Don't get drawn into any fun with Col Ewe fans today as we don't want any banning orders.

Just remember Southend United is for life, not just for ColEwe

Bound to be a few clowns on both sides of the equation, of course we all want to win but leave the aggression to supporting your team, banter is great, abuse or worse is stupid and often punished. I see your local plod are bringing their high spec camera down to the WHCS today, so they will have some lovely pics to prosecute any trouble makers!

Absolutely - being excited and "up for it" is one thing - having no consideration for others and acting like an idiot is another.


It's a day out for everyone - young and old alike - not just for those that consider themselves to be "true blues".

Well said. I prefer to think of our rivalry as a healthy local rivalry with no malice. Banter rather than fistycuffs.
Besides, it would be too unfair to take on rent-a-fans :hilarious:

In many ways I am surprised it wasn't a 12.00 kick off but weirdly the CUFC Police Tweets are encouraging fans to get there early and enjoy drinking and eating in the bars! Perhaps they are on a commision for how many Lager Louts they nick!!

Find it strange how they say that the cameras have been a deterrent so far this season; they've only just announced they've got them so how are they supposed to have been a deterrent if nobody knew about them.
The drop in problems at home games this year has been down to the fact that the police have now actually upped their game presence wise when required hence less happening, and not before time. Several times last season they seemed to have been caught with their trousers down, especially when those nice friendly people from Cambridge came to town.

Agreed......... It's just a game of football, not life or death. Remember we're all human beings and deserve respect no matter what football team you support.

A few of my friends are Col U fans and as delighted and ecstatic as I was for the win, I do feel for them as they are not that bad and indeed they are are really quite decent folk.
