If it was memorable moments it would have to be for me, the 77/78 season, in a matter of two months on the 5th of January we played Liverpool at home in front of 25.500 and lost 1-3 with the great Kenny Daglish playing for the scousers in the League cup.

Then on the 6th March, we played Arsenal at home again in front of 25.500 and got robbed with a 2-3 loss in the FA Cup.

Where did it all go wrong.

Yes Red I remember those 2 matches Robbed v Arsenal but Liverpool were a bit better. - Team on both occasions never outclassed and fantastic crowd.
We all have views as to what went wrong and when.

Lots of things have gone wrong over those decades, as well as getting alot of things right but we were punching well above our size through the 70s and significantly assisted by qualification into Europe via the Welsh Cup.

For me it was going to Anderlecht, with my late dad on a Majestic Travel trip. It was March 1975 and a flight from Manchester. Wandering around Brussels tasting this new tangled Stella Artois - did it catch on?
The city centre was full of dream cars, but all overshadowed when a Tecwyn Price coach flew round a corner with Eric Woodfine shouting at us. The Stadium was full and the locals plied us with Brandy. Considering the form book suggested a 4-0 home win, we did amazing to keep them down to one nil. Mickey Evans did ever so well against local hero Rob Rensenbrinck. As a 14 year old lad, I couldn’t imagine life getting better than this. A magic day out.

Last ever Welsh Cup final in the Arms Park against Cardiff. Both won the cup the same amount of times and our last ever year in it Beating them in Cardiff was amazing. Carrington goal at Stoke was amazing, Keiran Durkin putting us one nil up at United. Beating Middlesbrough with all their starts. Beating west ham away.

Thinking about it, does anyone really believe them good times will ever come back in our lifetime?

Great game.

Never knew Andy Marriott played for them that day

https://www.coludata.co.uk/item.php?...escomp&it=2417

Vivid memories of that match as we were losing 1 - 2.
During the game we had every type of weather imaginable.
I was on the Kop and it was if an electric switch was flicked - the weather blew up, wind was howling and we were kicking towards the kop - as though the Gods were willing us to win and so we did with 2 goals.
It was a massive game at the time as we were running neck and neck for bottom spot and relegation - think ex Ipswich Town and England full back Mick Mills was the manager of Colchester United at the time.

Also whilst talking about Colchester - the season we gained promotion mid week by winning 0 - 2 at Northampton - the following Saturday we played our final league game at home to Colchester - nearly 10,000 there to see us win in an enthralling match 4 - 3 with a late Steve Watkin winner in the kop end.
Colour, scarves, ticker tape - game played in an electric atmosphere and on the pitch at the final whistle in our thousands.

We truly did have some magical times under the reign of Brian Flynn.
