Sheffield United v Hartlepool United
Saturday December 31st 2011
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 go.
2. How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car
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
There is a chippy on Shoreham Street we used before
the game. I would recommend it. Very welcoming for
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 goal though.
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..
