Sat in the Lincoln end this season.

Not even sure Forest post-Wilbraham counts as a pitch invasion.

I've led a sheltered life.

If you're on the pitch it counts in my eyes.

Active through the late 70's and 80's with the likes of FD, GL, P, Little Hulton lads, a few scrapes, thrown out of many grounds mainly for going in their 'end', had a few good hidings (most notable Chelsea away 6.12.76.) gave a few out, never arrested although held without charge many times, usually to make us miss our train home, dragged out of a pub in Coventry by BT Police (ex wife's new husband was an Inspector with them and thought he was being clever), overall we had a blast for 20 years, times change and we get old but the memories are still intact.

Similar. 

I’m a lover not a fighter 😉

Does mingling mean fighting? 0 if that’s the case. But I’ve been in the enemy end about 10 times- worst experience Bradford, best City.

All pitch invasions mass ones - Home to Peterborough and Forest and at Burnden after Preston game for promotion. 

Not a very good bad boy record, but a decent one to share with your kids that being passionate, having a laugh and following the best team in the world home and away doesn’t mean getting into bother.

Thrown out 0

Refused entry 0 although threatened to be refused, 2 or 3

Mingling in away end, a few.  Most notable Bristol City where about 6 of us decided it may be a laugh. Fortunately, as the local dickheads realised, so did the coppers. Got escorted around the pitch to rapturous applause from rest of Bolton fans. I stopped the adrenaline-fed shakes about half way up the M6 which was strange; we’d gone down on the train but felt it safer to go out with the bigger mob and onto a coach. 

Arrested 0

Pitch invasions,probably about 5. 

Bans 0

Never had a problem at footy

Bizarrely when hooliganism was at its height in the 90s I had more problems at Rugby League games

Arrested - 1 Widnes

Denied entry - 2 Leigh both times

Mingling with problems in the away end - St Helen’s and Warrington numerous times

Once had the away end for Sheffield United slag off my top as I was laughing at their fancy dress costumes.

It was not, by the way, a tracksuit from Matalan, as they en masse claimed.

That's as close to danger as I like to get.

And the 70s & 80s were just warm ups.

By the 90s the all out terrace war petered out as the protagonists got hooked on Acid and other such like drugs, from then on in away games were a walk in the park in comparison to the 70s & 80s.

Indeed, that was my point. The 70s & 80s were medieval compared to later years.

Anyway, I got thrown out 5 times. None of which I really deserved.

A similar CV, i travelled with FD, Lol & Barney's "mob", mostly the same people, one arrest, one night in A&E, chucked out once or twice & on quite a few "ends"......some more succesful than others !!

It could be scary & some things went too far but i can't say i regret it & am still friends with lots from that period & get invited to the reunions even though i'm very different now & have been for years. 

I'm glad it's over but fear that football is going a bit too far the other way with some people wetting themselves because an empty, plastic bottle gets thrown !!
