Many fans like to dress up for their final away day of a season.
I’ll never forget one such match a few years back when a drunken Cov City supporter dressed as Elvis got arrested and as he was being led away he shouted out,” Elvis has just left the building.” I thought it was hilarious and even the coppers were laughing ! Brilliant.
