Anyone else in the concourse for first goal ?

Recommended Posts

:laughcont:

Got way laid chatting to a mate in concourse at half time , must have been over a thousand still under Dolman....

Massive roar from inside the Gate ...........

In a moment everyone falls silent, a thousand heads turn in unison to the nearest screen............just in time to see Plato’s cross and andreas’s header............

explosion of noise and scenes.....scenes........and a lot of noise.........Brilliant and one of my favourite moments watching City 

Anyone else there ?

No but always wonder if there is something better the club can provide regarding the selling of drinks at half time. As we went back into the ground for the second half people were still queuing for drinks and ,I guess, would have missed the first quarter of an hour of the second half ? Don't know what the answer is.

Was in the coffee shop, didn't hear a thing. Wasn't until I got back to my seat on 48 minutes (at the back of the SS) that I thought something was different and looked at the board "oh were 1-0 up - get in, yes, bloody hell".

We get a few staff come round the wheelchair section in the opening 10 minutes, taking our half-time orders.  Very civilised. 😉

Wasn't in the concourse but had just landed at Bristol airport and turned on my phone just as the goal flashed up.

Got a few looks when I let out a "get in" ! But also a couple of lads asking if City had scored :clapping:

I was there too. Wasn't helped by no pre-poured pints, meaning massive queues in the concourse.

The anticipation, knowing something good was about to happen, was brilliant. 

Then up the steps to join in the celebrations!

It always amazes me how it is that people cant wait another 45 minutes before having more beer / food. It's not as though there isnt enough time before the game. Yes a quick pee stop or coffee to warm upat half time but not at the expense of missing any of the match. There is always an exodus starting on about 38 mins wtf !! And as for leaving the ground before the end why....just so you can go home to the missus earlier !!!

Blokes I meet up with always have a half time pint and always miss the first five minutes of the second half.

I don't like rushing me beer so don't bother, but we all have our rituals 🙂

I’m usually back at my seat for start of second half but yesterday went for a pee and then queued for  10 min for a hot drink, just missed the goal, busier yesterday due to bigger crowd

I’d just moved out my seat on the end of aisle to let someone get past me into where they were sitting. Luckily I turned back to the action just as Pato got into the box. Saved me the effort of getting out of my seat to celebrate!

On a related note, this was probably due to  the angle of where I was sitting but was I the only one who saw O’Dowda take the shot for the second goal, saw the keeper get a hand to it and was still groaning at the save until O’Dowda wheeled away in celebration?

Why in some cases it’s damned inconsiderate! I’m disabled, In the 10 minutes before 1/2 time  I have to get up and give way to at least 4 individuals, singly going to the bar! After the restart it only gets worse, first the late returners and then repeatedly disturbed through the half again by drinkers needing a pee!

and dont start about the assistant manager and loud mouth behind me! Christened Palmer “Cassie Pineapple-head” and wants everyone to hear what a witty **** he is!

Ended up there for the goal yes. Went down at HT with mates to get what I hoped was a swift pint and back by start of 2nd half- but still the delayed reaction then celebrations in the Concourse? Great moment!

As a side note, nothing to do with the club this point- but the national law/rule that you cannot drink in view of the pitch at professional football in UK? Proper anachronism.

Sit in the middle of the row if you don’t need to pee yourself

I get the impression that quite a lot of people actually watch the entire game in the councourse whilst having a few beers. 

Which is bloody mad for many reasons, including the fact pictures are delayed so you already know if we've scored, or conceded before you see it.

That’s only eight years ago! Blimey are Plato and Aristotle available?

Apparently not.  We have signed the odd Kant or two in the past though....

Exactly, the same people wouldn’t be happy if the stewards didn’t let them in until 10 mins after kick off. 

I know some people have at times needs to be somewhere else after the match but to do it on a regular basis is a bit odd.

I believe it was trialled here, so I guess not viable, perhaps due to cost? Last place I saw this system was at Chester races.

The four of us sitting in Dolman Block 30 also thought the keeper had saved it, although I did see the ball again just before it went over the line. I think it must have been rolling out of sight behind the keeper from our angle, so our brains were convinced the ball had actually stopped.

Exactly my view, only saw the ball again as it was going over the line!
