Not at the Amex, though?Mac Allister's (disallowed) thunderbastard free kick against Leicester in Sept 2022.
Beating Southampton on New Years day back in League 1 when Adkins was manager.
Getting our first ever Premier League win against West Brom the day after my stag-do in a match I almost missed.
League One at best...Albion v Charlton in the Championship: December 2015.
A barnstorming late Albion win, coming back from being 0-2 down after 5 mins.
A goal back by James Wilson after 50 mins but still trailing 1-2 with 10 mins to go, then late goals in the last 5 mins from Zamora & Hemed. Great Amex atmosphere.
With an assist in there from some bloke called Solly March...
That Ashley Barnes trip is very high on my favourite moments. My youngest son was mascot when we played Burnley a couple of seasons and told him so. Such a great moment.Yes, we all loved the day we got promoted to the Premier League and it was amazing to beat Man Utd, Chelsea and Liverpool. The Doncaster Rovers game was epic too.
But what are the lesser Amex moments deserve a place in a kind of secondary hall of fame? Three from me:
- Vicente hitting the bar against Derby County in 2012. (He scored some great goals. But when he hit the bar that day it was somehow better.)
- Ashley Barnes getting sent off for tripping the referee in the Bolton game in 2013. (This moment was arguably "Peak Barnes".)
- Ashley Barnes and Romain Vincelot being sent off in the first 11 minutes against Burnley in 2011. (We lost 1-0, but it didn't seem to matter that much.)
The old NSC myth that it was O’Hara who threw his shirt when it was in fact Roger Johnson. O’Hara would have caused a riot if he’d gone over to their fans at the end after giving them a gesture from the halfway line after they sang ‘50 grand you’re having a laugh’.A few other thoughts:
Tomasz Kuszczak (I think) pulling an opposition player's shorts down just before a goal kick.
A thrilling 3-3 against Leeds United in the 2011/12 season under the (Friday night) lights.
The 2-0 win against Wolves where Jamie O'Hara threw his shirt into the crowd and someone threw it back to him!
The 6-1 hammering of Blackpool when even the consolation was scored by an Albion player!
I stand corrected. I knew his was involved in something. Or maybe he was just gash that day.The old NSC myth that it was O’Hara who threw his shirt when it was in fact Roger Johnson. O’Hara would have caused a riot if he’d gone over to their fans at the end after giving them a gesture from the halfway line after they sang ‘50 grand you’re having a laugh’.
