Chelsea and Bolton and Utaka's wonder goal - what a player we all thought! But how wrong we were.

The last 3 home games for me. In 1987 a wake up call in one of early home games back in the top flight which ended in relegation, sad times. Little to remember about losing to Bradford at home in 2001, other than we were in for another long poor season. Happier days in 2007, what a season that turned out to be. Most memorable was Utaka's run & goal, what a player we all thought. Sadly that was probably as good as it got.

Just spotted the attendance at Hartlepool in 1979 is wrong!! 9,000 at the Vic no chance, I also know where Pompeyrama got that from. Saddo that I am I will get that corrected.
