First match I went to was at home to Chelsea , 83 I think , finished nil nil . Was on the north and after the match started a rain of coins and loads of other stuff came raining down on us . A load of Chelsea at the back so a load of coppers just ran up and dragged them down the steps while getting . . . .  err . . . . pats on the back on their way past all the rows and thrown into the away end . I just remember thinking this is insanity , now when's the next match :ghoulguy:

Weird how in those days you could go in the opposites team's end, cause chaos then get escorted by the police to the area where the rest of your fans were but not get arrested or even thrown out.

Scruffs were chucking darts at us that day.

 

Man Utd "dambusters" was chaos, think we played them a week or so later a mid week match......no bother.

 

1991 Chelsea semi coach got Windows put through

There was loads of trouble that night as Wednesday fans got their revenge.

Surprised that no one's mentioned dodgy games against the Porcine Scrubbers so far.:bullen:

The only worry is the sickening dread of possibly losing. 

Not their fans.

I thought we played them away pretty much straight after dambusters, agree, remember there being trouble at ours.

Remember that back in the '70s. Always bother up and down those side streets

Leeds sometime in the mid 90's.

Was in their big stand with a few Leeds mates.

Whispered under me breath 'go on Hirsty' when he went on a run.

Honestly, whispered it, inaudible.

 

You know when zombies smell blood on the telly, even though you've got a bandage on, it was a bit like that.

I've still got dints in the back of me head.

The Liverpool match was a cup tie.

the famous "We'll be back, We'll be back" match on our promotion season.

29th September 1984, it was a league match at Anfield which we won 0-2, witnessed a stanley kniving inside the ground on the concourse after the final whistle, bloke was on front page of The Star Monday morning, 60 (if memory serves) stitches in a slash wound in his back. I know it was this match as i've only ever been there once, Shelton and Varadi scored.

 

I went to a lot of matches around that time and most we're dodgy, got ambushed in a beer off near Ayresome park where four of us kept about 20 of them at bay in the shop doorway (including me smashing one of the fookers unconscious with a wooden stool, thought I'd killed him, but they had kicked the door in to get at us, so it was self defence, we never went looking for it ).

 

Also went to Chelsea to a night match (drew 1-1) and after being kept in for half hour after the match we were all escorted out and there were 100s of the fookers still waiting outside. We'd arrived late and parked at the nearby gasworks, and had to break the cordon to go back to my car. As me and my mate walked around the corner, my car was the only one left on the street and stood alongside it were 6 Chelsea fans who immediately started walking towards us. I'm 6'2" and was about 15st at the time, mate was about same, but when other two mates came around the corner (one 6'3" and about 16st and big Terry 6'8" and about 25st) they about turned and walked off.

 

Did go to West Ham as well (remember Hirst scoring) and the bus driver dropping us off outside the pub where all the WHU idiots used to go in, 50 blokes, no women or kids on coach and we contemplated going in (all the other West Ham fans were running away as we piled off the coach), but thought better of it. Found Alan Ween inside the ground, he told us his coachful were in there and if we'd gone in we'd have kicked them out of their own territory!

 

Because we were a bunch of big buggers who didn't wear colours we didn't get much crap to be honest there were always easier targets for the gangs of knobheads who were looking for a scrap at virtually every ground during the 80s

The Liverpool game in 1984 was where several Wednesday fans were slashed, it was after the league game the season after the League cup game, we beat them at Anfield that afternoon. I remember being in the crush at Grimsby on Boxing Day 1983 and always remember the kid in the programme seller kiosk's face when it almost toppled over, after the gates burst open, the gates burst open too at Oakwell in a crush outside the turnstiles before the night game in 1981, also at Millmoor one night match I remember a kid was stood upright next to me 'passed out' in the crush on that away end, then Leicester city away at Filbert Street 1981 my feet never touched the floor coming out, I nearly got split in half in a very delicate area as there was a barrier partitioning the exit stairwell, Chester City away 1979 someone set fire to some rubbish under the wooden terracing and the fire brigade turned up .... lot's of close calls back then considering incidents that happened a few years later.

I could have written this as I was at most of these games. Grimsby was particularly scary when the gates went down. I had the same experience at Filbert Street in 1982 when we won 2-0 after one of the very few great defensive performances I've seen by Wednesday with absolute carnage when we (Shelton IIRC) scored the second in the last minute.

The Luton game mentioned in the thread on TC got a bit hairy outside as they bricked our coaches.....then their [email protected] of a chairman banned away fans, as though their fans were angels

David Evans was the Luton Chairman at the time and he also brought in the plastic pitch to Kenilworth Rd.Thank god that's history now and so will Kenilworth Rd in a couple of years time.:tango:

Feyenoord v Hearts in the Europa League in Rotterdam. A truly scary experience. Their fans are absolutely mental

Ive been to a few of those as well as a kid.

 

But the smug intention to glorify violence by the OP triggerred my post.

 

The posters on here are not glorifying violence, they are mostly marvelling at their narrow escapes.
