If you can't get an away ticket


Recommended Posts

A few seasons ago when I didn't have enough points to get a ticket for Forest, I registered on their site and got tickets.  

Did the same for Derby, Villa, Burton and Brentford and never had any issues sat with the home fans. Yes it was hard not cheering for Wednesday but at least I got to see the game. I would chat with their fans and say I am a  groundhopper, take a few photos of the ground, ask about their team and watch the game as a neutral fan.

AFC Wimbledon tickets are on sale now and it's easy to register and get tickets. The likes of Cheltenham and Accrington where the away ticket allocation is small and your points aren't enough to get a ticket in the Wednesday end, why not register on their sites too. At Morecambe saw some Wednesday fans who had bought a ticket in their stand which included food, so they could get to see the game. Wimbledon are also doing a similiar deal if anyone's interested, £62. Remember in the 70s watching Wednesday at Plough Lane,  we played in a white away kit, see you at Wimbledon.

Done it a few times.

 

Boring as owt!

 

Sat there on your hands.

 

Politely standing up when the home team inevitably scores.

 

Spend your money at your local non league club and get the scores through on your phone instead.

I've done away end at Fulham and Charlton, and may have to resort to it for Wimbledon. Probably wouldn't do it for Milwall.

So you'd go in the Millwall end there would you?

Yes did Fulham years ago when they sold tickets in the section next to away fans.  Being to Millwall in the 70s and many visits since. Our last visit to Millwall I met up in Bermondsey with a Millwall fan and we shared memories and talked about their fans and the reputation Millwall had. Maybe because we were both older now but he said it's a minority of the young fans that want to uphold the reputation of Millwall.With the exception of the stand which they go in and spend all the match gording the away fans the majority of Millwalll supporters are normal supporters. The days of having every coach windows smashed up when leaving the Old Den have thankfully gone.

 Fair point, and I do know some fairly civilised Meewaw fans.

 

Fulham have an actual "neutral" section, or used to.

Their last visit to Hillsborough I was on the tram back with some of the  Millwall fans and they were sound. A few seasons ago on our way through Birmingham New Street, Millwall fans were out to cause trouble but they were kids and about 15 of them in a police escort.

Never had an issue sitting in the home end, done it plenty of times 

As long as you don't shout your mouth off, slag their team off or jump up if we score, it shouldn't be an issue. I wouldn't have a problem if an away fan was sat next to me and told me that they couldn't get a ticket for their end.

I don’t do the first 2 things anyway. As for the jumping up when we score, for some reason the urge to do it is completely taken out of me automatically when I enter the home stand. I know my boundaries lol 

 

And I think it is becoming more generally accepted for football fans to sit amongst each other these days. There seems to be less hostility amongst rival fans (obviously taking out the derbies)

I've lived away from sheffield about 25 years now, I've sat in the home end of a lot of the clubs round London, been fine every time. Helps if you have a mate who's local.

Even sat in the stand at the lane next to the comfy seats where the subs sit wearing a Wednesday shirt. Loads of banter, but safe as houses.
