30 years ago tomorrow, one of the best moments from Roker Park



Tomorrow marks 30 years since The Rumble at Roker Park.

David Speedie tries to kneecap Gary Bennett, who responds with a chokeslam into the crowd. Cue a massive bundle, before Big Cyrille Regis cleans house.

Bring yer fucking dinner.

That was class.
I was in the Roker, and really hoped Benno was gonna punch the shite out him, when he had hold of him by the throat.
I was down at Coventry for the 2nd leg, and the least said about that game, the better.

Was in the Fulwell that night and you could see the Clock Stand paddock holding Speedie up so Benno could get at him.:lol:

Like you say mind- no one argued with Big Cyrille.

I was in the Clockstand paddock right by it when Speedie came over the edge. Wasn't one of those fans who pushed him back onto the pitch side though. He was lucky no one had sly dig Pompey style, becuase he would have deserved it to be fair. Clearly targeted Bennett's knee right in front of our eyes.

That wasn't me! I posted a tweet. I can't remember much apart from Benno shoving Speedie into the crowd!

Deserved a chokeslam, tried to kneecap Bennett in half.

Read on Wiki that Speedie is now a taxi driver. There ya gan.

Away game was a disaster 5-0 iirc.

I did a conservatory for the lad who scored 4 of the goals, he lived in Middlesbrough
