Review by Norwich City fan Callum
Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?
This was the first away game for us after Covid that was available and it is a good ground and guaranteed to see some good players at Man City.
How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?
I took the train, which made for a long day. Train home was cancelled so had to take 5 different ones to get home which was ridiculous and expensive.
If you got the train, how easy did you find it to make your way to the stadium from the station?
I arrived into Manchester Victoria which was around 2.5 miles in the rain – there is a tram but was busy and probably slower so couldnt be bothered with that. Went back from Manchester Picadilly which was about half an hour away.
Where did you eat on your away day and was it good value?
I went to a shopping mall in the middle of Manchester and ate Mcdonald’s so was very standard.
What did you think of the food and drink available inside the ground?
Was alright, didn’t really look at the food but they gave me my drink for half price for some reason so I was happy but even at full price they are not too bad.
What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?
Away fans are in the corner over 3 levels I think however they were only in 2 levels when I went. I was in the higher one which still was a decent view. Could see the game well with nothing blocking my sight.
What was the atmosphere like during the match?
Pretty dry from the home fans considering they won 5-0, our fans were quiet too which isn’t surprising.
How friendly were the home fans out of 10?
How easy did you find it to get away from the stadium after the game?
Wasn’t too bad, there was lots of people but most roads around the ground were shut and then just flooded with people even after that. Think it would be a nightmare for cars.
How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?
About £90-£100 which was awful I thought, mainly the trains fault though.
Would you recommend this away day to other fans?
Alright away day to be honest, Manchester is a good city and it is a class ground – atmosphere is dry but good day out.
