Re: Extra Ticket Security For Scum Away.

Slightly off topic but along the same lines I've just booked an open return on the train for £14, decent price I think. Just a heads up for anyone making travel arrangements!

Yes and lets not forget that our fans did exactly the same at their ground last season as well. Trashing the light fittings and kiosks in the Lower part of the ground. Hard to give them stick for their behavior when we were no better!!!

Re: Extra Ticket Security For Scum Away.

Not sure where you got that from Ren, there were only 8 arrests at PR last season, mostly fisticuffs outside the station, the only damage done inside their stadium were some damaged seats. 

I didn't go myself, but remember reading that there was hardly any problems, also have a friend who works there who said there was no major damage inside the stadium.

Think you're getting confused with when they came to us and pulled down the light fittings, plenty of videos around that they took of themselves doing it

Didn't realise that Til, there was only two of us so missed out on saving a couple of quid there!

Re: Extra Ticket Security For Scum Away.

I witnessed it with my own eyes Diane, so I know it happened. Lots of strip lights pulled down and everything that was laid out for our fans to use, sugar, spoons etc chucked all over the place. Posters pulled off the wall etc, so lets not pretend that we are whiter than white. Extra security called in the end, and as I say I expect that contributed to this extra security.

...and no I am not confused with what happened at our place. I did not witness that as I was in the Barclay, but I have seen the videos, yes.

No not really just slightly longer queues at the turnstiles but minimum disruption and once i waved my bus pass having been asked for ID i was in. Big Smile [:D]

Re: Extra Ticket Security For Scum Away.

Did not get asked for ID but they insisted on initially back of ticket. The stewards on outside of my entry turnstile were from Colchester United FC & commented about mixed messages on what exactly they should be doing. Not sure what the exercise achieved.
