Im not having the 750,000 figure.
Ive had Mumford and Sons tickets booked for a while for last nigt at the Echo. It's not often me and the Mrs get out, so i wasnt going to let the parade put a dampner on it.
We got in to town about 3.30pm and hid away in places like Brass Monkey , Berry and Rye and Kazimier Gardens so I didn't have to see all the knobheads going past in their NEVER GIVE UP T-shirts.
Anyway after some food and a few drinks it got to 7pm and I thought the parade would have ended. So we headed towards the docks. As soon as I turned the corner near the Hilton there was a load if them singing, setting off flares and the fuckin parade bus was passing right in front of me, the whole fuckin team with the cup. My wife thought it was hilarious.
Instead of walking past that mob we cut through L1 to go past the law courts and all their fans were being sheparded up James Street (as the bus had already passed them).
I don't know what 750,000 looks like, but I've been in crownds of 70k, 80k before and it didn't even look that busy.
