    Contrary to most on here, I've had no problems with the policing at any game. In fact, they saved me from the mother of all kickings at the Albion cup tie a couple of seasons ago, so kudos to them!

    Fantastic cause and one that should be backed by all fans who attend games.

    Football legislation is unbelievably draconian and needs reform urgently.

    Didn't someone say the other day on one of the Doncaster game Threads that there was a danger of a Section 27 scenario happening if you were seen in certain pubs wearing Wolves colours?

    Watching football ws made a crime under the bitch Thatcher.

    football at the time was seen as working class, as her sole objectove was to screw the working class, she did everything to she could to destroy it.

    It has still not recovered from the tory agression.

    First time I've heard Thatcher being blamed for anything football related Glasgow. Hate the bitch for what she did to the Yorkshire mining industry so I'll bow to your interpretation if it gives me another reason to hate her.

    Yes I was a school kid in the early 70's.

    Have to say, we had no problems with the police today.
    In the pubs from 10.30, followed about but no hassle or restrictions. Seemed quite friendly.

    People that have problems with the police, in my experience, are those that are determined to push the boundaries of common decency as much as possible and are then suprised when action is taken against them. Never had a problem with policing at football, nor do I expect to.

    And people who make comments like this have clearly never been unlucky enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Either that or they refuse to open their eyes.

    You're right. I've never allowed myself get into a situation where I am "at the wrong place at the wrong time" therefore there's never been a problem. Obviously there are occassions where people do wind up in amongst a bad crowd and things escalate, however a bit of common sense generally stops you getting into that situation in the first place.

    Thank you for your advice.

    Are you honestly trying to say the police will only ever arrest you or drag you out the ground for doing something OTT.

    Common sense has naff all to do with it. Some of the police forces in this country love nothing more than arresting a football fan for the most minor of incidents.

    I don't think you could have been more patronising if you had tried. 'Wrong place at the wrong time' can happen to anyone, no matter how much common sense they have or how educated they are.
