Scored a great winning goal at Doncaster away on a cold cold afternoon which was the highlight of a what was pointed out to later a rather drab nil nil encounter. Still no idea why it was cancelled out but explains why I was the only one acting like we had won the cup at the end

I thought Burton got a touch on it? Was he offside?

Maybe your right come to think about it and my drunken recollection mind is piecing together different games to give me a fake version of reality. Owusu was there for the Paul Brooker goal at Swindon rather than the Donnie super Stuart Nelson hoof and hope wonder goal

That was a bitterly cold day and from where I was stood behind the goal it was a goal.

Hated his kissing the guns as he booted another ball out of the stadium

I was stood side-on to it, and yes, it was a perfectly legit goal. If my memory's not playing tricks, it was disallowed for a non-existent foul by Deon Burton on the home keeper.

Brentford goalkeeper Stuart Nelson had a goal disallowed as his side earned another valuable point in their bid to earn a place in the play-offs.
Nelson netted with a huge clearance which opposite number Andy Warrington seemed to fumble, but it was ruled out for a push by striker Deon Burton.

Good to know the old grey matter's still working! Yep, Deon jumped with the keeper but barely touched him. Penultimate time we played them at Belle Vue I think, but certainly the last time I went.

Did you see some of the times goals were scored though? 90+18 and 19+21!

Apparently the goalie was knocked out and the game was stopped for 16 minutes.
The young Brighton loanee, heavy concussion , but now released from Crawley hospital.
Old Gary was in shock after, nice to see old players doing well.

My favourite memory of Stuart was at Notts County when Clayton, who was barely a yard away from the touchline, lobbed him for our equaliser 30 seconds after half time.
Must have been about 2011 as Martin Allen was the County manager.

Loads of our away support missed the goal as they were still finishing their half time refreshments, I was fortunate in the fact that I had a pint before kick off and it was so bad that I decided not to bother and stay in my seat.

Not too bad that you managed to stay in your seat.

It still annoys me that Mark Wright got a pro contract and game time because of a publicity stunt.

From what I recall - and I may be completely wrong here - he comes from a relatively wealthy family.

I had reason to deal with for work purposes a couple of times and found him to be a bit of a cock.
Played in the Bees v fans game and he was great, especially towards my son. Couldn't have been nicer.

Inspirational really. Fit as a butcher’s dog.
The YouTube interview Dorking put up was quite interesting.

Has spent all summer training with Bristol Rovers and has no intention of quitting the game any time soon, hopes to earn a longer deal at Dorking or elsewhere this season.

Apparently employs his own fitness instructor and plans his meal and macronutrients down to the gram!

That's all well and good but has he learnt to keep his goal kicks on the pitch yet?

Supposedly Dorking have a unique (at that level) way of playing out from the goalkeeper with the ball on the ground. That will be interesting to see!

That actually looks quite nice.
Yes, the mittens are a nice fondant signature salute to Stuart’s ability in the air and, indeed, command of the ball, whilst the gingerbread hearts are a loving tribute to my 37th most favourite Brentford goalkeeper ever 💕

A Christmas one for him

Anyway back to SN.

Yeah he may not have been a world beater and a bit of a hot head/tit when he was younger.................... But for a player who played over 100 games for us and kept 21 clean sheets in a season he has my respect. Loved giving it to the away fans which gives him some brownie points IMO.

Trouble is whenever he did that we invariably went on to lose, he inspired the till then silent fans into a rabid mob who in turn got their team to turn it on

Oh yes he was wasn’t he. How embarrassing. Nelson used to cost us lots of points with his howlers. Seemed cocky too. No wonder Ben Hamer never warmed to him.

According to his full adult footballing record, Mittens never even scored a goal for us - no wonder we sold him on to Orient. Useless.

Stuart Nelson was signed for £10,000 from Hucknall Town in 2004, having played just 20 games for them.

In their bar, Hucknall have proudly displayed a framed, signed shirt of his. I'll get a photo of it next time I'm there.
