Scariest ever away day experience

Middlesbrough away about 88, we won at Middlesbrough and as we were in Croftys coach we decided to call for a drink on the way back in a place called Knottingley. We all piled into a boozer that unbeknown to us was heavily populated with coked up Leeds fans.

We decided to drink up quick but before we finished it kicked off big time. We got chased all over Knottingley and everybody ended up in different directions, with some even running to the cop shop. My mate ended up in someone's house hiding for cover and another lad had been caught and duly dealt with.

Not the most pleasant of evenings but at least we won that day and I've never been back to Knottingley since.

Knottingley is roughanytime !  Not a good choice lol

Millwall mid 70s, coach got bricked before game, and that much trouble after driver left 3 or 4 behind because coppers made him leave coach park.Funnilly enough I only went once.

Fulham Broadway on any given away game at Chelsea in the eighties………. Different times that those who weren’t there will never understand……… All about the football & the music………. Wednesday  lads were well known for our anti racist views & proud of the fantastic  black lads who were amongst our numbers, some of whom were roadies for The Clash.

Chelsea at the time were pure racist scum & always gave us the warmest of welcomes & to our eternal credit we more than held our own!

Still didn’t make that walk up those steps at Fulham Broadway station any less terrifying.

It was very dicey back in the day but I thought our lot and Chelsea were quite matey.

That came much later in the late 90’s & early 2000’s mate!

Derby  88-89  season   no trouble with Derby fans just the coppers on horseback  lashing out  for  no reason

There had been loads of trouble before the match with the Derby fans. Then it looked like kicking off after and the coppers charged with the horses and trampled a young kid.

Fair enough. Seem to recall one of there’s getting lobbed through the pizza shop window on Hillsborough Corner. Probably late 90’s.

It was on the crossroads at the end of the road from the away end. Made front page of the Star.

Port Vale away under Turner. Got thrashed 3-0, played absolutely dreadful.

 

Getting back to Stoke station was a nightmare, even worse was the ambush by Stoke fans.

Millwall away league cup night match around 1979. Think it was 3-3. 

We got run across the pitch into the main stand before the game.

After the match plod kept us in the ground for around 30/40 mins. On returning to our coaches most windows had been put through.

No escort whatsoever, coming back up Old Kent Road cockneys had been lying in wait and attacked coaches again. I can remember diving on the floor as house bricks came through the left hand side of the coach and straight out the right side due to the fact we were already windowless. Driver also seemed to think the windscreen had been cracked by an air rifle.

It was absoluteky freezing all the way back up M1. Everyone had a story to tell when we all gathered together at Watford Gap for a warm.

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 😱

 

 

 

I'm on the fence for the fourth. Had a Millwall fan come up to the fence and flashed a massive knife at that match. 

 

Man U in 94 was bedlam and

Derby when the Police charged on horses
