i'd have hung my Leeds mates out to dry on the train.... 🤣

 

i had similar at the Lane back in the 90's...  i was on the John street on my own, had to join in all the banter and cheer for their goal and look pissed off when Hirsty equalised..... 

 

We were on the John Street for that game. Didn't keep quiet though, they were far from amused😁

Has to be the old den in 91 - concrete blocks thrown at the buses from the railway bridge - what a game 4-4 but when we went 4-3 up the barrage of coins, spitting and abuse at us in the triangle was unbelievable - never been happier for them to get a 4th and draw - otherwise I think it might have been fear of our lives getting out there 😱

Man Utd in aforementioned match....there was real hatred in their eyes

West Ham in the 80's

But for being afraid for my safety its nearly getting crushed to death coming out of Millmoor in the 70's . Crushes were a regular thing at away matches but that place was a death trap..

Cup game at Anfield in 80's. Kicked off in Stanley park. One lad got slashed quite bad. Scousers were all "tooled up" with craft knives. Nawty to say the least.

Maine Road, League Cup around '77.

We were in the stand which when we scored a late goal to put us in the lead was invaded by Manc thugs who started laying into anyone and everyone.

In true Wednesday style we conceded 2 very late goals and all calmed down.

Same for me chap... We could only get tickets in the stand down the side.. It was bad enough when we went one up but as you say we let two in right at the end..pretty horrific outside after the game finished tho... We couldn't find our bloody car either....

Was there that night... having said that, everyone of the wednesday fans gave as good as they got. All ages.

This... 200%. In fact t'was the only time i've ever been "scared" following Wednesday

I remember going with my old man I was seventeen. It’s the only time I have seen my old man show real concern at a game. It was scary!

St James Park late 80’s when we sent them down. Think it was a Hirsty wonder goal, green and white hooped shirts

 

Open terrace at the away end back then, loads of Geordies waiting in the park opposite the exit. Got a police escort some of the way then had to walk back to the car on our own. Locals gave chase, we did Starsky & Hutch entrance to car, wheelspinning away as they continued to run alongside the car. Pulse rate racing !

One of the lads we went with took a punch outside a nearby Pizza Hut after the game

 

Poor lad, he was a Celtic fan only came along for a day out 😩

The Man United semi-final was absolute carnage. It was almost like the police had decided to just leave them to it after the match as we all came out. The return leg at Hillsborough was extremely lively as well given all the stories that had done the rounds about Old Trafford.

Old Trafford at the "Dambusters" game.

Lost all the guys I was with and walked back to the car with my head down as angry Mancs were literally pulling people out of their cars
