Did the fans make it themselves or was it supplied by the team?

1st rule of ultras groups is never, ever to accept "gifts" from clubs.

what exactly is a "gift" from the club, because I swear in some countries they get given free tickets so they don't cause "trouble"....

I dunno sometimes it looks they spend more time caring about their choreography and banners than the actual match, and for me nothing beats spontaneous fan support.

I love it at the start of the match though, and when a goal is scored!

yes, it was ebcause of their 100th anniversairy. and afaik, it was not a gift of the club, they made it themselves.

And something that became really rare nowadays: The home team's fans burn a flare.

Football in England is dead. Middle class families don't create any kind of atmosphere and they wait to be entertained. It is not the game of the working classes anymore.

I'm just glad I was around in the 70s and 80s when football was football, not this horrible sanitised version that SKY money has created.

EDIT: This is what it used to be like in English stadiums and this particular night against Barcelona was one of the best ever. I was in the United Road paddock that night.

Same over here in Holland. Commerce and "beautiful" stadiums have came there for instead.
My first games I visited on my own were early 80s. I have so many sweet memories of that time.

Oh look, another "what's your favourite" thread. It would be ok if it hadn't turned into another soccer stadium based thread.....like there aren't enough around here as it is.

I totally agree although some people around here seem to think that if it isn't a stadium where soccer, sorry, football, is played on a regular basis then it really isn't a stadium worthy of these pages.

Now I've got that off my chest, my favourite stand would have to be the B. K. Faeshe Stand at Richmond Oval (City Mazda Stadium) here in Adelaide. Sorry but I don't have a picture of it.

err instead of moaning why don't you post.

If people think football stands are the best that's their prerogative, it's up to people who don't to present their evidence. Not have a hissy fit about people liking something that they don't.

Bitching doesn't require any actual effort, it's the way lazy people make themselves feel like they're contributing. Both in the cyber world, and actual world. Everyone knows at least one of them.

A few people I have met would say the Dawg Pound at Cleveland Browns Stadium is the best, just to put a non-soccer nomination in the mixer.

Plus, from what I gather, it's a 'stand' aswell, and not a curve or section of a stadium like so many people insist on posting???
