Not been to a home game for a while Couldn’t believe the amount of people leaving from 80 minutes onwards

Bloke near us left bang on 90 minutes. Makes zero difference or sense...he lives locally too. We travelled back to Coventry with a drop off in Didsbury and a coffee stop at Keele. We were back at 7.45. Leaving early simply makes no difference.

Isn't a new thread opened for this at least three times a season?

Absolute bollocks mate. If you park on a City carpark and live in Sheffield, like my brother, it's taking you 3 hours to get home easily.

It's not just City matches, I went to the Magic Weekend a few years back and was stuck on the main carpark for an hour and half. They either need to sort out the carparks or let people stay in the stadium after the match and keep the bars open like they did at Maine Road.

When I go to watch City now I train it, so it makes no difference to me. But not everyone gets the train or Met.

But why the hell this is happening?

My last game at home was with Arsenal, on a saturday, at 15:00, and people were still leaving early. I understand, traffic, but what the hell?

Main car park is therefore the issue. 5 quid car park half a mile from the ground is perfect for maybe 20 minutes in clag. I wouldn't use the club car parks as anything that close to the ground is awful.

Can understand why Blues leave early as it's a thing, just don't piss people off by walking/standing in front of them.

That's why the fiver ones get filled up quick. The club ones are absolutely awful and have been since we moved to the stadium. Can't understand why the club still haven't done anything. You've got three of the carparks that share an exit - it's ridiculous!!

When I have driven I've tried to wait in the ground afterwards as it was leathering it down, so the traffic would have died down a bit. The stewards were trying to turf me out literally as there were still players clapping the fans off. Got threatened with Show Sec but refused to move.

The club need to look at what they're doing to help the fans after the game imo.

I just think our fans get an enormous amount of stick from pundits, media, other fans etc. We don't need to give our own fans stick mate.

I think that sometimes like yesterday at 75 mins in, the players start just passing it around and not really arsed about trying to score. when its a tight game and we are 1-1 2-1 then they do try to score but when its 4-0 they don't try as hard. so some people decide that we wont score again and go,
we go into mary ds after the game and have a couple of beers and wait for the bus to pick us up at 5-40 and we get home just as quick as leaving at 5 with the traffic

Agree the club car parks are a huge issue, I did use them for one season because I got it as a freeby from the club for agreeing to move seats. A total nightmare, and this was when we were still shite.

That said, I've never had any problem getting in a fiver car park, even when I turned up late for a derby match.

And I do agree with the stewards acting like total cnuts if you don't leave straight away.

But I really don't think the hoards who start leaving on 80 minutes are solely down to the club car parks, and I've got to admit it really pisses me off. Not angry of annoyed, just a bit sad because it gives the impression they don't really give a shit about the club.

And at all levels. I was at Wycombe v Reading a few weeks ago and a guy left after 72 minutes, saw him leave and walking across the car park. It was the Carabao cup and 1-1 at the time, so serve him right that Reading won on pens.

Most other teams play shit football so is understandable if some cunts leave their games early................meanwhile we play out of this world football so the players do not deserve to witness cunt s streaming out of the stands 10 fuckign minutes early !!

I never left early when I went to league games and that was when we were fucking shit !!
THEY SAY SWEARING IS DUE TO A LIMITED VOCABULARY. I KNOW THOUSANDS OF WORDS, BUT I STILL PREFER "FUCK OFF" TO "GO AWAY"
