Light hearted fun post alert!

Seeing all this wet weather reminded me of a soggy sixfields game under Boothroyd against Aldershot, where from the kick off we bombarded the Aldershot goal for five minutes, kicking towards the North Stand. I believe we won 2-0, but all I can take from that game was that random memory.

Do any of you have any random memories from any games down the years?  I cant be the only one surely to take something away from a game besides a goal or red card which has stuck in the brain for no reason.

Other random memories include:
Brent Rahim nutmegging a player with a crossfield pass
Daryn Stamp saying 'f**k off' chasing after a ball as it runs out of play
Gabbiadini and the West Stand rising up in anger as a throw goes against him
Scott Mcgleish saying 'bye bye' as he kicks the ball out of Chesters ground in the last minute

One which has always stuck with me was in the early naughties at Wigan. We were very much involved in a relegation battle and were getting trounced 3-0. News then filtered through of Bury trailing 0-2 then 1-2, before conceding a late third. Despite beholding battered, we knew we were staying up and the celebrations were brilliant in the stand. (Realise this may not count).

A Friday night loss 3-0 away at Port Vale in 2011, Bas Savage wasn't in the squad and went in goal during the warm up. Made an incredible fingertip save from Chris Arthur did his trademark moonwalk in celebration

Jan 31st 1987, London Rd, Pooterborough. Observations on the opposition’s then Manager Noel Cantwell by the away supporters (i.e us) following his less than flattering article regarding the Cobblers in the press. The most amazing atmosphere I ever experienced in one of our games.

v Leeds Utd in division 1. Our keeper Bryan Harvey kicks upfield Jackie Charlton runs forwards but does not reach ball and it bounces over his head. George Hudson who had run in the opposite direction (towards the Leeds goal) collects ball and slots it past Gary Sprake.

I was at that. They gave us the main stand which I found strange. Andy whathisscottishname destroyed us... I thought it was Cambridge who lost and saved us?

85/6 gave me most my memories. My first proper season with some great away days

Preston on a Friday, 17k there, John our driver nearly nodding off on the way home and me waking him as we drifted towards the central reservation...
Richard Hill at the Shay, getting **** wet thru but winning 6_3
Being first off the train at Wolves and cracking it going through that tunnel, then cracking it again every time there was a surge on that vertical terrace
Colchester's and all that yeeeeeelllow.... those t shirts with the arrow going up to a 3, haha

Also though, my lad being mascot away at Blackpool, their stewards having to move me, my mum and my 5 yr old niece out the Blackpool seats cos we celebrated Gabbi notching two

And the groundsman shoe incident at Accy a few years ago.

Tbh, my recent matchday experiences have not been good being away days in the NW. Capitulations at Fleetwood, last minute defeats at Rochdale and Bury. In fact, generally defeats everywhere from Wigan to Bolton....

I was at that Wigan game, I think the Wigan fans thought we were all mental!

Others include....

Stevie Howard finally breaking his duck for us and going nuts in celebration.

Larry's dive into the snow.

The Huddersfield game getting abandoned when the advertising hoarding fell on their fans (after Rico had finally broken his duck, actually!)

Gabbiadini getting a standing ovation after taking us apart for Darlo.

Sammo in the rain at Anfield.

Pissing myself laughing when Bayo made his debut for us and went charging down the wing - I'd never seen a sight like it!

Being star struck by bumping into the Atko era squad on a night out in Chicagos.

Sean Parrish's strike at Cardiff.

Going absolutely berserk when Gilligan scored a late equaliser away at Grimsby (and before seeing the bloke trying to put all those black and white balloons back in the big bag after he thought the ref had blown the final whistle instead of for a corner. Grin)

John Frain in the 93rd minute at Wembley.

John Hodge getting subbed 30 seconds after coming on in a testimonial (Sammo's?) and yelling "I can manage a few more minutes, boss!"

Welchy bringing out a chair and a paper to read in the second half after having so little to do in the first half in the same game.

Lots of happy memories!!

Ian Benjamin's goal v Chesterfield, and in direct opposition to his brother (Tristan?) just before he left.

What a hit!

Also, an outrageous reverse over the head flick from (I think) Eddie McGoldrick.

John Petts played in a reserve game.  The ball got kicked out on the cricket side.

Petts went after it and decided to hurdle the rope along the cricket side.  He caught his foot on the rope and fell down.  When he got up, instead of going under the rope, he tried to hurdle it again and again caught his foot and fell over the rope.

They were the days of being a student.  I was in the stands and many of the first team were there watching and were in stitches.

I was told that Alan Starling also took a cigarette when at Huddersfield.

Whilst never one to condone crowd violence etc, does anyone know who hit Peter Beardsley on the back of the head from about 50m away with a snowball? Newcastle away, FA cup 87, shot and a half?

Cheltenham away. Chelts player, can't remember who, ran down a tunnel after unsuccessfully chasing the ball, emerged with a burger box and pretended to eat a burger.

Seeing the famous Puddle for the first time or watching Baldy ironing his first garment.
Both were very emotional.

John Gayle scoring a 'consolation' goal first leg of playoff and the look on my old mans face, otherwise a huge Villa fan who had somehow managed to get a ticket for game and join me, as we went wild on the terrace.

One of the four St John's men dropping his corner of the stretcher away at Torquay (no further injury).

Kingsmeadow away terrace. Two teenage girls of Chinese origin (?) busting into tears of laughter when MC announces our right back Nana (Grandma) to crowd.

Atmosphere and quality of football we played at Rotherham away, round before Man Utd.
To paraphrase Ronnie Moore. I didnt realize it was Real Madrid we were playing tonite Grin

Simon Sturridge going off for a poo in a game against Macclesfield in 1999 which was delayed mid game because the floodlights failed. We won 2-0.

edit: had to look up who scored. Hunter and Corazzin. Unfortunately not Sturridge.

anybody that knows the slightest inclination about the game of football knows that O'Toole should be in the team. We really do have some idiotic fans.

I remember one of the first games at Sixfields where the game got delayed because there was a sink hole in the pitch. Turns out it was a hole for rugby posts or something that had been covered over with a board and then turf and soil. I remember watching a couple of blokes digging about desperately trying to sort it out and thinking at the time, this ground is a bit mickey mouse?
