Is it balderdash. It is just blatantly clear the club are going to end up getting fined or threatened into unnecessarily banning these fools for what are generally pretty half arsed forays onto the pitch.


If the club get fined or pay for damage, then we ALL pay. The money will come out of club funds which all who spend money at the club, tickets, merchandise, etc. will have contributed to.

Just because something is illegal doesn’t really mean it’s needs the Whitehouse brigade to get all high and mighty on here…

Driving like a lunatic is dangerous, speeding and reckless over taking is illegal but happens on my way to work every morning…that can kill people…running on a pitch, as daft as it may seem, isn’t going to kill anyone…


I'm sorry but that is total bo**ox! At  what point do you decide  that a crime is more  serious than another and more to the point who are you to judge? Laws are brought in to provide a stable social platform for society to function. Burglary, littering and racial abuse don't kill people but the laws against these should be enforced and rightly so.

I don’t think it’s unreasonable of the club to point out the ramifications of pitch invasions or damage caused, such as the financial costs of replacing the stanchions at Altrincham.

We might have the best away following in the National League and the miscreants might be in the minority but there’s no point in creating costs or difficulties for the club.

Well, the crime punishment in fines, prison time etc reflects how serious a crime is. If you encroach on to the playing area you can get a ban up to 10 years (worst case), murdering someone is up to whole life term.

Police, CPS and judges may be quite lenient when comes to a pitch invasion, not likely when it comes to premeditated murder on the other hand.

Exactly OC. Virtually nobody is making a moral judgement about it merely saying people should stop as the club have twice requested because otherwise there will be a negative impact on the club.

At the end of the day we will be punished as the club have stated, fact. Therefore we need to stop doing it. There really shouldn’t be a debate as it is out of our and the clubs control.

Perhaps we should start losing a few without scoring, that'll soon keep the stupid fornicators off the pitch

Think you may need to revisit the last 12 pages. See how many times you can go 3 or 4 posts without people being referred to as idiots, morons, clowns, backwards, chavs, drunks, drug users, onanists, thugs, children, hooligans, immature, dimwits, twáts, attention seekers, simpletons, morons, díckheads, people who would swing for a steward (?!), nutters, pathetic, tinpot, anarchists or just plain dícks.

And for what, less than 10 people spending 5 seconds each in the very corner of the pitch?

That’s my issue with the whole thing. People whipping themselves into an absolute frenzy, probably because they’re bored, for nearly a week now and contorting themselves into all manner of position to justify their faux outrage (let’s be honest, that’s what it is, almost entirely confected and for show).

If kick offs get moved or allocations cut, will it stop anyone going on the pitch? Nope. But people will back it using the language above, blaming the undesirables. It’s a good job none of the people on this thread have ever done anything wrong in their lives, we should have some of them canonised on the pitch at half time!

Sounds pretty tedious so I'm not wading through 12 pages of it. The club statement is pretty clear about why they need it to stop and is very respectful and understanding. Given the efforts and investment of the new owners and how well things are going it doesn't seem like a huge ask to me. What difference it will make, whether the rules and laws are proportional to the offence and the sobriety, intellect and moral compasses of those encroaching are secondary to that.
