Good memory. Able to get in the directors box 3 times, mingling with Sven Errickson, MAF and his minders etc. This was due to a working relationship with a lad who was the son of Kieth Lamb, the then ceo of Middlesborough. Good view and nice food at half time and after the game.

When it comes to the Northern English it is hard to determine who were the most uncivilised.Recall Newcastle well and the Anglo-Scottish final v Middlesboro.However,the worst must be Bobby Moore's debut for us-We lost 4-0 at home to the Boro if l am not mistaken.
I remember that game.
I completely forgot that it was Bobby's debut. As I remember, for the first few games he played a sort of midfield role with Jimmy Dunne (?) continuing at 6. I remember a very very young Chris Kamara running rings around him at Pompey, the same game that Ernie Howe made his debut. After that he played his normal 6 role and things settled down.

I remember a somewhat arrogant and swaggering youngish centre forward scoring a brace for 'Boro against us in the late fifties as we won 3-2.  His name was Brian Clough and he scored almost a goal a game for 'Boro over two hundred and seventeen games.

First memory for me against the Borough, was the 74/75 the Anglo Scottish Cup Final-Final 2nd leg at Craven Cottage where we drew 0-0 but lost 1-0 on aggregate and that was an own goal!

Got attacked by a mob of Boro after a game at the Cottage in the 80s, the only time I ever got hit despite many close shaves.
