    Fans banned over assault at Cardiff - Man Utd game

    Here you go, three chavvies banned after the Man Utd home game.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-48691617

    No doubt it's already up on the other board, where a percentage of them will be walking around with big diamond cutter hard-ons at the thought of some 'action' at our stadium.

    Trying to do the stewards job, and moreso, doesn't seem worth it anymore I guess.

    Re: Fans banned over assault at Cardiff - Man Utd game

    Lee Thomas, 34, Gareth Walters, 34, and Royston Davies, 47, admitted assaulting a 22-year-old Manchester United fan with his brother in a stand for home fans at the Cardiff City stadium.

    It happened when the pair "were unable to contain their emotions" during last December's game which ended 1-5.

    The three men were sentenced before Cardiff magistrates on Friday.

    The victim was assaulted while stewards were escorting him and his 16-year-old brother from the stand.
    3 grown men doing that to a young lad and a kid, how much of an arse hole do you have to be to do that. Why wasn't anyone standing up for them? Just because they support a different team, it's pathetic.

    Don't think Stewards are supposed to assault people are they?

    I take it you didn’t read all the report ?

    Stewards and the club need to be shit hot on these things. It's wrong to assault people because of this but I'm not surprised and nor should the club have been.

    I'm sure I saw one guy wearing red from a distance as he was chased down the steps. Why wouldn't he have been challenged prior to taking his seat? Then later on I definitely heard one guy singing a united song.

    For their own safety they shouldn't be there. No excuse to hit them but most of us know the score when it comes to football.

    People that don't should be protected by being refused entry or when identified, swiftly removed.

    Thing is, how are the stewards meant to know? They must have had tickets in the home end because you have to show your tickets about a thousand times before you get to your seat in the Canton these days, so short of asking them to name 5 City players, they won't know anybody's an away fan until something like this happens.

    Exactly my thoughts when I saw the ages.

    Maybe not initially but I'm sure one of the United fans was wearing something united branded, definitely saw a guy in something red getting chased down the steps opposite. May have been a rebrand fan.

    But some behind us were singing united songs, you could hear some people shouting at them for a while before it started to get quite bad and this one lad decided himself to go. No stewards around.

    It's hard in general I'd agree, particularly if tickets have been bought from the Cardiff area.

    I do quite like the test option though, little touch screen above where you scan your ST. Been on a few opposition forums for a browse before and they sometimes pop up with a random question about the club when searching.

    Anyone reaching for their phones at this point gets an immediate refusal.

    Just like Racism in football is still rife in many eastern European countries (and here to an extent),we condemn it as people still living in the dark ages.
    Just as Sectarianism is still rife in Scottish football and we condemn it as people still living in the dark ages, we still have this tribal stigma in football both in the UK and all over the world where if a supporter of the opposition has the audacity to knowingly or unwittingly go into the home end, or opposing end, they risk a good kicking from the “lads” that love to hide and be hard men in big crowds.
    The same guys who’d probably shit yellow without a belly full of ale and the security of a big crowd.
    Still. We all know it’s the unwritten rule in the game and those who risk it are “asking for trouble” We are all still living in the dark ages, when it comes to football.

    Interesting idea but difficult to imagine how the touchscreen could work in practice. Older gents hunting for their readers at 2.54pm and holding up the queue. Plus, there can't be many things more off-putting to new fans than being publicly denied entry for ignorance

    I know was just a bit of fun, the scenes though.

    To be fair we aren't going to have any issues this season anyway.

    They should have been removed safely from the ground without the chance of violence from home fans. Buses should have been parked up outside all home ends in readiness of such a situation, said fans put on these buses safely and taken non stop immediately to Manchester City centre, let off the buses with a cheery goodbye by those policing the buses. Nobody hurt, nobody abused and fans returned home safe & sound.

    Sadly, you're right. I wonder if the same people who get so agitated about having an away fan sat so close to them would behave the same way at a rugby game? I don't understand why, but I'm pretty sure they wouldn't, yet it's come to be considered the norm at football.

    Personally, I don’t mind away fans and would quite like to sit and have a laugh with them. A plastic Utd or pool fan from Ely or Merthyr is another matter completely.....

    Re: Fans banned over assault at Cardiff - Man Utd game

    You have to ask how did they purchase tickets for the home end and then I would question the CPS so they got slapped if I was the judge i would have thrown it out of court asking them what did you expect....Fecking society's gone soft.

    Re: Fans banned over assault at Cardiff - Man Utd game

    Even when viewing this thread through the lens of it being at an arch scarfer's forum, some of the contributions are shocking and, quite frankly, disgraceful.

    It's evident that a significant hardcore yearn for the day when football games are played in a completely sterile environment devoid of noise and where any flicker of emotion is frowned upon. I'm positive that the highlight of their matchday experience is applauding visitors as they disembark their coaches.

    Sticking the head or welly into visiting supporters at every opportunity is a tradition that's almost been lost. Those individuals - I refuse to acknowledge them as real fans - who came to those Man Utd supporters' aid should be identified and banned.

    So you would just let 3 grown men away with assaulting kids just because they bought a football ticket?

    SOCIETY GONE SOFT YOU CAN'T EVEN REPEATEDLY PUNCH SOMEONE FOR SUPPORTING A DIFFERENT FOOTBALL TEAM ANYMORE!!!!!111!!!

    You have forgotten that you are not allowed to follow rugby and football so this would never happen 😄👍

    Hasn't there been a few instances lately where opposing fans have been attacked by Wales fans at the Millennium during International games? I seem to remember one where a few women were attacked by some knuckle draggers.

    Maybe so but did the tickets go out to the public or was it our own fans selling spares.
