Been to loads of neutrals and I agree. Gives you the chance to meet some great people and watch a game without caring about the result. Just get to watch the football. Having said that when I was with the Bradford fans at VP when they got through to the cup final a couple of years ago I went mental when they scored. Also it was good to be there last year when Wilson did something that most of have wanted to do in becoming the first Cov kid ever to score there.Have done similar when Villa were in Europe and played Deportivo La Coruna at Villa Park. Me and a mate were in the away end with the Spaniards who had travelled, and so were a lot of other English supporters, judging from their shirts. A good friendly atmosphere in our end together with a 2-1 win for Depo, complimented by the Spanish wine pouches that had mysteriously got past security and which the Spanish fans were more than happy to share with their English hermanos
Contrary to some opinions here, being a part of another teams fans albeit for only one game can be quite eye-opening. We think our problems are deep but listening to other fans shows every club has their own issues, most never covered by the national press.
For those going, I say "Enjoy yourselves. Be sensible. Respect the Bournemouth fans and team and try to avoid demeaning Coventry City. And most of all, enjoy the drink afterwards when Villa are down "
