What's your most memorable FA cup game?

Recommended Posts

Take your pic from anfield or highbury for me. both special nights. Was also at wolves in 93 and that was a moody as fuck day just i was getting into all the nonsense and it certainly set me back. 
 

Southampton home also sticks in my mind as probably the first time in my bolton watching lifetime that I actually felt we may one day have a place back up with the big boys.

The usual ones from the Rioch era but I also enjoyed Witton Albion around 1991ish and Wrexham 1987

Obvious ones Liverpool arsenal etc 

brum was amazing 

but for me Fulham away in the 5th round was memorable, had to beat Wigan in a replay on the Wednesday then travel to Fulham on the Sunday., Over 1100 went which given the turn around was👌

Beating Charlton at home in the quarters. First time in a generation or two that we’d got so far. The semi is even more memorable, but I’d rather stick with the positive.

Sentimental and not one for the masses but losing at home against Sheff Utd in 2008, first FA Cup game my lad had ever been to and my mrs was ready to drop another that day.

Only 2 English players in the 16 man squad according to him, have we ever had less in a squad for a game ?

Yeah ........I'm going to agree with you on this one. That was quite a day and quite a feeling. The Birmingham Quarter Final win was also magnificent but this marginally shades it because it came first and as you say - first time in a generation.

We got to to go Wembley twice with those quarter final wins. I wonder where they'd have played Bolton v Villa and Bolton v Stoke if it had still been in the days of neutral venues for the semis? Old Trafford? Anfield?

You're right. Anfield has hosted semis, but not in our time watching the game. Not unless you're in  your 90s 🙂 

Anfield has said semis the same number of times as Burnden - five

If you also look some of the southern teams arsenal, Chelsea & millwall were stiffed with old trafford games from a travelling perspective

Yeah true 

Semis shouldn’t be played at Wembley imo 

plenty of adequate stadiums north & south

I’d have said Hillsborough for the Villa game, reasonably equidistant. Stoke would have had to have been at Old Trafford, only ground to have a sniff of fitting everyone in given there were 75,000(!) at Wembley.

From memory we only took about 25,000 to Wembley for Stoke. Reckon it would have been well in excess of 30,000 at Old Trafford! 

Can't remember how many we took v Villa.

Seem to remember it being 22,000ish for the Villa game. I (thankfully) didn’t go to the Stoke game as I didn’t have much cash at the time and the cheap tickets didn’t make it to general sale, so I figured I better save my money in case we got to the final 🙄

Liverpool. Everton. Arsenal. All very special for different reasons.

Arsenal gets the nod because it was a day off work and it was a brilliant day from begining to the end.

That's my favourite closely followed by the 2-0 win at Liverpool.

Newcastle home game and 2nd reply were OK but we didn't get through so for me the quarter final at Birmingham would be 3rd
