After seeing the Burnley fans going absolutely radio rental after their winner yesterday, what are your best memories of losing it after you've seen your team score one of those memorable goals?

One of my highlights was at Man City (2007) with Lita scoring two late goals. It was absolute carnage and I ended up a few rows down being hugged by some random fella with broken seats aplenty!

2004 play-offs vs Hartlepool - 0-1 down in the 88th minute, 2-1 up in the 90th.

Was absolute carnage, Ashton Gate was bouncing that night.

I think I just screamed 'Oh My God' like a girl about 30 times when Joe Garner scored that goal against Rotherham.

The 3-1 win away at Blackpool I lost my shit and just flailed my arms around when we turned it round, clocking my mate with a right hook in the process.

Tom Clarke's late winner at home to the lashers was a blur as well, ended up falling into the row in front, followed by 5 minutes of just jumping around.

I just hugged every fucker in sight for each goal at Wembley in May.

Jota in the last minute at home to Fulham last season. Fantastic scenes around the ground where everybody lost it.

Every goal in the 4-1 win at Fulham last sesaon. 6000 Brentford fans going mental was brilliant.

Portsmouth at home a few seasons ago. 2-1 down with five minutes to go against the mouthiest, most horrible set of fans I've seen at Brentford and we turn it around with Clayton Donaldson getting a last minute winner to win 3-2. Great memories.

DJ last minute against Sunderland in the FA Cup a few years ago as well. I don't think I went to bed that night.

As a Town fan yet to witness much other than Championship mediocrity, Watford away last year will stick with me for a long time! Last minute winner right in front of the Town fans, during a short spell of disappointing results. That result not only gave us more confidence for the rest of the season, it was vital for us to even get into the play offs with Wolves finishing on the same points!

Watford had a freekick in our half, Town fans screaming get it out, within seconds the ball was in the Watford net :2thumb:

It is very hard to look past the final against Derby. I went mental and was hugging anyone and everyone.

In contrast, the time I wanted to go most mental but had to be silent was SWP winner against Chelsea at Chelsea. I was sat in a directors box, and I couldnt do much more than smile.

Derek Asamoah scoring in front of The Kop at Anfield to make it 1-1 last month. Unforgettable night.

I remember when Milwall came to Ashton Gate around 2000. The atmosphere was intense, there had been fighting all up Winterstoke Road and trouble inside the ground. I think Milwall took the lead and they started smashing up the away end. We got one back and then Lee Matthews came on to score a last minute winning goal on his debut from the spot.

I was about 12 at the time and I had been so emotionally caught up in the atmosphere that I completely lost it when we scored. Amazing feelings I still get goosebumps now.

Another one was against Rovers in the JPT couple'a years back, when Bryan scored the second, went absolutely mental, turned round to jump on my mate and seen him flying over 3 or 4 rows down :lol:

Without picking an obvious one, remember a last miniute winner against Norwich in our first season back at this level, some reason that sticks in the mind. Could go on all day, that season had plenty. Such a good feeling about the place , and came so close

Laird against United was pretty mental too.

Think my favourite ever was Ross Wallace's free kick away at Birmingham.

Aye, I was down the pub for that Birmingham game, don't think there was a drop left in anyone's pint glass after that, drenched.

Darren Carter's screamer at Leicester was pretty special too, only good thing the shit bastard ever did for us.

The 2001 playoff semi final second leg against Wigan in 2001. 1 down with 5 minutes to go and scored twice to win 2-1. Ended up huging randon strangers. Others were beating Oxford 4-3 in 2000. Drawing 2-2 at Chelsea in 2006 and coming back from 2 down against West Brom with 10 minutes left to win 3-2 at home in 2013.

Beating Wolves 4-2 in 1997; I was in a packed Southbank and it was absolute carnage.

Furlong's late winner in that play off semi against Oldham is up there with Zamora.

The 2-1 against Wolves in 98 at Elm Park was probably on a par with that. Archie Lovell scored both. The game against Wolves at Elm Park in 94 was good as well. If i remember rightly it was live on Itv and our first game after Mark McGhee left to manage Leicester. The atmosphere was great that day.

Arsenal away at highbury in the league cup 2003, we equalized with the last kick of the 2nd half in front of around 5000 millers fans packed in the clock end to send the game to extra time, i ended up nowhere near where i was sat before we scored, everyone went crazy but unfortunately we lost 9 8 on penalties in the end.

Yep you're correct, 1994 is a great shout. The return fixture at Molineux was tasty as well.

1983 after Peter Taylor left forest and came back to Derby. We were crap and really struggling but drew forest in the FA cup and beat them 2-0. Forest were doing well in the 1st division and we were struggling in the 2nd division and expected to get hammered.

Michael Collins 93rd minute winner at Elland Road in our centenary season.

Rhodes 97th minute 4-4 equiliser at Hillsborough comes close too where he scored all 4.

Adam Virgo's late header in the L1 play-off semi final vs Swindon in 04. More recently, Buckley's 97th minute winner vs Doncaster (first ever game at the Amex), and Ulloa's last minute winner to somehow nick us a play-off spot a couple of years back. All involved unhealthy levels of delirium, the like of which those who aren't fond of the sport tend not to understand.

The final penalty in the conference play off final. I couldn't watch and when everyone went mental I just burst into tears. I was consoled by a ten year old next to me " it's alright mate we've won" I replied " I know, I'm so c*** happy" looks of horror from the lads father and reassessing from my wife mixed with a touch of contempt.

I happened to be at that game as my dads an arsenal fan, seem to remember your goalkeeper sent off, and in the shootout it went through the whole team. Think it was byfield who got your equaliser and fabregas' debut that game

Yeah your bang on the mark about everything, Fabregas debut match as a 16 year old and it was Darren Byfield who headed in stoppage time for our goal, Mike Pollitt who was our keeper got sent off for handling the ball outside the box in extra time and the penalty shootout went past the whole team taking one each before Chris Swailes missing his penalty 2nd time around before Sylvan Wiltord slotted in the decisive penalty.

Dolman was physically shaking after Roberts' winner. Would've been pretty scary had I any idea what planet I was on

JET's goal against the Gas in the Eastend was something as well. One of those moments you completely blank out and turn round a minute later wondering how the hell you ended up 10 rows from where you were stood
