1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may be):

I had been here once before when we played them in an FA Cup replay but was looking forward to coming back on a Saturday and having a proper day of it

2. How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?

Took the tram from Manchester which was easy and cheap but as Man Utd were at home it was absolutely stuffed with people even though it was only 11am for a 3pm kick off however once past Old Trafford there was hardly anyone on it.  From the tram stop it was only 10 minutes or so to the ground but as for car parking it was incredibly easy with hardly any restrictions at all in place.

3. What you did before the game pub/chippy.... home fans friendly?

Before the game went into a really good pub in centre of town, the Market Tavern, with many good beers which is recommended.  Then on via an excellent chip shop opposite the ground to the King George nearby. Considering how near it was it was not that busy we left at 5 to 3 and were in the ground in time for kick off, it is that close.  Can't imagine doing that at Old Trafford somehow, I like this division!

4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the ground?

This is a real old fashioned football ground, a jumble of stands built at different times, toilets from the 1950s the sort of place that is becoming all too rare. It ought to be reserved this way forever.

5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, toilets etc..

Another really friendly place, steward near us was chatting away about referees and football in general.  A good, lively atmosphere made more so but a poor ref who sent one of our players off and then sent one of theirs off to balance it out we could only laugh at how poor he was!

6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

Very easy, back in Manchester before 6.

7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

Really good day on all fronts and would certainly recommend it to any visiting fans.
