Great thread lads.
Never really went to that many away games until the 90's, but the one that stands out for me is this one.
Me and 5 mates went to Forest in the 90/91 season (I think), on a coach with a load of Ryhope lads. On the way down, the drink flowed, the dodgy cigarettes came out, and we had a great time. As we got near to Nottingham, the coppers were stopping all the coaches - by this time, you couldn't see from one end of the coach to the other for smoke. A copper gets on, sniffs, screws his face up and laughs "fuckin hell lads, you've had a good time on here"....and lets us go on.
The 6 of us though, had decided to go in bad taste (kipper ties, anoraks etc), but due to work not giving me the time off work till the last minute, it wasn't till I got down there that I found out my mate couldn't get me a ticket next to them in the seats...so there I was stood on my Jack Jones looking class in my brown anorak, pink big collared shirt, beige kipper tie, flares and elton john boots.
but I was that stoned/pissed, I couldn't give a fuck
We stopped off in Doncaster on the way back, and had a drink in a few of the bars. We walked into one and just stopped. It was full of Hells Angels. My mate sheepishly went to the bar, while we were trying to hide
In the ebnd, we had a great night with them, really good set of lads - pissed themselves over the bad taste gear (probably saved us)
