Out of interest has anyone on here ever been in the home ends for fixtures in the past?

Yes. It was a common thing back in the days before crowd segregation.

Very stupidly, Millwall in a league cup game, one summer's day in the mid 70's. I think we won with a penalty but it was very much hands in pockets all afternoon.

We played Derby in a game to decide who got into the play-off in 1992. Was at the Derby end with a one of their supporters and we lost 3-1. Did go up for our goal and was the only one in the stand who did. No problems though, apart from the result.

Used to do it quite a lot in the 70's as the view from the Paddock was better and the home supporters were usually friendly. Watford was great fun.

Twerton in the 90's where we won. Didn't say much that day but there was a fist pump in the coat when we scored. Thinking back to the Premier League season, both Arsenal and Tottenham (both seated) and West Ham in the League Cup when Chris Guthrie scored, I think.

The last thing on my mind was trouble and there never was any. Fans are fans, for the most part. Why do I remember all this shit but cant recall what I did yesterday.

Newport when we lost under Wellens. Kept my head down and all ok, had thought of an alibi if I was outed! Think Town fans ended up fighting each other anyway so safer where I was :-)

Man City in Prem when we got skanked with the disallowed header, sat in family stand at Maine Road with my mum as a teenager and no one seemed to care. Local youth asking for protection money for the car as we parked up. Mum told them to do one :-)

Arsenal (Clock End), Chelsea (Shed), Sheffield Wednesday (lower Leppings Lane) during Prem season. Couldnít help but celebrate the late equaliser at Hillsborough and inevitably incurred a few grumbles.

I was tempted to go on the Kop at Anfield but eventually decided to go in the away end.

Also Crewe when I went with a Crewe-supporting uni friend.

My Leeds supporting mate jumped all over me when Brian Deane scored his 3 goals because I stood there motionless. Think he was trying to make it look like I was celebrating the goals Cheesy. This was on the terrace in the Gelderd End.

Spurs and West Ham in Prem. Hereford (Div 4?) with a mate. Kept quiet in all cases, no issues. Could probably still do it; even with address, as dont live in or near Swindon.

Went to a Bristol City v Swindon game in the early 90ís in the home end simply because me and a mate were living in digs down there while at college. Town won 4-0 and had couldnít celebrate any of the goals.

Ha, ha. My ex FIL and I were in one of the old side stands, got a little bit ansty to say the least and he bottled it at 0-2 so we left about five mins or so before the end and we score two more on our way out that we missed. Still at least we never got smashed up which was a possibility it has to be said.

I have memories of Leeds fans in arkells getting set on by the locals when they couldn't keep quiet and got escorted out. it takes something for arkells fans to get angry!
