That black lad, known as Pavarotti.

Funny as fcuk him [smi]

stocko_mfc Posted on 23/02/2012 17:20

Dbizz, i seen him not long ago...
There was a lad with a ponytail always wore the same leather jacket...used to always see him home and away since the early 80,s

Corcaigh_the_Cat Posted on 23/02/2012 17:21

Has Louden packed in?

Tyrone_Shoelaces Posted on 23/02/2012 17:21

Who was the short guy who always carried the radio about?

Tortured_Mind Posted on 23/02/2012 17:21

Sawdust, aka Market Mogga.

Barnsy Posted on 23/02/2012 17:22

Too many to list.

But most managed to find their way to Eindhoven!

Corcaigh_the_Cat Posted on 23/02/2012 17:23

Of course they did, it was European Final, soft lad.

"Of course they did, it was European Final, soft lad"

Soft lad?

Jonny_Rondos_Disco_pants Posted on 23/02/2012 17:28

Used to bump into Louden at quite a few games, he's off the radar now.

Corcaigh_the_Cat Posted on 23/02/2012 17:29

it's a Scouse term for daft.

Do you think it's odd that the cup final was popular?

Barnsy Posted on 23/02/2012 17:31

Of course not, I just despair that so many jumped ship afterwards. If you disagree with my opinion, fair enough. But leave the insults out.

Corcaigh_the_Cat Posted on 23/02/2012 17:35

We had good gates the seaon after the cup final. The dip didn't really come until after relegation, and even now they're nowhere near as bad as the crowds we got when the 'faces' we're talking about were regulars. It's funny that the Jonny Come Latelies have a dig at the blokes who were amongst the 5,000 regulars in the mid 80's.

Dollar but he was at the carling cup final

I see Cyril is there regulalry these days in the "posh seats"

Corcaigh_the_Cat Posted on 23/02/2012 17:51

Didn't he have a seat in front of the commentary team at one time so he could hear them? Used to sit near him at Ayresome at one time.

David Shalyer, or Tracy as he now know.

Dibzzz Posted on 23/02/2012 17:56

Him who used to shout 'Come on Boro', in the Holgate in a very high pitched voice.
(it was his normal voice)

Bob Mortimer used him as inspiration for Donald and Davey Stott [:D]

If that is another go at me you might be interested to know that I had a season ticket in the 80's. My season card has an 'A' prefix.

My comments still stand.

Perhaps Corcaigh's not going anymore so you've touched a nerve lad.

"Faces" You Don't See At Games Anymore.

The Bishop Brothers.

BillyWindsorsgoingbald Posted on 23/02/2012 18:34

Dibzzz, I think the bloke with the high pitched voice was called Graham. He used to be on the bus from Loftus when I used to bus it in as a lad. I'm pretty sure he also went to Upsall Hall.

spike11 Posted on 23/02/2012 18:40

The guy with the radio was Eric, also a frequent visitor to the speedway.

Graham was the one with the high pitched voice, also had a brother who looked & sounded the same.

Quite a few of my mates, which is a shame, and a bit annoying. [|)][:(!]

BillBones Posted on 23/02/2012 19:02

The high-pitched pair were the Wallis/Wallace brothers. I remember one of them supporting Forest for some inexplicable reason when we played them in the 92/93 season.

Very similar but The Stotts were inspired by two brothers who Vic Reeves used to work with.

hank from redcar with union jack cap ,bosco ,tonka ,lad who looked like him from musical youth

stocko_mfc Posted on 23/02/2012 19:14

Steptoe from the middle of the holgate... Last time i seen him he was working on stockton market. Also a lad called bubble, another nutter from the early 80's

loftusloyal Posted on 23/02/2012 19:18

lads with high pitched voices are banned from the ground.

Tortured_Mind Posted on 23/02/2012 19:18

Could Steptoe and Sawdust aka Market Mogga be one and the same?

stocko_mfc Posted on 23/02/2012 19:20

No TM he's a thornaby lad who i know quite well. Market mogga that is......

Tortured_Mind Posted on 23/02/2012 19:22

I think his real name's Peter but don't quote me on that.

borobuddah Posted on 23/02/2012 19:27

Are you on about Hank Rah~~~? ain't seen him or his brother for years? Bumpted into a lot of school mates and auld mates in Cardiff, but not them.

7_The_Informer Posted on 23/02/2012 19:29

Buddy, I was coming out of the Riverside last year and saw the Beast of Ayresome. My mate who was with me also confirmed it.

Beanz Posted on 23/02/2012 19:33

the beast is still there,you can see him selling boro lottery tickets near blue bridge and chuck wagon,i always have a little giggle when i see him and tempted to chuck 20 pence at him whilst shouting "beast beast beast" but im not 14 anymore!!!!!!!!

redwurzel Posted on 23/02/2012 19:36

I used to be on the bus from Whitby around 1983 that picked high pitched Graham somewhere near Loftus - he had quite severe learning difficulties, but you could tell he loved his football and the Boro. I got angry a few times when teenage lads found it funny to make fun of him - by saying such stuff as are in love with Tony McAndrew - Graham and sXXXXXXing.

Eric was often seen wondering around the Boro Town Centre and between the town centre and Ayresome Park with a large radio against his ear and had a large limp - he was always on his own. Not sure if he would be allowed to do that today with all this safeguarding stuff.

Barnsy Posted on 23/02/2012 19:51

"Eric was often seen wondering around the Boro Town Centre and between the town centre and Ayresome Park with a large radio against his ear and had a large limp - he was always on .."

He used to sit near the tunnel at Ayresome. John Coddington used to always give him a wave and often had a chat with him.

Squeak still used to get the bus late 90s/early noughties. His brother (same voice) was banned for scrapping apparently.

The lad at the back of the North Stad and his four young lads. He stopped when a steward walked to the back of the stand to tell his 2 yo he could not stand up.

TeessideSeasider Posted on 23/02/2012 20:50

Ingle = Hodgys doppleganger....

Went to a friendly v Ajax at AP in 1978 and he nicked a box of Super Bazooka from an offy near The Speedway...

Everyone in the Holgate that night spent most of the game trying to blow the biggest bubbles.....[:D]

stocko_mfc Posted on 23/02/2012 20:53

Standards, do you mean Peter 'Pallet'. Sells boro jackpot tickets.
He used to sing at the interval when the strippers where on at the Embassy club. He used to take his glasses off and put them in his top pocket then sing puff the magic dragon while the local loonies chucked 2p's at him.

I used to feel sorry for him myself, but he didn't seemed bothered as he was getting 'paid'.

Piggy Posted on 23/02/2012 20:55

Ingle is near enough family to me. I remember going to wimbledon away mid 80's and was stuck for a lift back. He got me on his full coach by sticking a lad in the luggage compartment without the driver knowing.

standards Posted on 23/02/2012 21:03

dunno stocko, it may be him but by sounds of that i doubt it, he was always so quiet really, usually stood ready to get off the bus and we were only in Acklam

standards Posted on 23/02/2012 21:06

80-85 he was a blue snorkel parka type of guy, big belly, but anyway he sells tickets of somesort and goes in the East stand, i hope people dont chuck 2ps at him as he was Thornaby Boro.

outmac Posted on 23/02/2012 21:19

Eric still goes , still has his radio . Sits
in the West Lower.
I remember the lads with the high pitched voices at Ayresome . Saw them a few years ago
(well heard them) at The Riverside but not lately.

TeessideSeasider Posted on 23/02/2012 22:16

That might have been me - bus was from the Mile House i think

i stowed away in the drivers sleeping area under the coach on the way home and woke up near Thirsk

First game of the 85/6 season - red hot day - Pallys first game

Lost 3-0 [sad]

Tortured_Mind Posted on 23/02/2012 22:19

Now look, so Market Mogga is aka Ditty? Can anyone confirm this as it is getting confusing. Market Mogga aka Sawdust aka Ditty has a harvest moon-like face. Well I think it's a harvest moon but don't quote me.

The twins. Were they tall guys? I think they came from Guisborough, often could be seen at local cricket games as well.

Tortured_Mind Posted on 23/02/2012 22:38

I think it may be a new moon as opposed to a harvest moon if that helps.

Where did Ray go? I think he moved to Germany to support Koln.

I used to get the same bus as Graham. He stood in the North-West (Holgate) corner and used to ask everyone if they liked Maggie Thatcher [:(!]I think he knew what he was doing [:D]

borobaldy Posted on 24/02/2012 14:45

The twins were jim and John bird, I used to work with them at British steel, sadly jim died some time back and I think John went to live in australia with relatives

I will throw in Bob the Bucket,ad nice lad but a nightmare,and Garry Ingles aka Thorburn

Marc_Feld Posted on 24/02/2012 16:29

"That black lad, known as Pavarotti." - he's in the North Stand and rarely misses a home game, he's a very good mate of mine

Stocko - Bubble used to get in the NO Institute quite regularly, Steptoe I haven't seen in years.

Eric (the Wireless) still turns up at the Speedway, sadly his dog, Skipper, passed away a while back.

DelMonti Posted on 24/02/2012 16:31

The guys with the squeky voices - Both used to have a season ticket behind me at Riverside, now only 1 does. in early days at Riverside they were sticking the V's up at some ref and the Steward came up to them and politly said 'have you two guys been swearing?' One was saying no and the otherone was proudly saying he was.

I heard one got a lifetime ban after we played a German team in a friendly and he was fighting with the Germans.

Last few games the one that still goes, his voice has been going between squeaky and normal, he has no clue who we are playing every week though, as he always taps me on my shoulder to ask

fatknackerlardarse Posted on 24/02/2012 18:17


King_Ricard Posted on 24/02/2012 18:30

Graham and Andrew Wallace, one is indeed banned. For sparking a little kid following a goal. Ended up sectioned for attacking a nana and small kid on a bus somewhere.
Ended up meeting a lass and getting a job as a bike mechanic for Aqqua Sapone and now lives in Italy following Modena

Saw Eric the wireless the other week on a bus.

Tortured_Mind Posted on 24/02/2012 19:09

So does Steptoe work on Stockton market and has a brother and I think a grandad who I think may no longer be with us who was threatening to ram a walking stick up his ars a few years ago?

'Eric' is my first memory as a new season ticket holder in 94. I never could grasp why he listened to the match and be there. Though I was very young!

Who's the black lad who runs down to the front of the west stand screaming and pointing? What a lad he is, always remember when that fight happened with Mcshane he was well involved!

Like someone mentioned before, they seemed to be the inspiration for the Stotts

Borobaldy - John Bird lives in Belmont House old peoples home in Guisborough.

He did have relatives in Australia though. We were in Perth in 1991 and walked into a shop and they were both there - I couldn't believe it being so far from home !

They were longstanding Guisborough cricket supporters and I knew them through playing there.

TeessideSeasider Posted on 02/03/2012 13:16


HaithsVets Posted on 02/03/2012 13:30


I think everyone who knew him in the day will remember Yan! In fact you might notice my username on here is a tribute to the mad fecker! His dad was a vet at the top of the Village - spent all his time in the Linny drink Sam Smiths, smoking Embo Regal bent of the pool table. His legend phrase when he was looking for trouble... was... "Ow! Fancy it eh? I'll tap yer feckin' napper off!"

On me 21st in the Linny we'd been to the match and everyone had been pouring 'DIngeon Handshakes" (top shelf cocktails) down me neck and we'd all run out of money. Yan dissappears and truns up on his unicycle with a litre bottle of whiskey he broken out of his dads drinks cabinet!

Every other Friday - he'd do an all day sess in teh Linny bar, then at last orders, he'd get a Plastic 4 pint Flagon of Smiths off Roy - get 20 Regal out the machine and set off hitching by himself to the next days away game!

Remember when he came back from Brum covered in scars and scabs. He'd had a right good kicking. Turned out he'd apparently 'stormed' a home pub near St Andrews - by himself! I used to call him Jonny Seven (One Man Army) after that! :)

I'm not condoning some of that behaviour of course, not these days anyhow, but like I said - A true Boro Legend was Yan!

DCI_Gene_Hunt Posted on 02/03/2012 13:35

Yan Haith - as you say, anyone who knew him would remember him! I wasn't a mate of his but was in the Linny most of the late seventies/early eighties and knew his sister. He was certainly a character! Where is he these days?

MawTheMerrier Posted on 02/03/2012 13:47

Funny that Badgie I used to go to games with two profoundly deaf fella's Chris Lowe from Marske and Alan from Stockton. Dunno what became of Alan, but Chris hasn't been for many years.

Dunno what work Alan did, when we went to games we were15/16 and still at school.

Remember getting caught up with a police charge outside Clive road, a squad car with lights and sirens going screeched to a halt inches from Chris's back when they realised he wasn't getting out of the way. I had to explain he was deaf, but they wanted to nick all 3 of us [:D]

Tommy Bishop....didn't he climb the fence at Elland Road to offer Arthur Graham out?

A good lad is Tommy Bishop. See him regularly but the last time at a match was in Eindhoven. Told me he was packing it in, sadly he's kept his word.

Actually saw him yesterday! Has a young 'un these days. Was a good guy, but owed people fair bit of money and wasn't the most reliable when it came to busses and paying back money. Can't fault the lads energy. Claimed to play for Darlo ressies for a bit to!
