1. Why you were looking
forward to going to the ground (or not as the case
We had been doing quite well away recently and
Bramall Lane is somewhere I've always wanted to
2. How easy was your journey/finding the
We went down on the Friday and stayed in the hotel
next to the ground. I would recommend it for fans
making a long trip.
3. What you did before the game pub/chippy....
home fans friendly?
There is a chippy on Shoreham Street we used
before the game. I would recommend it. Very
welcoming for away fans.
4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first
impressions of away end then other sides of the
It is certainly a Premier League ground, there is
one old stand, the Kop which was the biggest.
There are however three very modern, new stands.
5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere,
stewards, pies, facilities etc..
Stewards-good, they were very welcoming and
friendly. Blades fans we met sitting above us, but
there were no problems. The atmosphere was
brilliant and over 20,000 fans were at this game.
Crowds we can only ever dream of. I enjoyed the
Blades fans singing the 'The Greasy Chip Butty'
song. They came out flying and too a 3-0 lead
before half time. We bagged a nice consolation
6. Getting away from ground after the game.
We got out of the ground easily and found our car
parked in the hotel car park. Was then an easy
drive home, arriving back at about 9pm, in good
time to see in the New Year.
7. Summary of overall thoughts:
Go to this wonderful ground. One day it will host
Premier League games, I'm sure of it.
