Whitechapel Owl

Man City at home 2002...

Recommended Posts

Hopefully those that remember this day can help me shed some light on this. 

It's the game we lost 6-2, when Bernabia played us off the park. 

 

I could have sworn that they had both tiers of the West stand, the corner and a strip of the North stand. I've always remembered it as being the biggest away support I've seen at Hillsborough, yet this article says they only had 5,000

If they did have both, tiers, the corner and a bit of the North it would have been more like 10k wouldn't it?

Also remember Wolves once had a section on the end of the North.

Obviously straight after the disaster in 89 a few clubs got a section of it only one I can remember though were Boro for the notable Whitton game when they also had a few in the triangle on the Kop.

Rangers is the biggest away support Iv seen and that was a friendly. The segregation is ridiculous now.

Was the Wolves game that one that was last match of the season, also around 2002? Might be what I'm thinking of.

Unofficially they did, officially they didn't.  1991 I think.

Yeah, you can see the corner looks quite empty and there's no fans at the end of the North at 2:20

 

 

 

Ashley Westwood :wacko:. Nightmare.

Pressman just doesn't look comfortable there does he?

Was last match yes. 

West Brom (managed by Megson) went up at their expense.

They also brought loads in Cup in mid 90s. (Maybe 95)

Nice one!

 

Glad to know I've not just imagined the whole thing. Ta.

 

I remember the Kop singing Megson songs that day.

About 12000 Geordies in 83/84 when we beat them 4 - 2.

 

Might have been more

Lepp was shut, that was about 4 weeks after the disaster and away fans were put in there
