    We are not throwing smoke bombs or attacking away fans. Like many other we just want to watch football with a bit of atmosphere. The game is rarely good enough to just sit and watch so for me a bit of a singsong and banter makes the day that more special.
    Why not? Where's the passion

    There were a couple of West stand chavs fighting each other outside, they left like me just before the whistle, chaved up, they looked around 18......

    Spot on, Dan and I discussed this very point last night before the game. I believe he will be contacting the club on this to suggest a couple of things to remedy the fact that, even though the younger generation are very social media aware, not that I'm pointing the finger at them as it could have been anyone, the posts made will be missed by quite a few.
    I'm sure TBV will be offering to assist the club in preventing further occurrences.
    We kicked around a few ideas and we'll see what comes out of it.
    I think we all want to prevent the club getting into more trouble but at the same time I have no wish to see a young lad, potentially, tarnish the rest of his life for something like this in a moment of pointless bravado or stupidity.
    First game under the Friday night lights at the Hall, 25/3/66 England Amateurs 3, Scotland Amateurs 3.

    First ride on the Shrimpers rollercoaster, Friday, 8/4/66, Shrimpers 5, Gills 2 Eddie Firmani hat trick

    Not to mention they can pay any FA fine off with their pocket money.

    W Block supporters then say that if they weren't allowed in there Roots Hall would be a library and the players would pretty much down tools.

    Then people start banging about flares! They aren't flares it's smoke bombs.

    Then we get some people who never post supporting w block saying everyone else is a ******.

    Here's an idea guys, give the ****** signs a rest, stop trying to get at the away fans. And don't be a ****ing dicks keep bringing smoke bombs in because it's going to cost our club and it's only you guys that will suffer!

    By all means get tanked up have a bit of 'bantz' with the away fans and sing up! It's all about being that 12th man and giving the team that extra boost because we bloody need it at the moment!
    spot on ricey

    Re their age- bit of a contradiction above

    Another poster has already said that they saw who did it and pointed it out to a steward (I dont know his name, but the main guy for W who interacts with the fans and doesn't appear to take any crap (not that i have ever spoken to him), its just an impression.

    you might want to contact said poster for more details before speaking to the club re why the lad wasn't thrown out. That would have sent out a message

    As mine and Cockle43's post could easily be missed by non-zoners, we've put up a post on the TBV website which details what I've already posted on this thread a little more, and also includes a link to Cockle43's excellent post regarding the laws and repercussions. Hopefully this will reach a far wider target audience than just SZ, and the message will go across.

    Stewards did check the hands of fellow fans in that area (their hands would sometimes have a blue mark on them if they done it), and they obviously couldn't find anything. Whilst a fan flagging it up to another steward is all well and good, they can't go purely on a witness statement for something like that - that's actually quite a big accusation without CCTV evidence when you think of it, which could lead to severe repercussions for someone if they got it wrong and ejected/accused someone of something they didn't do. What they could do, is they can take that witness statement and review the CCTV - a witness statement is a good start, but if you can back it up with evidence from CCTV that's something far stronger to go on. I would think that the club have done this outside of the game, so whilst something wasn't physically done on the day, I'm fairly sure the club are actively working on reviewing the CCTV of the incidents for both home and away fans.

    Playing devils advocate here.

    We have employed and stuck by numerous players that have been in trouble for real crimes. (ie) against others and ones that if guilty offer some real jail time.

    Why is a poxy bit of blue smoke such a big drama that we fill the need to act like we are hunting some kind of serial rapist?

    I'm not justifying it, but I was stood about 4 or 5 rows back and didn't bat an eyelid. I'm still alive to tell the tale and I don't see anyone harping on about the smoke bomb that Gillingham set off just a few minutes prior.

    On the continent they literally have hundreds of actual flares which could cause a fire and still no one's remotely bothered , yet here in happy clap land a spotty youth fires up a smoke bomb and we have jack the ripper in our midst.

    Here is an idea, wind your neck in or maybe wind your neck out on a match day, and let the police or stewards do there job instead of playing Hercule Poirot

    This.

    Too many keyboard warriors, never see them front anyone directly. When someone posts "idiot two rows in front kept shouting abuse...", there's two people who look like idiots...
