Dancing on a table in the Forresters Arms, after Southend away, big Shamus got up to join me, and the table collapsed.

Me and my mate photo bom-bing a wedding reception outside Dewsbury railway station. Two blokes in claret shirts standing either side of the happy couple! Huddersfield away i think.

After a game, getting Jeema pissed up in the King Billy. He found his way home via Far Cotton. (he lives in Kingsthorpe)

Some Lincoln idiot goading the away coaches, arms outstretched. running straight into a lampost.

I have got loads more...  Grin

Another one I have is a memory from the Fenwick era. A Friday night game, either v Wigan or Stockport. We were at home,losing again, but the one player who was actually playing well was Paul Harsley. Cue astonishment and anger as Fenwick decided to take Harsley off. I'll never forget a reaction to a sub like it. Anyone else remember that?
W
I remember it. I thought it was Russell Slade who was the manager though. Filling in for Wilkinson because his wife was ill.

I’m probably wrong though, my memory’s becoming increasingly sketchy.

A few more: Getting kicked out of Elland Road twice, they never confiscated my ticket, so I just went back in again a few minutes later.
Apparently I had drunk too much..

In a Firkin pub in Fulham, on the balcony, singing our heads off, and the bar staff cranked up the music to drown us out, so we ripped the wires out of the speakers.. After the game all away fans were escorted to the nearby Putney Bridge tube station, we got off at the next stop Parsons Green, and walked back to the Eight Bells pub. The local plod were congratulating themselves on a job well done, until they found us outside the pub singing our heads off, recalled the reinforcements, and had to resaddle the horses. This took a while and we continued enjoying ourselves.
Helicopter overhead, riot police lined up, one copper approached us and said "time to leave lads". Certainly Sir, was the response, beers necked and off we went. They only had to ask..

Being discreet in a rough pub on The Old Kent Road, prior to Millwall away, and in walks our police liason officer Dave (Adams?) who walked straight over to me and shook my hand. Hello mate, good journey down he enquired. The entire pub is now staring at me, time to leave.

England away, Zurich March 2003, for the Lichtenstein game. Taking cover in a shop doorway, avoiding the tear gas, and rubber bullets bouncing around, and finding myself among two fellow Cobblers. Step forward "long pete" I cant remember the other guys name.

Happy days, and all alcohol related.

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.

I can remember the christmas song with a few changed words being sung.

Good Morning!

A vivid memory for me, last day of the season, my team Newport needed an unlikely victory at Walsall to secure promotion or, needed Cobblers to beat Portsmouth!

. So one last chance on the Saturday, away at Walsall. I couldn’t go to this one as I was now working on Saturday mornings but next best thing was to head to the County Ground, If Cobblers could beat Newport’s promotion rivals Portsmouth then we were up! I paid to go in the away end and it was bedlam! Thousands of Pompey fans and I couldn’t see a thing, a famous photograph of fans climbing the floodlight pylons sticks in my memory. So I had no choice, I exited the Spion Kop and paid again, this time to get in the Hotel End. No mobile phones for updates however someone had a transistor radio, and news came through that Newport were winning at Walsall! To upset the Pompey fans the Cobblers fans, to my amazement all started chanting “Newport! Newport!” I joined in of course and probably was the loudest !
Portsmouth did winnand got promoted however Newport also got promotion winning at Walsall. A real roller coaster of emotions that day!

Another memory , whilst I  used to watch the Cobblers fairly regularly in the eighties, was the shock at the crowd announcement, on a cold midweek match, of 998 (or similar) the first sub 1000 attendance at the County Ground. I also recall my displeasure at being served Happy Shopper cola out of a bottle despite the Coca-cola logo on the menu board!

Was in the Spion Kop too for that one as a kid...Hotel End full - or appeared to be!
Remember Pompey fans in the paddock with transistors relaying the Newport score.

10,774 there with around 6000 or more Pompey. Yes, bedlam!

Tabasco Kid  I also was at the England away game when it kicked off in Zurich, I know the fellow Cobblers fans you bumped into, myself I was recovering from to much beer in the afternoon.

Notts County away in the late 80s, hammering down with rain, decided to sit in the seats instead of standing on the open terrace, asked the bloke on the gate if it was away fans, turned out it was the side terrace for home fans, police wanted us to move, but we refused as didn't want to get wet, in the end they stopped anymore home fans coming in. Also a load of Liverpool fans there that day as their away game was off, they had their own bit of terrace in the rain.

I went this one too and remember people getting thrown out until the final whistle when we were held back. There’s some footage of this game on YouTube. More mud than grass. Keith McPherson got sent off as well.

I think it was the hair, that and being a superstar at the time. That combination always attracts unwanted attention from opposition supporters?

That was the game I was on about on page 1 of the thread, Jan 31st 1987. I’d forgotten the song lyrics, your right, that’s exactly what was sung, you must be the memory man? I also remember some rather derogatory comments heaped on “skill spot” Wakeley Gage who was playing for the poo in that game. Again I can’t remember exactly what was sung. Get that right as well Clarity and I’ll probably get a nose bleed?

Stepping over a small snowdrift to get to the NE toilets at Sixfields when we played Oxford in 2013. Despite it being late March  and having supported Cobblers for donkeys, I couldn't ever remember a game when it snowed from start to finish.

Breaking my own seat at in a fit of temper in the early years at Sixfields. Can't remember why, we probably shipped a last minute goal or something.

My mate, one freezing cold day at the CG, 'treating' himself to a hot soup only to find a lump of ice in it.

Breaking my seat in a fit of temper when we shipped a time added on goal at Nene Park. After the game I was in a local pub talking to a Diamonds supporting mate of mine who had sat fairly close to the away end. He said he'd never seen such an angry aggressive away crowd and cited one particular fellow in a black cap jumping up and down on his seat going mad. Yeah, that was me I said! Lol

Someone from the North stand shouting to Stan Collymore (after he had been in the papers for allegedly hitting his wife) WHO YOU GONNA HIT NEXT COLLEYMORE only for him to turn to the stand and mouth -your missus!

Breaking my seat at Bradford...… (I'm not coming out of this very well am I....it's misplaced passion, honest guv!)

A  Bournemouth player belting the ball into the upper west, only for a Cobblers fan to return it quickly and with a perfect aim to our player waiting to take the throw in which he did quickly and we scored to win 2-1. Atkins even thanked the mystery fan.

Spending the weekend in Blackpool for a Northern Soul Weekender to coincide with  the end of last season's away fixture at Oldham. In a pub and a DJ with a northern accent played a particularly great set. I went up to him after to congratulate him afterwards and in our ensuing conversation I mentioned I was from Northamptonshire and at that he shows me his fist on which he has NTFC tattooed on his fingers!!
