    I went from going to 99% of Forest games home and away to dropping down to a couple of away games a season because my eldest now goes.

    Unfortunately at 11 he is not tall enough to see and when he has gone weve seen enough shitty, cuntyish behaviour by fellow "fans" to make it not worth while.

    At one time that kind of behaviour would have been policed to a point where a bloke on his own with his kid wouldnt have had to step in and say something, unfortunately society aint like that anymore....

    Hate to say it but Derby fans are right, our fans are twats.

    Come to Germany to watch your Football Bazza.

    Within the stadia, things are very civilised.

I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    The problem with football in the UK is that it brings the worst out of the worst people.

    This season, having moved back to the East Midlands, and up for a change we opted to use our Season Card entitlement and got our tickets with the Forest fans behind the goal in the GM stand.
    Never again.
    When we sat among the Blue-noses there was the odd jibe when they realised we were Forest fans, but so long as we didn't incite them, we had a decent match-day experience there.
    This season we had a crap view (I hate the view from behind the goal home or away)and the Forest fans around us were dominated by drunken oafs.
    As for Birmingham - the suburbs we pass through were vile, but the city centre is pretty decent.
    And that about sums up Nottingham as well these days.

    We were driven by our Blue-nose friends.
    It seemed OK coming in from the north-east of Brum.
    When we used to drive up from Dorset, the traffic as we entered the city was horrendous.
    Also the streets, both on the n-e side and from the s-e side were horrible.
    Do Brummies know how to use bins and household refuse sites?
    And how do all of those fast-food outlets make any money?

    One other thing I found baffling among the Brum supporters I spoke with: to a man/woman they thought Jota was a waste of space and money.
    It must be that they are so conditioned to watching 6 ft 3in thugs hoof the ball and opponents that they can't recognise the talent and creativity that Jota has.
    It is a bit like some of the views from Forest fans about Carvalho!

    We sat in a scrapyard where we'd parked for best part of 40 minutes before we moved.

    Do you mean as you came in on the Aston Expressway? If so then yes, it is a dump but there are mitigating factors. The (I’m ashamed to say) Labour controlled city council have royally pissed off the bin men who are on strike leaving a lot of people with fortnightly collections at present.

    It really is a mess (both literally and figuratively).

    That was a home fan's car park.

    Yes - I thought that the bin man dispute had been settled a couple of weeks ago.

    Our players must have been in that same scrapyard - they didn't move much for 65 minutes.

    Yeah I’ve mentioned before on here that a visit to the Westfalenstadion is well worth the effort.

    But the atmosphere is similar at most German grounds, mostly due to the light-touch policing, and the Bier, of course.

    Good luck getting a ticket to FC Bayern, though, as they’ve again sold out their entire allocation - home and away- this season.

    Berlin is another good one; tickets to Hertha matches at the wonderful old Olympiastadion are always available and there’s lots to see in Berlin (the shopping is excellent also, if you’re bringing someone who isn’t a football fan - point them towards the Kurfürstendamm and let them at it!)

    I mustn't forget that the Germans are now our best friends. How times change.
