I share so many of the memories above and massive thanks to everyone who bought back ones which had been 'lost'.
My own contribution is not a single game but the optimistic feeling of hope and anticipation the week or so before the season starts. Regardless of pre - season friendlies and new signings there has to be a sense of belief that this is 'our year'.

For me this will never change.

Good point Bill. I can't remember the number of times I have been totally unimpressed by some of our pre-season dealings only to see us thump some village team 4-0 in a pre season friendly and walk away thinking "Hey, that wasn't do bad, maybe this is our year"

Unfortunately, reality tends to bite before the end of August usually.

I still say that was the best performance of a Wrexham team I have ever seen.
Surprisingly Billy Ashcroft thinks so too!!

The quality, running, speed and vision shown that night was on a par with any Premiership game.

Wouldn't it be great if we could somehow repeat that level of performance sometime soon.

We can but dream!

You said it
Spurs couldn't live with us in the 1st half and the difference between this and the Arsenal game was if we had won 5-2 it wouldn't have been a travesty. We were simply outstanding from 1-11.

Ah great memories. I'd love to see highlights

Yeah the spurs away game in 76 is the one game I wished I could have gone to but at 7 years old away games were out of bounds to me then.

So for me its Anderlecht at home. QF on Cup Winners Cup. Just 1 of 8 teams left in the whole of Europe.

The continental fizz. The expectation we could realistically take on a side with 2 dutch world cup winners.

The brand new adidas kit, we had only worn for the 2nd ever time. Adidas approached us because of our incredible exploits in Europe. Imagine them doing that now.

All red, a beautiful vision and the Wrexham badge was 10 times the size of the adidas trefoil logo. Imagine that ratio happening to day? Nope. Thought not.

King Billy up front. He impressed Anderlecht so much they tried to sign him straight after the game. Ive still got the board letters somewhere documenting the offer than came in and am trying to get them to Billy.

I was sitting on my dads knee as there were no seats anywhere.

When Stuart Lee scored he was so excited he threw me high up into the air.

All i could see was the paddock below me and thinking. Oh Sh*t Im going down there.

Luckily dad caught me on the way down.

Great memories, you can never forget memories.

Thanks for the positivity PD,

It's much needed !!

My dad went to this, sadly passed away last year. I remember him coming back and seeing shattered glass in his coat. Apparently his coach had been bricked leaving the ground. He didn't take me as it was a school night, probably worked out right for me. However I still would have loved to have been there. I also still have the match programme.

One that stands out for me was beating Cambridge 5-0 in the promotion season under Dennis Smith. Think it was the last game of the season played in beautiful sunshine. We absolutely played them off the pitch from the first kick of the game. Both Carlos and Paul Edwards were immense on the wing. Don't think Trundle played in this one either.

I was 15 at the time. It was very frightening on the Tube back to Euston, when a bunch of Spurs fans were asking folk who had scored the goals for Wrexham. Thankfully, I was wise enough to say now't, otherwise I would have been thumped.

Would not have missed it for the world!
