In my personal opinion I prefer away games to the home ones, these are the reasons why. - At home, it feels familiar and its conveniant for me to get there, the stadium being a five minute walk from my Ancoats home, and my section of the ground (Man City, North Stand corner next to the old Kippax AA block) is one of the louder parts of the ground, along with the South Stand corners. However, we only really up the volume for the big games which does my head in. - At home I am surrounded by kids and numpties who obviously wouldn't have followed football in the 80's. Its a mix of old lads, passionate away goers and families. I'd prefer to be in the South Stand which is all lads but I failed in getting a transfer last season. Thus the football experience is diluted for me when I join in with a chant. I'm usually the first one to start joining in in my block, and then others will join in. But not that many. - Beer prices at home are a RIP OFF. - I want to stand all game like they do in the South Stand, but I can't due to people moaning. Generally the passion aint there, unless its a big team. Now compare this to away games. - Going down the motorway is great. Everyone sizes you up in thier cars, going... OMFG... FOOTBALL HOOLIGANS. We take beer onto the coaches and from 9am to however long it takes to get to Arsenal, Everton or Birmingham away we're usually p*ssed, then when we get near the ground we start chanting 'Oh city we love you' and if we see a portly gentleman we jab our fingers at him and chant... 'Have you ever seen a salad, 'Av you fcuk'. Then the escort to the ground is great. Like at wolves away last season, about 1000 City fans were grouped in an escort and we crossed the road and saw a 14 year old kid on the bus wearing a Man United shirt. He literally looked like he would wet his pants as everyone chanted 'Scum scum scum' at him. - The atmosphere at away games is amazing. For example, Crystal Palace away this season, we didnt shut up all first half and the loudest chant of the afternoon was 'Walking in a Keegan wonderland'. When we score we dont do what we do at home and just jump, and clap your hands, we go barmy. A goal scored away from home is like sex to be honest, and you have to watch your possessions as people crash into you, arms flail everywhere and the increased chanting that everyone joins in with.
