I remember watching the match against West Ham on the telly (when we won 4-0) and hearing that for the first time.

I only got to go a couple of seasons before it was all seater. What stuck with me was the away fans hoyed in the pit between the gallowgate and East Stand. I think it was the K section where you could lord it over them and hurl abuse (and anything else you wanted).

 

You don't get wet at the match these days.

 

Nor do you get completeley rat arsed blokes turning their back to the game for long stretches (seemed like they'd miss entire halfs to me at the time but I'm sure they didn't), climbing on one of the crush barrier things and leading the entire Gallowgate for song after song, conducting with their arms waving all over. He'd be asked to sit down now :icon_lol:

Snowball fights between the corner and scoreboard

 

for that matter any kind of rivalry between sections of the ground, all of thats gone now, you dont get to feel part of a subgroup like back then, even now if someone says they used to stand in the Gallowgate my first question is Corner or scoreboard? the reply of Corner being met with a shake of the head and the quiet mutterings of "wanker" :icon_lol:

They were quiet as fuck in there too. Chants of "sing in the corner" or "sing in the scoreboard" was always met with deafening noise. "Sing in the centre-west" was always met with a muffled noise.

 

Of all the standing areas in the ground (I stood in them all at one point or another, I always preferred the Leazes paddocks. The amount of shit handed out to the away lot in the west Leazes section was immense.

 

The match when we played Spurs (when Gazza scored both goals) there was a meat pie artillery assault on that section - the bloke selling meat pies must have thought it was his lucky day! Happy memories :icon_lol:

I still think anyone from the east stand is a twat if that's any good to you. :icon_lol:
