What ever happens the police will come out and say they were right ,

They are scared Coventry fans will be like the Sheff Utd ones who caused havoc last August,

If there is no trouble they will say we stopped the hooligans coming,

If there is any trouble they will say it would have been worse if we had not restricted the numbers,

They have learnt nothing over the years,

Hooligans will travel whether they have a ticket or not,

I hope all the decent Coventry fans manage to get to the match whether they have a ticket or not,

Its about time the police stop treating the 98%/99% of good law abiding fans the same as the few hooligans.

I guess even if they have intelligence its not as simple as wait for the coaches to arrive or wait at the train station to arrest known trouble causers.  They have to be seen to be in the act.  Those with banning orders should turned away.

Its simple really.  Every football fan is given an id card with a barcode that officers and ground staff can scan. If someone has been naughty there id card gets blacklisted and is immediately identified  and arrested.  

Life is so simple sometimes. Lol

I'm surprised no-one's thought of an ID card idea before.

I guess its expensive to implement to those at the FA.  But its quite simple.  If you threw a smoke bomb Abdul but got away with it on the day.  The police might be able to identify you.  Then mark you as blacklisted.  Then the next time you go to a game to gain access through the gates and hand over your ticket etc the gates would not open for you and the police on the seen arrest you.  

Maybe if the fans can make enough noise something like this might get implemented.  

Like Wembley., instead of scanning tickets it scans id cards.

Im not sure crusty but if the FA can afford to give clubs billions or millions of pounds something lime this would be a snippet to them.  Just sick of death of being tarnished with the same brush.

ID cards were suggested back in the 80's and highly campaigned against by FSF as was.  It's being discussed again in relation to Millwall away travel after Wembley and as far as I know Leeds have them.  It will not end those that wish to cause a problem because as a Leeds fan has confirmed, like with everything, if you want to get around it you can......

If you're sick of being tarnished with the same brush then why should every single football fan in the country have to apply for and carry an ID card to every game just because of a few idiots. This thread has started because football fans are unable to spontaneously travel to a game they want to see. ID cards would make that situation ten times worse.

I have to agree and would oppose any such format at this moment in time as a member of the FSF council.
