    It was a Monday night match and was a massive match for our promotion chances.

    Can't believe it was four years tonight, I have more reasons to have fond memories of this game as my wife went into labour with my eldest son about an hour before kick off.

    My phone kept me updated and the midwifes did not take kindly to my over excitement at the final result .

    Anyway this match will always stay close to my heArt for a lot of reasons

    The following morning my son was born and my team were on the verge of a must needed promotion = a happy chappy

    Any matches that stick out for personal reasons ??

    The one that finally results in Pardew's sacking will have significant meaning for me.

    Pardew-related insults aside, football does not intertwine with important aspects of reality. It's an affliction, at best, being a supporter but it isn't a gauge for life. If life is football, we may as well all walk into the fcking ocean.

    Any of Pardew's managerial masterclasses. There have been too many to pick one out.

    I was watching the game in my local social club when some one crashed into the wall outside just as the penalties were taking place.

    All outweighed by yesterday's clueless inept performance.

    Pardew out!

    I think the thread title should be "Remember" not "Forget"

    The 4-4 game with Arsenal always because it was the day before my birthday. It was such a cracking couple of days and It was the happiest I've probably ever been. I was in such joy and disbelief when Tiote scored, and it's probably the most emotional I've ever been.

    I also remember the 5-1 game. It was the first derby I ever attended, and I was so scared to enter the ground. I thought it would be a tight match and really didn't want to lose. I went mental when Nolan's 2nd goal went in. We were really going to win!!!

    I don't really feel the same about the team now. I don't care about being high in the table as much as I do about passion and great days like that.

    You're not going to see much passion while Pards is still here.
