Middlesborough was never the same since they moved

There were some nice walks around that lovely old ground Ayresome park taking in the picturesque views, locals were always friendly and welcoming

Ayresome Park in about 88 or 89, that Valentine day live match.

That was a bit ropey to say the least. At most 300 of us, bricks coming over the walls where we were penned in outside the away end after the final whistle.

That could be a scary place to go. Great example of a club moving ground and entirely changing their nature as a result.

Maybe we should persuade Small Heath to move? I'll order a taxi.

That Zenith data cup semi final was a bad night, coach getting bricked despite the fact they’d won. Cavemen.

I was there. We left before the end and talked the chap on the gate to let us out so we could get back to the car. Probably still got the programme somewhere.

Pretty sure I was there for that one too. Jackie Charlton was in the TV box behind us. Two of us traveled over by train from Leeds to be met at the station by loads of police and a double decker bus each to take us to the ground. Seeing as it was just two Villa fans they chucked us in the back of a van and drove us to the ground and later picked us up and took us back to the station. Later heard some nasty stories of fans getting picked off and chased down little alleys.

I went to that one, not many Villa there despite us being quite high in the league. We’d paid in to that terrace which was below pitch height but all moved up into the seats.

I recall being held in that enclosure outside the ground whilst what seemed like tens of thousands of snarling Boro walked past, it felt like being a Christian in the Colosseum whilst the Lions eyed up a snack. Got on the coach, bricks had been thrown through the windows and we drove back to Brum with a howling wind blowing through it. And we lost.
