lol, although it was quite a while ago. My memory could be a little fuzzy! I suppose that large an amount of away supporters should really make more noise too! Could do with a better (or any) queuing system for turnstyles next time too...

last years atmosphere was shite
it was.......

and it was -
a) fucking freezing
and
b) a really shite pitch
and
c) early kick off
I clutch the wire fence until my fingers bleed,
A wound that will not heal, a heart that cannot feel.
Hoping that the horror will recede,
Hoping that tomorrow we'll all be freed.........JUSTICE.

Loads of guys in the wigan end last year. Loads got chucked out too. Avoid anywhere near the away end as this is where the most passionate supporters sit.

I'm on row V seats 1,2 and 3 with my mates. Think we will be going the Orwell before the game, looks the best to take over and easiest to get to from the station. Anyone else doing it?

In all fairness the atmosphere has been shite at most aways this season, a lot of which don't have any of the excuses above.

They only drink water and bottles of coke, the Everton boys are a joke...

Can't believe anyone would want to sit amongst oppo fans anywhere.  We don't tolerate it or like it at anfield, so why go around trying to get tickets in other fan's areas?! Its not a good experience anyway, better off staying in liverpool and finding a pub thats got far-eastern tv on, if you can't get a ticket amongst your fellow fans.

They wouldn't sell as many tickets otherwise.
