  2. Happy Birthday gents. Bury have only played 5 times on your birthdays in either of your lifetimes. The only defeat was on UsedToBeThins 1st birthday in 1980, when we lost 1-2 at home to Blackburn with 13,360 fans on Gigg as Rovers were promoted and we were virtually relegated. We also played on D-L-T's 1st birthday in 1989 drawing 0-0 at home to Bolton. The games you are more likely to remember are a 3-0 away win at Lincoln in 1995, which featured a brilliant Phil Stant strike, a 1-1 draw at home to Reading in 2000 with a last minute Andy Preece goal and in 2006 a 0-0 home draw with Mansfield, which wasn't worth remembering. Have a great day today and hopefully tomorrow.
  3. Only 14, but still not very good.
  4. Yes, I saw that game we had our reserve goalkeeper John Heath playing who was rubbish and reserve centre half Harry Bunner, in place of John McGrath. We actually scored first, I was right behind the goals at the Cemmy End when Allan Jackson scored, but it was a long painful afternoon after that.
  5. We'll all have to be this 'ad utrumque paratus'.
  6. You have a Rochdale supporting friend!!!!!!!!
  7. Happy Birthday. Bury have played 22 games in all competitions on your birthday, but just 7 times in your lifetime, winning 2, drawing 4 and losing just the once. The most eye catching is the famous 0-0 draw at Watford in 1997 that got us promoted. Something we would like to see repeated this week was a 2-1 away win at SOUTHEND UNITED in 2003, with goals from Michael Nelson and Lee Connell. We drew 1-1 with Dale in 2008 with Nicky Adams scoring for us and Le Fondre scoring a penalty at the death. There was also the crazy 4-4 home draw with Portsmouth in 2014. Enjoy the day.
  8. The fat lady is not singing just yet.
  9. Fortitude had a great game, I just hope he was registered to play though.
  10. He will have Northampton fired up as he certainly has a point to prove against Gillingham, who sacked him in January.
  11. The Blackpool 4-3 home win had around 500 more in the ground than the Burton game, but Burton probably felt better as we went top of the league.
  12. If we play Barrett we would get deducted three points, which is the last thing we need.
  13. Absolutely correct. A point would have put us sixth to play fifth placed Scunny. A win would have put us fifth and we would have still played Scunny, but they would have been sixth and we would have had the second leg at home.
  14. Well done James Vaughan, lets hope you can be chosen again next season after scoring loads more goals for us in League One.
  15. Happy Birthday to both of you. You will not have enjoyed many (or maybe any Bury wins on your birthdays. Our last win was 43 years ago in 1974, a win 1-0 victory at Swansea thanks to a David Holt goal and our skipper Peter Swan was also sent off. The last win at home was in 1965, when we beat Charlton 2-0, the day after we had also beat them away 2-1. We also won 3-1 away at Newcastle in 1963. Also on this day in 1962, George Jones scored his first ever goal for Bury in a 1-1 home draw with Leeds United. We have not played at home on your birthdays since 1987, when we drew 0-0 with Bolton. Hope you both have a great day.
