It’s such a poor indictment on society when the only reason for where the away fans section is placed is due to potential conflict between home and away fans.

Re: TONIGHT'S FOOTBALL

VC maybe what I am meaning is that they can afford to use a similar line up to tonight (more defensive) in the second leg and therefore go more attacking (Aguero for one) against us 3 days earlier.

Re: Can those of you who sit on the back row of the BL stand see the big screen ok?

I sit on Row P of Bob Lord and can see all of screen when sat down and not much of it when stood up. You can extrapolate from this how easy it is to see from any given row in BL.
