    It was definitely seated but everyone was stood in the seats.

    Easy mistake... I think most of us had spent all afternoon on strong Belgian Beer

    The thing I remember most was City fans getting in using beer mats as match tickets and then after the game hundreds of blues getting into the train station by climbing up a grass embankment and over the tracks

    don't remember it raining that night at Elm Park but it certainly was a shite performance.

    Good job we weren’t discussing this in the pub as I’d have gone all in on standing! That’s a 24 hour session for you.

    I'm pretty sure we were standing in a seated area. Though their end was a terrace.

    I’m working in Brighton on the railway and was next to the Withdean the other day. How the hell they coped playing there I do not know. There is one stand and just a running track. They obviously had temporary stands but it must have been a logistical nightmare.
    Standing games I can recall was Oxford (manor ground), Colchester and York back in the dark days
