Not necessarily the overall support in general, just the attitude of some people i had to face last night. I thought the West Stand was were the ignorant, annoyingly irritating little sh!ts sat, but i was wrong.

Sitting in my usual seat, when the final whistle went i got up and went to shuffle along the row and leave, and half way through shuffling down the row i stop to applaud the players off the pitch. Quite obviously, i'm not allowed to do this as im moving and find myself being elbowed in the chest by some middle aged woman. Now, i'm not a UN Peace keeper or an expert of etiquette, but Excuse me would've been sufficient in my view. So i ask her what her problem is, and why she didn't just say excuse me (adding a few harsher words maybe, as this really did irritate me) only for her dad, who looked in his late 50's to attempt to push me down the stairs into 2 women and a group of kids.

I stumbled and thankfully didn't fall into them, and all he could say was "move along sonny". Patronising p%&*k. Not a thought for what could've happened, bearing in mind how packed the East Stand was and how many kids were behind. With fans like this, is it any wonder daytrippers aren't regular visitors?
