yeah was a good day. my cousin was down from manc for the weekend so i went with him instead of meeting my united boys. i had been ill all week so my dad was being a bit strict on me, initially he told me i couldn't go but i laughed him off so he decided to give us a lift instead of us getting the train and we got quite close then got out and walked. we came across the torch without really meaning to and got a few cans and had a nice sing song and met some mates and familiar faces from united games.
then we got off on the escort singing the torres song quite repeatedly. me and my mate were jumping up and down and i had a beer in my hand so some overzealous cop grabbed us and threw us against a wall, chucking my beer out of my hand. i had never been in this position before so when he said "you can think again if you think you're going to the game" i was panicking and blurted out, "i don't want to cause any trouble" and he walked off and left us to go on.

view in the ground was spectacular. i was pretty much on the halfway line, top tier, near the back and the view was spectacular. unlike old trafford, the ground is much more open so you don't feel as if you have a big roof coming down over you and the view is great.

overall, a great day for my first cup final!

jd, i don't know which one you are in the photo but either way i must have seen you at a fair few games recently as i just remember them as faces that i have seen at aways you know.
and i was in 526, row 36. sounds like you were quite near seeing as you mention halfway line and the spurs fans, plus i remember viva ken barlow (didn't realise it had many verses!)

Just found my ticket and I was 526 row 40 seat 374. So looks like I must have been really close to you lol.

You going to Fulham on Sat?

And Piazza he wasn't that much more drunk than any of us to be fair to him, I think he just caught the camera at the wrong time ;)

yeah jd, will come over say hi if i get a chance. managed to get fulham in the league in the ballot 2 years running and its a nice enough away. no aggro and we get a lot of tickets so its usually a bit softer than say west ham or stoke. the boozer i think you mean is 8 bells, just on the corner near putney bridge station. you can usually hear the reds as you come out the tube :D

TM, to be honest, i reckoned all along that the fan battle was a fix. i believe it ended 50-50 and i think it was always bound to really. the spurs fans make quite a nice noise when they all sing " oh when the spurs" really slowly and altogether. i was pleasantly surprised by our atmosphere but its really so difficult to actually tell how much noise each side makes that there isn't really any likelihood that it was a real thing imo.
