City Ground - Nottingham
Sunday 15th August 2010
United, Championship League,
1. Why you were looking forward to going
to the ground (or not as the case may be):
It was the 2nd game of
the season and another opportunity to support the mighty whites. I'd never
been to Forest before and was looking forward to seeing
two of the bigger clubs play each other.
2. How easy was your
journey/finding the ground/car parking?
We stayed the previous
night in Sheffield and a 70 minute drive, left us with a ten minute walk
to the ground, the closest car park is right next to Notts County's
ground... The ground is large so can't be missed.
3. What you did
before the game pub/chippy.... home fans friendly?
We walked to the
ground and made our way to the visitors end and had a burger from a
van. The home fans before and after the game were friendly but during

of away end then other sides of the ground?

whole lower tier of the Bridgford end and the corner, and a sufficient
amount of leg room was found.
5. Comment on the game itself,
atmosphere, stewards, pies, toilets etc..
The game was a decent
one and it finished 1-1, a constant singing battle between both supporters
made a great atmosphere and this is really enforced by home and away fans
sharing parts of the same end, the toilets were grubby, but it didn't
really affect me. A net is placed just beneath the upper tier of forest
fans in order to stop missiles being thrown, but it wasn't needed. The
stewards were fine, they told us to sit down early on, but gave up very
6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
The Leeds fans were separated from the Forest fans for about 10
minutes or so but both sets of supporters walked over the bridge and no
7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
Definitely worth going.... as it is a great place and
