Sheffield United trouble seems the obvious reason why.

Bradford like Grimsby has nice bits and horrible bits. Having lived in a BD postcode for a few years I know tonnes of great places round there. Bradford fans are generally sound as well - much more palatable than Leeds fans.


Agreed.

This is true - I live 6 miles from Bradford and I haven't been there in about 3 years, complete dump


That’s classic Leeds that . Ever been to Gipton , Seacroft , Harehills , Morley , Burmantofts, Wortley , Armley ?

Can’t see anything elsewhere but following on from the Bradford kickoff time being changed, I’ve just heard on RH that the game tomorrow is a noon kick off. WTF?!?

Probably rules me out to be honest but I have to ask why the charge?

I’m assuming it’s been given this slot on police instructions?

Do they seriously think it’ll be that much of a risk to start at the usual 3-00 PM?


Midday KO was decided weeks ago.
Pretty obvious after previous issues.

Has there been trouble with Donny in the past? I suppose this is based on the Sheffield United game.

You are Nick Dale and I claim my £100.

Is anyone at BP or Humberside Police likely to look at these “previous issues” truthfully? There was one incident which was pretty much unprecedented - the telegraph made a point about how it was the worst incident seen since Leeds came in the early 80s - and 30 people were banned as a result & received (suspended) prison sentences.

A few years earlier we played Sheffield Wednesday in near identical circumstances, at 3pm on a sunny Saturday in mid-July, and absolutely nothing happened. Why is that not used as a reference point by which games should be judged & managed?

I’m sick & tired of ALL fans being treated like untrustworthy liabilities when we all know that’s not the case. Say what you like about “it’s just moving kick off 2 hours” but that’s happened how many times in the last 4,5 years? Mansfield twice a season, Lincoln twice a season, Doncaster, scunny, Bradford, even Donny in a friendly moved to midday now ffs. All-ticket matches and reduced allocations every other week, pushed around by jumped up police and assaulted by stewards. It’s the thin end of the wedge accepting this treatment and it’s disgusting there’s nobody prepared to stand up and speak out on behalf of fans.

Boils my urine.

We did play Sheffield wed and their was plenty of aggro before the game and some during the game outside bp, your comment is simply untrue not having a go just stating facts

The question asked was around the timing of the fixture been moved.
The reason why is more than likely police advice after the Sheffield Utd fiasco.
If you think fans are even considered in this age of football or their options taken on board regarding KO times  you are sorely mistaken.
Just look at the farcial fa cup KO time at Palace last season denying fans rail travel as one example.
Unfortunately in this country we have no history of fan protests which pressurises the authorities to change this.
Unlike Germany.

To use your one example, surely the Palace kickoff time was decided by the game being on TV

Had it been a police decision surely it would have been an early start to deter the travelling fans any real chance of causing any pre-match trouble

Funny how we had so many fans going there, with our so-called “reputation” and the Met Police were fine with the game start time, yet today with just a fraction of that crowd, people had to be in the ground on a Saturday morning to see this game, with nothing at all at stake, kick off at noon. 🙄
