Not really playing it down here - as you say it was still pretty unpleasant and several people were quite visibly distressed/affected even in the upper tier.......feel for anyone with respiratory problems in particular as it would have been horrible - my throat was burning.
Ditto.

On upper tier but near blocked exit where it was wafting in. Coppers put masks on, we next to them had no way out.

Had face in t-shirt and hands cupped over eyes.

A young lad about 10 was taken out crying like crazy. Not a pleasant end to an otherwise fantastic trip overall.

So, I'm slightly ashamed to say i still don't actually know who this guy is. I mean, i see him a lot, and he looks fun, but who exactly is he?

Vincenzo Teresa, first team athletic coach and also known for playing Gregg Wallace on Masterchef.

Edit - boo, see the joke has already been made several times, thats what you get for replying before reading the rest of the thread properly.

Probably fixtures but whichever next stage we go through to, are they going to be home and away, or just a straight match with (I guess) extra time and pens?

I don't know why but I've found it hard to get my head around some of the EL malarkey, head-to-head trumping GD, all that sort of stuff...

None, or maybe one fella off to the right, who clearly got out of his bed on the wrong side, yesterday morning.

Barber-Out will point to the extreme provocation and the fact that 99.9% of us were model customers.
The .1% will be quietly forgotten about.
Was a few rows behind… long of the short of it one of his group was punched on the sly when an Athens fan reached round and tried to steal their banner, before full-time
Think he then also took a pint glass of water in the face

I took the contents of one plastic beaker right in the face.

I'm not entirely sure it was water contained therein, and have just put all of my clothing on for a nice wash.

Two legs in every round except for the final. No away goals rule so extra time and penalties at the end of the second leg if scores are level.

Did anyone go to Little Kook? It’s a coffee shop (although it did have a 33cl bottle of Methos on the menu for €8.50)
The wife loved it, although I’m going to hunt down and kill the fellow Albion fan that told her to go there, and subsequently take me. (without describing it)

Glad you mentioned that too. You’ve got stewards trying to calm things down and probably a dozen idiots giving it back and thinking they’re heroes. Very lucky the police turned the other cheek. If they come in to get them, as arguably they should, the whole dynamic can turn and get very ugly for everyone. We’ve seen it happen to other clubs enough times. When there are thousands of people clamouring for these tickets, I’ve got no tolerance for anyone whose instinct is to try to cause or encourage trouble. Won’t be a popular view here but there are at least 3 who don’t deserve to go in future. Let someone else. Overall, thought our fans’ reaction was bloody magnificent.
You are kidding me. NSC is 99% sensible. It will be a very popular view on here :thumbsup:

Was 50 yards around the corner from where we were staying. Couldn’t really miss it.

Incidentally, did the top tiers have proper beer on sale like we did in 47?
