    Fighting in the stands at Watford game?

    Post  mottinghammer on Mon Sep 12, 2016 6:06 am

    Whats going on ladies n gents who go? Radio today saying that West Ham fans were fighting amongst themselves yesterday? Is this to do with the sitting/standing thing that  tbe club are making a huge issue about or our less than impressive start to the season which has us looking more likely to go down than challenge even for top half finish, let only top four!!!

    The standing is becoming an issue with security picking on certain areas.
    Don't know about fighting due to performance issue but security did go high in the 241 upper tier and I don't think that was for standing.

    We are in 243 upper and saw a Watford fan goading a West Ham fan.....It then all kicked off and a guy was ejected.  As for other areas down in 243 lower (if that's what its called) you had some fans constantly taunting the stewards, not even watching the game.  They had their arms outstretched challenging them at every opportunity to take some action.  They got what they deserved in my opinion! I would have been quite happy to see some security dive in and give them a few licks as well!  Utter morons! The vast majority of people are behaving themselves but it only takes a minority to spoil it for everyone else!  The quicker police get into the stadium the better! Oh and the quicker those I'm standing and there aint nothing you're going to do about it fans get banned the better the atmosphere will be because it's those so called 'die hard' fans that are creating the toxic atmosphere at the minute!

    Trouble again last night even though, according to the wireless, there was a large segregated area for the away support. If so how have they still managed to get to each other  ? Only going by reports I've heard but apparently seats were thrown by our fans and also a toilet seat at one point ??????? Who the fupp goes to the bog and thinks I'll take this with me I might need it later ????

    Lets not forget that this is an athletics arena.  The concourse goes all the way around, so presumably there is just another line of stewards there instead of a proper barrier.  Obviously by proper barrier, I mean it would have to be something "retractable/biodegradable" to put it back into athletics mode. Or rather in line with Sebastian Coe's stoopid legacy!

    As for the toilet seat incident, some peeps elsewhere have suggested that this is an old photo, regurgitated from elsewhere.

    Perhaps he took the no standing literally and bought the bog seat for when he went to the lav.

    I wish our owners would stop banging on about how many people we can get in it and pay whatever it takes to keep fans apart.
