Finally a good thread!!!, Having won promotion to the Premiership, the previous I think the expectation was that we would be in a relegation fight all season long. But unlike the many supporters, for some reason I fancied up to stay up that season. I think the signings we made for Asanaovic, Laursen, Paul Parker and Paul Mcgrath, sort made me think that we would stay up.
Actually, that season I only went to only Premiership game at the BBG, it was the first game vs Leeds at home, I think ive already told jimbo and neil, that it was the best atmosphere ive ever experienced. A fantastic game it was as well, a cracking 3-3 draw to get the season underway. The game is remembered, for Derby scoring 2 goals in 2 mintues, with Sturridge and Simpson getting the goals.
Another memory from that season, was where Tottenham opted to train at the local Primary school in Mickleover , now i know that Jimbo and Neil will remember this greatley because Gibson, who is a friend of ours, has said to me that he took the phone call from Spurs asking them if it was ok to train on the school field. I think the other 2 can go into more detail than me on this
But the memory of that season for me, Is undoubtably the 3-2 victory against Man United at Old Trafford. I rank this is our best ever Premiership win, and always will unless, we somehow beat Chelsea
. But I think it was the manor of which we played, from listinin to the game, we had plenty of chances during the match, with the best chance goin to Ashley Ward, who missed an open goal lol!!!. But the goal from Wanchope was a thing of beauty, I still rave about it now to new Man United fans I meet.
Well those are my memorys from that season, I think that started to give us a taste of some of the football we would play, during the upcoming seasons
