They came to York in Their Thousands

Postby cricketfieldclarets » Thu Jun 14, 2018 9:47 pm

Is this our 'They think its all over' moment?

Can anyone think of any other similar quotes or pieces of commentary when you think of Burnley FC?

If that is to be the one that takes them to Wembley, you cannot argue with that, pure...quality!

What about the Plymouth away commentary to get to Wembley. Wasnt along the lines of Burnleys Claret & Blue Armada will set sail for Wembley. Think they used it in that crappy Panoma Joes song with the Johny Francis goals commentary

Thompson, with a touch past Duberry. Now Paterson. A lot of space for Paterson to run into - hes going to take it on. OH GOODNESS ME WHAT A GOAL FROM PATERSON!

You know the thing about York that you didn't realise at the time?

It was the start, the comeback to where we are now.

Burnley have done it!! Gary Parkinson who was playing reserve team football at the start of the season has scored for Burnley to seal promotion!!!

You have it spot on.

I will never forget that night as long as I live sat behind the Director's box in the York End.

Full of Burnley fans.

Totally agree with that. We turned a corner that night and although there's been loads of ups and downs since, the general trend has always been up.

Already mentioned the Clarke Carlisle commentary at Wembley, must be something from that, “What an awesome day, just look at the fans”.

“Bolton is a good job for someone else. I will stay at Burnley just as long as I’m wanted,” or do we not include lies?

There will be a whole raft of Bob Lord classics.

“We had no celebration,” Grewcock recalls. “We went to the players’ lounge, had a couple of beers, and everyone dispersed and did their own thing, I went out for a meal with friends. It was just a sense of relief. The buildup was horrible, not a pleasant situation to be in, I feel for every team now that’s in that position.”
