Another massive over-reaction by the authorities. Much more serious incidents happen every week in Premier League games with players rubbing heads with each other, and mobs of players surrounding the referee every time a decision is made (in much the same way that Greasy, Abraham and others did throughout Sunday's game)

It's hardly surprising that some Blues supporters are convinced there is a conspiracy.

It's getting beyond ridiculous
We deserve our club back

You’re not wrong, Jim. On a positive note, at least they’ve charged that lot from down the road, and not just us (they would have, if they could).

The media have shown a clear vendetta against us, villafying us all for the actions of one idiot. Even describing us as the rough working class lot from the inner city areas, and calling the J21 collection a demo.

Do we actually have a media manager at Blues? The quick apology& lifetime ban announcement was good, but we should have got our story out there quickly & defended our position, then rebuffing scurrilous allegations. GMs silence after the match didn’t help, but I’m guessing he was told not to speak. A big mistake imo, as he is much more erudite & fair minded than the B6 manager.
