Let's have a positive, happy thread.

What have been your favourite moments in time supporting BWFC?

Not the best season or the best result, but the actual moment something special happened.

Off the top of my head the top 3 for me are:

1) Ricketts scoring the winner at Old Trafford.

2) Wilbraham's last minute winner to keep us up.

3) Gardner's solo effort against PNE at Cardiff.

Too hard Nat, so off the top of my head..

Worthy's goal against Ipswich. I was right behind it.
The come back against Reading in the play off final.
Wilbraham's last minute winner.
Watching a bunch of kids play their hearts out for the shirt and get a draw against Coventry.

So many more, it's hard to think.

1) Walking through the door of the Wanderers dressing room for the first time on match day when i was a ball boy at Burnden aged 13 with my boots in my hand.

2) De Freites equaliser v Reading at Wembley

3) Final whistle after we stayed in the prem by beating Boro, it meant we kept that great side together with much more to come.


Worthy scoring against Ipswich i was right on the 18 yard line probably everyone's number one who saw it, but already mentioned

Impossible to compare the highs. From a pure football perspective it was perhaps watching a team come together to make the Mark Davies goal v Blackpool

Best moment/game was beating Reading in the play off final after being two down and a penalty against us about to be taken.

I had taken my two little nephews who were about 8 or 9 at the time and they were getting a bit upset as you do at the age, so I told them that they would miss the penalty and we would go on to win the match.

When they missed the penalty and we got one back then two, they fully believed we were going to win - so was I by then!

A rather random happy moment was when I heard we had signed Campo on a permeant, he was previously with us on loan.

When he first joined us he played as a centre back and was utterly awful.

For some reason Allardyce switched him to playing in front of the back four he was a revelation and kept us up that season.

When we signed him before the start of the next I was absolutely certain that his signing alone was enough to keep us in the PL and we did - and prospered.

Funny how one man sometimes makes the team.

I'm not really a massive Campo fan (my favourites are Peter Thompson and Tony Dunne from years back and Hierro when we had him for that wonderful half season (we had him for the season but something didn't click and we even transfer listed him in January - and no one went for him!).

Well he certainly clicked from then until the season end and what pure class he was.

He must have been an outstanding player in his prime.

Old boys might remember a ref called Maurice Fussey, who more than lived up to his name.
When any incident needed seeing to, he'd sprint into action, knees almost hitting his chin, whilst gesticulating wildly.
I remember a particularly wet day at Burnden, when he sprinted across to deal with some minor handbags, and came to a sudden full stop in front of the offenders. At this point, his legs went from under him, landing him on his arse, causing him to continue speedily, and majestically along the turf, and into the gravel by the side of the pitch. It was a glorious sight, and I've never forgotten it. Still makes me laugh just thinking about it.

Good idea for a thread. It reminds me that there have been some good times supporting Bolton.

1. The comeback against Reading in the play offs
2. Worthington's goal against Ipswich
3. Beating Leicester 5 - 0 away in the first game after we were promoted to the Prem.

1, Winning away at Highbury in the FA Cup, only got the chance to go that morning and is still my favourite away game.

2. The reading comeback

3. Stuart Holdens goal against Blackburn

4. When the fella in the blue Reliant Robin that uses to be on the side of the pitch at Burnden got a ball full in the face, No one knew if they could laugh or not  Laughing

I remember only one person laughing.

Now I know who it was.

Impossible to compare so many great moments. From a pure football/teamwork perspective perhaps it has to be SKD to Elmander to Klasnic to Davies v Blackpool....ever so briefly we looked like world beaters.

No question the Reading play off win and I’d single out OC’s salmon leap goal as the moment of the match when the comeback was on. Our Wolves win in the play off semi final when Super John became the Nemesis of the pretend Wanderers and their Steve Bull. So many great memories but for some reason queueing up for FA cup tickets outside Burnden for the game against Liverpool in the seventies sticks vividly in my mind and perhaps surprisingly wishing the Newcastle fans well in the cup after they beat us in the third cracking game at Elland Road. Sir Nat coming onto the pitch to launch lifeline with his heartfelt speech, against Gillingham I think. All great memories and so many more over the years.

The three games against Newcastle a real epic FA Cup tie, went to all three games great entertainment.

THe Leicester 5-0 was a good one that was the day my eldest daughter got married, we had just signed the register i looked to the back of the church my mate was mouthing 4-0 i gave the thumbs down shaking my head in disappointment, he gave a thumbs up, going on to score another a good day that was.

Excuse my ignorance, but who's the guy on the left flank who starts the main part of the move.... all dribble and skilful left foot?  scratch

One I don’t think has been mentioned yet - the Chungy winner away at Birmingham in the FA cup quarter final. Turned out to be the highlight of that cup run, always good to win it late on but even better as it secured a trip to Wembley (don’t worry about what came next).

First leg of the league cup semi final against Villa too, a great game and that Okocha free kick will always be one of my favourite goals.

Allardyce header V Sundeland  was massive at the time.
Elmander away at Wolves sublime skills

Beating Man City in the League Cup 3rd round in 1971. 42,000 plus inside Burnden, most of us shouting vile abuse at Franny Lee. Lives long in the memory of anyone there.

Remember that bonce, another from the past i'd choose would be a league cup replay v Liverpool in the 60s, we won 3-2, we were only teenagers and the build up to the game and then to win was something i'll always remember.

Some great memories the more you read the more you remember.

What a night it was at Burnden when we beat Swindon coming back from the dead, to take our place at Wembley to face Liverpool. Thommo's goal wasn't bad either

Yes I’d forgotten about that game against Swindon Wessy, spoiled earlier with all the rain but what a goal from big Mixu to win it. Another great memory.
