Excuse me WB, not all of us legged it.

That's what I thought Reg, I was in the Shrivvy and just watched. They looked like they changed there minds when the town fans on the bank stood and stared. One fella at the front of the Shrivvy took a few on by himself  Cheesy

I think the Leicester thing was a bit half hearted. Quite a few got on the pitch and ran across to the Shrivvy. Looked a bit threatening at first but a few at the front of the Shrivvy got on the pitch and swung at them. A few more at the front of the Shrivvy had a bit of a scuffle and the Leicester fans just walked off. Not many Swindon ran away because you couldn't with the crowd - probably did us a favour actually. The stewards ran faster than the Leicester fans.

Yeah, a few stood their ground in the Shrivvy to trade with the invaders.
I stood on the Bank in those days and it was still possible to leave at the end via the side of the pitch.
Had to move a but sharpish when some of their lot moved towards us.
Remember one town fan picking up an advertising hoarding for self defence, just in case.

I think Leicester did the same at their next away game as well.
A far cry from today's sanitised atmosphere & cardboard clappers in the PL.
