A few years ago we played Leicester in a PSF
20 mins into the game a LCFC strips off to his undies and runs onto the pitch from the away end.
I led him away and he was a complete a**e so he got locked up.

He got a football banning order the next week and missed the whole of the LCFC premiership winning season.
Whilst not the funniest at the time it still makes me laugh now !!

Late 90s at home, from memory it was either Gillingham or Barnet, and some of their fans were housed on the small terrace between Bishop Street Stand and the Quarry Lane End. Somebody jumped out of there, stark naked, and had a run round on the pitch. Stewards were chasing him but he managed to evade them all, get back onto the terrace and disappear into a crowd. By the time the stewards got in there he was fully clothed and I would imagine there wasn't any decent CCTV to identify him so he got away with it completely.

One of the houses behind Bishop St stand lighting a coal fire and all the smoke drifting over the pitch.. I'm sure they were burning railway sleepers soaked in tar!

I can think of at least two occassions where he could have ended up in serious (as in life threatening) situations if other folk hadn't have looked after him.


I can absolutely guarantee you that no one I know has ever 'encouraged' him to get blind drunk. He's a fully grown adult and does whatever he likes. I also can't recall a single time that any of my mates have ever considered being paralytic to be cool or acceptable, and none have ever gone over the top with the banter to the point it would 'disrespect' him. I'm sure if one of his mates fell asleep during the second half of a match he'd have no hesitation in putting chips on their head. :lol:

He's calmed down a lot now (married life :lol:) and perhaps i didnt see the 'life threatening' incidents you mention. But I'm sure he looks back on a lot of the drunken away days of old fondly, as we all do.

Scarborough away. Open away terrace. Scarborough fans singing 'your getting wet, we're not'. Stags fans emerge from toilet block wit a hosepipe and spray the Scarborough fans in adjoining stand

Because of course I stood over him and poured a bottle of vodka down his neck at 7 o clock in the morning.

Rushden Diamonds away. You could smoke in the ground back then. Woman in front had her coat on the back of her seat with the hood hanging over in front of my mate sat at the side of me. He used to smoke like a chimney and midway through second half a plume of smoke started rising from the hood of this womans coat where a stray bit of Fag ash must have landed and set her coat on fire. He managed to put it out without her ever finding out!!

In about 2004 there was a guy my mates and I affectionately called "p*$$ head Pete" whom we could see most weeks in the West Upper block J. Stags were playing Hull at home on this occasion and before the game had even started Pete had rather too much to drink. He staggered to his seat where he slumped over, falling asleep. We could see he was about to happen... he began to slump so far forward he fell over and "surfed" over the next two or three rows in front. :lol: :lol:

If he had been sitting in the first couple of rows I'm in no doubt he would have gone over the front of the upper tier. :shock:

Stags v Rotherham, late 60s or early 70s and a one man pitch invasion from QLE. Giving it the big 'I am' to all the Stags fans so the copper let his dog loose. Said "fan" saw the dog coming and turned on a sixpence to make his escape but slipped over in the Field Mill mud. The dog had him for lunch and we all pi$$ed ourselves!!

On a similar vein some very drunken and loud away supporters giving it large to a mounted policeman outside the ground. I can't remember the team but it was in the seventies.

On of said fans was really shouting at the mounted officer and without any prompting or instruction, the horse lifted its head and brought its bit down on top of said fan's head with considerable force. It knocked him out cold and his mates just walked off and left him.

The officer just patted the horses neck and walked it away. And they say animals are dumb.
Who are you calling pedantic? I resemble that remark!

Home game in the late 90's when a stags fan marched out of the North Stand, straight through all the players to the centre circle, bare chested with his stags top in his hand.

He then threw is top down on the centre circle in disgust before marching back towards the stand.

Can't remember if he got nicked or not but I laughed for weeks about that one!

Also seem to remember the copper getting his helmet back after it had been kicked around by Stags fan minus the top of it. Cue chant ‘Where’s ya nipple gone?’ From Stags fans.

Late 80's Early 90's, first game I took my son too, Wrexham home.

Was it a free kick I don't remember, their goalkeeper kicked the ball towards his goal at quarry lane end from infront of west stand, I also don't remember which stags player tapped into the net for a goal, think we won 3-0?
