In amongst all the doom and gloom (Idea kind of stolen from the Hull FC board) what is your favourite memory or memories of following this historic club.

Being 9 at the time i will forever remember (not very original but...) the great Martin Offiah try at Wembley 94. That was the start of my love affair with rugby league and from that moment on was hooked.

Similarly the Jason Robinson try the year after, i remember replaying the try over again, the one where he blew a kiss on his way to the line

Robinson features again with that superb powerful effort from dummy half at Knowsley Road around the same time

Farrell and Sculthorpe

The 2010 GF performance, Martin Gleeson in particular.

The Bradford play off second half.... oh my. (who was there? i can only imagine what that atmosphere was like)

1998 Challenge Cup final (not for the game but personal reasons)
Murrayfield 2002
Grand Final 2010
That Liam Farrell try v Saints
Good Friday 2004
Radlinski’s try v Bradford
Challenge Cup 2011

I could literally go on and on. That was a brilliant trip down memory lane

Without a shadow of doubt, he night of the Wigan v Manley World Club Challenge game in 1987.

Left home at 5pm and returned home at 1am slightly under the weather, but worth the bad head I had the next day

Great game, a fantastic over capacity crowd and a great night in the Riverside Club and Players Bar afterwards.

Even talked to Aussie bad boy Ron Gibbs who was sent off in the game.

Just one of the many great times supporters like myself had at Central Park!

When you initially think back, your brain goes to the finals etc but some of my fondest memories are from regular season games. Maybe it's the pressure of a final that can take away some of the enjoyment? The relief of not losing, is almost as great as the win itself.

Personally, I loved the win Vs Wire away in 2010. We hadn't won there in what seemed like ages and, it was nail biting. Sam's chip over to set up a try & HH holding onto possession after a monster hit from Morley will stay in the memory for a long while.

Also, what was the year when we went to Saints with a bunch of kids and turned them over? I think it was Luke Robinson that bossed it that day.

Was in Benidorm with a few other lads watching in one of the Yorkshire bars, refused to get up knowing all the "Wigan walk" abuse that would be heading our way, best decision ever :D

I think that finals attract more "hangers on" and you aren't always surrounded by people with the same passion as you are at regular season games. I second the vote for the win at the HJ - really felt we were back where we belonged after that game. Other highlights:
- Good Friday 2003
- Away win at Saints in the same season
- Neil Cowie drop goal at Bradford
- 31-30 at Bradford
- Play off win away at Catalans (largely due to the amount of bier consumed)

Remarkable how few highlights there are from recent seasons. Rose tinted glasses or just a sign of how we have played over the past 5 or so seasons?
