Rochdale 1-1 Norwich (aet)

Norwich win 4-3 on penalties :o Hard luck the Dale

Norwich keeper David Marshall saved two penalties to send his side past League Two side Rochdale 4-3 on spot-kicks and into the Carling Cup third round.

Glenn Murray handed the hosts a deserved lead when he strode through the defence to coolly slot home.

Norwich striker Dion Dublin glanced home the leveller but the Championship side could not force a winner and the game went to spot-kicks.

Rory Prendergast and Gary Jones then missed the penalties for the Dale.

It looks like the Superblues are on a roll already this season. The Premiership beckons once again for Portman Road, I can feel it... :D

Jim Magilton's Blue & White army !!!!! :D

I know, it doesn't have much of a ring to it... :o

(But, give the man a chance, he may surprise us.)

I wasn't taking the p***s jasreeve...quite the opposite, Jim Magilton was one of those players who did a solid job for many years, not a spectacular player but reliable & knew what you were going to get from him. I hope he does well.

You know I didn't like him as a player because him and Matt Holland were the centre midfield players when we got demoted. We were relegated by the odd point, and between them they didn't manage to pick up even one yellow card all season. I don't want violent players but a fully committed centre midfield partnership will pick up a couple of red cards and a host of yellows in a season. To me, they just didn't give enough and that's why we went down...

I agree that he seems like a decent chap and I'm willing to give him a chance.Good luck to him.

I just think that his play lacked commitment at times.

I have only ever been to Lincoln once in my life. Quite a few years ago when they played Rochdale. We walked into a pub after the game and there was Peter Adamson (Len Fairclough from Coronation St). He was p1ssed as a newt, scrounging drinks and really looked a broken man. Some might say deservedley but it was a vivid memory.

He probably just come from up the hill (HMP Lincoln)

One of the saddest sights I saw was when Lincoln were relegated from the football league (the 1st club I believe) & after the match some poor bloke tied his scarf at half mast outside his local pub

I vividly remember that day, as it was Torquay who sent Lincoln down, Paul Dobson scoring an injury time equaliser to make it 2-2. :o

The Great Escape

Those who thought the same thing couldn't happen three years in a row had a shock: on the last day of the 1986-7 season, United were next to bottom, one point above Burnley, and one point below Lincoln.

Torquay's squad in 1987

There'd be no re-election this time - whoever finished bottom would go down automatically under the league's new rules.

That final game - at home to Crewe in May 1987 - has entered Torquay folklore. A win would guarantee league safety, a draw or even a defeat might do.

Disastrously, United went 2-0 down in the first half. Jim McNichol pulled a goal back just after half-time, but despite all-out attack, United couldn't get the second goal they needed.

Then, with just a few minutes left, a police dog called Bryn - who with his handler was patrolling the touchline - bit McNichol on the leg.

It took four minutes to patch up the wound, and it was in the fourth minute of injury time that Gulls striker Paul Dobson turned and hit a low shot into the corner of the Crewe net. 2-2!

Burnley won their game, but luckily for United, Lincoln lost at Swansea, so the Gulls stayed up on goal difference, with Lincoln going down.

Cyril Knowles took over as manager and in his first season - 1987-8, led United to the play-off final, where they lost against Swansea.

Making his debut in this season was 16-year-old trainee Lee Sharpe - who went on to join Manchester United for £180,000.
