I thought it might be nice to have a thread where people post their favourite moments from games or great memories, just to remind us why we are all here!


I'll start with this Mark Walters goal. I practiced emulating the Cruyff turn and left foot curler again and again for months after this! A loss in the game but a full house in the Championship and one of the best Swindon goals I've seen.

For me this wins hands down in my time of being a Town fan (1974 on).



Even getting to the Premier League and the games at Wembley for the play offs don't beat it.

Arsenal were a top top club and their line up that day had 9 internationals.

This came to mind.
A dismal season & a shitty time for all of us, but a moment of joy amidst the gloom.

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
Crap!

I remember Mark Walters scoring a beautiful lob, same game that Horlock handled on the line and got sent off. Any idea who that was against? I canít remember for the life of me

First taste of playoffs (having just missed the Brighton last minute equaliser in 03/04).

Martin Tyler makes it even better - AUSTIN GOING IN!

Continuing the theme of nothing great really happening in the 21st century, the screamer in this game from Ty Gooden always sticks in my mind.

Getting to Wembley in 1990 by beating Blackburn. I was only 1 in 1969, and i remember coming out of Kenilworth Road in 1988 after losing the Simod Cup semi-final thinking that was my chance gone of seeing us at Wembley.

What happened afterwards sucks, but my memory of that evening still sticks with me, invading the pitch at the end, celebrating etc.

In my top 3 probably which is a little sad bearing in mind the circumstances but what a moment.

An absolutely mental way to win the opening match of the season
