You cant beat being inside a packed molineux, especially when we score a last minute winner, what a tremendous high that is.

The Leicester home game 4-3 was one of my favourite second halves ever.

The 3-2 away to Derby in the promotion season '09 was one of my best away games too. Mainly for the significance rather than the scoreline.

Got the best of both worlds against Villa. They were loud at 2-0 up, with a great home atmosphere. Then we had the carnage that followed our third goal that I won’t forget in a long time.

That was certainly the case up to 5 or 6 years ago but I hear very little of that where I sit. It’s mostly at the ref.
Can't say I've heard anything aimed at the ref from round by us...

To be fair the bunch round by us are all sound, no moaners bar the blonde one season wonder, and bar pieman and his missus and the serial pisser everybody just watches the game.

I don't really get the debate here. Has anyone actually said they prefer watching it on TV?

I would say being in the ground and the matchday experience as a whole is better in every way compared to watching on TV or a dodgy stream.
Depends how thick your wallet is, I suppose.

Going to live sporting events is cool but I didn't grow up with it, so I could take it or leave it. NFL tickets were always way more expensive than my family could ever afford.

EDIT: I've just realized that my long-standing social anxiety issues probably play a massive role in this, as well.

People are trying to work out why posters on the matchday thread appear to be more unhappy than people at the ground and I'm sure it's because there's more going on irl (off the ball movement, general atmosphere etc) than you can see on a stream.

Also at a live match an expression of unhappiness will be a shout or scream that lasts a few seconds and is then over, the equivalent post is there permanently even though the emotion behind it will probably have passed.

Its also the replays. You get four or five views and spot something wrong with each viewing or angle and it can make you more irritated (hands up that's me) So it can be 3 or 4 posts about the same incident varying in their degrees of sanity and rational thought , starting with FFS! moving to WTF was TRAORE/ NEVES/ COADY doing there, to MARCAL cant defend/ was out of position and finishing with FUCK OFF MIKE DEAN.

This post and the two above it are absolutely correct. I assumed all this stuff was really, really obvious - which is why it's always baffled me that people get so worked up over a matchday thread or the postings within it.

Storm/teacup.

You say it's obvious, I still say it's completely baffling.

People walking away from a free, illegal stream on 70 minutes FFS :D

Each to their own.
Well yeah, if people are doing that it's weird, but there are different levels of support, I guess. I was referencing the nature of the posts within the thread itself.

Two of my favourite games. That Villa game must have been up there with them - wish I'd been there for that as well.

Leicester 4-3 is my favourite match that I've attended since the 70s ( Arsenal 5-1 and Leeds Munrogate game then)

Don't ever watch it back, you'll ruin it. I did during Lockdown 1. It's an awful game of football, the standard is atrocious from both teams.

Favourite game is now the quarter final vs United at home.

Albion away '89. I think it probably always will be. Not just not for the last minute winner, but everything it signified after the previous 6 years or so

I’m sad enough still to be on cloud nine after Saturdays game. Didn’t go, I was travelling about so didn’t see a stream so it was a combination of car radio, radio in the garden and then walked in to sky sports news just as they were at the game for the Neves free kick. Me and my eldest went bonkers as Tim Sherwood described the ball going in. I was happy as Larry with a point having been two down.
I work with mainly Villa fans, my cricket club is full of them too so to beat them the way we did was brilliant. Strange how there wasn’t a single post on the game on my cricket clubs WhatsApp group? Must have been because a called them all a bunch of classless c@&£s for rubbing my nose in it last season.
Pat Murphy on five live getting more and more somber with each report was priceless too. I’ve never watched so many highlights and vlogs of a game!
Still delighted 😀
