1. Why you were looking forward
to going to the ground (or not as the case may
5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
The game itself was pretty one-sided with Swansea being 3-0 winners. The atmosphere was quite quiet (apart from the Swansea fans). Being in the neutral end there were fans of both sides as well as a lot of neutrals, so there wasn’t very much singing or clapping. The home fans in the other stands were very quiet for most of the game.
The toilets were different to most toilet facilities in stadiums – the toilets were individual rooms, each with a sink and hand dryer, rather than cubicles in a toilet block. It was almost laid out like stables.
I’d been told the food wasn’t that great so I didn’t buy anything except a bag of maltesers – I thought they were expensive at £3.50 a bag but we needed something for half time! I wouldn’t recommend taking bottle of drink (water, juice, etc) into the stadium as the bottle tops are confiscated by the stewards on the way in.
6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
Quite a lot of people left the ground early so there wasn’t a mad rush to get out. We had something to eat in the High Street and let the crowds disperse before getting back on the train. It was just as easy to get home as it was to get to the stadium.
7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
It was a great day out, I’d recommend it for anyone, no matter who you support. It’s a lovely stadium and surrounding area and I’d love to go back, although next time I’d like to be there with Saints! .
