Were 0-3 up at Bournemouth at halftime. Going into the last minute of the 90, they are losing 4-3.

OUCH!

Through the swirling mists of time……what was the home game where we were four down at HT, pulled it back to 3-4 then missed a pen ?

Swirl, not a word used much these days.

Birmingham. Lee Camp saved the penalty.

And if my memory serves me was the rebound not cleared by a defender who was ahead of Wells before he took the penalty.

I'm old enough to remember being 0-4 down at home to Newcastle at half time. The game finished 5-5 with us scoring our 5th in the last minute of the game. An amazing afternoon, and the place went wild! Alan Mullery was our manager and Jack Charlton was the Newcastle manager - 22 September 1984.

I remember that match - I was in the Loft which is virtually unknown to me as I like the side on view.
Was the SA Rd stand being refurbished or something then ?

My last game before I left for South Africa. Was in the Loft. Best ever game I went to , right up there with the Play Off final! The week before I was at White Lane watching Spurs put 5 past us.

I attended the White Hart Lane debacle but missed that Newcastle game. Still ranks as one of the worst decisions of my life! :oops: :twisted:

I remember the away game at Port Vale where we were 0-4 at HT but came back to make it 4-4 - and it was live on TV !

As a season ticket holder since getting locked out of game v.West Ham about 1970, my claim to fame for the few matches missed were both down to Company 5-a-side I helped organise...

QPR 5 Newcastle 5
And
QPR 6 Chelsea 0

aniwall aniwall aniwall
This time we'll get it right - just believe! :wink:

I was at both those games. I was in the Loft for the Newcastle game. Then for a while, I was a steward in the School End. After I missed our first 5 goals against Chelsea because I was letting police and staff in and out of the wicket gate at the entrance, I decided to quit and go back to the Loft! :D

I won a competition and was presented with a Guinness book of soccer facts and feats on the pitch before that game.

I would like to say I remember that happening ... but I don't. Sorry. shifty

I do remember both sets of fans being on the platform at Shepherds Bush station and on the train afterwards, and everyone was talking about the game, not a hint of any trouble, just fans enjoying what they had seen. Nearly everyone had lost their voice, so there were a lot of croaky voices. :D
