I know they have got alot of stick for using them smoke bombs ect, but to be fair to them, they travel to alot of games, pay to hire a mini bus, and create a great atmosphere for the players.

So I agree sometimes the smoke bombs are annoying and dangerous, but fair play to them for creating a brilliant atmosphere

They (the fans) probably do add extra atmosphere but using smoke bombs is an accident waiting to happen and I just don't want us tarnished with such incident thats all.

They have really improved the atmosphere away from home over this season and last season. Its a shame we cant make an atmosphere at BP but it is pretty difficult to do with 20 away fans.

I'll repeat what I said in the 'just back' thread : Finally, a message to the 'Teenage Cas(ual) Club': If you must insist on bringing flares/smoke bombs to 'enhance' the atmosphere be sensible with them. Let them off around you mates and not in the faces of little kids as you did when you all piled down the front of the stand and don't aim them at people. The second one landed very close to to Wrexham stewards. You should remember most people stewarding at this level are doing it because they are football fans too - not for the money. I hope it doesn't result any fines for the club.

Fair play for renting a mini bus and being organised though. Supporting your local club with your mates it's what it's all about. When done in the right way. The shenanigans at Wrexham General just don't reflect well on the club, Grimsby or Lincolnshire so try to think about that.

i wouldn't imagine  they post on here to be honest.  It is a common thing all up and down the country to be fair with away followings with 300+ fans. We never see it at BP  for the simple reason teams don't travel in numbers. Not that I am defending it but like you said if they are going to let of smoke bombs do it in the vicinity of themselves instead of throwing them at someone more vulnerable.

Also whilst on the topic of stewards why on earth do we insist on having so many on duty for away followings of less than 50? I don't know how much they get paid but it just seems stupid with them having that many when there is hardly ever a chance there will be trouble. Other than Lincoln, Wrexham, Halifax, Gateshead, Bristol Rovers and Chester we are not likely to see away followings of 100 so why do we have 100+ stewards on duty.

Just watched the video clip, fantastic amount of noise and support in general, kind of makes me want to start going to away games again to be honest so fair play to the lads. As for the smoke bombs obviously I would be against reckless/dangerous use but have to admit it does create atmosphere and a buzz

@Grimsby's Finest I take your point. As an older younger Mariner (I'm twenty eight) I feel a responsibility to just say lads - don't act like a complete bunch of mammaries. You can still have fun being normal like. I agree it happens everywhere but we can try and look after our own so to speak. With regard to smoke bombs, I've only heard the police propaganda, if there's is evidence out there to say they aren't dangerous etc, I'd love to hear it because if that's what the kids want to do and it is safe. Let them. I'd rather see the proof there first when young kids are inhaling it like yesterday - albeit it briefly.

RE stewards - maybe Towns problem is at this level it's difficult to predict away followings and it's better for the club to be safe than sorry.
