Who the fuck wants to sit in the home end?!
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!
“All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies, and whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you, digger, listener, runner, prince with the swift warning. Be cunning and full of tricks and your people shall never be destroyed.”
I'm assuming Rotheram have already played all of their big derby matches?
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 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.
