Stan Collymore needs to be in there somewhere. The most exciting few months of football I've had the pleasure to watch at Roots Hall

Q - Queens Park Rangers F.A Cup 3rd Rd Jan 75 at Roots Hall. They were top or 2nd in old First Division, & had a team full of household names, including Dave Webb.
We were 0-1 at half time, they scored again in 2nd half, then we scored twice at North Bank end within a few minutes. There was nearly a mini Ibrox disaster as 100's surged down to the wall.
QPR were lucky to hang on for a draw that day.

Z - Zaaboub for the simple reason that no other memory will start with Z, unless you opt for my wife who swore never to go to a game again after a bitterly cold Februrary game Vs Donny (I think) where we entertained Toellandback at a terminally dull 0-0 draw. :hilarious:
