There for the 0-0 with Blackburn in 1985. Thankfully not there when we got stuffed by Orient in 2002. Actually it did us a favour, out went Rix & in came Harry. And 2008, a wonderful display by Jamo & a Nugent goal & we were on our way to cup glory.

Toast fans will remember the Bury game in 1957 which I wrote about a few weeks ago. For me the Swindon, Wimbledon and Blackburn games.
