    Ever had a leathering following city ?

    I have always managed to avoid getting my arse kicked but have come pretty close

    The old fourth and third divisions were the worst ...... Cardiff were coming to town and even the smallest of clubs would have their fair share of nutters

    Exeter , don't mention that place, Hereford , Lincoln , the list goes on

    I nearly had my head kicked in at Rochdale , Peterborough , Chester

    At home the nearest was Stockport , we were walking minding our own business when a load of them attacked us outside tescos by the canton cross

    Later on their coach was found by our booth it's and got wrecked

    Plymouth away was quite scary once or twice

    The games against the bigger sides , such as spurs away I felt safe because we had so many nutters , it was like they had emptied Cardiff prison for the day

    Re: Ever had a leathering following city ?

    Way back in 1971, I thinkIt was skinhead era, but I was sporting long hair.
    Evening game vs the wurzels .
    I lived in Risca at the time; easiest way back was train to Newport, then bus home.
    Went to Newport in a train full of carrot-crunchers! but no problems.
    Walking from Newport train station to bus station, I got jumped by 3 skinheads, while their girlfriends looked on, fought them off a bit but t hey got some kicks in.
    Not really sure if it was because of my hair or my city scarf (which they didn't get!)

    Forgot Scarborough away in the early nineties

    Was living in Bradford at the time so changed at Leeds station and caught the train to the game

    I was on an early service so thought I wouldn't have any hassle and it was only little Scarborough !

    Got off the train , it was only 12 o clock so thought I would grab a nice quiet pub lunch at the nearest pub to the station

    Walked in wearing my city shirt and quickly ran out back to the station .......followed by ten what I thought were Scarborough fans but was later told were Leeds who were there to help out their little Yorkshire cousins

    I was in the middle of a train of York fans once after going over to Rochdale to watch their game when we were both challenging for promotion in the early nineties , got talking to a few of em who were ok but some of the others found out I was a Cardiff fan and wanted to kick my head in , luckily two transport police came into our carriage and yet again my life was saved

    I had Wolves 'calling cards' left on me.

    Got a letter off Frankie Burrows and some City memorabilia including a photocopied first team autograph sheet and some city sweat bands sent to the hospital!. Also my brother got me the fiesta special from the magazine shop which had Mel from Mel and Kim in all her glory in it.

    Still wasn't worth it though as I sucked tomato soup through a straw for 6 weeks.

    That Wolves front 3 though!

    One of my mates got his arse slashed at Shrewsbury. It was after the Wrexham promotion game in 93 and they only stopped for a drink on the way home. He said they came out of nowhere with scaffolding poles and smashed their minibus up as well.

    Had a "SEEING TO" on Blackpool beach in the 60's, but I enjoyed every minute (thinking back, it was most probably seconds ) of it.

    she was a "sort"

    Shrewsbury have got some right nutters , it's safe to say they and Wrexham don't get on

    He was always the first to run, that's why he was an outcast. Most times he was the only one on his toes.

    December 1990 away to Burnley stands out. Previous week had lost to poxy Hayes at Griffin Park in an FA Cup surrender and had problems filling the ex-butcher's van. He was grudgingly allowed after swearing an oath (he was a former boy scout) to not leg it into the nearest laundrette (or wherever) at the first hint of aggro.

    He belched, farted, yawned, scratched and picked his nose for every mile of the long trip. More annoying was the running commentary he gave on passing female drivers. What he described doing to them would have made Hugh Hefner blush.

    On arrival at the grim northern dump he was full of bravado, inflamed as he was by the three cans of Carling he had necked en route.

    While we were acting incognito when heading for one of their hoolie pubs, he would shout "let's fecking 'ave it" and the like at startled and bemused shoppers. He also kept exclaiming: "fookin 'ell, they must have had a brilliant summer up here, mun." I asked him what he was on about. "Well, look at the tans on 'em, it must have been a scorcher 'cos they're still burnt to a crisp," he replied with wonderment. Someone else set him straight: "You cull dunt, they're all fecking P***'s, that's why!"

    True to form, he was absent at the furore that erupted inside the boozer. A shoelace that had to be tied 20 yards from its entrance was the lame excuse offered.

    I was at that game. City fans set the portaloo on fire before the game even started 😂
    Remember Ray Daniel picking the ball up near his own penalty area running the length of the pitch, beating about 7 of their players, rounding the keeper , and putting it wide!!! Would have been a worldly!.
    Also 2nd half, City fans after lots of effort, finally pushing the advertisement boards at the side of the pitch over, and seeing dozens of South west plod who had linked arms to try to stop it, landing on their arses 😂

    Re: Ever had a leathering following city ?

    None of this is anything to bragg about or needs to be glorified in any way. At times during the 70's and 80's I was ashamed to be a City fan. It wasn't enjoyable at all. Thank god we have moved on and are now winning awards for family and community initiatives instead.

    Yes, it was a memorable evening. An away win and lots of mindless violence. The Gloucester chairman later described many of the travelling support as "subhuman" when groaning about the costs that would be incurred repairing their stadium. Most of the City fans were housed along one side that was split in half by barriers. Georgie Wood, he of no hair fame, saved the day and many goal bound efforts.

    In the next round following a draw at Ninny an estimated 4,000 made the trip to Loftus Road for the replay. It was a routine loss on the pitch but their hoolie element didn't half get a drubbing pre and post match.

    Wasn't it a 2pm kickoff? Or am I thinking about a different game?

    Gloucester was totally unprepared , it was carnage

    As indeed was QPR , our bus from Bridgend lost its back window on the M4 after two of our idiots decided to have a wrestling match on the back seats , thumped against the window and out it pops into the M4

    This was pre match , not long after we had visited chievley services on the M4 which some of our fans ransacked

    A coach carrying the Swansea city youth team pulled in next to about 15 coach loads of our lot , they were saved by the police , they were just kids ff sake !!

    Total mayhem before during and after game including city fans invading the pitch and trying to attack David seaman

    Following this game mike Lambert from Cardiff city supporters club and the membership voted to ban all alcohol from supporters club coaches , it was a night of shame that Qpr match

    Barry v Reading? I was at that game as well. Think Barry took the lead before getting done 2-1. Few Reading fans got a beating that day. Hope our Piercy wasn’t one of them !!

    Re: Ever had a leathering following city ?

    Went with my Grampi to that QPR game as with all other away games we went to he would drive. Group of lads asked us where we were from on south Africa Road. 'Buzz off' would be his standard reply, which obviously meant from Cardiff. 'Never seen much trouble, the odd scrap by the Swansea Jack pub when I was a kid if memory serves. Some cheeky tw*t pushed my Grampi over. Nice of him to start on an old man and then keep running away from what I presume was Cardiff fans following on. Some Chelsea fans by Ninian Park Station who in fairness said he is an old man let him through. Pretty sure one of them dropped a block off the tunnel same night. It used to annoy him loads the 'mindless thugs' that he called them. I used to kind of like the fact that we had a following that would cause trouble although I don't know why and wouldn't be happy about it all now. I was a kid back then though.

    I remember them, think the lad was called Dave? I met them at an away game in Doncaster I think. I lived in Nottingham at the time, think there were only about 6 of us in the northern branch of Cardiff city supporters club at the time!

    You also had liquidised curry takeaway through a straw, was the most disgusting thing seeing the bits that were stuck in the metal brace holding your jaw together! Now if I'd only been there I would have had them
