  1. More about the FC United game please. I loved it despite being in the Barrow supporters end. The staff were really nice, there was a massive crowd (bigger than the Barrow or Witton Albion matches I've been to)and it was nice to see people there with their children. It all got a bit nasty when FC scored and Barrow fans started throwing smoke bombs, swearing at their own players and generally making prats of themselves.
    Congratulations to FC United and well done to young mitherer who was an excellent Ball Boy.
