Have people forgotten Peterborough? It got mentions at the beginning of the thread (13 years ago!) and it still ranks highly for me... and the return to GP.

Of course! Going to an away game with the hope we could sneak second place; hearing others telling you the scores from other games from their transistor radios; Blissett's goal; Birmingham, nailed on champions, losing at home to Stockport. Wild celebrations for our goal, wild celebrations at the end, then manic drive back to GP for celebrations on the pitch.

Yeah great. Football league so sure Birmingham were going to win the trophy was at their game iirc. Stockport - whatever happened to them?

Thanks Ruislip and apologies jlove.

I was on crutches for the Posh game but still managed pretty good celebrations :sorted:

I also saw a birminscum fan on an England away trip later that year and he had the front to wear a brum badge with Third Division Champions. He said they were selling loads on the final day of the season. I absolutely slaughtered him.

Could only get a ticket in the Home stand. Under strict instructions from wife that if we score we must stay quiet for our safety. We score I leap to my feet shouting 'Get In' I look around and everyone is seated looking daggers at me, including my wife!

Yep, daylight robbery by us that day. Was also absolutely freezing.
It was. A load of snow fell the days before. Absolute bedlam in the away end. And a quality performance from Chesney

A few other favourites that I'm not sure have been mentioned:

Schlupp's injury team equaliser at Notts County on Easter Monday in 2011. Nothing riding on it for us but meant loads in the context of the game.
Owusu's hat-trick at Roots Hall in 1999 and winner at Cambridge on the last day.
Chris Moore injury time at Brighton during Leroy's spell
Alex Rhodes winner at Yeovil on a Tuesday night in 2006

Walsall away 2-2 - Douglas?
Seem to recall it was shortly after the peroxide blonde keeper had been mocking us and then he made a shocking fumble to gift us the first. A few minutes later and into injury time we levelled in front of us and the stand went radio with some of the yoof managing to get onto the pitch and join in the celebrations.

He did in the bright sunshine and for the first half they outplayed us and while we were better second half it looked until the death that we wouldn't score if we played all day..

Think it’s been mentioned before but the second at Blackburn during the cup run, first wasn’t bad either.

The biggest away celebration for snob goal might be Cadette at Liverpool in the same season as Blackburn.

Friday night game, 21st January 1973 at Edgeley Park, Stockport; Bobby Ross scoring the only goal of the game to cement our place in the promotion places of the Fourth Tier; I know it was mental becuase, as far as I was aware, I was the only Brentford Supporter there; great scenes tho . . . . . . .

That apart Charlie's goal at the Franchise and the way he ran round the goal to celebrate with us was something special.

Can't remember if it was Robbie Cook or Kamara but the 3rd goal in the 2-3 win at Bournemouth Freight Rover Southern semi-final. Absolutely mental!
