Edited On: 03/12/2019 10:20This day back in 83
3rd december seen Stephen Pears play his penultimate game for the mighty Boro & his final away game on his 1st loan spell that season away to Charlton, 5 games & 3 goals conceded

The 2-0 loss meant we were still struggling at the wrong end of the table but Malcolm Allison has unearthed a gem [^]
Our 1st ever loanee has transformed our defence, played heroically & will 'hopefully' become a future target for the mighty Boro when we can get a bit of money to try & prize him away from Man Utd

Big Mals team

Stephen Pears - Future Boro legend
Paul Ward - Ever present for the entire season
Tony Mowbray - Future captain marvel
Gary Hamilton - Wore 7 different shirt No's that season, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, 11 & 12
Mick Baxter - RIP Mick, missed one game all season, the final game & then sold to Pompey
Irving Nattrass - Probably the only time in his career he played every single minute of a season, including cup games
Stephen Bell - RIP Stephen, he wore 5 different shirt No's that season, 7, 8, 10, 11 & 12
Mick Kennedy - RIP Mick, an excellent aggressive, give everything type of player, didnt score a goal that season the fans loved him
Heine Otto - Absolute quality, head & shoulders above anything we had back then probably in the 2nd divison too, should have graced our better teams, just before, or after our dark period
Paul Sugrue - I liked his time at the Boro, a good signing from big Mal
Dave Currie - IMHO, another good signing, scored 15 league goals that season

This day back in 83
I was in the directors' box for this game as a guest of Boro and it was a real slice of football as it was in the early 1980s.

The Valley was still undeveloped, with the massive terrace on the far side and there were a few thousand supporters rattling around the ground, which had a capacity of about 60,000, massively reduced by large sections being closed for safety reasons, on a cold, grey, damp December afternoon. Boro never got going and were marginally the worse of two poor teams.

The padded seats in the directors' box were very comfortable though.

This day back in 83
I was at that game. Sat in the Charlton end with a couple of Redcar lads. Got sussed by whatever mob Charlton had, and fought a fighting retreat all along their famous East Terrace. Then safely back in the Boro end behind the goal. I was only 15 , but i enjoyed my first pint at York station on the way home. Was only maybe 200 Boro there.
