I've done that at Old Trafford. When Murphy scored our free kick winner. I was dead lucky, I did a bit of work on a PC belonging to an Israeli ex-footballer. he was a season ticket holder and couldn't go so I waived my fee and took his ticket.

 

I kept my mouth shut the whole time but when the goal went in there was a lad a few rows back from me who jumped up and shouted. There were thousands of them who turned round and gave him all sorts of abuse. 'Murdering scouse t***' 'Hillsborough'

 

It was fantastic to hear them slag off their team and manager then while they were losing.

I think I will pass. Thanks for helping clear it up in my mind.

 

 

I'll have it.

 

honestly, its not that bad. I knew I was capable of controlling myself. No-one really pays attention to anyone else at the match unless they either look weird or are making noise. If you keep it in your mind that you can't say anything then you'll be fine.

This is very dangerous at the best of times but they are mad as cut snakes just now because their team is so sheeite.

 

They are snides as well. They will be looking out for away fans and you run the risk of getting your head kicked in if you go to the bogs or whatever. Or they might get you outside. Or they might just attack you then get a steward to throw you out. They really are horrible cvnts.

 

I have done it in years gone by but never again.

To be fair, i was in their equivalent of the main stand (not sure what the stand is called) and its not nearly as bad as it would be in the Stretford end.

 

It was a bit more pleasant than being in the Gwladys St on derby day. That is a sickening place to be.

you were very very lucky. your experience is also coloured by the fact that we won.

if you'd have been there for the 4 nil defeat when riley sent sammi off...just think about that.

 

dont. do. it. ever.

you're right, i thought of that when I'd read anny rd's post. If they'd won and i'd not even stood up and clapped then one of them would have had a swing at me at the least.

 

Still, i'd love a ticket for that game...its tempting. Greatest fixture in club football in the world IMHO.

Only time in the UK I've been unfortunate enough to end up with a 'home' ticket at an away match was at Arsenal - and apart from being a bunch of cockney librarians, they were fine. I'd never be mental enough to be in the Leeds, United, West Ham, Chav or Bluenose ends though...madness.

 

I know. I must have only been about 14-15 at the time, and I just really didn't consider it like I would now. Oh I was with an adult, and in the end it was fine, but I do shudder when I think back on it now, and wouldn't do it again. I think probably be a youngster I'd have gotten away with more then, then I would do now.

I was in the seated end (cant remember the name of the stand) at Maine Road when we beat Man City 4-0 many moons ago - I was the only one doing muted celebrations when we scored - mind you a 19 year old lass going mental whenever John Barnes touched the ball wasnt going to get her head kicked in :unsure:

i was in the main stand one new year's day back in 1989 or some time like then when barnesy scored and then they came back and beat us 3-1. i had big mancs hugging me and saying things like "isnt this the best christmas present of the lot eh?"

 

if you win, its probably ok. you get the lovely satisfaction of them crying around you. if you lose, to them, and hear them all rejoicing around you, its a bit like a few hours after eating uncooked chicken which had been sitting in heatwave sun for a few hours
