1. Why you were looking
forward to going to the ground (or not as the case
I had never been to Liverpool before so I
was looking forward to visiting a new stadium.
Other than that it was just another away game to
2. How easy was your journey/finding the
It's quite confusing once you get off at Liverpool
Central. We tried looking for the bus service but
couldn't be bothered in the end and just got a
taxi to the ground which cost £8 for two people.
It dropped us off outside the Arkles pub and we
stayed there for about 20 minutes before walking
to the ground.
3. What you did before the game pub/chippy....
home fans friendly?
We got into the ground with around half an hour to
go and the concourse was already filling up and
the atmosphere was great, but it was impossible to
get food because everyone was standing in the way.
4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first
impressions of away end then other sides of the
We had separate tickets but decided to try and
stand together with some people we know, that came
around 10 minutes before kick off. It was a bit
cramped but the stewards were fine with it, unlike
at other grounds. It's a fairly big stadium in
real life, considering it only holds 45,000. The
Kop looked brilliant and it stands out massively,
even though it's the same height as the other
stands. The stand to our right looked pretty old
and had poles supporting the roof. I obviously
didn't see much of the away end with me being in
it, but I can confirm that having been to see what
the view was like from the back row, it is
atrocious. I don't know how anyone could stand
there all game without moving.
5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere,
stewards, pies, facilities etc..
We were in good voice up until the 3rd goal went
in. After that, no one seemed to be up for
singing. It was annoying seeing people walk out
after only 70 odd minutes. People actually decided
to support the team and it was non stop singing
until full time. As I said before, the stewards
were fine with everything and there was no
problems at all.
6. Comment on getting away from the ground after
As soon as the game finished we walked out of the
ground and waited for a good 15 minutes before
getting a taxi back to the station. We parted with
the others and got the train back to Birmingham,
arriving home in good time. It was a pretty good
day out considering the result. Bring on March!
