To be fair he praises the Chester fans in the West, Harry Mac and most of the Main Stand as 'good fans'. Rightfully has a go at the ones in H Block, and again rightfully states that most don't come to most games.

Good watch, the over confidence in the first 10-15mins is brilliant to watch and then the last 5mins is glorious.

Fair play to the lad, that how a rivalry should be - give the oppos loads, but not let it get out of hand. Passionate, but a can give credit where its due bowdown.gif

I agree, Che - brilliant insight into derby day experience of most fans.

I thought it was great entertainment and very much how most fans feel on derby day

Knowing the result made it even more entertaining to watch, I must admit biggrin.gif

I don't think it's fair to even tarnish all of H block if I'm being honest.
I myself was in H block with my brother-in-law. There were some good decent older fellas in there too - all there to watch the football.
I went in there because I knew the atmosphere would be good and tense - as a derby should be. My days on the Harry Mac are long gone, and H block is where I have tended to go and sit for every match since.
I know what you're saying in backing up his remark about most who were in there probably don't come to most matches - but in fact there were a lot of regulars in H block - as well as a lot of lads who probably won't be at the next match against Welling of course.

On a side note, I was as disappointed at the "minutes silence" incident (a silence which sadly only lasted around 20 seconds) as the majority of the ground.
But again, to give my first hand account as a fan sitting there, just before the silence you could see the unrest and lack of enthusiasm for the silence from a small number of faces, while many other Chester fans in the H block appealed for the calm and silence, a few even shouting to "show some f*(king respect!" before the ref blew his whistle.
Unfortunately it only took one to disrupt the peace - and when a couple of others joined in it was literally that! You could count on one hand how many fans shouted and ruined it - it was nowhere near the "40" or even "around 90 or so of them" that the Wxm fans were claiming in that video!

Back to the video itself - it's a good account of the day from their perspective - captures the emotion and drama of it all nicely, and as much as it must have pained the guy, fair play to him for rolling the camera just as we equalised because it captures the moment and the contrast between the sets of fans. The viewing for the winning goal just makes it all the more enjoyable! biggrin.gif

Great stuff. Real. Honest. Brilliant insight into what it means being a football fan watching genuine football. Blue or red or whatever colour. As he says, being a fan isn't about watching Sky TV from the sofa.
Thanks for posting.

My dad told me about the terrible disaster and how children were donating pocket money in schools and mums were knitting blankets. In 1937, court proceedings were started in Wrexham against the Pit Manager, the Under-Manager and the United and Westminster Collieries Limited, the owners of the mine. The court found the mine's management guilty only of inadequate record-keeping. The links tells some of the story of that dreadful day.

As much respect I have for those who lost their lives in such a terrible disaster this wasn't the best game to have such a silence at.

I'm sure it would have made more sense to hold it at Wrexhams next home game.

Not condoning those who did break the silence, its just it was bound to happen when its something that was based in Wrexham such a long time ago.

Loved the bit where Hobo retrieves the ball from in front of the goats and they respond with 'who are ya?' And ' I hope that doesn't come back and bite us on the a**e!'

I'm sure older generations will remember how coal and heavy industry dominated areas which were really just a few miles from Chester itself. My dad was a miner at Point of Ayr colliery in the 50s and 60s. Was before I was born but he always told me it was the toughest job he ever had. Massive respect is due to those who died at Gresford and when that minute silence was broken it was a massive disappointment. Hope the club tracks down the culprits and deals with them.

Yeah apologies for that. Should have put 'rightfully has a go at the fans that disrepected the silence'. I know people who sit there regularly also and it is unfair to tarnish all that sat there with same brush.

I agree, these were working class lads, that died, working an extra shift to go to the match or take their families to a carnival. The 'idiot's' that disrupted the minutes silence should be identified and banned.

The guy with the rather fashionable helmet that did the commentary called those idiots in H block SCUM and he's right.

I feel that as the law dealt with the banner morons on 31/8/13, our club should deal with these scum and ban them for life.
