Go Torps! Yer flying. 10:31pm Wed 27 Aug 14

Great night - crap round 3 draw. (Shame cos if those Mancs had tried last night and beaten MK, we'd have had that elusive trip to the "Theatre of missing out on Champions League")

Score: 4
Victor Clayton 10:41pm Wed 27 Aug 14

Brilliant night. Though we looked a lot better when mcburnie came on.

Score: 10
Waydownsouth 10:49pm Wed 27 Aug 14

Awesome performances but Meredith and Knott really were class. McBurnie took the weight off Hanson when he came on. McLean lots of huff and puff but still looks off the pace.

Score: 5

MK Dons away is scant reward. We'll probably outnumber the home crowd.

Shame about the away draw but great to have beaten Leeds.
Scum fans and how true is that trying to start on innocent people in the interchange.
Can we all realise what a good manger in parky we have got.
We are lucky to have him. He does not get the appreciation he deserves sometimes.
Williams looks a good keeper and I would keep him in goal.
Don't know what deal we have on playing him but Williams deserves a start next league game.

Score: 16

Sorry I meant don't know what deal we have on the Sunderland kid if we have to play him every game!

What a night...... As much as I hate leeds united and especially the fans I do feel a little sorry for hockaday since he's going to loose his job over this, disappointed with that to55er that ran onto the pitch too from our end. Great way to represent our club but that isn't going to ruin my night. Just done the old enemy and I'm still bouncing and will be for the rest of the week

Great night, great atmosphere and to actually beat the scum, great history making effort. BCFC fans take a bow, 100 minutes of pure passion, thought the support after the bellend roaders took the lead was truly immense, digging deep, having heart are great attributes to have and both BCFC's team and supporters have them in spades!!!!!!!!!!

Score: 10

Was one of what must have been only a few hundred people left at the final whistle 28 years ago, and it's been a long time coming, which seemed like it was gonna be a lifetime, when they score completely out of the blue late on.

All their tactics seemed to consist of was the long ball to Smith, although I thought we dealt with it very poorly.

I don't know what was the most stupid; Murphy's challenge after his yellow, or the behaviour of their mindless majority, who spoil it for their genuine fans.

I actually thought Knott faded after a good 1st half, but what a brilliant strike it was. He looks a good signing; comfortable on the ball and always looking for it.

I think we need to move the ball quicker at times, but it was great to see us try and get the ball down and play, and this win should give them a lot of confidence.

Now you all loving Parky !!!!!! You bunch of dreamers. Last year you ALL wanted him discarded, this year he is a genius, When the next four game losing streak starts on the weekend you want Parky and McLean gone... lmfao..........

Before the game began, curiously, ACDC's " Highway to hell" could be heard playing over the public address system. At the end, it should have been the Eagles' "one Of these nights!! The fans and the team got our memorable win and performance here and in spades. This was back to the 'we made history nights' and with a huge crowd and the Kop in ear-splitting voice, it just felt as if a 'result' was on the cards.

The first half was cagey, with both teams testing one another out. The sending off, reducing Leeds to ten, didn't make as much of a difference to the approach of both teams at first but in the final 10 mins, it was City doing all the attacking.

The second half took things up a gear or two. City carried on the out and out attacks, whilst Leeds were depending on a quick counter offensive.

The Leeds goal came from just such a counter attack and was a massive body blow!City had had many chances but just couldn't put the all in the net. The Leeds players celebrated lengthily as if they'd won the game - certainly their fans thought so.

But then a quick one two from Knott and -who else- Big Jim Hansen, proved the coup de gras! Leeds were as stunned as Coventry had been. And City had got their longed for win!! What a night!

BrilLIANt singing on the Kop but one black mark - cut out the offensive Jimmy Savile chant!

Is it going to be 'another' cup run? Why not!!

If I've been 'thumb- downed' because of my point about the Jimmy Saville chant, I stick by my comment.

This subject is not a suitable one for even terrace 'banter' and is as bad in its way as Leeds mocking Man Utd's Munich Disaster, other clubs mocking Auschwitz re: Tottenham Hotspur'sJewish supporters. ie it leaves a nasty taste in the mouths of decent fans.

City have always been able to hold their heads up with regard to chanting/ singing but some seem desperate to bring nastiness/unpleasant
ness into it which is not helpful.

Eg it's sad that City fans sing what has always been A Leeds United chant ie "go get your father's gun and shoot..."

There are a number of REAL City anthems that are our own and none better than "Take Me Home". These have the advantage of getting MORE people to join in too!
