So seven in fifty  years but  none in last 25 years. .. . Just after the start of the Premier league.  Interesting.  I'm  a pretty positive guy  but top four , despite being 'possible ' was unlikely  at best .

We get an honourable mention for 86/87 😊

Indeed we do HIWEM as we finished 6th following promotion.

5th, actually 😎

If memory serves me right, we beat Arsenal at highbury last day of the season 2-1

Myself and a friend celebrated by getting píssed in London, and on the train home, and subsequently decided to break into Carra Rud at about 1am to kiss the centre spot. This attracted the attention of the local constabulary. Luckily, something kicked off at a nightclub and we were booted out of the back of the police van before the nick could be completed 

The copper who pulled us was a guy we knew, I used to play cricket with him 😀

We climbed over the walls/fences at the river end, rather than cause damage breaking in, btw...not that that was a sensible thing regardless 

I've just googled that season, what memories, winning at Old Trafford, beating Liverpool... I think the win at Leicester was the famous Trevor Putney goal 😃

So are we going to finish top 4 ? 

If everyone draws every game except those they play against us, and we win every game from here on in, I think we’d finish third...

Of course it can be done, not for us this season oof course, but Sheff Utd are currently in the top six - and dare I say it but even Binwich finished 5th in 2001 on promotion. We lost our championship winning momentum, but still have the ability and method to get further up the table - that can be done too, maybe not 4th or top six, but up into the pack.

88/89 finished 4th and FA cup semi finalists.  Finished reading City in the 80's last night good read for those remembering the club through that decade.

Is six points in the next two games impossible?

This is the last chance hotel imo so let’s see how we react. 

What’s different about us is we are young, the manager hasn’t “lost the dressing room”, we have some class players and a striker that will score.

Long shot from here but we are pretty unique so past records from other clubs don’t mean that much.

Top four here we come ( or maybe just staying up)

This is starting to sound like the history channel. We should be careful we do mot morph into that lot down the road😱

Point taken 🙂

But for people like me who used to go back then, it's nice to  read and post about those days, both good and bad times

The difference with the neighbours is that some of them think history has some relevance to the present day and age

I think you’re a very naughty boy HIWEM 😂. Do you wish you hadn’t told us about that ?

Out of curiosity, did you scale that big gate between the River End and the old South stand ? That’s how we got in after a big night out . Ran around like drunken idiots ( Norwich Bitter of course ) scoring imaginary goals against Ipswich in front of the Barclay . I had a crisis of confidence getting back over the gate and got stuck on the top . Needed a lot of coaxing to get down . Nobody saw us . 
Shocking behaviour of course .... but bloody brilliant all the same .

Hell if I remember now! it was certainly the South Stand side of the River End, I remember there was barbed wire on top, because I cut my hands to bits. I thought it was a wall, but I could be wrong

It happened quite recently (maybe last year?) They celebrated with a slide in front of the Barclay. All on camera of course🙃
