My dad and my grandad had terrific seats in the old West Stand 1969-70 season, third row. You would enter the stand from the top and walk down to your seat, that was quite unusual I think, but it was very impressive. Bit like walking up the aisle!
As my grandad got older he didn't go every week so that was my introduction, and we kept those seats for quite a few years.
Then as we started to go downhill a bit my dad stopped going regularly and I would either go in the benches or The Shed.
Like a lot of fans i expect, i had all sorts of matchday superstitions involving parking/clothes/scarf/crossing legs all that sort of thing so it is weird that i don't remember standing anywhere in particular, it was just a case of getting a space where i could get a decent view. Generally this would be halfway up/halfway down and either "middle" or "west side". The white wall seemed to be for the nutters! Too near the front and you couldn't see the other end of the pitch, too far back and you could only just about see the near side of the pitch! Too squashed in and you couldn't see anything except the bloke in front. But wherever you were, the atmosphere in The Shed was great and I now had a chance of hearing the words to songs that I had vaguely been able to listen to from the West Stand - oh, your old lady is a ....!
Been back pretty infrequently the last 20 years and just think myself lucky to have watched football in the vintage years before all seaters.
