Stayed in the city the night before, and we were bussed to the ground. We went down earlier in the day to have a look around though, right across the street from the station, great.

Awesome. The Germans seem to do most things better than we do. Height between rows was great, and the lower tiers were raised, rather than sitting below pitch level. No obligatory no mans land, just a fence keeping us apart, huge outdoor concourse area, great food and reasonably priced (3 Nurembergers on a roll…mmm…) and they got around the beer rule by selling us ridiculously weak beer that we were allowed to take to the seats! Germans are great.
Far too many stories from Nuremberg to put on here, it was one of the best away trips ever, everything about it was stunning. The most memorable moment of the trip though had to be around 5ish the night of the game, all the fans were out in town drinking, while all the locals were all just finishing work and going about their business. Loads were loving it though and joining in with us and having a laugh! Best of the lot, some old German woman who downed a full bottle of beer to the fantastically improvised “Swallow swallow swallow, Everton is the team to swallow! And there’s nobody better than Nana Arteta, she’s the best little German we know!”
