Another football match. My second within the space of a week. There were only 20,000 at this one. We stood amongst the home support. The seats had been removed for just this section. To maintain a tradition perhaps. There were two large drums next to us, which were constantly beat upon by two sweating drummers. At the front were four men with megaphones who initiated songs and chanting. During one chant, the people sat down. A young man close by motioned to me to do the same so I did. Then we stood up and chanted.

I had joined in.
