Also glad someone has mentioned Wilkinsons goal at Burnley in 91/92, that still remains the best game of football that I've seen with my own eyes. I'm glad someone also confirmed that Castledine's goal actually happened against Blackpool because I'd convinced myself that it was a figment of my imagination. I remember seeing a Castledine run and dribble from his own half, I think a reserve game against Sheffield Wednesday or someone, where it felt like he had the ball for about 5 minutes and beat everyone twice, only to be stopped by a great save from the keeper. I even think their players had their heads in their hands at being deprived the best goal anyone had ever seen.

I think Cyrille's goal was against Rochdale, and I remember Whitehall scoring a couple of crackers in his season with us.


I, along with loads of other Stags fans, got a parking ticket at that Burnley game. We parked near the ground and the local police said we were OK to park where we did - only to return to a yellow sticker and glue that took 2 years to get off. It was a great game. George's goal is right up there for loads of reasons, the atmosphere and roar when he scored, the quality of the goal and the fact it was Big George - a proper legend.


Agreed re Foster, legend on the field and off it as one of the few managers over the decades to get us a promotion. I was saddened when I read what he remembered the most was the way he was hounded out by the boo boys when things started to go wrong for him as it clearly soured his legendary status, at least from his perspective.

George Foster screamer vs Wigan gets my vote. I got strangled by Mike Galloways's scarf in West Stand lower and stood next to a very young Steve Foster

Not a classic but for nostalgia Ernie Moss at Field Mill vs Colchester, 28th Oct 1978. My first game at Field Mill

Greenie at Hereford. That is something that will live with me as long as I draw breath. That is probably the most important Stags goal I have ever seen.

Close behind are Calvin's and Liam's goals against the sheep............

......and Christie's goal against counteh was something else.

Think the greenacre one you are in about is against darlington at home 4-2.

Got put 1on 1 with keeper but decided to curl it top corner from corner of area.

For me it was john stenson at field mill about 1971
He headed the ball so hard from about 12 yds out into the net, that he had concussion for a short while.
For the life of me I cannot remember who against

Maybe not the best goal ever but Andy White against Barnsley sure does stick in my memory. A cheeky little 'megnut' then into the back of the net.

I remember Ian Stringfellow scoring a brilliant dribbled goal in a Freight Rover game at Field Mill.....
It may have been against Donny Rvrs (Dont quote me on that) but he dribbled past numerous players and placed his shot into the Quarry Lane end goal........

For sheer joy........Liams goal at Saltergate and Foster goal v's Wigan are winners but a special mention to Stanty's goal at Scunthorpe in our 4-1 away win before he climbed onto the 8ft fencing and celebrated with the fans....I enjoyed that one !!!

One of Keith Cassells' best.


The photo of Neil Whatmore and Cassells celebrating was on the front of the programme for much of that season I think - for me it is one of the most iconic Stags pictures ever taken. What a player Keith was, just absolutely graced our shirt in every single respect.
