BANNER WATCH

In the first half, back behind our goal, in the far left, it looked like that was our banner back there. The light actually wasn't that great on it, as one of the circles wasn't that visible, and the writing wasn't visible at all. But I think that is where I seen it too

Hopefully we will have some pics and find out what happened first hand. happy0034.gif

Nearly back in the land of the living ! .. still knackered. Had some travel nightmares but made it and made it back.

The banner... first of all, whoever takes this monster in the future, take someone with you to help.. although I had loads of people helping me out, they disappeared after the match when I had to retrieve it, fold it up, get out of the ground al before the W****** lifted the trophy.. no mean feat.

The banner was displayed half way up on the right of the goal as you face it... it was difficult to display as I was right next to the players tunnel and the russian police, army and every other type of uniformed bod had a big say in where I could put it. Although they did help me tie it up !

Tried to get out in Red square.. almost arrested !!! (talking about the banner still btw icon_lol.gif )

Went through several security checks during the day and had to get it out and fold it again several times.. a nightmare !!!

Anyway the positives... it had so many comments, positive ones, everyone was very impressed. I have some of my photos which I will have to try and retireve from a knackered Camera.. (it basically got soaked !!) ...

Most of the photo's where taken outside the ground. there were several press photogrophers as well. of the English press there was The Mail and The Mirror.. I am not sure if they will appear.. but they took photo's with some women holding it, and standing in front of it, russian soldiers, all sorts.. lots of people coming up and wanting their photo taken. There were basically hundreds of photo's taken....

As a precausion I got the email address of some others there who took poto's so some should appear soon hopefully by the end of tomorrow I will do my best.

Coco... the banner went down really well ! Thanks mate, PM where you wanted it posted backed to, try and do it over the weekend.

We were robbed btw... I am gutted but very proud to be there, and very proud of the team clap2.gif

Some of my own recovered pics posted in the Gallery... Apologies for the quality of some of them.

Spent a lot of time holding the thing so found out that I did not have many of the banner itself. There are a few more I can post later.

Also, hopefully some more to come soon form other cources.... plus I got quite a few of the Stadium etc.. afraid the camera went away at Kick off and didnt come out again for obvious reasons !

Good God it is a beast of a thing!!! I hadn't realised quite how big it was until I saw the picture of it in the stadium and you could see who many 'seats long' it was.

Great effort Andy

That's what they all say to me Loz icon_lol.gif

Yep it was hard to find a spot for the thing.. tried to get it a little nearer the front but they where not having it mainly because of the size..... but it is a smart banner, some really nice comments, and of course a few verses of "shed end shed end giv' us a song"

You've got quite a work-out logging that thing around, Andy! But it looks to have paid off: you seem to have met lots of busty blondes icon_lol.gif

Seriously though: I take my hat off for you, on some occasions you must have regretted taking it with you clap2.gif

And welcome back after the nightmare journey and gutting result: take a pint, put your feet up, and plot your trip to Rome (and let someone else take the banner icon_wink.gif )

You're on ChElSea.gif !

Graphics gurus: I think we need a smiley (preferably one resembling Andy) holding a mini Shed End banner!
