What used to be the neutral end at Fulham will now be home STHs, they will share the stand with away fans and more interestingly share the concourse with away fans...
Have I missed something here? That concourse has always been shared between home and away fans. Never been any trouble, away fans naturally float towards the far left of the stand. Bad news for any teams wanting to take a big following though, you’d imagine they’ll be a significant reduction in away allocation for the next two seasons.

Still get about 4k I reckon....

Though not like they will need the money.

Home fans generally haven’t been going in there as other areas of the ground haven’t sold out. If you look at the video below you see most the end get up for our goal as it was full of City fans.

Been drinking since 6, the buzz around Derby is spot on, a one team city, can not wait for Wembley, off to a beer festival tomorrow, then a dry Sunday, off on the mini bus at 6:30, hotel for the night, come on you Rams, let's be showing the southerns how to party, once a mad ram always a mad ram, to all championship lads who follow there team through thick and thin, this is what football is all about. Respect to all loyal fans across the championship. Support your local club, not Manu, Liverpool or anyone else.

That’s where we are heading tomorrow all day. Last time I drank round there we ended up drinking with some locals in The Sun, and going back to a house party indulging in some naughty stuff.

That's the spirit life is for living, might bump into you then, always enjoy the atmosphere around Covent Garden.

Which one?

Punch and Judy is great if you can get out on the balcony. I like the Nags Head up that way aswell.
Agree love punch and judys it will be packed on that balcony all weekend. Hope there is no road works on the M1 tomorrow, hope to be in London drinking around 10:30.

Might end up that way myself tomorrow evening. All depends on result etc I suppose.
Hope you get the result, if Derby do not win, then a trip to your place is always a good away day, as is most London clubs to be fair, fingers crossed for you, and hope we are both bouncing in Covent Garden come Monday evening, think all the play off games, this year will be close though. Hard to predict how any of them will go.

Unless you can see a different version to me you can't see most of the neutral end, in fact I can barely see any of it, about 4 rows right next to the away end which I would expect to be overflow away fans.
I'm sure it was full of away fans but the video (I see) really doesn't show it.

He knew that when he posted it. He's clearly put that video up so everybody can see that Bristol City sold out at Fulham.

Okay then.

Everybody in that video you can see in the neutral end gets up, which proves my point entirely. Have another image and video of other clubs to show that this is the case.


If you was trying to prove a point about away fans going in the neutral end you'd have put the Brentford video up first. You didn't, you put up a video barely showing the neutral end, but a sold out away end.
