Right, as has been promised in the Forest meet thread, here is the peice that was missing (for good reasons) and can now finally reveal.

On the eve of the game, Saturday afternoon, while checking some emails concerning the club I made the serious error of giving away the place of next day's meet, my first name and my mobile number to someone who I haven't meet in person.

For those who don't know us, it's our expressed policy to check the new people out in neutral territory and if they pass they get the invitation for the meets.

In my defence:
1. I have emailing this person for something like 6 months.
2. We don't care much about the place we use for our matchday meets - it used to be quite nice, but has gone dowhill (as far as we are concerned) and so we go there by necessity as the alternatives would put a lot of people off.

Anyway I got a call later that afternoon, from an unknown number, that I didn't manage to answer which I did and the person from the other side of the line said something in lines of "we're from the Greek "M" supporters club, we know where you'll be tomorrow and we're coming to [CENSORED] you up".

My initial reaction was to give the [CENSORED] an evil laugh and hang up. Obviously many a scenario were playing in my mind, from the obvious: it's a hoax - if they really wanted to get us, why give us a warning?, to the more serious.

After many alternatives examined, from the peaceful to the gory we made the decision to turn up regardless with empty hands but full of determination.

Was over the moon to see almsot all faces turned up, some with people we haven't seen in years. Met at the local station and went in the place in 2s and 3s.

It was casual dresscode this time and thankfully the boys got the best spot for this kind of thing - just wanna say that they'd have to go through hell to get us. The funniest thing of all is we shared the bar with a couple and a friend of theirs who had ordered some Sunday grab, which would probably be the first to go if their promises were true.

In the end no [CENSORED] showed up, and us for us we had patrols outside the place and around the square as curiosity was taking over by now.

After another win for West Ham and another result for the Athens Hammers we left chanting "FUCK OFF "M"!!" to the great distress of the watching Man U fans who were smoking outside waiting for their match with Arsenal to kick off.

The other derby never kicked off, though
