    Hey Bryn, nice posting with video. Found vid with Gary Charles own goal but don’t know how to get it up on here as you have.

    Anyway, with your vid and chriscl’s choice of a match commentary, my thoughts put two and two together and came up with five….

    ….somewhat off this beaten track but does anyone remember this??....

    1988 FA Cup Qtr Final; Arsenal 1 Forest 2
    On Match of the Day that night (video had been pre-set of course) after the match highlights and studio waffle they showed a brief clip that was so glorious it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. I watched it time and time again.
    I remember Jimmy Hill introducing the clip, something along the lines of “Nobody can deny the joy shown by Colin Foster as Forest’s second goal went in…”. It may even have been right at the end of the programme before the closing music.


    I’ll try and do the clip justice.

    The camera was at pitch level to the side of the goal Forest were defending. Because of this the other goal looked ‘way in the distance’.
    Colin Foster was about centre edge of our 18 yard line, back to us, watching as Clough played his trademark slicing diagonal ball through to Brian Rice.
    As Rice is running on to the ball Foster drops to his haunches.
    You could just about make out Rice ‘in the distance’. You see the ball rise into the air and start to drop.
    Suddenly the right hand side behind that goal looked like boiling water…. that was us going nuts!
    Foster leaps from his haunches and proceeds to pace up and down the 18 yard line, his fists clenched to his chest whilst ‘in the distance’ you can see the others charging off towards Rice like a swarm of bees.


    Does anyone else remember it? It was such a short but unique view of a glorious moment in time, wish I could see it again. Oh god, I loved those days. Thank you Brian Clough.

    Or the first minute ones. Majewski's in-off-the-bar has to be one of the most beautiful strikes of a football I've ever seen.

    I disappeared off into the stratosphere when Dani scored that goal. Fucking brilliant.

    And when that came through a pretty girl sitting next to me, who I had never met before, turned and spontaneously kissed me. In the Upper BC, too. I was delighted, but a bit flustered; it's not often that happens!

    Fantastic day. I was 15 years old and pissed out of my head on Kestrel Super. Chapman celebrated on his knees right in front of where we were stood - fucking brilliant.

    The following year was amazing as well when Jemmo scored. I think Steve Hodge scored in both games if I remember correctly. Two of the best away matches I've ever been to. Golden days.

    He's ground the poor teacher down on that one, 6 hours of Barry and she'd have let him wear flippers.

    I was wondering how it was going to end. Fair play to you Barry.

    The Paul Wilkinson day was a good one.He was never a favourite with the fans but won a few over that day. Remember being squashed at the back for this and the Chapman one the following year, absolutely no chance of moving unless the whole end decided to move.
