    I echo the concerns on this thread about certain chants and behaviours but there is a strange whiff of nostalgic utopia coming across here where in reality it was far more physically dangerous to go to a match in the past.

    You've been abroad for too long.
    It's now about the same price as a bit of blow/puff would've been 20 years ago.
    No longer a treat.

    Some people genuinely aren’t able to go. Some people aren’t that dedicated and just can’t be arsed.
    It’s not that deep and you’re wasting time and happiness by having a go at each other.

    People are social animals and often deeply flawed. And everyone's been caged up for 18 months without an outlet. I think we may be heading back to the times similar to when the debate was whether football hooliganism was a football problem or a societal problem.
    I absolutely hate hearing distasteful songs on the terraces, but when you have young animals (not at all used disparagingly, just a scientific statement) in packs together then this sort of behaviour will happen, not helped because there's also the thing where football fans are continually being preached at by the media, players and middle classes (who have a strong puritanical dislike of the great unwashed) and there's the natural rebellion against authority.
    I think it's crazy that some drugs are legal when others aren't, with zero rational justification, and would personally legalize and tax all drugs whether alcohol or cocaine and treat any additions as a public health issue. The "war on drugs" is the wrong approach and has failed as prohibition always will.
    Football's problem is that it is the most popular "religion" in the world and everyone gravitates to it so it becomes the magnifying glass through which a lot of society's ills are exposed.

    A few seasons back, caught the train from Notts for the Forest game. 
    More fans than not were on the sniff, in full view of the many coppers also on board. 
    It's little different for some of our fans, from what I've seen on Away days. 
    Forget the movies where you see users chopping lines with a credit card and snorting through a bank note, it's far easier to take discreetly than that.

    It’s absolutely rife. People were in and out if the toilets at the pub when England played the Czech Republic during the Euros and that was a Wednesday night. 
    Got a couple of mates who are well into it and you’re probably looking at £100 for three grams. 
    No more expensive than smoking, really.
    Theres a MAJOR drugs issue in this country and football is just a reflection on that.

    From experience of being offered it in Manchester and Leeds (I always politely declined) and my housemate taking it I'm not sure it's as expensive as it used to be.

    I often think the ringside judges must have seen something I've missed at home, but that decision was shocking. 
    Lost at least 4 of the rounds, if not 5.

    Can’t remember the last time I heard “you’re going home in a Derby ambulance”. It was sung every game even as recently as 2008.

    I like the idea of segregated away areas and Derby did at least try to indicate this when selling tickets a few seasons ago. Now you can choose your exact seat you'd think it would happen naturally, but it doesn't. 
    Strangely, I support alcohol in seats as it would help people to pace their drinking instead of necking their pints in record time in the breaks. This is often what sends people over the top, imo.

    Cheap cocaine and drinking on an empty head. 
    I first noticed a resurgence this kind of behaviour (by coincidence) back in Mel's first season. It's slowly become more widespread. Before that time, away days used to be a great experience, very little aggro between our own fans. Derby fans even had a decent reputation with opposing fans. We have some proper a***holes following us now.

    Ground is pretty generic imo. Impressed by the size and there's not a bad view to be had. 
    But the event was amazing. As show it was great mate. Great backing for Joshua. Great atmosphere and a positive one. Not a knob head in sight

    Hearing Hearns interview, he must have Usyk signed up to a long term deal.
    Hard to see what Joshua can do different in a rematch, other than pack the pounds on and press from the off, and even then it might not be enough.

    I actually think that was the worst decision I have seen on a big fight card. Absolute robbery, the only think I thought was that Martinez was pretty much told before there was no way he was going to win the fight - such was the calm with which he took what was an absolute robbery of it all.

    He might as well have come in at 16st. He has weight, height, reach and power advantage and spent all night trying to box. 
    I wanted to see more jabs to the chest from AJ. The chest doesn't move. Pin Usyk. 
    He also should be looking to tie up more often. Use that weight. 
    And twice Usyk looked shaken and hid it behind behind unusually wild swings. But he never followed it up
    The fight went exactly as I thought for 7 rounds and I thought any minute now AJ is going to start throwing. Coincide pressure with Usyk feeling the extra weight last 5 rounds of a HW fight he should be piling it on  
    Instead he fought clean. He tried to jab the head and work from there. Terrible game plan.
    Usyk boxed great. Changes height, angles and distance at will. Controlled the fight. Responded well to being knocked by getting busy and buying himself time and control of the ring.

    Ruiz lived on 1 punch that scrambled AJ. Which he delivered after being put on his backside.
    Ruiz fought Arreola since and looked 2nd best often
