The police dragged me out, my leg was ****ed, they arrested me while all the nonsense was happening. 20 minutes later they released me and told me to 'get on that ****ing bus and behave' I did What an absolute tool i was, and ruined a brand new pair of Gazelle trainers. My own fault.
    that coach came from my part of the woods before picking up in Cardiff

    It was full of Bridgends finest alcoholics

    God bless em

    Orient 88...first ever away game caught the train to London on my own, clueless 17 yrs old. Saw a few I knew at central so tagged along. Walking through train looking for seats and a whole carriage of old jacks or Newport just started belting us all so had to jump off moving train to escape. Got to London late, as we got off tube there must have been 80 West Ham fans just standing staring at us (game with Chelsea was called off or something weird). Only about 8 of us trying to be cool as coins rained down. Never ran so fast in my life to the ground as they came after us. They’d just had a kicking off the 300 city fans queuing to get in. Major pitch invasion by city fans at end of game, chased West Ham fans who had come to game out of ground, stabbings outside after match. Boy was I glad to get home that day. Right baptism of fire....

    Got to Chieveley services , place got ransacked

    Coach of Swansea City juniors pulls up , City nutter starts up a tarmac roller and tries to drive it into the bus , he's pulled off by a few level headed City fans and City fans block the steps to the bus

    The nutters turn their attention to the coppers when they turn up

    Bedlam

    Eventually the coaches leave , two drunk City fans , one from Porthcawl no longer with us , decide to have a wrestling bout on the back seat . Pop , out comes the entire rear window of the coach , we later find out it lands on the front of a car behind , causing serious damage and the occupants were lucky not to have been seriously injured

    Get to the ground , chaos

    Seriously over crowded away end

    Ian rodgerson scores if I remember

    We eventually lose

    City fans on pitch chasing David seaman

    More bother outside

    Freezing journey home with open back of coach

    Two weeks later supporters club announce that alcohol is to be banned on all coaches and membership tightened up

    I was happy just to get home to bed 🛌

    Reading this thread makes me so glad going to football matches is safer for all and the type of b*llox described has stopped. I never want to see it return.

    Yup, and back then, it would happen even if you weren't looking for it. The worst places were the shitty northern towns, rochdale, Stockport, Burnley etc, especially if we didn't have a sizeable away support, you would stand out, and the locals would bother you. Mansfield was always a nasty little shithole.

    That Q. P. R match I went up with Adar Glas supporters club and won a signed Q.P.R ball signed by all the players in a raffle draw.
    QPR were my 2nd team back then and I was buzzing

    Yeah it didn’t help matters that West Ham v Chelsea was called off for some reason, they came to the game with us then....and Chelsea fans were around Paddington if I recall rightly....
