Went to a Bristol City v Swindon game in the early 90’s 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 couldn’t celebrate any of the goals.

I was exactly the same at that game. The only pleasure was nodding in agreement when they said how shit they were.

Orient away the season before last. I find it interesting listening to the other fans grumbles.

Saw an Oxford fan get punched in the arkells when he piped up.

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!
Remember it happening in the County Ground Hotel as well that day.

Enjoyed reading all your responses, sounds like it’s a lot harder to do these days with having to give addresses etc.


It wasn't easy c.20 years back, the ridiculous reason why we ended up in the home end at Bloomfield Road was because the STFC ticket office would not sell tickets to someone with a Lancashire address!

Sat in away ends on many occasions, Wolves (league cup semi), Leeds, Southampton, Sheff Wed, Reading and Millwall back in the 70s.
Thrown out at Millwall with my mate for our own protection, did take a few smacks.
Got back in with 30 minutes to go, we were losing I think Posse (not sure that is how it is spelt) got a hat-trick.

Oxford a few times, Wolves could have got nasty and recently Wimbledon when noticed a fair few other Swindon fans were near. QPR another.

Wouldn’t have any problem now as most issues are avoidable.

were they print at home?

I hope those that chose to do this used their Northampton address if so

No idea, I saw this posted elsewhere & so went to check & it does confirm that on-line sales have been suspended.

We've already got ours, but did wonder what they would make of a Peterborough address Smiley

Any idea of how to get hold of home tickets now then? Guess you’ll have to turn up to the ticket office in person?

You can go to the ticket office, or call the phone line.
I’m assuming if you call them a Swindon address might be a bit of a no no
