    Extrapolating from the number of my Albion friends who claim to have been there, I reckon there were at least 14k in attendance (I wasn’t one of them)! Rather similar to those who saw Case’s goal...
    It's the Gillingham equivalent of Nelson's goal at Brentford.

    I went to nearly all the pissfilled games (25 minutes drive from Faversham) but I don't remember this one. I do remember being tonked 1-5 by Millwall in the fannybygaslight trophy one sad evening, with the legend that was Jamie Moralee scoring one of his legendary rare goals (deflected in off his well-travelled cock, if I remember correctly). If that helps.
    I seem to recall we went 1-0 up thanks to that goal and Moralee tried his hardest to miss it from about a yard out hitting the underside of the bar before going in. He then proceeded to kiss the badge only to be met by howls of laughter from the Rainham(??) end.

    Again I was in the main stand with the players wives ....bit of a pattern emerging here....and it was full of the most heinous Millwall fans you could imagine. They were particularly horrendously abusive to keith Dublin ( black centre back who played in London before he joined us...it may not have been keith!) I think it was....what made it worse was his family were sat behind me and left after about 20 minutes listening to things like " die you n*gger *******" and such like....
    Dublin surely wasn't still playing during the Gillingham days was he? Man mountain of a player!!

    I was there. And now I can't get an away ticket for any game that I want to go to.

    I was there and now I can't get an away ticket for love nor f**king money because I'm not loyal enough. The closet I'll get to an away game this season is bringing my used car back to the dealer which is two minutes walk to the Liberty stadium on Saturday for a spare key. How times changes Kidderminster, Hartlepool, Barnet. How crowds have indeed changed.
    Really don't get this attitude. If you'd been to enough games you'd have enough points. Simple as. Just because you went to a game at Gillingham or even all of them doesn't mean you have a given right to a ticket 20 years later.

    Far from being one of those who moans about not being able to get tickets 'because I went to the Goldstone/Priestfield/Withdean' I'm just glad to see that we have a thriving club with a new / returning generation of Albion fans. If that means I can't get a ticket for Man U away then that's a small price to pay. I'd have certainly taken that 20 years ago.
    Is the correct answer!

    All the time demand outstrips supply then someone is going to miss out and someone is going to be miffed about missing out on ticket. The loyalty scheme has been in place for several seasons now and if you'd gone to enough games you'd have enough points to get tickets.

      @Lindfield by the Pond and I were there. On the way home, Richard Spurs Supporting Littlejohn on the 5 live phone in that night - because England played at Wembley - asked, “...And if you were one of the 1,025 Brighton fans at tonight’s game, give us a call and tell us....why?”

      Was utterly dejected and I think we felt lower than the opening game against Macclesfield which just felt weird. But that night, after the result and seeing the tiny smattering of fans who’d gone, I truly did stare into the abyss and think that as a club we were gone.

      Anyway fast forward 20 years and can I get a ticket for Old Trafford?!!! Can I f uck!!! Where were you when you were shit, the opponents cry? At Gillingham I reply! And proudly so. Because there are many more liars today than the 1,025 souls who did make that journey on 05.11.97. It’s a badge of honour really.

      Probably worth remembering this thread when Rashford or whoever gets a hatrick and this board’s full of knee jerks!
      Agreed only missed 2 games at Gillingham this was one of them ,sounds like it was a good thing !

      I wasn’t complaining, just stating a fact. The difference is that then I didn’t have any responsibilities so could go to as many away games as I wanted, where as now I have, and so I can’t.

      My point was more in agreement to the ‘how things have changed’ sentiment.
      "I am repeatedly a fan of his braggish self-assurance. No point, that I can remember, has he ever been foolish or incorrect. All based on scientific, biblical fact. He's a vivid sermoniser whose halo sometimes burns those who dare to question."

      What was the highest attendance we had at Gillingham?. I seem to remember going to one game with around 6K there. I think it was because we all thought it would be the last game there but believe we had another season there......or did I dream that?
      Brighton & Hove Albion will be there long after the current players, manager,chairman......thanks to who?...you of course!

      The fans United game v Doncaster was the highest gate there - just over 6,000. Possibly the worst game of football I’ve ever seen

      I think the Darlington game might top the awfulness for me.. 0-4 and Gabbiadini was it, with the hatrick who got the big old round of applause for it.
