Your support is not that great

In addition to that, though, as others have said, police and stewards were turning people back from the chip van area and so you had hundreds of people pushing towards the South Stand and others who were still heading in the other direction towards the ramps and the train station. So two large groups of people, crushing against each other as they headed in opposite directions.The issue in the North last season was that the North West exit was closed so everyone had to walk through the concourse to get out and met a lot of people going the same way.
Even when we went to leave an hour later we still had to leave by North East exit.
In addition they didn't open the large exit where players used to go, but expected everyone to leave via the turnstiles exit. This caused a number of stoppages of people trying to get out and a lot of pushing and a bit of a crush.
Whole thing was nuts and scary.
