By hook or by crook so did I. At Swansea we were on the home terrace which was down the side. Everything was good till we scored then it was obvious who we were and all hell broke loose. Eventually got escorted round to the empty away end. There were loads at Bristol, Derby and Grimsby. Derby fans gave it the "Big Un" as for once they outnumbered us about 20 to 1. 

We started on home terrace.  We didn't make it to kick off.  Ended up in the away section via 3 sides of the ground.  It was the most interesting of the 4.

I remember losing a lot at old rubbish grounds, but what I remember mostly is  always being cold and wet.

From standing on uncovered terraces rain lashing down, the cold wind blowing and snow falling.

Oh happy days.

 

Always seem to remember everyone wearing donkey jackets.  ICO train walking along Blackpool front 70% seemed to be wearing them. The real Donkeys didn't seem to get the irony but that's donkeys for you.

 

Dunno if this is true all away games seem to be one big massive timey wimey memory

Memory banks not too good these days but weren't there about 100 of us eventually in the away end. I know we had to watch ourselves after the match.

That's how I remember it.  With the numbers on the away end growing as the game progressed.  We only just got back to the car in time.
