Tbd there were also a few bottles and a ballboys/stewards plastic seat chucked on. No problem with us being charged.

I have got a problem with them not being charged for the flares they let off.
Ffs just be consistent

Okay, so the flares that went off - that was them bringing them into OUR stadium. Whose responsibility is it to ensure people are properly searched? I think it's ours.
You can't properly search everyone.
That's a ridiculous cop out.
Are you seriously saying we can throw flares at every away game and never be at fault?

Maybe they'll round all the punishments into 1 this season, else everyone could get confused, say 20 point deduction, massive fine and 5 games behind closed doors. Seems we're in trouble for this, that and the other, but all largely trivial as far as I'm concerned.

Yes there's a safety matter which any club needs to deal with but do we charge the Customs service when illegal goods are brought into the country? No we deal with the smugglers.

If you can show that a club has the measures in place, as approved by the police and rules governing stadium safety, then why should they be charged?

NO... The rule you referenced above says each club shall "ensure that ITS supporters...."

So it is Aston Villa's responsibility... under rule 20a

Blues are responsible for THEIR supporters.

No - it's just that there is this club in the Midlands that for whatever reason just cannot behave themselves on & off the pitch - time to bring the 'Ommer' down on their heads - ala Maxwells Silver hammer stylee .....

Deep sigh ......

You say that but I've got a mate who's a spurs season ticket holder. He told me you can't get anything into Wembley. They questioned him over his inhaler. It can be done, just needs organisation and good/responsible staff.

I agree.

That’s because it’s Wembley and they’re going to have very good security.



Watch that from when they played at White Hart Lane..

You'll get used to it Mr. Monk. It becomes water off a ducks back. KRO.
