    Yes I agree, but as I've said, if the new parking restrictions do come into force then half the stadium will be gone with ten minutes of the game left

    If we have 50,000 City fans in the stadium and 20,000 are parked on official or unofficial car parks
    10,000 may walk into town or to wherever
    A couple of thousand hang around for a beer
    Public transport has to deal with almost 20,000 supporters

    That's why I prefer the away games, there's more chance of people joining in if you start singing. And the atmos is usually excellent. Whereas up in level 3 you stand up and start clapping or, heaven forbid, start a song and there will be many who give you a look, others may just keep striaght ahead and not look at the "nutter" behind you. You can't suddenly make a whole bunch of people passionate.

    And to stop people leaving early? Provide more buses and trams, leaving every 2 mins.

    Just wait a minute, you're alleging the press actually come on here and do actual research in order to write these articles?

    why do we as fans still accept we cant take our beer to our seats ? we have been made to sit now in the prem for several decades and as football fans we can't even take a drink to our overpriced seats.if there is a concert or rugby match at the etihad its no problem but footy ? no way.maybe we as city fans should boycott all food and drinks inside the ground and hope other clubs follow suit until the power that be stop treating us like second class citizens.

    regarding the trams,why are there always so many for people going back into town ? everyone waiting for an ashton tram see's several go past us with " not in service " on it till it gets to asda and changes tracks to come back to take people into town,jesus,you can walk it in 10-15 minutes.its so bad Iv gone back to the snail crawling buses after games now.

    I have seen similar threads on the scouse forums and Utd and others... atmosphere in the modern day game is shite due to tickets being priced out of range of the working class who make the noise. I dont think this is a City problem.... I dont even know if this article in the DMail is real or just based on bullshit, but they certainly know how to rile the fans


    Soz if already posted

    So why is the atmosphere shit when we've been 4 up v Bournemouth for example?

    It's all a load of bollocks that's why. The atmosphere at any ground in England is similar, it has high points and low points during each individual game. The more the fans think the team are being shafted the better the atmosphere imo. We seem to hate that more than us giving anyone a good spanking. I've said it before but over here compared to the continent the majority of fans go to watch the game and take in the tactics etc.. rather than go to hear a fucking drum beaten for 90 minutes. Hate the atmosphere in England go to a game in Turkey.
    As for fans leaving early, yes the club needs to look at ways to minimise issues leaving but it's always been the same and nothing will change it.

    He he, so you think the fans in the rest of Europe are tactically naive. That made me chuckle.
    Actually having watched Many matches in Spain I think the atmosphere is better there for 2 reasons.
    1 cheaper tickets so working class still go.
    2 They actually go to enjoy themselves
    rather than here where people go to let off steam and moan after having a shit week at work in miserable weather , traffic etc.

    I went to Malaga v Barcelona last season and had a belting time. I'd go back in a heartbeat. Loads of British people taking the match in. I guess some expats (Guiri Army) and some on holiday like me.

    Yes Malaga is great and a bit different.
    I also love the andulucian and Basque grounds.
