I think most of us on The Fishy will agree that we should be very careful in what we say on here at the present time given the sensitivity and importance of the matter, don't give the media any chance of turning the tables on us after the brilliant job the Trust has done in bringing it to their attention.

Don't worry. A thorough investigation has taken place down here in Stevenage....

Some OB came into the old town spoons and told the bar staff "they had heard" there were groups of Town roaming about looking for trouble.
We were stood right next to them and they hadn't realised we were Town until we guffawed at them.

Misleading information tweeted by Derbyshire Police is taken as gospel by Hertfordshire Police and it creates the environment that many experienced at Stevenage on Saturday.

Things like this will snowball from nothing - which again underlines the important job the Trust is doing in highlighting this. We need to nip this in the bud before it becomes something our whole club is tarred with.

Not that I would wish damage on any other club and its fans, but Stevenage themselves may realise that just one intense period of negative media could leave them with a reputation that's hard to shift, irrespective of their investigation's findings.

Quoted from lukeo
I was stood on the row below the two lads and actually the stewards where very polite and asked them nicely to not stand on the chair and said they're welcome to stand normally in front of it and said thank you as they walked off.


I am sure they were nice, however 2 stewards required to tell two young boys to sit down was OTT IMO

The Comet is never going to print anything derogatory about Stevenage as the club spend a fair bit on advertising and the Comet would be worried about getting banned so that explains the defensive report.

I missed a call from a Comet reporter this morning as I was going into a meeting, shame I would have put him straight about all the mad women at Chesterfield trying to slash the locals throats with their bra wires. The only real thing I saw during the game was the Chesterfield fan with the smoke bomb at 1 - 2.

The intel does not warrant the level of behavior from the stewards, but I guess that Stevenage see that as a get out of jail free card..

The most worrying aspect is there was no disorder at Chesterfield, that was debunked on Twitter! Yet this newspaper is now propagating the lie which is used to criminalise and dehumanise all football fans.

No statement from our club really thought they may come out in support of the fans
