used to sit in the stoke end with me grandad, behind the away fans. always remember when it was a big game they moved us to butler street stand. it was from there i was right behind that mad stein shot against man u which beat shmeichel in the first half.
but what about the Stoke End terrace at the front of that stand, I was in there when we gained promotion against Plymouth. Remember after they opened the gates going onto the pitch to celebrate................................................ Good days!!!
if or when we get promoted this season I will stay away from the pitch but they were great days.......... I remember when the away supporters were put in the butler street stand and the Stoke End terrace (full of Stokies) used to taunt the Boothen End, before the Boothen showed us who was boss. The atmosphere was amazing.
My first ever Stoke game was in the Butler Street Paddock.
I remember leaping up and down like a complete fucking nutter when we scored. After some old bloke said to me "you belong over there (meaning the Boothen End) with the rest of the looneys". I took that as a complement!
