1. Why you were
looking forward to going to the ground (or not
as the case may be):
I was looking forward to visiting Ewood Park as
I had never been before and it's always looked a
tidy ground from when I have seen it on
2. How easy was your journey/finding the
I used the official coach provided by Millwall
so it was very easy. Coach parked right outside
the away stand.
3. What you did before the game pub/chippy....
home fans friendly?
We didn't arrive until gone two, so we made our
way straight into the ground. Did not seem to be
many home supporters about.
4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first
impressions of away end then other sides of the
I was impressed with the ground. From turning up
outside the away stand it looked huge. Made my
way inside and took my seat. It's what I call a
proper football stadium with the stands fairly
close to the pitch. Three sides very neat, tidy
and match and should they build the fourth side
to match then the ground could be up there with
the very best.
5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere,
stewards, pies, facilities etc..
I really enjoyed the game. Very good performance
from my team recording a very impressive away
win. Blackburn is not a happy place at the
moment and the atmosphere from the home end was
unsurprisingly subdued but the travelling
support was very vocal and it made for a great
The facilities in the away end were very good as
are the catering facilities. Stewards were
helpful and friendly. Only complaint was they do
not let you outside at half time for a cigarette
so the toilets soon become the alternative place
to smoke which is not very pleasant.
6. Comment on getting away from the ground after
As I was on the coach it was very easy.
7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
Really enjoyed my trip to Blackburn. For once
the weather was better up north than it was down
south, a fantastic performance and a fine away
win by Millwall and the 65th ground ticked off
