Re: Early Derby Day memories....
My first derby experience was the 1st 2-1 in the rain watching it at the beamback with me Dar. Weird experience with no teams there but the atmosphere was class, with bloke running on the pitch doing Klinsmanns on the plastic pitch cover up to the screen!! On the way back over its seemed like everyone had their shirts off singing and jumping all over!!
The home game was incredible. I'd never experienced noise like that, I could'nt even hear what me Mar & Dar were saying to me and I was stood next to them!! Was sat in the south stand to the right of the scum near the front of the stand. When they scored a mag put his arm up so a load of blokes behind went fucking mental telling the stewards to get him out or he'd get a kicking que the stewards doing jack shit. When they scored the second he did it again so about 6 blokes came pilling over the seats literally over peoples heads and kicked the living daylights out of the daft mag. The stewards just stood looking clueless and one of the lads shouted over "fucking warned ya's" then they calmly walked back to their seats and watched the rest of the match! When Super Kev got that equaliser I just remember ending up about 5 rows infront under some fat bloke!! The place went mental and a few years back I read a match review by a geordie who said along the lines of ive got to admit the atmosphere was frightening, hats off to the mackems!!
Cant wait for the 20th think this could be special!! FTM
