    Pre match at City

    5 of us going over with one lad on driving duty. Never been City before so don't know what to expect pre match but setting off nice and early.

    Anyone have any suggestions of where to get a beer?

    Around the ground there are not too many away friendly pubs. You could try the Townley as that's where I have been in the past. If you don't have colours on you could try Mary D's, all they play in there is Stone Roses, Oasis and anything of the ilk. Very home orientated though. I dont know if the Eastlands Bar is still open but I went in there a few years back and all the girls behind the bar were wearing City boob-tubes and hot pants. Nice.

    City fans don't really mind us that much, so as long as you ain't a dickhead, you should be alright. The pubs mentioned above I went in without colours, but I saw people with colours on.

    I remember a guy parking a Merc way there and he was told that it was a daft place to park. He had a Rotwieller in the car and arrogantly said that he was sure his car would be fine. He got back to find the back window bricked and a cat had been chucked in. It was a bit of a mess to say the least!

    It certainly is.

    Although if he ends up around that area then Accy's early drinky poos has seriously got out of hand and he's properly well toasted.

    This one's not an urban legend, it's the real deal. I saw the aftermath and it was disgusting. The earlier bit may have been b0llocks about him parking, as I was told that bit. It was after gig Debbie's brother dragged me to on free ticket because his mate had dropped out, not a footy match. Don't think the car owner was at the gig, don't how long he'd parked up for. It was rough sh1thole though, I remembe

    Ok Accers. Mary Ds is about your best bet for some scoops and as for parking, I'm told it's ok near the Chinese supermarket on Oldham Rd. There is a school near the ground too where it's a fiver to park.

    Cheers for the tips lads. With over 4000 tickets sold for the away end I'm sure we won't be on our own tracking down a pint!

    How many tickets were City willingly allowing you for this fixture? Is it 20%, 25% of the ground capacity in the F.A Cup or do the big clubs just make it up?

    I think 15% is the minimum

    we were originally allocated 2800 but has increased due to demand...

    Brilliant following to a game that is televised on a cold Wednesday night.

    hi guys.

    you can park on mary'ds itself, I think its 7 quid. most are a fiver but a couple are tenner (robbing gets). you could pop in there for a beer, without colours though.we the fans are sound but the doorstaff wont let you in.a better idea is the waldorf near Piccadilly station. always good in there for home and away fans. its 5 mins by taxi (A?5) to the ground or the tram stops right across the road. buuls head further down is also sound along with KRO bar in Piccadilly itself.do nice food in there.
