Ah it was Woo. Seriously though, good to read a a story that hasn't hidden things and not lambasted or condoned what happened on Saturday.

Question is, was the incident the catalyst for actually getting out a well written article.

It absolutely was imo.
As are the countless other pieces that are all over mainstream media now...... with the large majority of them criticising the board as the ultimate root cause of all of these problems.

If I were in this week's meeting with the board and LLDC etc when Sullivan chirped up about extra policing......I would have said.... "it appears Mr Sullivan that yourself and your deputies are the central focus of this ire and anger so perhaps for the common good you should consider staying away from the final home games".

But of course, what does Sullivan know about the "common good"?


I think so also. A wave can be formed from a tiny ripple.

Well this media condemnation of the fans doesn't seem to be going quite to plan.

Sullivan must be wishing a brick had hit him.

Out of all the demos last Saturday this one was the most significant imho.... whufc_crest whufc_crest whufc_crest


Don't get that argument at all tbh. Protest by all means, but do it in a legal manner. The demo in front of the directors box, whilst not everyone's cup of tea, was a perfectly legitimate expression of discontent. Running onto the pitch and stopping the game, irrespective of whether it affected the result or not, was both irresponsible and downright stupid. And to the uninitiated would not have been seen as a protest against the board but against the team on the pitch.

What was the bloke hoping to actually achieve ? The overall dissatisfaction with the board, which in a nutshell is what the protests are about, was very apparent without some numpty making a solo protest. Maybe he wanted a bit of notoriety. The club he supports will probably face a hefty fne because of his, and the others who went onto the pitch, actions. The next game may have to be played behind closed doors, or with part of the ground closed. Will he reimburse those fans who will be deprived of seeing their team play a match they have already paid for ?

FFS this was no spotty kid just out of scholl. He appears to be someone in his 60's or 70's who should know there are better ways of making a point. The bloke who made the banner about creating a storm and being pissed off when it rains had it bang to rights imo. The blokes who ran onto the pitch in my book are simply attention seekers.

No doubt, as we live in a free country, there will probably be an appeal for people to pay his fine. People will probably contribute, as is their right. But FFS, I think some people need to grow up.

The most telling line of that particularly good piece is this one imo.

Had the team built on the promise of the last season at Upton Park, when Slaven Bilic guided them to seventh place in the Premier League, there would have been no scenes like those witnessed last Saturday.

Yeah. Whilst Sullivan and co might be able to manipulate certain fan sites and blogs into demonising the discontented, I think some in the wider media can see the bigger picture.

So far they've hit back with the back-page headliner of a "price freeze on season tickets".
...... and they're still involved in an expensive legal battle because they can't have their 66000 seats.

I didn't realise Barnsley bring so many away fans?
