Right, so this is maybe more like a FanQuestion than a FanPost.
I've been following the blues ever since Zola scored that goal against Manchester United back in 96-97. I live in Denmark which is only an hour and a half flight from London, but even so I have only ever watched one game live: the debut of Jesper Grønkjær at Highbury, which you might recognize as being a while ago. I watched it with my uncle and sadly we were seated in the home supporters end, so it put a natural dampener on our celebrations when we scored.
Anyway I'm turning 30 in May and as a surprise my wife has decided that we should take a weekend trip to London, and while she and the kid visit Harry Potter World, I should go and see Chelsea vs Everton on my birthday (yes my birthday in 2012 was on the THE night in May) in the last game of the season.
So now my question to you guys is: Which seats are the best? Initially my wife wanted to give me box seats, which is nice and all, a sweet thought from someone who doesn´t understand football, but I don't want eat food on a stick and behave like a normal person. I want to stand amid the Blues and scream my heart out, getting beer accidently spilled down my neck and throwing my hotdog in the air when we inevitably go 4-0 up courtesy of a record breaking Lampard goal.
I have tried doing some research on where to achieve this atmosphere. As far as I can understand it, the season ticket holders are placed in the Matthew Harding end, and as a neutral I can´t get tickets there, right? The away supporters are in the shed end, and naturally I won´t want to be placed near them.
My wife suggested the Upper east end, which should give me a great view of the pitch, but what about the atmosphere there? I really want to have a taste of a proper English football match with the local home support, and not a bunch of corporate visitors or similar.
Where should I get tickets to? (Money is not an issue)
Thanks in advance.
