At least 5 of the home games. Vivid memories of beating Leeds in '85. A great game beating Norwich during our promotion season of 02/03 with the Yak & Toddy doing the biz. Though I couldn't get a ticket, remember being gutted as we lost to Luton on their plastic pitch in the FA Q/F in '88.

Five home games for me including Brum twice. No special memories. Tickets for Luton Matt wee impossible to get but a sad day as we could have gone all the way that season even though we were relegated - sound familiar.

Only made the last two games, I also remember feeling how "unjust" it was to lose to Luton on their "unfair advantage of a plastic pitch" and just when I was running out if things to moan about until I heard my my mum say to my dad "tell im it's only a game" inspiring me to the longest berating rant ever, I was still chuntering all the way through the following mums day. Middle east wars, pah! the troubles pah! Tories destroying the country pah! No Luton's plastic pitch and how out of touch my Daily Mail reading parents were; ah those were the days :-)
