For felicitations sake are you still wobbling on about Hillsborough.

Much of the over the top policing in the miners strike was done by police from other forces drafted in and earning a fortune in overtime (a mate of mine got a house deposit together courtesy of Scargill) who were bored living away from home for long periods and just fancied getting stuck in

Anything else you want to blame the police for?

It was an unimportant football friendly FFS

Boring old fart



The very definition of pot - kettle - black!! 😂

Or.....Play it behind closed doors, film it. Highlights a.s.o.p. Both clubs get what they need.

BBC NEWS just said that all Police Forces have to send officers to cope with security demands of Trump's visit. Maybe a Friday evening was also too much for a town centre venue?

Trump is blamed for most things including the weather, but Towns cancellation is stretching things a bit

I can understand this, probably a bit like a coronation in London and other forces having to send officers there but, whilst South Yorks or even Humberside officers are looking after trump is the general policing in my area compromised at all. If the Chief Constable says no, then he's got too many officers anyhow, if he says yes does it become a free for all for the local law breakers to have a field day. Perhaps someone like Burnsey (radio Humberside) could ask the question. Unless of course we are all go to get a reduction in the the police section of our rates.

How long is Trump coming here for? He arrives on 13 July. Friendly v Rotherham was scheduled for 20th?


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

As usual Barra' you speak an inconvenient truth. Yes, The Guardian says he is here in Britain from Thursday to Sunday so that excuse does not apply. As you were.
Would it be fake news to suggest that the clubs could not agree sharing police costs? I'll let it lie now.
