Thanks to Stephen and his Mate I was able to take my 11 year old Daughter to her first game. Not the most exciting action wise but for my girl it was electric.

As we walked down to the ground I said there will be two things she will always remember. The site of the pitch and ground as she walks up the stairs and out onto the terraces and the other was a feeling she would get when the crowd roars and everyone stands up in anticipation.

She agreed with me about the first one but the second one she asked what it felt like. I said i could not describe it. Half way through the game she looked at me squeezed her fists into her stomach and said "Dad, Dad, I've got it"

What a moment. It took me back to when I was eleven and went to OT with my mates. It was great to be able to wake up on a saturday morning (no such things as Sunday or Monday matches) and think, I fancy going to watch the reds today. Getting there early and getting the chance to sit at the fence with your legs hanging through. I started off in the Stretford End and usually managed to climb over into the South Stand at some point.

As I grew up I moved to the United Road and Scoreboard Paddock. Bring back the standing areas and I know this will sound sexist but the worst thing to happen to english football was putting in Womens toilets. It was the only place a bloke could get away from women and act like cavemen again.

I am not sure if that is what is wrong with many of the youth today. I could go to OT, shout, scream, swear and spit at the opposition fans, players and the ref, I wasn't told to sit down, stop swearing and behave. and by the time I came out all that aggresion had gone. Kids today have nowhere to vent that primeval instinct that we all still have. So they go out on a saturday night like a pack of wolves and pick on some poor bloke out for a good night out

Bring back Terraces, remove womens toilets and segragate the fans with a few of the odd lot and the world will be a better place. ;)

They have them at ALL G.A.A. games mate...;)

Only reason people think Dublin is because of Hill 16 at Croker! One of the best
atospheres I ever had there was againts Tyrone a while back when we took them
to a replay after a Mossy Quinn point frm 45 metres of the ground! :D:D

Amazing, one of THE things to do if your ever in Dublin around Summer time...go
to a Dubs game! ;)




BTW, congrats on taking your daughter stockport6, I'm sure she'll remember it for
life, and I still remember my first game I went to adn almost everything about it!
Especially looking out from the concourse adn seeing the pitch for the first ever
time, I remember it like it was only yesterday...

Went a bit like this...


Me; *walking up the steps and seeing it* WOW!! Dad, look...look....

and it was similar to that. :eek:..

Make sure to continue bringing her an dgetting her really involved in United!

Actually, a good while back, end of the 06/07 season, I was at a game, and took
a picture of the urinals at OT on my phone! :p :eek:....seemed like a good thing to
do at the time! lol...

..its saved on my computer at home too! :D...Anyone wants to see it, just post,
and I'll post it up later...;)...(Noting "wrong" or rude in it)

Great post mate and am glad Stephen was able to sort you out with tickets.
Good to hear about your old experiences of OT as well.
You did raise some very valid and interesting points as well, especially this
one that had never really crossed my mind.

Hope you bring your kid to more games....She will be nagging you to go now, thats for sure ;)

Keano,

Have you ever been to a do at OT. I went to a wedding and the toilets are great. You actually get a choice. They have the ones like that and the full length silver splash your shoes ones. They just think of everything at OT ;;;; )

Well, that's what you should have been doing instead of taking photos of the urinals ya weird fella ya!!! :p

If you want a picture of your 'throne' why don't you take a sticky label with your name on it, stick it on your seat and take a picture of that. :D
