Quoted from Les Brechin
I can understand why so many pay on the gate as Coventry sell their away tickets via Ticketmaster for some reason, and we all know how exorbitant their admin/postage fees are.


Another example of someone else's interests over-riding those of the fans. All that matters is that someone makes a profit.

Astute not strictly true is it...Cov have caused plenty of issues over the years so not sure where you have been.

Hopefully they won't today.

Well let's just hope it all goes well, without incident and we all enjoy it. The vast majority of fans, that's all they want.

It's not the vast majority of fans that usually get their way though is it, unfortunately.

Quoted from Lincspoacher
It is up to the club to share what has happened. I know the reasons but can't say as it's been shared by family member and not been announced by the club for a reason.

If it was the police, don't you think GTFC would have already come out and said that? Yes.

It's not the police at all, it's down to the club and the SAG had no choice.


All that we know so far comes from the Coventry Telegraph which directly quotes Humberside Police - see quote below. Seems to say information came from all 3 parties. In fact it explicitly says that the decision was taken by the local authority chair of the SAG. So it seems either Insp Snowden has it wrong or your source is wrong in that it's down to the club.

'Inspector Scott Snowden, from Humberside Police’s Command Support Unit, said: “Following a meeting of the emergency safety advisory group yesterday where information was considered from the local authority, representatives of Grimsby Town Football Club and police, a decision was taken by the local authority chair of the group to withdraw the sale of tickets available to visiting away fans.

“The safety of those attending this sporting event is a priority and a key factor in arriving at this decision.'

SAG can't make decisions only recommendations but all tend to follow these for obvious reasons.

It will come out in the end, I can say no more.

Typically there's nothing on the club site about this. 'Latest News' items are ads for an app and betting. A day after someone on a fan site made a post about it, there's nothing from GTFC.

Then it seems the SLO didn't even get informed of the meeting.

Shambolic communications as usual. It's time something changed within GTFC.

Quoted from Grim74
What a joke I doubt they would of sold 1800 anyway was even mentioned on there own forum. so by doing this we now have a potential risk of crowd disorder in the home stand.. what a bunch of clowns.

hope the residents on Harrington street have been briefed to keep their doors locked regarding the Coventry fans... seem to remember them the last time just letting themselves in whilst running scared😂


You think this is funny? No wonder views about football fans being hooligans persist.

So you're saying Snowdon got it wrong in his statement? He explicitly said the chair of SAG made a decision.

Maybe he went to the same school of PR as the club's representative.

Over the years but not for a long time. Mainly when we have been started on. But yes we do have a few idiots. All clubs do. The vast majority of us want nothing to do with it these days.

Don't believe a word from the Telegraph. They get half of their stories from us as we know more than them.
