Funniest things seen at a stags game

Postby DazMondo » Mon Mar 23, 2020 4:12 pm

[bbc-radio][/bbc-radio]Back in the early 80s, a Monday night game against Bradford, whom we seemed to draw regularly at that time.
I was in the North stand. A bit of a kerfuffle was occurring to my right between a small group of skinheads and police officers.
This resulted in a skinhead being arrested and led away.
Only then did we see why.
As he was being led around the pitch we could see he was adorned in a standard green pilot jacket and doc marten boots. He also was wearing a pair of multi coloured speedo type swimming trunks.
Apparently, offensive clothing :lol: :lol:
Why do the two football teams I support always let me down.

Cambridge away, the 2 - 1 win with 9 men. A coppers helmet ended up in the away end. Very funny!

Not funny but rewarding. Stags v Middlesborough in the cup. Big Bill Curry knocked goalie and ball into the net old Quarry lane terrace. Found a wallet on the floor, shouted to a policeman who was walking round the pitch. He wouldnt take it off me but dragged me over the wall. I was in my late teens, 6'+.He took me down the tunnel in the old West stand. Took my address and the wallet, i then had to walk up the tunnel just before the players came out, weird feeling. Clambered back over the wall. Enjoyed the game. Two weeks later received a letter with a fiver in it thanking me for my honesty and a invite to visit the owner of the wallet if ever i went up to Middlesborough. Really enjoyed that sentiment, one football fan to another. Cant remember the year but i think we won.

I remember that game. They had beaten us 4-5 in the league earlier in the season and thought they were going to do it again.

My other memory from the game was some poor sod getting his head split wide open. When the stags scored, a member of the crowd threw his shopping bag in the air. His flask came out and landed on the poor chaps head in the lower West Stand. There was blood everywhere and it's funny what makes a game stand out in your memory.
Who are you calling pedantic? I resemble that remark!

Same game and I seem to recall just before kuckoff and Middleboro fan came out north stand weaved drunkenly to centre circle tried to kick ball and missed. Dressed like Andy Cap with scarf round neck and fag wedged in mouth.
Those were the days when police never even noticed him get on the pitch as they where engrossed in spotting hooligans in stand

My nephew (who is a big unit) getting wedged between the seats at Rushden during a goal celebration and the geezer in the row behind dropping moulten hot pie filling on his neck.

Oh how we laughed as the gravy boiled away on his neck while his arms were trapped. It's always funny when it's someone else getting hurt. Just as nothing prompt more laughter from a group of blokes than one of their mates getting whacked in the raspberrys.

I can remember that. Barry caught the ball and dutifully handed it to the ref, who then gave a pen.

Funniest chant I can remember apart from who's the fat bird in the pink at Huddersfield , Towards the end of Cox's reign We took a large following to Shrewsbury and there was a lot of banter between fans . They didn't take kindly to us chanting Liam Lawrence is a stag and when they scored they gave it the who are you chant .Stags faithful replied with we lose every week,we lose every week , your nothing special we lose every week.

Just about summed football up for me .

Stags against Bury late 1970's, early 1980's. Players removed from field during violent thunderstorm. While we all waited for players to return, some Stags lads came running out of the tunnel and headed towards the North Stand goal. They then proceeded to simulate a game of football with an imaginary ball. One lad slid in sending another into orbit. The pretend ref then pointed to the penalty spot. The whole ground were on tenterhooks as the striker sent an imaginary football into the North Stand net past the bemused goal keeper. He then celebrated with a knee slide towards the fans.

This was without doubt the funniest episode I have seen at a Stags match. Back in the day there were no stewards to stop the fun. When Stags and Bury returned the late Neville Hamilton scored the winner from a header into North Stand net. Great memories of an unforgettable game.

Probably shouldn’t have found it funny but Colin Foster knocking a player clean out with a storter of a punch. Might have been Pompey.

York away about 20 years ago. Someone from away terrace had thrown a half empty bottle of coke onto the pitch. Ball drops to Sisson, he shoots and makes contact with ball and bottle at same time. Keeper dives for the bottle as ball goes into opposite corner of the goal.

Hartlepool away mid 80’s (shared away end with separating fence) heavy banter all through the first half.

Pools fans start fighting with cops at half time, 1 lad gets marched across pitch with his arm up his back.

His mate runs to the centre circle and “Kung foo’s” the cop in an attempt to perform a heroic rescue. It all ended with several cops fighting on the pitch and Greavsie coming out of the changing rooms to tell US to calm down :lol:

Cruel, but funny at the time.

Mr Toupee man, (seller of the football program around the North Stand) in the the 70's having his hairpiece removed and thrown around the crowd.

No hairpieces were injured during the melee

I remember in the early 80's 4 of us going on the public bus to Doncaster. Having just about survived the hostile atmosphere on the walk to the ground with a bunch of Donny lads wanting to have a go we got near the ground and saw the welcoming site of the psycho express trundling towards us, complete with 3 lads stood on the roof doing the surfboard as it turned into the car park. Donny lads dispersed quick time they must have thought they were nutters. Can't remember the score but I think we drew

I never found anything funny about Sean's mates encouraging him to get paraletic drunk & then treating the lad as a joke. He's got a heart the size of a whale that lad he deserves a lot more respect.

I can think of at least two occassions where he could have ended up in serious (as in life threatening) situations if other folk hadn't have looked after him.
