    What when we gave some shite team who brought 1000 fans all seated towards the back of the stand, 4 and a half thousand seats.... then when they invariably beat us it looked like we were beat by a bunch of chumps in front of nobody on TV.

    No, when we beat the Sheep with their 4,000 plus fans.

    I prefer doing it in front of 30000 of them who turned up expecting a rout....

    I was in the home end at Leeds when we beat them 7-3. That was a tough one.

    The recent Ipswich game the local publican is a Forest fan. He got comp tickets from Greene King and we sat amongst the local Ipswich supporters in padded seats with a lovely view etc. When we scored after a few seconds, we jumped up in excitement and were promptly turfed out to sit/stand in amongst the Forest supporters. Much better experience. Standing up singing and generally enjoying the game in good company.

    Of course, it helped that we won!

    Even if the absolutely, nigh on mathmatically impossible, worst did happen under Pearce and we were relegated, gates would still be better now IMO.

    I'm assuming Rotheram have already played all of their big derby matches?

    I was in with the home fans at Hillsborough when we had the 7-1 win.
    After the third goal the Wednesdayites were up cheering every Forest touch of the ball, and they invited me along to their boozer at the end of the game and a fine time was enjoyed by us all.
    I have only ever been a bot concerned once, and that was at St Andrews when we couldn't get seats in the main stand and had to sit with the knuckle-dragging element of their fans.

    We don't choose the "home end" as such.
    We like to sit well up in the Main Stand level with the half-way line.
    You tend to get less antsy supporters of maturer years and families there.
    It can make for an entertaining afternoon, specially as most teams in the Championship are not much better, or much worse than us.
    We have had some right good laughs.
