The 2-2 draw substitutes McAteer and Stubbs and for the replay it was Stubbs and Reeves .

For the scousers in the 2-2 it was Paul Stewart and Ronny Rosenthal , and the replay was Robbie Fowler and Don Hutchinson.

Aye, I was 15 at the time so watched the VHS recording literally hundreds of times and i know the commentary by Stinstadt(?) Word for word - "an untried 17 year old Robbie Fowler on the bench"

For the "big Big boys" there was no such thing as squad rotation or resting players back then. I remember coming home after that match and being well pissed off that we didn't win. I was not a nice person to be around for days after that match. Happy days!

Whilst I'd done Southampton in the lever end, which was my first game, this was my first full proper season on the BT near the away fans and was my first proper big match experience as it was Liverpool and when we scored i was literally swept off my feet as the BT went mad, ace 

Didn't get to do the replay as there was no space in my mates dad car but wolves in the next round was my first ever away game

Good info.  I might be imagining it but I thought Lydiate played too?  I went to Derby and we weren't at the races it felt like we'd just used up all our cup energy in the previous rounds, it was our 6th cup game, to Derby's 3rd.  In hindsight, a good game to lose, we played 7 league games in March and won 6 and still only went up by 1 point.  I don't see that happening with a big quarter final to play too.  That season was up there as one of our best ever surely.

Did Derby on the big screen beam back 

One memory of that was they kept focusing on Craig Short who looked like a hard as fuck bloke

Sort of the same with John Terry, some footballers no matter their age just look dead old and hard

Yep Lydiate did play sadly  , in fairness I was loads more gutted the following season after Oldham . 

Oldham game was probably the first game against a Premier League club where we felt we were favourites. And to be fair, the result was down to a Mark Patterson fuck up rather than getting done by a superior team.

Craig Short would rival Joe Royle in the massive head cup.  Dead hard faces - Pearce, Souness, Keane, Sheridan.  But nothing to the hard blokes that you'd come up against in Sunday league, especially when you're still in your late teens and they're early 30s with real moustaches.  I'm sure some of em only got in the team coz they looked so hard, intimidating visitors from the minute they turned up in their chevettes and sierras.  Any away win was only enjoyed once back in the car and on the road.  Great days.

It was a gut wrenching defeat and the manner of the goal hardly helped. 

Oldham , Tranmere ( League cup) and Stoke are all games were i was confident of winning more than Nervous of Losing , but in typical Bolton fashion we managed to fuck up royally.

Think Craig short or his brother was in that Scarborough team that battered us 4-0 in div 4 with Colin wanker in charge .

Craig and Chris Short were both at Scarborough when they beat us, dont know if they played.  Short followed Warnock to Notts County then later Sheff U.  One of those "top pro's" you don't really hear a bad word about.

Only Craig was in that season's squad , but he didn't play in the 4-0 game. He became a regular in the second half of the season.

 I’m my top 3 games. Left straight from school. There a few more new uploads from Andy Brandwood since Christmas 

I remember feeling almost overcome when McGinlay put that one in, struggled to celebrate properly I felt so emotional.  David Lee - what a winger, just looking at that game and the Anfield night he looked unplayable.  Obviously he could be inconsistent with his crossing, but if he was crossing like Beckham (or Morais!) every week he would never have been with us in the 3rd tier.

They were a better team than us although not on the day, that Oldham team was quality.

For those who dont mind their football in Black & White ( Quality is very good ) 

This popped up on You Tube - did not even know it was filmed 

Bolton v Man United in 1960/61 - never seen anything from  this period at Burnden - one of Nats final games

I put another on about a month ago and someone said commentator is Cliff Mitchelmore ?

This "Heavy Roller" you tuber has uploaded 200 + videos  so far -  football related stuff from the late 40s through to the early 60s and continues to add stuff regularly - worth checking in on every few weeks

There's other Bolton matches on - aways - but quality is not always brilliant

Thanks for that - always enjoy viewing some old footage.

Couple of observations - bloody cars between the pitch and terrace! 

The defending for Uniteds equalizer, crikey, keystone cops.

There’s something in the recesses of memory/stories from the past, it just looks so strange and not the Burnden Park I was used to seeing from the 80s onwards

I was expecting some full on chanting and police in the crowd by 1960 especially against Man United

First game back after 18m out & I assume someone else had the baton.

But yes, odd from today's perspective. 

I bet he took the next one. One of the worst I've seen that.

 

Good piece of film though. I'd forgotten that the invalid vehicles took the ditches.
