Maurice again - v Crystal Palace.
Waiting to see how long it is before anyone mentions Megson and Ullathorne. Both worth a laugh!

For sheer and utter excitement alone, Bramble against Sunderland and Wilnis against Man Utd are hard to beat for me...

My favourite was Kevin Beattie, last league game of the season in 1975 against West Ham. I really disliked West ham for putting us out of the FA Cup Semis thanks to ref Clive Thomas' appalling performance. This went only a small way to compensate when we won 4-1, and Beattie's goal was fantastic, when he used his strength to power through the entire West ham defence before scoring a wonderful goal.

Paul Mariner's on his home debut against West Brom wasn't bad.

I can recall many great goals, Paul Mason lob against palace and his last ever touch against exeter I believe from a near impossible angle, taricco against man utd, Petta against Norwich in the 5-0, reuser against Bolton just for the occasion, Neil Thompson 95th minute free kick against Portsmouth for a 3-2 win, tommy miller hit a cracker in off the bar but I can't recall the opposition, Danny sonner overhead kick, Adam tanner diving header from edge of area in the Anglo italian There have also been some goals against us that iv seen the town fans up to applaud, andy towsend for Aston villa, Kevin lisbie for charlton (yes that Kevin lisbie) and in more recent times Leighton baines for wigan

Anyone remember Kieron Dyers header from around 20 yards against Bolton in the play offs (the one we lost in the semis)? Brilliant due to it's absurdity!

Frank Yallop away v Spurs
and four days later, home v Man Utd Dalian Atkinson v Middlesbrough (1st and 2nd goals) Marcus Stewart away v Bolton
RedDust added 15:58 - Feb 7
kieron dyers head were it just in advertanly bounces of his head and drops in at a near impossible angle into the top corner

Alan Lee away at Leeds to send them down for just sheer going completely mental
I suppose since we're apparently including away games the best I've ever seen live would have to be Jermaine Wright's stunner against Rotherham. Pure class! I also seem to remember very good build up play to David Unsworth's debut (and probably only) goal for us away at Sheff U, he just smashed it edge of the box as I recall AND any goal by Martijn Reuser. Wembley in particular

Mick Mills V Liverpool in the seventies.
Not a classic but 88 mins I think it was and Millsy slid it in through the mud, 1-0 job done. We didnt beat them too often, very special goal.

Must be a lot of young supporters on here today, if you get a chance get the DVD showing the goals in the early 80s. Most of the goals scored were brilliant, but then again we had some star players at that time.
