I had the misfortune of driving one of these arseholes to the Arsenal final.
He drank from Yorkshire to Wembley, which I don’t have a problem with but he was obnoxious in the ground. Luckily he was in a row in front.


He left in a strop before the end of the game and took the train home.

Ah yes. Sorry about that.

Ha, it wasn't your fault Drummond! I appreciate what you did.

The other passenger was lovely and I've been told he's normally a decent guy.
Just not pissed.

Saw no bad behaviour all day. On a slight tangent, couple in front of us (block 136), chap in his fifties, female mid twenties, stood up all match,uttered not one word of encouragement to the team the whole match. Not one clap.
Just a disinterested stare at the pitch, like they'd never been to a match. Must admit it was unsettling.
I was in Block 128 but this perfectly describes the couple to my right.
Whilst I was pulling my hair out at misplaced passes, shouting to our players to keep the ball, calling Lee Mason a twat and going nuts when we scored they showed no response whatsoever to anything that happened on the pitch or around them. Strange.

I also went to The Green Man, as usual, and other than a few idiots letting off flares, I saw no bad behaviour at all... just lots of slightly pissed, happy people and one stroppy youngster who got very upset when someone bumped into him and he spilt beer on his white t-shirt.

Realised when I read this that I should have pointed out it wasn't me! Haha

That was quite a day you had though.

There was trouble at the services on the way back too. I stayed on the minibus trying to kip so didn’t see it but was apparently old fashioned our lot against their lot.

Whilst it wasn't trouble a couple of older Villa fans chanted "Champions of Europe you'll never sing that" at a couple of City fans at the services we stopped at. Everyone else pretended to ignore it. Made me feel strangely sad for some reason.

Generally didn't see any aggro. The biggest bell end was a City fan on the tube who said to my 8 year old "we might let you have the ball for a few minutes" to which MDC Jnr deadpanned "wow thanks" in a reasonably sarcastic way which made us laugh.
