Putting aside the liking/loathing of the teams, which places were harder to visit, and who travelled best.......

Scum or Citeh
Everton or Liverpool
Birmingham, Villa, or Wolves
Leicester or Derby
Newcastle, Sunderland or Middlesbrough
Coventry or West Bromwich
Chelsea or West Ham
Arsenal or Tottenham
Millwall, QPR or Palace
Wednesday or Blunts
Bradford or Huddersfield
Cardiff or Swansea
Wigan or Burnley
Portsmouth or Plymouth
Oldham or Blackburn
Barnsley, Doncaster or Rotherham
Luton or Watford
Forest or County
Stoke or Port Vale
Grimsby, Hull, Scunthorpe or Lincoln
Hearts or Hibs
Rangers or Celtic
Motherwell or Aberdeen
Bristol City or Rovers

Be interesting to see how teams have faired through the decades. And any places where you came unstuck where you wouldn't expect to.

Interesting that 2 guys who were definitely there have vastly different views and most of your choices are completely different.

Quality responses ☺☺

like I said its all down to personal experience late 70s and early 80s were a nightmare at some places , I travelled on the kippax early 80s which was well organised and very big numbers , times on the trains and 4 four of us in a car was hairy at times , decent post this for a change on here and brings back happy memories as well as the sweats lol .
Scum or Citeh - Scum. Though got hoofed out of Maine Road during the 2-1 win there and had a few chasers on me
Everton or Liverpool - Everton
Birmingham, Villa, or Wolves - All but Birmingham were the nastiest, Villa game, Wolves more sneaky
Leicester or Derby - No 'exposure'
Newcastle, Sunderland or Middlesbrough - Boro. Once also bumped into their main men at Barnsley one year, they gave a few of us a walk, laughing at our faces as we turned a corner right slap bang into them all. Fair play
Coventry or West Bromwich - Coventry
Chelsea or West Ham - Chelsea. Though had a beating off the cowardly ones too. Chelsea always had numbers, West Ham were more choosy
Arsenal or Tottenham - Spurs. Though Arsenal had several results against them and still do
Millwall, QPR or Palace - QPR for travel, Wall for horror-show and Palace for getting me nicked there. Crown Court the lot...
Wednesday or Blunts - Blunts
Bradford or Huddersfield - Bradford
Cardiff or Swansea - Cardiff
Wigan or Burnley - No idea
Portsmouth or Plymouth - Portsmouth. Though again, got chased silly at Plymouth in 1984 I think
Oldham or Blackburn - Neither
Barnsley, Doncaster or Rotherham - Barnsley, every time
Luton or Watford - Luton
Forest or County - Forest
Stoke or Port Vale - only came across Port Vale, who were up for stuff
Grimsby, Hull, Scunthorpe or Lincoln - Grimsby. Heard lots about Lincoln but not seen them
Hearts or Hibs - Hibs
Rangers or Celtic - Rangers. Though never seen the green and white hordes of shite up close
Motherwell or Aberdeen - Aberdeen. A few used to come to ER in the 80's, used to meet in Harlequins
Bristol City or Rovers - City

Everton or Liverpool - liverpool although had a rough one at godson early 70's
Birmingham, Villa, or Wolves - wolves
Leicester or Derby - Leicester
Newcastle, Sunderland or Middlesbrough - Boro, nowt to report about other 2
Coventry or West Bromwich - Coventry got beat up when i was 16 at their ground
Chelsea or West Ham - west ham, chelsea were nothing Imho
Arsenal or Tottenham - Spurs always
Millwall, QPR or Palace - thought qpr were most game
Wednesday or Blunts - neither
Bradford or Huddersfield - neither
Cardiff or Swansea - neither
Wigan or Burnley - Neither
Portsmouth or Plymouth - Portsmouth
Oldham or Blackburn - Neither
Barnsley, Doncaster or Rotherham - neither
Luton or Watford - Luton, neither

Grimsby, Hull, Scunthorpe or Lincoln - grimsby but nowt much

All my assumptions are based on my experiences not hearsay, some lads will have seen different things at different places, I once got attacked by a mob of chesterfield on motorway but they came unstuck when the numbers were more even, I also base most of it on away travels , at ER man utd, pompey and spurs were always the most game, away it would be man city, west ham and top of the list spurs every time.

Every team has a group of lads that could hold their own in small numbers that are equal either side, so no shame in taking a slap at any ground in those circumstances.
