following from something Basil-Don was saying in a different thread, where does everyone on here sit or stand (if your worried about stalkers lie..!)
i usually start off on the new terrrace after a few beers and if we are kicking that way stay there.. erring towards the bar side as its livelier that side.. if we are kicking towards the sea wall end then a few mins after kick off i make a move down that way going behind the seats. spend a while down there listening to the wags (when prothers is taking a free kick its top drawer stuff) then end up doing a full lap.. sometimes tho it is amusing to stand behind the away fans on the new terrace to listen to em

Between the bar and the players tunnel
Sometimes a walk round the ground

When I can afford to go - new (north/park lane end/memorial/conference folly) terrace about 10m in from the bar-side corner flag. Usually to be found stuffing chips, drinking tea and telling my wife that Lee Protheroe's bum isn't exactly the only reason for her being there.

I sit on the sea wall with a pair of binocualrs before slipping in at Half time for nothing.... thus saving money for beer tokens.

Always just to the right of the opposition goalkeeper. Park Lane end for or five steps up , sea wall end: try to get on the boards, if not just a step or two back. Usually with my daughter (12) who is picking up some great language from Mick the groundsman !! Away: behind the goal again if possible.

I always stand behind the goal we're shooting at. It wouldn't be the same if we couldn't shout at the keeper (didn't Aylesbury's #5 react well!) I used to stand on the corner by the temporary toilets before the stand was built and it was all grass there. That was fun, especially being surrounded by Dagenham fans when we beat the 3-1!

4 x 'default' Fosters, Mars Bars, note pad and pen (I collect Tanker names the same way trainspotters collect locomotive numbers).
The old Parker jacket with fur hood does the job this time of year. Finglerless gloves complete the look.

Just look around for strange looking fans walking around with a six foot email printout staring at every corner of the ground

I'm usually standing behind Merv, (I'm tall enough to look over his head!) Look for Merv and you'll find me hovering around usually muttering all sorts of stats to myself...
