    "The British government is free to make a decision about its participation in the World Cup," he said.

    But nobody has the right to insult the Russian people - who defeated Nazism and lost more than 25 million people - by comparing our country to Nazi Germany.

    That goes beyond common sense."

    Another open, barren terrace with almost no amenities and no atmosphere. Tiny club bar for home supporters only. Not very good really.

    We went to a pub a little walk away beforehand, wasn't really too worried about facilities there!

    I visited their ground, but have never seen them play.

    It was the match between Chester and us. We were giving Keith Bertschin a load of stick throughout the match. Needless to say, Chester won 1-0 with a last minute winner and we received our comeuppance!

    Likely the same pub we also went to, open fire, good beer etc. When we got turned away from Macc ground Ron Martin was there and got the home head steward to give us the directions etc. Ron did us "average Joe" fans a good turn that day and showed a bit of good spirit too.

    The game up there (04/05) when Alan McCormack scored two late goals to win us the game was great. Trying to get served in a local pub after that wasn't quite as easy...
