That finish from McAteer.  Love it. No pissing about. 

Probably mentioned this on here before but I listened to the match report on Radio 5 and it was possibly the worst ever description of a goal. Made it sound like McAteer had tapped into an empty net from 5 yards after we hit the post. Couldnt believe it when I saw the goal, what a finish.

West Ham v Bolton 1997/98 

A defeat at West Ham , but it features Taggart getting sent Off for trying to throttle Ludo Miklosko .

 

Didn’t Taggart end up with a 7 game ban? Admittedly it was lumped in with his ban for another red card around the same time?

Looking in the Records book he played the next game 1-0 win v Chelsea and then missed virtually all of the League campaign until the last 3 Games . Unsure if Todd got pissed off with him , or he got injured but he missed a fair amount of games .

I always recall the papers match report where Taggarts explanation was that he didn't throttle him, he just grabbed him by a neck, accompanied by a picture of him throttling him with both hands

I remember that picture . Imagine that great big thing doing a Homer Simpson on you.

Took some serious searching of the Bolton News archives and I was wrong about the seven game ban, it was ‘just’ a six game ban! Three for the red card and three for getting 5 bookings which seems incredibly harsh and surely wasn’t a rule that lasted very long?!

On the video it said 3 sending offs in 5 games . Todd & Taggart I'd imagine , didn't someone get sent off against United?

I was in the Domican at the time but Blake & Pallister rings a bell. 

Correct, though Pallister had his downgraded to a yellow card after the game.

Taggert was a big fucker I once saw him stood in the doorway at the Fox and Stork on Halliwell. He filled the whole doorway, if he grabbed hold of you it wouldn’t be pleasant. The game seems bereft of characters like that now, I miss that.

We went down for the weekend for this match in my mates Saab. It would have been cheaper to fly down and stay in a 5 star hotel.

 

The 4 of us ran the ICF all the way back up Green St.
