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. ;)

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 ;;;; )
