I am hoping to go to City - West Ham away in a couple of weeks and I was just wandering, as an away fan, firstly would it be better to sit in the upper or lower tier at the Etihad? This would be my first time at City (in case you haven't already gathered).
Also I am going on the train with two mates, can we drink on the train? I don't understand this law properly, because I thought you weren't allowed but people do and no-one says anything. We're not going to get smashed, just a few beers to get us a bit jolly for the game.
Finally, is there anything else to do in or around Man City? We'll have open train tickets and so getting back isn't much of a problem. And any other tips in general?
I have edited my post and got rid of the concessions thing because I realised they aren't selling concession tickets for this match. The original first paragraph to my question was:
I am hoping to go to City -West Ham away in a couple of weeks and I see that they're selling slightly cheaper tickets to "concessions". What does that mean? I Googled it and it said businesses but then another website said for some reason it meant students. What are they?

In Manchester there is the National Football Museum (which had the Premier League trophy on display when I was there, nearby the Lowry Centre, and if you are looking for a decent pub, I'd recommend the Kings Arms in Salford (part owned by Paul Heaton).
Always go for the lower tier in my opinion. In the upper tier you can stand at the back and bash the metal but if you're near the front you feel closer to the action. It depends what you like, you get a slightly better view if you're a bit higher up.
Concessions = OAP's, students and under 16's usually.
