    Mine too I think. First league away was Fulham 1-1. City scored in18 seconds, down to ten in about 20 minutes.

    Walsall, 2003. Alexander saved a penalty. Gareth Whalley scored a last gasp equaliser.

    Went with the Rams. Never went again.

    Yes it was Peterborough, they went 1-0 up after about two minutes as well. Don’t think Eastoe got a hat trick the day before though. What I do remember is Frank Burrows scoring a header from a corner or free kick for Swindon though and that Albert Larmour, who’d been very good before then, had a bit of a nightmare.

    Oxford United v Reading May 83. The day of the protest against Maxwell’s Thames Valley Royals merger. Kerry Dixon scored for us and we won 2-1 but still got relegated to division four with 53 points.

    Two City fans living on the island at the same time. Drop me a pm. I left in ‘87. My wife & a couple of my sons are Manx.

    Bristol Rovers at Eastville, in the old Second Division. I can't remember the date or score. It was probably around 1975/76.

    Re: Your First Away Game

    Orient 1988, caught the train for some reason, didn’t really know anyone either just tagged along. Got jumped on the train by Chelsea fans from west wales, pitch invasions, stabbings, just carnage….what was I thinking I’ll never know.

    I was stood on the terrace made up of old railway sleepers - nowadays it seems completely bonkers that was acceptable.
    My first league away was our next game at Swindon where we were stuffed 3-0 and tormented throughout by a rampant Rod Thomas!

    Oxford United away in December 1970. We lost 1-0 and Ron Atkinson and his brother played for the opposition.

    Yes my first away game as well. Great game and atmosphere. Was also fascinated by the fact that the river Thames ran right along side the ground.

    Re: Your First Away Game

    Can’t remember my first away, but certainly remember taking my eldest son to his first ….. Fulham !
    As we were living in London, the perfect games thinks I …he was about 8 years old, and I even took some of my wife’s overseas relatives along.
    So …… Pitch invasion, horses on the pitch, Neil Kinnock, “Diddy” David Hamilton, etc etc etc
    … and we get home about 2 hours later than planned.
    As we walk thru the door, I’m confronted by the wife who promptly says “you’re never taking him again … you can’t be trusted” …… as if it was all down to me !

    Re: Your First Away Game

    Only ever been to four away games and I think it was Palace twice and Fulham twice. Preferred Fulham out of the two.

    Hoping to live long enough so I can travel the country every week once my kids are old enough.

    Honestly, that's all I want to do later in life.

    It really makes me feel my age when I think that back in 1968 the side of the ground that runs by the river was an open terrace and I remember in particular they had flags of different countries along the length of the pitch. Since then they built a “new” stand, demolished it, and built another one
