4-1 if you count the goal that the Macum fan scored against us.

:lol:

I still hate Chris Bart-Williams.

At least we had the cups to cheer us up that season. Especially Parky's 30 yarder against Wolves.

Was that the Sunderland game when it absolutely pissed with rain? I was on the Tilehurst end and wettest I have ever been at a match. Literally can't remember anything else about the game, minor details like who won, just the soaking.

No, the 4-0 game was played in sunshine. September/October time IIRC.

Asaba was unplayable that day. A shame he never lived upto that potential, a real waste of talent.

That was great!....Then we went to Sunderland on a Tuesday evening and got what was, at that time, a record crowd in the Stadium of Light of IIRC 44,000+ and lost 4-1. I remember our chants of "5-4 on aggregate".

Sunderland at that time were rather as we became, in that they had a new stadium but the team was disappointing.

Some things don't change, though. Instead of a long trip for an evening game to Sunderland, we have one to Newcastle this year!
