I'd like to be a fly on the wall when the police read that :-D

Well done SAFC!!!

Nice to see a club with swingers for a change.

Come March, we will still be getting bent over... :blue:

Indeed well done to both clubs. No chance of us and Rovers doing the same.

07-01-2014, 07:57 PM
That was awesome until the last bit where they said about removing the T&Cs. Not that I think they shouldn't. It just came across as a little petty.

Still good on them for standing up to what seems like a load of rollox.

Well done them.

Now us and Rovers need to do something similar re the ridiculous travel arrangements (at least).

"and will expect Northumbria Police to police these games, especially given the considerable costs both clubs incur for such special police services."

I can't help but feel that Northumbria Police's response to this will be to provide some even more "special police services" at even greater cost to the clubs. Submarines patrolling the Tyne and Wear perhaps.

A nice change. Two clubs telling plod to get stuffed.

It does appear that most of the other clubs who have these kind of travel conditions forced on them (Hull and Huddersfield spring to mind) push back against them whilst Burnley seem happy for the fans to be treated like 4,000 hooligans.

"Both clubs have evidence in the form of considerable written correspondence between Northumbria Police, the Premier League and the clubs which contradicts their statement of yesterday."

The filth lying? I don't believe it.

'Submarines patrolling the Tyne and Wear perhaps'

Made me laugh that.

Don't worry though, little old Burnley just comply with everything we're told to do.

Good. **** the police.

N.W.A song playing in my head just now. Record scratching sound and everything!

That bloke clouting that horse never did them any favours shame that a few spoil it & make things awkward.

Somebody's thumped Judas ?
This gets better and better.

Aye, they hit horses up here unlike in Blackburn where they love them --or is it lust for them?

08-01-2014, 01:50 PM
I would be interested to know what percentage of fans from both Burnley and Venky's feel that the coach only system is needed ? from my own research(just asking people i know who support either) it seems a higher % of Venky's feel its necessary whereas most Burnley fans said they prefer the normal systems :/

It?s not as though if you abandon the enforced coaches then you lose that option altogether. Anyone who wants to go on the coach with a police escort still could.

Can?t see our club saying one word to the police though. I think this is one issue where they let the fans down quite a bit.
